If you are celebrating something, or if you have a lot of disposable income, this is a great place. Not cheap, but fair for the quality. Everything about this place is top notch. I really love this place for brunch and dinner.

The parking lot dining areas are not attractive and at night cold. The "night" menu was very limited. All and all it was a unpleasant experience.

Breakfast and lunch have always been enjoyable! I would not recommend it for dinner!

Happy Hour is a fake - they told us they "couldn't update Google" so we were misled into thinking they had one. No Happy Hour. Five minutes after we sat down and ordered drinks and an appetizer we were told that they had lots of reservations coming in (we had a reservation), which felt like a subtle dig that we should be ordering more food lest we be replaced by diners who were going to spend more money than us. Had a few rounds of drinks and each of them took 10+ minutes to get from the bar to our table. $100 for 6 drinks and chips.

Go for brunch instead.

Lunetta's outdoor space during these trying times is very comforting. Their food is delicious and their wait staff is excellent. We went there with friends we hadn't seen in a long time, and they enjoyed it as well. We continue going back with friends, out-of-towners, etc., and everyone loves Lunetta!

Open Table recently published "100 Neighborhood Gems". Not only is Lunetta one (and at the top of my list) but should always be recognized for Chef Raphael Lunetta's creative, delicious and locally sourced cuisine, especially the weekly tasting menus. One other thing worthy of note, Lunetta was there for "the neighborhood" during the dark days of the pandemic, keeping the staff at work by providing drive-in/ take out services and, later, increased outdoor dining capacity.

Outdoor tables are great. They're not too close together, and it's easy to talk and be heard. The food is always great quality. I'll be back!

Great food. Our server seemed to have too many tables, so drinks took ~20 minutes to come out. He forgot one coffee that didn’t arrive until after our meal (ordered upon seating)

Whenever we eat here we always remark at how much we love it. Great staff, never too crowded, amazing food. Eating on the west side is never cheap, but getting crap food for your dollar is easy. Not the case at Lunetta. Love this local eatery!

Lovely restaurant with very nice wait staff. Disappointed that we made a reservation for outdoor patio area and only seats were the one table in the sun. So we sat inside, instead of waiting 30-45 minutes. Service was fine, as they were busy. But the table was tiny and barely gels all the food we ordered. My head was in the plant leaves. Oh well…ambiance and experience could have been better for a $200 lunch. But was happy with the food.

The service staff was inattentive and slow. We ate at 5:00 p.m. and there were a few customers. We waited for 20 minutes before we had to call someone over to order drinks and appetizers. We had eaten there a few weeks before and the food was excellent. This time the food not nearly as good. The salad dressing was tasteless on the side salad and the chopped salad. Compared to the first time I had the dish, the barbecued salmon came with a mediocre assortment of vegetables. The food and the service at this restaurant is very inconsistent and we may not go back.

I was so disappointed. I have loved Lunetta in the past and as excited to share the experience with a friend. The bathrooms were under construction in the restaurant so we sat on the “all day” side. The menu was not the menu I was familiar with and the ambiance was awful. I felt like I was eating brunch. No one explained when we made the reservation that the restaurant side was closed and the woman who sat us was terribly unapologetic. I had a reservation for Saturday night that I canceled. I am so disappointed. I loved this restaurant before Covid.

This was my first time at Lunetta. With COVID variants, I will only eat in outdoor spaces and with three patios, there were options. I had the grilled chopped salad. The ingredients were very fresh and it was delicious.
I loved Lunetta and will return.

Loved the fact that they have 3 outdoor patios and the tables were spaced apart. Our reservation, through Open Table, was honored immediately and we were seated in under 5 minutes. Food was delish - it just took a bit to get served. Noise level was fairly high but as the patio cleared, it diminished and was definitely manageable. My friend and I truly enjoyed our brunch and we will return.

Delicious brick chicken and a steak that was done to perfection made for a perfect dining out experience. Lunetta has constructed 2 dine outside venues in addition to the patio area that is part of the restaurant. They are cozy spaces that accommodate appropriately spaced tables and allow for those of us who do not want to dine inside to be able to have a lovely dinner. Parking is easy, staff is professional and friendly.
We highly recommend Lunetta.

Host tried to seat us (a party of 2 with a reservation) as the first party in a patio area where an adjacent table was set up for an incoming party of 20. She then seemed offended when we asked to instead be seated at one of the empty tables we had seen in a different patio where there were other parties of 2 or 3. We thought *we* should have been offended that she tried to seat us at such a terrible table in the first place, but she did ultimately give us a better table.
