    Lucques was great. I went there for a business lunch meeting and was very impressed with the service, atmosphere, and most of all the food!

  • The best food
    by  on 08/09/2011

    This place has a chef that takes wonderful, fresh ingredients and makes them a master piece. I am a food snob and can honestly say this is worth the $$. Thanks for a wonderful meal.

  • Such bad attitudes
    by  on 01/28/2011

    C'mon! So we go for restaurant week and the choices are labelled with an asterisk. My partner can't decide what to order so we're told my order won't go in until both are decided. Fine, we say, no problem. This is where the attitude starts. I get the restaurant week items, partner decides to get a starter of squid and the night's chicken dish. Mine, citrus salad, steak (medium) and chocolate torte. Quality of the fare is acceptable, steak a bit tough, chicken, salty; not on par with other less expensive places... Can't quite see the appeal of Lucque's from the food side. But now know the attitude of the manager and waitstaff leans heavily on snarky remarks and bad attitude. Problem #1 lukewarm steak, precut in strips, not medium as ordered. Didn't want to wait for an explanation. Glad I didn't, because Problem #2 was older waiter charging us for hot water claiming he thought it was tea, ok, fine, that's possible; his remark as he took away the check to correct, ""we don't charge for hot water, but other restaurants do."" WTF??? Dude. Manger looking dude walks around to our table and says, ""Sorry it is taking so long, your card doesn't seem to be authorizing."" Um, okay, since when does an AmEx black give anyone trouble. Better call AmEx and let them know I need a new #. Wanted really badly not to tip waiter, but other staff were doing what they normally do, and there were three other waiters involved bringing bread, first courses, main courses and clearing up. Sorry, Susan Goin and other Goins, really wanted to enjoy, but sad to say won't be returning. Hope you get new waiters and manager!!!!

  • Lucques is yummy
    by  on 11/11/2010

    Lucques is as legendary for its Sunday Suppers as it is for its James Beard, award-winning chef Suzanne Goin (who also happens to be a Brown alum, for you snobby Ivy-Leaguers). As an aspiring member of the glitterati, I can only afford the Sunday chow but if this prix fixe menu is any preview of the menu at large, I'd better get working on finding myself a rich husband so I can go to Lucques any night of the week and eat with wild abandon. Anyone reading this review who thinks he can fill those sugar daddy shoes, contact me directly. Edit Remove

    Delicious, but a little disappointed. Fine line between delicate and bland, and some of the dishes tilted toward uninspiring. Expensive.

  • What a drag!
    by  on 01/31/2010

    I guess I'm just not that hip. When I go out for a romantic meal, I don't want to feel like I'm sharing it with my husband plus the strangers at every neighboring table. Is a little elbow room such a bad thing? Anyway, we had ourselves transferred to the patio for a little more privacy. This was fine, but why do two person table have to be sooooo small? Every time a new item comes to the table I feel like I'm in some sort Vaudeville act, trying to rearrange all the pieces, balancing saucers on my head. Adding to the clutter, every menu was attached to a board with a rubber band. The wine menu was about ten pages long. I had to remove it from said clip board to read the top few lines. Not having a lot of disposable income we chose the least expensive white at $36, for which we paid dearly. Not only did it have a screw top, but it was horribly sour and bitter. Guess what? There are decent bottle of wine in this vast world of ours that are not exorbitantly priced, taste good and have a cork. I'd be happy to recommend a few. We skipped starters because of the shear expense. Luckily, they served almonds and olives with coarse salt on the side which were quite nice (the highlight of the meal in fact). Now for the main event. I had three rubbery, bland scallops a top a gooey, overworked squash puree with a pool of bacon grease. My husbands fish was respectable, however the mayonnaisey slaw beneath was inexcusable. Needless to say, we also skipped dessert. The thought of giving this establishment anymore of our dough was just too painful. I'm really not sure how they've stayed in business so long.

  • Consistently excellent food, a solid restaurant
    by  on 02/11/2009

    What can I say, Lucques continues to amaze. The location is nice, the ambience is relaxed and the food is just perfect. I ordered a fish dish which was so flavorful, probably the best fish dish I have had in years. The waiter was not pushy at all. The hostess could have been more welcoming but oh well, the food makes up for it. A perfect place for true fine French cuisine.

  • Suzanne Goin is the best of the best!!
    by  on 09/19/2008

    What can I say, there isn't a detail left to desire... the team behind Lucques (especially Suzanne Goin) is genius! The food is perfectly executed and the decor is simple and understated but warm & inviting. My favorite time to go is Sunday, when the Supper is anything but ordinary. Truly LA's best restaurant!!!
