A bit disappointed when asked how my meal was and I told him my entire plate of food was way too salty. He just said, "oh, sorry about that" and walked away. No offer to fix it. For the price of the meal and quality of restaurant, you'd think they'd get it right and if not, ask how they can.

Great service from the moment we walked in. The host was wonderful, waiter was superb. Great food, exceptional Tuna Carpaccio was the best we’ve ever had and the Beignets were a great finish to the meal

So very disappointing. The restaurant was not very busy and there was only one server that we saw. The offerings for wine-by-the-glass is extremely limited and the prices are laughably expensive. The mixed green salad would have been very good except for being overly-dressed so the fresh greens were soggy. (Also, note the side salads are HUGE—-they can serve 3 people easily—-such a waste of food). I had the sole which was lovely. But my husband’s steak was cold, although the balance of the dish was warm. It was prepared well but stone cold. When we mentioned it to the server she sent a manager to apologize who then offered to comp his entire entree—unexpected, appreciated, and a very nice service-recovery. We were offered a free dessert as it was my husband’s birthday and he chose the pecan pie which was unremarkable. Overall a very disappointing experience and we booked Lucy’s hoping for a very special evening to celebrate my husband’s birthday.

First time diners x 2. Lovely setting outdoors. Excellent service. I ordered wrong selections as I was not pleased (miso soup & linguine Pepe). My dining companion thoroughly enjoyed her meal (beet salad & branzino).
Must take it in stride but wasn’t as tasty of a meal as I had hoped.

Gorgeous setting. Great service. Food was bland. Friend ordered multiple vegan sides. Said they were tasteless. I had the corn risotto with lobster. Needed salt and pepper. Disappointed. But gazpacho was the BOMB

We are locals and were very pleased with the food and service we received at Lucy's. The outdoor setting was perfect and made the night special. Juan was our server and he also made the night special. Juan is the ultimate professional yet he has the ability to make you feel at home and comfortable.

Our server (Juan) was very attentive without being a distraction. We had the guacamole/homemade chips and the Pork Ribeye w/greens, fresh corn and roasted peaches for two. The appetizer was very good but the entree' was out of this world. The dipping sauce was also homemade and the best sauce I have ever tasted!

This is something I’ve encountered a lot with restaurants/Open Table. I’ve tried to get a later table but they are listed as unavailable only to get to the restaurant and there is plenty of seating at the time I originally wanted. It is not a COVID issue because the tables are already spaced way apart. Are restaurants only giving non-prime times to restaurant reservation sites?

We were half an hour late -reservation at 1:30 and we arrived 1:58. They close at 2PM! The staff could not have been nicer. They checked with the manager who approved seating us and we ordered quickly. We were so impressed that they accommodated us. Thank you for the amazing customer service!

The truffles fries were delicious as was the crab cake. Shrimp tacos were very good also. I recommend Lucy for sure.
