    Excellent food. I mean excellent. I wish the service was a little quicker, but it was a busy night. Love the wine menu and the Elk Shank was so tender and delicious. The fish soup was hearty. definitely would recommend for any occasion.

    Great wine selection. The menu has great options, and it was good food, but I wish more sides came with the meal or something was included with main courses. The tiramisu was delicious. Overall pricey $$$, but we knew that going into it and this was for a special occasion. I do recommend!

    Amazing food in a very beautiful place. Excellent service. Portions were really big (surprising in such a refined place). Deserts weren't on the same level of main course. They were just ok. But we went for the main course, and that was terrific.

    Food was excellent, as was the service. I had the snapper special and the tortellini side, both were great. Mela Verde salad was simple but very tasty. My only concern is that we were seated in a small round table for two and was in a pretty high traffic spot. The table for a restaurant that does a la carte sides becomes exceptionally crowded and you end up playing musical plates and drink glasses throughout the meal. The food and the service do make it absolutely worth going.

    Absolutely everything we all ordered was fantastic, and there were 6 of us. The $90 "Mare" seafood platter appetizer was outstanding, and a good value. Was more than enough for all of us a great starter. A couple of us veered off seafood for the entrée, ordering pasta dishes. And they were also great. Strong wait staff. Great cocktails. A bit loud, but we survived.

    Fantastic restaurant. Amazing food and wonderful service. The decor is also on point—trendy but still makes the space feel cozy and comfortable. The seafood and pasta are especially good. You can’t go wrong with the salmon with lobster ravioli.

    I was disappointed that the menu on line did not match the one at the restaurant. The one at the restaurant was much smaller. I will frequent LUCA on theViaduct which I think is better than this LUCA. This one was too noisy & it was too busy around our table

    The food wasn’t bad. It just didn’t seem worth the price. Someone in the back was also very heavy handed with the olive oil. Our caprese salad was swimming in it, as well as my sea bass. Also, we waited about 15 min for our server to come get our drink order and watched her chatting at the bar the entire time, she had no other tables. It wasn’t terrible, but not worth going back.

    We had 8 people for a business dinner. We were seated at a table much more suited for 6 which was placed in a very tight space. It worked, but was not ideal. It seems the restaurant was overbooked on this Tuesday night, especially with larger tables. It was very noisy in the restaurant, to the point where it was near impossible to hear any conversation from the opposite end of the table. The food was fine, nothing was necessarily bad, but it was not exceptional either considering the price. Our waiter did a good job in managing the less than ideal situation, although service for drinks was quite slow.

    I was a bit underwhelmed with the experience. For the money, I thought the food was average and the 4 other gusts felt that way as well. Very noisy environment. The server was above average and was friendly and attentive. For the money, there are better restaurants out there.

    Filet mignon with black truffle was very bland and very dry despite it being medium. Never had a pink dry steak. My step dad ordered the special which was a tomahawk or ribeye can’t remember which one but he was very disappointed as well. Same reason dry. And bland. Potatoes was good salmon was delicious!!! Salmon with lobster and ravioli! The waiter was very nice

    Service was great. Dinners were very good especially the sweet potato gnocchi w lobster and the halibut. It was extremely loud and hard to hear each other at the table but it was a busy Fri night. Our only complaint was the oysters. They were so small I thought the shells were empty. I’ve never seen oysters that little. They shouldn’t bother serving them right now if that’s all they have.

    The food was very good, however, the Table we were seat at and the overall experience was very disappointing. We did not know the main dining area was set up for a private party. We were seat at the busiest traffic area we would have possibly been set up at and it was non-stop. This was our anniversary dinner and there was nothing intimate or enjoyable about the experience. Our Server was great but he had no control over the chaos.
