    We had one of the best meals have have ever had out. This was our 2nd wedding anniversary and what an incredible evening we had. The food and service were incredible. We booked our next reservation after our appetizers and can’t wait for our next return. I see why they are so hard to get a reservation. Worth the wait! Thank you very much and see you next time. We also had two cocktails, the Arancini and the braised Pork appetizer. We brought a lot home but we just could not choose. Amazing.

    We went here to celebrate a graduation. The view was nice, the service was very good and the drinks were good. Most of the food was really good but my scallop entree was just ok. Overall a good experience but pricey (which we already knew but went anyway for the special occasion. Very big downfall for me was the noise level. We were in a corner but it was still difficult to have a family discussion.

    We shared the wedge salad and the halibut special. The halibut was good but a little overpriced since halibut should be in season now in Alaska.

    As always, John is the best part of the experience! There was a large party who were extremely loud and should have been asked to quiet down; we actually left early and took our food home because we couldn’t enjoy ourselves due to their table being so disturbing!!

    Dining at Lucia’s is an absolute pleasure. The food is excellent, always hot, and with superb presentation. We have never had a bad experience there as the waitresses and friendly and polite. Our most recent trip was yesterday and our waitress “Kate” was just the best. 5 stars and climbing!

    My husband and I have been wanting to see what the rave was all about at Lucia’s. Prior to going, we didn’t understand how it took months to get a reservation. However, after eating there, we totally get it! The food was to die for. Our server Tommy, was the absolute best and made our night even better. Even though we were super stuffed from our appetizers and dinner, we squeezed room to try the big item on the desert menu, and being 5 months pregnant, I haven’t stopped thinking about it and might just make the 40 min drive back for that alone!!!

    Was surprised to see the bathroom spackled but not painted in spots and that dawn dish soup was put out for hand soap... for the amount of money dinner was, couldn't get even wegmans hand soap? When i am out for dinner at a nice place, the last thing i want to think about is doing the dishes and thats what my hands then reminded me of for the rest of the meal.

    My husband and I visited Lucia's on the Lake by chance when I looked at Open Table and there was 3 openings when this restaurant is usually booked solid. The openings were all before 5pm but that was fine with us because we were ready to go out early anyway. We arrived on time and were seated in the bar area at a hightop table which had a nice view to outside and the water across the street. We ordered the Bang Bang Shrimp for an appetizer, the shrimp were big and well prepared. The sriracha sauce on the side gave it a nice kick. We both had the special, Alaskan Halibut with roasted potatoes and topped off with a tomato pesto sauce. It was delicious. If you can get in to this highly desirable restaurant I would definitely recommend it.

    A very good experience overall, though I am not completely sure why this is the hardest reservation to get in Buffalo right now, outside of the sunset view, which is absolutely breathtaking. First, the food. The bang bang calamari appetizer was fantastic and by far the best thing we ate throughout the evening. The cocktail I ordered was light and refreshing - I’m blanking on the name and the cocktail menu is not on the website but it had Aperol in it. The scallop risotto was also pretty good; the scallops were cooked perfectly. The presentation of the food overall was a bit lacking, I would say appropriate for a family restaurant but not quite as on-point as the prices and intent of the restaurant would suggest. The “vibe” was upscale casual. There are signs everywhere reading “please wear appropriate attire.” A button down and jeans was perfectly appropriate, and I did see some individuals with t-shirts on a Friday night. Our server was quite nice and very helpful; she did try to upsell us with vigor on the $140 Wagyu steak and pricy additions to our entrees, but didn’t push. Overall, I would go back again, mostly for the view and another round of the bang bang calamari!
