    Absolutely filthy oysters - what's going on that you can't rinse the silt and dirt from the outside of the shells so that the oysters themselves aren't covered in particles? Also, one too many of them have shell fragments that diners discover once they've already placed them in their mouths. If the oyster shuckers don't know what they're doing, hire ones who do. You owe it to your patrons, even at $1 an oyster Happy Hours not to serve oysters with so much dirt on them....you never did this before.

    Diver scallop appetizer was very nice and light. Server directed me to their shimp dish items and was very pleased. Can't recall the dish name but it was shrimp and seafood in a tomato broth with rice....to die for! Husband had the schnitzel and it was good but I am German have to say I make a better schnitzel. Not bad mine is better :)

    Very poor service. It took several times to get a drink in a clean glass. We for some reason had 2 waiters and only saw them to drop off food and check. Food was very poor quality. Asked for extremely well done burger, came back pink. Incredibly noisy and very dirty. Things like flies and garbage on the floor. Dust and crumbs in windowsills. Disappointing for someone exploring New Orleans.

    This was my first stop for my birthday trip to New Orleans and I 100% recommend this place. The service was great, food was amazing (I recommend the shrimp & grits) to top it off they got me the bread pudding which was so nice and tasted amazing. Definitely try this place out if your in the area.

    We lived here when Luke first opened and it was one of our favorite places. Returning here after years and the level has definitely declined. Prices are high and the chicken tenders ordered for our 5 year old were returned because they were still raw inside. Not a good look. Necessary apologies were made and a complimentary dessert (not taken) was issued but overall we didn’t have a positive experience.

    We have eaten here many times and it has been terrific until last night. The lettuce and avocado in the oyster salad was brown and the entrees very salty. There were three very loud drunk ladies next to us that destroyed the ambiance. Hopefully just a bad night

    We enjoyed "Happy Hour" @ Lukes where the staff were attentive and swift. Oysters on the half shell fly out of the kitchen @ $1.00 each and are a nice prelude to anything coming later in the evening. We also enjoyed a bowl of gumbo which was divine. Thank you Lukes for a lovely stop on our New Orleans food tour.

    The food and total experience was very disappointing. We started with cocktails which were just…okay. We shared a fried oyster salad. The greens were crisp and dressed nicely. The oysters were fried well but far too salty. The blackened trout and cauliflower were nothing special. The swordfish was tasty however the corn/okra side was just lukewarm and not very good at all. Didn’t send it back to be reheated because I wasn’t going to eat it.

    Service was okay maybe the server was having an off day which happens. This place was recommended to me so I was excited but not impressed. The potatoes were wonderful and the brussel sprouts had great flavor and I loved the slices of pepper on them. The gumbo was not a good choice. The oysters were great. The cinnamon rolls looked great but that's about it. My friends didn't enjoy their burger. Pretty hard to mess up a burger but...

    The oysters & gumbo were delicious! They were clearly understaffed so it took quite a while for things to come out but our waiter was lovely about it. If you want to taste some creole cooking, this is a good spot for lunch. Pretty casual. Not too touristy either, which is always welcomed! Would visit again.

    Enjoyed a lunch of oysters and shrimps. Great service. Lunch Menu could be more robust but reverted to oysters on the half shell. Will come back during happy hours as the oysters are excellent.
