Okay, the place is expensive. But the food is spectacular in its detail; conception is god, but execution is close to perfect. Vegetables and salad are composed by masters. Service is terrific; drinks are excellent. Try to sit on the patio if you can. This is rated as one of the best in LA and it certainly is.

From the time we entered Lucques, we had a wonderful time. The service is A+ and the décor charming. The mixologist created amazing cocktails with layers of flavor. The dinner and wine recommendation was perfect. At the close, the host called us a cab. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect meal. Great Chef. I loved my Barramundi with... More

Came to Lucques with my 2 adult daughters for the Sunday night prix fixe dinner. Started with delicious cocktails served with bread and butter plus a dish of olives and almonds. This was followed by a pre-determined 3-course dinner (2 entree choices). A very reasonably priced bottle of red wine was suggested on the menu - it was quite good.... More

Only two items on the main but great taste. Moderate prices for a full delicious meal which I would surely not miss if I go to LA again.

Came for my birthday and it was an absolutely super dinner in every way. Attentive service, but not too obtrusive. Olives and almonds are brought to the table with the bread and butter - crunchy, salty, chewy! The heirloom tomato salad was full of brilliant color and vibrant flavor. I ate one of the fish dishes for my entree -... More

We dined here and it was OK. Service was good and location was quite good. Food was very average and the menu lacked inspiration requiring us to search for a dish. Overall an average night but not hurrying back. Cost effective is a plus.

We have gone to Lucques on visits to L.A. for many years. We used to enjoy the Sunday Supper, a prix-fixe meal that was a nice way to enjoy the chef's creativity at a little bit of a deal (because there is little/no choice). The price has now gone up to $45 for three courses, and with a moderate bottle... More

For me, it's expensive down home food. Short ribs really are delicious. Service was excellent but layout of restaurant is odd and tight. Wine list is really too expensive.

In the course of a quick trip to Los Angeles, friends suggested that we meet at Lucques. My first visit...I liked it a lot. The food was excellent and the noise level, compared to the restaurants I'm used to in New York, made conversation easy. The staff was friendly and attentive. All around, a very nice experience.
