Give Luce a try. Lunch menu is very affordable though dinning here dinner can be pricey. It is truly worth the visit. Another plus, this restaurant has free parking.

I'm a little hesitant to write this review, because this restaurant is a treasure. We came on a Monday night and were seated right away by the gentleman who turned out to be our wait person as well - a special shout out to Val. After placing our drink order, we perused the menu...and let me say it's difficult to... More

We were seated and promptly served fresh breads and ice water. Our server was attentive throughout the evening. We received our beverage order and after being offer several specials we placed our orders. The food from appetizers to main course was served with appropriate spacing. So enough about the wonderful service. The food was fabulous! All four if us enjoyed... More

This is the first time I have eaten at Luce, and it will be my last. The food was bad. For dishes that cost over $20.00, I want exceptional. Luce is far from exceptional. Plain and simple. I ordered the Kalamata Olive Crusted King Salmon. When I first cut into it, it was still raw in the center. The waitress... More

Luce is a best kept secret and rates with some of the best restaurants in New York City. Returning from the coastline outlets we stumbled upon Luce purely by accident on a Sunday evening. We were happily greeted and seated in a very romantic booth. The atmosphere is as eclectic as it is trendy! The veal chop is a must... More

Luce is fairly comfortable, and pleasant. I have found the specials to be more interesting than the standard menu, but often even more pricey. Luce tends to be for an occasion, not casual nights out. Service is generally responsive, but not what I would call warm. Very pleasant evenings, but I don't dash back on a weekly or even monthly... More

I was invited to dinner by some clients and Luce is one of their favorite restaurants. The service was great, very friendly and made you feel like family. I had the Tile Fish dinner special with rice and butternut squash, which was delicious. My friends mostly had steaks, which looked delicious. Given that they go here often, I'm sure they... More

I found Luce to be a true 5. Outside seating with plants and flowers separated you from the sidewalk. They were well kept too. The food was great and we did not leave a thing on our plates. We could not decide whose meal was better. Service was prompt and friendly. Loved the planters as you park. Take a look... More

I am giving this a 4 out of 5 because the wait staff was wonderful. Even through the roar of fire engines and ambulances from the hospital a mile away, they made the entire dinner special The food was tasty (I had tips, the potatoes excellent, the steak itself, good... though a bit "melted" into the sauce). But it was... More

Its been a number of times I've been to Luce. Love the food and the service. I would always prefer the Chef's Special meals. They are some of the most delicious food preps i have had lately. O, and their Cannolis are good too. Apart from the Ambience and Food Quality, the restaurant is conveniently located with ample parking place.... More
