Lucille's American Cafe is a 1940s- style upscale diner that captures the "luncheonette" feel of that era's most popular eateries, but seasons it with a dash of 21st-Century finesse. It is conceived as a comfortable neighborhood respite from the home kitchen. Homemade food, served in a stylish but casual atmosphere, with large portions and value pricing make it particularly attractive to families with children as well as couples and singles. Take-out and delivery service, as well as catering, are available and just a phone call away.Old-fashioned oscillating fans are hung on the walls over the dining room. Liberal use of dark wood, ceramic tile, chrome, leatherette, fabric, mirrors, bullet- shaped hanging light fixtures and wall sconces contribute to the feeling of authenticity. The predominant colors are seafoam green, black, taupe and ivory, selected for a 1940s palette. They complement the interior design and are lively, but easy on the eyes.Seating is provided in booths or free standing tables. The chairs are framed in chrome, like those found in a typical family kitchen in the 1940s, and finished in black leatherette. The booths are upholstered in a combination of seafoam green and black. Also offered are patio tables that overlook a vast lake, the perfect atmosphere on a brisk day.Owners Paul & Beth Nunez believe that high quality food and friendly service will keep guests coming to Lucille's. The philosophy is simple: Do everything possible to exceed guests' expectations in food, service and atmosphere. Lucille's wants guests to feel good enough about their dining experience that they would tell others of their experience.

I almost didn't go because of other reviews. Elliot provided great service from start to finish! The food was exactly what is says it is "comfort food". Soup was home made and delicious, dinners were very good and brownie mountain dessert was great! Is it the Ritz Carlton, No, but it is a great... read more

My wife and I have been going to Lucille's for six years. We usually drop in for a late lunch and have rarely been disappointed. The restaurant's ambience is nostalgic with a late 1940's early 50's decor. The leather booths and stool chairs are very old school but give the restaurant a homey feeling that puts you at ease upon... More

If you wan to experience a fresh home made cook meal, look no further. Their food is fresh, nicely prepared and good. Very nicely priced, pleasant atmosphere. Bring your family and friends and enjoy a good meal. They now have takeout, which is very convenient. They have great sandwiches too and desserts. I don't think you can go wrong here.... More

Are these paid reviews? I've lived in Weston for a while and was in Lucille's Cafe almost a dozen of times. It was never satisfying and never the home cooked stile, I would've expected and would've loved to eat. The "home cooking stile" at Lucille's is just an upfront apology, that the meals never really look nice when served. It's... More

What a nice surprise when I found Lucille's American café. It's Tucktaway in a shopping center but don't let that fool you it is wonderful wonderful food. Quite a varied menu. Great salads, inventive sandwiches, and wonderful service. I stopped while working in Florida and I'm hoping to be back soon to eat there again.

I visited this restaurant with a coworker during lunch time and the overall experience was not special. As soon as you walk into the restaurant you are faced with a very cozy diner atmosphere, with wooden accents. Near the entrance you will be greeted by the hostess, and for a table of 2 we had to wait around 10 minutes.... More
