Stop looking outside for a second and you'd think you had just walked into a popular restaurant in France or Barcelona. The decor, the lighting, molding and chandeliers all glimmer and glisten as if plucked straight from Versailles herself. Mix in some Art and funk from the likes of Gaudi and you're halfway there. The spice market cocktail (recommended by... More

We had a somewhat large business group with varying tastes and everyone had an awesome meal, great wine and delicious desserts. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was uplifting. The decor was overwhelming with the chandeliers and unique artistry. It was a pleasant experience for the senses.

I was here for a business sales meeting for a large group. The area was so cute and it was a good fit for us with the private space. The staff was very attentive and made sure our wine glasses did not go empty! It was a pretty atmosphere and the food was well presented for such a large group.... More

The food at Cafe Lurcat is always delicious. The service is friendly and the setting is pleasant. The food is priced as you would expect at a nice restaurant. The only thing that I've had that wasn't excellent was the potato puree. It wasn't bad, but didn't have much flavor. I don't eat fish, but my wife orders it every... More

I had not been to this restaurant in several years and forgot how nice the atmosphere is. Love the high ceilings and the great view of Loring Park. It was fairly quiet (although nearly full on our Saturday night visit) and elegant without feeling stuffy. The food was very good, we shared as starters the Alaskan King crab leg and... More

Came here with a vendor in November and had a great meal. I thought the food was really good, and they were able to accommodate a fairly large group (10). Parking is terrible here. You either have to park several blocks away or opt for valet parking.

We had dinner early on a Saturday night before a concert. We were seated away from the bar, in the kitchen area, at a two-top by the windows. Was a little cool but it was quiet. We could have a conversation in normal tones. Our server Barrett was passionate, friendly, and knowledgeable but not overbearing. Everyone seemed genuinely glad to... More

Cafe Lurcat has an amazing atmosphere and ambiance. Moderate noise level. Great location in loring park. The food never disappoints. The hanger steak and roasted cauliflower are some of my favorites. The oysters are excellent. Fantastic food all around. Great wine list. Excellent service.

I expected the food and the service to be outstanding, given the reviews I had read. The food was good (not great), but the service was horrible. I can't think of any reason to go back. Our first waitress was either inexperienced or just incompetent. And when she disappeared halfway through the hour long wait for our food, we were... More
