Mushrooms!

I would return to Cafe Lurcat for no other reason that the wild mushroom appetizer. A variety of delicious wild mushrooms sever on brioche toast drizzled with basalmic. Do a 14 inch version of this and call it pizza! But there's much much more. Rich and tender braised short rib on oversized egg... read more

Wow, can't say enough about Cafe Lurcat. The ambiance is bright, welcoming and very beautiful view of Loring Park. The food was exceptional. The apple, cheese and chive salad was amazing. Light yet very tasty. For entrees our table had the salmon, crab cake, ahi tuna and beef tenderloin we are wonderful. I have had many ahi tuna entrees but... More

What a lovely restaurant! Service and food were just great. The spring rolls were the best ever - filled with fresh tuna. The drinks from the bar were excellent and the salads top-notch. Just traveling through; but would definitely return over and over if I lived here.

Other reviews are accurate, the food is very good. The restaurant is nicely appointed and the building is beautiful. However, the prices for entrees are steep considering the portion size and I don't think it was worth the cost. I understand the quality of the food is high and I've had many wonderful meals other places and generally the portion... More

Had a fantastic evening at Café Lurcat! Everything we tried was delicious.....apple and cheese salad, mushroom appetizer, cauliflower and an amazing sea bass. The desserts were great too, especially the profiterole. Lovely atmosphere. Great service. Will definitely be back!

We often have Easter Brunch at a restaurant, and the places we pick almost always put on their best showing for Easter, but Cafe Lurcat surprised us by being one of the best meals ever on this busy day. For Easter many restaurants have a buffet of both breakfast and dinner foods. I guess they're popular because anyone can eat... More

We were a party of 6. Three had the Sea Bass and loved it. The other three had each one of the three specialties. I had the Squid Ink Linguine with Lobster and thought it was rather salty, but didn't want to say anything. Another had the Stroganoff. It's only when he said his meal was salty did I say... More

I've only eaten once but yearning to go back. The food was truly amazing. The fish was cook to perfection. This is hard to beat in term of good American food.

Cafe Lurcat is a romantic gem anytime with very good food and wine for reasonable prices. The way the space is designed, I feel myself relaxing every time I go there. It's location on the edge of Loring Park which is a quiet place on the edge of downtown adds to it's ambiance. On Sundays they do a fixed price... More
