Delectable, Farm Fresh, and made us smile.

We chose Lucia's based on the menu, the ingredients, and the many positive reviews on Open Table. We were not disappointed from the appetizers to the desserts. Even though it is/was Restaurant Week the food was cooked and prepared as close to perfection for us. The beef tenderloin was moist and... read more

Admittedly I had very high expectations for Lucia's and while my entree was delicious the whole dining experience fell far short. To say the least I was disappointed. 1. Cocktails were over priced, especially the whiskey. 2. The jalapeño muscle sauce was seriously lacking strong flavor or spice. 3. Cheese plate was below average at best. It was more similar... More

Having read reviews and receiving a recommendation from a friend, I looked forward to lunching at Lucia's. I can only assume we hit the restaurant on an "off" day or perhaps the primary chef was on vacation. We were pretty disappointed. I ordered the salmon which arrived tepid and the turnips were so undercooked as to be inedible. My friend... More

Visiting from D.C., we stopped in Lucia's on a whim one Friday night. We split a salad and the duck entree, with a cocktail. Both dishes were well presented and prepared and the wait staff was professional. We sat on the patio on a warm evening and had a great time talking and people watching. We returned later in the...

We went to Lucia's on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. We found a cozy table and had prompt and friendly service by what seemed like the entire wait staff. The food was a very good value and with exceptional taste and presentation from starters to finish. EVERYONE around us was talking about the Willamette Valley Pinot.... More

Limited menu, which I liked, but the dish I ordered (a breakfast sandwich) was surprisingly bland and also very awkward to eat. Service was fine. Nothing special.

Go for Lunch. We unfortunately, went for dinner. Hostess was nasty. Service was incredibly slow and the food was hit or miss. Dinner is no longer an option here. Stick with brunch or lunch.

This restaurant is a gem. No changes because they still have the same chef that has been there for the last 5 years. I don't sense that he has gotten the credit that he deserves. Maybe the public will start giving Chef Ryan Lund a little attention. Great fresh food prepared in a classic fashion. We enjoyed a nice 4... More

This was such a treat to find this little restaurant. The food was presented in a unique way delicious way. I wanted to eat what I ordered but my husbands looked so good I wanted his too.

After 9:00 PM they have a great happy hour. House wines are always top shelf and you will fall in love with their $6 hamburger! It has a special (?secrete?) Alioli sauce.
