We went there for lunch today and were disappointed. I had the french onion soup. While the soup was tasty enough, it was served lukewarm at best. One of our sons had the hamburger which, while ordered medium, arrived medium rare. The service was friendly, but slow, which may account for the temperature of the soup.

Lucia's was recommended to my wife and I by my sister-in-law. It was one of the best meals we've had in a long time. The tomato soup was delicious, having a nice texture, rich, but not overpowering flavor, and some surprising spiciness. It was garnished with some olive oil which gave it a nice nutty flavor. My cheddar cheeseburger was... More

Minneapolis is blessed with many incredible restaurants, but Lucia's has always been our favorite, and we have been regulars since the 80,s! Lucia was doing farm to table before any of us knew what it was, we just knew it was good and kept coming back! The menu, which changes weekly features 4-5 different entrees, always featuring a vegetarian as... More

It's been awhile since we've been to Lucias and we aren't sure why! Food was fantastic. Service at the bar was fun and enjoyable. We had a table reserved but decided to eat dinner at the bar when we found 2 says and a wonderful bartender.

Lucia does a wonderful job taking what is fresh, in season and adjusting her menu accordingly. I have been coming to this restaurant for over 15 years and the quality is always consistent. I love the simplicity of the environment - but yet it takes on a romantic vibe in the evenings with the candles lit. Last night I had... More

Crowded at weekday lunch, nowhere open to park so had to walk a block and a half. Got a green salad with olives as an appetizer. Olives were good; salad was ok. Vinagerette dressing was tasty. Service was slow, but you had to know it would be from the number of people there. Would have been less crowdede if the... More

Had a lite dinner with a friend outside on the patio. We shared the petite filet with bearnaise, a mushroom flat bread and charred broccoli with feta, fresh basil with a hint of lime. Everything was Delicious. The patio was a buzz with the uptown crowd. Nice wines by the glass. Many great choices in Minneapolis but make this one... More

A limited dinner menu that changes weekly more or less, but none the less never bad food, but usually very good but not great food. Small and cramped tables for four barely accommodate four. The noise level this weekday night was tolerable, unlike it is on a weekend when you can't hear the person sitting opposite you unless they raise... More

We had brunch here. The patio is nice although they could use another umbrella or two. It was very warm but too nice to sit inside. The frittata was served with a side salad and was very good. My son had the French toast with cherries and mint and said it was also very good. His girlfriend had the smoked... More
