A treasure

Never, ever have I had a bad selection of food here. I especially love to dine here for lunch. The wine pairings for meals are excellent choices.

Various members of our family has been going to this restaurant for many, many years. The menu is not large but it changes frequently. The menu options are driven by seasonal availability. The food is always fresh, delicious and artistically presented. The desserts are to die for. We have had many meals here and have NEVER been disappointed.

Local & fresh with a very limited menu but executed well. They have a great local following and all cautious on what will happen now that Ms Watson has sold this gem.

Alone and needing an early dinner before a funeral in the area, Lucia's was perfect. jmac4453 mentioned the "farm to table" tradition, and I can tell you it is alive and well. The greens in my salad were perfect! I'd forgotten what a difference really, really fresh greens make. Lightly dressed, they were a perfect start to my dinner. I... More

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
