Best late night happy hour in Uptown

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.

Four of us had lunch on a sunny Saturday. They have a brunch menu on both weekend days that is excellent. However I asked if they could make one of their hamburgers I had heard so much about. A quick check with the kitchen came back with a yes. Three of us ordered them. The fourth ordered an omelet with... More

Our first meal since the change in ownership. The food, ambience and service continue the tradition of excellence that has been Lucia's hallmark! Well done. We will be back very soon.

Brunch Made us Sick After eating brunch here one sunny afternoon - my girlfriend and I both got ill from our meal. Between vomiting my girlfriend called to tell the manager what happened and did not even receive an apology - the manager brushed her off. Hearing my girlfriend's treatment I called up as well and received the same run... More

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
