Top Notch

Dined here with a local on a week night and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We started with the calimari which was so much yummier and lighter than most. For my entree I had a seafood pasta special which was delicious. Capped it off with a creamy creme brûlée. Outstanding!

The restaurant had an odor as we entered, the upstairs manager had a very unpleasant attitude; our waiter Brian, was slow and disinterested in good service to our party. We were seated up against a wall in the downstairs dining room with little room to move, with a column directly behind one of the guest chairs. The downstairs dining room... More

Went on the recommendation of friends on a busy Friday night with two other couples. We we seated at the time of our reservation at a large table. The service was very attentive and thoroughly explained the many specials for the night. We started off with salads and soup and they were both excellent. The pasta and fish dishes were... More

We haven't been to LouCas since we moved from Edison 9 years ago. We were there recently and thoroughly enjoyed the food. Everything was well prepared and nicely presented. the Caesar salad was excellent as was the bouillabaisse and veal francese. There were many specials, so many that they should have printed an insert for the menu. They do cram... More

The first time I ate there was for a retirement party, and after far too many apps, they brought me out a perfectly cooked filet which is basically all I eat when I go out :) After that night, and knowing it was BYOB, I decided to get married there! The food at the wedding was talked about more than... More

I tend to order Seafood dishes, never had any issues with the quality or freshness of the shellfish. LouCas also offers a private banquet room, plus a... More

This felt like you were part of the family, dining at LouCas. Had dinner on a Monday night and it was pretty empty (less than 10 tables filled at 7:30 PM. However, the food was fresh, the menu quite broad and the service was quite good. Overall, impressed.

First... BYOB means: Friends that don't drink Don't Overpay if sharing the Dinner Tab. Second...LouCas menu is enormous, they cook most every dish two or more ways, 6 Edison friends of 40 years met with spouses to enjoy the amazing appetizers and dinner with various bottles of wine and liquor, the crab cake app was wonderful, spending 20 years on...

We were taken to Lucas by our relatives, they said it was always consistent. We really liked the food and service. The place was very crowded but it wasn't too noisy and we could carry out conversation easily without raising voices. Lots of great seafood with many vegetarian options. Portion were generous and well presented. My only criticism is the... More
