This place is easily overlooked. So, there's not crowds of tourists there. The staff are keen to keep you happy, the food is awesome, menu choices really good. We'll be back.

We went on a holiday, which may have been part of the problem, but there weren't enough service staff and they ran out of poutine early in the evening. The food was ok, not great. The wine list was pedestrian. We were in town for...More

This place is located in the Byward Market, which is usually packed to the gills in the evening. So we were pleased to arrive at Chez Lucien without a reservation and easily get a table. We were placed on a kind of balcony overlooking the...More
