I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. We arrived about 10 minutes before our reservation. Had a seat at the bar. At the exact time of our reservations they came and got us and lead us to our table. The service was excellent. The food was excellent. The prices were quite reasonable.

Not to be confused with Luce in Hamden, which is also yummy.... I had the tips, and they were great to the last bite. The chocolate lava cake with French vanilla ice cream was the perfect dessert. Enjoy some grown-up time in the restaurant or the bar area.

Luce has it all--superb food (their fresh fish is simply amazing), excellent, professional service and a relaxed and beautiful ambiance. There is absolutely nothing to complain about this wonderful restaurant--Luce offers a dining experience to be savored every time.

Plus the main server asked if we would like chicken or shrimps in our salad and omited to mention the chicken was $10 extra with the salad. finally one of us went with the today's... More

The service was superb. I got taken care of right away and had a great waitress Lauren. Lunch was absolutely fabulous starting with the clams casino rolling into the mesclun salad leading up to the blackened chicken panini ending with tirimisu. Perfectly executed meal with a nice presentation.

We went there for an early dinner and sat in outdoor area since the weather was perfect for that. Also, we were dressed very casually to sit inside. None of the entrees were appealing to us so we decided to order a few appetizers. They were good but not wonderful. They were just OK. The service was acceptable. We have... More

Fell short almost immediately. We found a used sugar packet (empty) in our bread basket, after having taken a bite of bread (which tasted a bit stale). For that misstep we were given a free dessert, which was cheesecake that we barely touched. It tasted like artificial sweetener and was awful. We split two apps (figs with blue cheese and... More
