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).

We ate outside on a beautiful evening. The beet salad was wonderful and the strip steak done to perfection. The bartender made a great French Martini and our servers were friendly and very good at their jobs. Thanks for an enjoyable experience!

Great service, good food, best espresso martini I've ever had. We aren't familiar with the area. We chose Luce based on reviews and how beautiful the sidewalk presence is. We had veal scallopini (excellent sauce) and chicken medallions ( lots of mushrooms). Just a really nice evening.
