We had high expectations, and weren't disappointed. The food was exceptional and finely presented, the service was spot on, and the pricing surprisingly reasonable. I found the wine pairings were a perfect accompaniment to my meal. We will go back! There is also a delightful wine bar next door.

I have eaten at this restaurant for years and it never ever disappoints. The service is always wonderful, the food delightful, creative and delicious and such a beautiful venue. I will always recommend Lucia's as a perfect Uptown or Minneapolis place to eat and have fine dining.

We hadn't been to Lucias in awhile and decided it was time to go back! And we were not disappointed. Always fresh ingredients. Lucias does it right. Small menu done great. Excellent service. Great cocktails and wine. This is simply a restaurant that does it well consistently.

Small, simple menu driven by the fact they update weekly (and have been for the past 31 years!) Our server helped us choose an incredible wine. The gruyere/prosciutto/pesto flatbread was AMAZING. Chicken was perfect with creamed kale and scalloped potatoes. Spaghetti with lamb meatballs were simple and great. Disclaimer - Make sure to save room for dessert. The profiteroles were... More

I went to this restaurant based on a recommendation of a friend. The restaurant offers both outdoor and indoor dining and focuses on providing local ingredients. I enjoyed a salad and a nice glass of French Cabernet Sauvignon. The salad greens were very fresh and dressed nicely with a tasty lemon vinaigrette and included bits of pulled chicken breast. The...

Lucias really has three restaurants in a row on 31st in Uptown: fine dining, romantic bar and a carry out- cafe. Dependably wonderful and I've been there 2-3 times a week for 4 years. Neighbors will walk down the street for repeat evenings enjoying the organic, locally raised/grown foods. Way ahead of it's time, this restaurant is 30 years old!... More

Lucia is hands-down our favorite place for date night. It's nothing about the decor or the ambiance. It's a European-flavored bistro with the limited, fresh and local kind of menu you would expect to go with that. That's where the fun starts. They won't have the great thing you had last time (in a different season) and you might not... More

Restaurant Week brought me to Lucia's dine-in space for the first time. Terrific waitstaff, excellent wine, great selections for restaurant week and an overall fantastic experience. We had the mussels with jalapeño (perfect amount of heat), steak, salmon (great crispy skin) and a lovely raspberry almond crostata that was light on the almond taste but summery and delicious nonetheless. We... More

Lucia's has been serving local food with a different menu every week 31 years. It is a winning formula. Flowers on the table are a nice touch, as are larger bouquets on various counters. The kitchen was very accommodating and split our salads for us. The salads were fresh, lightly dressed, and delightful. We each had one of the four... More

A great spot for any meal. They have beautiful and tasty food and drink. I love going for wine and a cheese plate. Their baked good and tea are also great in the morning or a midday snack.
