Oh my! We happened to go here during Restaurant Week so they had a special menu. Our waiter was friendly and approachable. He was able to answer our questions about the menu items. Our food came in good time and was served hot. Everything tasted wonderful! The menu is limited and changes seasonally. Gorgeous presentation. My suggestion: make a reservation,... More

this was my first visit to the restaurant. A limited menu but this is down to the freshness of the items available. Good beer and wine choice to accompany an excellently prepared meal. Staff were very curteous , impeccable service and reasonably priced. I will be visiting again when in Minneapolis

Not a large menu so may want to scan on internet before you go. Great salads and deserts. Nice setting and nice staff who were professional and made it a nice experience. Reserved on Open Table. Nice bakery next door they also run where you can pick up something for breakfast if you are traveling. I think it closes at... More

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
