I would describe Good Luck as an American style Tapas restaurant since you share dishes that you order. They also had several specials tonight in addition to the menu that is on line. They chef has a real good talent on combing different flavor and textures of food that are different. The only downside is this place can be noisy... More

Gotta get the goodluck burger and fries! The burger is grilled to perfection and worth the $20. I also had the chicken, lentils, pizza and smokehouse platter. All were delicious!

Beautiful interior, great build-out. High ceilings and great vibe. Although the food was fine, I can't remember a thing about my meal. Very ordinary as I recall, but the restaurant's acoustics are such that it is deafening to eat inside this room.

Every time I return to Good Luck for dinner and drinks, I remember exactly how much I adore it. The ambiance, the cocktails, the food, the presentation, their seasonal menu changes - it's all part of a wonderful experience. My favorite meal: order a carafe of the house red, order the burger to share with someone you like enough to... More

We discover this place when we came up to visit our son at RIT. Good luck is by far the best place in Rochester for a burger.

The atmosphere is the best part; casual and upcycled. We saw diners of all ages, our group ranged from 70 y.o. to 23 y.o. We were there a couple hours and it was a very pleasant meal. Food is innovative ... for instance, the desserts included 2 ice creams. Vanilla and Thai basil chocolate chip! We tried both and some... More

I visited Good Luck with my wife and adult son, and could not have been more pleased. The food menu is not large but the craft cocktail menu is, and each item served is unique to the kitchen, nicely researched, the components imaginatively paired and prepared, and the whole presented by a very friendly and attentive wait staff. The restaurant... More

I was there with my wife and my son with his wife and 3 young adults, the oldest 16 and EVERY item we ordered was outrageously delicious. We started out with a margherita pizza and appetizer platter that included items I've never had before and all were great. The braised oxtail was in a spicy tomato sauce and my 13... More

What I really love about Rochester is that it has a great sense of place, while still having enough low-cost areas that clever entrepreneurs can start new-style places like this one. We ate very, very well here, and drank good cocktails. Also, I rarely travel with kids, but on this trip we were with friends and their 5-year-old, and they... More
