This is a small quality restaurant that focuses on high quality food from whatever is fresh at the market. Great friendly staff. They have both wine you can buy and bring your own. Awesome to visit!

PRO's: Many people consider this Houston's finest BYOB restaurant. I agree, although the restaurant has a fine selection of reasonably priced wines if you choose to buy them from Lucio's. The white table cloth tables recently been replaced by marble tops and new chairs maintaining the restaurant's glamourous look. Service is definitely a plus. The limited menu has individual meat,...

I had been here a while back and only remembered that I had liked the patio. Too hot to sit out this time, but inside was nicer than I remembered. Food was excellent. Although you can bring you own wine for a modest corkage fee, they have a nice wine list. No problem for gluten-free for my celiac husband. Service... More

First time dinning and our experience was absolutely wonderful. The service was exceptional and all employees were very friendly as was the exceptional wine/beer menu after forgetting our wine at the house. We had Scallops with Risotto as well as the Hanger Steak. The steak had a beautiful char on the outside and was cooked to a perfect medium rare,... More

I went there last night for a quick dinner after a long flight. The service was great: Sean was friendly and knowledgeable, and gave a frank opinion when asked about the various dishes on offer. The decor lacked a bit: tiles on the floor, bland furniture, long rectangular mirrors on the walls: everything felt corporate and unoriginal, without any personality.... More

This was our second time to Lucio's, this time was to celebrate our anniversary. We brought our own bottle of wine to enjoy and the food here is wonderful. I love this restaurant because it is so quaint and the service is excellent.

Wonderful restaurant! Love the fact that you can bring your own wine and for a small corkage fee you are allowed to drink it. Food was wonderful! The escargot and clams for an appetizer were wonderful. We had the special for the night which was Atlantic cod and the scallops and the duck breast for entrees. They were all above... More

You may get a very good service once, then you may just be totally ignored by their staffs. They do have a nice back patio so.

Came to Lucio's to have a birthday dinner with my family. We had a table for 6 and ended up with two little children. The staff (Shawn was our server) were horrible and unaccommodating. When we arrived the restaurant was mostly empty and the staff did nothing to make arrangements for our party. They took a long time to come... More
