We ate Easter Brunch here as a family. We were on vacation and happened upon this little yummy gem. We were all pleased with our meals. The Popovers were amazing! Everything was delicious. The service was friendly and fast. I wish I lived in Uptown so I could eat here every day.

There is actually two separate places here - the "restaurant" and the "wine bar". I ate in the restaurant. It's a smaller place in a neighborhood of sorts and the food is great. It is a finer dining place in terms of the food but the atmosphere isn't over the top formal. The entrees rotate daily and are limited to only few but they don't disappoint. There are a few staples to round out the part of the menu that changes regularly. They also have smaller plate options if you're not quite as hungry or want to mix it up a bit. When we were there, some in our party had the pan-seared trout special while others had the braised bison, both with appropriate sides. Everyone enjoyed what they had tremendously. Desserts were outstanding! Another thing that was really nice was even though it was crowded, they didn't rush us.

Lucia's fills a large part of the southern block at 31st and Hennepin in vibrant Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis. This destination spot has much to offer by it's division into three different venues. Lucia's deli opens early for coffee and great food offerings for a quick, informal bite to takeout. People from the neighborhood will stop in to take advantage of great baked goods. Somewhat later in the day Lucia's Restaurant and Lucia's Wine Bar offer to distinctly different vibes but all three offer great food and great service!

We usually have lunch here when we visit uptown. It has been consistently good. On the last visit there, my wife had the fish and it was excellent. I had the Frittata du Jour and it was exceptional. A great spot

We have been here many times over the past 10+ years! and this remains one of our favorites in the entire Twin Cities Metro area. We have ALWAYS had terrific food, and their service is always exemplary. Our recent visit for a Sunday brunch with Emily as our server was one of our best ever! Highly recommended.
