Californian
Since opening in 1998 Lucques has garnered extraordinary accolades and is now recognized as one of the country’s best restaurants. It's California cuisine with French and Mediterranean influences is served in the warm and intimate setting of the rustic carriage house of the original Harold Lloyd estate. One of the reasons for the all the acclaim is the Sunday Supper, the night that best exemplifies the original mission of owners Chef Suzanne Goin and Sommelier Caroline Styne, by offering seasonal prix fix menus that re-create the atmosphere of a relaxed family dinner.

Love Lucques. The tomato salad is delicious. Back for this every year. And love the cocktails by Christian - had some fabulous cocktails the night before that I thought were excellent, then at Lucques, Christian’s take it to another level - beautiful balanced. A real art.

My friend and I were given gift certificates for dinner at Lucques. Why? Because our
out of town mutual friend asked what she could give us for Christmas. It is absolutely one of our
favorite restaurants and we're both locals !! It is always a treat and never disappoints. Thank you again for a memorable evening.

A restaurant I was waiting to go to for a while and I think it was worth the wait. I was there for Sunday supper and I got the wine pairing with it. The menu was priced very well along with the wines and the servers were attentive and but still very approachable and kind.

Everyone in our table enjoyed the food from appetizer to dessert, this was a Sunday Supper menu. The fresh fish was Merluccius / Hake was excellent. The gnocchi was delicious and flavorful, cooked just right. The soft lighting and quiet ambience was soothing. The sommelier was amazing, really impressive with his knowledge on the wine pairings.

The Sunday Supper is a great evening of delicious and freshly prepared food. The cod this weekend was tender and very tasty. The pairing to the meal are also a treat with wonderful comments from the wine steward which add greatly to the experience. As always the staff is attentive and helpful with great suggestions for meals.

First of all we love this restaurant. Food and service are top notch. My only complaint is the time that they opened on a Friday night. We made a 6:00 pm early reservation because we had an 8:00 show to make. Our driver got us there 15 minutes prior and the doors were not open. The valet indicated that they don’t open until 6. We roamed around Melrose for a bit . Then came back at 6 , doors were still locked. Finally opened a few minutes later. Just won’t make a first time slot reservations again. Once we got in it was great as usual.

The food at Lucques is always delicious. Enjoyed my Heirloom Tomato Salad with Feta and Harissa and Slow-Roasted Salmon with Cucumber, Beet and Green Goddess Dressing. Looking forward to Rib Fest next month.

Still wonderful after all these years. Every time I have dinner at Lucques, I leave asking why I don't dine here more often. Everything is superb: Food, wine, service, setting. And always an eclectic mix of people.

Delicious meal - went for the Bastille Day Sunday Supper and had some beautiful plates (tomato tartine, steak tartare, strawberry and ricotta creme crepe.) Even the bread was terrific. I highly recommend the Sunday Supper nights. The bar manager is magical, and knows how to complement any dish -- or simply make a tasty cocktail.

We always celebrate Bastille Day. Sadly, we don’t always get to do it in France. But the dinner this evening was quintessentially French in spirit. We had, as we always do, an excellent experience. You don’t have to wait for a special occasion to enjoy yourself here. They will make whatever day it is a special occasion.

We were there for my husband’s 70th birthday. He lived in Paris for a couple of years when in his 20’s. The first time we came to Lucques, he said it was the best gastronomical experience he had had in Los Angeles. Since then, we have celebrated many special occasions here, although generally for the Sunday suppers. Every course is a delightful experience. The service is always friendly and professional. The atmosphere is elegant and comfortable. We can rely on Lucques to deliver the most creative and delicious meal every time.

In a city with many great restaurants, this is one of the best. The food is always excellent and the menu choice are revised and creative, giving you multiple opportunities for repeat visits without exhausting menu selections. The service is friendly and accommodating. The wine list is more than sufficient to pair wines with food choices. Prices are on the high side but well worth it. When weather is warm, sit on the patio. When winter arrives, sit near the fireplace.

We find the Sunday dinners at Lucques quite amazing. The food is very flavorful without overwhelming and the menu is put together with great attention to detail. The staff are very knowledgeable about the particular dishes being served and the wine pairings are unique. The sommelier is extremely friendly and has interesting tidbits of information for each wine which add great to dimension to the service.

We have dined at Lucques many, many times. The food is predictably, reliably delicious and inventive. The atmosphere, indoors and on the patio, is conducive to conversation, unlike so many restaurants in LA. If there's one thing I might quibble about on this most recent visit it was the service. Not the attentiveness but the level of familiarity with the food, wine and the high end dining experience, in general. I have been spoiled during my past visits by the wait staff who have been very familiar with each of the menu offerings and very willing to make helpful recommendations. Not so much on this past visit. The food was delivered politely, but there was none of the back and forth that has, in the past, enhanced our dining experience.

Wonderful service matched with amazing food.

Only downside was the toddler in the adjacent booth, with the father mindlessly jostling his kid to elicit even more noise and squeals and squeaks. Very unthoughtful to others and should not be allowed in one of LAs top food destinations.

This was the second time I have been to this restaurant. The first time was for the Sunday Supper and the second time was in the main dining room. The service and food were impeccable each time. This is a classic style restaurant with an ever changing seasonal menu, served course by course and not the “small plate sharing” nonsense that characterizes so many of the newer “best” restaurants that are plaguing the current American dining scene. I would definitely go back given another opportunity.
