Took 55 minutes to get our lunch after we ordered and only six tables were occupied. Food was fine and our young server kept apologizing. But no reason it took so long.

The service was great and the place was beautiful, but the price was way too expensive especially since the food doesn’t come with sides.

Lucky’s was great! Our waitress was super attentive and really nice. The brunch filet was really good and I loved the complimentary pastries that came with our coffee. At the end of our meal they brought out a congratulations desert for us. It was super cute and delicious. I will definitely be coming back.

Warm en Environment in French bistro like restaurant. Our family celebrated my son’s 18th birthday. Our waitress got us a birthday dessert and song for him without us asking. Calamari was very fresh tender excellent! Fish taco was good except that it needed a little bit more salt and seasoning. overall outstanding experience

We really enjoyed our dinner at Lucky's, food and service were excellent and plenty to choose from on the menu. Just reality that inflation has impacted just about every segment of the economy and layer in the Malibu location; we will be back but this is far from an inexpensive dining experience.

We stopped by this restaurant for lunch during our road-trip. It’s kid friendly and the meals are very tasty. Waitress even gave us a basket of pastry on the house when we ordered that as part of our meal. Love the lobster roll and fries.

Perfect! I took my boyfriend there for a Saturday brunch for his birthday (and let them know it was his special day). The service was AMAZING! We also had wonderful food and such a nice server (attentive and gave us complimentary dessert and such). Everyone was so nice and really made his day special. I absolutely recommend it and will be going there again VERY SOON!!!

Waited 20 min+for a waitress to take our drink order, took another 20+to get them. Waited 20+minutes for bread and that was after we finally were asked (twice) if we wanted it…that was super yummy…the best of the meal. Waited 20+minutes after that to order an appetizer. Spent 2+hours for a less than stellar meal. In their defensive the manager offered free dessert for the inconvenience and to reach out the next time we make a reservation. Sadly there won’t be a next time for us. Prices are over the top crazy. $90 for prime rib. $75 for lamp chops and $120 for the ribeye we shared. Quality was less than what it should have been for the price and service. Great variety of food selection but again prices are out of line for the quality of food served. Sad.

Lucky’s has a lot of good things going for it, however on this day we thought the food was a little disappointing. We were there for lunch. My wife’s “main course” chopped salad was more like a side salad. She was disappointed. We also expected more out of the smash burger. On the other hand, the fries were great and the steak tacos were amazing. Would definitely order the steak tacos again. The menu has a lot of very tempting items and we’re looking forward to returning but will ask a few more questions when placing our order next time. Overall it’s a great environment and worth a visit.

Celebrated a friend’s birthday at Lucky’s. Great, friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. We had filets, salmon, Romanian steak…all cooked perfectly as ordered. Fave sides are the onion rings, sautéed spinach, and potato gratin. Fun atmosphere too!

Server was poorly trained and not really paying attention. His shirt was 2 sizes to small and was stretched at the buttons - manager must not have been paying attention to details. Had to hand him (server) the receipt at the end of the night as he didn't come back and get it and didn't want to leave a cash tip on the table. My assessment is poor management, then food was great and restaurant was very nice.
Manager was sleeping at the wheel.

This was my first lunch visit and it was great. The lunch menu gives you a lot of choices . With the salads you can have a much lighter meal in the middle of the day. I chose the Philly Steak and it was great . My wife had the steak salad which was over the top good. The noise level is WAY lower than inside at night which makes business conversations much easier.

Lucky's is not only the premier restaurant in Malibu, it is the outstanding restaurant in Los Angeles. The food is spectacular; it is far more than a steakhouse (there are lots of those in Los Angeles). It is offers a varied cuisine that is the standard for all. The steaks match any competitor's but, though other entrees in other restaurants often -- usually -- disappoint, the seafood and the salad options are also excellent. It took a short while for Lucky's to find its footing but now not only is the food wonderful but the service is flawless and management warm and welcoming. The ambience is comfortable. It's a wonderful place to have a wonderful time.

It's still Covid season, so it's hard to tell what Lucky's is like when it's... normal. But on a Friday at lunch, it was ideal -- quiet enough for conversation, sufficiently distanced from other diners who, well... I don't know where they've been, attentively staffed, and, yes, delicious. The courses were nicely varied, the pricing is reasonable, and the wine list has a good number of options.

My only gripe would be that the seared tuna in my salad was crusted in "blackened" spices, and there was no mention of that on the menu. Since I believe that I should bite the food and it should not bite me back, I had to trim the edges. Yet, once that was done, everything was wonderful.
