Love this place and the wine bar. Food is always good & the wine/beer choices are unique. Cozy place to come for dinner or just a wine.

I absolutely love this place. You can count on delicious food with a yummy twist. It's a great spot to meet friends and have a conversation! I love places that you can break bread and have a conversation! Actually hear each other. Highly recommend this spot for dining in or on the sidewalk where you can people watch. B

the food here is good. nothing to write home about but very consistent. i really like the frittatas at brunch. the cafe can be very convenient as well. i think the coffee is subpar and the service can be really inattentive at times.

The food at Lucia's is not to miss. The service could use some improvements. Being a person who has worked in fine dining for many years, I might have high expectations, but why shouldn't I? I spent my time bending over backwards with a big smile on my face - why don't I get to enjoy that every once in... More

Trendy and expensive tries to meet casual (but not casual) in the guise of a coffee shop, wine bar, bakery, etc... It sometimes succeeds, all depends on the staff, the clientele, and often the time of day / vibe of the day... The food is mostly "okay" however a bit expensive and somewhat limited in its choices. The staff can... More

This restaurant has been serving James Beacd worthy ffod for over 25 years. The menu is small and selective, the atmosphere is intimate and conducive to great conversation and the wine list is selective, affordable and interesting. Even when the menu seems a little remote, every dish is wonderful. This is a place not to be missed.

The atmosphere was pleasant and the service great. Our server Joy did a great job of making sure we had everything we needed without being an annoyance. We... More
