Kinda of just stumbled in to this place and absolutely loved it. Great food (we had fish) and creative drinks and local beer. Helped that is was a beautiful day and we sat outside. The server could not have been any nicer.

This was our first time here so I can't compare to the old days and am not hampered by nostalgic views of the old days. Loved the atmosphere and small dish choices. The wine list offered many good reasonably priced offerings. Enjoyed the artisan cheese tray and fresh veggie plates. The banana cake was delicious. Our wait staff was friendly... More

The trouble is I've known Lucia's for a long time so this is a compare and contrast review. For a decade I was there at least weekly and knew many of the staff. That was the golden era. When Lucia sold it to a "local Uptown developer" changes were immediate. That was three years ago or so, and it's declining... More

Blood orange mimosa, lamb sausage & eggs, and hashbrowns with duck fat. All delicious and well served. A place you will want to return to.

Lucia's once led the way to high quality food in Minneapolis, but no longer. Inedible is how my tolerant party described range of dishes. Quality of ingredients is dreadful and preparations are pedestrian. This was our last visit after decades of coming to Lucia's.

The food was not impressive. The soup I had looked and tasted like it was from a can and they added cabbage to it. I also had the hash browns that were so soaked in grease that it ruined the taste and was not crunchy at all. The menu sounds amazing, but it is not what you think. My Husband... More

We almost always try to eat at Lucia's when visiting Minneapolis. Not sure if the have a new chef or just a bad night. My wife's fried chicken was under cooked and nothing we couldn't have done better at home. My fried pork was salt, pepper and dropped in a fry pan as well, Absolutely no creativity. Is this the...

Oh my! We happened to go here during Restaurant Week so they had a special menu. Our waiter was friendly and approachable. He was able to answer our questions about the menu items. Our food came in good time and was served hot. Everything tasted wonderful! The menu is limited and changes seasonally. Gorgeous presentation. My suggestion: make a reservation,... More

this was my first visit to the restaurant. A limited menu but this is down to the freshness of the items available. Good beer and wine choice to accompany an excellently prepared meal. Staff were very curteous , impeccable service and reasonably priced. I will be visiting again when in Minneapolis
