We love Lucia's. This is a place for a special meal. The dinner menu is limited; about 4 or 5 options, so you may wish to check the menu on line before you go. We have always found the food to be prepared perfectly. The foods are fresh and ingredients frequently local. On our recent visit, I had Callister Chicken,... More

It started out with five of us squashed at a table for four (we were not the only group seated like this) on hard wooden chairs. This meant that we spent the evening bobbing and weaving as the servers walked behind to get to another table and reached between us to serve and clear. Really, when you are going to... More

I had a very nice solo dinner here a few weeks ago, sitting outside and watching the world go by. I had a nice wild rice soup with a clear broth - it was a really small cup and did lack a bit of 'depth', an interesting vegetarian entree (which did see m a bit pricey at $20) and they... More

Lucia's Wine Bar is the middle of three different dining opportunities created by the skillful hands of Lucia Watson, the other two being a bakery and a white table cloth restaurant. Each is excellent in its own way. We like the Wine Bar because we can go there in late afternoon without a reservation and have a good meal. They... More

Our Sunday brunch experience on 09/08/2013 was less than mediocre. My omelette, which included ham and mushrooms was tasteless. Also on my plate were a few mediocre potato pieces. No toast was included. The cost of that omelette was about $13. My son in-law had an egg dish that was completely flavorless and it was served at room temperature. The... More

Jenice learned about Lucia's onTtripAdvisor and it sounded like our kind of place. We had visited the Gehry-designed art museum at the university and had to rush to make the lunch deadline at Lucia's. Well, it would have been worth a speeding ticket as it turns out (though we didn't get one). What a great concept. Wonderful food served up... More

This is my go-to place, particularly in the summer. The wait staff works as a team to ensure its patrons need for nothing. The fact they know (and love) the fare enlivens their descriptions of it, and honestly? I've never been disappointed. A few weeks ago, a tenderloin topped with a lovely morelli-embedded dollop of fancy soft cheese, drizzled in... More

Lucia's is located in a very trendy, chic upscale shopping area. Kitchen Window, Papersouce and other cool shops and boutiques are next door. There is an outdoor seating area and a very nice dining room. The lunch menu looked like it is set everyday depending on what is in season. The portions are small. The salads were not very interesting.... More

Last Friday, my wife and I drove to the Twin Cities to have lunch at "Lucia's Restaurant, Wine Bar, Bakery, and Sidewalk Cafe" - on 31st Street in the Uptown area of Minneapolis, just a block south of Lake and Hennepin. Lucia's is the creation of the highly respected owner, gifted chef, local food innovator, and author Lucia Watson. I... More
