The food was very delicious. Lots of choices. The service was excellent. I especially liked the never ending mimosas. A bit pricey though. I recommend this brunch to anyone looking for a high end elegant dinning experience.

Lovely restaurant, friendly staff. Food is good but was disappointed that they did not have the scallops. We were there at the start of the dinner period so it seems odd that they were out of them already. Also, the kitchen was backed up and it took a long time to get our food. Was getting worried as we had tickets for the 8PM play. Server was very attentive and kept checking on us which was great. Chocolate cake was delicious.

Eating at Lucille’s made the evening more special. We did the pre-dinner theater option which I highly recommend. The tomato basil soup was delicious and my steak was made exactly as ordered. The service was top notch attentive but not overly attentive! I will definitely go and also try their brunch!

The one thing that we were disappointed with was that most of the food was not hot at all, unless it was made exactly at the time taken. (Is omelet or pasta). Also, I am allergic to fish so I obviously don’t eat any of that, which seems like it would drive up the cost of brunch. It would be nice to have a lower price for people like me and somehow monitor that station so that only those paying the full price would have access to the seafood. We also brought two elderly guests who didn’t drink any champagne-seems like they should have a lower cost too.

Very disapointed when the French Onion soup was removed from the menu. It is our "go-to every time we dine there. Need a better variety of lunch items.

I only get a chance to get to Lucille's once or twice a year but in all the years I have been attending it still is tops in my book. The best place for brunch around!

Our family has dined here before, both on regular Sundays and on holidays and I have to say that this past Sunday was our best experience yet. The selection was excellent. I especially loved the variety of salads as well as the waffle and doughnut station. It's so nice to be able to go there and indulge if you want to, or stick to healthy options, of which there are plenty. Our server Zach was so friendly and attentive. It was the loveliest brunch we could have had in celebration of my parents' 35th wedding anniversary. We will be back soon!

Great place to eat before the show at Drury Lane. Service accommodates the schedule very well and the food is good. We had the Filet Minot and it was excellent.

Been coming to the brunch for years... price going up and value going down. They’ve outsourced to a different company/restaurant. It’s still nice but juice not fresh, display/decor is different, food was cold.

More food choices than anyone can sample... but that was our plan. BIT of a long walk to food setup , coffee kept getting cold? Quiet day, modest amounts of many varieties of food so everything was kept fresh. Loved the Bloody Mary bar! Oyster Rockefeller delicious! Dessert quite ordinary. But SO full anyway!

Food was great and our waitress was great also but the service was slow, we had tickets for the cabaret and what we thought with an hour and a half lead time would be a relaxing meal turned out to be a rush because of how long it took to prepare & deliver our dinners. We made the show just before it started.

The PrixFix menu ( for before show) is less expensive & good but the regular menu is overpriced with everything ala carte. No potatoes or vegetables included. I have had the filet mignon but at the price of a salad, potatoes or vegetables added it is ridiculous. That is why it is seldom filled unless you know about the other menu

It was nice to get dinner at the same place as the show. However, the service was horrible ! Too bad because the food tasted very good.

The service and atmosphere was amazing and very comfortable, however, the menu could be expanded upon. I took my 14 year old daughter for the theater experience and added dinner at Lucille’s. Although it was a wonderful evening overall, additional options for dinner could be considered. If the menu was reviewed and improved, I believe your dining room would be utilized at Fuller capacity.

We all ordered from the pre-theater menu (3 turkeys and a steak) and all of us were satisfied and ate our fill. The $29 price is quite reasonable, and even with cocktails was a bargain. Plus, the convenience of merely walking across the lobby to the theater is really nice. The next time we go to Drury lane, we most certainly will dine at Lucille's again.

The only disappointment was that Drury Lane apparently closed the bar that was under the same roof. We had planned on having a cocktail there after the theater but that wasn't possible.

We went to the Lucille brunch buffet prior to seeing a play at Drury Lane. Our table was in a great location, the room is very elegant and our server was outstanding. The food, however, was hit or miss this time (not our first time here). There was herb stuffing that was wet and slimy, mashed potatoes that were hard and cold, and cheese that seemed to have been out there too long. On the flip side, the chocolate cake was divine, the Tex Mex omelet was delicious and the pico de gallo perfection. Next time I will be much more selective about what I try.

This was a great brunch experience—great food, attentive service and a “nice” but not stuffy atmosphere. More choices than we could possibly imagine . We were checking it out for our 50th anniversary brunch and we will absolutely have it there!
