The food was some of the BEST we have ever had. The service was excellent. The temperature of the dining room was cold and the music too loud which are two very easy things to fix.

Had dinner on Saturday with my children & spouses. We had party for 5 and were seated at a round table which made it easy to talk to everyone & we could hear each other across the table . Everyone got something different & we had appetizers which were all very good! Plan on going back in summer to enjoy patio & sunsets!

We went to Lucia’s to celebrate my daughter’s 20th birthday. The food was great. The service was exceptional. It’s a beautiful restaurant with an upbeat, classy vibe. I especially love the bar. It’s a great place all around. Highly recommended.

One of the seafood dishes that we ordered contain scallops. And my guest and I had just finished talking about how delicious the scallops were at another restaurant and how well seared to perfection they were, and how important it is to have a well seared scallops otherwise the texture completely changes.
The scallops were not seared to perfection, for that truly unique delectable taste. The flavors however we’re all there all the way around from the wedge salad to the risotto meatballs and the lobster ravioli was to die for!!

Disappointed! Table was too small for six people. Service was not great. Food was adequate. Lucias is usually outstanding in all aspects. Today was a big disappointment!

New Years dinner with our close friends was wonderful at Lucia’s. The best place in buffalo to go for seafood and they never disappoint! The bang bang shrimp is my favorite and the filet with Gorgonzola sauce is always incredible.

Considering it was New Years Eve, wasn’t sure how crowded it would be and if the menu would be limited . They were fully booked with reservations up to 10:30 and a constant bar crowd, but food, service were excellent with no pressure to speed up our dining. All our favorites were on the menu and excellent service from Amy, as usual.

As always the staff and owner of Lucia’s provide a great dining experience. The food, drink & atmosphere are amazing. This place is more than an amazing view. The staff does the little things that make you feel appreciated and always make you want to come back. The main menu & daily specials never disappoint. From the moment you enter to the moment you leave staff here makes you feel welcome. Bravo, see you again soon.

We usually enjoy our meals at Lucia’s, however we were disappointed with the lobster linguini and lobster ravioli this visit. The pieces of lobster were chewy and unappetizing, and the sauce/broth in the linguini was in was quite tasteless. We always enjoy the bang bang calamari and charcuterie, but our entrees were not up to par this time.

Christmas Eve dinner . Bang Bang shrimp and short rib were outstanding as always . Highly recommend. Wife went off her usual steak options and tried the lobster ravioli . She was blown away . Portion was perfect and tasted so good . Could have been decorated more festive inside , but not a big deal . We have been here quite often and have never walked away disappointed . The staff is amazing and the food is top notch .

Lucia’s never disappoints.

My wife had the Halibut w Brie asparagus risotto and merlot poached pears. Halibuts was excellent as usual, one of the best risotto I ever had, and the merlot poached pears reminded me of a mulled wine.

I had the wagyu strip steak with mashed potatoes and green beans and added the jumbo lump crab. The jumbo lump crab is amazing. I highly recommend this add on.

Cosmopolitan and dirty martini were spot on perfect

We enjoyed our dinner at Lucia’s the other evening. I’ve been there before & the menu hasn’t changed. None of the specials appealed to me so on my occasions there I’ve had the same thing......good but not special. I would like to see a good old pasta dish on the regular menu.
