The food is good but for the same price there are other places that give you more. I had the Chilean Sea Bass and the portion size was much smaller than I had expected for the price.

Another lovely meal at Lukas! We were celebrating 🥳 our friends birthday and everyone enjoyed their lunch. Service was attentive and they even brought us a dessert with a candle and sang to our friend. We will return!

Great food. Had the seafood salad and the seafood crepe. Both were equally good. Friend was raving about his short rib.

Solid meat and fish experience at this spot. All of the starter staples are available with the shrimp cocktail and east coast oysters being a great choice. And although the cowboy ribeye isn’t dry aged, it has nice flavor.

Probably, would have felt a little better about coming back if waiter would have not rushed us,,,
as soon as we sat down the waiter asked if we would like a drink and then he said " you must order now we are going to be very busy " really " half of the tables were not even filled the whole time we were there.

The food is delicious and they have made a real effort as far as outside/CVD dining. Only one issue with the rush of the main course - we had not finished our appetizers or ordered a bottle of wine and it suddenly appeared.

Kept asking us to order because they were busy and with Covid they needed to have the turnover. Well, we had an appetizer that was very good then we ordered 2 entrees and 3 sides and it took 1 hour to get our food. My porterhouse which I asked for MR to Rare came medium and dry. The sides were good and my girls salmon was good. Overpriced for what it was.

Wonderful outdoor dining experience. Plenty of room for quests with distancing efforts in place. The ahi was very good as was the branzino. Service was spotty but is to be somewhat expected these days. Skip the oysters.

It was my birthday and I treated myself to lunch at Luka's. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The set up of the outdoor seating due to the pandemic was very nice and there was a lot of seating available. I enjoyed my sweet Thai chili calamari and the lobster ravioli was wonderful! The service was also great -- I was checked on several times and the waiters were very pleasant. Will definitely go there again!

Their outdoor dining is plentiful in seating but the food and service was mediocre at best. It might have been a one-off situation as I had heard otherwise from a friend, but they seemed overwhelmed and the food was not good and overpriced. Server was not friendly at all.

We celebrated our 47th Anniversary at Lukas. We had Tuna Carpaccio and a Lukas Salad for appetizers and a Veal Chop and Shrimp over Pasta with garlic and oil as main dishes. Everything was fine excellent. We will definitely go back.

We’ve been here many times and we’ve always been pleased. Unfortunately, not the case this time and in a big way. Took the suggestion of the waiter and ordered crab capellini, for my son and I. Each dish had 4 tiny pieces of crab, REALLY???. Owner came by at end and he didn’t seem to care. On top of that, credit card surcharge as they give you the bill. I understand that it hasn’t been easy on restaurants but you can let folks know about that in advance. Need to seriously think about going back

In this time of pandemic, we are beginning to venture out. Luka's is nearby, and it has added pleasant outdoor space and the food was a very good change. My lobster ravioli were quite good, with tender lobster, and my husband's angel hair with crab was tasty, although the pasta could have been better drained. The issue was some people without masks who stood by the next table - and therefore us - chatting. I expected it to be brief, but they did not move on. I had to finally ask a server to ask them to move. The management should not not have allowed this.

Everything was great. please note there is a charge for credit card use on the bill and they don't tell you either. I feel it's unreasonable since their prices can be compared to NYC and none of the other restaurants are charging it in the area.

So glad to be able to go back and dine outside! Love the new back addition. Service is getting used to the new format. We were brought the check without being asked if we wanted dessert or coffee so we paid and left. I am sure they will work It out but they need to fine tune the new setup. Looking forward to going back!
