    Luke was a great place for brunch! I was with a friend and her 2 year old, and the maitre’d was very helpful in seating us at a table that worked for us. The food was delicious - between us we had the croqué monsieur, the vegetarian omelette, and the roasted brussel sprouts. The waiters did their best to make sure we were taken care of, and the restaurant was busy! I’d come back here for lunch or dinner.

    It has been a while since we were at Luke and previous dining experiences were better than this one. Food was just okay and it was way to noisy. No longer my scene. There are restaurants in Nola that probably offer better value.

    We had not been to Luke in a long while. We were there for Father’s Day (2022). When the entrees came out my husband was missing his. Our waiter came by and said he was sorry and told us it would be out soon. It took them a long time to bring it out. By this time we were all finished with our meal. Then we ordered dessert. It took them 30 minutes to bring it out. Again our waiter apologized. He said he had let the kitchen and his manager know about the delay. Apparently the kitchen was backed up. That was no excuse for our waiter not to refill our drinks. He never came by to refill our water glasses or beverages. We also had coffee and my husband asked for a second cup which he never got. The service was atrocious. The one person we were celebrating didn’t get treated right. How very sad, that Luke is no longer what it use to be. I don’t think we will come back.

    Was disappointed to learn that there was a different breakfast and brunch menu. We also were confused because you don’t have a specific waiter but that wasn’t explained when we were seated and it was sometimes difficult to get table service. The food was ok, not sure I would visit again.

    My sister and I went to Luke, as she had just helped me following spinal surgery—with her being from out of town, I wanted to take her to Luke, being one of my favorite restaurants. She was so happy, she was beaming—and Richie Rich was wonderful.

    I got the Trout almandine, grilled because my waiter told me the fried trout was dry. This was dry as well and the cauliflower was cool. Big disappointment. I wish I had gone around the corner to the Chop House.

    Date night for my mother-in-law. She hasn’t been on a dinner date since her husband passed away 4 years ago. She is from Missouri and was here visiting us. It made for a great experience that she thoroughly enjoyed. I server was attentive and knowledgeable about the entire menu. Food was amazing and perfectly prepared. Never been disappointed by the staff. Great job.

    Both the food and service at Luke’s were outstanding. My husband and I shared the fritters, he had the etouffee and I had the swordfish. They were all delicious. They also had a nice selection of wines by the glass. Our waitress, Gabi, was very personable and made excellent recommendations. We will return!
