Lucia of Greenlake Ratings and Reviews
Unfortunately the server left a lot to be desired. I was sitting there over 10 minutes in a restaurant that was virtually empty before anyone asked me if I wanted something to drink. We had to signal the waiter to get help. Disappointing, especially when people are so pressed for time.
This restaurant is really pretty and has a nice feel to it. I’ve dined here for HH, dinner, and brunch and have never been disappointed. The food is good and the service amazing. The staff are all very warm, professional, and go out of their way to make your experience perfect.
Try the Crab Cake Benedict; you could easily share it, it is so rich (delicious)!
I highly recommend you try this place for brunch, HH, and dinner!
Dinner was really tasty... but we felt constantly rushed to order and have our plates taken while others were still eating (3 separate employees tried to take plates while people were still eating) while also being ignored with no water refills until we had received our checks and were sitting to chat and a last minute addition of bread for the table being cold and served after our meals were complete. Overall experience was just ok. Probably wouldn't return with all the other options Seattle has to offer.
Beautiful ambiance and decor. Great service. Food was decent (delicious Foccacia bread) Great location and vibe.
The only downside was that the waitress offered to comp. our parking but the ticket they gave us was invalid. The parking attendant told us that this restaurant does not have any parking validations with their system. That was a sucky way to end our anniversary dinner.
Server was incredibly unenthusiastic, underwhelming service!
We were first table seated outside . 5 minutes later table 2 & 3 were sat. We were the last to get beverages and food.
The restaurant claimed we didn't show for our open table reservation - which we did.
Nice brunch spot located in a great neighborhood, and there was NO wait! The brunch menu included a nice variety of dishes and bottomless mimosas. The servers were courteous and extremely attentive, especially with with mimosa refills. I will definitely be back for more brunching!
We all had the Grapefruit Martini and were very disappointed. It was not very strong, which martinis usually are, and not very cold--no garnish; very uninspiring. Service was very lacking and did not get orders right, slow to take drink orders. Would not go back or recommend.
the food is pretty good. Had a pina colada, awesome. But it was extremely noisy in the restaurant. I booked thru open table and asked for a quiet table but when we got there it was trivia night with an mC But even if he hadn't been there it was very, very noisy.
I was disappointed wi the eggplant parmesan, I grew up making this and our eggplant was crispy. This was more like a souffle , but it was served in an adorable cast iron skillet
The Chicken Parmesan was the best I have ever had - different from other restaurants; it was very unique and flavorful. I would go back there just to order it again. The gnocchi was average. I've been there before and their pasta dishes are wonderful. However, I was surprised that they charged for bread - who does that anymore?
Stick to pizza at this restaurant. We tried something new and let's just say it was a mistake. The marinara sauce tastes like it comes from a jar ( and not the good kind). The eggplant was thickly sliced and spongey. We ended our evening with a stop at our local pizza joint .
Love the ambiance but the cost for their Valentine's dinner vs teh quality of the food was not even close. I've loved going here for happy hour but paying $200 for 2 people and one of the cheapest bottles of wine was VERY disappointing.
Go here for happy hour, but never for Valentines day...
Great atmosphere and the service was excellent. The staff is very friendly.
The spaghetti dish was bland. Definitely could have used more garlic, oregano and basil. No meat in the sauce. I'll request the meat sauce next time; if its available. Overall, its a great local spot and the price is right!
My boyfriend and I reserved a table to celebrate 4 years together. The hostess, who was also our waitress, didn't seem too concerned we made reservations. Wasn't an issue as the were pretty slow. The service was incredible, the atmosphere was perfect for a romantic dinner and the food was so amazingly delicious! My only complaint would be the wine selection was small. A++
Our family dined at Lucia before going to a play at a nearby Greenwood theater. First the positive: My son and I both ordered the beef shank and potato gnocchi entree, which was delicious. Next the negative: My wife and other son ordered pasta dishes, which were both very substandard, particularly for an Italian restaurant. My wife's order, puttanesca with angel hair pasta, was very bland and came served on spaghetti instead. She sent it back, and they failed to replace the meatballs she had ordered. My son ordered the truffle spaghetti and meatballs, and was disappointed with the flavor. My daughter ordered pizza, which she said was OK. The appetizers we ordered, calamari fritti and caprese, were also OK, but small portioned.
I walked away from Lucia thinking it was a casual place for drinks and light food rather than a sit-down meal.
