About Luckee Restaurant
Luckee Restaurant and Bar - the much anticipated "Nouvelle Chinoise" restaurant by culinary superstar and television personality Susur Lee.
Luckee features Chinese cuisine at its most sophisticated, with comforting and recognizable recipes of classic dishes and dim sum for the culinary traditions of Guangzhou, Hunan and Szechuan regions, updated and enhanced by Chef Lee's delectable signature.
The interiors subtly blend accents of imperial red and wall-to-wall panels of dynastic architecture, with a nod to 20th century Chinoiserie.
Luckee Bar, already a favourite of locals and travellers alike, boasts themed as well as classical cocktails, an extensive wine list, and an urban vibe that is one-of-a-kind.

Luckee Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The dim sum tastes like they have been ready for a while, not fresh and selling for much more expensive than other dim sum places. The seafood basket is not worth the price, all frozen seafood selling for over $25... the BBQ beef is the only dish I think it's good, fried vermicelly is too dry... anyways, my husband and I were expecting a lot but got very disappointed.
The food was great, but the service, not so. We were there for our kids' birthday lunch (two families). And by the time we were ready for the birthday cake, which we brought to the restaurant, we were told by one Asian-looking server that there was a $3 charge for each person present, to ensure food safety. He was not friendly and his tone was provoking. He was basically saying: $3 per person, including the two three-year-olds. That's our policy. Do you want to eat here or not? That was very disappointing to say the least. It was not about the money, it was about the attitude, the passive aggressive tone and the disrespect behind the seemingly neutral expressions.
Grateful we made a reservation - the place is packed (both dining room and lounge areas)! The 'pretty' host is strictly window dressing - he was very nice but severely lacking in polish. Our server was sharp as a razor - efficient, knowledgeable, polite and very welcoming - she knew the menu, proper food timing and wine pairings. Bar staff were tardy and ill timed - our server stepped in and corrected things. Stand outs were the Cheung Fun (lobster) and Marble Dungeness Crab Ravioli. Great eve - will be going back.
The food was great. I feel that the service could have been more proactive, instead of reactive. It is not a high volume restaurant, the service should never been felt routine. I felt that the waiter did not get to know us, he is an order taker, not a sales ambassador.
Very interesting twist on dim sum. Fun flavours.
Goji berry should have been put on top of the shaomai after steaming for more colour, and the chicken and shrimp dumpling with truffle should have been steamed separately from the other things on the tasting menu, as the truffle flavour contaminated the other dumplings.
Everything else was perfect and it was quite a welcome difference from normal dim sum.
Excellent dim sum. Best radish cake and cheung fun. Next time will come back to have dim sum cart service in addition to menu items. Not boring run of the mill dim sum .....distinct fresh flavours abound. We usually drown our dim sum in sriraccha sauce but to do this to Luckee's dim sum would be a heinous crime. Not as cheap as other dim sums but very good value considering the complicated excellent flavours. We will definitely return. Also great funky atmosphere, family friendly as well as couple friendly. Excellent service with first questions regarding potential food allergies, dislikes. We are still talking about it!
My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here. Food was great and recommendations provided by our server were spot on. I have a shellfish food allergy and they had plenty of yummy options for me. It would had been nice to know which ordered dish was being delivered to our table when ready. We found that the price for alcohol (Wine) to be on the pricey side.
My two girlfriends and I had dinner at Luckee and had the worst experience. The food was gross with absolutely no flavor and cold. This was during winterlicious neither of us liked any of the dishes we ordered. The service is terrible too. We ended up going to another place for dinner and enjoyed it very much. Save your money and time and avoid going there.
The food was quite blend. Portions were rather cheap on the proteins. Not once did the wait staff ask us how the food was, as if they knew it wasn't very good. EXTREMELY overpriced. There are a lot of dissapointing restaurants in Toronto, this one ranks top amongst them!
The service was up to the level we've come to expect of a Susur Lee eatery: friendly, not familiar, attentive, knowledgeable. Magnificent room! Winterlicious menu was uninspired: the hot-sour soup was strictly Chinese diner standard-issue, the Luckee Soba Salad insipid, the General Tso beef sugary. Will return for Dim Sum.
Came for winterlicious - love it !! Waiter offered to split something 3-way (for a app we shared). If the winterlicious food portion is bigger, will be better. A little confusion with kitchen / server - food came to wrong person and another plate came twice. Otherwise, unique take on dim sum and Cantonese food!
I went to luckee to take advantage of the winterlicious menu. While the offerings seemed great in paper, the reality was lacking. The hot and sour soup tasted great but there was very little of it. The crispy shrimp was good but underwhelming as only four pieces and served on plain rice with steamed broccoli. The next star of the meal was the dessert which was where my date and I finally felt we got value as it tasted delicious, was presented well and the portion size made sense. Overall, parts of the meal were great but I would rather have spent the money on another restaurant that made use of Winterlicious to connect with other clientele
We had the Winterlicious menu and cocktails. Some dishes were pretty good (the ribs), but most were a bit bland (the chicken salad was for sure not "mouthwatering," it was watery and tasted like the chicken was boiled and underseasoned), and the asian coq au vin had barely any chicken at all, but the sticky rice was interesting. I don't think I'd go back, I'm sorry to say.
