Second time visiting this restaurant/cafe. I am beyond impressed with the flavors and presentation of our meals. The potatoes are exquisite with or without cheese. Sweet or savory you will delight in your meal here. Staff assisting us today -Clementine. She was amazing throughout the entire meal. Kudos and we will be back soon.
Lucile's has been a favorite for my wife and I for nearly a decade. This review is not about the food. Today is my wife's birthday and she wanted to go to Lucile's, her favorite restaurant, for breakfast. Unfortunately she woke up feeling under the weather. Even so, I endeavored to get her Lucile's anyways. I decided to make an order for pickup. I started by calling around 10am. I was greeted with the answering system which explicitly tells me not to try and leave a message for a pickup order. Okay, I figured I would just keep trying. 30 unsuccessful minutes later I decided I would just leave and show up at the restaurant to make the order. I arrived at 10:45 and stood in line to make the order. I was told to wait outside with everyone else for my food. Right now it is 11:43 and I'm still sitting out here in the cold. I haven't heard anything about the order. I really like Lucile's, but I'm going on 2 hours now trying to get food. Please, please implement online ordering or at least answer the phone. Update: I finally got the order after waiting outside for an hour and going inside to ask about it. It was just sitting on a table. How long was it there?
Busy place, but lots of seating both inside and out. The food was very good. Great Creole Bloody Mary to start, the special was a Crab and Shrimp Benedict with asparagus. They actually know how to cook Grits, unusual out of the south, everything was great. Huge biscuits and home made jam. Our server was on point and despite the business of the restaurant she was great. Only negative they close at 2 pm.
Lucille's was amazing, as usual. So many great flavors, I'm always happy & satisfied when I leave. This time, I did the salmon filet, with red beans & rice. Salmon was cooked perfectly, little bit of sear, but perfectly juicy inside. And the service was also excellent, as always. Whether you have breakfast or lunch, you won't be disappointed!
This place is definitely crazy busy for a reason. If you show up and they tell you that it’s an hour and a half wait, do it. They have fantastic drinks and their food is absolutely amazing. Their portions are so large you will have leftovers for later which is even better. This place you can dress casual or dress up whichever you want but keep in mind the spaces are tight so if you’re wanting lots of space you might want to order it to go but make sure not to forget your cocktails when you do that.
