    Inventive Mediterranean-French, curated creatively. "Dishes like grilled chicken with risotto carbonara and wild mushrooms; and endive with Dungeness crab..." -Travel + Leisure on TripExpert Read more

    Local albacore tuna served over braised leeks and potatoes with Dijon mustard and salsa verde seems like a warm, Californian riff on Niçoise salad, minus the anchovies and olives. Read more
    LA Weekly · November 6, 2015
    Lucques is famous for its three-course Sunday Supper (It’s $45 per person- the set menu is posted online in advance.) A bar menu is available Mon.-Thurs. 9:00pm-10:00pm and Fri.-Sat. 9:30pm-10:30pm. Read more · September 9, 2011

    Suzanne Goin’s resinous herbs and precise splashes of acidity make vegetables dance and bring out the deep, fleshy resonances in braised pork cheeks and her notorious short ribs. Read more

    I order the steak dinner and the short rib here and I must tell you it was delicious! The servers are beyond nice and the atmosphere is very home like. Great place for dates and social gatherings.

    If you have cooked from Goin's "Sunday Suppers at Lucques", you know that behind her simplicity lies not just the expected California farmers market fixation but also patience and extraordinary rigor. Read more

    From the comforting fireplace that greets you upon arrival, to the back patio with its vine-covered walls, everything about the place oozes calm and refinement. Read more

    The luscious Mediterranean food is crafted with unusual ingredients to bring out the best in each dish. Try the braised veal cheeks with faro and chestnuts for a fireside delight.

    A relaxed setting with great food. Must sit in the enclosed patio, where the breeze fills the walls. The Alaskan cod or lamb are great picks. -Julie Kwon, Launch My Line

    Boudin blanc is served here over an almost Alsatian setup of cabbage, butter and dried fruit, with nods to France, Germany and Louisiana all on one plate. Read more

    Order any one of speciality drinks at the bar, take a seat by the fireplace, and get ready for a culinary joyride along the Mediterranean. Let Suzanne do the driving and order the tasting menu.

  • Sarah P.
    It's elegant and the food is comforting and delicious. If you go on Sunday night, they have a Sunday supper/set menu that's really fun to do. (from a friend)

    Here is a restaurant for special occasions and romance, for quiet conversation and a fine bottle of wine — it’s a dying breed, but none the less thrilling for being so. Read more

    Pricey. But service was great. Lobster pasta was good but may go with the steak for 2 next time ( you'll know what I mean if you go). (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Lucques, named for a vivid green variety of French olive, is located in Harold Lloyd's old carriage house. Sunday family dinners are legendary. Prix fixe dinners. Read more

    Goin teases out the flavor from a tomato with the precision of a sushi master, making textural contrasts dance and playing with bursts of acidity and the resinous flavors of fresh herbs. Read more

    The kabocha squash salad, though odd on menu, is one of the best things I've eaten in ages. This place is constant and divine. DIVINE.

    Frank Bruni's "Best Thing I Ever Ate" is the braised short ribs with horseradish cream. Also, Sunday Suppers is the "best bargain."

    Nothing I ordered was standout (porkchop & split ricotta dumplings) both nice but not amazing. Think I ordered wrong, spare ribs were stars
