    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

    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

    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

    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)

    Limited but well selected dishes. Very nice interior to spend time over glasses of wine.

  • Joel C.

    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.

    Most incredible Short Ribs I have Ever Had!

  • LA Weekly

    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

    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

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

    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

    Haven't eaten here and probably won't looking at the menu. Good place to grab a drink while walking to/from ink. Enjoy.

    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.

    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.

    Epicurious · August 23, 2010

    The much-lauded Sunday Suppers ($45 per head) are still the best bargain here.
