What a surprise!. I saw the review in the Gusto, which piqued my interest. HAve bee trying to get a reservation for months. Finally got in Friday night and I was not disappointed. Our server was courteous and efficient. Every dish, from appetizer to desserts were fabulous. The only drawback was that it was extremely loud, which made it difficult to discuss among our party just how wonderful our dining experience was. We were all amazed at the portion sizes, which were huge. Great value for our money. Braised short rib, lobster & shrimp risotto, meatball, stuffed peppers, bang-bang shrimp all were delicious. Definitely will come bacj again, if we can get in!

Our second time at Lucia's and just as excellent as the first time. We had a reservation for 7:15 on a Thursday night and the couple we were going with were running late and couldn't make it untill 8, so I called Lucia's at 6:15 and they were more than happy to accommodate us for an 8 reserv. The restaurant was packed!!! I thought we would be squeezed into a little table in the corner. Thankfully not. But every inch of the place was full. You wouldn't think it though...comfortable and not noisy at all. They have a second bar in another room with high pub tables for walk-ins too. Views if Lake Erie sunset are beautiful from the upper deck....oh another bar there and seating for dinner too. The total package! Casual dress, but not sports casual. Can't say enough about Lucia's!

My husband and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary at Lucia's. It was the best dinner that I have ever eaten in a restaurant. I had the lobster ravioli and I added the extra lobster meat to it. My husband had the braised short ribs with mushrooms. Our waitress was very attentive and we enjoyed everything. The only negative was the noise level which the restaurant can't control. Don't hesitate to eat at Lucia's on the Lake.

The service (Jacob) was outstanding- great personality, well versed in the menu and wines and let us enjoy our night. The food was incredible from the lobster linguine to the amazing pork chop and steak the whole meal was just awesome. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone...it’s one of the best places to eat in the Buffalo area.

Always a wonderful and relaxing meal. Brought friends who haven’t been there before and they enjoyed and were pleased. Service (Jacob) was excellent- attentive and knowledgeable of the menu as well as took concern for my food allergies.

This restaurant, its owner and his team are extraordinary and they come with a beautiful view of Lake Erie. Give them a try for any occasion and I predict you will be a returning diner.

I took my husband here for his birthday and we were thrilled. It’s a really cute place across from the lake with a great view from the rooftop (weather depending). The food and service were absolutely excellent. I had the shrimp and lobster risotto and it was so delicious! I would highly recommend Lucia’s. It’s the perfect place for a date or special occasion!

The food was amazing! Bang bang calamari was spot on as was the pork belly! Main dishes at the table were shrimp and scallops pasta with lobster meat added! Only regret is not having enough room for some fried cookie dough!

Great cocktails, delicious oysters on the half shell and outstanding lobster ravioli. Really fine dinner. We love the vibe at the high top tables in the bar area, although it gets pretty loud as the evening progresses. Servers are top notch. One of our favorite places.

Jared was incredibly attentive without rushing our meal. Each course was paced well and he was equally attentive to wine. Assistant servers were fantastic clearing plates and keeping water full. The restaurant was comfortable with good noise volume allowing easy conversation at our table. The menu had so many tempting options along with the fantastic view, we are guaranteed to be back!

The noise level is always high but the food is always outstanding as is the service. On a beautiful night like we were there, it would have been nice to have table cocktail service on the rooftop patio rather than getting our own drinks at the bar.

My dinner guest from out of town asked if we could dine near the water. I found Lucia's. Not exactly on the water but the views are great from the roof top bar. Our meal was spectacular. My guest enjoyed the Chicken french, my wife had the lobster and shrimp risotto and I had the salmon special. All were excellent. Nice wine list as well. I grew up not too far from Lucia's and live out of town now. We will definitely come back.

My wife and I decided to come here for our wedding anniversary dinner. We made reservations for dinner.

We arrived and were promptly seated. The server was friendly and helpful. We ordered the filet mignon. My wife also had a cup of French Onion soup to start. The filets were cooked to our specifications. The meal was delicious.

There are other items on the menu we’d like to try the next time we come for dinner.
