Came here for their Sunday supper special - $45 prefixed menu. It was well worth the price. The chicken entree I ordered was very juicy and flavorful and the portion was surprisingly sufficient for my huge appetite. The biggest surprise of the meal was the pea salad. Who would've thought a plate of plain looking green peas could be so tasty! Great beer selection as well.

We called a chef friend in Chicago and asked where we should eat in LA. "No question, Lucques" was his answer. Been going there for ten years since. Never lets us down. In this city of trends, it's always comfortably sophisticated and somewhat classic. The innovation is on the plate.

I came here with a group of friends for Sunday supper and it was great experience. We had some greens to start off with, and then you get to choose either a chicken dish or a fish dish, all of which were excellent. I did order an alcoholic drink: Kentucky Cola, which was really good. It went down smooth and was very tasty. I'd highly recommend the Kentucky Cola. For dessert I had a lemon ricotta crostata was just the right amount of sweetness.

I know there's just a generic review system, but that doesn't mean I compare all places to each other. You don't compare a 5 star fast food place to a 3 star haute couture Bauhaus eatery specializing in urban locovore post-modern consumption. So when a restaurant gets an average rating, it means it's an average place that meets my expectations for that kind of place. I'm not surprised. The food is as expected. The service average. All based on the kind of place you're at. Remember, compare apples to apples. Just because it's better than your last trip to the local diner, or is better than what you cook at home, doesn't mean it gets max points. That said, Lucques was ok. It was fine. My boy's brother's Manhattan had too much ice, and when we asked for one with less ice (because this one tasted mostly like water by the time I got it), they went back, scooped the ice out and put it in a new glass. It was still watery, but at least the damage didn't get any worse. The salads were impressively composed, anything made of bread that was toasted was superb, and the vegetarian ricotta dumplings are monotonous. Bite one is great, and all the ones after it are boring. The waitress, albeit a bit rude and short with us all evening, was right, however: the shortribs are really the house specialty, and definitely nice. Soft, flavorful, complex and well done. But not unexpected for the price and location.

A gorgeous dining room, and great service come together in a perfect package with the fantastic seasonal menu from Suzanne Goins. While they are rightly famous for their short ribs, probably the best meals I've had here have been the prix fixe Sunday Supper. There was one with a main dish of duck confit over fava beans, which I still long for.
