    Perfect! Every time I go, it gets better and better. We love the happy hour with 1/2 priced cocktails and discounts on raw and fried oysters. The raw were fresh and delicious and the French 75 was tasty and strong.

    We have eaten at Luke before and were impressed with the service and the food. This time however, the service was lackluster and indifferent - the food (Thanksgiving Pre-Fixe) was not good. Our prime rib was overcooked, difficult to cut (even with a steak knife - which we had to ask for after we were served), the mashed potatoes were lumpy, and the entire plate was barely lukewarm. It looked as though everything was cooked hours before and then kept somewhat heated under a lamp. Really overall the worst Thanksgiving plate we've ever had. We didn't even finish the plate. We would not eat here again.

    Food was fantastic on Thanksgiving! Turducken, oyster dressing, sweetpotatoes! Wine is way too expensive per glass. The Service was « selfish ». Got caught in shift change and our server unwisely tried to rush us. Not thoughtful.

    What a delicious breakfast! I had the Southern Breakfast which has sausage, bacon, 2 eggs (your way), grits, and a biscuit. All were very good. I usually do not like grits, but these were smooth and buttery!! The service was top notch and the ambiance was lovely. Highly recommend!

    We make a point to eat at Luke each time we visit New Orleans. This time we left less than impressed. The service was fairly abysmal. We had to let the hostess know twice that we had a reservation and were there. After being seated, we ordered drinks and the flammenkuchen to share as an appetizer. The Belle of the Bayou margarita was very good, but my husband’s original margarita was not. The appetizer was very rich and one note and I don’t think we would get it again. It needed something to cut it like a fig jam, spiced honey, or balsamic glaze. I ordered the mussels and my husband got the schnitzel as always. The kitchen forgot to add the mushroom sauce to his schnitzel and he found it dry. Our waiter did not return until he was halfway through with the meal, and he got a side of the sauce. My mussels were very good though. We ordered more drinks, which did not arrive until after we were done eating and ready to leave. The waiter never asked if we wanted dessert. Service was surprisingly bad.

    We found Luke via OpenTable and were able to grab a last minute reservation. Greatly enjoyed our experience. - hostess was nice, nothing outstanding - service was good, our lead server was meh, but the backup guy (not sure if he was training or they do teams?) was great! Friendly and rather funny. Our drinks were delivered promptly and water was consistently filled. - awesome drink menu. We samples 3 of the specialty drinks - the blueberry margarita (don’t recall the name) was my favorite. - food was tasty. The grilled bread was delicious. My husband enjoyed oysters and I had shrimp as a starter. Our mains were the schnitzel and oysters, with Brussels sprouts on the side. The Brussels sprouts were excellent, and the other dishes were good. The schnitzel was a bit dry, but they accommodated my husbands request for extra mushroom sauce rapidly. The fries were also perfect, served with my mussels. We did not try dessert, but the bread pudding looked good at our neighbors table. Ambiance was nice - this is a place you could enjoy with your kids, which is pretty cool.

    Food was amazing, the server was horrible. I do expect things to take a little longer and the wait to be a bit more but our waiter NEVER checked on us once we ordered. Then he avoided eye contact while he chatted at the bar with another waitress and left us with empty glasses for the entire meal that a runner delivered to our table. The manager made rounds and grab us drinks and our check otherwise we would probably still be there waiting.

    Went back to Luke’s Friday evening and unfortunately ended up with same server (Julienne??). He’s like talking to the wall, but at least a wall isn’t so abrupt and obnoxious. He is absolutely rude. No people skills whatsoever! Will not go back for that reason. Food was good but not good enough to be treated the way we were treated. In case the name isn’t correct the dude with the man bun is the one I’m referring to

    We've visited Luke before and always had good service, however last night seemed off. The server seemed to forget about us throughout the evening , check-ins were infrequent so when we received a dessert menu or asked for the check, it took forever. She had someone shadowing her and said that person would also be taking care of us,but we didn't see them much either. This is atypical of the service we usually receive.

    We have eaten he many times. We have always waiting long times for our food, but is usually good so it is fine. This time they put us in a back room. My partner had to straddle a gap on a bench to sit. The food was not good. We noticed that the tables around us felt similarly. This was always a stop when we come to NO. No longer.

    We came across Luke’s by fluke. We had an excellent meal. I don’t eat seafood so dining in NOLA has been an adventure. The pork schnitzel was amazing but they give you TWO pieces - which was ginormous! I couldn’t finish it that is for sure. The Brussel sprouts were amazing. Even the Riesling was delicious. I can’t wait to see if we can find it back home. The only thing I would suggest is get rid of the fries and put some nice veggies with it.

    Nous avons été extrêmement déçus par Luke. Accueil glacial dans tous les sens du terme. On nous amène dans une salle où il fait 12°C où tous les clients étaient en manteaux, une première pour nous. Après avoir demandé d'augmenter la température, on nous dit qu'apparemment la manager ne veut pas... pour pas s'éterniser sans doute... Passons au repas, 78 balles pour un "plateau" avec 12 huîtres qui n'ont pas été respectées, sans goût.. en même temps elle étaient glacées et déjà coupées du muscle.., quelques crevettes, une mousse de truite trop salée et pas goûteuse, on cherche encore le tartare de thon tant la quantité était dérisoire, des crackers à n'en plus finir (?)... Légume rôtis servis froids (pas tièdes). Tarte au chocolat inexistante, glace incipide... Service convenable mais pas très attentionné : il manquait une assiette, on demande des explications sur les mignonnettes qui accompagnent les huîtres mais on n'a pas eu de réponse à notre question... Bref on ne recommandera pas, voire on déconseillera...

    We’ve eaten at Luke’s several times per-pandemic and we were excited to going there again but unfortunately much has changed. The food was sub-par, items in the menu are the same but quality poor, service was slow and disconnected. We received our appetizer late and got our entree a few minutes later. Very disappointed. Will not consider this restaurant again.
