    The staff was very accommodating as we got there early. The oysters were phenomenal. I asked for main course recommendations and the waiter did not disappoint. Also, the bread pudding is to die for.

    Food was quite expensive for what you get. The oysters were good, but quantity is f the dishes has decreased from past five years. Cannot blame this on the pandemic. Very loud and I would not call it energetic! This use to be our go to place, not feeling like it anymore

    What a fabulous experience! Our amazing servers David and Julian were the absolute best. We had the Flammenkuchen appetizer and it was delicious. The Pork Schnitzel and Pan Seared Duck Breast were great. We had the following drinks all of which were delicious Conundrum Risqué Business and the French 75. We ended the evening with Affogatos which were an absolutely amazing choice.

    We've been eating here for the last several days, as we're staying in the hotel next to Luke. EVERY meal has been OUTSTANDING, in terms of food, service, and ambiance. If you are in New Orleans and you don't visit Luke, in my opinion as a "foodie", your trip is incomplete.

    Brussel sprouts arrived before Sazerac, which took too long (20+ minutes after order). Waitress said bar was busy because of Christmas Parade, i.e. people walking in off the street and ordering drinks.

    The only thing I have to say as a slight is that I wish our service was better. We had a dual server situation and it seemed as soon as the fellow learned we didn’t want to order an appetizer, his whole demeanor changed and we didn’t get regular check backs. After we paid, we had to wait for about 20 minutes to get our change. Other than that; the food was tremendous!! We enjoyed our dinner at Luke.

    Great food. The plate of rabbit and chicken pate with pickled vegetables was so delicious we wiped the plate clean with the soft grilled bread. Boneless fried chicken over red beans and rice with pork shoulder.. what more needs to be said.

    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.

    Overall really good experience, the only thing is there was no music in the main dining room so it lacked energy/ambiance. The server asked about it and found out it was because their speakers were broken. Not the servers fault of course, we just wish there had been a little bit more of a vibe that background music would have provided.
