The service was wonderful by all of the staff form the time we arrived in the parking lot to the front door, dinner services was impeccable. Our server, Vera was just lovely. It was my wife's birthday and they made the dinner all that more special for her.

Food was very good but had to get up and get my drink from bar, ask for drink refills throughout meal, had to ask passing waiters to get our waiter for water. Ordered English muffin and got toast. Asked for blue cheese olives and got plain. Waiter didn’t know menu and didn’t write anything down. No butter for pancakes. Bar tenders handling garnishes bare handed after wiping face, scratching head. Plenty of staff but they were not working inefficiently and inexperienced. No reason for this. They weren’t that busy. Training would help.

Everything was great! My steak came back not at what I ordered but they were quick to correct it and very apologetic. Service was great and timely. We sat on the patio and it was lovely. Will be back.

I reserved a table for lunch for my wife's birthday earlier this week. Came expecting great views and hoping for decent food. Found food that beat the great views and very good service. Overall, I think this place presents a good value for any kind of special event and I expect that we will come again, maybe for dinner next time. I imagine the winter sunsets would be something special to see...

About the restaurant
An American Fine-ish Dining establishment inspired by local ingredients and French cuisine, with a dash of artistic liberty and a lot of personality.

Think the type of French cuisine you’d see at a dinner party hosted by your Aunt who summers in Provence, says Paris like “Pear-REE”, but also drinks beer only from a can with a koozie. American Fine-ish Dining is serious about its European flavors and techniques, but is also conscious of the very real need to chill out when 30 yards from the beach. Guests can expect progressive American-by-way-of-France cuisine that feels distinctly like the regional cuisine Texans have traditionally flocked to Galveston for.

The Fancy at Hotel Lucine sits neatly at the intersection of 10th & Seawall Blvd - we're about as close to the water as a hotel can get without high tide lapping at your bedside.
