I had the fish of the day, which was salmon. It was slightly undercooked, but tasty, and the sweet potato accompaniment was quite delicious. My wife enjoyed her salad with chicken, and the desert we shared was excellent. We had one glass of wine between the two of us and cappuccinos to finish. If you're looking for a lunch for... More

It is quite difficult to explain why Lucques is so special, so please bear with me. We have eaten in thousands of restaurants worldwide, but could not think of a single restaurant that reminded us of Lucques. First of all, we went on a Sunday evening, which is Sunday Supper evening, with athree course table d'hôte menu, and your only... More

Honestly I've been here 3-4 times, each time I have something different from the menu, and love it. It's one of the only places in LA at which I will get to dessert having cleaned up both my starter and main dish, be full, but force myself (Happily) to have dessert because I feel like I'd be disrespecting the chef...

We ate in the rear of the restaurant (billed as the deck, but really inside) and it was romantic and quiet. The service was maybe a little too quick but the food was delicious and fresh. I had a vegetarian tureen that was wonderful and my husband enjoyed his fish dish. The only drawback was finding the place at night.... More

Located in the Melrose area, the menu reflects great creativity on the part of the chef. The menu is not extensive but there is something for all tastes.

Year after year Luques delivers. Mellow atmosphere, elegant service, and fresh food beautifully prepared and presented. The ricotta dumplings are a dream come true.

Service was very good and the food was excellent. Not a quiet place but the atmosphere is nice, and dimly lit place for any type occasion. Only criticism is that inside tables are very cramped. Waiters cannot fit between tables to converse, take orders or serve your food and drinks. It would be worthwhile to reserve a booth.

The restaurant has a comfortable atmosphere. Booths are nice and separates the diners. The food however is avearge. Not bad but not up to the hype of having an award winning chef. Okay but there are probably lots of others with similar quality food.

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
