A number of dining rooms and table sizes with large windows and view of a park. Had a large party of 8 and were sat at the same time as other groups. The food was amazing- try the hanger steak, but came out very slowly. Drinks were slow to come out and came out separately vs. together.

Waiting for Tenebrum mass at the basilica we decided to have dinner @ Lurcat. Best decision ever :) The service was perfect, the food exquisite. It's not common to have a wonderfully cooked Foie Gras. Thank you!

Great deal on a nice three course tasting menu. Nice options, great pricing. Half price bottles of wine, too (very extensive wine list). Beautiful view of Loring Park, nice ambiance. An amazing Sunday night destination!

Very nice restaurant experience Pros - very diverse menu, lots of options, many standard items and many themed dishes as the chef rotates the theme of the dishes every few months - great atmosphere, the bar has plenty of seating and the restaurant is well kept - chef is very accommodating; two of the members of our party were vegan...

They have a nice wine list to pick from (by the glass or bottle). The roasted cauliflower (side dish) I think was the favorite dish I had. The Indian inspired curry and coconut soup was also really good. The scallops I had as a main dish were seasoned and well prepared. Service was also really good. A few stray looks... More

We came for Sunday "date night" with a group of 5. Beautiful setting and s wonderful space. Arrived at 6:30, got seated and ordered wine and cocktails. Enjoyed the conversation but after 40 minutes without seeing any waitstaff we started wondering what was going on (especially since it wasn't so crowded and there seemed like plenty of staff around). After... More

New executive chef and new items on the menu. Indian options are a great addition. The curry leaf cocoanut soup with crab - over-the-top scrumptious. Sunday night date night is a great buy and makes my husband and I frequent diners. Good bar martinis. Lurcat can easily accommodate larger parties-a rarity in fine dining. Desserts are well-crafted and I'm not... More

I am a local and come to Cafe Lurcat on a regular basis - excellent food, lovely ambience, and conveniently located if you're in downtown or uptown (parking can be tricky though if you go on a weekend night - just shell out for valet). I choose to go on Sunday nights because they have an excellent 'date night' promotion... More

Have eaten at the sister restaurant in Naples,FL and encouraged associates to try Lurcat on a Tuesday night in March. No one was disappointed. Simple food well prepared. Crisp salad. Melt in your mouth Miso sea bass. I promised the group that the donuts were special. So good you can skip the mini donuts at the Fair. One person had... More

Our experience with the Café Lurcat was excellent from beginning to end. We made reservations and were seated immediately upon our arrival at a lovely table located at the edge of the room. We had asked to be seated in a quiet location and this was definitely honored as our table was perfectly positioned to allow us to enjoy our... More
