Hi, has anyone tried Lucy's Latin Kitchen? How is it?

    I went for Restaurant Week during the summer months and had a wonderful meal. I can't remember specifically what I had (it's not that the dishes are that creative but very well prepared and of high quality). The service was great, the wine list is heavily Spanish (which I love) and I personally enjoyed the ambiance. I also have to say I was happily surprised at the quality of the Tempranillo they had as the "restaurant week" wine. I can't comment on the value of the restaurant with normal prices but as long as it's not too outrageous I would definitely go back.

      I went for dinner once and the food was just OK and the service pretty bad.

      I also had my office holiday party here last year and had a really bad experience with the space allotted to us, number of servers, food, etc.

      I would go elsewhere.

        I've eaten there once and drank there several times.

        The food was good, a little expensive, and the service was sort of slow.

        The drinks are okay. Try the Mojito sampler; it's a good deal.
