Lucia Restaurant & Bar - Bernardus Lodge & Spa
Grilled Prime Beef Filet 8 Oz
with sweet corn, potato purée and chimichurri sauce
with ginger-lime emulsion and brioche toast
Great food! Best hamburgers on the Monterey peninsula. Sat outside. Service was not as good as usual.
Excellent food and ambience!
We have eaten at great restaurants around the world. The food we had at Lucia’s was absolutely excellent not only in presentation but also flavor and the combination of the additional sides. We felt the food was more than worth the price.
Food was wonderful and Kerry our server was attentive and helpful. Very nice evening
Thoughtfully designed and decorated with incredibly tasty food. Each item has a unique spice, glaze or sauce to make it special and memorable. I think I had my favorite grilled salmon ever. Give it a try for a relaxing, delicious and enjoyable lunch or dinner.
Lovely breakfast of fresh fruit yogurt and delicious golden granola. Accompanied by the smoked salmon and bagel.
Service was outstanding and the patio was just lovely. Perfect finish to a lovely 4 night stay.
Very bad service for price paid
Great food well prepared and impeccable service. Beautiful setting and comfortable seating. Plenty of heaters in outside dining area.
Could not recommend this place more. Amazing food, incredible service, wonderful ambience. Hope to come back soon.
First, I do need to say that the place is lovely. The grounds and the restaurant were very nice. The food and service were not bad, just underwhelming. The menu was very limited for Saturday lunch. The service was slow and un-attentive. We were looking for a nice relaxing lunch, but slow is not the same as relaxing. Need something? Forget it – the wait staff was nowhere to be seen. I eventually had to take my check to the bar to pay it. The food was “fine” but not great. Fairly well prepared, but not particularly flavorful or memorable. There were other oddities, like 4 people having to share 1 menu and NO wine list. Yes, I know, Covid requires them to toss paper menus after use, but I would have preferred 4 menus on cheaper paper stock. There was (as we later learned) a scan code to the menu online … but it was very small and hidden in a tiny flowerpot on the table. Perhaps, if we dined out more often during Covid we would have known to look for it … but viewing the menu should be a game of hide and seek.
Excellent food. Yellow tail tuna tar tar was phenomenal. Pork chop with kale and almonds was great as was the beef filet. Excellent experience
Food was very good, setting is very nice. (But the remodel is horrible) Service was incredibly slow, 2 hours 15 minutes for lunch. Note that service at Bernardus had been slow since the day it opened. We still go there though but not very often.
Outstanding food, service, and ambiance. I had the crab cake and short ribs. Absolutely decadent and delicious. The wine was also spectacular. Enjoyed every bite and every moment at this fabulous restaurant.
The food was fabulous!! Crab cake is one of the best we have ever had!! We will be back
Very fine cuisine and service and an emphasis on local fruits, vegetables, and wine. Just what we look for when traveling.
We had a lovely time sitting on the terrace.
Service was friendly and attentive...food was excellent...great selection of wines by the glass and bottle...can't wait to go back!
Great outdoor eating environment. Food and service were up to Bernardus' well-deserved status as one of the premier restaurants in Monterey County and Carmel Valley. We always enjoy our time at Bernardus and the Lucia restaurant is one of the reasons we keep coming back.
Love the ambience, the food is terrific and good to be outdoors.
Relaxing vibe, beautiful setting, nice people and top-notch food!
Would have been nice if the pastry chef could have done a vegan dessert for the bday. I had ordered a vegan dessert and called 2 days before celebration.
Loved every single moment of our delicious dinner!
It was a bit windy and cold. I asked two different staff members to turn on one of the lamp heaters by out table. They both said they would be right on it, but it was never turned on. The server was great. Just a little slow on waiting on us.
We chose Lucia for Easter Brunch as they offered a served Buffet that was spectacular!
This was our third time eating at this restaurant. Previous two times were excellent but this time was somewhat disappointing. The pear and avocado salad was overdressed and the fried chicken sandwich was dry and the french fries were lukewarm.
Great service by the staff and the kitchen including the valet parking guys
We had an excellent meal and the service was superb
Great food with outstanding service
90th birthday and they brought out a lovely dessert!
Food & service was outstanding
You really need to have a way for Open Table to communicate with customers. No phone calling or emailing available
Service was excellent. Food was very good and server worked with us on dietary requirements.
The service at the restaurant was excellent. We had a friendly hostess and our waitress was awesome. I mentioned that it was my daughter‘s birthday and they thoughtfully included a birthday candle with our dessert. The ambience was wonderful as there was a live guitarist and singer. We loved the outdoor tent which had clear sides so it wasn’t restricting our view of the gorgeous resort grounds
We love every minute of lunch in the patio. Feels like you are in a European village or overlooking a winery visit. Food was fabulous...only wish they had all the ingredients ready for Ramos Fizzes...took over 30 minutes to get ours but they were delicious! I recommend this place.
Great restaurant. Close enough to Big Sur to make it worth the drive during covid for a great dinner.
Our meal was great, the oysters were fresh, the beet salad was amazing, great flavors.
The breakfast menu was very extensive, not too expensive (for what you get) and DELICIOUS! A wonderful experience at a wonderful resort.
It was a rainy cold day, and we had to find the warmest seating under the tent. Had to move from the first seats.
It was a bit loud for my hearing level.
The food was excellent and Jason the server was very accommodating.
Great experience. Met our expectations.
