Lucas Local Oyster Bar Woodfire Cookery
Excellent restaurant. Food was outstanding, cocktails amazing and terrific service. Highly recommend.
The mussels appetizer was fantastic. The pasta was overcooked mush.
First visit, was an enjoyable meal. Service was lovely. Fish was fresh and good selection. Decent wines by the glass and nice vibe. Crab arancini was a bit disappointing but overall a good meal and decent prices.
Beautiful restaurant. Amazing food! Top notch experience all around.
Love this place! The food is awesome! The staff (David) & owner are so welcoming & friendly! Very cozy decor! Thanks from your fans from Chicago! We’ll be back when we visit the grandkids next time!
Food and service were good to very good. It’s a small restaurant with a limited menu but it should be sufficient for most. A small bar area is also available for those who like to watch tv as they eat.
Menu has some unique items and food is absolutely delicious. Though it is a bit expensive here, it’s a place we enjoy going to once in a while to celebrate or just to splurge. We have been twice thus far and have never been disappointed in our meal or service.
Very good seafood. Best I've had in the area. Looking forward to my next visit.
Great dinner! We love the food and atmosphere
We wanted to introduce another couple who enjoy good food as much as we do to our favorite restaurant and it was a huge success! They LOVED it! The food and service were amazing as always. I enjoyed the tuna poke appetizer and the Arctic char as my entree. Both were 100% spot on. Our friends enjoyed the octopus, duck pate, branzino special and tuna. The thing most important about Lucas Local is that they consistently put out excellent food with excellent service! That is not an easy thing to do. We will be coming back to enjoy their midweek dinner specials. Thank you for another exemplary experience!
We cannot wait to go back! We want to try brunch and Happy Hour!
Truly outstanding dining! Creative flavor combinations and perfect cooking. Every dish that hit the table made each of us stop talking to savor the flavors. Loved it, and will be back again soon.
It was ok. The appetizers were good but main meal was just ok. I had artic char and it really didn't look like Char. Anyway, service was good until we waited a very long time for main course. Not sure what happened. Its expensive and wasn't that impressive.
I notify the restaurant of the special occasion and asked for a romantic table, they accommodated my request and then went above and beyond. Your food is amazing and the Ostrich was Incredible. Thank you Lucas Local Oyster Bar!
Excellent food and service. Oyster selection was impressive. A little bit on the noisy side.
Everything was great. We enjoyed our meal, the service was excellent. The ambiance inviting. Would definitely go back.
I had an amazing experience! The chef is very talented and the service was great. I can’t wait to go back
Wonderful Sunday brunch and happy hour. Great oyster special! Ordered twice! Great service, cozy atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Amazing as always! Everything in the menu is phenomenal including cocktails!
We enjoyed our dinner
It was just OK. I thought for what we ate and drank it was expensive. Actually when the bill came the other couple looked at it and said could this be right? Anyway dinner for 4 and a bottle of wine (that was half price that night ) was $250 and we didn't have anything special. Would I recommend it? I would, but warn them to look at prices before ordering
The quality of the food is excellent and the portions are generous.
This place should be high on your go-to list but only if you like warm, interesting surroundings - friendly service - properly cooked, wonderfully fresh seafood - and one of the very best raw bars around!
We took our good friend out for her birthday dinner. Every detail was perfect, from our reception to the menu, our server was great. The food was simply outstanding. It was expensive but worth it.
Kitchen forgot or gave my wife's meal to someone else. Had to wait 25min for her entree after mine was served. Very awkward and unfortunate that I couldn't enjoy a special date night, these are few and far between. Waiter did comp us the 1 meal and a tired, flat glass of champagne.
Bummed about an experience that missed the mark and unhappy I spent my $ there.
We have eaten at Lucas many times and Love it! The meal is always wonderful! If you like octopus, it is the best! All their seafood is so fresh & cooked perfectly! We highly recommend you give them a try.
Out go to, we are never disappointed!
THE most enjoyable place to go in the Newtown area for locals! Everything that leaves that kitchen and raw bar is perfect. LOVE IT!
Tables are close, quite noisy
No non alcoholic beer offered
$16 dessert of chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream was a disappointment. The cookies were not warmed and were burnt
Entrees were good
Amazing, we are glad we ended up at Lucas Local, litteraly a gem in the area
I love this little gem of a restaurant. The mussels are out of this world! Creative menu, great service and lively ambience. There was live music, which was a bit loud, as we were sitting directly in front of the musician. Otherwise, excellent night once again.
Met our friends at Lucas, and we surprised by how busy it was. Understandably, our seating was briefly delayed and staff offered a round of drinks for the trouble. Drinks were very good and shortly thereafter we were seated. The menu choices were ample and we had appetizers while we finished our dinner choices. The dinner specials were interesting and complementary to the regular menu. The food was prepared and served quickly. The wait staff was attentive and very friendly, offering help with any questions we had. There was a live performer which was nice but sound was muffled and at times too loud to continue with conversations. It was a late dinner on a Friday, we stayed without interruptions they were winding down. Overall a very good evening food well prepared and an excellent server will return again for sure
The menu had a great selection to choose from. The servers were very attentive and friendly. Will definitely visit again.
Love this place. Food is always good. The service is good. The live music is the best. Great place.
The lobster risotto was outstanding!! Great cocktail menus, wonderful service, oyster selection did not disappoint. I eat here at least once a month. One of our favorite restaurants!
A fantastic find. We will be back for sure. Super friendly staff and great food
We introduced Luca Local to friends who happen to dine out frequently. Sadly it was not the best experience. There were very few occupied tables, yet the service was extremely slow. When our meals finally were served 3 risottos with shrimp were just at room temperature. Wait staff offered to give new dishes, but we had waited 1-1/2 hour to get dinner. Our friends did find the dish very tasty. We were offered 1 free dessert to correct the situation. I have always enjoyed my meals at Lucas Local and I am disappointed that they are slacking down on their quality.
The food was tasty but it was disappointing that I could not get the blue potato salad with the lobster roll because “ the menu changes next week”, and that they were out of the “bluefish paté” because ” the menu change this week”.
Octopus also could have use a bit more seasoning. Otherwise, it was decent but over priced when you consider the shortcomings.
The special tonight was outstanding: a filet mignon sliced and served with a red wine Demi glace , accompanied by indescribably good mashed sweet potatoes and Woodfire grilled asparagus. I started the meal with oysters on the half shell from PEI and New Brunswick. What could be better!
