Years of excellence – The food does all the talking at this venerable bastion. Between Boulder and So. Logan, I've spent many a morning enjoying trout and eggs, benoits, and the many other masterpieces this place puts out. Keep up the excellent job and get a parking lot.
Yuck! – Do your wallet and your stomach a favor - avoid this place. After ordering breakfast, a drink and tipping, I ended up paying about $26 for grease and a watered down bloody mary. The food was heavy and after tasting my friends meals, everything had the same relative flavors even though we all ordered totally different things. If you want $2 bloodys/mimosas and food not soaked in grease do yourself a favor and forgo this place for a visit to the Hornet for weekend brunch in the same neighborhood.
Nothing Special – I was recommended to check this place out for breakfast. From the outside it looked so cute and nice, then when we got inside, the female indifference was well, just to cool for us. The waitress was more interested in being everyone's best friend instead of actually listening to what we wanted.
The eggs benedict was less than perfect, the bloody mary was watered down, and we were given the same biscuit 2 times after we said we only ordered one.
Food tasty, service not so bueno – I actually saw a server balancing 4 glasses of water with one of them propped up under her chin...WUH? Was my first time there. Food was good but service was mediocre at best.
Dont waste your money Lucile's Creole Cafe poor food, way over priced – Never again, i drove a long drive to eat there with my family for me and my wifes 7th anniversary.
Mind you i was very hungry by the time I got there, at first the food was ok, my wife hated it.
Very high prices, service is poor,but main thing is the food did not taste to good at all. i have it sitting in my kitchen about to go into the garbage.-almost 100 dollars to waste. never will I go there again I also love cajun food but theres is the worst I have ever had.
My wife had a bad stomach ache after dinner wich lasted the next day at work for her.
DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY.
Cool place with great service! – I came to Denver to visit friends and we stopped by Lucile's one Saturday morning.. it was awesome! the waitress was super cool, very friendly and paid attention to our special orders.. the food was delicious! the pain perdu is soooo amazing, and although we had to wait a little while, the bloody marys definitely tied us over. I wish we had one in Florida!
Best Breakfast in town!! – Went there over the christmas holiday with family from out of town. A little bit of a wait but not a problem with teh bloody marys and mimosas flowing. Plus, there is a waiting room upstairs with comfy couches, music and board games!! Food was fabulous. I had the Eggs Pontchartrain with trout and bernasie, - perfect!! The biscuits are huge and the homemade jam rules. My family wishes that tehy had sucha place in texas. Service was quick but efficient.
Bad food, worse service – Enjoyed Boulder's Lucile's and took friends to the Denver restaurant. Wait not terribly long ~20 min. There were 4 empty tables outside (in the sun) and commented to hostess that perhaps they should put up an awning. Her reply: "There are lots of things we need to do". Ordered eggs benedict. The muffing was burnt and hard as a rock. Egg yolk poached well done. The waiter was a master at eye avoidence. Had to rapid arm wave to get his attention. Long delay in getting check then even longer to get it back as he had put it in his pocket and promptly forgot it. May be worth driving to Boulder but not Denver.
No reservations...long wait...arrogant. – If you want to go to Luciles at prime time on a weekend for brunch, be prepared to wait...and wait. Please note that Lucile's will not take a reservation and will not let you call ahead to get on a wait list. Never, ever ever! If Lucile's really wants to be "the nation's premier brunch restaurant", they need to realize that brunch is often seen as an event to be scheduled with friends in advance. Even for a special occasion with a large party...even when I offered a non-refundable credit card deposit...their manager was completely inflexible on the matter. As an alternative, she had the arrogance to suggest that we send somebody ahead 4 hours early to be sure we could get on their wait list for a large table at the time we requested. Their food may be good, but it's certainly not that good. We went somewhere else, since just about every other brunch place in central Denver takes reservations.
Delicious and original! – The first time we went to Lucile's we were leary of the moderate to high prices. We then found out the price is worth the amount and quality of the food. Eventually on the 4th visit we were told we could do half portions which worked out well. My husband and I start with the beignets were are a comforting treat, warm, thick, sugary fritters. I get Hanks Eggs, a skillet with eggs, potaotes, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, onions and peppers and avocado. It has excellent flavor with just the right amount of zest. It comes with an enormous fluffy buttermilk biscuit. My husband's favorite is Farmer's Eggs, which he finds flavorful and spicy. It's busy on weekends after 10am but we are seated promptly if we go earlier.
