Lucy Liu Restaurant
LL is a reliably good restaurant. Consistently great food, vibrant ambience and relaxed vibe. We are now regular diners there. Highly recommended.
Our family party of 6 were very excited to go to this restaurant as it was our fist time and it was for a birthday celebration. When we arrived for our booking our table wasn't ready so we were asked to get a drink at the bar, which is fine except we couldn't get to the bar because of a backlog of people also doing the same . Not a great start to our experience. When we did get served at the bar, the waiter made only half our drinks and then started serving someone else. When we stated that to the other barman, he said "well he is really busy". Not good enough! He eventually finished our order and our tale was then ready. The service and food was very good, except when the dishes came out, a few times the dishes were explained and a couple of other times the waitress just put it down in a very quick manner without explanation . We eat out often in very good restaurants, we were disappointed that maybe Lucy Lui was going to become another popular restaurant that loses its way, which we have seen happen at other sought after restaurants. I realise it was a busy time of the year with the tennis, but that's not really any excuse.
My husband and I had dinner at Lucy Liu on Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed it - the service was excellent, the food outstanding (particularly the pork hock and dessert) and lively atmosphere.
Food was great and our waitress was amazing, she ordered for us and did a great job
Awesome!!!! Lovely food and great service!!!!! A very enjoyable evening!
Thoroughly enjoyed lunch here. Dishes good. Some great. Service attentive but not not pushy. Good ambience. Prices fair. Would definitely go again. Recommend as visit.
We loved this place. Feels good, the service is superior and food is lovely. Its a 5 Star place.
From arrival service was impeccable on a busy night. We were served drinks almost immediately while perusing the menu. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable but not overbearing. All dishes were fresh with a great combination of flavors. The seafood dishes were a particular stand out. Place has a great vibe.
Food was Full of flavour and very unique. Great service
Great food and service. Always consistent so I know I will get exactly what I’m craving. Knowledgeable and friendly staff, happy to advise menu selections and amounts. Great upbeat atmosphere.
Food was great.
Portion sizes on the set menu were small.
Wait staff were fine although felt pressured to tip at the end when paying by card.
Entering via lane way is ‘very Melbourne’ and is in convenient location.
Worth a try although price per dish was a little high.
Great night! Great food! Great staff!
Amazing food, great service though would love to see a greater selection of sparkling wines. Overall was incredible food and experience.
Lovely interesting food, friendly and helpful service. We will be back
3rd Visit and it just keeps getting better. Fantastic & fun to dine there.
Lucy Liu never disappoints, great food and service.
great lively place with really friendly staff and really interesting food.
A restaurant for special occasions. The food is creative and tasty and the service is excellent. The staff are very friendly and offer good advice on food selections. This is my fourth visit and I look forward to eating there again.
Catch up with my brother who lives overseas
Sensational food, vibrant ambience and great service. We enjoyed our family dinner at Lucy Liu enormously.
Tables too close together. Felt rushed and like I was on a production line
Great vibe, awesome food, great service! Would definitely recommend to anyone!
Loved the food and cocktails! The softshell crab pancake was our favourite. The staff were great at helping us choose the right bottle of wine for our food, overall a great experience but they are very busy so book ahead, even after booking we had to wait a short time at the bar which was no big deal but highlights how busy they are
Xmas dinner with old friends
Absolutely amazing, enough said! All food incredible and will be back next time in Melbourne!
Best food ever!!! Service fantastic.... love this place.
Nice setting, but not great variety especially for vegeterians
After amazing experience first time we came back with friends again and were very disappointed with food. The flavor was not there, the onions were chopped so bad in massive peaces, that just ruined the noodle dish. I am not sure what’s happen, maybe they changed the chef or had no mood that night. Make no sense order 7 dish selection menu and get bad selection.
But I think we were unlucky that day. At least the space, the music cover 50% bad experience
We were so looking forward to dining at Lucy Liu but our experience was very disappointing. Firstly, choosing the 'lets feed you' menu was a mistake. The dishes served were really uninteresting and it seemed all we could taste was chilli. Secondly and more importantly, when a glass was smashed next to our table and glass shards sprinkled our table (one of our party actually caught a piece) after a couple of requests our plates were taken away and food replaced but we were curtly told that our drinks would not be. Very very disappointing since the glass was both a health hazard and also not caused by us.
My ever favourite asian fusion cuisine restaurant. Music rocks, food is absolutely amazing!!!! Always consistent!
We had a great dinner.Place was rocking, even on a Monday night. Food was excellent. Service was outstanding. We will be back soon to try some of the desserts. You must try soft shelled crab roll.
Thank you first time at Lucy Liu
First dish came out very quick and it was cold which I think was already made and been brought to us. Also food wasn’t anything special.
Wait staff were lovely and really helped make our special occasion memorable and smooth. Very grateful to them and great food. Will be back.
Th place was excellent however the music was played too loudly, meaning that one had to talk loudly to be overheard by people sharing the same table, let alone the style/genre chosen was repetitive and awful.
We were recommended here by a friend. I had to ring up and thank him later - he seems to find all the best dining spots! I let 'Lucy choose', it's a great option on the menu. Staff were great too.
Was great! However, would not rush back for the calamari or pork belly. It was also quiet hard to get a drink and both water glasses and wine were often left empty for ages.
Great food and great selection. Loved a great night out with friends. Would highly recommend.
Nice food, expensive for tiny bite sized food. Noisy and definitely not romantic- you are pretty much on your next door neighbors lap. We couldn't hear our waitress and we are not old or deaf. She didn't like that we never left a tip but we didn't even know what she said the entire lunch.
Service is great however staff try to push you out and clear the table!!
It’s quite annoying to feel pressured etc.
