Restaurant went out of business and I had to chase the new owners for months to try to redeem unused coupons. Headache.

Great food - refreshing to have a chef with a subtle hand instead of having your palate hit with overstrong flavours and seasonings. The flavour combinations were unusual but worked really well. Beautiful presentation, perfect amount of food. One minor criticism - soggy skin on the salmon. If you're going to leave it on, make sure it's crispy!! We'll definitely be coming back and will recommend it to our friends.

Had a nice dinner at the restaurant with a group of 4 on  Friday night at 7pm. We were very impressed by the quality of the food, the ambience and impressive staff (very engaging knowledgable waiter).

The owner lacked charisma and was abrupt- not engaging at all. The busser had more personality. Had the service been better, I would have had a better experience.

Some great concepts but seemed to lack the expertise to really execute on the great culinary ideas you could see where attempted.

Honestly, I was expecting something subpar coming in with a Groupon. I was so wrong! From the complimentary amuse-bouche to the great wine pairings to the attentive service, this was a fabulous experience start to finish. We will be back!

About this Business

On a nondescript St. Lawrence Market District street corner, one of the area's top fine dining establishments hides inside a historic brick building. Lucien's almost industrial-looking facade is a stark juxtaposition to an interior where chandeliers and velvety red curtains contribute to a refined yet welcoming space. Customers dine flanked by an elegant marble-topped bar and a sectioned wall behind which the kitchen staff can be spied conjuring up the restaurant's acclaimed dishes, all made form locally sourced ingredients.

Experienced restaurateur Simon Bower crafted the eatery's attitude and decor while chef Etienne Lemieux created the menu, which stars such gems such as grilled bincho octopus and red deer bresola. Lucien's genial milieu exudes the elegance of fine dining in an unstuffy, cozy setting. The establishment has won numerous awards for its overall quality, being praised as "the city's best new restaurant" by Toronto Life magazine and placed among enRoute magazine's top 10 restaurants in Canada. Meals can be capped off with an artisanal cheese plate ($17) or sake cherries jubilee ($12).
