Description: LUCKY'S is widely known for its exclusive selection of USDA Prime steaks, live Maine lobsters, no-nonsense cocktails and world class wine cellar. LUCKY'S remains one of a rare few to honor the no nonsense steak dinner traditions. From the moment you’re greeted at you car by the valet, seated at your table, encouraged to roll up your sleeves, martini in hand, you are served. Are you ever served!There’s just no other eatery in Santa Barbara that practices the art of serving a prime steak dinner better than LUCKY'S.

My family and I were spending some vacation in Santa Barbara and asked a family friend where we should eat. We were told we couldn't miss eating at Lucky's and how true they were. TRULY one of the best meals I have ever had. From the Cobb salad to the sides (cheesy potatoes, shoestring onion rings, creamed corn), to the most tender filet I have ever had, the food was phenomenal! The service was impeccable also. Our server was Mystica. I mentioned I liked blue cheese stuffed olives with my martini's and she hand stuffed them for me without me asking her to. Also, we requested only strawberry's in our mixed berry dessert and she didn't even blink an eye. I felt completely at home to truly enjoy the food and my family. It was pricey, but worth every penny. Lucky's does not have the stuffy feel a lot of other expensive restaurants do.

Since 2002, I've dined here on five occasions while visiting Santa Barbara. Spouse has been here over twice as many times, and we have started bringing our children (20-somethings) which is perfect, because they value excellent food in quantity. Atmosphere and service are excellent, as well. Place seems to be filled with locals -- a good sign.

For a truly outstanding dining experience everyone should try Lucky's in Montecito. This place is pricey but well worth it. They specialize in steaks which may be unmatched anywhere. The vegetables are amazing, fresh daily from local farmers markets. The wine list is great from excellent selections by the glass to the perfect bottle to enhace your meal. Great decor with all walls full of black and white pictures of stars from years past. Old black and white movies showing in the bar. Everyone should eat at Lucky's at least once in their life. Note: We were fortunate enough to have the head waiter who insured we would have the perfect evening. He was correct.
