Incongruously sited in a mall, this is a place where a capable chef serves very good, satisfying food with a small, gracious staff. Well worth patronizing to decide for yourself...

Luc's appears to have changed ownership and along with it all the quality that a nighborhood bistro had to offer. Sorry, but I can't stand behind my earlier review of what was once a fine place for a cozy dinner or snack.

For a gourmet experience at average prices you can't beat Luc's Bistro in Poway. The chef makes an extra effort to add a flair to well-known entrees - and the Tuesday night special of a burger and a beer cannot - but cannot - be...More

A gentleman at church that morning recommended we try Luc's for "non-chain" lunch. Our Arnie Palmer's were refilled with efficiency and the food was delicious. Prices were right also. We'll go back for sure.

This is one of our go-to restaurants in Poway, especially when we want really good, reasonably priced food that is not boring! The chicken and dumplings is my favorite comfort food but everything there is outstanding. Good deals on wine as well.
