Lucy Liu Restaurant
Our waitress was amazing. Food was delicious and floating market cocktail amazing
We always enjoy the food here, and have more than a few favourites. Highly recommended for interesting dishes. On this visit, the service was a bit uneven and the music a tad too loud to enjoy conversation.
Never disappoints. Great flavors, menu options and deserts.
Always great. Excellent service and consistently delicious food. Great deserts especially. Our favourite!
Thoroughly enjoyed it
Staff were attentive, helpful and friendly
Food was 10/10
Atmosphere was perfect for a Saturday night
there was no soap in the bathroom!
No personal service.
I had had a recommendation from a friend and had been advised to book in advance, which I did! as it was so good!! but not in my liking thats for sure! It felt like we were just another number.. in and out as fast as they could..
so close to the next person and just so happens they weren't keen to even say hello.
Great food and service and very much Melbourne chic! We had a great night for three and lovely cocktails as well.
Had dinner at Lucy Liu before heading off to see Fleetwood Mac.
We were a group with a few dietary issues amongst us, but our waitress was wonderful, she took time to listen to the specific needs of our group, offered suggestions and was able to adapt a couple of items to suit the needs. The food was amazing and the service really excellent, in addition to our waitress being so helpful, the speed of service was great too. The wine selection was also very good, and we had a lovely table.
Unfortunately we didn't get around to trying the cocktails, we will just have to come back to sample them next time:)
The express lunch was not sufficient to be full. It was tasty but the portions were too small
amazing food beautiful Cocktails ! knowledgeable staff
Was a fantastic night, great venue, food, service and value!
Loved it! Food and service was amazing..highly recommended!!
As always, this was a very good dining experience. Given we were heading off to a Fleetwood Mac concert everything was timed perfectly. Staff were excellent.
Nice bar area while waiting to be seated.
Kung fu lager is pretty good as well
Very attentive staff, amazing pork bun.
Nice n relax
Absolutely stunning food, and service is discrete and professional. We will be back thanks again LL
Great food and atmosphere. Good service on a busy night
table a little too close together. couldn't chat in private with others sitting so close but other than that BRILLIANT!!
Really enjoyed lunch with a friend here. Menu is shared plates so were able to try a couple of things, all excellent, highly recommended.
We are from Perth and this is our ‘ go to’ restaurant every time we come to Melbourne, food always exciting as is the wine list, especially those Italian reds!

Love! Love! Love! One of my favourite places in Melbourne. I've spent many hours here ... not only is the food fantastic but the staff are genuine, which makes the experience that much better. Sitting at the kitchen bar is entertaining - buzzing!
Food was amazing, as was the service! I will definitely be coming back.
Attentive and engaging service and the most divine food!!!
Tasty, also spicy food, lively atmosphere - there’s music & noise, but you can hear your conversation too - if you want to talk - great service
This is my new favourite restaurant. This was our second visit, the first one being a walk in. Both times were excellent and surpassed my expectations in all ways. The food is outstanding, the service is friendly and relaxed and there is great ambience, thanks mainly to good acoustics. Try the soft shell pancakes!
From enquiring via email to leaving the restaurant, every staff member was extremely friendly and accommodating. We were lucky enough to have PJ looking after us and his knowledge of the food and cocktails was perfect and really made for a relaxed lunch with the best food. We loved every dish we ordered and left feeling happy and full. Thank you so much Lucy Liu - we cant wait to come again!
We came here to have dinner with the family for a special occasion. Because there was 12 of us we don’t have a choice but to choose between 5 and 7 plates from the banquet menu. Food is not worth for what we paid for. $833 for the 12 of us and we were still hungry after. Coleslaw and rice together is just not right just doesn’t go together. Dumpling we had ti share , 2 per person...i will not recommend this restaurant to anyone. It was a rip off. Very disappointed!!!
Good value lunch time menu. The won ton was delicious but the rice dish was bland
The food was excellent. The service was non existent, the staff operated like robots.
I like this restaurant for its consistently good food. You know what you're going to get and I find it always delivers.
Delicious food and cocktails, fantastic staff - can't wait to come back!
An excellent varied menu;
Shared plates provide a great way to sample a number of menu items;
Dishes appeal for quality of flavour, rather than sheer volume;
Service was efficient and amiable, without being overbearing;
A good online booking service
One of our favourite restaurants, it was a last minute decision to book Lucy Liu, and thankfully they had a spot for us! The soft shell crab rolls hit the spot (as always), and we had the fried chicken, the sauteed greens and a few other small dishes. Sadly, the pacing was off this evening, with long wait times in between each dish.
We also selected the roti which the waitstaff kindly offered the rendang curry sauce to accompany it. It was a fantastic touch, however upon seeing the bill, we were charged for the curry despite not being informed prior to ordering. The roti was also quite oily on this occasion. Hope that this was a one-off off night and that when we return next, it will hit all the big spots again!
Food quality was awful, especially for the price. We did the 7 plate feast; kingfish sashimi on a cracker, which was 10 times cracker to kingfish. A tempura fried lobster betel leaf, which had someone told me was filled with chicken it would be easily believed. A fried chicken leg served with kewpie mayo and a lemon slice. Beef salad which was entirely bean sprouts, but at least it was seasoned with enough spice to give the impression someone had tried the dish before serving it. Then after a huge break, an extremely small lamb curry, a salmon fillet with a smashed cucumber garnish and an “Asian style” coleslaw, with a serve of jasmine rice so tiny you’d think we were paying by the grain. You can tell a restaurant’s food quality is bad when the best dish is the skin on the salmon fillet, something easily replicated at home. A man I have to assume was the manager also managed to get two drink orders wrong. We were dining as a group of 6 and to a person, all still hungry after leaving dinner. An incredibly disappointing experience.
Food was ok, a bit oily. Was looking for a wow factor after being recommended however did not find it. It is fine for a casual meal, but have had better elsewhere
Waiters not very attentive. Had to wait long time to order. Also showed now flexibility on lunch menu to accomodate dietary needs. Overall food was good and nice ambience.
Great ambiance. Had a really nice vibe about the place. However, we had a terrible experience. This was all to do with the one rude waitress. We ordered the buns and she said they didn’t have any left which was absolutely fine but her attitude and delivery was so condescending. “I could have helped you with buns had you ordered 10 minutes ago but you weren’t ready “. Anyway, when she finally came back to take our order I told her I was allergic to sesame oil and sesame seeds so could she please check what I could eat. Comes back from the kitchen and abruptly says, “you can only eat the following 6 things -sorry can’t really help you”. So sadly whilst we had been looking so forward to this experience we walked out and went round the corner to Chin Chin who were happy to help us. Even put a coloured coaster on the table to ensure that what was delivered was sesame free. Over our couple of days in Melbourne we ate at Movida, Nobu, Supernormal, Mr Miyake and Kisume - every experience was amazing. It is a pity that an individual like this can influence such an outcome.
Food was good but pork hock was burnt on the outside so couldn’t enjoy the crackle. There was one horribly rude bar staff that seemed to ruin the experience a little bit for us. I had to return a Champagne because it was flat and he said rude and argumentative about it. Besides that everyone else was great. Would go back again and hope for a better experience.
I have to say i was most disappointed.
It was a special family occassion and the service was terrible....
My husband and i have been numerous times to take friends and clients and have always enjoyed fantastic service and food, however i was so so disapppointed to finaly take my family for a family celebration and for the food to be sub standard ( e.g a lamb curry for 6 people to only have 2 pieces of lamb in the curry is not on) and for the service of upto 4 different staff bar and waiting service to be far from friendly or attentive.
So So disappointing.
Love Lucy Liu, the food is always fantastic. Service was a bit average, kitchen forgot one of the mains, and felt super rushed at the end. We waited for long for the main and then didn't had time to have dessert. The last person who charged tho changed the mood by being super friendly.
Amazing service - would like more wheat free food. Recommendations were great and good knowledge of food and wine
