Very packed, the service was exceptional. If you dont have reservation, you probably have to wait forever. The food was really good. We ordered a Eel roll and one a piece of Toro ($15!!) it was very fresh though, but one piece... that's crazy, we also ordered the one piece of wild hamachi, again so fresh!. I ordered the Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass with wok vegetables.... The fish was so tender in every bite! I never had sea bass that was so uniformally tasty. The entree was really big I had to doggy bag home, and my family tried it, a few seconds later it was all gone. We also ordered the Roasted Chicken, the sauce was really good. Finally we finished the dessert with a Giant Fortune Cookie. The custard was amazing! Vanilla in one and Chocolate one. This was so good. This was a very expensive place though. It would be a one time fancy dinner out, but definitely can't go here all the time.

Luckie is one of those places that's nice...but it simply doesn't know what it wants to be. A sushi bar? A sports bar? A club? We went on a Friday night, and the first thing that struck me was the big brothers standing outside in suits with earpieces. My wife looked at me confused as we walked past. They opened the door for us and nodded respectfuly...but all the time I'm wondering...why are you there? The girls up front were over-worked but cool and we were seated promptly. The food...hmmmm. The menu is all over the place. Sushi, seafood, regular American diner food, 'Mexican'...no focus whatsoever. My wife ordered the sushi and I ordered a pork chop. My meal wasn't horrible but it wasn't really good either. In fact, I can't remember what it tasted like. The sushi was ok but it was, like, breaded or something and that got tired really quickly. The deserts were bland as well. The atmosphere is nice...it is loud, so I wouldn't recommend this spot for intimate or romantic intentions. The restaurant is bathed (at the time, I understand) in blue light with a huge aquarium on one side of the building. There are several large screens on the back walls that were playing random whatever until, suddenly, 'Cool It Now' by New Editions starts blaring from the speakers accompanied by the music video. The crowd (especially the girls) responded with a lot of enthusiasm and that made it more palatable, since I really wasn't in the mood for throw-back R&B which continued the rest of our stay. So, all in all, this is a fun place. The only thing that stands out is the atmosphere...but, sometimes, that's all you need. Oh, and uh, definitely check out the bathrooms. Took me about 20 freakin' minutes to turn the sink on :-) Oh, and Atlanta, please stop paying for parking. Atlanta is not that dense (population wise) of a city yet that you have to pay for valet...park down on Luckie St and walk! Peace.

I second Stephy's review...all kinds of weird. Nothing odder than standing in a giant box of a room in broad daylight while a disco ball hangs over head. Nothing. Well...perhaps a few things but I won't delve into those things now. lol Definitely had the space to host an event such as LA Winefest and the place looked like it could...COULD being the operative here...be a fun place to dance ...perhaps. Very rave-y kind of spot. SO who knows. Doubt I ever will...but if it's another winefest or the like, count me in.
