Serious food and voguish design are served up at equal measure at Cafe and Bar Lurcat. From the Chagall-inspired ceiling mural in the cafe to the Italian silk pillows and leather banquettes in the bar, Lurcat is an urban hangout that is modern, cool and loungey for Naples. Menu features three distinct sections - Market/Seasonal; Traditions, established favorites and Voyage, a culinary journey. Currently, Voyage takes us to Italy. But this isn't spaghetti and meatballs Italian, think edgy, urban - Moderno.

It's reputation precedes itself

Dined on April 24, 2016

I found this location on OpenTable and read the reviews. I've been started to check with some of the locals and everyone said the same thing… You're gonna love this place. They weren't kidding and it is well worth your time to visit this restaurant. The Mello tones of the soft jazz music live band that played that evening along with the Decour of this restaurants at the perfect atmosphere for a special romantic occasion. Service was fantastic drinks are plentiful and if you're a meat eater I highly recommend the New York strip.

Best meal this season. We have tried most of the restaurants in Naples. The food was outstanding! From appetizers through dessert we loved everything. Octopus, Ravioli and apple salad were delicious. Yellow tail snapper and brisket entrees did not disappoint. Save room for the donuts! Very enjoyable meal, great drinks and service!

Cafe Lurcat is one of our favorites. It did not disappoint. The Apple Parmesan salad is different from any other restaurant in the area. Sea Bass was excellent. We sat outside on the front porch and the evening was great.

Decided to try a restaurant I haven't eaten at. Cafe Lurkat has delicious food choices from unusual to American basics. Had a lettuce, bacon salad and the brisket and was totally stuffed. The dessert donuts are yummy, too.

Fantastic Organic Chicken

Dined on April 10, 2016

We ordered the Organic chicken that is raised from an organic farm in LaBelle Florida. The chicken was very flavorful as well as very moist. The outside was crisp and had a well seasoned outer coating. The pot roast dish with real mashed potatoes were delicious. The beer and wine selection was ample. A fantastic finish to this delicious meal, we were served some amazing homemade donuts. Outstanding!

Cafe Lurcat always a favorite, but it was much to noisy. The Jazz group was not necessary with the high volume of people there. Wanted to dine outside, but was a little too breezy and they had put their Heater's always for the season.

Amazing!

Dined on April 9, 2016

Let me start off by saying this was by far one of the best restaurants we've ate at in a long time & we eat out a lot! What a fantastic recommendation. From the moment we walked in, we felt like we were the only customers there. Stone crabs and ahi tuna appetizers were great. Kevin went above and beyond throughout the whole service. The apple/cheese/chive salad was to amazing - thank you Kevin for making sure we tried that! Next we had the salmon and miso seabass- something you would never think to make and oh my gosh it was incredible. Now dessert, make sure you save some room for the donuts. They hit the spot. Everything was great all around! Thank you for having us, we can't wait to visit Naples and dine here again. Special thanks to Kevin for the wonderful service.

Always a winner

Dined on April 6, 2016

We have dined at Cafe Lurcat many times and are never disappointed. The Chef has been doing tastings from different parts of the world on the menu. So far he's nailed each region that we've been fortunate to sample. It was Modern Italian while we were there. They also had their standard fare and some seasonal items on the menu. Goat Cheese Flan salad was complex in the flavors and textures. Salmon excellent. The Scallops just so so. Asian rice with a fried egg appetizer and the tuna tartare were a great way to start the meal. Always enjoy our evening at Lurcat.

We love Lurcat, food is always excellent

Dined on April 3, 2016

We love Lurcat and are familiar with the MPLS. one. The food was great but the service was very slow. It took a long time to get our food. We requested the kids food be served when it was done, they finished and it took about another 20-25 minutes to get our food. The server was very friendly but the food wait was way to long. He offered a nice dessert but by the time we were done, we needed to get out of there and did not want to wait for it so he gave us some donuts to bring home. It also took forever to get our bill. We had to ask another server to get it for us. We will be back as this was our only experience where service was slow and love the food.

Rain

Dined on April 2, 2016

Food and service wonderful. Just a little disappointed because it started raining so we couldn't sit outside, upstairs. We were seated in a small room upstairs where some of us had to sit looking at the wall. A shame to look at a wall in such a nice restaurant. The rain is not their fault, we just got stuck at a not so great spot. We will return and try again.

My family of four looks forward to dining at Cafe Lurcat every year when we return to Naples for spring break. The staff accommodated my gluten-free requests. My children love the pot roast and the donut dessert. The fish dishes the grown-ups enjoyed were delicious too.

Dined on March 29, 2016

The service was very understaffed. We ordered a bottle of wine and it took over 30 minutes for the waitress to even check back. It took another 20 minites for our salads. The food was good but not exceptional. An additional negative is that the wine mark ups have to be some of the highest in Naples. i am not used to having to pay nearly $100/bottle for a decent wine.

There is no restaurant in Naples that works as hard as cafe Lurcat to honor requests on reservations. The hostess staff works to make things right. The food is always on point and the new pork chop on the menu is outstanding. Our grandkids refer to Lurcat as apple cheese and chive salad night. They always have it at the top of their list of places to go.

Cafe Lurcat is a beautiful restaurant with delicious food. I love the upstairs dining room with the high ceiling and beautiful paintings. But the food is what always brings us back to Cafe Lurcat. The apple, cheese and chive salad is delicious as was the salmon. Definitely a place to go back to frequently.

Way too noisy!

Dined on March 19, 2016

We were a party of 13 in a small room with another large party. The noise level was deafening and you could only visit with the person next to you and you had to shout. Off course this added to the problem. I had a headache when I left as did most of our party. I ate here once before and sat on the sidewalk which was very pleasant. The food is good and the service good but I will never eat inside the restaurant again.

New Favorite

Dined on March 19, 2016

This was our third time at Lurcat, and it has become our new favorite place in Naples. It is classy, but not pretentious. The staff has always been very friendly and knowledgeable. Our group of four had three different entrees, and everyone loved their meal. Wine list was varied, and our friend thought the bartender was good at his or her trade. Overall, a third great experience!
