Luce is a complete and total puzzley. Here is the basic review: atmosphere is terrific, a sleek modern look in the hotel lobby. Service was attentive and overall very good. Very cool wine list with a great international selection. Presentation of food was beautiful. Quality of food was delicious. Very good. Here is the major problem. Portion size. I am not a big guy, 5'11" and 185 pounds so don't get the idea that I expect Hometown Buffet portions. The portions at Luce are ridiculously small, especially for the price. Shared a vegetable salad for for $14 that was basically carrots and root vegetables with some bread crumbs and olives, throw in a tomato that was halved. Beautiful display, small portion for $14 bucks. Ordered beef tenderloin for $30, potatoes were hilarious. A rectangular wedge, 4" long. 3/4" wide and about 1/2" tall. Then there were 2 small root vegetables that were halved (not sure what they were, but about the size of a small radish). come on Luce! It's potato for crying out loud. Dessert was the kicker. I almost laughed out loud at the server when he brought over the sampling of house made sorbets, 3 different sorbets shaped like a flowing ray of the sun in the design of their logo. Pretty yes, but literally each one was a a bite, and maybe the equivalent of 1.5 tablespoons of actual sorbet (let's be generous and say 2 tablespoons). At the end of the night, there were three of us, I dined with 1 normal sized woman and a very petite woman. 2 glasses of wine, 2 diet cokes, one appetizer, 3 main entrees, 3 desserts (someone in our party ordered the fall cake not sure what it was), which was even funnier because they lit cinnamon on fire on it and around it as the dish was placed inside a larger dish that looked like potpourri and it smelled the place up around our table so the guy who was sitting next to our table who had ordered a bottle of wine was not thrilled with smelling burnt cinnamon. Total bill with 20% tip was $240 for 3 people, and all 3 of us left hungry. As much as the food was great, you simply cannot leave a restaurant of this esteem and be that hungry. I almost go the impression that the place was mocking us. To put it simply, I would not return to this place especially with so many really terrific places to spend my hard earned money where I can actually spend less, get the same quality of food, and not leave feeling a pit in my stomach. Sorry Luce, I've given you my last dime.
