So we called Lucques a week ago for V-Day dinner reservations and alas, we were too late. I asked to be on their wait-list. The hostess didn't sound too encouraging so I didn't think we had a shot. In fact, I had to ask if they had a waiting list, she didn't even offer. So yesterday, we get the call -- we got in at 8pm, our ideal time! So always, always get on that waiting list you never know.
Oh, and for those of you who haven't made reservations yet, years ago, my husband (then bf) and I had a great V-Day dinner at the Cafe Bizou in Pasadena. I remember having a great lobster pasta dish and my husband was really happy with his dish. Esp if you're on a budget, that's a good choice. If you're into a funkier, more festive (i.e. less romantic) time -- we were thinking Ciudad, sounds like they are going to have entertainment and, as of last weekend, they were wide open... menu sounded very good (would have been our first time).
