To make your Luc Lac Kitchen experience the best experience possible, we've made a list of Frequently Asked Questions to help you when you're at the restaurant. Please contact us if you have any comments, suggestions or concerns. We'd love to hear from you. Thanks!

Who is Luc Lac Vietnamese Kitchen?

We are just one big, pho sling’n, fish sauce cookin', cocktail pourin', Portland lovin' family.

Do you take to-go orders?

Yes. Please call 503-222-0047 to place a to-go order. Most orders should be ready in about fifteen minutes. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of our orders, we are unable to accommodate any special pick up times.

Do you take reservations?

Luc Lac does not accept any reservations. We are a first-come, first-serve, walk-in restaurant for complete parties only. Our space is very limited and fills up fast. Out of fairness to anybody already waiting in line and currently on our seating list, we can only take your order once your entire party has arrived in our building. Unfortunately, there are absolutely no exceptions. If we can’t see everybody’s face, your entire party has not arrived.

If you arrive before the rest of your party, you are welcome to stand in line to receive a number to hold your spot in line. Please keep in mind that this number will only hold your place in line and it does not allow you to place any food orders or be seated until your entire party has arrived.

For lunch, our busiest hours are between 11:30AM-1:30PM. For dinner, our busiest hours are between 5:30PM-9:00PM. All guests should anticipate a wait during these hours. Small parties of four or less can typically anticipate a 10-25 minute wait for a table after your order has been placed. Parties larger than six should anticipate a 20-40 minute wait. Depending on how busy our restaurant is, these wait times can vary for better or worse. Please be assured, our team will work our ass off to make sure you get seated as soon as possible!

Do you seat incomplete parties?

No. We have limited seating and there is often a waiting list during our peak hours. Out of fairness to all of our customers, we are only able to take orders and seat parties that are complete.

Is Luc Lac a full service restaurant?

No. We are a counter-service restaurant where all of our customers order at the counter first prior to seating. Customers are seated and served on a first-order, first-served basis.

Do you take large to-go orders?

Yes. If your order is over $100, we encourage you to call and place your order outside of our busiest hours (11:30AM-1:30PM and 5:30PM-8:30PM). If you call within these time frames, please understand that depending on how busy we are, we may or may not be able to accommodate your order. Orders over $100 are also welcome to place their large to-go order with 24 hours advance notice by emailing

Do you offer specialty catering?

Yes. We do offer specialty catering under certain circumstances. We are unable to deliver any food and all catered orders must be picked up at our restaurant. Please email with the number of people you are trying to serve, the date, and what you have in mind to discuss all possible options.
