    'That will be nice.' is also polite.

    First, I'm not sure why the "a" is there.

    I think "will" is the correct choice, because they are going to go for lunch. It will happen.

    If going for lunch might happen, I would chose "would".

    A...I'm going to ask the boss if she will let us go out for lunch together one day this week.
    B...O K That would be nice.

    This has been posted twice, in the other posting I have already intimated that 'a lunch' is not necessary in this context and that 'lunch' is fine.
