Tired menu...the owner needs to return to france to re establish his roots, he has forgotten what good bistro food is. He seems to be more interested in chatting up and coming onto the pretty women

The service was slow and the staff was curt, typical french cuisine. The menu is staid and tired and simply overpriced. The place upstairs is much nicer.

We had a great dinner on the patio - geraniums blooming, little lights shining, wonderful music and excellent food. The wait staff was attentive and efficient. The music was really interesting, and made you feel like you were in France. Not too loud or invasive, just right.

Third time at this lovely French Bistro and it never disappoints. This time we ate outside at one of the cafe tables, on a balmy summer evening. (Inside however, is a feeling of a secret haunt in Paris, with the stone walls, and low ceilings, exposed beams and dim lighting. There is a separate bar as well, and usually cozily... More

Love Luc's - been going there for years. Excellent staff, service and food - consistently!!! The atmosphere is welcoming (always); lovely to sit on the patio on a spring or summer's evening or inside in the cozy dining area on those winter nights. Pair your experience with a night at the Ridgefield Playhouse for a wonderful experience.

From the minute you enter Luc's you are welcomed by friendly staff and transported to a bistro in Paris. This lower level restaurant is warm, friendly, and relaxing. We had smoked salmon and tuna tartare as starters, and both were excellent. Instead of a mashed tuna tartare, Luc's is diced tuna, with an exquisite presentation and taste. The duck confit... More

Some of my favorite dishes are the steak frites with gorgonzola sauce, foie gras "mousse", croque madame, but everything I've had is delicious! The atmosphere is great! You feel like you are at a quaint, countryside French bistro. Love it!

A favorite place for its authenticity...French , tasty,simple well cooked food, good French wines served by well trained waiters. A pleasurable place to take time to enjoy and relax.In warm weather an umbrella shaded patio with tables is a good meeting place for drinks, and a cosey bar inside in winter. A really good eating place...a pleasurable experience, including the... More

We have been to Luc's many times and we always return because of the decor and feel of the restaurant; not because of the food. Let me explain. First, Luc's is located off the beaten path and is in the basement of an old structure. There are incredible stone walls, wood beams and when you are at Luc's, it feels... More

Step inside this quaint establishment and you'll be in France. The interior is rustic, yet intimate. Enjoy a Croque (Madam or Monsieur) and a glass of wine without breaking the bank. All food is really delicious and worth the visit.
