Luc's is our family favorite.

Luc's has been our go-to restaurant since shortly after it opened. We have celebrated numerous birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and all things in between with great meals and hospitality at Luc's. Great atmosphere, excellent food and wine, professional and friendly service. Always!

I love the feel of Luc's - especially on a snowy night when it's not so crowded. I've been many times here - and it does get crowded. Go on a quiet night when there is line to get in. They only take reservations for 4 or more. I love the vibe, the whitewashed ceiling and beams and the great... More

Feels like you're back in France. Great little place with outdoor dining weather permitted. Food terrific & authentic. They don't rush you either.

Luc's is a very busy French restaurant/bistro with excellent French cuisine and knowledgeable wait staff. We ordered very traditional dishes (escargots, cassoulet, magret de canard) plus one special appetizer, rillettes de saumon, then profiteroles. Portions were fine, preparation very good and excellent service. Good house wines. A little hard to find so ask how you access the parking area they... More

My husband and I enjoy slipping away for a drink & bite to eat at Luc's. Love the outdoor patio seating in the warmer months & it's nice & cozy inside for the cold months. Definitely two thumbs up!

We have been to Luc's several times and find it to be good quality, pretty stylish, laid back trendy, and a little aloof. Quite French really. I think the restaurants low key celebrity connections possibly contribute to some of the above (if only in terms of some of the clientele) but we have seen much worse elsewhere. The food is... More

In central Ridgefield with easy parking. Relatively small/intimate with rustic decor. French menu & wine list are superb. Service staff were very friendly & professional. The presentation of our meals was excellent, quality & quantity-wise for the price. The great thing is that no one hurries you up & you can linger. A very comfortable place! We will definitely return.... More
