The duck, chicken, mussels, beef, are all excellent. It's very good, hearty, French bistro food. The service is quick, the ambience warm and friendly. On a cold winter night it's fun to hunker down in the cozy cellar atmosphere, and in the summer, all the patrons are jockeying for a table out on the patio under an umbrella. Fun place... More

Another perfect meal at Luc's! Food service and atmosphere are the best Ridgefield has to offer. I'll be back. Love the Tartar and the buzz.

The place is wll appointed but a tad gloomy, lighting-wise, if your party is seated in the main dining area. This, being our second visit, we opted for a cafe table in the bar area, right in front of the restaurant's only windows, overlooking the outdoor dining area. (The bar was not crowded at brunch time...really nice.) Luc's menu is... More

Luc's is my adult daughter's and my restaurant of choice for our Mommy-Daughter Days. The food is always delicious, the service is friendly, and the atmosphere is inviting. One of Ridgefield's best.

What could be better.....Escargot and Steak Tatar. Oh yes.....some very fresh and tasty mussels as well. Very tasty and served by a very attentive waitress. Lucs is most likely the best French restaurant in the area. What more could I possibly say??? Wow!

In the last month, I have visited Luc's three time- twice for lunch and once for dinner and had a wonderful experience and meal. I highly recommend it if you love French food- the soups at lunch are so yummy and the quiches and omelettes as well. Dinner is a bit more formal but just as tasty. The waitstaff is... More

Worth seeking out if you are in the area, or heading to the Ridgefield Theatre. Authentic. Cody. Well done. Lively. Good Manhattans.
