Excellent restaurant

Great casual place to go with friends or family or special occasion. It will not disappoint! Great wine list and beer choices. Love the steak and frites!

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

Luc's is a hidden gem. Open mid afternoon when the other local restaurants close, we wandered into Luc's for a delicious surprise. The restaurant, located walk-out first floor style under another restaurant is bustling with activity and charm. You feel like you have your private space, not like you're just another seat in a banquet room. Maybe it's the seating... More

Hubby and I popped in for a quick drink and some appetizers. Great atmosphere and service. A little pricey, but great for a date night.

Luc's is by far my favorite restaurant in Ridgefield. Definitely a go-to spot whenever my husband and I are craving a wonderful meal close to home or we have friends & family visiting. We have been here a ridiculous amount of times since moving to the area - Luc's never, ever disappoints. The interior is charming and cozy, perfect for... More
