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 were expecting so much after hearing so many good things, but it just didn't materialize. The food was ok, the service was generally poor, but the ambiance was very nice. It was moderately expensive and not a good fit for us.

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.

Although it was a bit pricey, the food was wonderful. Dining Al fresco was a real treat and our waiter provided good service. All in all a good experience.

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
