The food is outstanding. The value is as well. The setting is very Bistro, comfortable and homey. We are very happy with this restaurant and have no disappointments with our visits.

Luc's is consistently very good. The staff is professional and has personality. The mussels are manifique! Cocktails are crafted not just mixed. This place has a great vibe. After dinner take a nice stroll down peaceful Main Street.

Lucs is a tiny restaurant reminiscent of a Paris bistro. Great mussels and burgers. Don't stop there everything I have ever had to eat there is very good. Nice wine list reasonable too. Wait staff is friendly and accommodating. Don't miss the frites they are super.

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
