This place rocks. Excellent food, outstanding service. You'll feel like you're in France! Herve and his crew are pros. Fish, steaks, it's all superb and don't forget dessert!

I love it here. For years, I have been dining here with family, friends and business partners. This place will never let you down. The steak frites will make your mouth water. If you're in the mood for a sandwich, the Croque Monseur is to die for. Amazing wine selection, charming decor and an incredibly hard working staff will please... More

We have been to Luc's on many occasions for lunch and dinner. Each time the food and service has been very fine. The ambience is charming, a cozy cellar-like bar/restaurant that is crowded with locals at lunch and dinner. It is a wonderful meeting place for business people or just ordinary folks in search of something different than "the usual"... More

Located on the lower level of one of Ridgefield's oldest buildings, Luc's has the charm and menu of a classic French restaurant. Three of us went for lunch and we each had a different dish---Le Steak Tartare Claaique (seasoned raw beef tartare served with French fries), Croque Monsieur ( warm ham and melted swiss and Gruyere cheeses on a special...

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.
