Have been coming here for years. The food is always the best. Servings are large so bring an appetite. Very small and quaint, and the tables are very close together, so can be slightly cramped and possibly talking over their conversation... Would recommend to all.

Having lived in Ridgefield for 20+ years, we have seen the hot restaurants here come and go. A wonderful, classic, intimate French restaurant over all those years has been Luc's. Yes, perhaps noisy when packed but what isn't?. With decent weather the patio works well. The classic French dishes are always very good and sometimes great. Service occasionally has small... More

Cozy and welcoming, always a good start. Well worth a detour as Michelin might say. Wine friendly. Accommodating if you wish to bring your own favorite wines. (The corkage charge is only $25/bot.)

Love this place. Never disappointed. Good French fare, not overpriced, cozy country ambience. Classic bistro standards are consistently good and creative specials and small plates are perfect for a drink and a bite with a friend. Duck Confit superb! Give it a try!

Very nice, low key, delightful food. Service is fine. Hidden away but worth the easy search. Look for it behind Main Street on the lower slope.

This is a delightful restaurant with a very French atmosphere and consistently delicious food. We live in town and go back frequently. Their french fries are outstanding.

Perfect for special occasion with friends and family or a romantic interlude…the mussels are marvelous, a friend travels from Greenwich especially for a Luc burger with gorgonzola..fortunately I don't have to drive that far. It's my favorite in Ridgefield and beyond.

Went for an early dinner. Sole meuniere tasted "wet" and "mushy". When we said something, the waiter said it was fresh. I don't know if it was fresh, but it was prepared TERRIBLY. My friend did not eat his at all, and still the waiter did not seem concerned. Will not go back for the food.

We recently came here with friends on a Saturday night. Service was prompt and the waiter payed close attention to us the impression however was in part to get us out for the next seating. Two of us thought their meals were great and two of us were greatly disappointed. My meal was cool and over cooked. Our friend only... More
