The restaurant was recommended by a cousin who lives across the street. At first glance it looks like a nice European bistro. It's more than that. Once you're seated you can appreciate the attractive decor, the old world table setting, and the outstanding service. The menu is very creative and varied.Three of us had three different appetizers and main dishes... More

A charming venue with old world ambience. Long white table clothes. Impeccable service and superb food. A great brunch option on the upper west side. Give it a try

Prix fixe menu is a bargain, 2 courses for $22, 3 for $28, soups are good, salads are nice, entrees are always good as are deserts. Atmosphere is also nice. Very convenient location right off Broadway on 70th, not far from 72nd street station.

It's great to hear you're a fan of our Fashion Week prix fixe menu. We do this twice a year! Of course there is the dinner prix fixe for pre-theater and from 10pm to close each night as well. From ambiance to service, we're always striving to bring that bit of Parisian magic to New York City. Thanks for the... More

Enjoyed coming back to this restaurant after 5 years. Had the mussels with fries- a really enjoyable dish. Staff very efficient, polished performers. Price was fair - ambience was good.

I had perhaps unealistic expectations for this establishment. We were invited as guests and told this was a local favorite of our hosts. You will either love the shabby chic atmosphere or wonder why they don't spruce up the place. To each his own. Our table was divided on this issue. I was craving more classic french food and was...

Cafe Luxembourg has been in business at least 20 years at their same location, which by New York standards is almost an impossible achievement !

We're so glad you and your wife stopped by with friends, Arthur. It's great to hear you enjoyed your horseradish encrusted halibut and cashew ice cream for dessert. You are correct - we've been around for 31 years (this week is our birthday, actually). Thank you for your delighted response to our hospitality! Hope to see your group again soon.... More

This neighborhood bistro is reliably good, with fast, friendly service, a nice atmosphere and consistently fresh, tasty, well-prepared food. We have a part-time place on the UWS so this is a regular spot for us when we're going out for a good meal. It's popular, so it gets crowded and a little hectic, but it's worth the squeeze. We try...

This restaurant is does not look imposing from the street, but its décor brings evokes a 1940s diner, complete with banquette seating and waiters in long white aprons. It seems like a place where residents actually eat. It was fairly loud but in a bustling, urban way that is not unappealing. Nearly one hundred tables are tucked in tightly around... More

One of my favorite restaurants in New York. I often come there alone, relatively late in the evening when most of the crowd is gone; sit at the bar. The service and food are excellent, The menu is simple which I think is an advantage: no restaurant can be realistically expected to have 20 excellent dishes. I would suggest taking... More
