Perfect place for Grandpa and granddaughter lunch

Need reservation. Usually a tight fit. Usually room for ladies purse to sit next to her on the banquet. Service is good if a little "efficient." Quick answers to food questions, no time to gab. Burger and fries was " the best" and Grandpa's cobb salad did the trick. Yes the people sitting next to... read more

We needed a place within steps of the Metropolitan Opera, a friend sent us here. Real solid old place with good food and great waiters. We told our guy what time we needed to be finished so we could see Carmen on time. My Pork Chop was terrific as was Victoria's Salmon, these people do it right. We shared the... More

I would recommend this place for breakfast. Nice place. The place is small so be sure to call for reservations. It's easy to get to as well.

We decided to give this a try after not having been here in more than 20 years. We used to live on the Upper West Side and I used to work at the Saloon across the street. I called earlier in the day to make a reservation for 5pm. I was told when I called that we could be accommodated,... More

Hey there Lauren and Michael, thanks for coming back to us for a visit after so long. While we're glad that you enjoyed your meal (other than the smoky lardons) we're sorry that you felt a little bit rushed with the reservation time. We try to be as tactful as possible, and this just sounds like a case of us... More

Almost a typical bistro but the food was great. I'm talking about a pork chop. Veggies too, and a good wine list. The usual close seating, but conversation was possible. I'd go back - wish it were closer.

This is a pretty restaurant, and it's not huge, so the experience felt intimate. Nice crowd, nice welcome. We could talk with one another. There were three of us, and we all ordered fish. None of it was good. My halibut was overcooked to the point where I felt almost as if I was trying to eat a white eraser.... More

My wife and I went there for an eggy brunch. I chose the salmon egg plate while my wife chose the omelette with beef & mushrooms. We were not disappointed. The taste was very good. Tea was also very good. I personally found the interior design very normal. The service of the waiter was the same as you would expect... More

Came in for dinner on a Sunday evening. At 8 PM, this place was packed! Traditional french menu, excellent wine selection. The service was attentive. As others noted, the seating is fairly tight, but that adds to overall ambiance. Food was good, although coq a vin was a little dry, flavor was perfect though. Cassoulet was excellent. Creme Brulee was... More

Sometimes my reviews can get very long, but not this one. We periodically have a weekend brunch/lunch at Cafe Luxembourg and no one does it better. The restaurant's been around for a long time and the moment you enter it's easy to tell why. They are highly organized and always ready to go for each new patron entering the Cafe.... More
