Great brunch

Above average Parisian style bistro. The steak tartare was very tasty, as was the salmon bagel. Good neighbourhood restaurant.

I have been coming here for more than 30 years and still like it som much that I recommend friends that plan to visit New York to go there. I know the place from the eighties when I lived in NYC.

If you're a nostalgic Francophile, or you need a little taste of Paris in your life, but don't want to fly across the Atlantic, then visit the Cafe Luxembourg located on West 70th Street, just off Amsterdam Avenue. Except for the New York accents surrounding you, the food and ambiance will transport you to Paris, sans surly waiters. We returned... More

Everything was very enjoyable at this convienent restaurant near the Triad theater. They didn't serve dinner until 5, but we were seated and offered a wine and appetizer list. The service was excellent and had time to enjoy a wonderful dessert before our 7pm show.

I made the choice of Luxembourg Cafe based on its very favorable reviews and its proximity to Lincoln Center, where we had 7pm opera tickets.

Visited this place while doing a home exchange on the upper west side. I felt there were a number of locals in the place. Had a very good non-touristy feel. LA (where we were traveling from) doesn't have enough traditional French restaurants, so this was a pleasure. We had the roasted chicken, country salad and octopus. All were excellent. Especially...

This place seemed to me like it was a bit off the beaten path, however it was very busy and the food was very good as well; everyone had a nice meal. The staff did a great job of accommodating us at a nice table when space was pretty tight. For NYC, I don’t recall it being outrageously priced. I’d... More

Amazing bar service from Jose, his knowledge was extensive and his attention to detail was outstanding. We both had a lovely experience. The food was delicious and perfectly complimented by Jose's recommendations. We will definitely be returning. The best service we have both had in a restaurant and we ate at the bar. Thank you!

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
