Luc's is a lovely combination of top-notch bistro and neighborhood pub. Great service. Casual ambiance. TV over the bar and outstanding French food. We split the house Pate. To die for! Two large triangles of bliss with a couple mustards & pickles and excellent toasted bread. This an d a... read more

We went to this restaurant to see an old friend that works there. He was off that night, but I'm really glad we went. I had an amazing beet quinoa salad, and a perfectly cooked pork chop. The potato puff things were super yummy, and they make a great orange/basil press. Very efficient staff. Attentive, but not overbearing. Will definitely... More

My party and I visited Luc on Valentine's day this year. I was very excited to go and try a new place and knowing this is the same owner as Loulay I was excited to give this a try first before I visit Loulay. My food was quite good and most others was as well. Where Luc really disappointed was... More

We have had this place on our list for awhile as we had eaten at the chef's high-end restaurant Rovers (now closed) years ago. The "Chef in the Hat" did not disappoint with this cozy neighborhood bistro. I asked for a romantic table for a date night and the hostess greeted us with a " I was able to save... More

Luc was a fun bistro for a get-together with a friend. The Cassoulet was good; the butterscotch crème brulee was excellent. The ambiance is noisy, bustling. I liked the option of a 10 oz carafe of wine since my husband and I like different types and our friend opted for a cocktail from the full bar. Our server was attentive,... More

Noisy, uncomfortable wooden bench and chairs seating, no cushions. Food was bland and unimaginative, and there was a piece of plastic in my soup, and a glass chip in my pasta. We did not mention it to the waitress because, even if they would have given us a free meal, we would not go back. They have one chance to... More

Luc provides a more varied menu that most other French restaurants in the Seattle area, and their Boeuf Bourguignon made with Kobe has to be the highlight. The Dijon Pork Chop is huge, tender and perfectly prepared. While creme brulee is missing from the desert menu, the Peach Melba and Chocolate Pôt de Crème are absolutely delicious. Most of the...

Partner and I had a perfect dinner at Luc last night. We were bowled over by the outstanding quality and authentic preparation of the french dishes from french onion soup with a rich, classic stock to the perfect Beef Bourgogne. The Washington state house wine by the carafe is a good deal...lovely red. And the service was lovely...only complaint is... More

Great salads, good fish and highly value added appetizers . The wine list takes a minute to decipher only because French is such a bore but if you opt to trust your fingers you can buy a bottle with character , that is to say all the bottles are decent.

We dined here with some local friends after 5 days in the San Juan Islands. Our meal was the best we had on our trip. The service was superb for a table of 8. Would definitely go again.
