Cute French bistro offers great traditional fare in charming patio and interior restaurant. Wide choice of appetizers, entres and salads will satisfy everyone in the group. Mussels in several versions plus a nice selection of wines. Excellent service with friendly wait staff and a lively bar scene. A good location for parties without bothering other diners. In the summer months,... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Ridgefield. All the food is prepared to order and is very tasty. Try the muscles try the artichoke try the steak you can't go wrong.

Luc's, continues to offer a traditional French bistro experience. The food is very good and well priced, wine list is well curated, and the service is very good. If a trip to France is not on the immediate horizon, this is a worthy alternative. We are never disappointed.

This restaurant is very highly rated and is constantly mentioned as one of the best French restaurants in the area. So maybe my expectations were too high or maybe going on a Friday night when they were jamming was a bad idea. The food was okay but not nothing we would consider outstanding. The atmosphere was very busy, crowded and... More

This place was fantastic - can be a tad pricy, but if you're looking for authentic French food in CT, Luc's can't be beat. Luc's is well worth the price, and the wait. It's very popular, so you may have a wait...Enjoy!

What a great find Luc's in Ridgefielld is. A beautiful French bistro in Ridgefield. Stopped in for cocktails after dining at another area restaurant, and absolutely fell in love with Luc's. The bartender was excellent and the food app that we shared was incredible. Will be back next weekend

Very good fare cooked and presented in typical French style. Good service and ambiance. The wine list is a bit pricey if you go for something other than house.

Like walking into a traditional french bistro in France. Delicious, hardy french food with great sauces, wine and desserts. With a quaint, low ceiling, it can sometimes get a little loud inside, but there is also outside seating as well during the warm months. The steaks and fish are especially good here.

Lunch reservations for seven late afternoon. Service was attentive, menu satisfying and food just what it promised to be. Portions were very adequate, quality superb. I believe the value is very good. The terrace is nice on a favorable day, although no reservations available and not good for a larger group as tables are small. Our soups were good, sandwiches...

Out for a drive and was recommended to visit Luc's. Great place sat outside but the inside is charming. Ordered the mixed beet salad with blue cheese and my son the quiche Poirve rouge and chèvre special with side salad. The quiche was so wonderfully light and fluffy.
