I loved this bistro in Ridgefield for the atmosphere, food and general feel of the place. The guy at front of house can be a bit "moody" but otherwise staff generally are fine. It is a very busy place and best to book. Very French menu and some expensive wines to match. Small bar at front and if the weather... More

Food is fantastic. Owner is very personable and makes you feel welcome. The mussles are out of this world. Then the young, unexperienced server (have been several times and had different server each time and all have been not great) need training. Interior needs updating, seating especially in the booths are worn out and uncomfortable. Tables are cramped and tight.... More

We returned to Luc's for dinner with some local friends - and once again enjoyed a good meal. It was a lovely summer's evening and ate outside. The atmosphere was very cozy and the food was delicious! One of the best places in Ridgefield!

I have been to Luc's a few times. Definitely not the most friendly place in Ridgefield. I hate places that don't take Amex and every time I bring our very well behaved children we get a bad table and attitude. The food is average to above average.

A very cool place you could enter in a nice shirt or a stylish dress. Veggies were on point and the fish was fantastic! Great service. Definitely make reservations. I liked the fact that you are able to enjoy privacy as the tables are not too close.

We thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary dinner at Luc's. The small restaurant has a cosy atmosphere and our meal was absolutely delicious.

We love Luc's because it's open between lunch and dinner. On our last visit we had appetizers, champagne, coffee and desserts. We sat at at table near the bar thar opens to the patio. We ordered the cheese plate, smoked salmon and tuna tartare. My eleven year old is a foodie and chose the fish plates. We all enjoyed everything.... More

We went for a business dinner. We had awesome steaks and the menu of the day was very delicious too. A must have is the molten chocolate cake...

I love sitting outside Luc's having a drink or dinner. Inside is cozy too. Every experience I have ever had here has been great and I often see someone I know from town. The staff is friendly, and quality is de rigueur. Hope my French is right. :P Even my martini was better than I make a home!
