The place is located in the back of a shopping mall in the basement of another restaurant, so duck if you are really tall. Inside, it felt as if you are back in France with friendlier wait service. The food was fantastic! The wine list is extensive, and better if purchased by the bottle.

I love coming to this restaurant. I have been a handful of times on different occasions such as my birthday, my anniversary, etc. It is very romantic and lovely. I have never eaten anything here that was not delicious! The staff is very help and accommodating. I would recommend this place to anyone.

My husband and I went to have dinner at Luc's last night for our wedding anniversary and had our 9 y/o daughter with us. Because we were only a party of 3 we could not make reservations in advance. When we walked in the host (possibly owner?) seemed a little put off we were not local clientele, and could only... More

I am a regular at Luc's and love this place. Never disappointed. Wine specials are special. The frisee salad... the chevre salad... the mussels... the chicken... the staff is full of long-termers and it's always a good time.

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.
