One of the best restaurants in Harlem. Excellent food and service in a casual, unpretentious setting. I dined with three others and we were all impressed.

I ordered a steak sandwich which was very tasty and the French fries are cooked perfectly well. The bread of the sandwich was fresh and crusty, I liked it very much (and I am French, so I *know* what good bread is!).

Chez Lucienne has always been a favorite of ours when we are in Harlem. Its proximity to the Apollo made it a great spot to dine before the show. Perhaps is was a bad night but everything was "off" last Saturday, even the service. I won't be back especially with all the new choices in Harlem. If you don't absolutely... More
