We love Cafe Luxembourg! Our experience there has spanned many years, and we have never been disappointed. It is a cozy, classy, and totally enjoyable French bistro on the upper West Side. Four of us had brunch this week-end, and were so happy with all the staff, and every bit of food we ordered, accompanied by great coffee. Omelettes, French... More

If you want to have a real NYC neighborhood dinner come to Café Luxembourg and mingle with famous actors, writers and politicians. Every night there is someone famous here. Food is pretty good but the ambiance is totally New York.

Good food, the French onion soup is the closest to an original French style. Beer selection is ok, they recommended me the HERTOG Jan traditional Dutch flavor!

Is a lovely place with a great atmosphere, the food was wonderful- especially liked the French onion soup and the roast chicken. The only thing was that they really rushed us- they were having a very busy evening so guess they needed the table but it was very obvious they wanted us out quickly

The food and drinks are perfect, as are the wait staff. And there are always celebrities here. Very relaxing place in spite of that.

We needed to be in NYC on a Tuesday evening and wanted to find a more-than-special place to eat dinner, as we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. We love all things "french" so after doing some research on TA, I made a reservation at Cafe Luxembourg. We arrived on time (6:30 p.m.) and the place was already filled to... More

I've been here a couple of times for lunch recently and this time had the full evening repast. I realize I may have a jaundiced view, since I've eaten at CL for decades and like everything else in NYC it has become quite expensive. But the decor is the same, the service efficient if a little frosty, a celebrity or... More

We had dinner before a Lincoln Center concert. The food was terrific french bistro fare, and the waiter extremely careful about getting us out in time for the concert. He was also flexible about swapping spinach for french fries that came with the dish(and looked divine - I'd have eaten every one). It's a bustling place, feels fun and lively,... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
