“Authentic French bistro food in Ridgefield”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Love the atmosphere of this gem in ridgefield. The menu was authentic bistro fare. The pâté which is one of my favorites was only so so. But the rest of the menu looked fantastic.

“Authentic”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I spent two years in France and luc's could be a bistro transported directly from Paris. The mussels, the fries, the sauces and the ambience are all authentic and well done. The restaurant is located in the ground floor of an old building that creates the perfect atmosphere for bistro - cozy and comforting in the winter and opened up to a lovely outdoor patio in the summer.
Because it is good, it can be busy and noisy. It is also important to call ahead. My only complaint on the menu are the wines by the glass which don't offer the same quality as the food, good mind you, but not quite as special as everything else.

“Classic French bistro!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Cozy atmosphere, but can get very loud on the weekends.
The menu doesn't ever change, so you always know what to expect, but it can get tiresome. They always have specials, but you have to get the sole meunière. They really know how to make it tasty!

“Authentic French”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Warm and charming French bistro with lovely outdoor seating. It can be very noisy inside with an often lively bar scene. If this is what you're looking for, great. If not, you might try somewhere less hectic.

“Great lunch during a snow storm!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We stopped here during one of those last large snow storms and they were open! We both ordered some pate to start and the burgers. The pate was delicious and so were the burgers; we will definitely be back again!
