Great Romantic Dining
I took my boyfriend to Ludlow's Bistro for his birthday and we were very pleased. The food was great and the waitress was very friendly and helpful. We made reservations but found we didn't really need them. I'm not sure if it was the time of day or that it was a Thursday, or if the place was not well know but it was empty, except for two other parties. The place was small, romantic, quiet, smelled nice and offered a decent wine list but I thought it was a little pricey for the setting, neighborhood, and interior decor. I hope this place was having a slow day and that business picks up because we thought it was awesome!

Nice local find. Superb service, delicious and eclectic menu beautifully presented and expertly prepared. The drinks were made perfectly also. We are so happy to have this nice restaurant in our neighborhood. It's one of our favorite places already.

Went for lunch and it was outstanding. We told the waitress to commend the chef who later came out to introduce himself and even share the recipe. Definitely will go back and will recommend to others.

Great little restaurant
This is a real gem. We have been there quite a few times and it consistently has excellent food, great service and great atmosphere. It's a nice place to go with a couple or small group. The menu is American fare. Ordered the filet mignon cooked to perfection. Give it a try. Made our reservations thru open table.

Went to the outlets in the area for the first time on a whim and knew nothing about the area. Used an app to find restaurants nearby so we could await the traffic and long drive home with a full belly and came here a little apprehensive, but the instant the warm bread basket came out with the beautiful pad of butter, roasted garlic and olive oil I knew it was the right place. Loved the swedish meatballs, and thoroughly enjoyed the Kobe beef burger (great cheese!), and had I been hungrier I would have loved to try more items on the menu. Hope to go back some day!

While driving up and down Deer Park Ave, or DPA has many folks tend to name the road, it is easy to slide past Ludlow's Bistro. I am delighted my husband and I finally went there for dinner. On the reservation form, I requested a quiet booth to celebrate our 30th anniversary. The hostess led us to a private booth, where the 3 walls ascended to the ceiling, it was perfect. The waiter was unobtrusively attentive. The Lamb Puff with cranberries and Caesar Salad set a delightful tone for the rest of the meal. The Veal Medallions were tender an flavorful and the rib eye special was cooked perfectly. The warm brownie with vanilla ice cream was wonderful. The Peanut Butter Mousse was outstanding.

Wanted to organize a party for 8 to celebrate my husband's Birthday. Our table was waiting, the food was great and the service very attentive. Brian, the owner was very accomodating! Everyone enjoyed their meal and the dessert selection was terrific.

Gourmet food in the neighborhood
Ludlow Bistro serves food like you see on TV but it's right in a quiet suburban neighborhood. It's high quality food at a reasonable price. The service was excellent. The waiter was attentive and explained everything well. The thin crust pizza appetizer was great. My only critique is the creamed corn that came with my dish was too cheezy.

Good food close by
I've been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal. The staff is pretty awesome too, nice and helpful.

It's nice to have a local place with fine dining. A great secret.

Best Skirt Steak Ever.
It's a good restaurant. Very clean, the staff is well dressed and very friendly. I ordered the skirt steak in a medium. I was pleasantly surprised by the presentation and it was a heartier portion than I was expecting. I asked the waiter for steak sauce and he said they do not have it at the restaurant but not to worry the steak is well marinated. I took a bite out of it and the steak was tender, juicy, and flavorful. Steak Sauce that night would be an insult to well cooked meat for all eternity! I told the waiter that this is how a steak should taste. My girlfriends had the pizza and that was very well done. It tasted great, it wasn't heavy, the flavors blended perfectly and it came out hot enough.

It's a hit

Fine dining in the neighborhood
Ludlow Bistro is one of those places you expect to find in some trendy neighborhood, but it's right here in our small town. The food is high quality and they're not pretentious about it. Get the Thai chicken egg rolls to start!

Excellent.. as usual
Excellent experience at Ludlow Bistro as usual. We have been going for 2 years now and the food is top-notch. Service is always excellent and ti's not too busy ever. (It's not dead, mind you, just a good flow in-and-out)...
Would highly recommend, just save a table for us!

A Deer Park Gem
Very good food at this sort of out of the way gem in Deer Park. Kind of a funky atmosphere.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ludlow has been around for a long time and I am surprised there isn't a waiting line to get a reservation!
The food is absolutely delicious. The gnocci is homemade and the Chicken Ludlow is to die for!
Can't wait to return.

We went to Ludlow Bistro for a birthday and the food and service were truly top notch.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was above expectation. This was not a good meal, it was a great meal. The menu is very well thought out and is creative. It appeals to those who might be finicky and for those who are looking to be eclectic. The ingredient combinations simply worked. Some don't look like they work on paper but they work on the plate and on the palate. Top notch preparation, presentation and quality. Service was excellent and a Terrific martini list as well. Definitely a place to check out.

Have gone here for special occasions in the past, such as our anniversary, of which we just celebrated our 24th.

Early Saturday night
We received a gift certificate to Ludlow from a business associate of my husband's. I had never heard of the place and asked a few friends if they had. It has a good reputation and we're so glad that we went. The food was excellent and our waiter was fantastic. If you are a fan of lamb, the lamb appetizer is RIDICULOUSLY good. My husband ordered the seafood cappellini and it had a nice amount of shrimp and calamari in it. I had the filet mignon which was very good/tender. It was a touch overcooked but still good.
We enjoyed our experience there and would absolutely go again. It was a nice little surprise and would even buy friends/family a gift certificate so they could enjoy it as well.

We want to move to Deer Park
We have been savoring our dining experiences at Ludlows for the last few years. The outside facade does not invite visions of exquisitely delectable meals inside their walls. We feel it is our fabulous secret. Ludlows menus have consistently delivered excellent pairings & presentations. I keep trying to invent reasons to go there!!!! Sincerely, a very content patron. PJ

Don't just drive past it, Go in! We
I live in Deer Park & could walk to Ludlow Bistro, & yet I've driven by the place and never thought to go there. Well I took my wife there for a quiet romantic dinner & loved it! We liked the decor, atmosphere and especially the FOOD! We thought everything was great. We loved that we could actually sit and hear each other, not like other restaurants. I also loved the onlline reservation. The service was excellent as was the food. We could have gone to places that would have cost double But we decided on Ludlow Bistro and we were happy we did. This will be our special place to go when we want to have a nice quiet romantic dinner. So stop driving past it and go in for a great dinner experience.
You won't regret it!

We had a nice meal and was looking forward to eating my leftovers of Gorgonzola Pillows (yum) when to my surprise my son ate it. Have to come back to Ludlows for more.

MY BIRTHDAY DINNER WAS VERY SPECIAL
"I love the relaxed feel of this place - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The calamari was excellent and the puffed lamb appetizer was to die for. The marinated skirt steak over potatoes was cooked to perfection. Service was well-timed and friendly even though it was restaurant week and very busy, wines were affordable and delish. Not my first rodeo at Ludlow, they keep me coming back for more..and each time I am pleasantly surprised. YUMMY!!!

Different and adventurous
I did not see the menu till I got there, when I saw it finally I was intrigue with the interesting combination of flavor's that it was very difficult to choose. When I did finally picked my dinner it surpassed my expectation and can't wait to go back and try something else. If you are adventurous about eating I highly recommend this restaurant.

Ludlows really creates amazingly
Ludlows really creates amazingly delicious food. An interesting fusion of Italian/Asian comes together in a pallet pleasing explosion. From the bread served with Garlic/Butter/Oil to the Fondu, and everything in between, every bite hits home. The service is prompt with water always being refilled, and the food making its way to the table at a breakneck pace. Take your sweetheart here for a classy mouth watering evening.

Don't judge a book from its cover
When first driving up it looked small, and not reassuring..
Once inside it was a casual/romanticish. The food was outstanding the appetizer something lamb puff was amazing, the pork loin was good and so was the steak stir fry... I would definitely go again!
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great little restaurant where you..
...wouldn't expect it. Not our first time here, but one of the best experiences we've had. The wife had the spaghetti and shrimp special and loved it. I had my usual skirt steak which combines great taste with artistic presentation. The pizza appetizer special was excellent.
