Our first dinner at Cafe Luxumbourg since the pandemic. Outside seating on Saturday evening. All tables taken but not uncomfortably close. Excellent service, good food. A pleasure!

This was our first post-pandemic visit and it was VERY disappointing. The service was both intrusive and not responsive. The food was fair at best -- not up to its old standards. The worst thing was we wanted to treat our friends to dinner and gave the maître d' our credit card and a $20 tip when we arrived to make sure that our companions did not see the bill. While my husband and I were in the rest room at the end of the meal, the bill was presented to our friends who then paid it. We were very annoyed that this snafu (to put it kindly) occurred (particularly in light of a $20 tip to ensure it did not).
We have been going to Café Luxembourg since it opened in the '80s. We were very disappointed.

Disappointed that my entree wasn’t served as described in the menu. NO seasonal vegetables with the branzino, just frisée salad. Mention to our waiter didn’t do any good either. It’s SUMMER. If you can’t produce seasonal veg now, when???

Cafe Luxembourg has a wonderful sidewalk seating set up that is very attractive. It didn't hurt that it happened to be a beautiful summer day, not humid, with a gentle breeze. The service was terrific and the food was tasty.

Unusually my Bronzino was way over cooked to the point of being dry.

This is the first not good meal I have had here in 35 years.

My guess is the same small kitchen can’t keep up with the very expanded number of tables.

Kinda unfortunate

We have always found this place good for lunch and brunch. Today it was true also. We had a very ice lunch. They do an outstanding omelet. About as opposite as you can get from the typical diner version. To me they are as good as it gets.
They now have a ramp at the entrance. I hope it is permanent as I’m in a wheelchair and getting i

The ambiance at Cafe Luxembourg is exactly what you’d expect from an elegant neighborhood eatery. It’s a short trip to Luxembourg with it’s German, French and Belgian influences. The wait staff truly wants to serve you and they deliver everything from coffee and tea to delectable lunches, brunches, and dinners with pride in presentation. Love the food, the Frisée salad, eggs Benedict or mussels and frites are all delightful reminders of what it means to dine.

Had a very nice brunch at one of the outside tables. We were not rushed, the service was excellent, and the food was very good. Great place for a brunch on Sunday morning, although it is a bit pricier than other options in the neighborhood. But worth it.

It was nice enough - thought the menu and food was very good, but not extraordinary, especially given the price. We had the French toast (excellent), burger (meat was great quality), and eggs Florentine (had better). Fries were quite tasty. Outside seating was nicely separated. Service (our server) was great.

Food was delicious. The bronzino was delicious but the portion was only 1/2 of the fish and was only served with a side salad. Overpriced for what you got. Chicken was excellent.

My salad was teeny weeny and the bay kale was mostly stems, not much greenery. The "croutons" looked like 2 round potato chips which became crumbs when you tried to get them on your fork. My friends meal was so much better. I have ALWAYS had a good experience except this once. Would recommend and return to this restaurant.
My dessert: ice-cream sandwich was outstanding.
