Located on 70th Street just west of Broadway, Café Luxembourg entertains New Yorkers and celebrities alike. The full service bar is home to many regulars. The lively buzz of the dining room is inviting and intimate. The frequency of dining customers is testament to the sincere efforts by the entire Café Luxembourg staff.
The menu changes seasonally as well as offering daily specials. The classic menu dishes maintain a level of cooking on par with the city’s best restaurants. Café Luxembourg offers beautifully prepared food with professional, yet unpretentious service at reasonable prices.
The ambience was nice, but the food was subpar. I would only return if I was in the area.
This is a really great place with a beautiful bar. The tables are close together, and it is very crowded and very loud. However, the food was tasty. Some of the portions are small, but normal for a European restaurant. Service was spectacular, but felt a little rushed. We had a main course and desserts and were walking out one hour after we arrived.
Food is always consistent. Very good. Nice buzz in the restaurant. A go to restaurant for us..
Fantastic dinner. Busy at 5:30 on a Wednesday but we were seated quickly and the service was excellent. Never felt rushed. Food was delicious and worth the cost.
Always wonderful, wonderful. My only complaint, as usual, are that the portions are ridiculously small for their cost. I could have fit my Cobb Salad in the palm of my hand.
always terrific and often with new recipes to enjoy, we have been going there for 20 years, and it never fails to perform.
Our meal at Cafe Luxembourg was, as always, delicious. The restaurant was crowded and seemed pretty noisy when we arrived, but once seated we had no trouble conversing. We love this place and always try to visit when we're in New York.
I love this neighbourhood restaurant. When I visit NY I like to get away from the tourist areas. A local introduced me to this restaurant and I always enjoy taking other out of town guests here
perfect! delicious food, buzzy but not too loud to talk, casual but still classy. great spot for before/after lincoln center.
Food is usually very good but Tuna Tartar was swimming in a noxious liquid and fish special was smokey and not part of the description. Wouldn't have been ordered if I knew.
Fun place and Nick our waiter was awesome!! Brunch was excellent! I had the pancakes and they were the best I've ever had. Ordered a side of berries and it could have been much bigger for the price! Overall great place!
We have been for brunch at Cafe Luxembourg before and always enjoy the cheerful atmosphere and good food. Coffee is delicious.
We loved everything about Cafe Luxembourg, from the ambience to the food to the service! We will absolutely be returning soon!
Very friendly staff and responsive. The food and atmosphere is bistro so be prepared for the "cosy" approach to dining. They have an unusual spin on some dishes so read the description carefully. It is sometimes a creative approach to a standard. Worth tying.
We’re going to theater with Christmas present tickets and decided to celebrate an early Valentine’s Day.
Didn’t matter what worker came by table - always attentive, always assisting.
Can’t wait fir next special occasion. Unfortunately not close to home.
Comfortable, sophisticated, good and not too expensive wine list, food very good to excellent. Very pleasant place to dine.
Always very good. Enjoy having lunch on Friday's.
As usual, we had a lovely time. Always a treat to have an after performance dinner in such a sophistocated locale.
I have gone to and enjoyed Cafe Luxembourg for 30+ years. I guess the new chef wants me to lose weight. The food was scant and my guests and I were all hungry when we left. I loathe nouvelle cuisine.
This is a classic interior and menu, a lovely brassiere. I really appreciated our server’s attention and sensitivity in getting us fed and out in time for a Lincoln Center curtain even though my guest was half an hour late.
My favorite French bistro in New York City -- founded in 1984, but has kept up with the times and is still wonderful for food, service and ambiance. Authentic, with all the traditional dishes, but updated with vegetarian and lighter options. And, incredibly kind, welcoming service. Makes everything taste better!
Essentially my all-time New York City favorite, in my personal experience since September 2001. This fine, fine restaurant has staying power, a wonderful kitchen, and a fresh and polite attitude an European ambience that continue to set it apart. An UWS and a NYC gem.
Excellent service; food & ambiance: the noise level got to be a bit too loud to have an intelligent conversation.
Disappointed with chicken paillard dish. Huge mound of quinoa and chix breast. No salad or greens. Unappealing presentation and too much protein. Tasted good though!
Lovely as always. Intimate, neighborhoods, but special and sophisticated.
One of my all-time favorite restaurants in NY. It's always perfect! The food and service is perfect. My only regret is that the tables are VERY close together and the noise level is a challenge. But neither of those observations have stopped me from coming back!
A french bistro classic since the 80s, solid bistro cuisine with knowledgeable, good service. A nice bar for those who drink, friendly staff, an UWS favorite.
Always fresh and delicious!
It was very good for brunch~ service was very good too.
Food is always good; my one complaint - they turn the tables very frequently, so it is hard not to feel rushed.
Luxembourg Cafe is one of our go-to places before attending a Saturday afternoon performance of the Metropolitan Opera. We take the train up from Philly and time is of the essence. They take this into consideration when taking the reservation. The service is extremely efficient, the food is excellent and we will continue to dine there before the Met.
Always a pleasure to dine with friends. Great hospitality no matter if crowded or not. Food is excellent. And you can never tell who walks through the door....
Favorite neighborhood location. Hosts are right there when I walk in, and always connected and on time. The bar is a lot of fun, too. They even have a table in the bar area where you can be seated, although it's not in the main part of the restaurant. The food/drinks are great. I am always a bit surprised at how much the check is when I get it, probably because I've eaten and had too much good drink to have noticed! Love this place.
Fun evening with friends and always great ambience and tasty food. Professional and friendly service.
Ours was a friends get-together and a Birthday. Everyone was very happy with their food and the location and ambience. This restaurant has been a favorite of mine for years. I highly recommend it.
Pleasant first experience. Good bistro food. Good service. Sat on time for reservation. Burger was yummy. I recommend and will return.
I love this great neighborhood spot on New York’ s Uppet West Side. Great vibes, food and service. A lively cozy neighborhood favorite. We were seated on time and never felt rushed. Highly recommended.
I'm so sorry to say that I think this restaurant has gone way down hill. It used to have much better food and be a higher level in quality. Two of us at a table of three had to send our entrees back. The lamb shank they were selling for $34 was tender enough but was on top of "pureed" polenta (they were calling it) which was a runny pool of goo and had a speckling of carrot slices (maybe 4) for the vegetable garnish. Really not good on the chef's part. My friend's steak was nothing but gristle. On top of it because of the cramped space the waiter for some reason kept sandwiching himself between my table and the next so that his rear end was constantly in my face through my whole dinner. Again, I'm so sorry to write this review as I have enjoyed this restaurant in the past, but I'm sorry to say I don't see myself going back here again.
This old standby is still a good choice for the Lincoln Center area. Food is well-prepared standard French Bistro (think Steak Frites and Coque au Vin) without too much original on the menue. A little pricey for what it is.
