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.
our food was great, I loved the scallops and the octopus as an appetizer. I will say that my dates Titos on the rocks was a little light.
the service was excellent, the waiters and staff could not have been more attentive.
really enjoyed the evening. I need to go there more often.
A great West Side spot. Delicious food, cheerful service in a room reminiscent of Paris. A real treat.
One of my favorites for refined breakfast in Manhattan.
One of my favorite places! Consistently great food and great service.
I have wanted to try CL for some time now. I wasn't disappointed. It manages to be iconic without being predictably so. Highly recommend.
The Cafe Luxembourg is an expensive restaurant but fully worth every penny. The staff is unusually pleasant and courteous. It is my favorite restaurant in New York City.
Service is superb. Food excellent. Friend had issue with how fish was prepared. It was addressed immediately with no fuss or drama.
Café Luxembourg is a charming, European-style café with great food, ambience, and service.
Pricey, but worth it. That’s the reason this favorite has withstood the test of time.
Jimmy is the best. Thank you for the great service
Consistently delish! Banana bread to start, avocado toast, salmon eggs Benedict, French onion soup, our favorite brunch spot in the city and never disappoints. Friendly staff and charming setting.
Extremely attentive and charming waiter made a lovely dinner even nicer.
Reliable food and service. Elegant environment. A bt noisy if you are near a large table.
Our waiter Crystal was amazingly attentive and efficient. Excellent mussels. Great Gruner selection. Consistently good.
Tables are so close together that it is now uncomfortable. Even though the food is good, the comfort level is so poor, that going there is only out of convenience, which is a shame. I've lived in the neighborhood since even before the cafe opened. It had a much more diverse menu, and was much more comfortable. It was a special place to go to. Now its just ordinary, noisy and uncomfortable.
Like the environment but wasn’t crazy about my mussels, and the French fries are normally delicious but they weren’t hot and were over fried. Also no bread was offered with our table.
Always reliable with cozy bistro food that is well-executed. A perfect neighborhood place with a menu to satisfy most anyone.
A lovely restaurant in every way: courteous service, excellent food and flowers!
Cafe Luxembourg is my go-to restaurant when I'm home in New York. It rarely disappoints in both quality of food and the ambiance. Our server was attentive and accommodating and "pleasant". The European tone is reminiscent of many restaurants in Paris...... Enjoy your meal!
Very nice ambiance, could actually have a conversation and hear, good food, attentive service, and we weren’t rushed.
Salad nicoise at lunch was $24 and tiny. It was lacking authenticity as well with way too many capers and no anchovies. I left hungry.
Cafe Luxembourg is a neighborhood gem - well worth the visit. One of the nicest menus out there - something for everyone but not too much that reading the menu consumes your visit.
Loved the ricotta pancakes for brunch!!
I really appreciated our server being proactive and asked if we had food allergies.
We have a great sentimental attachment to Café Luxembourg: it's near our apartment, it cleaves to the great bourgeois traditions of French dining, it caters to a wonderful subset of New Yorkers--upper west siders of a certain age who may have been left behind by the frenzy of gastronomic trends--and the food has always been on a scale between reliable and excellent. Not so excellent this time, however. Tuna tartare was overpowered by a deep puddle of soy (?) or something else very salty, the steak was average, not all the vegetables were identifiable. An off night, we hope.
What a wonderful dinner in a wonderful restaurant! We loved everything. The rib-eye steak for two was fabulous!
we went to café Luxembourg before a show at the Beacon. They sat us promptly and the service was excellent. It was a good value, considering we were able to order from the pre theater menu. If we are in the area again we would certainly go back.
The staff here are all extremely nice, courteous and well trained
Our favorite place to go on our first night, whenever we visit NYC. Love it.
Yes, it's a great spot for a lively romantic dinner with your loved one, or a small get-together with friends. The hosts and servers are very warm and helpful, but since the cafe is busy, crowded and lively, on a weekend night you won't get the focused attention you would receive at a finer restaurant
Good food good service congestion at the entrance made it difficult to enter & exit
Our waiter was extremely attentive, the food was superb, the experience was wonderful. Perfect for dining before a show at The Beacon
While this is such a pretty restaurant it is a total rip off! I had a tuna Niçoise salad, which had 2 minuscule pieces of tuna — and they were really over Cooked! Ugh — way to much to spend on such small, uninteresting portions
Always good but too loud
Ate dinner late on a Tuesday night after the opera. Staff was lovely and didn’t rush. I hadn’t been here in decades and was as good now as was then. Steak tartare was 5 stars, side salad..meh. Signature Manhattan...damn that was tasty. I’ll be back soon.
Excellence as always.
My husband and I have been dining at Cafe Luxembourg for many years and it is always a delight.
Cafe Luxembourg. As fabulous today as it was when it opened!
