We usually enjoy Cafe Lux, I think we just had a bad server. The table next to ours were on their 4th round of drinks, yet we struggled to get our server’s attention for a 2nd. I also mentioned my steak was a bit over cooked and the server just said “no it’s cooked properly”. Oh. OK.

Cafe Luxembourg went out of their way to ensure the indoor seated patrons safety. Using high-quality plexiglass, strategically positioned, we felt safe and had the added benefit of noise control. My martinis were fabulous. We had the kale Caesar, French onion soup, the steak frites, fish and chips, and croque monsieur. They were all outstanding. Additionally, for dessert, the donut holes were spectacular. Definitely take a pass on the hard-as-a-rock profiteroles and the dry and flaky cookies.

Very COVID safe restaurant with special ventilation and Plexiglas separation. Always excellent service. I love that you can simply get a salad and add salmon. Nothing you order here will disappoint. Also good desserts.

It is so good to get back to Cafe Luxemborg after a long wait. Covid has kept us at bay but vaccinations have let us can get back to dining out. We are long time fans of Cafe Luxemborg brunch. Today we ate outside where Covid precautions were in place. Our waitress was wonderful, in fact everyone from the hostess to the wait staff were great. Polite excellent welcoming service. I look forward to their great omelets and coffee. My husband had eggs and bacon and a bagel. Great bunch selections as well. We look forward to going back soon!

We had not been to Cafe Luxembourg in several years. We went to enjoy a special Easter brunch experience and were not disappointed. The service was excellent - our server was very pleasant and welcoming. The food was delicious and the ambience was delightful. Some of the best eggs Benedict with salmon I have ever had - delicate and delicious! It was a special Easter thanks in part to this experience. I would highly recommend Cafe Luxembourg to anyone.

We love cafe Luxembourg and haven’t been since before pandemic. The food and service was spectacular as usual and the waiter was attentive, good humored and gracious. Our outside table was cozy, private and warm.
What a beautiful way to re-acclimate to restaurant dining.
It is still my favorite delicious and classy spot.

Early dinner on Good Friday 2021. Very chilly temps this early evening, however Cafe Luxembourg works very hard to provide amenities such as “Hothands” Hand Warmers and shiny silver colored wrap blankets to keep you warm from the waist down. How thoughtful! And most appreciated. As always the cuisine is top notch.

All things considered the experience was good as was the food. Be careful however if you sit near the front desk as it can be chilly with the door being opened and closed continuously in order to feed everyone dining outdoors. But now with Spring almost here that shouldn't be an issue for much longer.

I do miss the waitstaff from the olden days however. The new folk are beginners, sweet in their own way but a little bashful and too soft spoken. In time, I'm sure they will toughen up or the old folks will return. On the whole however an enjoyable lunch

We order fish which was delicious and steak which was also really good
We stayed for an hour and a half catching up with friends we had not seen for a year. It was a nice lunch. We will certainly go back

I feel like I’m in Paris at a local bistro. That is the atmosphere. Everyone is welcoming and the choice of eating outside or in is there.
My Impossible burger was one of the best with Gruyere cheese, and of course the fries are plentiful and have great flavor. The tuna burger is great, order Medium rare, And the Branzino tender and great fingerling potatoes.
The dirty Martini , my fav is done well.

It was great to dine there, alone. My waitress Krystal was charming and quick. I was celebrating with a steak au poivre with fries. Perfect steak, done medium rare, with
no odd texture that tells you it's been marinated from a tougher cut. Perfect thin,
crisp fries.
