Love this place! Am going to miss goign to my local haunt during the shutdown.
Please support your local restaurant! Cafe Luxembourg has a great staff and always serves wonderful food.
Excellent food. Happy place!
In a word, Café Luxembourg was terrific. just the thing to ward off the COVID-19 blues. The maître d’hotel was able to honor our table request, so we were in a perfect location. The service was very good. There were interesting things on the specials menu, so we got to try a pan cooked halibut in a delicious green broth. I tried the special dessert, the passion fruit and raspberry pavlova, which is one of the best desserts I’ve had anywhere. We come here often and are never disappointed, be it at breakfast or dinner.
A lovely spot for dinner with a friend or a date.
We've dined there for 30+years. Last night's dinner may have been the best ever
Steak frites wonderful, as always. Meat perfectly done and fries delicious. I tried the endive salad for the first time, and it was crisp and refreshing. Coffee and the caramel infused mille feuille rounded out a wonderful post-concert meal.
We keep going back to this favorite. Food and service is consistently good. The prices not so much.
Always great food and service. We never feel rushed.
Should hsve some pretty fix lunch specials like they do for dinner.
Transports me to Paris! Excellent food. Still thinking about my shaved Brussels sprouts salad and salmon entre on top of root vegetable pure. And the piece if chocolate with the check was unlike anything ever ... need to find out what that is! Awesome. The got us in and out quickly before a concert.
I had a business lunch and I it was way to talk and be heard. The wait staff was very cordial and efficient. The food was good and the coffee was excellent .
We had a lovely luncheon to celebrate two friends birthdays. Service was most attentive, the food was excellent, and all of the special notations I had made in my online reservation were taken care of. This restaurant has been in the neighborhood for many years—deservedly so— while just about all the others have turned over multiple times. There are many good reasons for that. It’s a little too pricey for a casual weekday lunch, but worth every penny for special occasions.
A very pleasant lunch with family.
Been coming to Luxembourg for over 35 years. Never disappoints as a total package. Great vibe. Friendly, efficient service and food good to great. This time it was simply good. Presentation was a little prosaic.
It is a regular for us. Food and atmosphere are always good.
The best brunch spot in New York
The go to place for Sunday brunch.
Our waiter was polite but in the weeds as service items were a bit delayed.
Wonderful from the food to the atmosphere to the service
Always one of our faves in Lincoln Center area. Wait staff is exceptionally friendly.
Cafe Luxembourg is great, I am a regular. The burger is outstanding. Make sure to ask to add chevre to the greens. A+
Cafe Luxembourg went above and beyond to make my boyfriends special day amazing! It was my first time dining here and I can’t wait to go back :)
Always and forever a classic.
Grilled octopus is outstanding. Burger is also very tasty
Classic bistro, been there forever. Well chosen and tight wine list, excellent martini, and nice to dine alone or in a pair at the bar. I wish they still had hb eggs in a stand on that beautiful zinc bar but ‘tis a thing of the past...super moules frites, steak frites, truly tasty burger - salade lyonnaise, soups, and heartier fare like cassoulet and halibut. Perennial fave, close enough to Lincoln ctr for pre or post theater, when they also have total deal dinner prix fixe
For the most part, I dine here whenever I have business or pleasure on the upper West Side. I have never had a bad meal. Everything is consistent, atmosphere, staff, menu selection, etc... What's not to like? Cafe Lux has a very strong local patronage which should tell you everything you need to know. It is a gem of a restaurant and if you try it and don't enjoy it, then you should probably have your head examined.
Have loved Cafe Luxembourg for decades and so was shocked that the legendary Belgian Chocolate sundae has been “updated” with different sauce. PLEASE return to the perfect original!! Don’t worry. I’ll return too.
Always the place I take my friends to impress
Food good. Well rin
Going to Cafe Luxembourg is like visiting an old friend who has something new to show you. Long been a go to for our family on the West Side. We were especially enamored by the Beet Tartare. Raw shredded beets with a lovely spice reminiscent of Morocco. We really enjoyed the use of spice, cashew and orange in this dish. Tagine spiced lamb was a great way to extend the flavor profile. Steak frites always a favorite. Nice selection of wines by the glass to accompany our dinner.
We were celebrating our nephew’s 21st birthday, and the food was fabulous as always. The service was even better! They went above and beyond to make it a really special evening.
The food is excellent. The coffee is, too. It can get crowded and so the noise level is high. If you are a party of five and NOT at a round table, it's very hard to share a conversation. So if you are five or more, you should request a round table. The service is great. This is a most reliable dining experience.
I asked if the omelet came with toast
The answer was no but I could substitute potatoes for toast
The omelet was served with potatoes and no toast
The waitress was called and she came with a plate to remove the potatoes
We’re they to be given from my plate to another customer?
I said for her to bring me toast
I was almost finished with my omelet when I was served two
Pieces of bread both of which I would not call toast which were eventually cleared uneaten
The hostess came over since she heard i was unhappy
Her solution: we will not charge for the toast
And she was not kidding
Will I ever return for brunch?
Great evening. Great service. All around great fun and atmosphere. I highly recommend it
This is our go to place. We love it here and have never had a bad meal or service. They always get an A++ for consistency in quality of food and service, not to mention the amazing ambiance.
Excellent experience. Omelettes are great!!
Food good but noise level at lunch makes conversation too challenging to be worth it. I would not reserve earlier than 1:30.
Café Luxembourg is amazing. It has been around forever, but the quality of the food and service have been consistently good - no matter the meal. It’s delightful at breakfast, where the soft scrambled eggs are reliably soft and the coffee delicious. It’s delightful at dinner, where the seafood is always fresh, the fries crisp, and the simple shallot dressing on fresh greens is perfect. Recently, I had a roasted sea bass in a white wine lemon butter the other night that was worthy of a Michelin-starred restaurant. It was accompanied by patipan squash and sun-chokes that were perfectly cooked and a delicious change from traditional vegetables. Sadly, no room for dessert,but the offerings were tempting. The wine list is limited but there are good choices available. My only reservation is that the room tends to be noisy in the evenings, especially if you are seated near the bar area.
