I ate indoors for the first time since the pandemic. That part was great. But.. very d isappointed in the menu change. When did they cut omelettes from the dinner (and lunch) menu? Really wanted to have their famous omelette for dinner, as did one of my 4 dinner companions. The papardelle was not good plain - needed a sauce, but none available without meat. The rice bowl one of my companions had was not that great, she said. The food has always been good here, but maybe they have lost some good chefs thru Covid. There is never much for a vegetarian on this menu, but the omelette was always there and a great choice. There has been waiter turnover, too. Didn't feel the same old school professionalism that used to be there. Not sure how I feel about the place now.

What a treat to have dinner here inside this lovely restaurant after a year! Not only were the food and service impeccable, but safety measures were taken so that we can slowly regain some semblance of normalcy. Will be back!

It was a very cold night and due to covid we sat outside. the restaurant did the best they could , including giving us hand warmers and mylar blankets. that is the only reason I didn't rate ambiance more favorably. Food is always great and so is the service.

I ordered the Country Frisée Salad with the pouched egg which is usually quite good. This time the egg was well done, but they were good about fixing it.

The steak was cooked perfectly and all three of the desserts were good.

As a rule CL is very consistent and our go to restaurant anytime we are in the area.

Enjoyed a delicious and comfortable outdoor dining experience at a neighborhood favorite. Open sided tent and heat lamps meant our covid-cautious guest enjoyed the evening out. And the staff couldnt have been more pleasant and professional - as always!

As always Cafe Luxembourg was terrific. Great food and service. We made a reservation for outdoors. But the day after indoor dining was permitted in NY, the Cafe called us and gave us our option for indoors or out. Thats first rate customer service.

Ate outside in the parklet in quiet cold outside temps, but the heat lamps were extremely effective! I never felt uncomfortably chilly at all until just before leaving, but our party had been there nearly 90 minutes by then. The parklet avoids becoming a "Covid cabana" by not being too enclosed as some restaurants' parklets are amid this pandemic. Luxembourg's restaurant-facing side is entirely open, which allows for excellent air circulation and easy accessibility to the tables for both patrons and staff. It felt quite welcoming.

The Earl Grey hot toddy delicious. The fish and chips were good but the fish portion a bit small and the batter perhaps less flakey than I would prefer. The Luxemburger was delicious. The fries were ever so slightly cooked beyond what I prefer but were still good—not overly seasoned or too salty. The weakness of the experience was the value for money: the prices are a dear relative to portion sizes, but it is also an extraordinarily difficult time for restaurants now, and at far as I can tell, they have all raised priced in an attempt to survive.

Cafe Luxe offers well-prepared, mostly French cuisine served by a top-shelf staff. It has been a UWS standard-bearer for decades and has always attracted an interesting crowd. Had brunch on Sunday in their well-divided and heated outdoor space. Looking forward to a return meal inside, not that NYC is back to 25%

Cafe Luxembourg is a great restaurant, especially for covid. Their outdoor set up is good, with heaters above the tables pushing heat down. The food is really good (especially their mussels which are not always available now).
