About Cafe Luxembourg

In 1983, Café Luxembourg opened its doors to become the quintessential neighborhood bistro of the Upper West Side. The dining room of this charming 90 seat restaurant glows in the warm light of the Jean Perzel fixtures and antique mirrors.

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.

Food is consistently good. This night the restaurant was packed and the service was less attentive and the noise way too loud. But we've been many times and will return hoping this is not going to be a pattern going forward.

Cafe Luxembourg is conveniently located near Lincoln Center. Though, the service was most accomodating and pleasant, the dinner and glass of wine were not remarkable.

So good! Went before a show at the Beacon (just a few blocks away); I had the Luxemburger with greens, my husband had the fish and chips. Both were simple and EXCELLENT. Topped it off with coffees and a delicious, crispy, caramel bread pudding that we shared. With drinks, under $100! Rare in NYC...

Arrived for an early dinner and was seated promptly. Hostess brought water immediately but I did not see wait staff for a solid twenty minutes. The restaurant was relatively empty when I arrived but filled quickly. The two tables on either side of me did not experience the same service gap. Food was great but service lacking.

Café Luxembourg should be a case study at restaurant school on how to stay the same while constantly becoming slightly more fabulous. The French bistro decor, one of New York's first has rightly remained the same and the menu is a perfect balance of bistro favorites and newer tweaks, executed perfectly. Trés délicieux

Delicious meal! The french toast and eggs any way were particularly good, but all the dishes were fantastic. The restaurant was very crowded and loud, and service was a bit slow, very popular location- the place was packed. Would still highly recommend.

Been living on the UWS for 25 years and had no idea this place was so vibrant...most UWS places are done by 10 pm, this place was still going strong...loved it, will be back very soon, also just two blocks from movies on 68th Street. Great service, food and ambience.

I made a reservation for 7 on the afternoon that I proposed to my partner in Central Park. The staff was VERY accommodating to our group and flexible with the reservation as it was a surprise and I wasn't sure exactly when we (the newly engaged couple) would arrive. Staff had bottles of Prosecco waiting at the table and were very attentive and classy throughout our 2+ hour stay. Thank you, Cafe Luxembourg! We will be returning for years to come!!

Café Lux is our favorite when we're going to Lincoln Center. The host/hostess are always welcoming (and the crowd coming in and going out in that small space would put me in a less-than-smiling mood!), the classics on the menu don't change and they are always dependently good, the wait staff is efficient and professional. Always a pleasure to dine here.

Still is a good alternative for having dinner after the opera performances. But they have a very limited menu. They just solve the problem of having late dinner around.

There aren't that many Manhattan restaurants that have been in business as long as Cafe Luxembourg and still filling the place daily for lunch and dinner. And that's because it's a consistent experience: good, solid bistro food absent the culinary flourishes that (many) non-foodies find irritating, a really pleasant atmosphere and attentive, friendly service. If you like dishes like steak frites, or mussels, or a great burger or onion soup, this is the place for you. It's totally unpretentious and probably why it's always packed. Reservations essential unless you're going at off hours.
