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 good but felt a bit rushed. Management and waiter hovered in an "are you getting up" manner, not in a "can I get you something" manner. We were there less than 1 1/2 hours. Arrived at 5 PM and had a 7 PM curtain.

Great for a pre opera dinner( in our case) or post opera (also have been done before).
The wait staff was very attentive to our time limitations, and made the experience enjoyable.

Great service with excellent food - as expected. Nice to see my go-to favorites, the French onion soup and the steak tartare have maintained their quality over the years.

Brought family in from out of town and from the moment we walked in it was a warm, welcoming experience with well executed comfort food standards and a great wine list. Can't wait to come back.

This restaurant has always had fine food, but it used to have old-fashioned French food. The food continues to be excellent, but is now more modern and somewhat lighter. They accommodated our need to get to a performance on time without apparent effort. I will be back.

Our favorite go-to in the neighborhood - for any occasion.
Besides the tasteful space & ambiance, very tasty drinks, food and desserts, the staff is amazing and what makes every evening so enjoyable; it's one of the most professionally-run places in town. They never disappoint.

Been to this restaurant several times but over many years and it has never disappointed. We arrived early so we began by sitting at the bar and having an order of fries and beverages. Not a glamorous appetizer but they looked good and they were. Getting a seat at the bar can take a few minutes (with or without dinner reservations). We were seated promptly at our reservation time. I had the strip steak, husband had the beef bourguignon ($40:$32). Both were very good. I mean really good. What I LOVE about this restaurant is the consistency of great food and service. So rare and so appreciated.

Dined Tuesday night before going to the Beacon. Not from NYC, so it was neat for us to eat in a place that seemed to be popular with locals. Good service, very attentive without being overbearing and my wife and I really enjoyed the food from apps to dessert. We will go again!

I chose this for a birthday dinner for my wife. Impeccable friendly service. Delicious food, we chose the Pre-fixe with appetizer and entree’s. Brussel Sprout salad and chicken liver mousse were divine and entrees creative salmon with beet purée I could eat again and again, flavor and texture with the fried chickpeas were a knockout. Dessert did not disappoint with a special that night of German chocolate cake. Thank you for making this evening special! We’ll be back for sure and next time with friends.

Everything was fine until the bill came. We dined prior to a concert at the NY Philharmonic. Promptly seated and served. My husband and I both ordered steak frites and a very nice bottle of red wine. We were asked if we wanted a sauce with our steak and were given a choice of 3 so we each picked one. When the bill came, we saw that we were charged an extra $2 each for a THIMBLE of side sauce. When we inquired of our server, we were told, "oh, didn't you see that there was an extra charge for the sauce?" Outrageous. Ketchup would have been just fine. Will be a long time before we go back.
