I love this place. I have been going here for almost 40 years. The food never misses the mark and the service is impeccable. Noise level is high, but that's because this bistro is a wonderful restaurant.

As usual, our meal was impeccable. Six delicious oysters, briny and super-fresh. Lobster roll with just the right amount of lobster. The extraordinary french fries—best in NYC. Creme brulée. Light-handed service. And the pleasure of sitting near one of the world's most extraordinary operatic basses. What else could one want, really?

Had lunch outside with a friend. Rain was expected therefore the outside facility was not crowded. Food and service we’re great. Highly recommend.

I have loved Cafe Luxembourg for so long; it has never disappointed in the past. There has been a chic French hustle-bustle to the dining room and I have recommended it to many, many friends.

This meal was fine; I met a friend there who was underwhelmed which made me feel bad given that I had talked about how great it was. I'd still go back in the future.

Perfect except it was for a birthday and the serving staff totally forgot. I didn’t mention it because it was supposed to be a surprise.

I know stuff happens and I know your wait staff was very busy . Still and all…

One of my favorite places for lunch. Why? Good food that never disappoints and a low noise level that allows for catch-up conversation with friends. Also Banana Trifle!

We loved it all. Delicious food and great service. One complaint, the hot fudge sundae as delicious as it was, was way smaller than last time and 4 dollars more expensive. That’s the one thing I didn’t like. Not a fan of of overpriced items for no reason. I was there a month ago and it was the best dessert I’d had in a very long time. I even bought a pint last time.

I’ve been here twice now and the waitstaff has been rude both times. Food is fine, not great. Today we were served the smallest mussels Ive ever ever eaten - I honestly had no idea mussel meat could even be that small. My girlfriend and I live in the area and really wanted to like the place, but doubt I’ll ever come back.

Food and service outstanding as always. Have been eating at Cafe Luxembourg since I moved into the neighborhood in 1988! NEVER disappoints. Kristel may be the most outstanding server I’ve ever had.

A great place to catch up with friends. You can’t fo wrong with the Luxemburger, tuna burger, or fish and chips for an easy, happy time. Great profiteroles for desert!

We enjoyed the outdoor dining experience, expedited by attentive staff who really care about the dining experience. A plus is the outdoor lounge. Important to repeat the staff: reception, servers, bussers, I am sure kitchen folks as well, THE BEST!!

Over the years dining at Cafe Luxembourg has always been a great experience. I am happy to say nothing has changed except the menu due to circumstances beyond their control. All 3 meals were delicious, the service was attentive and not rushed. Looking forward to returning.

For years I have been going here this time around the salmon eggs Benedict were cold one egg well done and the other medium well, the French fries not consistent and overly salted.
Extremely disappointed.

Some things blessedly don't change. Simple, well-prepared food expertly served in a frozen in aspic Paris in the 1950s setting. The days of late dining seem gone (we closed the place at 11:30), but maybe the apres-le-spectacle quality will return when Covid is more under control.
