A very pleasant dinner after the opera. I thought the frisée salad was a little light on the dressing, lardons and croutons but still a nice appetizer. The steak (thin but properly grilled) frites and onion soup were quite good.

Charming and friendly reception. Service was fine - not exceptional. It was busy. Food was good - as ordered. Once again - not amazing ( as I remember from previous times ) but fine.
I would ask for booth seating by the window or front of restaurant - we were in the back. Very cold out and the outside heaters just weren't doing the job it seemed.
Best for neighborhood.

Very small plate of food. We got it suspiciously quickly after we ordered it (3 minutes or so). Food was not super warm, nor super good. Not at all worth the price.

Service was okay, nothing worth mentioning. They gave us the check while we still were eating...

Wine was good, and the restaurant looked beautiful.

I ordered a niçoise salad and I was asked if I wanted to add salmon or chicken (?!?). The niçoise recipe uses tuna, never chicken and never (so much) red pepper! I choose the salmon but they charged me an additional $21,00 for the small piece, almost the value of the entire salad. It went badly.

Outstanding experience, as usual. We had our 1 year old daughter with us for dinner. The staff was so accommodating and pleasant. They treated us like gold. Service and food were wonderful. Café Luxembourg can always be counted on for an exceptional experience.

Cafe Luxembourg is always one of my favorites and on this occasion, it did not disappoint. I veered from my usual favorites (tuna burger, roast chicken) and ordered their Thanksgiving Platter. Turkey mashed potatoes, cornbread stuffing, gravy, brussels sprouts and glazed carrots. Absolute Heaven on a plate, followed up by pumpkin pie with maple whipped cream. Scrumptious!!

The French fries we cold, we sent them back. Cold a second time. My salad was boxed greens thrown in a bowl, some leaves were wilted. The waitress didn’t care, was very unprofessional. The restaurant has gone downhill!! Used to be a go to spot, now we will never go back. At those prices, you should get quality!

Sancerre by the glass was mediocre. You can do better than that. Fish and chips were average. Shrimp and grits were very nice.

Happy to see, after my long absence, that nothing had changed. What a pleasure. I make a point always to order as though I'm in Paris. Then I'm sure never to be disappointed. Alas, where is the lemon tart??

However, my toast came without butter. I had to ask for butter and dressing for my salad.

Very disappointed- I spent the night in the bathroom from what I think was some bad mussels. Read the wine menu carefully- they don’t have the same year in stock as the menu lists. We ended up with an excellent choice but it took some work!
On a high note- the frites were excellent.

A real NYC restaurant. Soft jazz in the background, everyone is older and sophisticated, it’s not showy it’s just elegant. Me and my date shared a Côte du Rhône 2017. Didn’t need to be in a decanter. Light rain, beautiful Art Deco decor. It’s really a special place exactly what you think of when dining in a classic NYC restaurant. The staff was very friendly and attentive always coming to pour our wine. It was a beautiful evening. It is top 5 NYC restaurants for me.
