French fries were not fresh and there was way too much mayonnaise in the lobster roll.

Service was attentive but not over the top and very friendly. All the food was incredibly delicious and even though they missed our order the entree came incredibly quickly. Highly, highly recommended.

Professionalism experienced from the door upon arrival. Was welcomed by hostess, seated by another lady with smile. It was my first luncheon here. Olivia was a great server who always came by to check how was every course. Attentive and friendly service. Loved French onion soup, fish n chips and lemon tart...😋😛‼️ it was worth my decision to dine here. This place defines professionalism & team work. Bussers were on top of their game. All chairs/ banquettes were sanitized at reset. Prompt service. It starts from the top‼️ Kudos to staff n management. Success belongs to you! Def will go back 😀👍👌

I took my wife and kids for Mother's Day Brunch and it was fantastic as always!. Service was perfect and the food was amazing. Prices are a little higher than your average NYC brunch, but totally worth it given the atmosphere and service.

This was a classic favorite of mine for more than 20 years. Returning after a 5 year hiatus I was seriously disappointed to find that it had lost all it’s charm. It no longer has a hint of a Parisian cafe - which it once did. Gone are the wait staff’s white shirts & black ties tucked neatly in long white aprons - replaced with black tee shirts and assorted head gear. The cuisine was marginal & had no connection to what was once fine bistro fare.

We each enjoyed out meals. We each enjoyed our wine/beer choices.
However, while I thought the "baby kale caesar salad with chicken" looked pretty arranged like a skinny round tower on the plate, it seemed kind of skimpy - and the roasted chicken piece was just plopped on an adjacent, empty section of the plate.
The macaroni the warm chocolate sauce was delicious; the praline almonds very disappointing. The lemon meringue tart was delectable. The ice cream sandwich was only so-so. I am used to a better culinary experience at Cafe Luxembourg!

I had not been here for over a year, and the outdoor arrangement was wonderful - including heat lamps above the tables. I thought the food was not up to its usual standards (the lardons in the frisee salad were very undercooked) but otherwise it was great to be back.

SERVICE SERVICE SERVICE! Was so happy to find service at the gold standard which I'm not finding very often post-covid. Someone has trained a staff and everything was as it should be. Food was excellent, no issues with making small changes, they really accommodated us in every way they could. Happy.
