The food is great. I went to Cafe Lux before the summer crowds make it
so busy that the service may suffer.

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.

Ravioli was bland and dry, fish was overcooked, bacon on the burger was grossly undercooked. Fries were tasty though. It will be a while before I'll return.

Fun Covid set-up outdoors with attentive service. Noise level is fairly high (especially if nearby diners are very loud, which we experienced). Food decent and setting was nice.

Cafe Luxembourg has always been one of my go-to restaurants for special occasions, i.e. birthday lunches and dinners. I usually have an egg-white omelette, which is flavorful, and salad, which is well-dressed. Staff is friendly and responsive. Outdoor dining is well-designed, though I look forward to resuming indoor dining when it's safe to do so.

Wine pours are mingy, Outstanding green salad you go early, later they're fatigued. Fish was nicely cooked, fries are exceptional. Omelette resembled a brick. Nice neighborhood option, but NOT a destination. Menu needs refreshing badly.

Very friendly service from the moment we arrived, taken to our table (we sat inside...there are plexiglass dividers between spaced tables),and our waiters who were knowledgeable and they even asked the chef for ingredient in the chicken sandwich. Would definitely come back.

Wonderful to be back to one of our favorite restaurants! Everything was delicious—we had salads, branzino, sweet pea ravioli (amazing!); sticky toffee pudding (just as good as the many samples we had in the UK) and the ever-dependable and much missed Harry’s hot fudge sundae. Great service. A delight in every way.

It was our first indoor restaurant experience in 5 months, that may have chased any potential clouds away. But the steak au Poivre was excellent, the of fries just so, and the service friendly and personal. Couldn't have met our expectations any better.
