Unusually my Bronzino was way over cooked to the point of being dry.

This is the first not good meal I have had here in 35 years.

My guess is the same small kitchen can’t keep up with the very expanded number of tables.

Kinda unfortunate

We have always found this place good for lunch and brunch. Today it was true also. We had a very ice lunch. They do an outstanding omelet. About as opposite as you can get from the typical diner version. To me they are as good as it gets.
They now have a ramp at the entrance. I hope it is permanent as I’m in a wheelchair and getting i

service is nice, food not so much. the nicoise salad had little to do with a nicoise salad, and the croque monsieur had nothing to do with a real croque monsieur.

The ambiance at Cafe Luxembourg is exactly what you’d expect from an elegant neighborhood eatery. It’s a short trip to Luxembourg with it’s German, French and Belgian influences. The wait staff truly wants to serve you and they deliver everything from coffee and tea to delectable lunches, brunches, and dinners with pride in presentation. Love the food, the Frisée salad, eggs Benedict or mussels and frites are all delightful reminders of what it means to dine.

Had a very nice brunch at one of the outside tables. We were not rushed, the service was excellent, and the food was very good. Great place for a brunch on Sunday morning, although it is a bit pricier than other options in the neighborhood. But worth it.

It was nice enough - thought the menu and food was very good, but not extraordinary, especially given the price. We had the French toast (excellent), burger (meat was great quality), and eggs Florentine (had better). Fries were quite tasty. Outside seating was nicely separated. Service (our server) was great.

Food was delicious. The bronzino was delicious but the portion was only 1/2 of the fish and was only served with a side salad. Overpriced for what you got. Chicken was excellent.

My salad was teeny weeny and the bay kale was mostly stems, not much greenery. The "croutons" looked like 2 round potato chips which became crumbs when you tried to get them on your fork. My friends meal was so much better. I have ALWAYS had a good experience except this once. Would recommend and return to this restaurant.
My dessert: ice-cream sandwich was outstanding.

A splendid place. A long-time fixture of the UWS, and deservedly so.
Outdoor brunch with 'the passing parade' is v entertaining.
Costly and worth it.

I hadn't been here in 20+ years yet I had very fond memories of CL as it was the site of my first cream brulee. I was very disappointed with my recent experience--my entire meal tasted like it had been sitting around in the kitchen for hours before being served. I won't be back will be nostalgic to my early visits to CL. Too bad.

Despite NYC's oppressive heat, outdoor eating at Cafe Luxembourg was very enjoyable. The food was as good as the last time I visited, and the noise level was vastly better. Staff gave a warm welcome, ushered me to a comfortable outdoor waiting space with the option to order a drink while waiting, and our waiter was atttentive throughout the meal. The watermelon/tomato gazpacho was just right for the hot evening and the salmon was tasty. We had a good range of choice for wine by the glass. All in all, many reasons to go back again.

Mostly a good experience
Disappointed that the Branzino was not a whole fish but half
It was well prepared but with a small amount of greens I felt the meal was overpriced

Terrific early evening experience seated outdoors. Keeley our server was a delight and our food was prepared fresh and presented well. We enjoyed the yellowfin tuna burger and lobster roll. The side salad and frites that accompanied each plate was plenty. The appetizer of salmon tartare was just ok. The cheesecake was delicious and perfect ending to our meal. The wine selection was terrific. The value was as expected in NYC.
