Luc is taking reservations but not open. The website shows open, but no one was there.

The low review is not for service or food. We did not get to experience it. I simply want people to be aware the restaurant is not open for dine-in during covid.

Please call them ahead and check their voice mail. They mention their open status there. The information on open table is inaccurate. We were not the only ones. Others also arrived to find their reservations unfulfilled. Resulting in our date night being a mess.

Hope this helps.

The place was closed when I arrived. Very disappointing. I reached out to OpenTable and they don’t care to respond back; let alone check which restaurants on their apps are really open. Luckily I found a cafe with available table nearby.

The experience was very good like always. They can pay attention more to some details to be perfect. The wine could be served in a separate mini glass with a proper glass for the specific wine. Usually, they are serving the wine in a regular wine glass with wine until the top. Everything else is amazing.

How delicious!!! I have been to Luc before and it was even better than I remembered. With COVID I feel its really important to try to support our local chefs as much as possible so a couple of us decided to visit this past week. They were participating in Restaurant Week and two of us ordered off the special menu and two ordered off the regular. Everything was incredible. Our favorite item was the foie gras, melted in your mouth! To add to a more incredible experience Thierry was there cooking himself and took the time to come over and chat with us. Very special evening. Can't wait to go back!

The food is tasty, not too salted, not over spicy, prepared with elegance (a flower as a decoration on the top of the entree I chose). We really enjoyed everything. The beef bourguignon was delicious, the duck breast was perfectly cooked and the sauce was stunning. The duck confit was delicious too. We appreciated the real freshness of the ingredients. The waiter was very pleasant. And the safe distancing well respected. We had a great dinner. We even had the pleasure to talk with the Chef!

First time back since last fall. Chef Rautureau was in the kitchen, so we knew food would be as it should. Duck confit did not disappoint, and the pheasant special got raves. Martinis similarly earned high marks. Negroni glass was so packed with ice it was nearly impossible to drink; and contained about a thimble-full of actual cocktail. Frustrating. service was embarrassingly remiss: we sat for an unreasonably long time before even being acknowledged by our server, he hastened off before we could order drinks, and left us for long periods, entirely forgot my side order...you get the picture. Perhaps another staff called in sick that evening, but still: not ok. We will of course be back, but this was not what we hoped for on one of our first "Covid outings".

Dinner was delicious. the food is mostly overpriced for what it is. The $140.00 of wine was past its prime and there was cork in the bottle. So, not ideal to serve.

Wonderful meal and great service on Friday 7/24. Chef Thierry Rautureau cooked for us, took the time to talk with us and personally thank us for coming. I loved my meal. I had a grapefruit vodka with elderflower, French 75, app was cherry fennel and burrata salad, and main was duck confit with couscous. Dessert was amazing also. Please go support our local restaurants!! It is clean, spaced out and safe.

I dined in the restaurant for the first time in many months. I felt very safe because restaurant staff and other patrons were practicing social distancing. (I did have a takeout meal from Luc about a month ago, and it was among the best things I had during the entire Covid lockdown.) On this recent dine-in visit, I had the quiche appetizer and beef bourguignon for my main, and my dining companion had the cherry gazpacho and duck confit. All four of our dishes were excellent. Martinis were also very good. Staff was friendly and seemed genuinely appreciative to be receiving guests. This is one of our absolute favorite neighborhood restaurants in Madison Park / Madison Valley; our experience a couple of days ago was -- as usual -- excellent.
