Luc is a French-American café and bar named after the owner Thierry Rautureau's father, Luc Rautureau.

Located at the intersection of Madison Street and 28th Avenue in the heart of Seattle's Madison Valley, Luc is a neighborhood spot with heartwarming food, fresh cocktails and a well-selected wine list including our own blend, Luc.

Family brunch was fantastic at Luc. Everything we had always great but we especially loved the smoke black code and spinach omelet (instead of smoked salmon as they didn’t have salmon).

Luc is great! My daughter and I had brunch there on a Saturday. The decor is quaint and comfortable. The food is priced very well and the portions are big. Both of us took food home. Parking isn’t too bad. Definitely better than downtown. I’ll definitely go back for dinner soon.

The Food was far better than the menu suggested. Restaurant is way too noisy. wine s are obscure and very expensive for modest quality.

Luc is our go-to restaurant for any celebration. The food is sublime and the service never disappoints. Your wait staff is exceptional and always willing to accommodate special requests. Luc is not in our neighborhood but well worth the drive in from West Seattle and Bellevue. After 10 years it is still in our top 3 places to enjoy an evening out with friends and family in Seattle.

Always delicious and under the radar for brunch because the Farmer's Breakfast is the best breakfast in town in my eyes.

Went to Luc after it was recommended by a friend of my wife. Food was fantastic, and my wife said it was as good as some Michelin Star restaurants she has been to.

Luc is consistently one of the best restaurants in Seattle. They do a small number of things and do them very well. The food is outstanding, and even their carafes of house wine are better than most restaurants offer from the middle of their wine list. Go. Eat. Enjoy.

The weather was nice so we sat out on the patio, which was very pleasant. My friend and I both had the fish of the day, halibut with buerre blanc, lentils and mushrooms, which was delicious. My friend chose the 3 course set meal which included salad and dessert. It was a good deal at $46 and all the courses were very tasty. The chef-owner Terry Rauterau was on site and came out to the patio to check on guests and chat, which was a nice bonus. I highly recommend Luc.

Dining at LUC is consistently good. Our experience has been that the service can be up and down. For the cost of a meal and the level of dining, it ought to be outstanding all the time - and it isn't. I didn't feel that the most recent dinner there was a great value. Very pricey!

Very nice service and a good bottle of wine. Food was clumsily prepared at best however: rabbit seriously dry and tough, salad Lyonnaise not particularly well washed, inadequate dressing and plated in a lazy way. Halibut overcooked. Shame, I really wanted to like this...

The croque madam for breakfast was outstanding -
And we keep going back to Luc for Zoe’s best bacon (only place I’ve found it in Seattle) and cappuccino. The vegetable hash unbeatable. Service awesome.
