    Outstanding, brilliant host and great food at great prices. So close to Leaden-hall market so great to go for a beer before and then some lunch/dinner afterwards. Couldn’t recommend this place anymore if I could!!

    This has been such a City institution for many years, and I can see why. The food is reliably good and the place definitely has that French bistro vibe, overlooking the Leadenhall market. It was literally rammed to the rafters with men in uniform light blue shirts, so noise levels were really high and the service was rushed off their feet to try and get everyone taken care of. Will go somewhere a bit quieter in the future.

    Manageress no interest in providing any form of service. She threw my gravy covered spoon on my suit when clearing the plates and couldn’t even manage an apology.

    The noise levels are exceptionally high at this establishment so not ideal for a private dining experience or if you do not fancy shouting to be heard by your companions. Services is great in terms of getting orders taken and food on the table - payment of the bill is less attentive.

    Leadenhall market is absolutely beautiful and Luc’s match it perfectly as a bistro style french restaurant but I have to say the food doesn’t match it. Being a part time food writer, occasionally as a critic and regular travel around the world for tasting, cooking with chefs etc… I don’t think I can come back again. This lunch has complete ruin my love for Toulouse sausage and escargot. What a shame.

    Been waiting to go back to "our place" for a while. Whilst the staff were superb. The food really let them down. The staff explained they had a very busy lunch service so some things were not available. The Pate was outstanding ... but the potato rosti was rock hard, double fried, fully of fat & yet stone cold.... and no one questioned why it was not eaten. The Confit of Duck my husband's favourite lacked flavour and was bland. With a menu that small I would expect everything to be done to the highest level. We will go back once again, everyone can have an off night... but maybe not on a Thursday evening!!

    Had an early table (12.15) before the lunch rush, which was great from a service and noise perspective. However, the restaurant filled up by 1 and whilst the service was still good, the noise levels were very loud, making it difficult to have a comfortable conversation across the table. Food-wise, some of the dishes had too much butter, but overall no complaints. I would go back.

    Always great to eat at Luc's - not that I've had too much opportunity of late - the view into Leadenhall Market alone is worth paying for. Food was the usual French fare but no less enjoyable for all that. Waitresses were somewhat over keen as we seemed to have 2 attending our table who turned up like buses with the same questions 30 seconds apart but better too many than too few! Nice buzzy atmosphere - great to see the City filling up again.

    It's been a while since I've eaten at Luc's but I'm happy to say their previous standards are very much the go forward as well. Really tight ship, excellent French cuisine and polite, friendly and quick service. If you want a quite lunch environment with lots of space around you, then Luc's is not for you. But for a true reflection of what a traditional French (busy) brasserie looks and feels like, then Luc's is great. Keep up the good work!!

    A Thursday night unfortunately coincided with a loud corporate party and an even louder table of four drunk men. Lovely waitress but mediocre food. Starter was good but the fish cake for main course was really bad. It had very little fish and was mostly potato and not even hot. Very disappointing. Dessert of tartin aux pommes very good though. Wont be going back
