    Cramped in with a table for 8 next to us and a loud female party of 5 behind us, and an older gentleman with a walker squeezing by. Very tight quarters but food and service up to standards. It seems as if the portions, (steak frites) and the salmon are getting smaller and more expensive. The steak was about 5 ounces and half inch thick. The Moscow Mule was served in a narrow glass instead of a usual copper mug. Profiteroles for desert were the highlight.

    Server was aware that it was my friends birthday (as entered in my reservation) and wished her a happy birthday which was nice. I’m sure if we’d ordered a dessert they would have put a candle in it or something

    First time diner. Onion soup was absolutley delicious. Steak tartar was good, frisee and toast points were great. Presentation on all was well done. Wasn't really excited by the creme brulee. Service was outstanding from greeting upon arrival to tableside where our tremendous server was on point.

    A classic French bistro it hasn't changed much in years. Which is good. I had the French onion soup, very good, and full of flavor. The duck confit was served with a white bean stew, which perfectly complimented the duck. And they had sticky toffee pudding on the dessert menu, a dish hard to come by in New York,and very English, not French at all. It a a favorite and they did it well. The service was friendly and professional..really top notch. We will be back

    Rubbish food. Overpriced and inadequate. Really appalling. Kale salad turned out to be a small handful of spinach in a bowl. Added the salmon, which was a tiny skinny piece of bad tasting salmon that had been deep fried. Was swimming in grease on the plate alongside the handful or raw spinach. Vile.

    I've been coming to Cafe Luxembourg for years and always give it a stellar review. I'm still giving it 4 stars but there is something lacking post covid. I understand the need to turn over tables, but at breakfast when the place is half empty, why must you have the bus boys hovering over the restaurant, walking here there and everything, ready to pounce like a vulture, on every plate that appears to be empty. (And those that still have a few morsels on them, the patron is asked, "Are you still working on that?") I come to Cafe Luxembourg for the food, especially the French Toast at Breakfast but also for the ambiance. I don't come to be rushed out the door as soon as I look like I have finished my meal, and I certainly don't come to be asked if I am still "working on my meal." I come to dine, to enjoy, to flirt with my companion. I don't come to WORK for that is done Monday-Friday at my office. I will still come, but 86 those bus boys. If not, yes I'll still come, but less frequently.

    The perfect Sunday brunch to start our week in New York. There was something for everyone including our vegetarian and our keto eater. Our server was very attentive and friendly. Tables are very close together and noise a bit high, but that’s part of being in the city.
