The atmosphere and food really transports you to France for just a while. The dishes are slightly adjusted to American tastes but authentic enough. As an example the salade Nicoise really should be made with canned/jarred tuna but here it is made with seared rare tuna. Super delicious but I don't think I've ever seen that called a Nicoise in...

Good French cuisine, very crowded and loud. Suggest reservations. Very small bar area so there is little room to wait.

All of the food is wonderful and you really can't go wrong with anything you choose. A wonderful, cozy restaurant with a great wine selection. This place is romantic, yet also suitable for a friendly or family meal. Great bar and seasonable outside seating.

Nice cozy Bistro. Very friendly owner. Good service. However, the food falls short in every category. This is a French Bistro and you would think they would have nice baguettes, but no ! Just airy bread. The food was either under cooked or lacking taste. We where a party of four and had four different dishes, hangar steak, veal shank,... More

We lived in Paris for 3 years so I had the fortune to eat at a number of great French brassieres. That is why we try to catch dinner at Luc's at least 3-4 times per year. 0n our most recent trip, I had the fish special (delicious). The atmosphere was cozy, as always, but you have to like being...

Really best in warm weather, when the doors are open between the bar and the patio, actu cozy and open simul. BUT, in winter move inside for duck, where even the old walls are warm. French cooking, ex wines. Very congenial, and evid. KRichards top spot.

Went back twice in one week to Luc's for lunch - and I had two delicious meals. The menu is typical French bistro. I selected different dishes from the menu - and everything was wonderful. Their escargot were better than those I have had in Paris and try the steak frites. You won't be disappointed;

We have been going to Luc's since it opened in 2001. Every time we go something on the menu surprises us. Lunch or dinner, Harve makes the place interesting and the food is "off the charts." I travel all over the world, and Lic's is the one place i can always count for a superb meal. We just went for... More
