Love Luc's - been going there for years. Excellent staff, service and food - consistently!!! The atmosphere is welcoming (always); lovely to sit on the patio on a spring or summer's evening or inside in the cozy dining area on those winter nights. Pair your experience with a night at the Ridgefield Playhouse for a wonderful experience.

From the minute you enter Luc's you are welcomed by friendly staff and transported to a bistro in Paris. This lower level restaurant is warm, friendly, and relaxing. We had smoked salmon and tuna tartare as starters, and both were excellent. Instead of a mashed tuna tartare, Luc's is diced tuna, with an exquisite presentation and taste. The duck confit and roast chicken were likewise very good. The Apple Upside Down Cake was a delightful ending to our dinner. The waitstaff were a great addition to the evening.

Some of my favorite dishes are the steak frites with gorgonzola sauce, foie gras "mousse", croque madame, but everything I've had is delicious! The atmosphere is great! You feel like you are at a quaint, countryside French bistro.
Love it!

A favorite place for its authenticity...French , tasty,simple well cooked food, good French wines served by well trained waiters. A pleasurable place to take time to enjoy and relax.In warm weather an umbrella shaded patio with tables is a good meeting place for drinks, and a cosey bar inside in winter. A really good eating place...a pleasurable experience, including the bill.

We have been to Luc's many times and we always return because of the decor and feel of the restaurant; not because of the food. Let me explain.

First, Luc's is located off the beaten path and is in the basement of an old structure. There are incredible stone walls, wood beams and when you are at Luc's, it feels as though you are in a quaint cafe in Paris. There is no place with a better feel/vibe.

The food on the other hand is just ok. At time, we have had very good meals, other times, not so good. Even the Steak and Frittes is so unpredictable. At times, the steak is tender, other times, as tough as leather.

Lastly, the service is more typical of what you would find in Paris, not always as welcoming as we would like.

Nonetheless, we will return with the hopes that the food rival the feel of the restaurant.
