    We ordered lobster rolls and unfortunately they were very disappointing. For some reason, and perhaps we did not read the menu carefully, the lobster meat was tossed with salad of cucumber and tomato. The combination was underwhelming. The result was a watery salad and a disservice to the main ingredient.

    Lovely at 5:30 but got too noisy when the place filled up. Service was great when no one was there. Steak seemed small and not as tender as it should be for $40. We had to ask 3 servers to bring our fries. Even $16 fir a glass of wine seems a bit over the top for just a local restaurant.

    Consistently one of the best bistros in NYC. Details are looked after. Crisp linen tablecloths. Proper, professional service. Reservations are respected. And every item on the plate, from quality of lettuce and butter, to the mains, is top shelf. Not inexpensive for sure, but you get what you pay for.

    I couldn't have been more disappointed during my visit to Cafe Luxembourg. The server was indifferent, the food was mediocre, and the management made an unfortunate choice. What should have been a fun outing turned into a certified disaster. Very sad indeed.

    Outdoor lunch at Cafe Luxembourg is one of my favorite things to do. The staff is wonderfully friendly, professional and warm. It's one of my favorite places where I am made to feel at home. Luxemburger, Tuna Burger, Steak tartare, martini, wines by the galls are favorites. Oh and those fries! Best in the city.

    I’ve been coming to Cafe Luxembourg for at least 40 years. There was a time when I knew everyone who worked there and they knew me and my partner. We didn’t even need a reservation or have to ask for a cocktail or drink refill. After my partner died I stopped going for a long time. I no longer know any of the workers and definitely need a reservation but the service and food is still great. The place is still as noisy and crowded as ever but you will Always get a very good meal at Cafe Luxembourg!

    we finished our meal and within a few minutes we were told that someone was waiting for our table and we were asked to pay - this was very disturbing to me. I can understand when a restaurant has turnover or seating times, but we were not in the restaurant for more than an hour when this happened. Though I like eating at the Cafe on occasion, I am not sure I would rush back for a weekend brunch given this situation.

    Service was rushed. Staff repeatedly tried to clear our plates before we were finished. Food came before drinks; we had to remind them what drinks we had ordered. Outdoor dining space was nice, although too crowded for Covid concerns -but overhead fans were nice and kept us cool even on a hot day
