    Everything about Cafe Lux was always good but has gotten even better. The food is unusually good. The service was impeccable. It’s simple bistro food done really well — like they’ve been doing it for 40 years only better. The perfect way to start the weekend.

    The food is way improved from 6 months ago. Our server was great. But, with a doubled restaurant capacity thanks to an enormous outdoor shed, there are only 2 toilets. That’s not enough and probably not even to code. Add fancy Porto-potties or carve 2 more stalls somewhere.

    Great food and service. Never felt rushed, although it was busy. Food was great. Quality and quantity. Great variety of foodie vs. standard brunch fare. Only negative was they need more bathrooms.

    So glad I found my way back to this wonderful French-inspired restaurant. The food was superb - something as simple as broccolini sauted in garlic was done perfectly, and the Atlantic cod with creamed Swiss chard, roasted garlic and Truffle Beurre Blanc was insanely delicious, though richer than my usual fare. But it was great to indulge! And the staff - so smart and helpful and ingratiating from host Jimmy to our server Morgan. (Full disclosure: we're theater folk, and of course we connected with a staff that has a theater background. Of course.)

    Always look forward to dining here. It’s quite loud and inevitable that you’ll hear more of your neighbors’ conversation than you’d wish. And, if they have no regard for their own loudness, you just have to bear up. Generally the food is reliably good ( we had an extremely dry ice cream sandwich for dessert) and the service is very good.

    The salmon and cod were both excellent, perfectly prepared and served. The service was attentive and pleasant. I had a coat hanging on the coat rack inside. Someone put a wine holder (cooler)with ice was directly beneath the rack on a bench. The arm of my coat was drenched when I took it down. You may want to not put wine coolers there! Otherwise, an excellent dinner!

    Thanksgiving dinner at Luxembourg was a great choice. Though busy, service was very good, the holiday menu provided a range of choices in addition to turkey, and the food was very good. I hadn't been to a restaurant for Thanksgiving in decades, and was so pleased, I would definitely go back to Luxembourg for a holiday meal.

    The service was excellent. The food was good. The steak was cooked correctly but for 48 bucks was not particularly good. Not melt in your mouth. Chocolate lava cake? C'mon man. Need to put more creativity into the menu.

    Cafe Lux is the restaurant that saw us through the pandemic and continues to be our go-to place. The servers are always so lovely as are any staff we interact with. The food is never disappointing. We just can’t say enough good things about our long-time favorite. And most recently they provided hand warmers and Mylar blankets to us in case we got too cold. Five star everything.

    We are in the outside space, cozy, sometimes noisy. Our server was attentive. The food visually presented well and came out on time. However, the French onion soup was bland, the wine had sediment in it, my fries were all small broken pieces. It’s a 3 - 3.5 for us, especially when we had a large bill for 2.

    Cafe Luxembourg has established itself as one of the crown jewels in this neighborhood, and it lives up to its reputation. Outdoor dining sheds -- with heating lamps and sliding doors -- have doubled the capacity.
