What's with your nudity postcards and same "art work" covered chocolate when the check was requested... My guests were not happy as we had a child at our table. I am not sure what is the purpose of that postcard when simple check would do fine without the chocolate and postcard showing nude. I do question if it was even necessary. This restaurant used to be wonderful in everyway but it was dissapointing to bring a long time friends from out of town visiting NY. Both service and food quality can improve for the better.

Been going for a decade, and this place is the best. Great food, great staff, wonderful setting. Totally reliable. It's New York City so there's no cheap way out, but if you want a perfect restaurant experience, Cafe Luxembourg delivers it every night of the week. And the drinks are amazing too.

I've been coming here at least a few times a month for the last 5 years since I moved to the neighborhood - this is one of the best places in the upper west side. The staff is so friendly and very accommodating -- I've never had an issue with service here - the staff is welcoming and we feel very comfortable here. The food is very good - sometimes a little expensive, but no more than other comparable restaurants in the city. My one complaint is that it gets quite loud in there when busy -- otherwise, this is a solid, consistent restaurant. We'll keep coming back.

To start, Very disappointed with the wines by the glass, very very small pour for $13 a glass (and it wasn't good for a French wine, they should at least get the wine right)! My date got the Calamari... It was Rubbery, very surprising that they did such a lousy job cooking it. My salad was disappointing, ordered the "mixed" greens, but it was basically an all dandelion stem salad. Only redeeming thing about my meal was the burger! I loved it, but my date had the steak, it was just ok, way too fatty for the price. Overall, a disappointment, won't be going back anytime soon.

Been going to this restaurant for many years. Limited menu. These last few visits pointed to that this restaurant was on a downswing. Their Steak Frite was full of gristle and inedible. LAst visit, we ordered a Creamy Polenta with Clams. The Polenta was so salted that my hairs stood on end. The clams were absolutely inedible, hard a rock. My Pasta came out COLD and RAW. It was very disappointing. There Minestrone Soup was out of a can. Worst experience in a restaurant, to expect a decent serving of food and end up with garbage. At least they were gracious enough to take these items off the bill. This is my last visit to an old stand by that has gone the ways of a bad diner.

This used to be my regular Friday, drinks and snacks the bar place. Then one day, after dropping $150, we had had enough wine and just sat there for a few minutes talking. The bartender told us that we had to either order more or leave. That was the last time we went there after work. (They didn't care, I'm sure...they really only want to see celebrities in there.) That said, the food is pretty good...and the breakfast hash browns are one of the best things in the city. Of course, you have to pay $30 for two eggs, bacon, coffee, and tip to get them! (they charge $3 extra for toast...seriously!)

best steak tartar in the city- dare you to challenge me on that. they usually go with mass oysters and they are 100% the best i can come across in this town. the food is always top notch. the service can be spotty on occasion, but this place is as consistent and legitimate as it gets. no item on the menu requires an explanation- it's all delicious.
