    Cafe Luxembourg is always a favorite choice among my friends & family. The mussels last night were over the top amazing. Whatever ya'll do with those tomatoes... it's how I imagine heaven tastes. (Although the fries this time... meh. Not the usual crispy crunchy salty combo I prefer.) Our server Morgan gets 10 stars for outstanding service and her great sense of humor!

    My visit to Cafe Luxembourg was to celebrate a friend's birthday. They made a special effort for her dessert: Happy Birthday delicately written in chocolate syrup and a candle. The food was delicious, as always. We opted to sit outside and the only minor drawback to that is that it's close to a noisy intersection and there are cars passing right next to the outdoor space (plexiglass, not open)- again, minor. We could converse easily.

    I had a festive 50th birthday lunch for my cousin there and we were treated like royalty each and every step of the way! I could not have been more pleased. The food was amazing as always and the service just can't be beat! We started with lovely oysters with the best mignonette sauce ever, steak tartar with crispy pommes frittes and being totally indulgent, their super rich macaroni and cheese! Then to top it all off, we shared the profiteroles (with Happy Birthday elegantly spelled out in dark chocolate on the plate) and a fresh mint ice cream sandwich. It was a meal to remember and I can't wait to go back again! Thank you to the staff for doing such a lovely job.

    Well prepared fish and chips. The dessert, a trifle, was not a traditional trifle, per my British friend so somewhat of a surprise. Overall, a lovely place although a bit hectic.

    Accommodating with respect to table request and 'special occasion' note. Service was attentive and helpful. Outdoor seating is fine unless the people next to you have extremely LOUD voices - which applied in our case.

    It had been perhaps five years since we dined at Cafe Luxembourg. We used to go there a lot when we lived in the city. Now that we live out of town, and with the pandemic, it was longer than we would have liked. We love this place. The service is attentive and they get everything right. We were a party of six and drinks arrived in decent time. The moules-frite are as fresh as can be and perfectly prepared; ditto the steak frite. For the first time I tried the omelet and it was light, fluffy, and again, perfectly cooked. You can do very well with the house wines by the glass...they are well-curated, from the bubbly rose (from Burgundy) to the house Chablis. For dessert we shared the creme brulee, molton chocolate cake, and profiteroles, and were it not for having concert tickets that night, we would have ordered more. Cafe Luxembourg is classic brasserie, and they get everything exactly right.
