Cozy atmosphere and friendly staff. Welcoming, warm, casual yet traditional French stylish feel. Consistently reliable quality. Mussels are tasty. A genuine taste of France in Ridgefield, CT.

The waitstaff are knowledgeable and impressive. The mussels are amazing and their salmon is incredible! This is my wife's favorite place to eat! We come time and again!

Still one of the best!! I love the food, service and atmosphere. A little too pricey to take the children. Duck, steak, escargot, French onion soup all excellent.

We visited Luc's for dinner, and though it was a Monday night, the place was nearly full. The staff were obviously working very hard, but maintained an air of cheerful efficiency. We had hoped to be seated outside, but the only open tables were inside,...More
