Dining at LUC is consistently good. Our experience has been that the service can be up and down. For the cost of a meal and the level of dining, it ought to be outstanding all the time - and it isn't. I didn't feel that the most recent dinner there was a great value. Very pricey!

Very nice service and a good bottle of wine. Food was clumsily prepared at best however: rabbit seriously dry and tough, salad Lyonnaise not particularly well washed, inadequate dressing and plated in a lazy way. Halibut overcooked. Shame, I really wanted to like this...

Went to Luc as a special birthday treat for my wife’s birthday. They accommodated the eight of us quite easily. We enjoyed the food and restaurant setting. Definitely recommend...

Everything was great. Happy hour prices were excellent! We were outside,so I can’t say what noise level was like inside. Outside there were just a few honking cars.

There once was a similar French Bistro, Cassis, on 10th that served a very French dish, calved liver and onions with pommels frites. Luv needs to serve this delicacy.

The croque madam for breakfast was outstanding -
And we keep going back to Luc for Zoe’s best bacon (only place I’ve found it in Seattle) and cappuccino. The vegetable hash unbeatable. Service awesome.

Excellent brunch food so I would try it again, but the service on our visit was very slow and the restaurant was only 3/4 full. I would expect more attentive service for the price point.

LUC is our go to restaurant. We love it. It will be a sad day when either it closes or we leave the area. Food is always great, the staff are efficient (and more importantly, friendly, informed, and pleasant), the environment is comfortable - love eating on the patio.

We had not eaten at LUC for a few years, and we were very pleased with our evening there. The food, wine, and service was excellent. It was a reminder that we have a great French bistro not far from our home.

We ordered the smoked halibut omelette with vegetable/potato hash and the eggs benedict with the same hash from the brunch menu, plus Bloody Marys. Everything was absolutely delicious. The only negatives: The omelette was a bit too salty -- individuals should be able to add their own extra salt if desired -- and the edges of the toast and ham on the eggs benedict were charred -- crispy is good, burnt is not. Both were very good, they just needed to be moderated a bit. The hash was uniquely outstanding, as were the drinks and service. We will definitely go back!

The menu at Luc is amazing, ever dish is executed to perfection. As you would expect it to be with Chef Thierry Rautureau at the helm. Google him. The fact that we had Easter brunch for $18 a plate is a head shaker. Ridiculously inconvenient (unless you live in the neighborhood), be prepared to Uber or park who knows where BUT! It's still worth it. Always a meal to remember. There was a misprint on the online menu and they brought us their delicious beignets as an apology. And no, we were NOT those people who demanded anything. I would make recommendations on the menu but there's not anything I wouldn't recommend.
