Dinner with our very good friends. Food and service were very good. Atmosphere was little too quiet. Think this would be great for lunches.

Waitresses were great. They were very attentive without being 'in your face'. No trouble asking for tap water and waitress bought 2 extra side plates when we said we were sharing the starters. Food was good although I didn't feel the goats curd salad starter worked. The wine seemed over priced for what it was, but I guess you are in the heart of the city.

Luc’s is clearly a very popular venue. However, maximising income by placing tables a few inches apart makes for a very difficult place to have any meaningful conversation. The noise level was very high as everyone seemed to compete with everyone else to be heard over the general commotion.

Very prompt service, excellent choice of food and well presented. Might suggest more of a low alcohol drink selection as Becks seemed to be all that was available. Very efficient service. Would recommend

Very atmospheric brasserie restaurant nestled within London's Leadenhall Market. The food here is very good and portion sizes are decent. The main menu makes for a pricey lunch, but there is also a fixed price menu with good options where you'll get change out of £25 for a 3 course meal.

Whilst relatively pricey (if you have half decent wine) it still delivers consistently. A Leadenhall Market/Lloyd's institution.

Extremely unhappy with Luc’s. I booked a table on 2nd January for my 30th birthday, the booking was confirmed and then when we got to the restaurant it was closed. Awful and very disappointing.

Meeting for a family get together, we favoured the City area and Leadenhall is a favourite venue. Luc's just fits into this whole idea - good food, plenty of space, great staff. Just an excellent place to meet up.

The service was good, especially since they were so busy. The waitress was extremely considerate about the special dietary needs of my friend and checked and rechecked that my friend had something suitable without making us feel we were a bother. The restaurant was loud with the Christmas lunch crowd and there are rather a lot of stairs into the restaurant and to the toilets which accounts for the lower stars, but two of the party immediately wanted to book for other occasions.

Food was excellent and very reasonable, the service wasn't bad, my only gripe was their booking system. They, or someone but definitely not me, screwed up the booking and registered us for 13:00 instead of 14:30. My confirmation said 14:30 and the person who called in the morning to confirm the booking said they looked forward to seeing us at 14:30. I didn't appreciate the sarcasm from the staff when we arrived at our correct time that I had made a mistake with the booking, nor the email from them some time after 13:00 reprimanding us - albeit politely - that we hadn't turned up or cancelled!

(Maybe) interestingly, I have ticked the Open Table box for "Neighbourhood Gem". Anybody who works in and around the Lloyd's environment, and who has dined at Luc's will know exactly what I mean. Mo, the Maitre D', and Timi (possibly also the Maitresse D') are marvellous hosts. Regulars are welcomed back; newcomers are given the same degree of welcome and courtesy. It ticks the "Authentic" box from the barman to the chef. I know everyone isn't French, but it's a French restaurant alright. The menu is a comfort for regulars, and a delight for new diners; it changes....just in time, to keep us on our toes. (The recent, seasonal addition of pigeon in the starter menu was very welcome.) Specials cause regulars to take an occasional diversion away from the comprehensive menu. The house wine, as it should be in a proper French Restaurant is excellent and excellent value. Businessmen and women can have a serious or cordial lunch. Non-business people will not feel "out of place", quite the opposite. The occasional "fun lunch" has a perfect venue. It's usually very busy; book a day or two ahead, if you can.

I really love this restaurant - it’s perfect for business lunches.
It’s not cheap but the food is consistently very good indeed.

My only criticism is that the tables are far too small. Lunch on a table for 2 is a real squeeze and you need to keep moving things about to fit them on. I am getting a bit tired of that to be honest as I’m usually there with just one other person - it’s not an issue if there are 4 of you on a larger table for instance.
