Chez Lucienne

We welcome you to Chez Lucienne bistro, the first authentic restaurant in Harlem where you will find signature French Classics with a touch of Provence. The front bar is perfect for cocktails before dinner where patrons will mingle like good friends in an upbeat ambiance. We have an exciting wine list with a fun cocktail program. Join us for mouth watering dishes such as Moules frites made 5 different ways, Bavette a l’echalotte, homemade Sausages, Saumon roti Moutarde grilled to perfection. Chez Lucienne’s dining is convivial with a friendly service and delicious food made with premium ingredients. The décor is warm with brick and mirrored walls, ceiling fans and dimmed romantic lighting, reminiscing of Colonial era. The bistro is in the heart of Harlem with its vibrant energy and history.

"Honestly, my group initially attempted to dine at Red Rooster, simply because it was more well-known. However, due to RR's unavailability on Saturday night, we made a reservation next door at Chez Lucienne instead. So glad we did! A few people in our group were Vegetarians, so there were ample delicious options of veg and non-veg menu items. The waiters were extremely personable, as they entertained us with brief French lessons. The lobster ravioli was the best I've ever had. Will definitely come back!"

"The decor was more casual than anticipated, but that was not a problem at all. Very good food, well prepared. My wife's salmon was outstanding and my French onion soup was very good as was the lobster ravioli. My wife's salad was disappointing - just a lot of lettuce. However, the prix fixe menu was a good deal at $25.95 per person; the service was very pleasant and reasonably attentive; and they got us in and out in plenty of time for our show at The Apollo. We will remember Chez Lucienne warmly and would happily consider dining there again for another event in he area."

"Chez Lucienne is the sort of place you should always have in your go-to list. Reliable French bistro classics--escargot, moules frites, steak frites--served with a friendly neighborhood feel in Harlem. The restaurant is always busy, but not insanely so and the prices are very wallet-friendly for NYC.
During our last visit, we ordered merguez and escargot as appetizers and both were very good. My main was a pan-seared trout with a lemon-butter sauce that was dynamite! Solid wine list with many bottles under $50.
A reliable standby in terms of food and service. Highly recommended."

"Have loved Chez Lucienne ever since moving to Harlem three years ago. It has an unpretentious, cozy vibe and delicious, French food. This time around it was a bit loud, but people were celebrating different occasions, so maybe that's why. The service was great - the waiters attentive and food served in a timely manner. One of the main reasons why Chez Lucienne is so great is that the food never disappoints, and I see it as more of place to go for great French "comfort" food. The food reminds me of being in France, and it's always an enjoyable experience to go."

"The food was good but the service was not. It wasn't crowded but it took a long time for the waitress to take our order and check in on us throughout the meal."

"We will never return to this restaurant. After dining at the smallest table we have ever experienced along with some of the most terrible food, the busperson started to give my coat to the woman at the table next to us. Unbelievable from beginning to end, terrible. We dined here to support our local neighborhood restaurant on Valentine's day and reserved for the $59.50 per person prix fixe. We own a seasonal restaurant on Cape Cod, so we are both chefs and have also lived in Paris in the winter. This was among one of the most awful meals that we have ever experienced, from the watery lobster "bisque", to a soggy, milk-laden "puff-pastry" with overcooked seafood, to the tasteless and overcooked snapper, and a sugary strawberry dessert of some kind that was inedible. Very disappointing."

"The restaurant was hardly busy. Not even half of it was occupied. Yet we still waited over 45 minutes for food that was never put in with no explanation and each server looking to pass the blame to their coworker for who would come over and deliver the bad news. There didn't even seem to be a manager in sight. So after waiting and still being hungry we left and went over to Corner Social where we were seated, our order was taken and we received all of our food in half the time. I don't think I'll be visiting Chez Lucienne again but the place could still use some proper staff training on the basics of following up and accountability."
