I want to retrieve some data from an object to a List according to the ID of the logged in User, so I am trying this soql query

List<Object> = [SELECT Id,Name FROM Object WHERE User_id = : $User.Id];

but it doesn't work for me. So how could I get the logged in user ID ?

The global object for User information inside Apex is actually UserInfo. Try:

List<Object> = [SELECT Id,Name FROM Object WHERE User_id = :UserInfo.getUserId()];
