Great Food, Great Decor, and Great View!

Upon entering, we immediately noticed the decor--artsy yet welcoming. The menu is similar to what you will see from Cheesecake Factory (because they are owned by the same company!). We specially love their chicken pot pie (if you like, order it first because it takes time to make). And, don't... read more

We loved the escalator ride up to the dining room. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful in deciphering the extensive menu. The food was good, but not memorable. Our booth was cozy and the volume of talk around us allowed us to hear each other easily.

This place is amazing. The food is great. The service is great. Top notch place to eat. The menu has a lot of choices and the room and atmosphere overlooking Michigan Avenue is the table you want.

Had a server that I never knew his name , never welcomed me to the place and was too busy texting on his phone at his station to pay attention to my table. Food was and is always good and large portions. Decent drinks from the bar and don't have to wait long for food. Just a shame they can't... More

My family had the dinner at this and the food was delicious. Crab cakes were delicious. Ham burger was yummy. It was a busy place and the service was not prompt. Also they delivered one dish at a time instead of bringing food for everyone at once.

My friend suggested we eat here because "the architecture is stunning and the food wonderful." She was correct on both points. When you see the word cafe, you think smaller venue and the Grand Luxe is definitely not small but you don't get lost in the size of the restaurant. The menu is extremely varied - I can't imagine not... More

Went for date night and the experience couldn't have been better. The food was amazing, try the buffalo chicken rolls, and the waitress Meagan was awesome! Pricing was reasonable for downtown and ending the meal with a fresh baked desert was the icing on the cake.

I was part of a large group (22) that dined at the Lux. The service was great. The wine selection good and affordable. The menu is awesome. For me it came down to 2 items that were highly recommended - the Sunday Night Pasta or the bbq ribs. I chose the ribs which were advertised to be falling off the... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
