Arrived fairly early for dinner and were seated within 10 minutes. All of our meals were very good and were a perfect portion size. I had never had polenta before and it was very good. Service was very good and food came out quickly. When we were leaving around 6:30 pm on Friday the waiting area was jam packed so... More

Visited here tonight and was thoroughly impressed on all accounts. We arrived around 830pm and only waited 5 mins to be seated. We were given a nice comfortable booth in the main area which was great. The service was impeccable by our wonderful waitress Melody. She was very friendly, efficient and saw to our every need. The food was delicious;... More

Whenever my wife and I are downtown Chicago we always go out to brunch at the Grand Lux. The entire experience is always wonderful. We always enjoy good service and great food. The only down side to Grand Lux Cafe is that it can be extremely busy. You can attempt to have your hotel concierge call ahead but often times... More

This restaurant was highly rated and compared to one of my Fav's, Cheesecake Factory, so we absolutely had to try before leaving Chicago. We went for lunch before we left the city and it was literally one block away from our hotel in a great location. I absolutely loved the atmosphere the colors, the multilevel building with the escalator and... More

I'd seen this restaurant mentioned a few times on Trip Advisor as being pretty good, so thought I'd try it out...... and I had such a good meal. It was packed out on my arrival so I had to wait for a table for 10-15 minutes but I was put at the bar, which suited me ;-) and given a... More

I had Sunday brunch here while in Chicago for a girls weekend-it was fabulous. I had the red velvet pancakes which are so good-no syrup was needed (even though it was offered). One of the ladies in our group loves Eggs Benedict & orders everytime we go to breakfast. She was happy to report the sauce was homemade & not... More

Dinner was wonderful but the desert, a chocolate molten cake, was mouthwatering. Decor is very interesting with a good second story view of the street

This is my third time going to Grand Lux. I love the food, and dessert! This time, was a little disappointed in the wait, not that I don't expect to wait but they told us an hour to an hour and 20 minutes and it was 2 hours before we got a table. If we had known 2 hours we... More
