overall it was a good experience ---we had a 40 minute wait that turned into an hour wait and the staff wasn't so great ...but once we got our table the staff, service and food was great! It was worth the wait!

We went here on a whim and were totally floored. Totally not what we expected. I wanted to try something different and decided to go with the Chili-Lime Chicken and Mango Salad. Hands down the best salad I have ever eaten. Carrot cake was amazing. My husband and I split a piece and both of us wished we each had... More

Something for everyone. After a long night of celebrating, 5 very tired women were STARVING. Great choices pleased everyone. Most of us finished our very ample plates. The place was noisy and bustling, but bright and inviting.

The Grand Lux menu is a book in itself! My daughter has lived in Chicago for the last several yrs and it's my go to Restuarant! You can order your "made to order dessert" at the beginning of your order, and it's delivered hot and fresh to your table after your meal! The pastas are to die for, and to... More

Great food, however the lunch portions were a bit small. Cooked my salmon to perfection every time! Girlfriend said the scampi was the best she'd ever had! Pretty good beer selection too.

We were lucky in our timing so that we didn't have to wait for a table by the window overlooking Michigan Avenue. The service was capable and unobtrusive. The greek salad had some soggy-looking greens but the server assured us that this was the normal condition for that salad. The other dishes were well prepared and flavorful. One standout was...

We had quite a long wait for this restaurant but found it to be absolutely worth it. We loved the variety of foods available and their unique take on several otherwise common foods. A bit pricey when taking out the whole family, but when the bill came I still felt the food was worth the total. If you've got some... More

I have been at Grand Lux Cafe in Chicago, Dallas and Las Vegas and this place is worth the price. The place is huge (not cozy at all) and not pretentious, but in general the service is fast and the food very good- If you like fusion meals order the Asian nachos, they are AMAZING, even better if paired with...
