Grand Lux always does a great job and we always make sure to get breakfast at least once while we're in Chicago. Typically it's on a Sunday morning for brunch. This place does everything right and it can be BUSY around noon. If you can get there earlier around 10-11am it's usually easier for bigger groups of 4-6 people. If... More

We went there on a busy Friday evening. Our wait was short and out table was wonderful, in the little round room with windows viewing the street so we could people watch. I ordered the chicken angeli...wonderfully delicious and my husband ordered the chicken potpie which was equally delicious. You might not find the place because it is on the... More

Grand Lux has the feel of Cheesecake Factory but the menu choices are better and the food is excellent. It was our best meal of the trip. They seriously need to fix their greasy, slick floors though. You have to shuffle your feet to walk so you don't fall. If you are willing to pay for a reservation then they... More

I have never had a bad meal at the Lux and that's what keeps me coming back year after year. We actually planned our trip around this restaurant so we would be able to have the Brioche French Toast, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Next year, I will leave Toronto on Friday so I can eat... More

Went here for dinner after a long day. We originally were going to go somewhere else, but couldn't find the other restaurant. So, we ended up here, which we had originally talked about. We arrived around 6:30pm and there was only a few minutes wait. We were all happy with our entree orders and even more pleased with dessert! The... More

I was craving for their veggie burger...but after I ordered the burger the wait staff came back and told me they were out! Plus we waited for over 30 minutes for a table and once sat we looked around and there were open tables everywhere and could not figure out why the wait...unless they were under staff!

If it looks like a cheesecake factory to you when you walk in, know you're not the only one that thinks that. I'm assuming it's a branch of the company. The menu us absolutely awesome though. The food is fantastic. Our server was very engaging. The entrance was hard to find at first, but we figured out quickly that there... More

The food was excellent. I had the pierogies and my wife had the spicy carnitas. The service was average at best and we were served an out of date beer. That said, we would return for the food.
