This restaurant has an exceptional location on downtown Chicago's Michigan Avenue (sure there's only expensive VALET parking), but GREAT customer service, food & atmosphere!!!!

Had a window seat overlooking Michigan Avenue while enjoying a sumptuous brunch today (Sunday). Started off with a mimosa cocktail and then tried a novel and imaginative item from the brunch menu: combination of sauteed peppers, topped with two eggs garnished with corn chips and avocado. Sort of along the line of Huevos Rancheros, but sooooo much more delicious in... More

For years have come here, as we first moved to the city and we loved exploring and now when we have company from out of town and want to show them the best of Chicago. You have to be prepared to wait. But they do give pagers, and some of you can head to local stores. The menu selection is... More

One of our favorite places we return to year after year at Christmas. This is an adult version of the Cheesecake Factory. We like it better. All the menu items we have tried are great. I especially love the bistro steak with polenta and crisp Brussels sprout leaves in a mushroom sauce. Delicious! Save room for the beignets which you... More

I always love going to the Grand Lux. The energy level is great and everyone from the guests to the wait staff seem to be in a festive mood every time I have been to the Grand Lux. Great American menu, all your familiar favorites with home cooking feel and taste. Very large portions! A bit of a wait but... More

Very good experience from food to service. Very interesting and diverse menu. Big beer, wine and drink menu. Had the crispy chicken and rice and it was gooooood. Great view of the Mile.

The food choices are endless and the desserts are the bomb. Fried Chicken can't be beat. This place is crowded go early. Try their breakfast only if you are very hungry. Suggestion ask for a booth, sometimes they stick you in a row of tables right next to others and if you don't mind eating with strangers that fine, but... More

This cafe is sister to The Cheesecake Factory, and it's very apparent. It's not luxurious as the name suggests, but very plain. The food is mediocre, and the staff is overwhelmed.

Every year we take a trip to the city and have eaten at The Grand Lux for Sunday "brunch". The past two years have been extremely disappointing. Very slow service, no bussing of the tables, drinks took at least 20 minutes. If you don't get there right or soon after it opens you will wait. I feel that the service... More
