The Grand Lux Cafe was recommended to us by the valet at our hotel. You could be dressed casual or dressed for a night on the town. I love the atmosphere/decor but it is a bit noisy. We were seated near a large party. The menu is a bit overwhelming and there is A LOT to choose from. Be prepared... More

Highly recommend this place. It is HUGE. The menu is HUGE. I would seriously recommend looking at it before hand so you have an idea on what you want to get before you go there because it’s going to take a while for you to pick anything out of the extensive great sounding menu. We kind of did an appetizer... More

Several people recommended Grand Lux Cafe and I'm so glad we listened and went! What a great meal and experience. The portions are huge (they graciously offer you a carryout container) and the beignets are exquisite. I mean absolutely exquisite. Service is unhurried even when they're busy - my only criticism is that it's noisy. Every surface is stone or... More

My wife and I love the Grand Lux for the huge dinner portions and amazing desserts. You have to try the beignets! And ask for a window seat overlooking Michigan Ave! Beautiful, romantic, and will give you a reason to walk (at least) a magnificent mile!

I've been here multiple times and will be back in the future. The portions are big (really big), the decor is pleasing (think and upscale version of The Cheesecake Factory - not surprising, given that they're owned by the same company), and the food is always good (haven't had a life changing meal here, but that has never been my...

The food was soooo good and tasty I went two days in a row to have lunch. The dessert was the best. The service was fast, they really took care of us. The place is very beautiful and you have a good view for people watching.

I was blown away by the food and service at the Grand Lux Cafe. It is a really beautiful restaurant with amazing views. I had the Eggs Benedict and they had house made hollandaise sauce. It was absolutely divine. This was moderately priced first rate brunch fare.

When we first stepped into this restaurant, the decoration was beautiful, great view over the Magnificent Mile. The air conditioning was too strong but we enjoyed our food anyway. Lots of choices and the plates are average size and prices are good. Good hot bread!! I would recommend this restaurant.

Went there for the brunch buffet on Sunday, even before opening at 9am there was a queue which was quickly seated. The pancakes, AMAZING, defeinitely for you if you like pancake, but no matter what the menu offers enough to choose from at a very reasonable price. Try to get a window seating. I am sure everyone will enjoy this... More
