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 The service was average at best and we were served an out of date beer.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.

We ate here based on the recommendation of a family member who lives in the area. We met for 4pm for Saturday dinner. It would be a miracle if you eat here and can't find something you like. This menu offers something for everyone. We all decided to eat burgers. They were big too. Some of us had to get... More

We had a great lunch and a great experience at the Grand Lux cafe. We waited for approximately 10 minutes to get a table overlooking Michigan Avenue (well worth the wait). The service was excellent and we ordered Pierogi's and Potato Spring Rolls. Great choice as they were fresh, hot (from the oven) and tasted amazing. We topped off our... More

Liked the look and feel of the restaurant. Disliked the bad attitude staff, no napkins on the table, and OUTRAGEOUSLY overpriced kids refills! Never had to pay 4.50 per kids refills. Get serious PEOPLE they are kids and it's a non-alcoholic drink!

Excellent place to eat. The portions of food are huge and the menu is extensive. It is a bit pricey but the food is worth it. The interior is excellent but the lighting is very low. The desserts are very large also. I had the Beignet's and they could have fed two people.

I love the Lux café in Chicago. Try to sit in the round room, the view of Michigan Avenue can't be beat. The food is delicious! We even tried the desserts that were out of this world yummy! Homemade carrot cake, blueberry buckle, and choc cheesecake were the best we ever had. Service was great! highly recommend..

Be forewarned, if you go late at night, they will be out of some of the dishes! Arrived there at about 11:40p (they close at 12:30a). We ordered the duck wontons, warm brownie, and banoffee pie. First waiter came back and said no more duck wontons. Ended up getting the Korean ribeye tacos instead (which were quite delish!) Waiter came... More

Great location on Michigan Avenue. We were by the window and had a great view of Michigan Avenue. Portions are very large. You definitely get your moneys worth. The menu had a lot of options. Kids options as well. Our 7 seven year old ate well. They used to have an amazing tuna melt but for some reason took it... More
