Very pleasant place

We had breakfast on a sunny Sunday. It was very nice to dine outside. My wife had pancakes which were good and I had eggs Benedict which was very good. The service was very good and prompt. Reasonable prices.

The calamari in jalapeno/chili sauce was really good -- and I don't even like calamari! Restaurant was quiet; the waiter didn't hover over us; and it wasn't priced too bad for a downtown restaurant.

We were staying in the area and the concierge at the Waldorf Astoria recommended Luxbar for easy eats. We went 2 days in a row for brunch and it was great. Great drinks, solid food (breakfast hash and burger were amazing) and fun ambiance. Only thing that could have used an improvement was the hostess' attitude, otherwise a great spot!

My boyfriend and I stayed in Chicago for a week at the Thompson Center Hotel and since Luxbar was directly across the street we gave it a try. I had researched restaurants before our trip and saw that the Pub menu (which I now can't find online)was fairly reasonable cost-wise given the location (Gold Coast area near Michigan Avenue). I...

We've now been to LuxBar three times. The first time we felt maybe the place had potential which is why we went back a second time only for us to have a bad experience which is why it's been 5 months since our last visit. This time we went for lunch and sat out as it was a gorgeous summer... More

We stopped in last February for a quick lunch before leaving the city. Our server was friendly and efficient and we enjoyed our meals. Will return when in the area again.

For someone who's a "lightweight", I ended up in this bar twice in one day! First time was for a mid-afternoon glass of wine with my friend, a native Chicagoan, who becomes a tourist in her own city whenever I visit...very nice bar menu (food and drinks) and the bar staff is friendly and extremely knowledgable...we left with quite an...

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
