“Perfect steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

It is so refreshing to go out for steak and actually have it cooked for you exactly how you like it. We have been to other restaurants paid at least the same price if not more - had a worse cut of meat and not had it cooked to the way requested. Our family of 4 (my husband and I along with our 2 teenage daugthers) were at Luxe on Saturday November 17 and had a fantastic meal. Everyone's meal was cooked exactly as ordered. We enjoyed everything about our experience at this restaurant. The amtosphere was wonderful, our waiter was knowledgable and attentive-it was a great night out.

“Will be going back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I Ordered Beef bourgignon and my husband ordered a 14 oz steak. Both entrees were superb. The appetizer Bruchetta was delicious. We enjoyed the friendly, attentive and prompt service. The soft new age music was wonderful as well as the modern decor and ambiance.
They also have a great list of martinis - caramel apple is my favourite and a nice wine selection too.

Had lunch with some friends at a window table. Nice to people watch in a different city and this being located right in the market! Food was great and the service superb!

“Fine dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This fabulous little restaurant in the heart of the Byward is a must eat-at location if you're looking for something a little more upscale. The service is impeccable, the ambiance just lovely and the food is beyond the beyond.
