We celebrated our first anniversary here and we both loved it. The food was amazing. Staff at the reservation was a bit obnoxious but our server was good.

This was a date night and the atmosphere and food were amazing!! I highly recommend the crab cakes and hummus. I would definitely go back. I will say however the bathrooms were a terrifyingly disgusting mess. Toilet paper and paper towels were all over the ladies room and only one stall had toilet paper in it. My boyfriend said the...

We stopped in based on a concierge recommendation. We were greeted and seated right away - upstairs. Nice decor, comfy seats. Our server was very attentive, helpful and pleasant - answered our questions, made recommendations and followed-up quickly. Our food was very good - we tried the salmon three ways and a steak. All cooked as requested. The mashed potatoes... More

I expected much better service and food than we received. Waited a long time for simple fare and service was lacking. Disappointing experience based on multitude of restaurant choices around Michigan Ave

We had an anniversary dinner here along with my sister and husband. We ate early enough to get a wonderful table by the window overlooking the bright lights of Michigan Ave. (Restaurant is on the second floor.) The food, wine, and service were excellent and the price was a good value for Chicago. I had the filet and some of... More

I was out shopping on North Michigan Ave in Chicago. I always heard good things about this restaurant and decided to try it with a friend. Had great service and it came out quickly. I ordered the Orange chicken, and it was delicious. I was very happy with my choice.

This is a huge restaurant, so crowded it's freaky. I am not waiting one hour for any meal, nor in such a crowd, no matter other reviews.

This is a great place to dine with friends or family. The food is good and view of the Magnificent Mile is nice. They also had plenty of gluten free choices and it was tasty.

We were in Chicago for the weekend so based on recommendations we went here for Brunch on Sunday (Feb 19) - 6 people. The restaurant was packed (50 minute wait) - but we were seated in an orderly fashion. After seating it took about 15 minutes for anyone to wait on us (seemed there was a break time issue) and...

We had a family weekend in Chicago with our 3 and 6 year old children. Grand Lux is the perfect environment to keep the kids entertained and let the adults still have a nice dinner. The BBQ salmon dish was excellent and my wife's shrimp scampi hit the spot. The views of the city are fantastic!

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
