The restaurant should be called The Average Lux Cafe. There is nothing that sets this restaurant apart from other restaurants except the excessive use of marble for the interior finishes. My dining experience began with a hostess who was clueless about the menu or what the restaurant specialized in. I eat at Cheesecake Factory quite frequently and I was expecting an upscale Cheesecake Factory. I did not find this to be an upscale restaurant other than you have to pre-order your desserts because they take 30 minutes to prepare. Upscale begins with excellent service and quality food, not just deserts that take a long time to bring to the table. The manager was very friendly and the food and service were ok, however, there was nothing that made me want to return with a date or bring a group here for a special occasion. It was just average food and service, and heavy on the marble interior finishes. The salads are actually better at the Cheesecake Factory.

While the restaurant is beautiful the nose level makes across table conversation difficult. The wait staff was pleasant but rushed. One meal came out improperly cooked (really raw salmon), she took it back to the kitchen. When presented without apology it clearly was the same fish reheated and covered in sauce.
Dessert was excellent and worth the extra 25 minute wait.

If you want to have premium American food you should try Grand Lux Cafe. They have a large selection of burgers, sandwiches, starters etc.
They serve everything with a nice speed. A good shopping lunch place.

It's a bit more upscale from the Cheesecake Factory. And the menu more refined. After a long day shopping it was relaxing to sit back and enjoy a strong margarita. We enjoyed the food, every was delicious. The staff was very attentive. We enjoyed it more than Cheesecake Factory.

I go to this restaurant at least twice a month. The food is ALWAYS delicious! The service is awesome and the menu is vast! Anytime I have an out of town guest I take them to Grand Lux and everyone is always pleased.
