Large, casual dining without much flavor – The Grand Lux Cafe at the Beverly Center complex is pretty good but most of the dishes really don't have that much flavor. I've been maybe 3 or 4 times and have yet to find anything great. Portions are large and the deserts rule, so go because you're just plain hungry or because you need to satisfy that sweet tooth, but don't go when you're looking for something delicious. It's just not here.
A sure bet! – This place is always on the list of dinner possiblities. I'm a regular and I still haven't gotten halfway through the menu. They have huge portions and a wide variety of food. The atmosphere is adult, but not too stuffy. It's the kind of place that you might see a celeb, but it's not just some trendy place-to-be-seen. Go to enjoy the food, but don't forget to buy some fresh baked chocolate chip cookies to go!
great menu, big portions – "Everytime I go to Grand Lux, I get something different, and it's always awesome. The portions are generous, and you leave full and satisfied. The soutwest flatbread sandwich is amazing, as is the Max burger. Great martini selection too."
Grand Lux Not so Grand – Went to the Gand Lux In LA after church on sunday , really didn't have a good experience , when we were seated we waited over 20 minutes for our drinks and even longer for our late breakfeast. The waitress wasn't professional (maybe it was my body wash ) I had a better experience at the Grand Lux in Las Vegas there the food was awesome and the servers were very friendly. I will Give Grand Lux in LA one more shot , maybe for dinner this time & a different server
Thanks to my dad... – I wouldn't have known about this place. He used to be the kitchen manager here so I came here A LOT .... but the food is AWESOME. It's my favorite restaurant to date, because you can't beat their warm crusted apple pie and pastas! Its sister is Cheesecake Factory, but Grand Lux has a more romantic setting, better food selections, and they're awesome when it comes to group dining. Every now and then, celebrities will drop by so that's always a treat.
Cheesecake Factory with High Ceilings – Yep, Grand Lux is nothing more than Cheesecake Factory with high ceilings and with more bathroom stalls. The pasta choices are so-so just like the recent pasta choices at Cheesecake. The dessert choices though better. They have this molten chocolate cake which was very good and our server mentioned a dessert that was deep fried. Although we did not order the latter, it sounded promising. Oh, before I forget, the bread is the best!
delicious food and desserts – Cheesecake Factory has always had a special place in my heart, and when I first dined at Grand Lux, I was (pleasantly) surprised by their similiarities. I love their beet and goat cheese salad (though I think it might be an acquired taste) and their spaghettini with fresh clams. Their lunch specials are also well worth the price! Though it isn't trademarked for their desserts (like Cheesecake Factory), their creme brulee duo and their roasted pineapple upside down cake is up to their caliber. Also, they offer several of Cheesecake's original cheesecakes as well~ What more could you ask for?
Best dessert's in town – This place is a cant miss everything on the menu is great, try the pasta with chicken in garlic cream sauce and the tomato basil mozzarella pasta ,for appetizer try the buffalo chicken rolls there delicious! TRY not to stuff your self too much with the addictive bread and save room for dessert order the chocolate molten cake and the pineapple upside down cake which both come with vanilla ice cream.The service is great and we have never waited longer then 10 minutes to be seated.Here's a tip we learned the hard way share a order with each other because there huge enough for both of you too eat and take home for later.
Great place to go before you go out. – This place is fun it is at the Beverly Center so you can go there after a day of shopping and eat. At night it gets really crowded so be prepared to wait for an hour and half just to be seated, however you can go to the bar and have some drinks while you wait. One of my favorite dishes there is the salmon dish with a cream sauce. It is really good and my favorite dessert is the Banana Bread Pudding. I never had it so good.
Great Food Great Service – I defintely will visit the place again and again. First, the place is royal palace style. Next, great service. Lastly, the food...gosh~ the lettuce wrap... unbelievable tasty. I would not expect good chinese food ( mainly appetizer) from this place.
