great place to dine – the strawberry lemonade is the best and the red velvet cake and the salad crab, and the cobb and the pasta is the best
and it is a great place for tourists to dine
Many Great Experiences!!! – I have been blown away by the diner menu time and time again. The lunch menu isn?t all that great but the diner menu is to die for! Great prices and quantity of food; the service is always professional and the ambiance fitting. This is also a great place to dress up for a special occasion as well as taking the wife and kids out.
Indeed, Grand! – I didn't expect the restaurant to be so huge! It is very large, yet still gives a comfortable cozy atmosphere at your table. We only had time for a quick dinner here, and I was thoroughly impressed. We had told our waitress how we were in a hurry and our food was out very quickly and was delicious. Huge portions, but delicious. When we were leaving, the wait for a table was TWO hours!! You know the food is good when people wait that long for a table.
Great menu and service at reasonable prices – We love the Grand Luxe Cafe on Michigan Ave. On our first visit we were seated in the patio, and had a great view and a very "airy" feeling. May be worth an extra wait.
The service was great, very friendly and professional, with extra credit to how well our child (1+ year old) was treated and the help we received.
We were a party of four and tried different dishes. Everything was excellent and the overall experience was great. I personally thought the funnel cake with 3 dipping sauces was amazing. I know that's what i'm going to have for desert on our next visit...!
GREAT UNTIL... – Great Until........
This Sunday my dad and children dined at the Grand Lux. Beautiful atmosphere as always. I wanted to introduce my dad to a new restaurant that I had frequented. We both decided to have salad because their vinegarette dressing is the bomb, he decided to have a greek salad with the same dressing. Before midnight I was hovering over the toilet "letting loose" from both ends. Originally I thought it was a small stomach virus, but Tuesday evening I briefly mentioned to my dad about being ill Sunday and Monday. He responded, "Me too!" But the children that ate burgers and fries have not complained of any illness. There was something obviously going on with either the vegetables or the dressing. It is such a shame because as I mentioned earlier I have been there many times before, but I dont think I can return because what if my children would have eaten a salad. I will never be able to ease my mind and enjoy a meal in that restaurant, out of fear from getting sick. Tuesday evening I contacted the manager and he was very apologetic and of course denied that anyone else had called to complain, but kindly stated he would inform the kitchen manager about the issue.
Embelishing Favorite!! – If your seeking a beautiful and enchanting dining experience...Grand Lux Cafe is definetely the place for you.
I am a repeated patrone of this restaurant and everytime i dine i am always adding an additional wonderful comment to my list of already fantastic things to say regarding my visit. Customer service is impeccable, atmosphere is extravagant & down comforter cozy, food always served hot, plentiful and with a smile...absolutely love the blue cheese salad w/ grilled chicken and the fresh baked chocolate chip cookies are outstanding.The Rattando area is an area of perfection for dining.
I HIGHLY recommed this place for a 1st time date, especially for dinner. Very impressive dining place, prices & food amount is just flawless.
1 of my absolute FAVORABLE places to visit for dinning!!!
Best Ever!!!! – I have eaten the Lux soooo many times. Both lunch and dinner and I have yet to have a bad experiences. The staff is great, the drinks are great and the food is even better. I am working my way through the entire menu. I even got engaged here and had my 1 year anniversary dinner here. My husband who is a VERY picky eater can't even complain. If you eat anywhre while downtown this is the place to go. As a matter of fact my birthday is this Friday and I'm going again.
If you like to really eat, come here! A must! – This is the best place I been to for dinner in Chicago and THE PLACE to go.
The portions are hefty and the desserts are barely even finishable after your entree.
I would forget the appetizers and save room for their desserts.
Show up really hungry and walk out so full your tummy is aching with happiness. :-)
The setting is classy (good date spot). Service is very good.
I wanna go back here again soon!
my favorite – we often come downtown to spend the weekend at the family condo, more often than not we go to the grand lux. the food is great ! we have never had a bad meal there. the variety is endless and the portions are huge. the service has always been good. the staff always helps each other out if needed, i would recommend this stop to anyone visiting the downtown area. the sister resturant that might be more recognized the cheese cake factory is just as good and also located in a good location close to great shopping.
Wonderful srvice, wonderful food – My daughter and I were in town (yes, tourists) on a shopping trip and decided to try the Grand Lux. It was wonderful from the start, not a long wait, and we got the best seat in the house (right by the window). I had the lunch special, soup, salad, and half sandwich. Nothing too fancy, I'd rather have good food than a show. It looked delicious to me! And was delicious. My daughter, who is rather picky enjoyed her special ordered sandwich. The waiter was very informative and attentive. Great service, great food, not over priced just because they are on Michigan street. Will definitely go back!
