Not just satisfied with providing Edmontonians with a great dining experience, the team at LUX set about 'raising the bar', offering guests a finer place to sit, sip & socialize. The rich tones, soft fabrics, stunning millwork and feature waterfall wall make the LUX Bar a definite destination for the business traveller and Edmonton's social network.

  • "We are from out of town so when we get the chance to go someone much nicer than the options we have at home LUX has become our go to choice. Yes the menu is al a carte, but that is pretty normal at many upscale restaurants & we enjoy that the side portions are usually shareable size. We arrived early for our reservation & were greeted promptly & professionally, they even seated us immediately. The waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, making some recommendations off the wine list as well as from the drink menu. Our steaks were cooked perfectly & served at the perfect temperature! The manager came over, introduced himself, asked about our meal & made sure we were happy with everything. I highly recommend LUX!!"

  • "is overpriced. Our steaks were fantastic, grilled perfectly. The sides were mediocre. The cheque for 2 people...2 drinks and a meal with a side each....$ 115....and we left feeling we could have ate more. There were 4 of us and we all felt like that and we are not huge eaters. But most steakhouses, you start with bread and sometimes a salad....not here. I don't even recall a bread side to order on the menu? ( I could be wrong but I usually spot that being the Keg's cheesebread is my favorite! ) Our server was amazing - she knew her stuff and she was always there when we needed her but not overbearing. So although we enjoyed our dinner out with friends, we most likely will not return to Lux if it was our choice....."

  • "I went for the server recommended lunch special they had which was a 6oz steak with a side of potatoes and vegetables. Yes, a whole 1(one) potato. The steak was cut into a few slices prior to serving which resulted in it being dry by the time I finished eating the first slice. The service itself was good as always, ambience top notch and I appreciate that they don't bunch the tables together so there is never a "shoulder-to-shoulder" situation. Its a nice and quiet place, despite always being busy where one can have a quiet conversation without having to raise the tone of voice."

  • "They humiliate you if you order your steak well done. They charge you for condiments! I asked for steak sauce and there was a $3 charge on my huge bill. Our bill came to over $140 dollars (no dessert) and I as still hungry after that. Veggies with my meal were cold and raw. They served my $45 steak with chips! Then side dished like potatoes were extra!"

  • "It is hard to find a spot to continue a business discussion over lunch but Lux is perfect. It has nicely spaced tables in a relaxed and upscale but unpretentious atmosphere with the added bonus of good food and service. The Cobb salad is excellent!"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "The food there was great. My girlfriend and I got a rack of lamb, lap of luxury, Kobe sliders and bison gyoza. Everything was cooked to perfection... Way too much to eat as the server suggested but we wanted to try out a few things. Rack of lamb and Kobe sliders are recommended."

  • "We always have a great time at Lux. This was no different. We were well taken care of, the food was delicious and we went away very happy!"

  • "My wife and I went to LUX for Valentine's Day and had an excellent experience. It was quieter than expected, which was nice, but the service was a bit slow considering how empty the restaurant was when we first arrived. That said, the servers were all helpful and on top of their game, they were just a bit slow to get to us when we needed them. The food was excellent. The only complaint is that the brussels sprouts side dish came with more corn than brussels sprouts (which I thought strange, given how inexpensive brussels sprouts are). I'd have preferred more brussels sprouts and less corn, but in the end this is a minor quibble. I'd definitely recommend LUX. It's pricey, even by Edmonton's usual steakhouse standards, but well worth it."

  • "This was our first time at Lux and it didn't disappoint. The only minor things were the calamari was undercooked, and although it was not her fault by any means we did have a very new server and it showed. On another not order the lap of Luxury if you have two hungry people although in reality it could feed four. Simply amazing is all I can say, but ensure you have a large table to accommodate this platter as we had to move to a new table just to fit it. We can't wait to go back and order the lap of luxury with that delicious lobster Mac and cheese and the beef is on point. Cheers"

  • "Food was simply great. The service was lacking, however. My girlfriend and I arrived 10min early for our 7:00pm Valentines reservation and were seated promptly by the host. After 15 minutes we were finally asked for our drink orders, and ordered a bottle of white wine. Our wine arrived, 35min later minus a wine cooler, our food orders were then taken. (Which didn't show up for another 30min, supposedly the "porter forgot it"). Appetizers came - We got the onion rings (usually a side) and kobe sliders. The sliders were nice, however lacking chipotle mayo. Onion rings were a must try. We shared a ceasar salad as a starter, it was salty, however a large serving. I ordered the 12oz ribeye, and my girlfriend the surf and turf. Outstanding."

  • "The service for a higher end restaurant was not very good. Took a long time for our food to arrive, I don't think that I'd go back for a long time."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "I had a great time there, I thought the food was good, but it should say on the menu that the steaks do come with a side of seasonal veggies and like crispy potato things. We ordered extra sides which we very tasty but it was way too much food. Also, the waitress we had kept messing up our drink orders and setting our steaks down to the wrong people. I am not going to judge the whole restaurant on one waitress though. She also took all our orders and then another waiter had to remind her to tell us about the specials. Which she didn't even know what they were she had to read them off the specials broad. I over all had a good experience the staff just seemed unorganized."

  • "My wife and I went to Lux for her birthday and it was exactly what I was looking for. Gentle, quiet atmosphere with professional serving staff and great food. The menu seems a bit limited but keep in mind it IS a steakhouse."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "I've been dining here regularly, about once a month for the past year with colleagues. We take turns making the reservations. Although we are always greeted and sat down right away -- our server sometimes doesn't present themselves for several minutes - which when you only have an hour for lunch, can seem like an eternity. The food once ordered, normally arrives quickly, so we do have adequate time to eat our lunches....however I would suggest having a dedicated lunch menu to get the portion sizes down. No one likes to be over-stuffed on lunch and head back to the office, neither does one want to be wasteful and leave food to be thrown out. There is also the inappropriateness of packing up the left-overs especially if its a business lunch."

  • "a good, high quality steakhouse, if but a little pricey. the meal was exactly as proffered, and the service was perfect."

  • "A late night dinner was on the menu and so glad we chose Lux! The service, ambience and food was outstanding. Every dish was prepared perfectly and was delicious. A must would be the beets and goat cheese for a side! I personally can't wait to return."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "We reserved again on our visit to the city because we enjoyed the first time. We specified our waiter from the first time also. We had the dinner special, 14 oz heritage, salmon and side of beets. I must say that as much as we enjoyed the first visit, the 2nd was even BETTER! Thank you Micheal, we enjoyed your company and service. Thank you to the chef, who we actually got to thank in person. It's hard to dine some where else when we love The Lux so much! :)"

    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "a Steak House is supposed to have good steak and cook it the way you order it, and if the server makes a suggestion and you accept it you should be able to expect that suggestion to be implemented. Well on the night we went none of these things were in sink. Also their salads are ordinary for the price. I did like the scalloped potatoes"

  • "Your restaurant was very appealing, very clean , great service very romantic setting. The presentation of the food was amazing but the taste of the food was awful :( it was flavorless it was missing something like seasonings. The food was extremely greasy as we'll and some of it even came out cold already wasn't hot at all. I was very disappointed with the food :( I was glad that I used a gift cArd and money did not come out of my pocket I would never go back and would never recommend anyone to go back. I left hungry and our bill was 86$! And it was my first time to Lux. Over priced and tasteless. Now I know why there was not very many people there."

  • "We had heard great things about lux and decided to go there for our anniversary dinner. The service was prompt and attentive and the food arrived within a reasonable amount of time. Our starter salads were excellent. Unfortunately our entrees left much to be desired. Our vegetable were all relatively undercooked and our steaks were over cooked and chewy, something you wouldn't expect at a restaurant with such a high reputation. The lobster tail we ordered was rubbery but the asparagus, scallops and beets were good."

  • "Arrived early and had time for a drink in the lounge, the bar staff was great. Once we were seated the waiter seemed overwhelmed and disorganized when trying to take our order. This continued for the duration of the evening. Our meal took an hour and 3/4 to arrive but was overall very good with great presentation."

  • "The food at Lux is absolutely delicious! We have been there 4 times & have not experienced a bad meal. My husband loves the meatloaf which he has every time. I have had the lamb & 3 different cuts of steak. Our friend who came with us on NYE shared the Lap of Luxury meal for 2. There was enough food for 3 people. I would recommend Lux for any occasion, small or large groups."

  • "We had an excellent dinner and visit over great food. Loved how we weren't rushed to order, and we were able to have a very nice evening of talk (wonderful that we could be heard), over some delicious food. Our servers (esp. Gordon) were excellent. Only thing that marred the evening was the cold that blasted through the door, when people opened the door (that was marked "Please don't use "- but still was). I think a redesign to include a vestibule is in order... this is Edmonton, remember. Otherwise, a perfect setting for a special night."

  • "We found the food very good as always. We dined for approximately 1 hour, coffee refill was not offered until the bill was dropped off, virtually when we were leaving and I will say the quality of the coffee was a Denny's level at best, where as the Sawmill chain has a nice cup of coffee."

  • "Tried Lux this week for the first time. I had the ahi tuna melt sandwich and my husband had the reuben. The reuben was fabulous. The ahi tuna melt left a lot to be desired. The french bread disguised all of the flavours in the sandwich. It was not very flavourful. I have had much better ahi tuna dishes at other restaurants. Lux should incorporate more flavours into this sandwich or pair the tuna with other sauces/garnishes instead. Also it was mostly cooked instead of raw + seared on the outside, which I found strange. Good customer service though. Hot spot during the week at lunch. Definitely get a reservation."

  • "After spending a morning of Remembrance for my fallen brothers and sisters in arms my wife and I chose to have a meal out. The presentation of the restaurant and staff was professional and enjoyable. We were both very impressed by the quality of the food and cuts of meat for our meal. The vegetables were cooked and seasoned perfectly to compliment the meat and the drinks were very good. Lux was a long shot on our list and it surprised us both to a very positive degree. To put a great ending to an already positive meal was the fact the Chef offered us our desserts free of charge."

  • "This is where you go to eat meat and not much else. The five of us thought the meat was excellent although portions could be smaller. My burger was very good but far too large for anyone but a starving teen or large man. Vegetables were disappointing and appetizers okay. The chocolate cake was superb and was enough for the five of us-- all we wanted was a sweet bite to end. It was far too big for one person. Wine was excellent. Coffee was appalling swill."
