Century Hospitality Group has 'raised the steaks' with the unveiling of LUX Steakhouse & Bar. Located in the heart of downtown, diners at this upscale urban steakhouse enjoy a hip, refined design and a menu that would do any traditional steakhouse proud. The atmosphere is pure modern day elegance with its vibrant colours, rich fabrics and darkly stained woods. Chef Tony Le will have your taste buds dancing with his numerous innovative creations, far from ordinary steakhouse fare. 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.

    I've always been a fan of Lux. They went above and beyond recently when I took my fiancé there for her birthday. I had reserved through open table and included notes on it. When we arrived, we were seated and greeted by our server with a "so I hear we are having a birthday". I was surprised they read the notes... The rest of the night was magic, the service was amazing, they were attentive and the food was amazing. The chef came out and asked if there were any allergies as he was preparing us a special, off the menu, dessert just for my fiancés birthday. With that night, they have won my loyalty. I won't go anywhere else.

    A little pricey for quantity and quality There was 6 in our party so a variety of food was ordered some bland but some great flavoured dishes Mixed reviews from people in our party The poor waitress was taking care of many tables, that came in around the same times, by herself so service was a little slow but we weren't in a rush

    I spent over a week looking for a romantic place for my wife's birthday. Pictures online seemed like a romantic spot, and the menu looked great. What I wasn't expecting was the fantastic service we received. Everybody, waiters, host, even someone who looked like the owner came and checked up on us repeatedly. They gave us real advice. The chef heard that it was our first time eating lobster, and came out personally to ask how we were, how it was, and to say happy birthday to my wife. They even gave us birthday cake at the end on the house by surprise. Everyone there made us feel genuinely welcome, gave heartfelt recommendations, and made our night really special.

    We were there 6 months ago and it was a really bad night for us. We have been going there for many years so I decided to gave them another chance. It was out 30th wedding anniversary and I wanted to make sure that everything would go well. I talked to one the manager the night before and told him how important this night was. I didn't expect to have such a great night. The food was excellent and our waiter Paris was excellent. I found out that they have a new district manager and I could tell you that we will remembered this night for a very long time.

    My friend and I do lunch at Lux one Wed per month because we both enjoy the special - liver and onions. We have enjoyed this on several occasions. I don't believe that liver should be served raw or rare and oozing blood. We were sorely disappointed on this occasion by the severely undercooked liver we were served. We will try the special again next month and are hoping there is not a repeat performance. Lux was kind enough to remove it from our bill and return it to the kitchen but unfortunately we did not have time to reorder.

    I picked Lux from OpenTable reviews and having seen an advertisement for it. It was dimly lit, nicely appointed, classic steakhouse. Wine list was pretty decent, though my first choice was no longer available and the suggested substitute was no really on par (not to mention the cork was dry, calling into question their storage techniques). All in my party enjoyed their entrees (chicken, ribeye, surf n' turf). Lobster truffle mac n' cheese was outstanding. The carrot cake dessert, while a huge piece of cake, disappointed. The cake part was good, but the frosting was not. Recommend the coconut pie instead.

    I am not normally one to write reviews, however my service at LUX was worth sharing. We went mid luch hour so we expected it to be busy, we did not however expect to wait 20 min for the server to take our drink order, and another 10 min for the drinks to arrive. When they got to our table 2 of the drinks were not correct, and they didnt bring a glass for my wine. After waiting yet again my wine glass was brought to my table - the other 2 drinks were never replaced though, apparently you drink what you are given there - not what you order. In all fairness the food arrived quickly and was decent. When it was time for the bill to arrive another 15 min were spent waiting for it to be split up by the server, and another wait to pay.

    I need to trust my instinct and not be swayed by the waitstaff's exuberant promotion of the daily special. The smoked salmon on miniature English muffin was not special at all. The smokey-onion taste was overpowering; the portion mercifully small. Service was slow for a downtown lunch venue. They need to remember that people work downtown and can't take 2-hour lunches. The guys next to us actually left because it was taking so long for them to place their order. I think they need to hire more waitstaff.

    I have been to your restaurant several times. I have to admit this was my least favourite experience. My family and I brought my grandma for her 90th birthday so she had never been. We did not have great service, EXTREMELY slow. Our drinks were constantly empty and if one of us asked for a refill she would be gone in a second before the other people with empty drinks could ask for a refill as well. I like your restaurant but for the price of our dinner I definitely expect better service.

  • Steaks were fantastic but....
    casualdiner
    Dined on 4/5/2014
    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.....

    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!!

    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!
