- Just incredible.MegzergDined on 8/22/2014I'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.Special Features:
- BJMCDined on 8/21/2014A 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 rushSpecial Features:
- Where did everybody go?buckfergusVIPDined on 8/15/2014It's Friday noon and the place is dead. What happened?
- WowOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/8/2014I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fantastic!!Pink342Dined on 8/6/2014Been coming for years and still my favorite restaurant in Edmonton...never disappointing:) Food, service and ambiance are excellent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/26/2014Enjoyed our late evening meal. Romantic and deliciousSpecial Features:
- Will be back againhappy4everDined on 7/26/2014We 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.Special Features:
- LunchJasmineDined on 7/23/2014My 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Awesome customer service!goodfoodDined on 7/18/2014We had an awesome experience with Lux, we arrived and were greated by the hostess as well as the chef. Our server was very attentive to detail and polite. Out water glasses were never empty. The food was awesome and the the chef even bought one of us dessert!Special Features:
- Good steakhouseJWK69Dined on 7/16/2014I 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.Special Features:
- Great placeOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/12/2014The food was great and the service was even better. Wish I had remembered my waitresses name, but she was very knowledgeable about the menu. My steak was done perfect. Highly recommend.Special Features:
- The worst service, downtown YEGYEGfoodguyDined on 7/10/2014I 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.
- Excellent!Pillin25Dined on 6/30/2014We were looking for a place that actually takes care gluten free stuff / celiac disease. This place it's the perfect place for it!!! Two thumbs all the way up!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Back to being great!buckfergusVIPDined on 6/12/2014I'm so glad that LUX has returned to its outstanding caliber. Great food and service, and all in an hour, makes this an excellent choice for a downtown business lunch. The general manager even stopped by to make sure everything was okay. Nice to see.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/3/2014Don't have much more of a review, love this restaurant!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Steak was cooked to perfection!ShelbyDined on 5/30/2014Typically restaurants have a hard time getting a steak cooked to medium-well but they did an excellent job...it tasted great!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Special wasn't so specialbuckfergusVIPDined on 5/29/2014I 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.
- Good experience!GouletpDined on 5/20/2014When we showed it it was later, so the tables were empty, it was quiet, service was great, wine was excellent food was delicious. Overall it was a good first date!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- NiceVictory88Dined on 5/16/2014Great daily specials, food is very tasty and light, great for business lunch.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Mothers Day 2014JoshDined on 5/11/2014We took in the annual Mothers Day brunch at Lux. It was a fantastic buffet with a wide variety of options. The service was excellent and our son's allergies were accommodated very well. We look forward to our next dinner at Lux!Special Features:
- Place to get the Steak SandwichEngBeanCounterDined on 5/7/2014The Steak Sandwich is the go to item on the menu. Have to figure out which day is the fish and chips feature. Missed it on this outing. Was pretty noisy for the business lunch conversation we needed to have.Special Features:
- Starting to slipbuckfergusVIPDined on 5/6/2014This used to be my favourite restaurant for lunch. Great food, great service that always made me feel welcome, and I could be done within an hour. But lately the food has been a bit off and the service less reliable. Hope they turn it around soon.

- Loved itOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 5/3/2014I have been to Lux many times for after-work drinks but this was my first dining experience. The staff were extremely helpful and professional and the food was outstanding. Would love to return - of course, you pay for what you get.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/26/2014I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great business lunch spotwg60Dined on 4/23/2014I think the Lux Steakhouse and Bar in downtown Edmonton is a great place to have a business lunch. Food is great, service is very good and there is enough separation in the seating to not overhear conversations from the next table.Special Features:
- LunchLunchVIPDined on 4/21/2014Great place to enjoy a good healthy lunch. Fast, good food for reasonable price. Service is outstanding!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Food was ok, slow service,Victory88Dined on 4/11/2014Food was ok, slow service, waitress kept disappearing, also waited a long time for foodI would recommend this to a friend.
- Great LunchNikita96Dined on 4/11/2014Our server was knowledgeable and energetic. The service was fast and accurate. The food was fantastic and exactly what we were looking for.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Steaks were fantastic but....casualdinerDined on 4/5/2014is 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.....Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good Food, Good Service!DiningUrbanDined on 4/2/2014We 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!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Rather disappointing lunchSEagleDined on 3/25/2014I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- save your money and don't go here!ChrisDined on 2/25/2014They 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!
- very good resturentOpenTable Diner Since 2014VIPDined on 2/21/2014The restaurant is very well managed and the staff is very friendly and professional I love the place and I will go againSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great spot for business lunchHappyDinerVIPDined on 2/20/2014It 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!Special Features:
- Amazing rack of lambOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 2/18/2014The 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great, as alwaysJoshDined on 2/15/2014We 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Valentines dayWebbieDined on 2/14/2014This 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. CheersSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food greatAndrewDined on 2/14/2014Food 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
