LuxBarI love this place. It just has a certain neighborhood appeal, and the food is delish, especially the fried chicken and calamari. And I have to say that the wait staff is better than most, very attentive and very quick.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery dinner experience thereEvery dinner experience there is the same: OUTSTANDING!!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMYUMMWe all got the sliders with fries.

Great in the summertime!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOur guests were visitors fromOur guests were visitors from Taiwan and we wanted something special for their stay. This was IT.
As it was St. Pat's Day we had a super treat; The Shannon Rovers stopped in to entertain. What fun! Our only disappointment was the bagels. They did not fit the quality of the smoked salmon plate; too tasteless and pasty in texture. Other wise the food was perfect and the pricing even better. We'll be back when the weather warms up so we can sit outside.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server Ed was OUTSTANDING.Our server Ed was OUTSTANDING. We were a group of 9 and he couldn't have been more attentive and friendly throughout the entire evening.
Everyone enjoyed their food, also quite the accomplishment.
We will definitely be back and definitely recommend to others.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEven when packed at 9p.m...great!On a busy St. Patrick's Day, Lux did a great job as usual! It's one of my favorite places to go and I love going back. For the area, there isn't a single restaurant that offers the value Lux does - it looks like a restaurant where you'll pay a lot but they have great prices and the food is awesome too. Especially given how crowded it was (even at 9:30p.m. there was a wait for walk-ins!), and how busy the waitress was, she did a good job checking in. They did bring out a wrong salad but they brought out the correct one very soon after, so no big deal.
I definitely recommend LuxBar to anyone looking for great food at the best prices you'll find in that area. Also, very good service every time you come in.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAll around great timeFabulous meal and great atmosphere. We were seated upstairs near the fireplace. Service was excellent and helpful. They didn't mind that we didn't order right away and that we stayed after dinner for quite a while. Would definitely go back. Short ribs and burgers topped the list of favorites.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went here for my sister'sWe went here for my sister's bachelorette weekend. We had dinner at a different restaurant and came here for desert and cocktails. Everything was great. Our table was ready for us when we got there 20 mins before our reservation. Our waiter was very accomodating when we told him what we were going to do - and even got a special shot for the bride. In addition to the traditional deserts, we had the truffle fries - DELICIOUS! Everyone loved the deserts and the ambiance. I would definitely come back the next time I'm in Chicago.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI really like this restaurantI really like this restaurant but there was some kind of mixup in the kitchen and it took maybe an hour to get our food. The waiter was
so apologetic and felt really bad . The manager kept coming over to say just a few more minutes. They ended up not giving us a check
which really was the right thing to do. I just wish they would have said that in the time we were waiting. I would most definitely go back--this was a fluke2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLux is quickly becoming aLux is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. The food is great and for the area, it is on the cheaper side..and that's difficult to say around there. It's a great ambiance and our service has been great each time we've been there. The short rib is awesome and the apple crumble dessert is delicious.
Definitely will keep going back and highly recommend.1/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
