Excellent bartender and waitress. The atmosphere was great! The food is hot, fresh and tasty. The drinks were worth the price. I had the best time.

Unless something changes we will not be dining at Luxe again. We have had dinner there twice now as the first time the service was so horrendous we thought it must be a fluke. One example is our entrees arrived before our drinks. Service was just as bad the second time. The food is good- I hope the restaurateur figures out the server situation.

Luxe salad was outstanding of you just want a nice Greek salad. Big & Very filling, then good size fresh crab cake was just right size & spicing. Flatbread was nicely done.
Lovely Evening to sit outside.

We have friends that play in the band that night and many other nights we go there because of the soft music they have. The Staff is Incredible and the Food is Fantastic. The whole Ambiance is welcoming and perfect for our Dana Point community. We go there all the time and recommend them over any other restaurants in the area.

We were seated on the patio next to a fireplace and the ambiance could not have been lovelier. The cucumber cooler and lemondrop martini were fantastic. We had the mezzaluna salad with chicken and the blackened halibut. The food was good, not spectacular or in any way special, but good. The chicken was done well. The drinks and ambiance were definitely the stars. We had a very nice experience overall.

I had the eggplant rolletini, which is an appetizer, and it was delicious and big enough
for dinner! My husband had the flatbread which was a very thin crust, crispy and delicious.
And, the topping was delicious. Was very satisfied.

Anniversary weekend, the servers were all friendly and made sure we had everything we wanted. The food was prepared just like we ordered. Our main server steered us in the right direction, we told her what we liked and she made the right suggestions. We ordered two gin martinis straight up and they were perfect. We’ll definitely be back

Great atmosphere, friendly staff, food was excellent! Everything delicious. My favorite was the artichoke appetizer- amazing! I was lucky to be there on a night with the halibut special served with perfect mashed potatoes and steamed veggies cooked just right! Sweet little band playing familiar tunes created a fun atmosphere! It was an anniversary dinner for us (25th!) One suggestion... staff could’ve offered us a comp dessert or glass of champagne for our celebration since the prices are pretty $$$$ we spent a lot that eve, it would’ve been a nice touch.

Our server was amazing! & the chef came to our table to introduce himself! He gave me suggestions on how to prepare the perfect filet mignon and also took care of our desert! We will definitely be back with all of our friends

Went out with friends for dinner and unfortunately went to this weird/horrible restaurant. Luckily we had each other to laugh through this experience. Weird music, weird crowd, horrible service and horrible food. YUCK

We went there for breakfast. My french toast was really fantastic. But my parents ordered the steak and eggs and avocado toast, and they both did not like their meals. They felt that my french toast was so much better than both their meals. I would go into more detail regarding why my parents didn't like their meals, but I cannot remember off the top of my head.

Food good. Restaurant almost empty on a Sunday evening. First they wanted to seat us right at the open front door. We asked not to be. Then we got put in a tall bar type table in the back corner. Our plates and drinks barely fit on the table. Service was terrible. Even other tables were flagging the server down when they had needs. The place literally had 5 parties between the floor and bar. We will give it one more try since the food was really good. Maybe it was an off night.

The food and atmosphere was great. You will not go hungry! Server seemed off and never asked if we wanted refills or to order anything else. May have just been a bad day, but for a spot that touts themselves as a great martini bar, this seemed odd.

Yes, but I see it as an upscale local dive bar. Good, live music with nice food and good cocktails to pair with it.

I believe everyone deserves another chance. The female chef was missing and it was seen in the food. The reservation wasn't there and only one server on who worked very hard to make sure everyone was cared for. Bravo for him!!!!
Just disappointed in the food being dry not what was expected or previously received. Tnx

We had a reservation ( and yes, we were on time), however had to wait 13 min for our table. The hostess was not professional. She did not greet diners as they approached for check in. The place was understaffed. We waited almost 20minutes before our waiter even took our drink order! I even heard other couples at another close by table complaining about the service. The place offers live music, which is a plus! The food was just ok. I had lamb chops( could have been more flavorful)... and my husband was not thrilled with the Lobster ravioli.

We signed up to get notifications of any specials. We then did get a notification but when we went to pay the bill the server seemed confused and unaware of the specials. The owner “Cindy” was there and they did adjust our bill. I hope they make sure everyone knows about their specials and if there are rules to inform guests.

We did enjoy the atmosphere. The band had some nice sets and in between sets the music being played was enjoyable too. There was no parking on the street but there is plenty of parking in the parking garage in the same building.

The restaurant was also able to accommodate my food allergies, (which are several). Everyone in our group loved our meals.

We will be back.

The food was great and comparably priced. We had filet. There was live music, nice but a little loud for the space. We would have preferred a regular table, but were seated at high table. Service was very good.

Very good ambiance for a date night or just going solo. Fun atmosphere, good live music and a classy spot. Mahi is not my favorite fish typically but the Mahi dinner I ordered here was outstanding. Still thinking about it. Made a Mahi lover out of me.

Staff and service was excellent, food was great, staff were wonderful. Only issue is that the noise level from the piano player and vocalist was over the top, we had to move outside to eat. Tip, live music starts at 7:00, music free days are Sunday through Wednesday, make your reservations accordingly!

Excellent restaurant choice for us! Luxe has an outside patio to accommodate people traveling with their furry four legged friends. The atmosphere was great. Live music with people who really can sing! The food was delicious and service was excellent. Our waiter was personable and very attentive. The cucumber martinis are wonderful. I’d highly recommend Luxe for any occasion.

Found this place on OpenTable and decided to try it out. Very friendly and attentive staff from the moment we walked in. The drinks were great, large variety of beer and wine along with their martini menu. The food was excellent, wide range of different items to accommodate almost anyone. We will definitely be back.
