Comfort Food
Inspired by the work of Adolf Loos whose "American Bar" was designed & built in early twentieth century Vienna. The bar captured an elegance in simplicity; a style that greatly influenced the work of Frank Lloyd Wright & other American architects in the "prairie school". Stone, glass, brass & wood bathed in natural light, presence in the neighborhood is welcomed & profound.
LUXBAR as a neighborhood saloon is designed to convey that same simple elegance. The food is feel-good fresh, natural & easily understood. Artisanal in style, the menu reflects what the partnership views as an accessible cornucopia of what you might eat on just any occasion. The specialty cocktails are from natural, fresh ingredients: simple elegance.
The staff at LUXBAR is trained in the customer care philosophy that has made Gibson’s Steakhouse & Hugo's Frog Bar famous for legendary service.
Reservation requests for patio seating are not accepted. Patio seating is first come, first serve.

Complimentary specials

Enjoy select $5 wine pours and beer as well as $8 Whiskey cocktails, along with discounted bar snacks to start your night off right!

Service was terrible and was very disturbed to see the waiter bussing tables and them serving food after all the coronavirus business going on. The chicken was so dry on my cobb salad I could not eat it. Caviar deviled egg turned out to be a plain old deviled egg with a small dab of caviar in the center, very overpriced for what is was. Some of the worst wine Ive tasted in a while. Sorry that I wasted my last night out before seeking shelter from the virus here!!

Table of 7. Excellent service. Staff is wonderful Kind. Professional BEST mimosas. Avocado toast with poached eggs were yummy. Others were happy with filet sliders and the cured salmon with bagel, etc. Had a great round table but does get loud in there. Hard to converse. Wish they could do something re loudness.

We were seated right away but it was 10-15 minutes before a server even approached us or acknowledged us. We were ready to get drinks started and this was frustrating. We finally flagged down the server and she seemed bothered to serve us. For the rest of the time the service was very slow. We ordered the first round of drinks, then it took another ten minutes for her to ask about our food order. The restaurant was packed and loud and we felt ignored. The food was good and the drinks were good. Once we ordered, the food came quickly and after that it was fine.

Great place! Was
Surprised how well priced it was. Meets all the tastes. Great job!
We had seared tuna, crab cake, tomato pizza, salmon and shrimps. All was absolutely tasty, beautifully plated and right in time. We were late 40 minutes and though the place was full they managed to seat us.
When back in a Chicago will definitely go there again!
Thank you!!!

I came here for restaurant week with a group of 14. I was able to make a reservation ahead of time so we were able to be seated quickly once we arrived. The food and service was great. Our waitress asked us ahead of time about how we wanted the checks which makes her a Unicorn in the sea of servers in Chicago. Being with such a large group she saved us a headache and that gesture was huge. Since we were here for restaurant week I can't comment on the value of the food but everything I had was delicious. I got the pancake souffle and chicken and waffles. We also got a mimosa that was very heavy on the champagne (which was good). The only con was the service was a little slow - it close to an hour before we got our food.

First off, Luxbar is a beautiful restaurant. I'd go back just to hang out there. My mom and I went for their Restaurant Week brunch and the overall experience was impressive and definitely made me want to return. The particular menu we ordered from was exclusively new dishes that hadn't been added to the permanent menu, so we ended up kinda being guinea pigs (which we love!). The waitress was very pleasant and she asked up for a full rundown on the food (what we enjoyed/thought needed to be improved). Although we ordered from the pre-fixed menu, all the items on the daily menu were priced appropriately, I thought.

I was seated right at the door which was fine but obviously my server didn’t realize i was there. Once she finally came i ordered off of the restaurant week menu! I was not pleased with the soufflé pancake which tasted like a dry pound cake . The chicken and waffle sandwich was too big and bland. The waffles were cold but the chicken was hot

They accommodated a 15 person party for me upstairs in a quieter room, just as I requested with 4 babies!! Excellent service. Did I mention this is my favorite brunch spot in Chicago? The Cobb salad is the best in the city. Thank you LuxBar!

We absolutely loved our visit to LUXBAR. The service, particularly our server (Kyle) was exceptional, warm, and attentive. Every dish was really delightful. Appetizer highlights were the caviar deviled eggs, tuna tartar tacos, and the crab cake. And don't even get me started on the desserts! Wow!
