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.

I really want to thank the manager and front of house team that made magic happen. My friend made a reservation and didn't notice that it was for Saturday and not Friday. When I say they worked their magic they worked their magic. They got us a table in under 20 minutes when the wait time was over an hour. I'm very appreciative of all they did to make it happen. On top of all of that, the food and cocktails were great.

3 of us got burgers and they were extremely salty to the point that 2 of us did not finish ours. Appetizers came out quickly and were the best part of the meal.

Food and service were good, but noise level is way too high. We all had trouble hearing person next to us, let alone someone two seats away.

I have been going to LuxBar since it first opened. Service is always top notch, food is always cooked the way I like it and the people watch is second to none.

The food really was delicious. We went for Sunday brunch, and as it’s quite popular, it was very busy. We are ALWAYS prepared, and fine with, the slower pace of service at these times, but I do expect my servers to at least swing by to check my empty coffee cup. That didn’t happen.When the runner came by with the first armload of dishes, she noticed right away, even remarked “ Whoa, you are REALLY dry!” She came right back with a pot that was near empty but said she was running right back to get some fresh coffee. I’m sorry I didn’t catch her name, because she was wonderful. I would still recommend this place, and when in town, will definitely be back to give it another shot. Maybe just not for weekend brunch.

We had a reservation, but still waited a half hour in a crowded, busy space for our table. Once seated, the server took our drink order. When the drinks came out, they were staggered, and 3 of the people at our table never got their drinks and one was incorrect. The server never checked back. I flagged down another server and asked to speak to the manager. We spoke, and he said he would get the drinks we ordered. He came back with a beer, hurriedly poured it, overflowing the head of the beer on the table and then walked away. When our food finally came, one of the lunches was missing. The manager covered our drinks and the missing lunch. However, the entire experience from start to finish was bad.

One of the loudest experiences I’ve ever had. We could barely hear each other talk. The service was impeccable. The food was tasty and well priced. But we will never go back on a weekend evening.

Great Thursday happy hour and good service! They brought us the wrong order and ended up giving us a couple items for free because of the mistake and bringing the right order took no time! Will be coming back everyone that worked there was nice and accommodating.
