Everything was great.
Excellent wait staff
I loved it. Food was great. The view from upstairs is pretty too.
Wow! I can’t say enough good things about this place. The food is amazing and the staff is top notch. They make every guest feel special. I can’t wait to dine here again!
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
Our waitress was amazing and had great tips for food and drinks! Loved our brunch restaurant week! The pizza and chicken and waffles were delish!
Always a great choice for a meal. Food is always delicious and service professional and friendly
Restaurant was nice. Nothing too special, I would go back again!
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!
Overall good, but the seating space was very tight and uncomfortable.
taylor was great
Always a great experience! This week was particularly nice because Ryan, the maître d’/manager that night moved us from our usual table to a table near the fireplace because our usual area was going to be very noisy with a group of 32 diners . His thoughtfulness was greatly appreciated!
Luxbar is great for a night out. The food is great and for a Monday night, they were busier than I expected. Our server was fantastic and so sweet. If you’re looking to eat/drink in the Gold Coast, definitely stop at Luxbar!
This place was okay. Our server was great. Very professional but the food wasn’t fabulous and the decor was average. It is walking distance to a lot of things but I probably wouldn’t go back.
Love the environment and location
We will be back soon
SO cozy with fireplace on hideous Chicago weather day. Excellent Bloody Mary. Loved my avocado toast with poached eggs! Wonderful coffee. Outstanding service. Perfect respite.
Food was good, not over priced for the area. Service could have been faster.
Was disappointed that bc we made a reservation ahead of time, they seated us upstairs...much lovelier atmosphere in main level
Our chicken and fish were each overcooked. Moderate prices but we were disappointed. Also, valet parking is expensive and there is little street parking.
Luxbar seems to be a popular spot. lots of energy. Everyone was moving at a fast pace. I'm glad we had a reservation because I don't know how long a wait for a table would have been without one. It was a good experience, but not a place that I put on my "must go back" list right away.
NYE and anniversarary
We had the pretzel bites and calamari for appetizers. The pretzels were soft and tasty, even better with the cheese. The calamari was delicious too; the sauce made some of it a little soggy, but the taste was so good, we even devoured the peppers.
For our mains, we had the croque madame and the fried chicken. The sandwich was delicious, rich and saucy and cheesy. My friend was fine with her chicken; it was very crispy but a little basic compared to the rest of the options.
I forget which drinks we had, but we liked them all. I think one was a scotch cocktail and another had mezcal. Either way, all were enjoyed and we'll be back.
Great round table in back by the fireplace. Steak frites were excellent and a great value. The selected wine was perfect and our server attentive but not hovering. No pressure to give up table so we could spend time catching up with old friends.
Best Old Fashioned. Fantastic burgers and excellent crab cake. Great service.
We frequent Gibsons Group restaurants. Unfortunately an off night at Luxbar. Crab cake cold and inedible. Other main courses cold as well. Forgot some of the drinks and extra fries. Not a busy night so surprised by all the mishaps.
11am Saturday seated promptly, friendly front staff. Reservations are highly recommended. Food & service is always good. Our waiter Andrew was most attentive. Great dining experience.
Great night with THE BEST OF FRIENDS!!!!
Anytime we visit Chicago, we try to at least have breakfast at Luxbar. Never a disappointment. This time there were 8 of us, and all had a wonderful experience.
As a local, food is always great. However, I put the service as 1 star because of the hostesses. Very rude. I asked to be seated without a reservation, they had told me they are booked for the entire night. I then proceeded to check open table for other reservations and saw they had many openings, so I booked through open table. I went back up and showed them my reservation which then the hostesses rudely seated me in the worst table in the restaurant, in spite of the fact that the restaurant was entirely empty. I asked her if we could get a different table and she proceeded to tell me there are multiple parties coming in within the next half hour and we could not sit there. After an hour and a half of dining the entire restaurant (with better tables we had asked for) was still completely empty.
Food, drinks and service are always consistently GREAT!
LUXBAR is everything you would expect from a Gibson's property - hip ambiance, top-drawer service and fresh, delicious food, all at a reasonable price and resulting in a terrific value. Gibson's just doesn't make mistakes!
We were a party of 5, myself and my P’s & Godparents (in theory 70s). We arrived really early for our Reservations, on a Sunday, at brunch time less than two weeks before Christmas. The hostess, set us right away! Unfortunately the table they sat us at was smaller and right by a door, I was sitting on the aisle and was in all of the servers way. The hostess was kind enough to relocate us, upstairs which was even better. It wasn’t as noisy and we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon catching up, eating, and drinking. We stayed there longer than anticipated and the servers never pushed us out of the restaurant. And were always there refilling coffee, water and fresh drinks.
Service was not the best this time
Food and service were good but noise level was terrible.
We enjoyed brunch at Luxbar so much on Saturday, December 14th that we returned for this brunch visit on Sunday, December 15th. We enjoyed the skillet with hash browns, eggs, sausage, bacon and an English Muffin. The service was outstanding and the food was wonderful. We will return.
Enjoyed Saturday afternoon brunch on December 14, 2019. Despite being crowded during this Holiday Season, seating with our reservation was timely. The staff was efficient, with our orders being accurate and also delivered to the table in a timely manner. The food was delicious. We enjoyed it so much, we returned the next day on Sunday, December 14, 2019 for brunch again!
I come several times a year - never disappoints. Friendly, helpful waitstaff and the food and drinks are always great .
I highly recommend this place for lunch while you are doing your holiday shopping.
