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.

For some reason mgmt decided to seat us in an area where there was an engagement party. Screaming kids; balloons popping; and people climbing on chairs trying to hang things. Not an enjoyable way to spend Easter Brunch. We had booked 3 weeks in advance so it was not a last minute try to fit us in situation.

Seated almost immediately since we had a reservation. The server was very friendly and warm. Food was excellent and timing was great. It was a beautiful day to sit outside and have a meal and I really appreciated not feeling rushed rather welcomed.

I’ve had dinner at Luxbar ,I have even stopped in for dessert on a separate occasion. So I assumed I would have a good brunch experience and that was not the case. Our server was very inattentive, her energy was very lax and uneasy as if she didn’t want to be at work. Manager on duty was apologetic but he didn’t know why, just wasn’t a great experience. I won’t say I won’t return but I will say I won’t return anytime soon

We spent hundreds of dollars here and were rudely rushed out - they would not let us stay or enjoy our drinks.

The service was great. The staff was very attentive and very well coordinated as multiple staff served our table. The ambience was well above average and felt safe given the Covid protocols that were in place. My friends and I all agreed that this is a place to revisit on for other occasions.

Lux is a great go-to for good food at an upscale bar/restaurant. Their hummus plate is a favorite out of all restaurants. We also had the salmon entree, which was cooked just as requested, and side of brussels with no bacon. the side was shy on size (slightly voided in areas) Waitress was friendly, but we've had better.
