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.

My first time doing brunch at this restaurant, and they didn’t disappoint. The service was great! Still one of my top 10 fave places to dine in the city!

Big fan of the Gibson restaurants and liked the food but our server was absolutely terrible. Not the ususal standard at their restaurants and it really stood out. We had several bottles of wine, none of which she even bothered to pour for us, and she handed me a very hot plate. Seemed completely disinterested in her tables and her work. I’m pretty patient and understand restaurants are having issues finding servers but this server should not be working a higher end restaurant with quality standards as high as Gibson’s. Really made for an unpleasant experience at a pretty high price tag.

The food has deteriorated at Lux. I raved about the calamari , so different from all others with its chili oil and lots of peppers and onions. But it was just fried calamari with a couple of vegetables and a little plastic cup of hot says. Ugh! We left most of it. The cob salad was pretty tasteless abd served in a tiny bowl.. couldn’t mix it up at all and it was boring.
Lux Bar has always been a go to for us. I think we’ll take a breather from it… very disappointing

The Lux Royale is my go-to burger in Chicago, I get it pretty much once a week. I love LuxBar, it’s great non-pretentious but special food and a fun, lively vibe. Servers are always lovely, though as things have opened back up post-COVID they’ve been slammed and service has been understandably a little slow. Doesn’t change the fact this is still my go-to Gold Coast restaurant with great food, delicious cocktails.

Ordered medium Filet sliders. First were well-done, then rare/raw, then well done again so gave up (especiallysince the other person was done eating). We had lots of drinks and other food that was good. But they could have removed that from the bill or offered a glass of wine as some sort of nice gesture for not being able to properly cook one of their popular items.

Everything was good. Food was perfect. The one thing that upsets me from that night we didn’t have a chance to pack up French fries to go (ordered 2 portions) and almost didn’t eat at all . Server just took it away and I wanted to get it to go.

It was fine and on a beautiful afternoon enjoyed. But there is nothing outstanding about it. Plus a food delivery truck was sitting in front of us with its exhaust running for the1st 15-20 mins we were there.

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.

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
