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.

Unorganized. I come here very often and this was the most unorganized I’ve seen it. Will give a pass since this was the first weekend since we’ve been back at a 100%

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.

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

Loved it! We took our twin toddlers and our teenager. I was worried that it would be too high end to take our kids but the ambience was just right! Sat next to the fireplace and kids played in their tablets. We all had a great time. Waiter was very attentive and always made sure we had what we needed. I would love to come back.

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.
