Highly recommend having a meal at this restaurant. On our recent trip to Chicago, we had dinner one day and breakfast another day - both delicious. Definitely worth the wait.

This restaurant although it's wonderful the downfall is they don't take reservations! We waited in line in the lobby to get a pager, then waited until pager went off. At that time we went up the escalator and asked to wait until our name was called, our name is called and we stood in yet another line before we were... More

Our dinner at the Grand Lux was exactly what we expected -- delicious food, with wonderful service, all in a lovely atmosphere. The location of the restaurant, if you have been shopping on the Magnificent Mile, being just a few blocks south from Water Tower, is ideal. Their menu is quite extensive and varied, catering to a wide variety of... More

Luckily found this place. Great for lunch and dinner. Are there twice for lunch and once for dinner. It gets packed so get there early or make reservations (if they take them?)

Stopped into the Grand Lux Cafe for lunch while on a girls shopping trip. Most of us had never eaten there before and was our first time. Was told to order my dessert right away that way it can be cooking while our meal was being prepared, so I did. So of course when I was done eating I couldn't... More

We stopped in to enjoy dessert and the fabulous view. We're never disappointed at Grand Lux. The carrot cake is outstanding, but oh the bread pudding! Soft bread, warm rich caramel, crunch from the candied nuts. Huge portions so it's great for the table to share.

We had a short time frame in which to have lunch. Our server did a great job getting us our food so we could make our appointment. I had the Cuban and my wife had the soup and sandwich. We both had PLENTY to eat and I even took some of my sandwich home. The Cuban was one of the... More

I had lunch at the Grand Lux Café on November 11th for the kick off of my birthday weekend. I had never been here before and was very excited! It was 9 of us and I ordered the Parmesan Crusted Pork Chop and it was totally delish! I usually do not eat all of my food, but I ate EVERY... More

My wife and I drove from the far suburbs in to Chicago to meet, treat, and commune with distant family member visiting here from Europe for a convention. Not enjoying the commute and Chicago Sunday Bears traffic we had not determined where we were going for our mid morning meal. The Magnificent Mile has numerous dining choice and we were... More

We come to Chicago every year, the day after Thanksgiving. We almost always include a meal at Grand Lux. Really disappointed this year. You need to order the apple pie dessert right away. We did. After our meal, waiter said "Do you want dessert?" We said we ordered the pie. The waiter pretended to remember and quickly left for the... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
