Fancy looking surroundings but it's all for show only. The service was slow, inattentive, unexperienced and untrained. The waiter did not know the wines, the seafood, or how to open a bootle of chardonnay. The food when it finally came was mediocre, nowhere close to the price and expectations. I'm not sure why you would come or return, as the... More

On date night, we had the Cajun chicken and shrimp jambalaya dish and the almond encrusted trout dish. We planned on sharing but my date is lactose intolerant so she couldn't sample the mashed potatoes nor the trout which arrived with a cream sauce. We even asked specifically for lactose free meals. She like the jambalaya tho'. In summary -... More

Grand Lux, Galleria is a must if you visit Houston. Located directly across from the Galleria Mall, the restaurant features some amazing dishes. My favorite is the Miso Glazed Salmon with brown rice, yummy. Great place to meet for lunch or dinner. Open bar area to watch sports and to meet new friends. I highly recommend Grand Lux.

This restaurant was recommended as place where a group of us could get together for dinner on a Sunday afternoon following church services. The group was supposed to be at least 13 ladies. I was the first of the group to arrive and I checked in with the hostess and explained our plans. She was very friendly but did tell... More

We were desperate for a good place to eat at 10:00 pm and luckily Grand Lux was opened. Even though it was late the service was still good and the food came out hot, fresh and tasty! I'm a fan.

The food was fantastic. But you pay for it...large price tag for semi large portions. Loved the creme Brule!

Definitely not worth going back. The acoustics are horrible and if you want to be able to have a decent conversation with dinner guests you have to yell over the rest of the people in the restaurant. I never get what makes places like this so popular because the food is average, and in my opinion not worth going back.

Grand Lux is a nice restaurant ... kind of a Cheesecake Factory meets ancient Egypt thing going on. The menu is large and reasonably priced. The location across from the Galleria makes getting there difficult before the holidays.
