Destination Christmas for our family of 11! Yes, we had a bit of a wait for a group our size, but it was certainly worth the wait. It was hard to make our entree selections because of all the reasonably priced choices, but everything was delicious and even had to ask for take-home boxes. Our server was very attentive, made...

We often eat lunch here when visiting Chicago. We find it reasonably priced, good-sized portions, and a big menu. We also love the décor, esp the marble floors. I've seen complaints about service and that is just another Cheesecake Factory - I don't agree and we've never had any service issues, even when they are quite busy. I had a... More

Love this place! We got the calamari, and both had seafood and pasta - and all were delicious. Lots of room so the wait usually isn't bad. Dessert is a must! We've had the beignets, this time had the molten lava cake, and it was amazing.

Yes, you will wait for a table just about any time you visit this restaurant but the food is definitely worth it. I have never had a bad meal at Grand Lux and the beignets are To Die For!

Avoiding the Chicago cold we headed in to the Grand Lux Café up the escalator to the dining room. There's over 200 dishes on the menu with something for all tastes and appetites. I had the world's biggest Cobb Salad. Friendly service and solid food. No fuss.

I love it here. There is one glass room where the view of Michigan avenue is fabulous however it was so cold in there. I asked why they had the air con on when it was minus 20 outside and they said it was the fact that the windows weren't insulated! Definitely worth a visit. It's part of the Cheesecake... More

If you get the chance to come here, make a reservation or go early. This place was hopping. We came here on new years day for a bunch/ lunch. The food was amazing but the wait was soooooo long from when we got our pager to when we were seated and from when we were seated to when we got... More

We ate an early dinner at the Grand Lux Cafe while spending the weekend in downtown Chicago. It was pretty busy at 3:30 on a Saturday afternoon but we only had about a 15 minute wait. The restaurant is large with nice views of Michigan Avenue. Lots of windows for natural light. The selection of entrees is large and 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.
