I make my own humus but theirs has mine beat and the portion size was more than expected. Had the pot roast and the two of us ate and took some home along with delicious masked potatoes. The desert was beignets with three toppings. They...More

Our son took us there for lunch one weekend because I had never eaten there. We all ordered different entrees so we could try a variety. It was very good, they didn't take too long with our order for three. I would probably re- visit...More

Our experience here was excellent! Prices were very reasonable, and the menu presented multiple options for everyone's taste. The bread, salads, and entrees were delicious! We all agreed that it was the best meal of our trip. I only regret not saving room for dessert!

Started the night off at the bar for a drink, within 20min we were seated, the wait staff were very knowledgeable about the menu. The food was excellent, and the service was great. Thanks for a great evening.

This restaurant is over-sold. The menu is ginormous and none of it is done well. I ordered a salad with cold chicken and avocados. I had to hunt for the chicken under a monstrous bed of greens. The chicken was tough and flavorless. The only...More

We walked from our hotel on McCue to the cafe. The decor was bright and over-sized. It was very busy, but we were there on a Sunday for lunch. It took a while to go through the multi-paged menu. The food was good, the servings...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
A couple of negatives. Yesterday, (3/15/15), we ate at the Grand Lux in the bar area and the waiter did not bring us bread and butter before our meal. We asked one of the waitresses to bring us some and she did. Also, another female staff brought out our food. The waiter never came to ask us were we pleased with our food or if we needed anything. I gave him a good tip because I know they rely on tips, but he would have been given a better tip if he did these things mentioned here. So please let the staff know what they should be doing to better the service. On a good note, we loved the food. Yes the prices are above average, but it is well worth it.
