Overall

Accommodations totally unsuitable for a party of 18. Hostess at sign in desk, rude, seemed bothered by the intrusion of so many paying guests. I always thought that's how businesses made their money. Won't be going back, and will not recommend to anyone else.

Longhorn glitter

My first time to eat at Grand Lux was last week and I was thoroughly impressed. I hope to return there soon even though I do not live in Houston. The waiter was very pleasant and quite informative when he learned that it was our first visit there. I ordered the Bento Box, which changes entrees and soups daily. It included soup, salad, an entree and two sides. The food was delicious and well presented, and the price was reasonable. Dessert beignets were amazing. The three sauces that came with them were perfection, especially the creme anglaise! Can't wait to go back!

Last Meal

It was almost as bad as SW Airlines. We were rushed to order then rushed to leave, leaving my friend and myself to feel like cattle. I'm wondering why I left a good tip. The food was removed from the table before we were through eating without questions of whether we were ready to leave. At least the waitress offered to package the generous leftovers for take-out but she was in such a rush we didn't get to ask her for our bread. Maybe the rush was because we were a party of two women and she wanted better tipper potential. It's no wonder that women are notably bad tippers if the service doesn't deserve a good tip.

Hail the Majestic Cakes

With Eatzi's being gone, the second best place to get to-go desserts that will wow guests is Grand Lux Cafe.

?The Best? a carrot cake w citrus cream cheese icing and the Deep Dark Fudge Cake are good enough to serve at weddings...rich and gorgeous. They also do inscriptions with a thin cookie on the top. These tall, layered cakes serve about 12.

They have these artistic, tall, peaked meringue pies that I have been tempted to try, but when I go to Grand Lux, I am there on a mission.

They will run you about $40 and you will need to call a day ahead to ensure that they have enough. I have called the day of and lucked out though. They thaw them out too. Make sure you inspect the cake when opening the box.

Attentive service and good food

My first visit to Grand Lux was today and we started ordering right before five in the afternoon. It is a little early for dinner, but my friends and I were hungry so we decided to just eat then. Upon entering, we didn't have to eat and sat at a table immediately. The waiter was very informative and even recommended us on a few menu items before we started looking through it. The prices at Grand Lux are quite pricey for certain dishes, but I think it is a pretty good deal when you eat there during their lunchtime (ends at 5 P.M.). The crab cake was delicious, and my Yellow Tomato Pasta Pomodoro was pretty good. I ordered it with their homemade chicken meatballs, but the meat was too dense and garlicky. Nonetheless, the pasta itself was well-seasoned though. Overall, it was a good experience at Grand Lux for my first time.

Liked it Well Enough

I chose this place for my birthday celebration with a very close group of friends. Service was a little slow, but we got our table just fine (best to make reservations if over 4 people). Our waitress was extremely pleasant. My mojito was spot on, everyone loved their drink orders. The portions were definitely impressive. Most of the food was very good. Grand Lux really should work on the Weinersnitzel. My veal was a little tough, the red cabbage was too sweet with the mashed sweet potatoes (maybe I should have kept the regular mashed potatoes). But all in all, we would come back. A little pricey for the fare.

Food makes up for service

Went here for lunch on Valentine's Day. Upon leaving, our server provided us with coupons (4 actually) for a free dessert with our next $30 purchase. We returned this past weekend for those free beignets...On our first visit I had to flag down a MANAGER to request drinks. Our server showed up just as her manager was bringing our sodas to the table. The food is excellent - gigantic selection and portions just like Cheesecake Factory - I think it is the same company? Our recent return had the same result - took forever for a server to address us, we were never provided a bread basket, and then once our order was submitted, it took forever (30 minutes at least) to get our food, which had mistakes (hash browns instead of fries). Our server was nice enough, but left us with an overall feeling of ""service definitely needs improvement"". But this is a big chain, with good food, so I am sure their business is fine. Beignets are EXCELLENT.
