It has a nice niche on the street. It is mellow and has good piano music often with solo singers. But it can get really lively during Thurs-Sun. evenings. If you want privacy you can go outside and have a nice quiet intimate dinner. Happy Hour is good but food is over priced at HH compared to other places on... More

We have been going here since they opened a few years ago. Always a great experience with wonderful food, ambiance and friendly service at a reasonable price. They have hosted a couple of parties for us that were wonderful.

I like to go there on many evenings to hear there music and enjoy the atmosphere. There Happy Hour is good and the bar can be fun if you are single. But also can be very quiet and empty like much of DP. The trolley stops there and it has good street parking. Try it... you never know.

Luxe is a great place for a good cocktail - I love their Lemon Drops, personally - and their happy hour snacks are delicious! My favorites are the meatballs and garlic cheese bread, super cheesy. One order of each makes an amazing dinner for low price at happy hour. The owners are also terrific and the bartenders make great drinks!

This is such a cool place to get a drink! The small plates are unique and perfectly prepared. There is an outdoor seating area that is perfect to hang out in on hot summer nights!

Have been here five or six times because its in the neighborhood. Usually go out with neighbors and this is walking distance. I find their food items to be overpriced, as well as their drink and wine prices, and the service is quite average. I will say it was better on the last visit, but not enough for me to... More

I had often wanted to try Luxe as I walked by. Today, I decided to try it for a late lunch promptly at 4pm. The interior is cool, aside from when you need to exit the restaurant for the rest room and cannot get back in without exiting on the street and coming back through the front door. I ordered...
