Dog Friendly Spotlight: Luxe

I think most Clevelanders would agree that Luxe has one of the best patios on the west side. If you are a dog owner in Cleveland you definitely don’t want to pass up a chance to sit on their patio with your pup.  My dog and I visited this weekend to enjoy some good food and outside time together.

Although dogs are welcome every day of the week, it’s on Sunday that dogs really have the spotlight. The restaurant hosts a Bow Wow Brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This is promoted a lot on their Facebook page, so there was a good amount of dogs there on our visit. The dogs were all well behaved; there was only a couple rounds of barking choruses (which, of course, my dog was an enthusiastic participant in every time). Each week Luxe chooses a Bow Wow Brunch Dog of the Week, who is featured on its Facebook page and receives a gift certificate for a free bath at the Mutt Hutt. Can you believe neither one of these cuties were selected? (Although Sampson, on the right, is a former winner, so you don’t have to feel bad for him).
On their best behavior, of course
Since the patio is great and the food is delicious, I’d definitely recommend adding Luxe to your list of dog friendly spots to hit up. I will say I was a little disappointed that the servers didn’t bring any water or offer any treats or anything special for the dogs, since it is advertised as a doggie brunch. I’ve heard there are some dog menu options, but nothing was mentioned and the server and most of the staff seemed a little indifferent toward the dogs. I have heard of more dog friendly experiences from others who’ve been before, so maybe it was just an off day. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt since I was able to sit on a gorgeous patio and eat a delicious brunch with my dog, so it wasn’t really all bad.
