Great service and Ambiance.Great service and Ambiance. Food was OK, not the best, but not awful either.11/4/2013 12:00:00 AMconsistently excellentLuma is becoming my favourite TOronto restaurant. I have been there now at least 6 times and it is always consistently great. The food is excellent and the service is friendly, efficient and unpretentious.8/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved the the food. TheI loved the the food. The Beet Salad is delicious! Hands down Luma had the best service I have ever experienced. I was blown away by the knowledge the servers had about the menu. Not only that but they genuinely seemed to love the food and got excited talking about it. One of my friends did not like her main, it was just a personal taste preference and not any fault of the restaurant. The manager and the server noticed she did not eat a lot of her main dish and insisted they take her meal off the bill even though she thought that unfair to them because the food was great, just not for her palette. They also brought us out a free dessert to share. Great overall experience!8/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasion dinner and showA bit pricey but worth the money. I had the lamb, my husband had the lobster burger. The portion size was right and food cooked to perfection. Service was attentive, helpful, not intrusive. We went there at 5:00 for a 7:00 show and made it in perfect time, although getting our bill at the end was a little slow for some odd reason. I think it was the large party that came in after us. If youre going to a show as well, go a bit early so you have enough time to really enjoy the restaurant and ambience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great meal and wonderfulWe had a great meal and wonderful service. Thank you!!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular celebration at Luma!!My husband and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary at Luma, and were thrilled to have dined here. Our pleasant experience began with an introduction to our cheerful waitress, whose enthusiasm was contagious. The service was attentive, and well-timed. Our water glasses were always refilled at just the right moment. The best surprise for us was receiving a complimentary flute of Prosecco (each) to raise a toast in honor of our special occasion. What a nice gesture it was from Luma! Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious, including the tuna appetizer, the jalapeno soup, and the steak-frites, and arctic char main courses. Beautifully presented too! We didn't order dessert as we were rather full, but we will be returning soon.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLUMA is always a great choiceLUMA is a great restaurant. The food is amazing. The place looks great. The huge windows bring in fantastic light from outside to compliment the terrific decor and atmosphere inside. The staff is always so friendly and attentive. The hostesses seat you right away, which means to me that the reservation system is really organized. No annoying long waits to get a table. This is definitely one of my favourite restaurants. Caught a film screening at Hot Docs right after dinner... perfect night out.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food is agelessRecently lunched @ Luma. We're two 50+ suburbanites, joining my high flying nephew on business from Europe. There was great space and airiness in the restaurant so immediately relaxed into the dining experience. Everything served was wonderful, particularly the calamari, The 'special" a buttermilk crispy chicken was exceptional and the grits were from heaven, and I don't even like grits. Extremely flavourful food right down to the coffee. Three persons = $150(incl tip) That included a glass of lovely wine, one appetizer to share, and coffee and cookies.Obviously a very talented chef.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLovelyWe left with a very good impression of this restaurant.
We had booked for six, two of whom were business friends visiting from the UK so it was business/social and we wanted to impress.
The service was a bit slow but we didn't mind at all (I didn't notice for about half an hour!) as we had drinks and bread and were busy talking but this is why I felt I had to drop a star.
The food was excellent and the waiter was very good. It wasn't that busy either so not sure why it was slow - perhaps they could see we were happy anyway.
We were amongst the last to leave but didn't feel any pressure from the staff to go which was great.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFor a couple of friends diningFor a couple of friends dining and catching up this was a wonderful experience. We didn't feel rushed. The pace was lovely. We had an attentive server who was very friendly and knowledgeable. He recommended the soup which was an amazing vegan wild mushroom soup. Who needs cream and the extra calories! Delicious! The rest of the meal was equally tasty.. Would highly recommend.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWith excellent service andWith excellent service and a great ambience, this upscale restaurant is great for special occasions or experiences fooides.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting food choices,Interesting food choices, well executed. Service both friendly and professional.
Sadly the dessert menu has too narrow a focus and didn't tempt any of us.
Place can be very busy depending on what's showing at tiff esp. week-ends.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely worth checking out.Some of the best service and best food in town.
