Was better than expected. Had a great dinner experience with great service. And the best steak I’ve ever had.

The restaurant is lovely. The food was excellent. Our server was very personable and eager to please. The drinks delivery was painfully slow...especially considering the place was practically empty. We ordered cocktails to start but had already finished our soup before we got them. We ordered the cheese plate for desert but the cheeses had clearly just been taken out of the fridge because they were cold and hard (cheeses should always be served at room temperature). However we would certainly go back as we enjoyed our experience overall.

What a great experience before going to a show. The waiter was attentive and prompt. The food was excellent and the restaurant has a very relaxed atmosphere. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

We we went to Luma on our way to see a live theatre production. It was amazing. The oysters fresh and delicious, the beet salad was to die for. Great service,so close to the theatre. One of my favourites!.

Pretty disappointed. Ordered a cocktail with rum and was told it wasn't available. Ordered IPA beers and told it wasn't available. Ordered a specific red wine, and told it wasn't available. The service was very slow with no one coming to take our drinks order for a long time despite the restaurant having only 3 tables occupied. HAd to wait a long time again for the servers to take our food orders after serving the drinks. Menu options for entrees were limited too and not the best variety apart from the steak frites. The appetizer menu was good. thanks.

Disappointed that Luma's menu is now essentially `bar bites', with little choice of anything more substantial. I suggest waiting for the new menu (apparently `on the way') before making a decision to eat here. Further, the one thing I did order, with few other patrons in evidence, took ~45 minutes to appear after ordering. Yes, it was comped by a very apologetic manager but it still meant wolfing it down so as not to be late for my film showing.

Service was very poor. Servers would come by but then walk quickly away without checking in whether we wanted to order anything. It was so slow that we gave up trying to order dinner and got apps instead.

It was wonderful to be back at Luma. The food was delicious. We can't wait for the full menu for dinner to be back. We hear it will be next week! Service was outstanding. It was quiet for a Friday night but I expect that will change when the dinner menu returns. Lovely night all around.

Lovely place to go with friends before a show. Fantastic location and ambiance.

The menu was a bit pared down from previous visits but no doubt due to COVID restrictions.

The food was excellent though. Most of us choose steak and frites and two had the spicy salmon bowl, which was not overly spicy.

Luma is a great place to lounge after seeing a movie at TIFF. The menu is short and with interesting share plate items and a they have a great cocktail and wine menu.

Just a limited Bar Menu but enough variety to satisify with everything tasting great. We had the Sliders, Empanadas, Truffle Fries and a dozen Malapeque Oysters. Can hardly wait for their full menu to return.

We ordered a glass of wine. And planned to order food. The waiter never returned to take our food order. We ended up asking a different waiter to bring us our bill. We ate elsewhere.

I had hoped the menu would be more extensive. Yes t was just “bar bites.” I was hoping for a salad. However, the spicy tuna tartare was excellent!

We reserved a table 3 days earlier for a Saturday night while at TIFF, expecting a lovely meal during one of our slightly longer breaks between movies. When we got there, after checking in, being seated, and finally seeing a paper menu, we learned that there was only bar food. They had not yet started serving the food they advertised on their menu in open Table. The waiter apologized, thought the manager called everyone who reserves to warn them. But no call for us.

Saturday night, other restaurants were all booked, and we had very little time to find anywhere to eat and make it to the next show in time. Very disappointing.

Limited staff, very limited menu. The place was opened in haste in an attempt to capture the TIFF crowd. O&B is capable of doing so much better. It seemed like they weren't even trying.

Our service was superb as was our incredible meal as we so enjoyed the north wood mushroom soup, the cod tacos and outstanding grilled halibut et al. The desserts and tea/coffee completed an extraordinary evening. We so look forward to returning many times.

The lobster roll looked great, with good size and quality lobster pieces. The taste was drowned out by entirely too much oil. It’s the only thing we could taste.
The octopus was fantastic. Nothing but good things to say.
The glasses were dirty, finding lipstick on one. Heightened sensitivity with the health crisis being broadcast. Round of drinks was comped, excellent response by server.
I thought 1.5 hours to get our food for 5 people was a lot.

We dined with 7 friends after the theatre. Of the 8 of us 5 have food allergies and intolerances. From our server to the chef The care we were given was outstanding. Each individual’s needs were addressed separately and the meal we were served reflected it. I highly recommend this restaurant.
