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.

We picked this restaurant because of our love of seafood and the beautiful seafood tower they use for their marketing. Well it worked and then they took it off the menu “to accommodate the other seafood options for Valentine’s Day”. Which there were 4 options including dessert, but I’ll get to that.

We were there on Valentine’s Day, obviously for a special day and we’re overall disappointed. The restaurant wasn’t very busy and the wait was horribly slow. We were in there for almost 2.5hrs and only ordered one main (octopus that was burnt on the ends and almost raw in the middle. They were missing two appetizers we had wanted to try as well as their valentines dessert. It’s Valentine’s Day, there was ONE valentines dessert, and it was out of stock.

The juice was delicious and we really enjoyed both the salad and crab cakes we had as well as the one dessert we were able to order.

Recent changes to menu have limited the choice that this restaurant had in the past. Overall the service, quality and limited options were acceptable. Value was a little less than I have experienced in the past.
Still a very good restaurant with a good vibe, but has lost a little of its’ cache since I was there a few years ago.

Price point was high, food was very mediocre tasting (although the presentation of the food was nice), service was unfriendly and the décor was tacky (fake plastic rose petals strewn about and oversized fake champagne bottles).

This was a valentines day lunch and the restaurant was almost entirely empty.
Speaks volumes in and of itself.

The ambience and server were very good. Food was a bit too salty and not as expected. Starters were good but the entree was a problem. I would recommend this place for ambience, drinks and starters during a business meeting maybe.

Staff unfriendly, server seemed inexperienced and had to be reminded to bring a drink and ask for an order.

Food was appallingly bad, the “short rib” was the worst dish I’ve ever had. It was a chunk of dry bland beef chuck roast in a flavorless broth with random crunchy vegetables. No spoon. I ate one bite.

Every dish lacked seasoning and depth and was poorly executed and uninspired.

Despite telling our server the advice we were not compensated. I was charged in full for a dish I couldn’t eat.

Extremely disappointed that I wasted a rare date night and a gift card.

Even though the restaurant was very busy, the service we received was exceptional! The hostess greeted me by name and promptly showed us to a wonderful table by the window. Our server Nicole was beyond great! She was super friendly and professional and totally attentive! I ordered from the Winterlicious menu and the food was great. The clam chowder was very tasty and came out almost immediately. I chose the Beef Spare Rib for my main and again was very impressed with the flavours and tenderness of the meat. The apple and blueberry crumble was prepared perfectly and wasn’t too sweet. My guest ordered the Chuck Burger and was pleasantly impressed by how juicy and flavorful it was. We tried several drinks from the bar and each one was amazing. We especially loved the Bottomless Havana! Overall 5 star experience and service tonight!! Congrats to the Luma team in providing another great dining experience.
