    We went here for Mother’s Day brunch booked via OpenTable and didn’t see anything about a buffet being listed. I hate buffets and didn’t expect to be seated in a conference room and charged $80 per person. I have dined here numerous times in the past and have never been so disappointed.

    The service was horrible, we had to keep asking for the same things. Wasn't told it was a buffet. Then they charged my credit card three times, having a total of 700 charges on my card. One charge was scanned and the other two manually entered an hour later, meaning they had to have taken a picture of my card. We paid with cash and a card. There should not have been those charges. And the waitress took it upon herself to give herself a 20% tip for only three people. Which was fine because I normally leave 25% or more. Will not go back and will not recommend to anyone. This made for a very horrible Mother's Day brunch.

    This was a great treat for my Mom. However for the price and location I was expecting a bit more. I chose your location for the buffet so my Mom could choose what she wanted but it was smaller and more scaled down than I was expecting or had seen at brunch buffet's back east. Next time I will be more apt to go with a tasting or pre-fix menu over a buffet.

    The two of us made Mother’s Day brunch reservations. We didn’t realize it was buffet only. The price was high for a standard buffet and the mandatory 20% gratuity was too high.

    The mother's day brunch at Luminaria was fantastic. The food that was made in house was superb, the wait staff quick and extremely well mannered. The Mushroom and Spinach Risotto was flavorful, in addition to the Lemon Tarts. The seafood was well prepared and the spread of food was fun. Would highly recommend going forward.

    I must be very honest here. The food, both quality and selection, could not have been better. However the old adage that says when tips are pooled, service goes down, was the theme of the day. We were half finished with our meal before we got a beverage and had to request that ourselves. Had to ask two people just for water. One of them just blew us off. And the capper was- when I went for dessert and asked where the cheesecake was ( I had heard from others that it was fantastic) the waitress said they were out. I asked when it might be replaced she said, “ there is no more cheesecake. You snooze, you lose.” Her arrogance and lack of tact really out a downer on our day at luminaria. Don’t remember her name but she was by the desserts and will definitely remember it. I asked her, “ so how did I snooze?” And then the bill comes with an automatic tip of 20%. We had no drinks, spent over $200 (which was very fair for the quality of the food. But not for the service). I have gotten better, more pleasant and prompt service at McDonald’s.

    $325 for a sub-par mother’s day brunch for 3 people. Dried scrambled eggs, cold french toast, minimal desert bar. No where near worth what I paid. Let’s not forget the $50 service fee. Patio was nice ambiance. The only really good part of the experience.

    All good not spectacular. We really liked the sausage, the risotto, and the Bloody Mary. Everything else we had on the Mothers Day brunch Buffett was good but not great. When our bill came it had a 20% tip built in which also added sales tax to our bill. We paid it and carefully did not add additional tip. Felt unfair to include tip then leave a space on the receipt for a tip. Not happy with that protocol.

    We were somewhat disappointed not to be seated outside at the patio at 11:30 a.m, and during our lunch, no one was...however the inside is also nice. The service fantastic, attentive waiter. The food is good, my only suggestion is to serve the brisket sandwich on a fluffy bun, not a baguette.

    What an absolute perfect evening! The entire staff at Luminaria were outstanding, and the chef's creations were spectacular. We are a tough trio to please, and our waiter and the food was some of the best we've had. Our waiter's depth of knowledge of the food and wine was truly the best. He had excellent suggestions, knew wonderful alternatives for our Celiac guest, and was kind and engaging. His knowledge of dessert wines rivals the best I have encountered in big cities. The food choices were excellent and the flavors, clean yet complex. Truly an incredible dining experience!

    Wonderful atmosphere and beautifully decorated. The one thing that really made it kind of unpleasant is the our table was seated directly under a heating vent and I was very uncomfortable. I was fanning myself and couldn’t figure out why I was so hot until I got up and left the table. Service was excellent. Food was a little spicy for me — the truffle fries were amazing!

    This has always been one of our favorite places to dine in Santa Fe. It was a bit off as everything was during COVID, but this recent meal told us they are back!!!!!! Service is always wonderful, especially if Juan is your waiter. Food is extraordinary, delicious and always beautifully presented. Cocktails are incredible. Top notch dining spot. The patio is fantastic in summer too. Perfect for us locals as well as visitors to Santa Fe. It never disappoints.
