    Came to the rooftop for anniversary drinks and fireworks and we weren’t disappointed. Alanis the hostess was great with our 2 year old daughter and Max our server was very nice. Even though we were there for drinks, he acknowledged our anniversary and suppressed us with a little dessert. That was very nice and thoughtful. The manager on-site knew we were there to see the fireworks and he let us know when they were starting and opened up the patio for us to watch them. Thanks again for the hospitality!!

    We celebrated my daughter’s 19th birthday at Illume. We had a large group of 12 people and were seated in a private room overlooking hotels and theme parks. The food was amazing and very accommodating with our party that had a few people with shellfish allergies. The service was top notch and we had a cake brought out after the fireworks were done. My daughter and her friends had a wonderful time.

    A top to bottom Class A experience. From the valet to the elevator ride—in which the manager just happened to ride up with us and then give us a quick tour! Our server Bradley made excellent recommendations. The view of the fireworks and the delicious food! The team that we interacted with in their respective roles represent the Marriott brand well!

    The service was outstanding from the moment we were greeted by the host, through to the end of our meal. The drinks were delicious and the food was outstanding. Apart from an undersized table, and possibly the lighting being a bit bright, it was hard to fault. The best for Japanese food in central florida!

    Incredible service and really good food that's meant to be shared with friends. I recommend making a reservation close to 8pm to catch the 9pm EPCOT fireworks show. The waiter, Mas, took our group photos and even allowed us to move outdoor into the roof top patio area for the show. By the time it was done, he had our desserts ready inside.

    My best friend and I are locals yet tried Illume for the first time. The atmosphere, food, drinks, and service are absolutely worth coming back for. We had the angry tiger roll, the roll with the sirloin on top, a chicken skewer, and a beef skewer. Everything was delicious. We couldn't eat it all and were sad we were too full for dessert. We also had an opportunity to enjoy the spacious rooftop and view the late-evenimg fireworks. We'll be back for sure!

    Unfortunately it’s hard to recommend Illume which happens to be an overall fantastic resort, quite the bizarre contrast. I suspect this is run by a different F&B manager than the other establishments on property. Firstly your Open Table “reservation” isn’t actually a reservation, be warned. Although we had one and asked to be seated outside we were told none were available (which is fine) and that they are reserved(?). Reserved for who, we never found out as the tables sat empty all night. We were seated inside in a very uncomfortable table and chair setup that isn’t designed very well. The food and drinks are very expensive, which is fine with us as along as the food and drinks are amazing. Drinks were all very odd with flavor profiles that just didn’t go well together. The firebird I highly recommend you do not get. Yes the bird glass is very cool, but the drink is terrible. In fact when you look around the bar you will see many half drunk bird glasses. The food itself you can easily find better for much less cost at any orlando sushi restaurant. You are paying for the view and nothing else. Service is completely different than the rest of the resort which is exceptional. Everyone had an ok attitude but wasn’t really super thrilled to be there. The bartenders are the exception and we watched them interact with guests and they are great. The positives: Views are amazing of Epcot, Magic Kingdom, and Disney Springs. They let you freely walk around with your drink to watch the fireworks (and see all the empty outdoor tables). They had a DJ playing music outside which was nice and the fireworks viewing area was great. Here is what I recommend: don’t eat dinner or drink here, instead eat at the restaurant at the lobby level, grab a drink at the lobby bar, and head up to catch the fireworks at 9. You don’t need a reservation, we learned that anyone can go up there. A shame this isn’t better, but the other negative reviews are spot on. This one is a skip.

    Japanese and fusion food executed very well in a fantabulous hotel (JW Marriott) out of the fray of the Disney crowd. Balanced and solid selection of sake. Kani no gyu maki roll was delicious example of fusion as was the quote spicy noodle (udon) soup. Shashimi was probably best quality in Disney area and beautifully presented. Swanky restaurant decor with terrace views of the sunset and Epcot fireworks. Very special location.

    The hostess is the first impression you have from a place, and my first impression wasn’t great. First, my husband and I arrived and there was no one to greet us. We waiting for about 5min before someone came. We had arrived 30min before our reservation time, so the hostess said we would have to leave and go back close to our reservation time. I understand not having earlier seating availability, but she could have been nicer about it and offered us to get a drink at the bar or hang out at the patio while we waited for our reservation time.

    The restaurant was beautiful and it has a beautiful roof deck with amazing view of the Disney World fireworks! It was my daughters birthday so I timed it so that the fireworks would go off at the same time that we were dining. The food is expensive, I paid almost $200 for food items that at other similar restaurants would have cost no more than $75 - $100, but it was an experience, and if that’s the goal then this restaurant is a winner, overall, we had a great time and we took great pictures.
