    The sushi was great! Fantastic service. I would say that the price per item is a little pricey but it’s definitely worth the quality and experience.

    Completely disappointing experience. 40 minutes to get drinks. 30 mins late for reservation seating. Seating options are not suitable for dinner. We went to celebrate my daughter’s 21st birthday and left feeling like we should have selected a different restaurant.

    Fantastic view, good food with a very skilled and accommodating service staff. Need to have a separate room sealed off from other guests for those post work type of parties with 8 or more people. We were initially placed next to them and the noise was unacceptable. We asked to be moved, which was better but even at about 35 feet - still incredibly loud. I like the concept of Illume. I would return.

    I loved the food and the bar’s decor. However I felt it missing some lounge music to give enhance the experience. The view from the restaurant and you can see Epcot’s fireworks from the terrace

    It was overall great time. Service was great and food was excellent. At 12:10 lights were bright on. 10 mins after you close to kick every one was disappointing.

    It’s more of a place to hang out rather than eat a nice dinner. I enjoyed most of the food and drinks but not having a table to sit at was difficult.

    the sushi and sashimi, while excellent, there wasn't a wide selection but the staff was great, the view of the Epcot fire works was worth the visit and the sake was pretty good. Very friendly and personable staff.

    WAAAY Overrated! Food is average at best and "Tapas style", but not tapas prices. If you like Sushi, you will be better off going to Seito or Amura. Cocktails were great, but, at $20 per, they better be... Chic place. Nice outside with a view of the fireworks. Very trendy. Ambience was fine. Of course, that isn't why I eat at restaurants, but would be suitable for a party, or drinks and then move on for food. Service. I have to assume that because it was a Sunday night, we got the "B team", but it was pretty poor from the start. I had reservations with a request to be seated by the window in view of the fireworks and we were sat behind the bar. The tables were open and had to request to move, which, was more trouble than it should have been. The waitress was fine, but for those prices fine isn't really acceptable. So, yeah. Go for a drink around 9. Catch the fireworks and then go to one of the other restaurants in the hotel or surrounding areas would be my advice.

    I don't even know where to begin so I'll just summarize the whole thing the best I can. It's tapas so small plates only. We ordered the bao buns, a few sushi rolls, and one other thing, I can't remember. But the service, the flavor of the food, the ambiance, the low lighting, and the VIEW outside was amazing. The tables are a bit small, so not much room for anything, that was kind of annoying. But other than that, I'd totally come back. Just make sure you're ready to spend some money because it is not cheap!

    Seating beside window was a bit awkward (compared to table) and my wife's chair was not working properly - other than that it was a great experience celebrating our 29th wedding celebration. The complimentary dessert was also a pleasant surprise - thank you. The whole experience made our day of celebration an overall memorable occasion. Our compliments to the chef(s), wait staff and overall management staff.

    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!!

    Upscale but relaxed atmosphere, with great drink and food presentation. The outdoor terrace was a big draw, unfortunately it was raining on the evening we went. Nevertheless, the outdoor deck was open and accessible, and we were able to see the Disney fireworks that night.

    I loved the food - excellent sushi and inspired ingredients and flavor pairings! The drinks were good. My only complaint was the seating. The seating was not well thought out and was more fitting for cocktails and apps than a full course meal.

    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!
