We celebrated a birthday at Lumen. The service was excellent and we all enjoyed the meals so much we did not have room for birthday cake.

we had great service and good food. WE were seated in the bar area and it was WAY TOO LOUD> Several drunk people that didn't make for a good experience.

Arrived early for our reservation and we were seated immediately. Most of our party has been to Lumen before and we were excited to return. The only negative part of the evening was how long it took to get drinks, dinner, and dessert. There was a considerable lag time between courses. Beer came out warmer than expected, one dinner came out 10 minutes later than the other dinners (it was a salad with chicken) and dessert must have sat for a few minutes because the ice cream was melted but the brownie was no longer warm. We understood it was a busy evening at the restaurant but tables seated after us were turned over much quicker than ours while ordering the same number of courses.

Sat without a server or any recognition for about 15 mins but once we got Bridgette she was great. Our steak was way over cooked but again she made it right.

We ate in an igloo with three 4 year olds. The igloos are so nice and soundproof (which was great with kids) and our service was outstanding.

The only thing I would like to mention is that it would have been nice if Lumen would have advised that there would be a limited menu for Valentine’s weekend. One member of our party was Vegan and her options were extremely limited due to the special menu

Great venue for the structure. A glass gives great views. Food good and service was good but main courses came out slow.l I think not was just our order got lost as later arriving tables were served earlier.
Cool bar.

The view was very nice, very clean and modern inside. Food was lukewarm unfortunately, but it was pretty tasty. Still a little expensive for the quality. Also was not happy to have been put at a high table right behind the bar when I requested not to, especially because we came at 4:30 with a reservation and nobody was there.

Kevin is the best. Knows when to ask and when not too
Potato dumpling soup is AWESOME. Caesar salad with chicken was the best I’ve ever had. Ambience was romantic with snow falling on the igloos. Outside decorations are the bomb.

Great selection of “snacks” (appetizers) which, when shared, can be dinner, accompanied with a salad. Food was fresh and creative. Ambiance was lovely with the lights outside.

This was a very nice place to eat. Lot’s of decorative lights and the food was great. I thought the outdoor heated igloo’s / glass rooms were really cool. We had to eat inside though due to availability. My only concern is that is was very loud and energetic inside. At times it was difficult to even have a conversation with my girlfriend. But that is because the place was packed, which says a lot about the venue. Will definitely be back.

Wait staff was great and manager great. Some folks decided while at a bar area table they’d encroach on our space and the manager gently had them move elsewhere and comped for our longer-than-usual wait on food.

Our first time back in awhile. Our server, Gabriella, was very attentive & knowledgeable. Enjoyed the best Old Fashioned I’ve had in a long time. Crab cake appetizer, salmon entree & Sanders hot fudge cream puff were very good. Look forward to coming back soon.

Service was excellent. Server was very personable and knowledgeable of the menu. Her recommendations were spot on. We tried the ‘everything bagel wings’ and the pretzel rods for appetizers. Those wings were incredible - you’re missing out if you don’t try them. The Mac and cheese was delicious- the baked cheese on top was just crusty enough and nutty tasting. We’ll be back for sure!

We ate in the igloo. That was very cool. Atmosphere was top notch. However, our server was sadly terrible! I felt bad for him, but he actually messed up two meals in our group of 6. It also took us 1 hour from the time we requested the bill to the time we got our cards back to leave. The service was probably the worst I have ever experienced. My meal was good, but it would have been great if it was warm. I suspect it sat for awhile before he brought it to us. I would have said our experience was amazing if the service would have even just been average and my meal was at least warm.

All of the food was so flavorful ... we had the calimari, sausage and green curry mussels. Service was very, very good (can't recall our server's name but she was great). Ambience and lighting were perfect and we enjoyed the view of the igloos and lights from Beacon Park while we ate. Highly recommended.

We were able to get an igloo for our dinner, it was very quiet space, heated and properly lighted. The food was wonderful, but my only issue was that we were not told at the onset of our meal that there was a time limit or a minimum when you were in an igloo. We were told when we had 25 min left, and that we needed to spend an additional $60 to reach the minimum, which we had no idea about. By the time we ordered a bottle of wine we were told that we had 15 min left, which was very stressful and not a good way to end our evening.

I requested an igloo at the onset of confirming my reservation and was told all were booked, but that there were a couple that were set up as first come first serve basis. There was no mention of the time limit or minimum spending requirement of $300. When we arrived, there were two available igloos, we were seated but never told about the restrictions of being in an igloo. I do not have a problem with the requirement, but all 6 of us left not happy of how we were told so late in our meal nor the fact we felt rushed!

Always a fun time especially when you can get into one of the igloo's! It was perfect to celebrate my daughters birthday with family and even my granddaughters loved the experience! Only issue was at the end, the server kept running two of the bills on the wrong credit cards...a little bit frustrating for the card holders.

We had an amazing dinner before our theater performance at Fisher Theater on a Friday evening(6pm reservation). Allondra, our waitperson was accommodating, kind and attentive. We let her know that we needed to leave by 7:30pm and she kept us in schedule. We were a group of four and everyone ordered something different from the menu and we all agreed that we enjoyed our meals. Allondra provides some excellent recommendations ( although we were hesitant to order a burger for dinner, she assured us that it was excellent, and it did not disappoint). When it was time for us to order dessert, she asked if we wanted to do so given our time crunch, and we declined due to time constraints. However, we will be back agIn and allow ourselves more time to truly enjoy this beautiful venue.
