This would be my 4th time at Lumen. The drinks are great and the food is delicious. The truffles fries (frites) are so bomb! The only thing that would make this a better experience is having more waiters and waitresses to be attentive to their guests. They seemed overworked and we had to wait a long time until she got to us again.

Service was fantastic, food was as well. All apps from calamari, shrimp, everything wings and charcuterie was amazing. The short ribs melted in your mouth. My only disappointment was the mussels, small and the bacon in the white wine/garlic just killed the flavor and usually bacon is good with everything just not the mussels. Great overall and highly recommend!

Nice atmosphere and Covid safe environment for a date night on Valentines Day. Pre set menu was interesting at reservation but lacked freshness and quality upon presentation. Steak was cooked very well for surf and turf but the rest was just ok. Warm-cold soup, pre plated salad and charcuterie were disappointing. Ordered other apps from the menu that were excellent including crab cakes.

Service was robotic and we were very rushed during our 90 minute time limit at the restaurant. Was given the bill after 1 hour having barely finished entree and just received desert. No mention of any additional service because the server was “being cut” and wanted to cash out and leave...at 830p on VD. $300+ meals for 2 have much higher expectations for service even with a set menu. Likely make other restaurants choices for a night with high expectations.

Fantastic! For the $75 per person I was disappointed in the generic Champagne and sparse Valentines decor, could have really been top notch with a little more attention to detail. Otherwise always amazing food and service.

The food was great! Because of COVID and 25% capacity, we were only allowed 90mins for dinner and it was a bit quiet. Overall a nice Valentines Dinner.

Had a great experience at Lumen. We enjoyed a 4 course pre fixed meal in celebration of Valentine's day. Each course was great, as was the service. We really enjoyed ourselves and look forward to going back again to explore their full menu.

Great for my picky family. All 5 of them got the burger, but I was happy because at least there was something they all loved. Even the dieter and the gluten free one. Lumen made it easy to take these difficult diners out. We had great service from calling in when OpenTable reservation was malfunctioning to the dinner itself. First time back at Lumen since COVID-19 was a success.

We dined at the restaurant on November 14th. The restaurant was beautiful and with the holiday lights aglow outside it made the atmosphere that much more charming. COVID guidelines were being followed which made me and my parents feel very secure. Table were spaced and employees wearing masks. Noise level was very quiet due to spacing within the restaurant. Food was wonderful. We had the calamari for an appetizer and each of us had a seafood dish (mussels, blackened salmon fall harvest salad, and a grilled shrimp salad) which were all delicious. Restaurant has a nice list of signature cocktails with some being themed for the season. We ordered Spanish coffees after dinner. Not listed on the menu but they had no issue making them. They were delicious! So often restaurants don’t know how to make them correctly. It was a treat to get a well made coffee drink. The service was impeccable. Very nice server and hostess. Friendly and helpful with menu choice. We will definitely be returning to Lumen.

Given they open the patio windows...bring something additional to wear as it can get a bit chilly within the confines of the restaurant itself....

Motorcycles/ATV's parade past on Grand River on weekends tend to take away from the atmosphere

Food is wonderful and service great

Very good food and friendly staff. Atmosphere is vibrant with the park located immediately outside. Great views of action happening during baseball games or other events downtown. You feel like you are eating outdoors even when inside. Very nice.

I thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant, the food was excellent, the service was excellent but I tried calling a couple times because we had a couple questions and nobody answered. I even called after they were open for business, still no answer. Hence, the 4 stars instead of 5.
