    It is a nice, new place with a lot of potential, however there is a LOT that needs to be done. While they had our reservation, my table wasn't ready for about 10-15 minutes. Others in our group with similar reservations also waited to be seated. We were able to order drinks while waiting. Our service was nice and friendly, and the food was good, but nothing really special. The biggest disappointment and by far the biggest complaint was the price for everything on the menu! The prices are way out of line for what we were served! I was shocked at how much they charged. I don't plan to return.

    Great food - not a huge menu selection, but very diversified. It was nice to be able to sit at the rooftop lounge for apps & drinks while our table was held inside. The food & cocktails were great.

    Had the feel of a hotel restaurant, but the food was on point and our drinks off of their menu were good. I had the salmon and he had thr pork chop. We split the steak tartar.

    First time visitor exited to support a new venue! Our bill was $250 for 3 people. At this price point I expect impeccable service and food. The ketchup on my sliders and fries was reminiscent of Hunts tomato paste- flavorless and too cold. The salmon steak was a bit small and at the price it didn’t include sides. The steak was cooked well and my son enjoyed the flavor, but geez- $65! The service was subpar- never asked to order a second drink; so drank water. At $36 for a charcuterie board I expected a bit more than 4-6 tiny slices of cheese, minimal meat slices, nuts and ground mustard. I wouldn’t really say this feeds 3-4 as the waitress indicated. For perspective 4 of us ate melting pot the weekend prior for 3 courses, 2 salads, cocktails, sodas and the bill was a little less than what we paid at Illimin8. Plus we got dessert at melting pot! With a price point of $65 dollars for a steak- I’ll be going to the Peppertree. Perhaps we’ll visit again for cocktails, but don’t expect to ever return for a meal.

    The food was very good! Tasty and fresh, well prepared. Cocktails were nice and different. The chocolate hazelnut torte was so good! The only glitch was the slow service by the host. We arrived and were left standing for almost 10 minutes even though it was a slow Wednesday. The host spent a fair amount of time talking in the kitchen area and not checking on the door. Another group arrived and were offered a table in the bar area that for the group of six had one small low table. They asked for a different table and were told no so they left. The large table behind was left empty the whole evening while we were there. Two other people stood in the doorway for quite a long time an finally gave up and left.

    Good food that was well prepared although they were out of several things. The sliders were so so, but everything had a pretty good portion size. We were looking forward to maybe doing outdoor dining but with only two tables that weren't sofas that was not an option.

    We went there for a birthday. We were not greeted when we entered. Our waitress ignored us and rarely checked on us. Told you it was his birthday they didn’t absolutely nothing special at all. We will not return. I was very disappointed.

    Mediocre at best food. I had the “grilled vegetable skewer”. Which was bland and tasted of cheap vegetable oil. And the “stuffed eggplant “ which really isn’t. It’s 3 paper thin slices of eggplant rolled around a heavy portion of melted cheese in some oily tomato sauce. The scallop appetizer was ok. 2 scallops though for $18 not worth it. Overall a very disappointing experience. I do not recommend. Many better options in the downtown area.

    Tbh I didn’t like it and neither did my party, got the food before the drinks. Waited about 30 mins for our drinks. There was a table next to us that we knew the people and the server said “because there’s a party of 12 we have to add 22% gratuity” our table only had 6 people, it’s two different tables. If it was one long table I would understand the last súper style, but that wasn’t the case. I’m not sure if I’ll be visiting it again

    We visited Lumen8 during their opening week and the food was incredible. I got 3 LARGE scallops and a GIANT crab cake. However, when I ordered the same thing this past week, the scallops were very small and you now only get 2. The crab cake was not even half of the size of the one I got the first time. Guess they decided their portions were too large? I don't mind spending money on good food, but I shouldn't walk away from a $70 (with tip) dinner and be starving. The taste of the food is excellent, the atmosphere is really awesome, just hate how stingy they are with the food now.

    Absolutely amazing food. The crab cake and beet burrata salad were very good. The flank steak was perfectly seasoned and the blend of Bleu cheese and oregano chimichurri were awesome. I have done both separate, but even better together. The mushroom risotto was wonderfully cooked and the mushroom duxelle added a great touch. We finished with a chocolate hazelnut torte with raspberry coulis and it was an eclipsing dessert that ended our meal completely. All in all, a great Colorado Springs meal that was better than we have had for a while. Great experience with our server Renee. We will definitely be returning to try the complete menu.

    Great views, attentive service, but really poor execution by the kitchen. Feels like they are trying to reinvent the wheel (trying to be cute and bougie) on what could be great dish ideas and the result is bland, strange and unremarkable food (especially the much-hyped chimmichurri beef skewers…tough, a microscopic amount of chimmichurri and very overcooked). Tried 7 dishes and 2 of them could be called “decent”. The green chili was above average though.

    The views were awesome as was the food. Our service was not great. To be fair our server was in charge of a large party which made it hard to pay attention to all the tables. Our server did not put our order in the first time it was taken. It was at least 20 minutes between when our order was first taken and when our server realized our order had not been put in. With the long wait for food one might assume we had plenty of time for drinks, given the low level of attention given to our table we only had a pre-dinner cocktail and second drink after nearly finishing our meal. Maybe it was because we ended up being very hungry, but the thermostat seemed to be set a little low. Overall we will try LUMEN8 again.

    I was interested to check out this place with all the hype around it being the first rooftop restaurant/bar in the Springs. Atmosphere is nice and it does have a great view. Food was fine but nothing special. The inside of the restaurant the decor and seating area is ok, again nothing special. The servers are some of the best in the Springs. They check in a lot which is nice in post pandemic times. Overall Lumen8 won’t blow your mind in food but it’s still a nice night out.

    Food and service was very good. Kay was our server and was very attentive. Enough wine choices. We had the Whitehall Lane Merlot. The salmon and brick chicken were both very tasty entrees. Caesar salad was very good and they let you share anything on the menu. The one salad was big enough for both of us. Music was a little louder than we like, but not annoying. Make a reservation as they were quite busy. They validate your parking in the garage. Spacious feel to it. Tables not too close.

    Really nice and new rooftop restaurant and bar in downtown (it’s a part of the Marriot Springhill Suites hotel on floor 8). If you want to avoid paying for parking, you can park in the hotel underground garage and the restaurant will validate $5 parking. The outdoor area looks like a great place to lounge on couches with drinks and food for bigger parties of people, enjoying views of the downtown and Pikes Peak mountain range. Do be warned that there’s always a high possibility of strong winds so bring layers of clothing.

    Great experience went for our anniversary no one seem to notice but that’s OK! We had the oysters awesome the beet salad wonderful and the risotto with crabcake and scallops. Snacking our way through the menu. I would highly recommend all except the risotto needed to be cooked longer and was not so flavorful. Finished our drinks on the outside patio got to watch the thunder and lightning roll through Colorado Springs! They are very busy but man the views are beautiful!

    We were looking really forward to sitting out on the roof top deck and having an early dinner. 1. There was no shade at all on roof top. They have nothing set up for making shade, so can't even sit outside. 2. They didn't say anything about it on the website, but apparently they have a LIMITED menu from 3-5. Very limited aps and drinks. No dinner items. Very disappointed. 3. And the food was very bland. Chef needs to learn to use salt.

    A little pricey for food and cocktails. Interesting space and great views. Feels like a hotel lobby restaurant (which it is). Apps were good, cocktails were solid, but dinner menu was limited and on the high side of $$$. My bison flank was ordered medium rare and served medium, and one guest (my boss) waited 20 minutes for his dinner to be served. The restaurant comp'd his meal but... it was pretty poor form. We did try some of the deserts but have to say the selection was "meh".

    Definitely has the ambiance of a Spring Hill Suites hotel restaurant. I think they were trying to go for swanky modern but didn’t succeed. Service was great. Food was boring. The outside patio is nice and would be good for cocktails and apps, but the sofa setup doesn’t lend itself to dinner.
