    Lumen8 has a fantastic set up. The bar and the rooftop are beautiful and make for a very enjoyable experience. The drinks are good and they have a great selection on the bar. The food is okay- they could probably develop some flavors a bit more & add spice where it fits. We had brunch there and the huevos rancheros needed some sort of red/green sauce and the meat was a tad dry.

    Great environment. Nice and open and very clean. Loved the views!!. Our server was outstanding. We both had a latte— delicious but small. Full Irish breakfast was pretty decent. Sausage slightly overcooked but otherwise really delicious. Will definitely return.

    Girls night out was a complete hit! We had the perfect view from our table. Renee took great care of us and didn’t rush us when we lingered towards the end. There was live music the night we went, it was just complete VIBE. Would definitely recommend.

    Food was poor. $5 for a latte that was made wrong first and then was less than 6 oz. I was clearly disappointed with my meal and they mad no effort to make it right.

    Waited over an hour for food. When we got the food it was warm-ish. If I was at home I would have microwaved it. Staff was overworked, but very nice. The fish was not good. They knew they had done a bad job even though we didn’t say anything and comped one meal. Why is it so bright in there? Do better at that price point. This is an easy “avoid” recommendation.

    Made a reservation a week prior. We were sat down by a waiter. He took our drink orders And shortly after our food orders . We waited an hour. After he brought out our drinks he didn’t come back to check on us until we asked him about our food. He said the kitchen was backed up but the tables that came 20 min after us received their orders before us. When the food came it was cold and our food orders didn’t come out together we were still waiting for 2 more orders. I brought it to the managers attention my food was cold she said she would take it back to heat it up. I’m not going to pay $15 for reheated food. We called the waiter over again inquiring about the other 2 plates he held his finger up proceeded to go to a table to fold a napkin and then with a attitude said the other food was on its way. We were over it we walked out. Left the food on the table that was clearly sitting for awhile and went to kfc were we got our food less than 5min. What a waste of time will never recommend this place to anyone.

    Good atmosphere and special feeling location. Love to come back in the summer for the patio! Great drinks! Friendly but slow service. Food was fine, not great, felt reheated and assembled rather than fresh and innovative. Over priced for the quality of the dish. I had the tamale tower which was dry, needed more sauce or something. My husband had the short rib which was fine, the potato puree was not very good, overall underwhelming, especially for the price. Panna cotta, while yummy was too heavy and garnished with a couple of sad berries and grapes….looked like an elementary school snack. Overall-pregame for the views, friendly staff and great drinks (Race to the Clouds is a must), then go somewhere else for dinner.

    Charcuterie had meet still with plastic casing on it making it inedible. Offered 50% off the plate for what to me was a safety issue. Wife’s snapper was tasteless as were the “rice” cakes her and my dish (the tamale tower) were on. My dish was pork on some corn and a bland polenta? My NA beer was lukewarm. Lighting was weird. Would not go back.

    Crab cakes and scallops were great. Main course left a lot to be desired. My partner's medium rare steak came out very, very rare. We would have sent it back to have it cooked longer but our waitress disappeared and didn't come back to our table for at least 30-40min. By that point we were ready to leave. Ambience was great. Food and service left a lot to be desired unfortunately.

    Great view. The bison hash was almost inedible as there was way too much sriracha. When the server asked how it was , and we told her, she just shrugged and walked off. Another in our party ordered crabcake benedict and she got ham instead of crabcake. They took it back, but she didn’t get her meal until we were all finished with our meals. No apologies or attempts to make it right.

Service was very good but my wife and I went on a Sunday and it wasn’t very busy. I would recommend this place, the drinks were very good as well. Not overly priced.

    The service was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and the view. Our server was friendly and attentive. It was my birthday and received a complimentary dessert. We had the blackened shrimp tacos, the fried chicken sandwich, and pretzel sticks and draft beer. We went outside on the rooftop where there fire pits to get an even better view.

    Great experience. Our server Joe was on point. The rooftop patio was such a great place to see the Pikes Peak fireworks show as well as having the city lights as a nice backdrop. Food was absolutely delicious, and the drinks were perfectly made. I highly encourage anyone looking for great customer service, fantastic food, and an overall good vibe, to definitely spend an evening here.

    I was there for the ICONS fundraiser and was extremely glad to discover Lumen8. I was so touched by the way Lumen8 reached out to the ICONS group in this difficult time. I have to say the drink I had was not the best - espresso martini - it was really nothing but foam. I will be back but will try something else next time. I realize that the space was not intended as a performance space but the speakers were in terrible shape.

    The tamale tower was the worst. We barely had any bites and the waitress didn’t take it off the bill. We each had a drink and shared an entrée and appetizer the buffalo flat bread was great! But for all that it was almost $100. Food and drinks weren’t good enough for it to be that expensive. The service was otherwise was 5 star..
