    The restaurant is confusing to find, there are barely any signs in the hotel to find the correct elevator to take up to the restaurant. A staff member found me and my partner in the lobby (at the wrong elevator) and guided us in the right direction. The restaurant had probably 8 other people in it when we arrived and the host was busy doing something else. We got a mediocre greeting and then sat at a table by the window. Our server was very kind and honestly, the glass of wine I had and our service were the best part of our entire visit. The food was sub par and overpriced. Go here for a drink before dinner somewhere else.

    One of Colorado Spring's most modern and elegant night spots. enjoyed a special thanksgiving dinner there, which was well prepared and nicely presented with pretty good wine pairings. Recommend this place highly for a fun night out in COS.

    For a holiday it wasn’t to loud and overall fairly good, the wine pairing with the desert was a bit odd but not horrid, but not something I would order again, the best part was the salad for me but I would be open to going back and trying something off their actual menu

    My wife and I had a dinner reservation for 6 PM. We had a show at 8 PM. By 730, our drinks had been refilled one time, and the water pitcher had been taken away and didn’t come back for 30 minutes! I had to finally tell the server at 7:45 that we had a show we needed to get to and to please ask the kitchen to hurry a little bit. And it’s not like we ordered an elaborate meal! The food finally came out, and we had a grand total of about seven or eight minutes to scarf it down before we had to rush to the show to make it in time. Also, the portion sizes are very small for the price. I ordered the mac & cheese with shrimp, it was three shrimp, and the mac & cheese was about seven or eight bites total. I won’t return here.

    We had never been here before. We had only heard there is a place with a nice view, but our expectations weren’t very high for the food or the service. However, the food turned out to be amazing and exactly what we were looking for to get something locally sourced and healthy and still taste really good. My wife and I went here for our weekend date night and she said we might have found a new favorite place! With her dietary restrictions, they had no problem accommodating her and our server Josh was fantastic! He was a very polite young man who paid great attention to us, despite handling multiple tables. He knows his menu well and the Managers seemed to coordinate well with the staff and Maitre’d

    Food is interesting in a market where chains dominate and innovation is lacking. You can’t beat the view. Service was good, polite, reasonably quick. Downside every huge TV showing sports detracts from the lovely space. It’d be nice if that was kept in a lounge somewhere else in the hotel. Canned music lacked sophistication. We’ll go back for the food, tasty cocktails and service.

    The service was lovely. Space is clean and has nice views. The food is overpriced. I had the soup of the day which tasted as if it came out of a can, and the bison burger, which was just not good. Salt and pepper fries on the side were clearly institutional.

    Overall underwhelming and overpriced. If the prices were half as much this place would have been ok. Portions were small and the food was just adequate. Our server was nice but overworked, he forgot to bring the wine. It wasn’t a bad place but we won’t be back. It’s just not worth it.

    We were excited to try this new place, but left a bit disappointed. Outside patio was beautiful although we sat inside. Inside was a pretty cool vibe and not super loud for a Friday night. Waitress was great, but every food course took quite awhile. The prices were pretty high so we expected great food. We tend to judge the first time on burgers. Our burger was so-so and fries came out almost cold. Appetizer crab cake was ONE 3 oz cake for $22!! Just so so. Our friends meals were average. The Mac and cheese and the Brussel sprouts at least were both very tasty! We will go back for cocktails on the patio (the margarita was very good!) Overall we think the food needs to improve, especially for the prices.

    I love this new restaurant all around!! Great food, ambience & service. However, the music was sooo loud outside that whenever the door opened with customers and staff going in and out, it sounded like the volume of the music indoors in the restaurant was being turned up. Very disruptive to conversations! Is there something that can be done about this?

    There were five of us and all five of our meals were less than average, including the $68 steak. Service was also less than stellar. We finally had to ask if we could order our meal after an hour. Way overpriced for the level of food and service.

    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.

    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.

    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.
