It's not that I wouldn't recommend this place, it just wouldn't be at the top of my list. With all the events that are going on during dinner I feel the dine in patrons are neglected somewhat. We did have to wait quite a bit for our food to be served. Our wait staff were friendly and attentive for the most part. However, small things like being charged for drinks when they are supposed to be included when ordering from the kids menu should not be an oversight. Parking is limited due to the big parties being hosted and the restroom cleanliness falls short with so much traffic. Once the DJ starts playing at the bar / lounge it does get quite loud.

Absolutely wonderful brunch! So much to choose from, I don't know where to begin. It is a Mexican restaurant so there are a lot of Mexican dishes like menudo, posole, enchiladas, sopes, etc. They also have a carving station and crab legs, shrimp, omelet bar and countless desserts. I liked the hot chocolate dispenser and pastries and 3 different kinds of juice you can try. Strolling mariachis made for a very festive atmosphere. It felt like a party. You do have to be careful visiting the different stations, as there are people walking around doing the same with full plates. We went on a Sunday and it was a bit crowded. Service was excellent. Will visit again. Loved it here!

Unfortunately the quality of the mixed drink wasn’t the best. The appetizer was too greasy and the salad was soaked in dressing. I really liked the environment and service so I may go back just for appetizers.

I had lunch here two years ago and did not like the food and the seating. However, this time is different. The food has vastly improved and we were seated by the window, and the service is good. Will definitely dine there again.

We arrived a few minutes before our reservation. We requested a window table. They did not have our table ready. They made us wait over 30 minutes for a table and said that we were not able to get a window table because the only window table available was for a large group (we were a party of 6) and the window table was right next to the table where they sat us. About 15 minutes later, they sat a party of 5 at the window table! WTH! Not cool! The noise in the room was crazy loud, it was hard to hear the person in front of me. On a high note, the service was very friendly and efficient and the food was good. The guy at the pasta station was really nice to my kids and very friendly. A few of the people refilling the food were also very nice and accommodating. The only guy that was okay in the service area was the guy making the eggs benedicts, he was not mean or rude, but it wouldn't hurt if he cracked a smile sometime.

Went for brunch on a Saturday. Great food variety. They had breakfast and Mexican food, buffet style, some seafood, pasta even paella. I love that we got so many options, food however was not as tasty as expected except for the chile relleno was delicious. The deserts were my favorite and I love love loved the chocolate fountain. And champagne and mimosas included were a definite plus. The staff was amazing both Oliver AND JoseLuis outdid themselves. They are what made our experience so much more fun and pleasant. They were pleasant, accommodating and so helpful.

The waiter was very attentive to our party of eight. The fresh guacamole prepared table side was very good. Although the location is becoming dated it remains a nice place to have dinner and drinks despite the focus on large parties in the dinner halls.

My husband and I went to reserve a hall for my upcoming company Christmas party, and stayed for dinner. The food was amazing, the desert to die for!!! Enrique was our server and he was very attentive, we felt like we were his only customers. I completely recommend Luminarias, and will definitely return soon.

Too expensive for a weekend brunch. Unless you can consume 15lbs of food, cost doesn't outweigh the food.

We went to celebrate our 12 year wedding anniversary. Our server Enrique was attentive and surprised us with dessert and champagne, he took pictures of us :) the spicy calamari was delicious I enjoyed the salmon and my husband had fillet mignon. We sipped champagne as we watched the sunset.

Service was ok, friendly staff. Took about 30 min to come take our order after we were seated. Drinks came in about 20 min after that. No water at least. We had to stop one of the waitress so we can order since no one came and asked if we were ready. The food quality is ok. Mar y Tierra plate was bland. The price is $50 for this plate and serves 2. Disappointed in the taste. No flavor. Will I come back ? Most likely not.

Great venue and food. It became a tad hot once the other guests arrived. So AC issues I suppose. Lots of great tasting selection and presentation is tops. Price wise is good but not for your ordinary brunch event. I will return!
