    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.

    The food was outstanding and our server, Renee, was great! The furnishings and atmosphere inside weren’t as posh as we were expecting, but the view outside made up for it. It had rained, so the cushions outside were very damp to sit on. Perfect place to watch the sunset!

    Location and food was fantastic; however, the food was slow coming out of the kitchen. Four of us ordered the pork chop and were not disappointed! The chairs for the higher tables were uncomfortable but the views were incredible and staff was very friendly.

    Good food! Shareable was what they said but very small crab cake to share. At $18 (as I recall) it was expensive as we ordered a second one (party of 2). One shared salad, 2 crab cakes, 2 bar drinks was almost $100 after tip. Crab cake was good but not worth the hefty price. Though we will try again.

    In the last week, we've met and been lucky to have Anastasia and Sidney do an incredibly attentive job with service. Last night we had a complicated order for 7. Everyone who works at Lumen8 seems talented and fun. The managers have put together a good crew. We loved getting to meet the chef and hear about his background, goals and values for the delicious food you all are preparing. The views are second to none! Thank you all~

    Very nice restaurant! Ran into a small but irritating issue with the hostess at the entrance who seemed to be on a power trip. Wanted to seat us at the unwanted table even though several better tables were empty. we requested and inquired about being reseated to receive the explanation that those tables had been randomly assigned based upon the reservations received during the day. Funny how the hostess of what was otherwise a phenomenal dinner experience can leave a negative impression on the restaurant. We saw this seating experience occur throughout the evening. Something the ownership should observe.

    The food was very good, the service friendly and helpful. It is terrific to have a rooftop restaurant. Hopefully they can figure out a configuration of seating that takes better advantage of the site and the amazing views. And, since the food is meant to be shared, having serving utensil to facilitate the sharing would be helpful. But a lovely evening in all ways. We totally enjoyed ourselves.

    LOVE the location, ambiance and vibe of Lumen8! Beer and wine are awesome and the appetizers (mushrooms and oysters) were excellent but the cocktails were inconsistent and the entrés were very bland and not cooked well. This is the second time we've been and it's a very new restaurant so we will give it some time to sort some things out but it's still a fun experience and the service was AMAZING!

    The spot is awesome! Bustling and lively! Cocktails are exceptional and the service was 5-star. Focus needs to be on steaks: all of ours came the wrong temperature on the rarer side. The sides were amazing as were the desserts!

    Staffing of course is the concern we all have. Timing and delays were not painful but not fun either. Pork chops were great as was dessert. Thier "large" charcuterie was anything but larage. It was good and interesting. Nice wait staff with lots of smiles. We will go back.

    Wow, what a great time! We went and celebrated my best friends birthday! Making a reservation was easy and efficient. Each person I spoke with was very nice. We had a reservation inside but they were so understanding when we wanted to move outside. Very great service! Anastasia was so sweet and made it such a wonderful experience! Will definitely be coming back!

    The experience was just ok. The staff was nice and attentive. The tables felt cramped and the food seemed "manufactured". It looked and tasted like the kitchen staff is back there reading a recipe book and trying to make the dishes look like what they see in the pictures. It didn't feel or taste like there's a chef involved trying to impress the guests with his/her experience and skill. Keep trying LUMEN8!

    Our cocktails were tasty, but I wouldn't order the appetizer again. We would've stayed for entrees if there were more vegetarian options. Our server was very friendly, but very apologetic for the long wait. The view from the rooftop was nice, but there was a group occupying most of the space. The decór, lighting, music, and even dishware gave the restaurant an upscale tone, but many of the patrons were in shorts and flip flops. Overall, I'm glad I went, but I don't think I need to go back.

    Most of the food was exceptional. The two beef dishes were tough and I shared that with the waitress. Most of the drinks were excellent but the martinis were skimpy. on my previous visit I had felt the noise was hard and made it difficult to communicate but I was with older adults. This time I was with younger adults and teenagers and they also had difficulty hearing so I think there is an acoustic issue.

    This place was amazing. As soon as you wake in from the elevator, you are stunned by the welcoming atmosphere and beautiful views of our city and the mountains. Our experience was incredible from start to finish. The host and servers were so kind and welcoming. The outdoor patio is one that I want to visit frequently. Happy hour offered great deals and the food was incredible. There is something for all ages here and our 6 year old daughter really enjoyed the mac and cheese and root beer float. We spoiled ourselves and splurged on oysters, bison and incredible dessert. We are looking forward to our next visit. The only small recommendation is lowering the volume of the music both on the patio and inside the restaurant. I'm only 41 years old and I found it to be a bit loud, though certainly that is just my opinion and it did not take away from our experience.

    Drinks were terrible, mostly ice and juice and very little alcohol. For $14-16 as the average drink price, I would expect a better quality drink that would last more than a few sips. Staff was great, just appears inexperienced bartenders or their direction is to withhold the pour per drink.
