Look at this as the 5tar restaurant in Tsawwassen. The menu is great along with daily specials(closed Monday) and service is great. We look at this is a treat,not cheap. Extensive wine list but can be pricey.

Well things change in the restaurant world. And I'm happy to report Illuminate Restorante has upped their level of attention to details. I've been back twice since my last review and both times they earned a A+ for all meals served. No more little details missed. The food was fresh, perfectly seasoned, beautifully plated and most importantly -delicious. They are... More

First time visiting this restaurant, it was their 10th anniversary special, 3 course meal for $29.95. The food was very good, nicely presented and cooked perfectly. The decor is Italian but not overdone. The staff were a bit slow but perhaps this was due to the restaurant being full for the anniversary special. We will be back again.

Took advantage of their 10th anniversary special ($30 for 3 course meal) that was soup or salad; veal or salmon or choice of pasta, and; creme brulle for dessert. Illuminate is in a strip mall but is a higher end restaurant. tables are well spaced and serving staff are attentive but not overly so. Meals were cooked perfectly. We decided... More

I was recently given a gift certificate for $100 and decided to use it with my wife. We found the food was very tasty. The service was also very good. Overall it was an excellent experience.

We have eaten here many times since the restaurant opened. We routinely go here. I would urge readers to ignore the snide and irrelevant comments about Tsawwassen posted here by others and focus on the food, service and atmosphere of the restaurant under review.

My wife and I went to Illuminate recently with another couple which was probably our fourth or fifth time there. The ambiance is pretty good for a suburban fine dining restaurant, but definitely not as upscale as you might expect in downtown Vancouver. Call it comfortable. The menu has a good selection of pastas, fish and meat dishes and they... More

This is one of the nicest "fine-dining" restaurants around. The quality of the food is excellent and there are often also quite affordable and excellent specials during the week. The ambience is also upscale but definitely comfortable. If you are looking for somewhere to have a special meal - this is a great choice.

Refined dining with an air of Mediterranean lushness. We've had the house-made pastas, enjoyed the salads made with imagination, wines for any mood. Very accommodating & affordable for family meals, but over-the -top is something that's also done well here

Thank Dee B
