The restaurant is in a row of half a dozen other restaurants. With all the lights and signs, the area looks very festive at night. Illuminate is a higher-end restaurant with fantastic food. Great for small gatherings.

Eaten here several times, whenever I am in the area. Roland Smith (owner - head chef) continues to keep the menu alive, and we haven't had a bad dish yet. His beef carpaccio is the best I have ever had anywhere in the world, worth the return trip by itself. The short ribs are the best my wife has ever... More

By far the best fine dinning in Tsawwassen. The veal is so tender, the other Italian dishes are among the best in the Vancouver area. Great wine list. Very romantic getaway!

This was Saturday night and it was fortunate that we had reserved a table for four, because the restaurant was very busy. They have an interesting menu and a very good wine list, as well as some interesting beers. Going around the table, we had Osso Buco - good but not outstanding; grilled Romaine heart - very good, Tuscan Chicken... More

Fantastic dinner at Illuminate tonight. Steak was fantastic (best ever - so says my dinner companion) and goat cheese pasta dish was superb. Roland and his team always hit it out of the park.

Illuminate is the best restaurant South delta has to offer. The food and staff are consistently excellent across our 4 visits at different times and years. It can be a little pricy for some but well worth every penny. If trying this restaurant on the weekend make sure to make reservations as it is a small place and can fill... More

I love to wander in after a long day at work and sit at the bar. It's fun to watch Roland and the crew put together the fare for the evening.. love the Baratta salad and whatever fish is fresh that day. The service, the food, the wine......it's all worth every penny. I highly recommend Illuminate for that special dinner... More

It's pricey and it's worth it. I really love their food. Their coconut prawns are a MUST try. I've been there a few times and every time we've been extremely satisfied with the food. Service is good. Only place they lose points is that it can be a little cold.

The portions are small but the prices aren't. Nice atmosphere and good service however. Probably won't be back.
