Mother's day brunch 2015

I went here for mother's day 2014 and it was the worst experience I've ever had at a brunch. Food, service, hosts, dining area, orginzation, everything was unsatisfactory. This year we gave it another try and it was an 80% IMPROVEMENT. I was impressed by the organization and the service. They... read more

The buffet was excellent. The service was wonderful. The champagne and mimosas were bottomless. We were seated by a window and the view was breath taken. I will definitely go back.

Our meal and service was awful. There were only 3 tables including ours and it took 40 minutes to get a drink. When I asked manager if there was a kids menu his response was no. No alternatives or suggestions given. I ordered a fish dish and was served steak. When I finally got my ordered meal the fish was... More

The appetizers were okay but never have heard of chicken wings or fried calamari at a Mexican restaurant. The seafood ceviche was decent but no kick in it. I ordered the red snapper, it was cooked nicely with a fresh jicama slaw. My husband had the carne Asada; it was cooked fine (he ordered it medium rare) but it was... More

My girlfriends and I came here for Sunday brunch for a Christmas gathering. The food was exceptional. So much variety and it actually tasted authentic. We ate and drank like there was no tomorrow. Our waiters came often to check up on us and made sure our glasses were always full of mimosas. The mariachi was the cherry on top.... More

I have been to Luminarias several times. It is more like 3.5 stars. The food is good and the price is right too. This is a Mexican restaurant but the brunch carries a variety including an omelette bar, bacon, sausage, potatoes, pasta bar, seafood bar, sliced roast, and, of course, Mexican food. The homemade tortillas are the bomb. The service... More
