We ate dinner and breakfast in this restaurant. The breakfast was good but nothing outstanding. The dinner was quite pricey even by Santa Fe standards. I did have a very good glass of wine and the service was excellent. I just felt the food was average in its presentation and lacked a wow factor that would make me come back.... More

I am always impressed with this restaurant and the chef however the menu for Restaurant week was disappointing and lacked imagination. The scallops and the salmon were overcooked and having eaten at La Posada the night before and had a wonderful meal including the best salmon I have eaten in the world I had hoped Luminaria would live up to...

We popped in for an after-dinner cocktail and ended up getting the Berkshire Pork Belly,while sitting at the bar. Luminary staff know their food and their wine. While we don't usually go for "creative" cocktails, we did and were quite impressed.

We are well travelled, local foodies and wine connaisseurs who have eaten at Luminaria a number of times. Each time, we were disappointed with the quality of the food and the high prices. In spite of this, we gave it another try. This time we are writing a review of our experience. At lunch the dining room had few patrons... More

After excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, I booked this restaurant for Valentine's Day dinner. Despite it seeming to be of less value than the regular menu, we elected to go with the set Valentine's menu. We quickly regretted that decision. I chose the seabass option and my partner chose the steak option for the main course. The salads were arugula based,... More

My friend and I brought out teenage daughters here for Valentine's Day dinner. The restaurant has a super nice " vibe" starting with the hostess desk. The lamb that 3 out of 4 of us had in a fig sauce was delicious. Really nice evening. I guess the only thing that bothered us a little was that when we wanted... More

I have eaten at Luminaria several times, and it's always just about perfect. The service is professional, polite, proper, quick and friendly. The food is consistently excellent. The dining room, and the beautiful outdoor patio in the summer, are perfect. No complaints. Great place!
