“Excellent food and wine pairing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We had a Sunday night dinner at Luma. 7 course with wine pairing plus coffee. The dinner started with wine and appetizers (amuse-bouche)
The food was excellent, the pairing was great. The service was outstanding and overal we had a very very pleasant experience. Thumbs up, Jason Bangerter and Luma!

“Relatively fine dining experience, in a semi-casual atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Luma provides a good balance between great food and atmosphere that will be accessible to a wide variety of people.

What I liked: Location in the Entertainment District, modern décor and design, good mix of people (students, girls nights out, dates, romantic dinner), comfortable seating arrangement. The menu has enough options that most people should find something to their liking. Modern flavours and slightly unusual variations on dishes. Attention to food allergies/sensitivities and willingness to adapt dish accordingly. Friendly service. High end food, without being snobbish

What could be improved: Service was a little bit on the slow side but other than that, no complaints

“Pricey but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Everything was great. The service was helpful and attentive without being overwhelming. The food was delicious and by far some of the best we have had.

“Good Food However Service Was Slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Went for lunch with a client. I had the steak frites and the cut of meat was good, in fact the food was good including my house salad that was fresh. I liked the natural light coming from the large windows. I didn't enjoyed the slow service, very slow service however. The restaurant was not busy.

“Fun and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I visited this restaurant with colleagues and had a very enjoyable evening. The food was very good (especially the sweetbreads) and wine was excellent. The service was also well above average.
