“Late night, after concert meals”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

After attending the Capitol jazz festival all day, my family and I headed back to the hotel to shower and rest up for the next days events. Unfortunately the Luminous in the Westin's lobby was disappointing to say the least. The Servers were great;Dwayne, Lena, however they were short staffed and struggled to wait on several tables. The food was tasteful and porions plentiful. The wait was just not to my satisfaction..wise up General Manager get additional help the first weekend of June....annually!!

“Good drinks, erratic service”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

We waited by the unmanned hostess stand for a few minutes until the bartender noticed us and yelled "Keshia!!!" at the top of her lungs. Keshia hurried out from the back to find us a table. When we told her we were only having drinks, she removed all of the place settings from our table. When we decided to split a piece of pie, too, finding silverware for us seemed to be an issue - in spite of the sea of pre-set tables surrounding us with clean silverware and napkins. Both the pie and the drinks were very good.

“Always good food”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

This is a comfortable, nice restaurant and bar and the food quality is consistently excellent. Service can be a little slow, which is my only reason for a four-star instead of five-star rating.

“Save your time & money -- it's not the web site menu!”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

We learned about this place from Restaurant.com and were excited to try the menu we saw on the restaurant's web site. Well, guess what ... it's not the same menu and the food is nothing special. I had the calamari appetizer and my wife had the crab soup. The calamari was slightly undercooked and just barely warm. When you touched it with a fork, the breading fell off. The crab soup was bland. My wife's trout entree was better, served with a tasty cole slaw. My lamb ravioli was just OK ... 5 small ravioli for $22, with nothing else on the plate. Our server, April, was very nice, but things took longer than they should have since absolutely no one else was there! Do yourself a favor ... go somewhere else.
