    This was the perfect Mother's Day Brunch! The staff were very attentive. The menu had exactly what we were looking for at a reasonable price. The suggestions from our wait staff were spot on. There was the perfect mix of decadence, nostalgia and nutrition. I ordered the British fresh baked scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam to share as an appetizer. It brought me back to my home town of London, UK. The kids were quite impressed! My kids had the Belgian waffles with all the fixings including maple syrup which was not on the menu but was conjured up as soon as my son requested it. There were mounds of berries on top so they didn't even know they were having something healthy ha, ha! I had the Smoked Salmon Eggs Florentine. It came with a side salad of mixed greens, 2 poached eggs with spinach, smoked salmon and Hollandaise sauce on a croissant. I had a cappuccino made to perfection. It was the most delightful Mother's Day that I can remember! We will definitely be back at Luma for our next special occasion!

    Slow service - glad we left lots of time before the play. It was Mother’s Day but restaurant was maybe 2/3 full. Maybe less. Food was not impressive but prices were geared as if it was. I won’t go back - there is too much choice in Toronto to indulge average

    I like the vibe of the restaurant. The washroom were clean however the water was freezing cold. The service was good. We had 2 kids with us and the brought out smaller cutlery and small plates. The food was ok. We had: The luma burger, I wish the mushrooms were cut smaller because they were falling off my burger. The egg benedict, I'm not sure if they were consistent with the type of bread that was used for the it because I saw other tables with different breads. Our bread was super difficult to cut, really hard. The eggs, and the side salad were good though. The mac and cheese, was probably the higblight of the meal. My kids rated this was their favorite. The chicken tenders, I felt they could have been crunchier. Fries could've been crunchier as well.

    Server did not know what accompanied the dishes. I asked if a starch was part of the entree as it did not state it in the menu. She said yes, potatoes are part of the dish. I am a type 1 diabetic and need to pre-bolish insulin. I dosed insulin for potatoes that did not come in time. They did remedy the issue with a side of potatoes, however we had already finished the dinner by that point. Eating side of potatoes on its own was very odd. Food was cooked very well, but a little bland.

    I have modified this review as a result of Luma management reaching out in person to rectify the situation. This was very civilized and left me very impressed. We have been there before before theater and had a great experience so we decided to repeat for The Les Miserables Production on May 10-24. Suffice it to say Our experience was not on par with the last time we were there, and we ran into some issues that left us very frustrated. To be fair, this can happen anywhere. However, we did not expect it to happen to us at this class of establishment. After reading the review that we posted in a summary of the situation, management had the class to reach out in person, and attempt rectify what had happened. For a company to care about each and every one of their reviews and the experience of their patrons, left us very impressed. I will say the salmon with leek sauce was absolutely fantastic which 2 people in our party had ordered. They did have a large party for an event that night which all the staff seemed focused on so I get how things could go wrong. Thank you, luma, for showing class despite an unfortunate situation

    We were seated quickly and our waitress was attentive in the beginning. They kindly split the Caesar salad between us which was appreciated. Our main course was supposed to be Snow crab carbonara. Since we were chatting through dinner, we both realized there wasn’t ANY crab in the dish that we paid more for due to the promise of crab. We mentioned this to our waitress and then we could tell she was avoiding us. When we finally grabbed her attention we were told that since we had not said something sooner and had consumed most of our meal there was nothing to be done. I felt like we were being told that we lied, or that it just wasn’t their problem. Pardon me? You don’t advertise something and then not put the main ingredient advertised into the meal. In addition, the pancetta needed to be cooked more and the peas were raw. Dessert was probably our favourite part of the meal. Chocolate mouse with melted caramel was delicious as was their cheesecake. Even though we had mentioned we needed to be out before 7:30, our waitress was hard to find. We made it to our play with 3 minutes to spare. The ensemble that played live music was nice, but I would not go back. Someone should have made their oversight right, and that wasn’t the case.

    This was our second time at Luma for its new Jazz night. The jazz band was excellent and created just the right atmosphere for a supper club feel. The food was excellent - when it arrived! Service initially was prompt but slowed considerably after we were served our first drinks. The best part of the service was attention to water! Although Luma advertises itself as a seafood restaurant, it is really more of a mixed menu - more continental. We would return - but would keep these limitations in mind.

    Our meals were excellent. The service was very professional, friendly and efficient. We were pre theatre and arrived a little late but were embraced and served with good food and excellent service. We had three appetizers including the shrimp, octopus and steak tartar. All very tasty. Good accommodation for glutin free as well for my celiac friend. Highly recommend.

    Luma consistently delivers good food in a unique second floor venue overlooking King Street West in the heart of the entertainment district. We enjoyed Luma’s twist on a classic negroni to start our evening. Their caesar salad also had an interesting variation which was quite tasty. Mains included beef wellington and the salmon which were both flavourful. The service was friendly and efficient so we were able to make our show in lots of time.

    Unfortunately the food was sub par for it being so expensive for the valentines day meal. The crab was next to impossible to break open, and made a huge mess while trying to remove the meat. That shouldn't be something served on Valentines when people are dressed nicely. The second was also over cooked, and their "wagyu" was nothing of the sort. Unfortunately, it was tough and difficult to chew. Not a cut of wagyu meat. The dessert was also a let down, the chocolat pot de crème didn't taste anything like chocolate, which was strange. For a $400+ meal it was extremely disappointing, I will not be returning for something of that price for mediocre food.
