consistently excellent – We have been dining at Lumiere since it opened four years ago, and it just keeps getting better. The food and service are better than anything downtown without the attitude, pretension and parking hassles.
What a treat – Took my boyfriend for a fancy dinner on our trip to Boston last summer. Food was terrific, ambience graceful without snobbishness, and the service was good. I did feel like we were shunted slightly because of our age (early 20s) and that seems to happen at many a restaurant but all in all it was a terrific dining experience and we will certainly go back on our next trip to MA.
still hungry – Food was good - but not a great value in terms of quantity vs. cost. The salad we ordered were a few leaves of greens ..the salmon was pricey and a very tiny portion came in a large plate. Theplace is a room decorated by white sheets of cloth hanging ..not too imaginative. was advised to make reservations and guarantee by credit card - but as we sat for our entire meal, 40% of the place was empty. A bit on the snobby side I'd say..
Fix the service, please! – Terrific food, nice atmosphere, but I have rarely seen service as rude... The maitre d' was unnecessarily snobby, and the waiter was much the same. A real disappointment in terms of overall experience.
Tremendous tastes – The menu has wonderful choices - steak tartare, seared scallops, chilled corn soup with crabmeat, Niman Ranch steak, foie gras, and more. Our server suggested a tasting menu so we could sample them all as well as some surprises. Perfect food, deep and lingering tastes, and perfect service. A well chosen wine list complements the food and vice versa. Save room for dessert - the chocolate thing and the rhubarb napoleon with creme fraiche are killer!
