Celebration of Food
This intimate restaurant was opened by a renowned Canadian chef to celebrate his passion for good food. Soft lights and muted gold tones amidst dark wood chairs and accents set the mood for the evening. The cuisine stands out on its own made with the best local ingredients. The delectable dishes are prepared with a heavy French influence and some Asian aspects thrown in. Formal dining with exceptional service is expected and delivered at Lumiere.
Try a Little, Taste A Lot
Guests can order a la carte, from the bar menu or try a testing menu with many courses. The three tasting menu options include Vegetarian (six courses), Chef’s Menu (six courses), or the Signature Menu that includes 10 to 12 courses. Each of the tasting menus feature a dessert and les Mignardises – a sweet tray. Meals are market-based as the menu choices reflect what is fresh and in season in the Lower Mainland. An equally impressive and lengthy wine list is offered along with a sommelier service for those who have difficulty choosing the wine that goes perfectly with their meal. For visitors who want to try the Lumiere experience in a more casual atmosphere, the bar and lounge area is suited for elegance. But if you are in for a variety of foods, the a la carte and tasting menus are only available in the dining room.
Illuminating Lumiere Honours
Since opening in 1995, Lumiere has been hailed as the place to eat in downtown Vancouver. The well-respected Zagat guide has bestowed the title of Most Popular Restaurant in Vancouver to this well-deserving establishment. Receiving the designation of Relais Gourmand in 2000 – one that is only given to select establishments across the globe - Lumiere is irrefutably a gourmet experience that should not be missed.
