Lumiere has been on my "to do" list for ages, and I finally checked it off.
We arrived about 25 minutes early for our seating, but our table was ready and waiting, so we were seated immediately. Our server gave us the regular menus and asked what we'd like from the bar. I declined, but my dining companion ordered a dirty martini.
The regular menu consisted of the various 5-course, 7-course, and grand tasting menus, which looked extraordinary, but we specifically came for the seasonal prix fixe menu. When we asked about this, our server graciously brought us a copy of the seasonal prix fixe menu.
From this I chose a cured salmon starter, a spinach ravioli main, and the opera cake for dessert. Also asked for a the wine pairing.
While we were waiting, we were brought a sample taster of a squash trio which was delicious.
The cured salmon was silky smooth and delicate, and beautifully presented.
The spinach ravioli was perfect, well prepared, tasty, accompanied with the smokiness of pork rillons, the earthiness of the mushrooms, and the crunch of sliced almonds.
The opera cake with maple ice cream was sweet and rich and fabulous.
Our server was superb, friendly, charming, and inviting.
The room was surprisingly small and subdued, but elegant and romantic.
A fabulous experience all around.
