A lot of potential but just not good food
Submitted Wednesday, June 24, 2009 - 4:42pm [Dine in]

Been there twice with my family. Each time tried something different. at the end there's no escape: Their food is just not good.
There wasn't a single dish that was realy enjoing. Not the irish stew. Not the butter chicken. not the BLT sandwitch that for some strange reason was served with melted cheese.
We'll not come back.

Lumiere2551 W. Broadway, Vancouver

That was our first vesit to the new Lumiere.
We dined at the old Lumiere several times and where always very impressed: The atmosphere, service and mainly an awsome food: With each bite you know that the chef was really doing everything so you' feel special.

Now we decided to try the new place to celebrate our anniversary.

Ambience: I didn't like the new design: Darker, less intimate than the old place.

Service: Why did we have to ask for break 3 times? And after getting it still ask for butter twice??

Menu: 3 options: 6 course tasting menu for $135, 9 courses for $185 or fix prix (3 courses) for $98. But apparently a specific combination of the fix prix is only $55. Strange.

Food: Thais is where the true issue is. When you go to a place with that reputation and with those prices you must come with certain expectations: It must be special, it must be tasety and for sure you'll start with some freshly baked bread.
So we where wrong: When we finally received the bread, it was from Terra Bread (why don't they bake it in house like expected?) and it was dry (morning bread??).
None of the courses was outstanding. We started with prawns and pork belly and mussels. It's not that they was terrible but not a bit exciting.
We continued with Duck (my wife) and the beef dish. The beef was really disappointing.
Dsserts were ok.

One more thing: I ordered vodka martini with olives. Why the hell did they serve it with unpitted olives? I almost broke a tooth:)

I don't see a reason to return.

Disapointing - Don't deliver to promise
Submitted Wednesday, March 26, 2008 - 6:30pm [Dine in]

My wife and I went out for dinner.
From the outside it looks great: Small, great menu.
Starters were good but main were less than ok - dry and boring.
Desserts were no more than ok.
Not a cheap restaurant - seems like owners believe Vancouverites will settle for anything with a French name regardless of the quality.

Huge minus - no bar, limited wine selection, forget about coffee at the end.
Waiter was rude and abnoxious.
Also - restaurant very noisy and crowded.

We won't be back.
