Very nice and classy place. I like to take my girlfriend here on special occasions. I usually get the bass because I am a vegetarian. Also their sides, esp the fries, are delicious.

Probably the best rating I can give for a restaurant week experience. I came here for restaurant week and it was great. They were so accommodating to my vegetarian dining companion, the service was spot on. It was surprising to find such a elegant dining experience in this space. The whole staff is incredibly knowledgeable and professional, superb customer service. The food was well made and I loved my chocolate dessert. It is pretty pricey so not sure I will be back quickly but I would definitely do restaurant week or their weeknight prefixe again.

Lumiere never disappoints. The cuisine is exquisite and the service is excellent, except during Restaurant Week, when they have to bring in extra waiters who don't meet their usual standards.

Quite honestly, this could be the best French restaurant we have been to in the Boston area. The soups are transcending...everything is expertly prepared and presented.The scallop dishes are always amazing with such beautifully balanced flavor. Chef Michael Leviton prepares every dish imaginatively and flawlessly with perfect seasoning throughout. Although there are usually three to six choices on the menu for each course one might think that not to be enough. My problem is there are too many choices as each offering is one I want to have. The service is superb without being in your face. Every staff member is extremely knowledgeable about the menu. Wine list is has something for everyone. The dining room is very pleasant, understated and you can hear the person you are dining with. Basically, its pretty close to perfect

Some of the best food my wife and I have ever tasted, anywhere. And we eat out a lot. Chef Michael Leviton is a genious at layering flavors, so you taste rich flavors of meat, vegetables, infused oils, herbs and spices, in a flavor symphony so harmonious it's incredibly delicious. On Sunday-Thursday the Prix Fixe menu provides a more affordable way to taste these amazing flavors. You can pay a lot more at fancy downtown restaurants, but you won't get better food!

Chef's tasting menu was fantastic, however the kitchen got hit with a huge rush when we ordered so we waited a bit for our first course. Everything was worth the wait however!
