I've given Luma a couple of tries but have always come away disappointed. There are three other restaurants on/near Park Ave that are much better. Luma is one of those corporate investment that's mainly style over substance. It seems the owners calculated a theme and formula that's supposed to maximize the ego. It's a classic marketing restaurant, all sizzle, little substance. While this formula has resulted in a popular restaurant, it's not because the food or wine is particularity good. The menu is imaginative, but that's the ?style?. The wine list is extensive, but that's part of the formula. However, neither the food, wine or service is as good as you can get within walking distance of Luma. It's not even a particulate beautiful setting, but I'm sure they spent lots of money on it. Do yourself a favor and visit three much more rewarding restaurants nearby: Cafe Du France on Park Ave, 2 blocks to the South; Chez Vincent on New England, 3 blocks to the West, and my favorite, Jardins, two blocks to the North on Park Ave. Ok, they are have French names, but they are welcoming and easy, and make a night on beautiful Park Ave much more enjoyable and delicious.
Pros: Great location
Cons: Parking - plan on valet, food, wine and service only average
