We celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary recently at Lumi over dinner. We did the 10 course degustation and my husband had the matching wines.

What a fabulous meal we had! The food was art on a plate. We’ve done quite a number of degustations in Sydney. Lumi would have to rank as one of the best.

The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. It was not too noisy so we could hear conversation easily. The service was faultless.

All the courses were delicious. We went hungry, and found 10 courses was perfect as a number of the dishes are small snacks. Not only was it gastronomical heaven but all plates were beautifully presented. My husband really enjoyed the wine pairings and was very impressed with the selection.

We honestly couldn’t find fault with any of the dining experience. We’d love to go back for another special occasion. Highly recommended!

Celebrated our 20th Anniversary here and did the chefs menu (14 courses) with the wine pairing. They do allow for a couple of substitutions of there is something that you are opposed to, we substituted the duck for the wagyu beef.

The menu included a wide variety from sea urchin to kangaroo to bread to nicely
paired desserts. I did try the kangaroo and it was delicious. It appears that the menu does change slightly as the menu I viewed inline before going was slightly different when I arrived.

If you can, I recommend adding the wine pairings, 6 wines that begin when you start the main entree portion of the menu. The wines really do bring out the flavor of the food, especially the pasta.

These are small tasting portions but are filling. The cone dish and pasta were my favorite and the desserts were light and a great finish.

The negative— this place is hard to find! Our cab driver drove in circles and finally just told us he couldn’t find it. Give yourself extra time to arrive in case you have trouble locating it.

We ate at LuMi last night and had the 10 course degustation with matched wines. What a truly fantastic combination of flavors and beautiful presentation. Sometimes it’s so nice to go to a restaurant and just be fed not having to choose. We both were perfectly satisfied at the end of the meal and enjoyed all of every dish. What an inspired challenge to merge Japanese and Italian cuisines - two such diverse styles both in taste and presentation. We had Bay Bug served in nori basket followed by cheese and black pepper Agnolotti. WOW! The wine matches were wonderful and a great opportunity to try some different styles. Knowledge of the sommelier was excellent. Great having the open kitchen and seeing such a smoothly run operation.

We went there for Michael's birthday & it was a brilliant restaurant.We did the chef's menu for $150 perperson.Highlights were
miso strone was superb especially the presentation og marbles of vegetable.
Pappardelle of duck & hazelnut was exceptionally tasty. Wagyu was melt in the mouth & the quirky salted geraniums were a highlight.

Went with high expectations and ended up disappointed. Parking is a nightmare so either Uber/Taxi or use public transportation to get there. Nice atmosphere. The food was good but not outstanding for the $$$$ I was expecting better. Tasting menu only option.
