We are checking out a few towns in FL over the next year or so for a snowbird home. Dinner at Luma cemented WP as our #1 choice. And then when we found out they also have Prato down the street, well, why look anywhere else?

With the perspective of the famous New-Yorker-cover, one might think the only thing in all of Florida is Disney and Miami. So the last thing you expect is a small-town central restaurant that could compete in any foodie big city you might name. Such is Luma.

First, we were surprised that they were open late on a Monday night and that we were greeted warmly despite the hour. We didn't get that "but for you we could close" vibe. By contrast, our waiter was friendly, engaged and service was excellent.

There were four of us, including two teens, and we were all enraptured by every.single.thing we ate. The pineapple curd dessert was the most memorable thing for me. But the fish, the caramelized onion pasta, the cauliflower soup, really, literally, every dish was special and creative and beautiful to look at and entirely delicious.

All kidding, aside, it tells me a lot about Winter Park that a restaurant of this caliber and creativity has been open in town for eleven years! Lucky WP. I cannot wait till househunting begins in earnest.

Found via TripAdvisor and OpenTable....reviews were great and I love Park Avenue so booked it. We arrived an hour early and relaxed in the very comfortable lounge area. Cocktails and service were wonderful. Do try the Truffle Popcorn for something to nibble on. We requested and were sat at a table outside. Our server was extraordinary, but they seem to assist one another as well. Food incredible...what a great Chef! We had both the flank steak and the scallops and shared! The best of both worlds. Salad was amazing, too. I live in South Florida, but hope to make a trip back for another opportunity to dine here in the not too distant future. Dinner celebration could not have been more magnificent...and they topped it off with champagne and dessert.

This meeting was bringing all of my Partners to my town so Luma was an easy choice for one of the dinners. One of my Winter Park favorites for years. A restaurant that consistently performs both with the food and with the service. A place you can bring foodies with confidence

After just coming back from Paris, I must say that I had no expectations. I was blown away, with the impeccable service and the outstanding food. The knowledge and the helpfulness of the staff is on the level of the highest European establishments.
Guys you should be very proud of yourselves .
Thank you

Outstanding food, fully worthy of the finest restaurants in the nation. Outstanding wine list, organized in groups by price ($22, $32, $42, $52). Tables are quite close together -- you will get to know your neighbors, and their dishes. Our only complaint was the dim lighting, but it made for nice photos. 8;)
