Small, cozy restaurant with warm service. Food was of generous portion, delicious and with good presentation. Not overly expensive, will return once in a while.

This is by far the best restaurant in Tsawwassen! The food is so delicious and the service is what one would expect at a top Vancouver restaurant. The presentation of the meal is very appealing, as is the calm atmosphere. We have dined here on multiple occasions and are always impressed!

I eat here at least once a month. Lovely little Italian focused restaurant. The food is not just Italian ... but the preparation and flavorful food represents a kitchen with great pride in great food. No small petite bites here. A real meal served up elegant. Last night I had my favorite dish here ... the Roast Free Range Chicken.... More

European-inspired menu and decor, good wine selection, attentive, detail-oriented staff. Wonderful for date night or a quiet celebration. Make sure to get a reservation. Parking is a little bit of a challenge at times, but the food is always spot on. A little pricey, but always a great experience. They can accommodate large groups; had a company Christmas party here... More

Located in Tsawassen, the restaurant has a good sized, upscale and attractive dining room. Service was attentive and friendly. I had the squid appetizer, which was not deep fried but instead grilled. It was beautifully presented and delicious. The osso buco was a little tough and dry, and the flavours really missed the mark. Something wasn't done correctly. I can't... More

We had a nice evening at Illuminate. The restaurant is cozy and warm and very inviting. We both enjoyed our salads and our entree was hot and delicious. I would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion. Be sure to make a reservation. It's usually full by 7:30 on a Saturday night.

It was a cold wet night and we were warmly welcomed . Even on a week day reservations are recommended--- The roast duck in a cherry sauce was excellent--preceded by a flavourful green salad.

Supurb Italian cuisine at reasonable prices. Excellent fresh salads coupled with a couple of delectable appetizers ( crumbed tiger prawns / mussels were quite sufficient for us. Excellent service lovely traditional "villa"decor sets a nice mood with a couple of enormous circular padded seats making for comfortable group/ family seating arrangements
