LUMO Bar & Restaurant, South Bridge Road: This was a disastrous dining experience. It went from anticipation, to ambivalence, to outrage, within 3 hours. We spent $1000 amongst 7. Without ado, let’s deep dive into why: 1. We had a server who was new. She...stated it herself. We tried to empathise with her mistakes but soon it became a litany and then everything added up and boom shake the room. 2. We ordered everything on the appetisers' menu to start off with, except the chicken heart, which was the last item . She asked repeatedly if we wanted fries, she kept thinking chicken heart was fries. Guess what? Chicken heart arrived and we didn’t have the heart to send it back. We didn’t order it. 3. She didn’t know what Negroni was. She asked how to spell it. 4. Cocktails were very hit and miss. Some were spot-on great, some looked nothing like the IG pics. Some came entirely without the condiments like sunflower. Clover wasn’t lit up with the cinnamon stick. I asked the server why. She said you got to go to the bar to light it up myself. Which I did. They grudgingly did. 5. Burrata looked awesome but when we cut it open, the consistency was off. It was like a Vanilla ice cream block cut open. We sent that back. Burratas are meant to be soft. 5. All dishes were stand out. Trout was a standing ovation for me. Two servings of lamb was undercooked and we sent that back and they were still pink inside after. My friends didn’t eat it after. Lamb demands good technical skills when cooking as they have a rude smell. Our lamb had that terrible smell. 6. We had 2 free canele's as part of the birthday celebration for our 2 friends. We appreciated the gesture until we tried the jelly at the side which tasted like petroleum jelly. Worse of all, the canele was so hard we couldn’t cut them open. We demonstrated this to the manager, who explained that “Canals” are supposed to be rock hard. They aren’t. We have been around and we know how canale’s should be like. It was OK. It was free. 7. Ok, this one takes the cake. We feedback to the Manager. She was apologetic. The next thing we knew, we had the chef barge out and he asked us what was wrong in total aggression. I explained the litany of reasons. He got defensive. When I mentioned the burrata consistency, he asked which farm I wanted the burrata from. I asked him if all restaurants list down the farms where burratas are from in the menu. That seemed to silence him. 8. By then, the experience was so marred. There was no service recovery. So many terribles outweighed the good. Which was a shame because some of the dishes were really top notch. I was here a year ago and absolutely loved it. What happened? #eatstylishtravelstylishMore

Best seat in the house! Was truly eye-opening to see how Chef Dex paced and orchestrated the dinner to be served. Chef and his team were meticulous in paying attention to the little details when it comes to plating. Each dish was an artwork piece...of its own. The dinner was fantastic and that actually made us kept having subsequent orders, because we wanted to try all of their signatures. Hope to be back real soon!More

A stylish joint with top notch food and cocktails for a great night out. Super central location just a stone’s throw away from the CBD. We have returned a number of times and are always impressed by the warm service and seasonal menus. Besides friends,...we have also hosted business associates here - the area nearer the kitchen we found to be conducive for work meetings too. Overall really well done! Our personal favourites: - Grilled pork rack - Seared scallops - Grilled prawns - Dutch leek with oyster leaf - Lumo cocktail (photo not shown)More

Had a great time here with my friends! The food was a hit - my personal favorite was the pasta in lobster bisque and burnt cheesecake, and my friends really liked the smoked cod fish liver and chocolate fondant with avocado cream. Drinks were awesome,...and the crew was very friendly and attentive. Would definitely return!More

We are trying new places and found this gem! I really like nice cocktails and they exceeded my expectations. Food is definitely not bad- must try would be bone marrow and the beef carpacio!

2nd time there with different food ordered. Overall, not bad but the beef was quite disappointing. There’s a portion with many veins and we have difficulties chewing it and have spit out the beef most of the time. We have feedback to them but they...didn’t offer to replace or offering any discount. Hope this area will be improved.More

Staffs are unattentive, rude and not polite. Was sit at the kitchen counter, not attended by any staffs, only was served when kitchen staffs help to gain attention from them. Only the kitchen staffs are nice and helpful!

It was way too noisy and I could barely hear myself. It was a letdown because I picked this place for the ambience which felt like a noisy bar. the food was mediocre- nth outstanding and the portions were way too small in my opinion-...even for me (I don’t eat alot) and they chased us out after 1.5h of dining (they are rly strict w the timing).More

Ambience: 5/5. Awesome ambience. Feels like you are stepping into some ATAS pub for fine dinning. Very good environment to go dating at with your partner. Food: 4/5. selection is not very large but the main course especially the beef is awesome. So soft and...tender. However the portions feel slightly small. Not that I can complain with the reasonable price. Drinks: 5/5. Large variety of speciality cocktails. Definitely a draw point for those who like alcoholic drinks. Unique taste and delicious. Very beautifully crafted. Location: 4/5. A short walk from Clarke Quay station. Bad if it is raining cause there is parts of it where there is no shelter from the station. Will return again.More

Sultry Lumo has all the right trappings of a romantic eatery. Small, cosy and all decked out in leather black (or I might be wrong – PVC but still achieving that plush look. Dim orange lights that bathe you and the food in romanticism. It’s...clean, simple and elegant. There is a bar area dining where if seated at the bar, there is a cacophony of shakers noises going off. Because of the low ceiling, the acoustics are cackling when the place fills up. There is a hidden back where the open kitchen is. All in all, a Hollywood cinematic noir feel to the entire restaurant. Cocktails are neat. Food is superb. We had the scallops which was succulent and the sea of saucery flavours never too powering. Snapper was dry and totally outshone by the sauce. Asparagus was sweet and tender. The restaurant is rather nondescript so it’s one of those places you’ve passed by many times but failed to take note. And that’s what makes this exciting a discovery.More
