With its provocative blend of European sophistication, modern French sensibilities and Westcoast innovation, Lumière cuisine speaks a language all its own.  Chef Daniel Boulud and Lumière's Executive Chef Dale Mackay (two of only 160 Grand Relais & Chateaux Chefs in the world) have captured the imaginations and palates of fine food lovers from all over the world.

At Lumière, the world stands still as extraordinary service and sublime cuisine promise guests the culinary trip of a lifetime - each and every time.


Lumière enters its second decade in Vancouver with a remarkable new partnership with Daniel Boulud and Dinex.  Based in New York City, Daniel is committed to a continued presence in the Lumière kitchen, both in person and in daily consultation with rising star Executive Chef Dale Mackay.

Long considered one of Vancouver’s finest dining destinations, Lumière is an eclectic blend of European sophistication and modern French cuisine prepared by Executive Chef Dale MacKay under the guidance of Chef Daniel Boulud. Since the new partnership with the owners of Lumière already a dining destination for over 10 years and, a Relais & Chateaux property, the restaurant underwent a complete redesign. Lumière décor concept brings this beloved Vancouver destination into its second decade with a fresh, modern appeal. The new look is in keeping with the emphasis on local seasonal cuisine presented in sophisticated, contemporary style. The 45-seat jewel box of a space, which serves dinner only, offers the comfort of a private residence with an intimacy of scale and attention to surface details. The bar area is intimate, backed in Zebrawood and lit by individual crystal pendants. Lumière, an unparalleled Canadian dining experience.
