We decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and eat here, and we're so glad we did. It was a really cool experience, sitting in the quiet darkness with the little table lanterns and big heaters sprinkled throughout. The food was outstanding. We had the giant pretzel (yum!), a burger, the turkey meatball sandwich and the jerk sausage sandwich. All were outstanding and the staff was super efficient and friendly.

The new ordering system requires the first person at the table to put in a credit card number. This was not the case a few weeks ago which allowed everyone to order separately. It complicates things at the time of check-out with everyone's order on one ticket. If this continues I may have to stop patronizing Light the Lamp.

First time dining at this restaurant. We really like the ambiance. The food and drink price was reasonable and taste good. I know that the waitresses worked really hard but the reason for the score was because there was no initiative to explain the dipping sauces that were served, and the online menu app was confusing. Not sure if we are coming back here.

I originally did a 5:15 reservation and it sent me an email saying it was confirmed. However, an hour later I received a text saying that time slot was full. I was able to make a 5:30 reservation but it was weird that it originally told me 5:15 was available when it wasn't.

We love Light the Lamp. Food is delicious and we love the app only ordering system. Unfortunately they had a major plumbing issue that evening which dropped the rating. They were working dilegently to fix it

After a rocky start (ordering online at the table was problematic, and we did not want that kind of restaurant experience in the first place), Jessie, a real live waitstaff person, took over and saved the day! The food was delicious! And their brewery beer (I had the "Power Play") was perfect. First time visit, and looking forward to returning.
