A word from Limelight Supper Club & Lounge
This chic, modern venue, centrally-located within the Denver Center for Performing Arts, is a popular gathering place for theater attendees and downtown diners alike. Serving dinner on performance days, as well as brunch prior to weekend matinées, it is perhaps most popular for a quick intermission cocktail. Guests are even allowed to carry a glass of wine back to the lobby of their theatres!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 5/17/2008
    Packed afternoon. Very first special mother daughter musical outing I had taken my 10 year old. Sat outdoors.She wore her best pink dress.At the beginning of brunch the waitress spilled my drink (bloody mary)down my daughters back and COVERED her hair and dress.Manager offered dry-cleaning.They gave us dessert.AWFUL part was they left the dirty towel on the floor by our table during the entire meal,sloppy wet and red which made every other patron know something had happen. no extra napkins-had to get myself. My daughter was mortified and I was embarrassed by the lack of care. Rushed. Food brought on top of each course. Dessert brought before we were finished with meal. 5 star restaurant - 1 star service. Excuses were made. Awful and sad.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 5/15/2008
    We have eaten at Limelight before and had good experiences. Tonight however two of us ordered the filet - it was the poorest cut of filet I have ever had and the other person did not eat his. He personally knows the owner and will be contacting him about this. Also, even though we both left a good portion on our plate, the waiter never asked us about it! I would hesitate to go again based on this experience! It is very convenient as it is right in our theater complex!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 5/15/2008
    I took a friend for her birthday; theatre after. Our meal: a complete disappointment. The salmon: not fresh; the dressing on the wedge had no flavor whatsoever and even after asking for more, still could not bring iceberg up to par. The tomato mozzarella salad was one small tomato slice and came with 2 2" slices of mozzarella. The dessert was the biggest disaster of all: she ordered a caramel walnut tart. The tart was a rock hard graham cracker crust with a thick non-descript layer of fudge. There was one piece of candy on top with a walnut inside. I eat out 4-5 lunches a week and 5-7 dinners; and I will never take a client or friend to this place. Although I eat out a lot, I expect good food always. Disappointing to the max.

    Never filled out a survey before, but we were hoping as season theatre ticket holders this would be our new convenient dining spot before the performances. Unfortunately, menu very limited which would be fine if the few items were above average. Disappointing experience. Hopefully we will hear of improvement and try it again. To their credit they did take my over done filet off our bill, not at our request but on their own discression.

    It was a very good meal and perfect for before/after the theater. The food was good, though perhaps not as outstanding as his other resturaunts. The service was good, but they make sure that you know they don't have time for tea/coffee refills or any "extras" due to the theater schedule.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 5/7/2008
    The waiter needed more experience. We ordered martinis; he didn't know what the house vodka was; we ordered Grey Goose; he came back and said they were out of Grey Goose; he thought the bar vodka was Stoly but came back saying they didn't stock Stoly; the bar vodka was Finlandia. My guest ordered a crabcake and side of asperagus; I ordered a tomato/mozzarella salad, and a crab cake. Everything came at once except my crabcake, and it took quite a while to get our waiter's attention to point out the error (my guest was almost finished with her entire meal). The crabcake came out quickly after that. I thought the quality of the food was excellent.

Staff was attentive and made sure we hit curtain time with no problems. The menu is very well balanced. Something there for everyone's taste. Wouldn't mind seeing a few specials on the menu to offer some changes for the frequent diner. Thanks

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/2/2008
    This restaurant got off to a mediocre start and appears to have only gotten worse. We started tracking service mistakes (over 12 total)after we saw two courses of our food delivered to the wrong table twice in a row, get carried around the dining room and brought back to the kitchen before finding its way back. Service personnel had everyones' orders wrong, not just at our table but at several tables nearby...lack of silverware, cold coffee-spilled all over the plates, one fermented dessert which was promised to be removed from the bill-AND WAS NOT!! This restaurant has the ultimate location- absolutely convenient to those seeing a show at DPAC and yet, we have vowed to walk blocks away to dine at ANY OTHER other restaurant in the future.

    Dined on 5/2/2008
    This was our second visit, since it opened up late last year. Both times our salads came out very quickly, but ended up waiting too long before our main dishes came out. Both times we had to eat quickly, so we wouldn't be late for our concerts. Even with an hour and half of dinning time, both times, we still felt rushed. If we come back, we'll make sure that we allow two hours for our meals, which is a little crazy when we only have two courses.....

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 5/2/2008
    Our entrée's were very good, however both the appetizers and cappuccino's fell into mediocrity. The Crab Louie consisted of smelly chunks of warm crab meat on a few strands of lettuce and pearl tomatoes. We ordered decaf coffee after dinner, only to be told they had none, incredibly. We went with decaf cappuccino, which was not even luke warm, and had no hint of froth. And to think we paid for that. The service, however, was exemplary, and I feel certain if we had complained, our waiter would have rectified the situation. Being under a time crunch to get to the theater, we felt it necessary to forgo the process. Some patrons at the table next to us had the roast chicken, and complained that it was pink and red around the bone.

    Unfortunately, the best thing about this restaurant is its convenient location within the DPCA complex if you are attending a performance there. The food is okay, but not great. The service was very good. It really would be nice if they had really wonderful food, but so far none of the restaurants at that location have been that great. Not sure we will go there again other than for last minute convenience.

    Some of the plates were quite good, e.g., the poached lobster; others like the Caesar salad, which was swimming in too much dressing and soggy, were disappointing. The service was friendly and efficient (although the promised adjustment for the inedible salad was not made on the check). The ambiance is pleasant and the setting ideal for a pre-performance meal.

    The main attraction of this restaurant is location: it is in the Denver Performing Arts Center and so serves the pre-concert or pre-theater crowd. The food was pretty good: lobster was outstanding, pork chop was undercooked but excellent taste. The server was friendly and amazingly efficient. The one really poor aspect is their phone system, which is beyond awful. Also, be warned: not only can you not phone and tell them if you will be 15 minutes late, but it wouldn't matter anyway - they give away tables just 10 minutes after the reservation time.

    We've eaten here a few times over the last few months and the best service was the evening we ate in the bar - the bartenders were fun and helpful (which was not the evening of April 7th). The food is always delicious but the prices are outrageous and the portions small. Our most recent dining experience, April 7th - we ate in the restaurant and asked for a steak knife to cut pork chops and were told the restaurant doesn't have any; also the chef would not allow any substitutions regardless of dietary necessity. Not the kind of service I would expect from a Kevin Taylor restaurant.

    The food was as good as any I've found in Denver. The restaurant is much better than the restaurant it replaced, which might not be saying much, but it's great to have another excellent restaurant in the DCPA complex, in addition to Kevin Taylor's restaurant in the opera house. The ambiance in Limelight is slightly cold, though, again, a great improvement over the previous restaurant in the space. I think you could turn up the music (we were forced to share in the very personal conversation from the next table) and maybe add some bolder art.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 4/1/2008
    My dining companions and I were extremely disappointed. While the food was delicious, the service was horrible. The waiter was slow, rude and cavalier. When the service manager stopped by our table to ask about the food and service, we laid it on him. He apologized and comp'd our first round of drinks. The service continued to decline. He stopped by again, and we laid out the issues. The service never improved. Denver has a lot of "great food" restaurants. It's often the service and the ambience that seal the deal. Limelight struck out big time on both counts. I've not been a fan of the 'decent food, horrid service' Kevin Taylor chain of retaurants that swarm the DCPA area, and in this respect, Limelight did not disappoint.
