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!

    Service was super friendly and helpful. We didn't feel rushed, and we both appreciated being able to linger over a wonderful meal before going to the symphony to hear a wonderful performance. Food was great as always -- I highly recommend the truffle-fries, and one serving is plenty for two to share. The wine selection is commendable, and I've never been disappointed with a glass of wine recommended by the wait-staff. All in all, the Limelight is a great spot to dine before the show or symphony or opera. Enjoy . . . and then a short walk to enjoy.

    We've been to the Limelight on a few occasions because it is so convenient for the Denver Theaters. We were disappointed at this latest dinner. The menu has changed, which is fine. The Caesar salad and mussels were very good. Definitely enjoyed them. The scallops and the truffle fries were highly over-salted. My wife, who likes salt found it way too much. The "home-made" ice cream tasted bland, very little vanilla flavor. I think we'll try another restaurant for our next visit to the theaters.

    BEST PLACE FOR DINNER BEFORE DCPA PERFORMANCES. LENGTH OF TIME TO BRING CAPPUCCINO/COFFEE AFTER MEAL....TOO LONG AND RIDICULOUS. WAITERS RUSHED AT END PF MEAL FOR CHECKS AND COFFEE....FOR PEOPLE TO GET T SHOWS...EVEN IF WE ARRIVED AT 5:30...TWO HOURS SHOULD BE ENOUGH FOR DINNER WITHOUT A LAST MINUTE DELAY THEN RUSH...

    My Mom and I dined here after seeing Kinky Boots at the theater. Despite arriving, a half hour early for our reservation, the hostess was able to seat us right away. The server was knowledgeable about the food as well as very engaging and friendly throughout the entire evening. A wonderful dining experience and one I'm sure we will revisit on future trips to the theater.

    ellie
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    Limelight is THE best location for DCPA. But...The service could be more alert and attentive. ...especially with ticket/performance time just ahead. The enhancements around entrees are shrinking....tiny portions of potatoes and other things served with main course... weird.. Paying extra to share a course is ridiculous. Prices are high enough. Since some dishes are enough for two, the extra plate and splitting a dish should not be charged extra.

    Almost missed the show because the kitchen at this restaurant that only opens to serve dinner before DCPA evening productions, couldn't keep up. When we did get our food, far later than the parties at nearby tables who ordered after we had, it was sub par. Steak was closer to an Omaha steak than a $30 filet, and missing its sauce; the fish was overcooked. The limelight is convenient to the theatre, but there is much better dining a block or two away. Maybe we caught them on bad night.

    First I will never go back again. I keep going back thinking it's going to be better. But it's not. The food is mediocre at bestThe only thing good on the menu was the truffle fries. The waiter was excellent. But it has nothing else to recommend it.we will never go back.The only reason I said it had a notable wine list is because the website required me to Filion something in that blank.

    Went here before a theater show. Menu looked good on line. Had reservations. The place was only 1/4 full but it took 30 minutes to get our food which made us rush through our expensive meal to make our show. The portions were extremely small and the prices high! Service was good but it did not make up for the rest. Would never go back. Food was only marginal in taste.

    We walked in an hour late for our reservation due to traffic and the kitchen staff had already been moved to the other restaurant. The host / manager? quickly let us know that he would whip up whatever he could for us so that we could eat before seeing the Blue Man Group. This was a huge delight and I would definitely go back again! AMAZING!

    I've avoided Limelight for years, but some friends wanted to go before an event recently. Kevin Taylor has become well known for feeding captive audiences with astounding indifference. Two of us had the tuna appetizer; it looked as if a can of cat food had been turned out on the dish. We also had a cauliflower and a butternut soup; all cream, no flavor. No discernible cauliflower or squash. Another friend had the gnocchi; stuck to her teeth. A final friend said his crab cake was serviceable. Our server was, however, quite friendly and knew what he was doing. But I'm done with the KT restaurants. Maybe he needs to get out of the business.

    We selected this restaurant for convenience prior to a performance in the Performing Arts center. Program started @ 7:30 and our reservation was for 5:30. We notified our Waiter, David, and he did a terrific job of coordinating the order, service and whole dining experience so allow us to leave on time. David was terrific with his menu and wine list knowledge. One note of caution - our reservation was on a Friday night which David said was a difficult night regarding weekend traffic and the various performances. At 5:30 we were the second table seated. By 5:45 the place started filling up and was full by 6:00. Make your reservation at the earlier times on a Friday evening.

    Limelight is an excellent pre-theater or any pre- performance choice in downtown Denver. The food is excellent, and the experience would be more relaxed if one went on a night when there are no performances. THe food is that good! No need to combine it with anything else, just enjoy the dinner.

    We always dine here when we see a show at the Buell. We have been subscribers for the last 4 yrs. The new menu was a huge disappointment. My entree was the large portion gnocchi. There were maybe 4 gnocchi and 6 mushrooms. When I complained to the manager, he said others had also commented on this item. He was kind enough to comp us desserts which were larger than my entree. Not sure if we will return.

    Make no mistake; this place is for pre-theater dining first and foremost. It was empty when we arrived, jammed during dinner, and dsestered when we left for our curtain. There also seemed to be poor communication between the front and back of the house. Pacing left much to be desired. We were served our salads fist, and then we All had a long wait for entrees to be served. When they came, the serving people were very ruched to get everyone's order to the table before they cooled off. B those thugs as they may, our orders were cooked are requested, and the meal was enjoyable. Better front-to-back communication is sorely needed.

    We had tickets for a 7:30 show at the Buell, and I used the online app to make a reservation, which worked out great. Hint: get a 6:00 reservation for a 7:30 show so you don't feel rushed. Staff was gracious and appropriately attentive (read: not overly so). The menu was somewhat limited, but each offering was a gem. Perfect gourmet fare; I only wish we'd had time for dessert!

    The menu was different than what was online, we basically had to settle for what we liked most, not what we actually liked. In addition, the waiter was not helpful, when asked what he would recommend, he replied "everything", which is the same as saying nothing. Then when giving us a "minute" to think about our order, he was MIA for 15 minutes! Nothing like keeping a pregnant woman from eating on her anniversary... We will not be returning.

    Dined before theater - hint, reserve for 6p, not 6:30p for a 7:30 performance. Service was stressed, tho for us still excellent, when the 6:30 mass crowd showed up. At 6p we had plenty of time, very pleasant. We avoided dishes previously mentioned as not so good, and what we had was great- iceberg wedge, fries, steak, soup- except mistake in ordering the truly bad bread pudding, have the crème brulee instead. We liked the constant view people watching, the calm and pretty dining area, the large bar area, all very much. Overall not as bad as some have indicated, just be aware of what you will need to do yourself (leave plenty of time, careful ordering) to make it a good experience.

    We dined at the Limelight Sat. night before a performance. There was only 1 other occupied table. The menu had changed since our last time there and they only offered a couple selections of seafood and meat entres. The salmon was dry and overcooked and served on a gelatinous red sauce with a few radishes and 2 asparagus. My husband's steak was served smothered in bernaise, cooked as ordered and tender. His crab cake appetizer was covered in sauce and not very tasty. This will be the last time we dine at Limelight unless some changes are made. Very disappointing.

    I might not be as enthused about this restaurant in another location but it is perfect for its location in the Denver Arts complex. The food is very good and you have the choice of lighter dining for pre-concert/theater. Especially on a busy night at the complex, it sets the scene and the mood for a fun evening out. They know that most people are there with a deadline so you are confident in getting food and drinks promptly.

    Because Limelight is a Kevin Taylor restaurant, I had high expectations - not only for the food, but for the service as well. The service was terrible. It took 15 minutes for our server to notice us and an addition 45 minutes to get a drink before dinner. Some if the food runners looked utterly confused and the staff appeared to be running around like chickens with their heads chopped off. I was highly disappointed.
