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!

    Limelight is across from the Buell theater which makes it very convenient when attending a show. Their service is incredibly slow which was very disappointing.

    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!

    Dined on 8/8/2014
    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 on 7/22/2014
    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.

    I've been to this restaurant 1-2 other times. I do love the colors and decor and the feel. Maybe because it was summer and a slow season, but they had a limited menu, and the wine we ordered wasn't available. The waitress was nice. Food was average.

    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.

    I'm not sure what has happened. This used to be one of my favorite restaurants because not only did it have great food and wonderful service but it is also close to the theaters and concert venues. This experience wasn't good. The food was less than average, the dining room was stifling hot while the bar area was cool, the service was spotty at best. I may go back just because of its location, but it's not an inexpensive restaurant, so I may just look a little harder for something else close by.

    We had reservations before an event at the Buell Theatre. Due to a crawl on the freeway we were a half hour late for the reservation, and only an hour before the play. The staff bent over backward to make sure we had a great dinner, and made it to the play with 10 minutes to spare.

    Limelight has a convenient location, and they provide fast service for theater-goers. The service is very polite. The ambiance is great. But, oh my goodness, the food is terrible to the point of being insulting. I had the corn chowder soup to start and it was fine. I had the crab cake appetizer as my entree, and it was awful. I expected lumpy and flaky fresh crab. What I received tasted like canned crab that spent too much time in a food processor. It looked like a crisp hockey puck and was complete mush inside. To add to the insult, it was served with a side of food service quality (think Country Buffet or Denny's) tartar sauce. I'm disappointed to say I wouldn't feed it to my dog. I still can't believe the sad lack of quality.

    We ate for the first time at the Limelight Supper Club. We attended a show at the Denver Performing Arts Complex so the location was ideal. Most of the reviews I had read were very positive so we were excited to try this restaurant out. The menu selection was quite limited, but the cocktail and wine lists were extensive. Our waitress was personable and attentive. The entrees were a mixed bag. My chicken was moist and tasty; however, my husband's meat was very dry and tasteless and the plate presentation was less than impressive. Our dessert was just so-so. Overall, the convenient location is not a big enough plus to overcome a disappointing experience. We will try a difference restaurant within the complex next time.

    The service and wine list were excellent, as usual, but the price of entrees has spiked. Three scallops, some baby carrots and peas cost $27. The food was well-prepared and tasty, but the portion was equivalent to a small appetizer. My wife shared a Ceasar salad with me and had an appetizer, and we enjoyed two glasses of wine each. The bill was $96+. We shan't return, which is a shame because we have enjoyed eating at Limelight for years before theater.

    We really love this place! The food is excellent and the service is impeccable. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. We never had an empty water glass, the delicious food arrived in a timely manner and overall I'd give this restaurant an outstanding grade!. The fact that it is located so near the theaters and the symphony make it an ideal spot to dine before a performance. I enjoyed our dinner there more than the brunch, but I did think paring the avocado salsa with the quiche was brilliant. And I must comment on the butternut squash soup! There can't be a better butternut squash soup anywhere in Denver! Superb! Can't wait to go again!

    I was disappointed with this restaurant. While the location is great for attending shows, the portions were skimpy (I left hungry, even after trying to fill up on bread and butter), the service was slow and the seating was uncomfortable. The chairs might be good for patio furniture, but not for a first class restaurant. Tim David

    This was our first visit to the restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had tickets to a show that evening and having noticed the restaurant going to other shows, prefiously we decided to have dinner before the show. My wife and I both felt we had a full and enjoyable evening and plan to do it again. In the past when going to a show, we would have an early dinner in our neighborhood; but from now on dinner will be a the Limelight Supper Club for sure. Food and service was terrific!
