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!

    The Limelight Suppler Club & Lounge has lost its luster. What used to be the perfect restaurant for a nice meal before theater is now an overpriced hodgepodge of poorly prepared and served small portions of bland fodder.

    If you've got DCPA tickets and need a bite to eat before, the Limelight is your place. Service is efficient and mindful of curtain times, food is very good and continental portions so you don't feel heavy before the show, and what could be better than to take 20 steps outside the door and you're at the theatre! Maybe the best part is the Limelight is open late so after the theatre or concert you can duck in for coffee and dessert and wait out the traffic.

    I dine often at The Limelight when I'm attending a DCPA performance and it's always a treat. I was there with a friend last Saturday. Our server couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. I normally enjoy my lunch but this time was a bit disappointed. I decided to try something new - the steak sandwich with fried onions and bacon jam. My entree wasn't up to The Limelight's normally high standards. There was very little steak and what there was was quite fatty. Bacon jam was almost non-existent. I think the next time I go I'll stick to either the burger or the lamb pita (both of which I've had numerous times and been happy with). The steak sandwich is not recommended.

    Our dinner reservation was an hour before the show, so we played it safe and ordered appetizers and drinks only. I ordered the “boneless” chicken wings chipotle teriyaki, with sesame carrot salad. The shaved carrot salad was very good, but the chicken drummettes "w/bone", although attractively presented, were tough. My husband's pork belly sliders were big on the bun, but scant on the pork. I could not taste the pork at all. We ordered a crab cake, which was good. Specialty drinks on the drinks menu were in the $8 range; however, our martinis were $12. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant and its Mid-Century modern design. The staff was very pleasant.

    This was our second visit and again it was great. Last time we had no reservation but the friendly staff managed to find a space for us. This time we had reserved and had a lovely table. Food is great, sensible portions so when you go to a show in the theatre you don't feel bloated and uncomfortable. Great location for a pre theatre meal of course

    My sister and I buy season tickets to the Colorado Ballet as something we enjoy doing as sisters. We attend 2 pm Saturday matinee performances and always have lunch first at The Limelight. We can enjoy lunching together as sisters and catching up on everything and never worry about being late for the ballet performance. The food is always lovely and the wait-staff courteous and friendly. Perfect location to the theaters in the Performing Arts Center.

    We made reservations prior to a play on a Sunday night. The restaurant was not full, but service was very slow. Took about 15 mins to get a glass of wine, when the bread basket came (after we had to ask for it) it had 3 rolls (we were a party of 4). The waiter seems put out with requests we made (and we were not demanding - we had to ask him to take our order after 20 mins!). The food was very good - but very disappointed with the service.

    Having dined at Limelight several times...we have learned not to order three courses...we have even cut it down to two...this time we ordered ONLY an entree, thinking if we had time we would get a dessert. We knew what we wanted when the waitress came to the table and ordered promptly, reminding her we had a 6:30 show. We arrived and seated at 5:20 pm and received our only item at 6:00! It was not that busy...only the main dining room had guests and not all of the tables were full. Other than the conveience, I see no reason to dine at the Limelight if you are going to a show.

    This is a very pleasant restaurant for a meal before seeing any of the shows at the DCPA. I have been here before and had found the food to be served quickly and to be quite good. This time the service was slower than I remembered. Even though we were there 2 hours before the performance we were attending, we did not get out of there until 15 minutes before the performance. I recomment their Butternut Squash Soup, it is very good. Their appetizers are quite good as well. The desserts are to die for! Our entrees: Sea Bass and Filet Mignon were dry and overcooked. Will try something else next time.

    Pretty disappointing experience. Food was bland, VERY expensive for the serving size, waiter didn't return often (water was only filled once--when we sat down!). We thought this would be convenient to the Buell for a nice meal before our theater tickets, but we'll never go there again. Our sandwich and salad, chintzy appetizer and 2 hot drinks cost $75!!! OUCH!!

    I was at Limelight with a good friend for lunch, Saturday, January 25th before seeing Evita. I was back at Limelight for dinner that same night with 2 other friends before seeing Dianne Reeves. The location of Limelight is perfect for those of us when we are attending any of the many wonderful productions at DCPA. They have reduced the size of the restaurant and changed the configuration to tall tables in the east portion of the restaurant. Now they've added an outdoor coffee/beverage booth. Thank you, Limelight! Keep up the good work.

    This is the place to dine if you have plans to attend the DCPA and only want to park once. It is across the plaza (30 feet) from the Buell Theatre. If you plan to see a production and have dinner first, I would recommend reservations at least 2 hours before the curtain time. We had reservations at 5:30 and tickets for Evita at 7:30. When we walked in the dining room was fairly empty, but by 6:15 it was packed. Most orders go in at the same time, so the people who sat down at 6:15 and after were rushed to finish in time. I would recommend the Lemon Thyme Chicken entree, delicious. We got our dinner in plenty of time, and strolled over to the theater by 7:15. A bit pricey, no surprise.
