We love everything about this restaurant. The service is fantastic. My husband and I always comment about the fabulous food for such a reasonable price. The restaurant always seems busy however many of our coworkers have never heard of it. We have highly recommended it to many of our friends and colleagues.

This was another great dining experience. The food and presentation were excellent. Clint did a great job overseeing the entire restaurant while also being sociable with the patrons. One member of our group was a new-comer to the LL and was very pleased with the overall experience. Keep up the great service, food and atmosphere.

It was great! Food was excellent, as it always is. The service was the best ever! The patio was wonderful; even though it was a really hot day, and we were there early, 6:00, the patio was @70 degrees. They have the best mister/fan system I have ever seen anywhere! I LOVE eating outdoors, and their misting system is so comfortable regardless of temperature, that you can always be outdoors and be super comfortable! And the patio is awesome!

Always a good time. Great to have a neighborhood bar and grill type place.
Service good as usual food was really good.
Good place to relax have a good dinner with a good wine.
Probably eat there twice a month would do more except can't always
get a reservation.

The service was outstanding.
Ordered two drinks which were wonderful.
The tomato soup a bit bland and thin. Would not order again.
The lamb...too much garlic and salt for my taste, however very tender. The halibut was a very small portion and a bit overcooked.
Berry-Bread pudding was wonderful.
Overall a bit pricy...

It was very romantic and nice. Service was the best part as well as prices! It was under 100$ for two people with drinks. The only con was it was really loud in there. But it was expected due to the time of day we went. Would go back!

The food was good, especially the calamari steak. It is a fairly small dining room and the tables are close together. The ceiling is on the lower side so the noise level is quite high. It can be difficulty to have a conversation. Still, it is the place to go, attracts diners of every age group, and fun and lively.

Lovely, lovely old style place. You could tell everyone was a local. Special birthdays, etc. A friend of mine was visiting from out of town and when she heard I made reservations at Lime Light she said, "I heard that's terrific!" And it was. :-)

It is always a nice place to dine. My husband was a bit disappointed in his salmon dinner-very bland! The rest of the party was pleased with their dinners. They make a great Negroni!!

really cool environment! It feels like you’ve stepped into a time machine and went back to the 50’s. Martini glasses hanging upside down from the bar as you walk in. Round leather booths, and lighting is very dim which gives off a very intimate feel. The service was top notch, can’t complain about that or the food. We will definitely be back!

The fun drink guy was on the patio making fresh unique drinks with custom syrups, fresh fruits, herbs and the awesome huge ice cubes. Delicious! We also had tender flavorful surf and turf. Just the green salad with grated dry blue cheese is heavenly. We had the classic fried chicken, juicy and crispy! Wonderful service! Great ambiance! Love it!

Service was excellent and the food was fantastic. I had the Ribeye medium-rare and it came out perfect. Nicely seared to lock in the juices as well. My wife had the Salmon and it was moist and seasoned just right. We will definitely be returning soon.
