Very disappointed. We ordered salmon (med. rare) and pork tenderloin. The dishes came out together after a 25 min wait. The salmon was well done but edible. The pork dishe was cold.
They did return it to the kitchen and brought it back about 10 minutes later, it was hot in some places and barely warm in others. The pork was dry and somewhat tough. The fruit topping was ice cold.
In short, not someplace I would return to.
Service was very slow, but our server was very pleasant, I do t think the delays were her fault.
In their defense, they did comp my dinner,
We really appreciated our waitress who saw to it that we were served on time because we had tickets to the symphony that night.
The food is a bit pricey, but very good. Great location for a night out or at the theater.
Good food and fast service when we were going to a play.
Our evening and dinner were superb. Would definitely return,
Our food arrived lukewarm. Hubby's meal was not prepared well. Pork was chewy. Mine was very good (rib). This was a pre-show dinner and even though we allowed plenty of time the slow service made us rush dessert and coffee. Hoping for better.
Location is great for the venues at DCPA. Food is good except for the Pork Tenderloin. Ambiance is good. However, we have received lousy service every time we have eaten there. You need to make sure you have at least two to two and half hours to spend for dinner before any show. This restaurant is terribly under staffed. I feel so sorry for the servers. We will never eat here again.
Limelight obviously is extremely conveniently located for theatre goers, which we appreciate. We especially enjoyed the rich, fresh tasting tomato soup, a fresh wedge salad, and delectable creme brulee. We were disappointed that the charcuterie plate was not on the menu as we enjoy combining a few light dishes to share rather than choosing entrees. Burned bacon on the salad was really the only mistake. Service was friendly and efficient, and the quiet atmosphere is a plus.
Our food took over an hour to arrive. We ordered two different kinds of soup both were barely luke warm. Our entrees took over an hour to arrive. When they did arrive my medium rare beef tenderloin was almost well done. Both entrees were cold, and the polenta on my husbands meal was refrigerator cold. We only had a few minutes to wolf down cold, and not prepared how we ordered it food as we almost missed the curtain time for our theater tickets. We made our dinner reservation two hours before curtain time to allow ourselves time to enjoy a special Valentines dinner before going to the theater. We were given a $50 gift card to come back to give them another chance. The gift card will almost not quite pay for dinner for two. Honestly it was so terrible we don’t want to risk ever going back even with the $50 gift card.
We were headed to the show Stomp and were so excited to be able to finally got to go there.
The hostess was tremendous and very welcoming.
We didn't see a waitress for 20 minutes. We rushed to get our drinks. We asked for tree quickest items on the menu so that we wouldn't be late: scallops, salads and bisque soup.
Unfortunately, the bisque was watery and not flavored, we never got the crispy garlic crouton that it comes with and the salads were the last to come out.
The table that sat after us and ordered after us received their salads and drinks first.
The service was ok but not really attentive and were almost late to the show even after giving ourselves an hour and fifteen minutes and taking the waitresses suggestions on quick items to make sure we'd leave ar 7:15
Next time, I'll recommend Oceannaire or even Sam's #3 instead. Which is disappointing. We go to Buell allot and thus would've been the best place.
This was a wonderful way to start our night at the Theater. Wait staff was efficient and courteous, and mindful of our show times. Food was for the most part very nice, but one entree (chicken) was a little dry. I would definitely recommend to start a night at DFAC
An excellent location across from the Buell theater
Convenient for Performing Arts venues , able to make reservation ,menu choices good but for the price , we felt the portions were VERY small. Would recommend mainly for convenience and friendly service.
This is the second time in the past couple months that I've eaten at Limelight before a show. The food is delicious and the atmosphere pleasant. The staff are always outgoing and looking to make the dining experience a great one. While the food was very late coming out to our table making us have to hurry in order to make our show on time (we had 5:45 reservations and a 7:30 show) the staff were very apologetic and gave us a take away dessert bag of homemade cookies as a compensation. Even with this delay (not experienced the first time) I would still return to Limelight. It's an awesome place to dine for any occasion.
Attentive service, nice menu, very convenient on theatre and symphony nights!
Yummy food, good service, perfect location for theater night!
We had a lovely meal before going to the theater. There was some service snafus all related to a single employee who gave us the wrong menus, cleared the table between courses thinking we were done, and was unable to use the prepaid gift card for our payment. But our waitress was wonderful and gave us really great recommendations when we asked.
I could eat here every time I am downtown!!
Unfortunately one of Denver's legendary celebrity chefs, Kevin Taylor, has lost several locations. The Art Museum is remodeling where his restaurant was located, nearby Hotel Teatro changed his restaurant for a new one and even the one across the way at the Opera House is hardly open any more. That is not to take away from some amazing meals in the past but this is indicative of someone who has lost his interest. Even the one new one, in Broomfield, is run by his son mostly. So it was a disappoint to go to Limelight knowing of his past and enjoying it. Nothing bad, just nothing exciting either. Generous portions but basic menu, little creativity and flavors. It's wonderfully convenient to the DCPA but within a few blocks are literally dozens and dozens of choices, many with great promotional tie-ins to the DCPA too (parking, discounts, drinks...). We had to ask for bread among other things and on a Saturday night to have half the tables empty, with many shows going on, says a lot. Sad to see once great things end but I guess everything does. Lucky for Denver there are so many choices nearby.
The kitchen was not on point yesterday at all. Nothing like knowing the kitchen staff is hungover.... Our medium burger came out well. And we waited and waited. Many people around us waited we were all headed to a theatre production. Lucky for us we allowed plenty of time. Our server was sweet she helped take the edge off. Not my favorite day here.
Good friendly service and tasty food. Had the short ribs and chicken. I would recommend both.
