Great food, and I appreciate how the staff is aware of the time constraints before showtime. We had a lovely evening!

A delightful experience. The salad was crisp and very fresh. The scallops were amazing. A nice pre-symphony dinner.

Very convenient location for before/after performance dinner. Food was average, we got cheese plate and shrimp appetizers and salmon with scallops for dinner. The best taste was for the cheese apperitizer. Scallops were over cooked and brought lukewarm (defiantly were standing in the kitchen for some time before were served). Salmon was average, lukewarm as well, not fresh from the oven/grill. Chocolate cake dessert was not fresh, ice cream on the top was he best part. Cream brûlée was delicious (however not the best I have ate). Service is below average, they brought appetizers with the main course and we were very hungry by than. It took more that 30 minutes to bring main course and Restaraunt was not working at full capacity. I do not think I would be visiting it again. There are more better places in closer proximity to the DCPA.

I took my two grandchildren ages 12 and eight for a pre-theater lunch. The wait person was wonderful and for the little one she even put three cherries in her Shirley Temple instead of only two. Always a hit!!! My soup and salad were good, too. (Only complaint was that the crab bisque came out luke warm and had to be sent back, and it wasn't very tasty anyway. Needed a little sherry or something else to enhance the flavor.) But otherwise, everything was lovely!

Experience was great. Server was very friendly and personable. The gift card for the restaurant was not as efficient as possible. It is done via the website and you had to go to several links to actually get the printout that works at the restaurant. This issue is solely with the giftcard website not the restaurant.

 (San Diego)·Dined on January 11, 2018

This restaurant is located within the Denver Center for Performing Arts complex so is convenient for theater goers. My friend and I were caught in traffic from Colorado Springs. Even though we were very late for our reservation, the Maitre'd worked us in and we made it to the show as they were dimming the houselights! My Scottish salmon was exquisite and she enjoyed her grilled shrimp as well. Mostly, we appreciated being welcomed so warmly even though we were late. The furniture is very "back yard" and I thought I remembered a more formal setting before, but the food was fabulous.

Pleasant preshow dinner right across for Buell Theater inDenver. Tenderloin was perfectly prepared medium rare,beef rib in whisky similarly on target. asparagus’s had been killed and appeared squashed . I know it is hard to serve a lot of tables right before a show, but for the price, it should be perfect. Need to rotate menu items so that there is a fresh menu each month for regular show goers

Limelight is our favorite restaurant for gathering with friends before going to the theater which is directly across the walkway. The food is always good, the atmosphere delightful and we have never had bad service. We appreciate the server sitting our group of 10-12 together and dividing the checks, however they tell us each time that it is not their policy to do so. We are grateful that they are willing to make an exception and tip them accordingly. Limelight is always a good choice!

We like the Limelight. It is really convenient when we are attending any event at DCPA. The food is good and well presented but I think it's a bit pricey. Our server was delightful and accommodating. The ambiance is good and it wasn't too noisy. The bread pudding is fantastic.

I've been to the Limelight several times now. The food is good but they were out of everything they wanted (anything Crab and Creme Brulee). It was 5:30 PM. A little early to run out. The service was just okay. We were greeted and seated right away. Great! Once seated, it took a while before even getting water, let alone drinks from our waiter. They mixed up what was ordered, as well. When the check came, nothing special, no "sorry discount" just "here's the tab". So, overall, a bit disappointed.

I have been to the Limelight on several occasions. It's proximity to DCPA is the reason.
I got soup and salad. Added Chicken $6.00. I believe there was 6-10 round like chicken pieces...sizes about a nickel. Really for six dollars? Drinks ran out. Waited. Waited.

We came for lunch before the theater. We had been here once before for dinner and it was good. The menu was a weird brunch/ breakfast with not a lot to choose from. It was one side of a menu page. The truffle fries were good. The hummus was bland, served with a few nice veggies, no pita bread or bread of any kind with this. The main course choices were limited. The breakfast burrito was very bland. The other choices seemed to fit a bar menu but not for dinner before the theater: a hamburger, macs and cheese.
The servers were nice, they seemed a bit inexperienced. The prices were too high for the type of food and quality. We won’t be back unless the menu gets more flavorful.

Food was great. We caught brunch before a play at the Buell. The only thing I'd say is that one of the women's bathrooms was out of service. It gets pretty hectic as everyone is trying to get moving closer to the start of the theater productions.

The service was top shelf as was the food. You really call it a complaint but they served a lot of food on the plates. Couldn’t eat it all and I wanted to because it was so good.
So convenient to the theater, directly across from the Buell doors.
Wine was wonderful, food was also excellent. It was really good.
We will return next show.

Surprisingly big portions! I have to admit, I had preconceived notions that there would be very little food. I considered the location and the price and boy was I (thankfully) wrong! Made pre- theatre reservations for summer here and was thankful to have the reservation. The atmosphere was fine- modern. The waitress, Alicia was wonderful (she had great recommendations and made sure we stayed on time for the show), as was the rest of the staff. And the food was delicious! I had the beef tenderloin and my mother-in-law had the pork tenderloin. Both dishes were tasty and filling! One of the best steaks I have ever had. Can’t wait to return!

Several years ago we went to Limelight and said never again. However, it was very cold out and we wanted somewhere we could park and be close to DCPA and decided to give it another chance . Sure glad we did. The food was very good and well prepared. The service left a lot to be desired. Our waitperson managed to not get our first shared course to the table at all . Our daughter was eagerly waiting for her shared choice of shrimp and grits. Our salads arrived but not our wine order. Our main courses were wonderful with wine finally followed by a yummy dessert which was on the house. We look forward to eating there soon and often but sure hope the timing and serving gets straightened out.

Have been here dozens of times. Great food as always !!! Service was very slow. Although the restaurant handle theatre patrons prior to shows, making other patrons wait for food because of theatre times is inexcusable. Especially if the server lies about it to you. Tell the customer the truth. Very poor server and tableside manner.

Ugh - our meals last night we’re not good, which is a bummer because this place is pricey! My steak was full of gristle, my mom’s pasta dish was cold, service wasn’t great. We have eaten here several times before performances and it’s always been sub par; I’m really wondering why we go back - beyond the fact that it’s obviously very convenient with the location. This is it for us, tired of paying a lot of money for crummy food.

I have to say, we have eaten many times at Limelight and usually enjoy the food and convenience of this place, this time was quite a disappointment! Our waiter took way too long to take our orders and, although our soups or salads came out quickly, it then again took way too long to get our meals, and my husband’s pork tenderloin was overcooked (which even our waiter agreed on). Seeing as we didn’t get our food until a little after 7 for a 7:30 play start we felt we needed to hurry and eat to not be late, and we were in our restaurant seats by 5:30!

Way too expensive for the mediocre food. Service was good, though needing to get to the theater on time prevented us from dessert, even though we'd been seated for an hour and 15 minutes. Felt taken advantage of as a place convenient for a pre-theater meal. Will look for other nearby restaurants next time.
