We had a delicious early dinner here before seeing a play. We split a lightly dressed Caesar salad that arrived on a wood plank. The scallops with corn succotash and green beans were delicious. My husband enjoyed the tuna steak. Service was good and we had plenty of time to get to the theater right outside the door. We made reservations for our next night at the theater as we left.

This is the place to have a gracious lunch before an opera or theater at the DCPA for sure. This particular Sunday they were short handed but managed to do an excellent job nonetheless. New chef needs to learn to keep the burgers thick for a medium rare order and not smash them down into pancakes. :-)

Pork chop was raw in the middle and sent it back...came back still raw. Chicken under cooked as well. We arrived 1-1/2 hour before the show so there was no time pressure. Aside from that service was good, waitress very friendly. Overall..food was poor.

The thing about the Limelight is that we go there as a pre theater place to eat because it is pretty good and the most convenient place, but we go so often that I just wish they had more choices. Even a sandwich menu or more sharable things. I would like a really good burger or Monte Cristo or better salad for an option. Even a couple pasta dishes would help. The new one is hohum. It is always fine. We do seem to have good service. They just need to change it up a bit.

Terrible service. We had a show to go to and made early reservations with an hour and a half for dinner. We watched tables (small and large) that came in 30-40 min after us get served. My guess is that our server forgot to put in our order. Chicken came out barely cooked, and we were nearly late for curtain call with no apology or explanation. This will be a last for us.

I was pleasantly surprised by how amazing everything was, from food to location to wine choices, to ambiance. We were there for my guys birthday and he said it was the best Ahi he has ever had. A definite score for both of us. I'd recommend this, especially if you're catching a show. It's so convenient. WE will definitely dine there again.

I hadn't been to Limelight for many years. In the past, it was a sort of hit-and-miss place, somewhat disjointed and inconsistent. Physical improvements and redecoration have made it much more comfortable. The menu was simple but large enough for choices. The service was terrific. The brunch menu on Sunday was perfect for our 2 p.m. matinee at the Buell.

I requested vegan, gluten-free meals for our party of four when I made our online reservation. Not only were our meals delicious, but our server asked what time we needed to get to our concert and made sure we were on time. This is an attractive restaurant that serves excellent food and gives the diners an excellent overall experience.

I make it a habit to reserve a table at the Limelight prior to attending a show at DCPA. The atmosphere is pleasant and quiet, and the wait staff is polished and professional. The menu selections are limited to a few entrees, a few appetizers, a few salads, so that the meal can be served promptly and patrons can get to the theaters in a timely yet relaxed manner.

As theater patrons we informed our server about our showtime and we assured we had plenty of time. Our drinks and bread came out on a timely manner, but 40 minutes after we placed our order we had to tell the hostess we hadn’t received our order. Finally our server brought the appetizer and explained her tablet’s orders weren’t received on the kitchen. That appetizer was all we had time to eat.

Challenging for a restaurant to do pre theatre. This time dinner was way over salted and seemed like it had been pre cooked and warmed up. Not a good approach for scallops or pasta.
Service was really slow although staff was polite and thoughtful.

The convenience for the theatre is a HUGE plus. They take care to bring your meal in time for your performance, which I appreciate.
The server was pleasant and responsive, but just not checking in often enough. My meal was so-so. My friend's salmon was perhaps a better choice.

The location can't be beat if you are attending something at the DCPA. The food is okay, not great. My crab bisque was very one note and flat. While the crab was flavorful, the broth had no depth. My daughter and I shared a meat and cheese tray and both intensely disliked the three meats that were included. The cheeses were very good, particularly the burrata. My daughter's wedge salad came with a dressing that tasted "watered down." The martinis were delicious. My daughter really liked hers, made with pear. We would go there again, primarily for the convenience of the location. The servers were very conscious of our show start time, which we appreciated.

The filet was excellent and flavorful. Add a fourth scallop to the scallop entree. Three is inadequate. The crab bisque was delicious. This is one of our favorite dinner spots for the ballet. We frequent it enough that it would be nice if the menu changed occasionally.

Unfortunate that this place has gone downhill or we hit it on a rough night. They knew we were pre-ballet and we has a reservation a full two hours before the show, but it was still not enough and the waitress still asked us if we wanted dessert 5min before curtain after begging for our bill.
35min to get drinks after ordering (even water) and the place was still not busy. Entrees took well over an hour, then pork came out burned and impossible to cut through when ordered as a med-rare. Veggies were soggy. Wrong appetizer. Second round of drinks never came. Such a disappointing night when I have been twice before, albeit a while ago. New owner? New chef? Going to need new patrons.

THe food was delicious. The service was not good. The waitress forgot my wine, did not bring bread right away, barely checked on me though walked past often. Finally brought ALL of the food I ordered at once (Soup and main entree) when the soup should have been brought out first. Then forgot any silverware. Then brought out the soup spoon and the steak knife. Took a long time to get the bill. She really was not organized or a good waitress.

We had a group of six, but the online program did not accept that number of diners. So we made two reservations to accommodate our group. When we arrived at the restaurant, we asked the hostess if we could be seated at two tables near each other; she moved tables so that we could all sit together at one table. Excellent customer service!
