I would never have made a 1:30 reservation had I known that the kitchen closed at 2:00. The server misinformed us that the bar would remain open. That was wrong. Ruined my Sunday afternoon. Had to find another place to gather with my family. Won’t be back anytime soon. The burger was good, though.

Don't go if you're expecting to be seated with a view. We were seated all the way back, next to the parking lot and there were not enough bee traps to keep bees at bay.

Open table reservation 2 days in advance got us a table on the main terrace with a magnificent view of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset and dusk with lights gleaming all over the City.. Dinner menu was quite limited, but we chose well and the whole fish was excellent. Service was prompt, but not very attentive. This was a very special occasion dinner (50th anniversary) but we did not have enough communication with the waiter to even mention it to him. Still, the ambiance and view made up for any shortcoming.

Service from Francisco, Manny and Luke was great as always. Food quality is poor. Rock cod tasted worse than fish sticks from a box. Only thing somewhat edible we’re the fries.

It was our first restaurant outing since Covid began so we were almost giddy at being at Limewood. We loved the outdoor ambience and had dressed accordingly for a cool evening. It was great to be among other people enjoying themselves. Our waiter was fabulous. The only negative was that the food was quite uneven.

This was the perfect spot during the covid pandemic. We were able to sit outside on the veranda with a lovely view of the Bay. Everyone who waited on us was terrific.
The only issue was they ran out of peaches so no peach and Kale salad

Should have ordered Postmates. Food and drinks would have arrived quicker. Food was fine. Table was in a parking lot with headlights shining in your eyes after sunset. Just skip it.

Only reason ambiance didn’t get 5 out of 5 is because of Covid-19 considering the beautiful grounds the Claremont has I felt like we could have set somewhere other than the parking lot but the food and service was incredible and I understand these are trying times for everyone so over all 4.5 out of 5! We would definitely come back but maybe not when its 95 degrees!

The food this week seemed to not be as good as it was in the prior week. I got the chicken and pancakes plate. The prior week was delicious and I brought my family back to experience the brunch. This time, however, the chicken was greasy, and it was a bit thick on the batter. Also, it was a bit hard.
The pancake was good. Also I enjoyed the mushroom omelet. My son's burger was also quite tasty.

The overall experience was a bit tainted by the fact that we were attacked by bees, which diminished my ability to enjoy the food. I wish they would do something that would discourage bees from descending on our plates. I know that we were outside, but there has to be a way. I don't know if they work, but there are some portable plug in items that produce a high pitched sound that discourages bees and other critters from hanging out in the area. That or something else would be nice to help enhance the experience.

Eating out during covid makes me nervous but safety was not an issue during my Sunday brunch visit. Temp checks, masks on, distancing, sanitizer stations,
everything was done right. Service was great, pleasant server, not intrusive but there when you needed him. Food was excellent. Had lobster biscuit with a nice portion of lobster, tender biscuit with nice crust and delicious sauce. I highly recommend.

Delicious food, excellent service, beautiful view from the deck. The price is reasonable for a fancy place. Entree sizes are large compared to most fine dining. Recommend for a night out with someone special or just to have a couple drinks and apps.

Beautiful view on a beautiful evening. Very limited menu ( maybe because of covid) had a very difficult 90 year old out for her birthday. Made her happy even though it clearly stated no substitutions on the menu! Good service. I enjoyed brunch on our last visit better but that was pre covid. Felt clean and safe. All staff wearing masks and hand sanitizing stations throughout.

I was expecting more for such a historic place. There were only a few dinner menu items and the waiter kept telling us the cost as if we couldn't afford to eat there. I did enjoy the atmosphere and it was a beautiful day to be out.

The food was great. Everyone on the staff was friendly, natural and competent. We dined outdoors because of COVID. The poor air quality detracted from the beauty of the setting but we had a nice meal despite it.
