Limewood Bar & Restaurant
Lovely experience with out of state visitors at this very unusual time to try entertaining anyone. Thankfully the restaurant staff was appropriately cautious, but welcoming and generous with their time and expertise. Experienced a wonderful lunch, which our guests will remember fondly. The view is unsurpassed, the food beautifully presented and delicious....what more can you expect!?
Excellent food and service
Always a great place for date night and to get consistently great service and food.
The restaurant was quite crowded and extremely noisy, to the point where my friend and I had to make an effort so speak loudly to hear each other. The noise changed the whole experience. The last time I was at Limewood, it was delightfully quiet.
Everything was wonderful. Particularly great service
It was my moms birthday and our server went above and beyond to make us feel very special. She had a wonderful time and the food was fantastic! Thank you limewood!
Service was friendly but very slow. Most of the food was good, but there were misses like the eggs were barely warm and the toast was burnt so much that it should not have been allowed to leave the kitchen in that condition. Also, the coffee was so strong that I could barely drink it even after putting large amounts of cream into it.
The views from this location are incredible, the food is always great! The service is very good and friendly. One of the Hidden Gems in Berkeley
Great location, very attentive service, and really terrible tricked out, badly executed food. My dinner was buried under green garnish, shaved raw carrots, and pitifully undercooked pasta. The best thing we are was the oysters- as there was no spiced cashews or walnuts, pickled grapes or onions and no cheese emulsion. Chef- please simplify!
One of my favorite restaurants in Berkeley. Great ambiance, and attentive service. The food is good and well-presented. I keep coming back here and have enjoyed each visit!
The view was breathtaking. The staff was amazing.
My meat could have been hot instead of warm. I think the restaurant precooked the steak. It was still very good. The service was excellent.
The food was exceptionally good. However, the service felt rushed. We had a glass of champagne before lunch and our entrée was served almost immediately. We were halfway done with our meal before our waiter realized we’d been served and asked us if we wanted any bread.It was our anniversary and we were anticipating a leisurely lunch. Even with dessert and espresso, we were done and the bill was paid in under an hour. On the plus side, staff I realized it was our anniversary and wished us a happy one. When our dessert was served, it came with a complementary piece of white chocolate on which happy anniversary had been written.
Our server was amazing, personable, and attentive. We went for drinks and dessert. The pot de creme was excellent, cheesecake good. Two desserts, two glasses of wine, tax & tip was around $70. Very nice ambiance for a pre-Valentine's Day outing.
Delicious food and loved the variety the addition of the bar menu provided. Great service.
Good food and service but if you pay $700 for dinner they should discount you parking by more than $2 buck. Just cover it. That kind of thing annoys all sorts of people
Great ambiance and customer service! And very tasty choices ...
Not so great service. Wasn’t impressed with the food
Good menu and food. Price point on the higher end. Friendly staff and good service. Great view from the restaurant.
We used to come to the Claremont Bar and Restaurant for years for the ambiance and great views more than the food. But recently, the new design has even taken that away. This is on top of the fact that food is incredibly overpriced, underwhelming, and limited in option. Cocktail was well done and server was fine but shocked that any non-corporate purchase card buyer who would willing throw money away for a subpar restaurant masquerading to be a high-end establishment. Now diners can not even see the views of the city anymore when the patio is closed due to the paneling and types of windows in place. Sadly, this is a huge disappointment now and do not expect to return.
Forgot to remind server, would have thought it would be in our reservation notes
Celebrated a birthday party. Excellent experience!
Great service food was delicious and drinks were really good!!!
Place was BEAUTIFUL AND VIEW AMAZING!!!
Halibut overcooked. Bland service, very noisy
Beautiful setting. Our food was very good but very slow coming out of the kitchen.
We've been here several times for brunch, but this was our first time having dinner. It was tasty, and the view is just as spectacular at night as it is during the day. Wine is excellent as are the cocktails.
The food is great, view is amazing, and the service is delightful!! Definitely one of my favorite places in the East Bay!!!
Small selection of dishes, and waiter seemed a bit short with us, not as inviting as I would have liked. Some of the dishes were amazing and some were mediocre.
We were seated next to a very noisy table— only four people making enough noise for 10. Would be nice if restaurant had a way of dealing with those who are so inconsiderate. Hostess kindly let us have our coffee in the bar. She was great.
Great place to take a client. The servers during breakfast are lovely and allow you to have a quiet and slower-paced experience if that's what you request.
Limewood has definitely the best view to be had in the Bay Area -- all the way to the Golden Gate. However, we chose to go there for brunch, and the fact that the orange juice wasn't freshly squeezed was the first clue. The menu was aimed at a moneyed crowed ($22 for a burger that wasn't even Wagu?), and there were no omelets, not one, and when we asked, were told they didn't "do" omelets. Settling for eggs and bacon, the food (which did arrive quickly and hot) was good but could be purchased for a quarter of the price elsewhere. But then, of course, there wouldn't be the view. So compromise and choose what's important for your breakfast experience.
M was so accommodating and helpful. She explained the dishes and coaxed me to try something different and I’m so glad I did. When another waiter noticed we both had on dark slacks, he offered us black napkins.
They made my birthday lunch extra special!!
Great ambiance with good food and great views, service was okay, will definitely return
Wait staff knowledgeable about food and helped me customize my order.
We had a very nice time, felt a tad rushed but it was New Year's Day
Overall, we had a good experience. I’d definitely return again, thanks.
Overpriced and soggy eggs Benedict, obviously reheated in a microwave.
I got together with 6 of my young cousins for brunch -
The food was delightful, service efficient and we could actually hear each other talk. Really great time
There was a VERY limited menu at 1:30 pm. Basically, the only lunch item was a hamburger, everything else was breakfast. Also, it took a long time to be served our food. However the hamburger WAS good.
