Would not recommend this restaurant for kids. Food is very up market & a little pricey. I had the opera cake for dessert & don't believe I've seen it in any other restaurants in the area. It was absolutely delicious. I like the options there of indoor or outdoor dinning& loved that the patio provides protection from the weather. It's a perfect place to go for a special occasion or dinner before a show.

The food was not good and small portions for a big price. Me and the people in my party will never go there again.

We did walk up to the bar and order drinks which was easy enough but I was informed there was no service for food on the patio. The restaurant was busy and they didn’t have a server for the patio but our bartender Patrick accommodated us quite nicely. The patio filled in quickly around 6 o’clock and there wasn’t a seat available so I’m glad we got there early. The cheese and salami plate was good but I would hardly say one little half ounce piece of soft cheese was enough to accommodate the dozen or more slices of salami and another dried salami. It was good just not great Beverage selection at the walk up bar was good and the prices were decent for being right in the theater district. I hope to dine inside and drink wine from a real glass next time.

The decorum of the restaurant was disappointing and carpet had stains that took away from enjoying a meal. This restaurant has changed its name and apparently is under new management; hopefully the new ownership will eventually bring it up to par.

Despite being completely booked for pre-show dinner, the food was both timely and excellent. The service was fantastic!

They also seem to need to iron out a few kinks in their systems.....waitress was wonderful but couldn't run our credit card because her supervisor was unavailable. We had to get to the symphony so were fortunate that we had enough cash to pay, but it was inconvenient. Food was not up to Kevin Taylor standards, and we hope this will improve.

The menu was very limited and disappointing and the food was not very good. We had a good server, but she was taking care of numerous tables at once. There was no ambiance in the dining room we were in and it does look like an under-renovation after-thought. It was also not very clean. We sat near a window and there was a lot of food and debris on the floor and in the window woodwork. We will not be back.

Brussell Sprouts were hard and uneatable. Other items not bad but pricey. Dessert, creme brulle was very good. Feel like only close place to eat when attending Performing Arts especially with a handicap person. Was good about accommodating handicap individual, however. Thanks!

The ceiling panels appear to be from the original build-out. We order 7 different plates. We liked the meatball, beets (we ordered a second plate), radishes, fries and brussel sprouts. We did not like the crispy goat cheese ball-very little cheese or the smokey eggplant baby ghanoush-it lacked any flavor. They were out of both Tempranillo bottle options. Kind of weird. But we got something else we liked.

Probably a good thing, before theater. Our waiter kept forgetting our drinks..had to ask twice. Not "Kevin Taylor" worthy!

My real issue is with the ambiance or the lack thereof. It has the feel of a cafeteria or sandwich joint - especially the lighting. I realize most people are probably there to grab a quick bite before the show and maybe that’s the intent for you to feel uncomfortable so get in and get out. We might go again before a show but if they want to generate business on non-show nights they need to make some changes.

The new design and rebranding was done very well and quite successfully! The food was fantastic...we had the bubbling goat Brie, fried Brussels sprouts, cornbread and Nashville hot chicken. Coursing was spot on, as was the service (Ryan was our server - ask for him), including a very engaging food runner. There was a constant and noticeable manager presence on the floor, insuring a proper pre-show flow as well as engagement with guests. Bravo!

The menu is excellent and everything we had was great. The smoked duck breast was amazing. I love the fact that they always get you out on time to see whatever performance you are going to.

We ordered several appetizers (deviled eggs, corn bread and truffle fries), the meatballs, the trout crudo and the chicken fries. Our waitress warned us against ordering the crudo and when we asked why, she said “because the fish is raw.” When we told her that we thought crudo was always raw and we liked that, she said that most people didn’t know that and wouldn’t like raw fish. It seemed like a strange comment from a waitress and so we ordered it anyway and it was just fine. When asked about how many thighs came with an order we were told 3. We requested 4 but were told that wasn’t possible, so we ordered two orders of thighs. The first thing to arrive was one plate of four thighs. When we asked about the second order we were told it would come later. We were surprised that the first to arrive was the last course on the menu and that two orders of the same fish wouldn’t have come together. The other items came in a seemingly random order with the fries last. Since the second plate of thighs never turned up, we were able to cancel it. The food was mediocre. Having lots of time before our play, we decided to try a dessert and ordered the opera cake. It arrived looking like a well-prepared frozen dessert. We asked our waitress about it and she said it was made in house. As we were paying our check, another waitperson said that he overheard our conversation and wanted us to know that it was not made in-house. We were looking forward to a much better experience than the Limelight provided and were encouraged by the apparent creativity of the menu. Unfortunately, it turned out to be an amateurishly prepared and served dinner. We won’t be back.

Every dish was delicious - the Brussels sprouts were the table favorite and probably the best I’ve ever had. We also all shared the crime brûlée and homemade donuts were delicious and a healthy portion so good to share. The service was friendly and fast. All-in-all, a huge improvement over Limelight! We will return!
