We have not yet had the chance to eat here, and I will update my review when we do, but this place makes excellent drinks and has a nice little patio where you can have a cigar if you wish. We seem to find ourselves here late night with friends after we've spent time at Fig Garden. The service is... More

Always great ! Largest lobster In the valley @ 1lb. Everything Is special. The new management seems to have transitioned well with the new ownership. Just love the the dining area, it's a definite blast from the past era. Great place to run into old friends. Our friend from out of town always enjoy a very special night out at... More

This place reminds me of an old dark 1960 bar when you first walk in, big leather booths, no light, and a big bar. There's a patio too but it generally is filled with smokers. The food is good and constant with some favorite throw back like liver and lamb shanks done very well I've been told...not my cup of... More

The food was excellent as usual. I had the Halibut special with lobster risotto and my wife had the crab cocktail. We were part of a party of six. The bad part of this whole experience was our server. I'm not one to complain ( see past reviews) but the service sucked tonight. I don't know what we did to... More

I waited on writing this critique of The LimeLite, one we visit most frequently, until the ownership transition appears essentially complete. We Lime Lite dined when it was located west of 99, prior to the current Shaw location. The family owned restaurant changed ownership a couple of years ago to another well known Fresno family and the menu transition began.... More

I've eaten at the Lime Lite a couple of times with Silvio Simac (Martial Artist and Movie Actor). Silvio is a "friend of a friend". The first time I ate at the Lime Lite with him, it was after a taping of my show "Martial Arts Mania", when Silvio was my guest on the show. A month later, when Silvio... More

This is Fresno's "Little Hollywood", where I seem to go with actors, producers, etc. The other night, the co-producer of my show took me to the Lime Lite for dinner, to thank me for helping her get other side-line jobs: making commercials. I had the prime rib, it was excellent. The only thing I didn't care for was the "seasonal... More

We have a group that dines together about once a month. This month we picked the Lime Lite for our dinner selection. We arrived a little late but the restaurant maitre d' was most welcoming and led us to a corner table.

Small and intimate setting and food is well prepared. We are usually able to bring home left overs for another meal. The summer salad is a special treat that is available only during the summer months when the tomatoes are just perfect. Never had a meal at the restaurant that I did not enjoy. Very relaxing and intimate experience.

We favor the Lime Lite over all the other “top” restaurants where we dine in the Fresno / Clovis area. The food is cooked to perfection and amply presented without the “California cuisine” squirts and squiggles one now finds in many of the newer cuisine establishments. The wine list is also exceptional for all tastes. The service, as always, impeccable.... More
