The food is diner fare with a twist of sophistication. They often have seasonal favorites and their in-house bakery is a pleasant touch. Is centrally located with ample parking. The prices are moderate for the quality of food you get. Portions are ample and they offer a great selection of cocktails. This is a great family place, a date night... More

I can't say enough about City Limits. We've been coming here for dinner ever since it opened. In fact, before the LIvano Restaurant Group had this place, there was an eponymous restaurant on the site named Livano's. Livano's was meant for fine dining and special occasions. In fact, we held our kids' Bar Mitzvah there more than 20 years ago.... More

We've lived in Westchester for over 16 years. Every few years we go there, have a fair experience and then give it another shot. This morning we decided to go there for breakfast. While the coffee was strong and good and my son loves his eggs over easy w cheese and bacon, my husband and I ordered the omelets. The... More

This is a diner that won't disappoint. If you are near White Plains and are a diner enthusiast - this is the place for you. Wish I... More

Had a great meal at the City Limits Diner: Lobster wontons, clam chowder, and a Cobb Salad. Ordered a side of onion rings, and they were unlike any other I had eaten. Large thick pieces of onion dipped in batter and fried. Wish I'd taken a photo. They are hard to describe--tasted great!

I have been at City Limits numerous time for breakfast and lunch and only one time for dinner. The breakfast and lunch food choices are all good but don't expect to go cheap. It is a diner but prices are just like any other restaurant. It is always crowded, kind of loud and the service is very good.. When I... More

I've been here for breakfast and lunch and dinner once. They spent a lot of money getting it to look nice. They have a nice bakery that prepares some good items. The menu tries but the service is less then adequate. There are so many better restaurants close by.

The recent renovations made City Limits into a more hip, big nod to the early sixties sort of spot. Still casual, kind of loud, but the food remains innovative. I think they did not change up the menu too much to avoid alienating the big bustling local crowd. It's definitely a nicer place to bring a family than fast food.... More

I've been to both the City Limits White Plains and the Stamford, Ct locations. The White Plains location has always had better prepared food. Service is about the same between the two locations. There is something for everyone on their menu and always specials. Once of my fav times to go is when they have their Lobster Festival or their... More
