City Limits Is Always Good

My title says it all. We've been going to City Limits about twice a month since it opened about 20 years ago. Like most places it has its ups and downs but the downs are mere blips as far as I'm concerned. I would say that it's always good and sometimes even better than that. The standard menu... read more

Most of the time, its a LONG wait. I love the food and the service is always exceptional so I am willing to sit it out until I get a table. If you go before noon its a lot easier.

This is not your average run of the mill diner. The decor is nice and very spacious and the food is above average for a diner. The staff is friendly and very attentive and the menu is extensive. It is most of the time very busy no matter what day or time you go here. Great for friends or even... More

Met family members @ City Limits Diner for a birthday dinner. It is a midway point, convenient location for both families. BUT we will return again (and again and ...) for the awesome food, classy and comfortable atmosphere and top notch service. To me, this is no ordinary diner, it's a 5 star restaurant from top to bottom. Everyone's food... More

This local favorite is one of the keystones in the Livanos family restaurant empire. For more than 40 years, I have been enjoying the food, ambiance and general likable staff at this Westchester grande dame. It offers a variety of fine options, many made in-house or sourced locally. There isn't anything I have ever eaten there that wasn't well prepared... More

For business folks in the White Plains area City Limits is a convenient central meeting spot. That's the only reason I go there; so many other diners top it in quality and value. Ordinary breakfast fare (omelettes, French toast, etc.) easily run into the $12-$15 range, so you imagine what lunch and dinner cost! Service is prompt and the decor... More

We ordered several appetizers - mini tacos, lobster wontons and Mexican sampler. They were all very good. Our server was friendly and attentive without hovering. They do not rush you out which is nice.
