White Plains Upscale Diner!

This was the 1st time I've been there since they remodeled. The place is nice and modern and can accomodate alot of people. We went there for Mother's Day and we only waited 10 minutes. The service was great and attentive especially,since they were extremely busy and they did make you not feel... read more

Service was slow. Food was okay. Price was very expensive for what you got. Atmosphere was very noisy.

Title says it all. Best brunch in the county. Lemon ricotta pancakes are my favorite but you can't go wrong with anything. Don't miss the bakery items on your way out. The scones are excellent. It can get very crowded around lunch on weekends. The wait to be seated isn't too bad but parking is very limited and fills up... More

My wife and I stopped at City Limits Diner on Monday evening. They were not overly busy and we were seated right away. I was immediately impressed by the dining room. It was large and modern with very comfortable tables and booths. We started by sharing a Mideastern platter of hummus, babaganoush, tsatziki and tabbouleh. We almost licked the plate... More

I'm a NJ guy... Diner capital of the world. This is one of the nicer ones I have been too. The staff is very friendly and the menu is a diner food with an extra touch. Burger was excellent. I will be seeing a lot more of this place.

This is a upscale dinner with a great atmosphere. I eat here once in while and mostly everything I have eating, especially seafood are great and flavorful. My favorite is the Chilean sea bass sandwich.

I Have been coming here for years and think the food is above average. The Egg Salad with Curry is delicious with a side of Potato Salad and pickle. The Steak is also delicious with cut potatoes, peppers/onions. Honestly, I do not think you will get a bad meal here. The only issue I do have is the Breakfast Menu... More

Made a quick stop here for lunch and the burger was perfect. In the days where there are a lot of burger joints around I think city limits has most of the best. I would highly recommend this place.

I agree with Len L...this is not your average diner. It's really a hot spot Diner. The menu has lots of creative items. And they are more than willing to prepare off the menu items for you. It's true it can be impossibly busy, parking can be difficult at lunchtime and the noise level can be a bit deafening but... More

Always liked City Limits. Then there was a renovation. Looks nice. That's it. Service is disappointing. They do not notice nor seem to care. Not just me. Friends say the same. Pity. Menu OK.
