Warm inviting welcome from hostess. Enjoyed Mahi Mahi and strawberry/rhubarb crisp. Service was good.

This is our first time here since the renovations. We had the Gaspatcho Soup which we both enjoyed very much. Pulled pork sandwich was very good, large portion! Roast beef sandwich on Chabata bread was HUGE!! Horseradish mayo was deliciously strong. Service staff was attentive and place was pretty busy.

We've been to the City Lights on several occasions when we were staying in the White Plains area. This time we were nearby as we drove from NYC to Albany and detoured a bit to get a breakfast we knew could rely on. We were surprised to see it had been renovated since our last visit. The decor was fine... More

Okay, so the old diner we knew and loved with the big coffee cup and donut hanging from the ceiling is gone (the coffee cup and donut are by the bakery counter in the front right window, if you're curious). And the renovations brought with them, no surprise to anyone, higher prices. But...hey. The food is good, and there is... More

Success has gotten to the City Limits Diner. Food was still good BUT the place was NOISY. U could not hear yourself speak. We noticed this on previous times, but this time it really got out of hand. So much so that I will find another place to eat until they fix the problem. Another issue is the air conditioning.... More

If you are looking for a restaurant where you are sure to bring home a pile of food this is the place. Parking is a nightmare...not enough spaces to accommodate the number of guests. Food is average or below....but the size of the portions is large. Prices are high for the quality.

I can usually count on good food, atmosphere value and service but I will say the last time was a bit disappointing as our server seemed distracted and annoyed. We hailed another server to get our drinks and our to go containers and lastly had to ask someone to get our server so we could have the check. We waited... More

My wife and I went in to the newly renovated City Limits for dinner one night and we were disappointed with the new menu. I wanted a steak sandwich and the only thing they had was a tough sliced steak sandwich smothered with a tasteless sauce of some kind. My wife had an egg salad sandwich and nearly broke her... More

City Limits underwent a long renovation but it was well worth it. The interior is beautiful and the food and service still above most diner fare. It has become a power meeting place for those high in the business world of Westchester.
