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

Food is consistently good, servings tend to be hefty, noise level a little loud, but food is good. Milk shakes are top quality. Conveniently located across the street from the Westchester County Center so if you are going to an event there, you can easily eat at City Limits before or after the event. Good solid breakfasts too.

My wife and I have been eating in this restaurant (not diner) for many years. We don't consider this to be a special restaurant since we go here so often. The service and food are always good. Prices are fair. Not too long ago they remodeled and changed the menu. They kept some items and deleted some but still dependable.... More

The extensive menu is diner- like, but the choices are not at all what you expect from a diner. Food is very good, and the bakery counter near the entrance is tempting, too. I've been coming here for years and it is always a good choice, but sometimes can be very crowded.

Best Huevos Rancheros ever. Better than in Mexico! The diner is super clean, the baked goods all look scrumptious. All in all it was a delicious dining experience!

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
