This diner is a cut above all others because the design, seating comfort and interior is most pleasing. Perhaps it is these things which build up one's expectations, but the food is always disappointing. At first we thought we just ordered the wrong items, and because it is so attractive and conveniently located we have tried at several times, but... More

Attractive decor, large open concept, has a bar, bakery at entrance. Full meals, sandwiches, salads, appetizers, open long hours. My favorite is the BLT on ciabatta bread, good burgers, crab cakes. They have specials & some menu items not usually seen on ordinary run of the mill diners.

Went for an early dinner last night. 9 grain bread sold out, focaccia in basket stale. Ordered lobster wontons sold out. Bring back Chef Peter to get back a normal experience.

Three adults with a child went for a quick dinner. The place can handle a lot of people, be busy, but not feel crowded. Hostess seating. It's clean, service is efficient and very good, the menu is extensive, and the specials /entrees/ sandwiches salads are very tasty and hefty portions. You'll be asking for a box. Love their burger.

Every time I've been here for lunch the parking lot has been packed yet never had to wait for a table. Good diner food but a little more pricey then your typical diner. Service was good also.

I wanted to get something real quick after work so I went to city limits and sat at the bar. I ordered a seafood soup and a mushroom burger without the bun and a seltzer. Waitress was very friendly. The food was OK. My food came with some string beans and the one thing I hate are string beans that... More

Spent Thanksgiving here and everything was excellent. Their special menu included a tasty lamb kebab with couscous done just right - tender and delicious. The salmon was buttery and cooked to perfection. Pecan pie, pumpkin pie and pumpkin cheesecake were all delicious. Excellent meal all around.

Although I don't find the food terrible impressive, it's great to have a diner-like restaurant around. White Plains has one not-so-good diner, a wonderful "greasy-spoon" diner and for a large city, it's nice to have City Limits as an option. It's in a perfect location and makes for a great meeting place.
