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.

They redid the look and modernized it as well. The food quality is as good as ever. Quick, tasty, good pricing, plenty of room. Good cocktails as well. Good service also. Plenty of free parking as well.

The City Limits diner is a cut above your typical diner in both its ambiance and its menu. Excellent selection of food to satisfy all tastes. Not as much in the way of Greek specialties as you might find in other diners, but everything I've had has been tasty. The grilled shrimp wrap which comes with a simple salad provides... More

It's great that this place has it's own parking lot. The décor is somewhat swanky. Lunch for our table of 7 came to $27 per person. That's splitting just three appetizers. No alcoholic drinks and no dessert. And the portions were just average when compared to the larger portions that other diners might provide. I can't say it was bad,... More

I would not usually review a diner, but this place is outstanding. Its not a diner. Its a diner's grown up, sophisticated, cousin. Everything on the menu is something that may be on a regular diner menu, but the food is UNBELIEVABLE. And CLEAN!!! Real grade A maple syrup, not the kind that come in packets. We ate breakfast there... More

Would NOT call this a diner. It's more of a restaurant. Food okay, nothing special. Service was hit and miss. Its good because it is open on the late side and there is a lot to choose from, but nothing stood out. We ate here when we wanted a quick no fuss local meal, and for that it worked well.

I usually eat one thing when I go to a diner and that is a Hamburger Deluxe platter. The Hamburger was good and the French fries were excellent. The waitress never asked us if we wanted dessert which disappointed me because the cakes looked good, but unfortunately she brought the bill rather than the menu. Here is a tip for... More

City Limits is not the traditional diner. Remodeled just a few years ago, it is immaculately kept, with warm welcoming decor and plenty of booth seating. The food is decidedly fresh with an updated approach to standard diner fare. Lush fresh salads, gourmet sandwiches, which sport creative sides and garnishes, the best homemade chicken soup you will find, great burgers,... More
