The staff at Cecil and Lime are very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the menu and the wine selection. The food was perfect! Amazing steaks but also some great vegetarian options. My favorite place in Springfield. Ask for Joshua.

A bit pricey but a nice small local restaurant with popular selections and well presented cooked food choices. Our University had a nice Dept. Christmas dinner here.

This is my third so-so dinner experience at Cecil & Lime. The service is good, as are the mixed drinks even though the cosmos are $11. The steaks ONLY are the only good item on the menu here. Don't bother with the Prime Rib, the scallops or chicken - all mediocre to poor in quality. The risotto is good. They... More

This was my wife's and my first visit to this restaurant, and we were impressed. I haven't seen another local place like this in Springfield. We had the Longdale Ribeye Steaks and they were amazing! I highly recommend this restaurant and the Longdale Farm prime beef.

This was not the first time dining here, and our experience rates this a consistently good venue. Our martinis were generous. The prime rib and the filet mignon were cooked appropriately and were juicy and flavorful. The kale and cauliflower mash was interestingly tasty. The wait staff was attentive and friendly.

We went to celebrate our 26th anniversary and a major accomplishment for our son. It was our 3rd visit and our last. I ordered the filet and was sorely disappointed in the quality and flavor. It was very strong tasting and tough. The dinner rolls (only 3) were the smallest I've ever seen in a restaurant. The cost definitely didn't... More

Fantastic meal. The scallops were cooked perfectly. The lobster risotto was some of the best I've ever had. My husband loved his ribeye. Great service. Highly recommend!
