We were fitted in at very short notice and everything was absolutely superb. Service was excellent and the food was just amazing. My husband said the beef duo was second to none and my duck was as good as anything I have had in top class French restaurants. Bravo Lime House.

We went to the Lime House on Friday night for a wonderful meal. From start to finish we were looked after by the excellent staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. The food was just amazing, tasty and such a variety on the menu it was very difficult to make a selection! The duo of beef was the best beef my husband has ever eaten and he is still raving about it two days later! The puddings were wonderful and all home made even the ice-cream which makes the Lime House a cut above other places. The wine list was very extensive and we found it difficult to chose but as it was a special night we picked some fizz and enjoyed the bubbles, delicious and beautifully served.
Thanks you very much Lime House we will see you very soon!

First the bad (and it's "minor bad") point: we were sat in the front section of the restaurant bang in front of a draughty door when the main part of the restaurant at the back seemed to have plenty of space. The good point is that there were no other bad points.

The food was excellent. My wife's pigeon/black pud starter looked amazing and she loved it. I enjoyed the pheasant terrine too. Main course was cod with a crab fishcake for both of us. Mrs Swindoneric had the rice pud for dessert while I had the chocolate trio which is three puds in one.

We went a la carte but looking at other tables where diners were tucking into three courses for £19.95 we would probably go that route next time. Waitress chirpy and friendly. Would definitely go back.

Booked this place based on the reviews on TA as we were meeting friends in York for the weekend. It didn't disappoint. Food was really, really good and the staff helpful and friendly. We were offered both al a carte and set price menus and when we asked if we could 'mix and match' from the menus it wasn't a problem! What a breath of fresh air! So often one goes to a restaurant and they are so pretentious when asked that question or won't let you do it, so this was a really nice change. Price wise we thought it was worth every penny. The serving staff were pleasant, helpful and attentive. If I was being ultra picky, we had to wait quite a while for our bill and ask for it twice, but hey, if that's the only criticism that can't be bad! All in all a very nice experience and we would go back if in the area again. Well done!

Have walked passed this restaurant on many occasion, have even looked at the
menus in the window, but after reading all the excellent reviews on tripadvisor, we
decided to book a table the next time we were in York.
It was a good thing we booked, even though it was mid week, the restaurant was
full. Like all the recent reviews, we found everything to a very high standard. The staff were excellent and the service and the food we could not fault.
Thanks to the great reviews and the great work done by the owners and staff we
might of kept on walking by- you never know what you have been missing!! OUR
MISTAKE
