I think of our family like Jack Sprat and kin. DH only wants fish, DS only wants steak. DD will eat little, and I am somewhere between. At CL, we are all happy. Husband loves the grilled fishes. Son loves the steaks. Daughter picks, and I either go for entree salads or the comfort food. It has a pleasant vibe with the renovation. And don't miss the Valrona Chocolate pudding.and the banana cream pie.

The food is always good at City Limits. It is a more sophisticated dining experience than your run of the mill diner.

This is the last time we will ever eat at this "diner". The chef doesn't know the
difference between "pastrami" turkey vs "smoked" turkey. It tasted like gasoline! Even called the general manager of the restaurant... They have 2 GM's and not one of them offered to make good on a very bad dinner. The manager that night offered zero help too. Overpriced and the redesign looks like a Asian steak house.

I have been eating at this diner for years and have only been disappointed once, when the Provençal-Style Fish Soup $8.95 was bland. However I had it again a couple of weeks ago and it was delicious as well as the Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Toast $10.95. My husband had the Grilled Octopus .that was out of this world!!! Cooked to perfection, it had a perfect sear and practically melted in my mouth!!! $11.95 and a mountain of Oriental Chicken Salad.$11.50. It ain't cheap but it's good food is consistent. But if you only want a drink there is a very nice bar that is off to the side and semi enclosed.

We have been eating at City Limits for years. They recently did some renovations and modified the menu leaving some favorite dishes off the new menu. The biggest surprise is when you get the check, they have three alternative suggested tips.. Not 15, 18 or 20 BUT 18, 20 and 25 percentage. I don't know what they were smoking to suggest up to a 25% tip for a diner( let alone suggesting that you shouldn't leave 15%). Maybe they don't pay their employers enough and want you to subsidize same. I usually tip 15% to 20 % depending on the service. The suggested range of up to 25% offends me as a customer and shows a lack of respect by the owners. Shame on them!!!!!
