Ick. – For starters the hostess was rude and told us it would be a 30 minute wait, even though there were a lot of empty tables in the restaurant. We went to the bar and had a few drinks...35 minutes later we will still waiting for an actual table. Wish we did not waste money on drinks waiting...
Food was gross. Our waiter was too busy talking to other waitresses and ignored us. I will not return.
Yummy, Strong, Fun..... – I just moved to the area from Atlanta. I found this cool little spot. My girlfriends and i went in for dinner this past weekend. We had a blast. The pitcher of house margaritas, although inexpensive, were of complete quality. Our server was outlandish and over the top, but made sure we were entertained and having fun. the food was delicious. The chips were addicting but worth it. When dinner was over we moved to the bar area. great d.j....and although we made ridiculous requests....he managed ;--) we had a great experience all around. I recommend this place to anyone looking to have a great time!
One note - this is NOT a quiet place on the weekends!
Will never come here again! – If you want good Mexican food, go to Tamayo or Rio. If you want good margaritas and a fun atmosphere go to the Rio. The staff at Lime was very rude, and the bar and bathroom smelled like p u k e. I ordered the fried shrimp poppers and they were cold and mushy.
There are much better places to go in Denver than here!!!!
Medicore food, tacky night spot – I have been to the Larimer location a few times, including a birthday and an after work event and both times was really turned off by the just-turned-21-and-can-drink crowd that make up a majority of the clientele--or those 30-somethings that wish they were 21. The food is mediocre--nothing to write home about--though their chips and salsa which they bring to all the tables are really yummy. Their drinks are pretty good--my mojitos and gin and tonics were very strong which was a welcome change!! Overall, however, the restaurant turns into a tacky club at night with bad dj's and a crowd that is nothing short of obnoxious. I wouldn't rule out going again, but it is certainly not a restaurant/bar in Denver that I would recommend if you're going past 6pm, especially on a Fri or Sat.
Best restaurant/bar in Denver! – My friends and I have been fans of Lime since it opened back in '01. The atmosphere is so nice, the prices are very reasonable, the bar and surrounding area is a great place to hang out with friends, and the drinks are amazing!
I would suggest this place if you're searching for a nice atmosphere without the snobby staff and just wants to have a good time. Lime is a great place to bring out of town guests too!!!
Average food, strong drinks – Lime
Call ahead is definitely something to do if you intend to eat here on a weekend ngiht. The front desk gals get snippy, so make sure you get there on time, and don?t ask any questions. We waiting a bit, less than they anticipated, so that was a bonus. The patio was packed and not available, so we were seating in the center of the room ? and IT WAS LOUD! It was damn loud! The chips and salsa were excellent! Fabulous flavor. I went with a house margarita - and it was STRONG! Too strong. Not even enjoyable strong. There were at least 4 bridal parties there.. Offa! The bartenders were busy as could be delivering the drinks that get given to brides that you can?t put into words in city search! I went with the combo plate, it was less than spectacular, friends went with the Chimichangas and they really enjoyed them. We also got some Scorpian Bites (jalapeno wrapped shrimp, stuffed with spicy jack cheese). They were not hot, flavor was ok. And when we did get our food it was not nearly as temperature hot as I would have liked. I can?t say I?d got back for dining, maybe Taco Tuesday?
best date spot – I almost forgot how much I love Lime! One minute, you're standing in the middle of crazy Larimer Square, and then you walk down rhe stairs into cool and hot LIME! THe servers are funny, smart and hot! always!
Irts the perfect date spot. The food is really good (chimichanga!!!) and cheap, so you can splurge on drinks. It's downtown, without the bad parts of downtown.
Hip place without the high price tag – This restaurant is one of my favorites here in Denver. If you're looking for a trendy atmosphere with good, reasonable food, I really suggest you come to Lime. I attended my friend Samantha's bday party here this past Saturday night and had a very positive experience. I had homemade tomales with a margarita and both had wonderful flavor. It was really nice being downtown in a hip establishment without putting a massive dent in my wallet! I will be returning very soon.
Fun Restaurant! – I brought my girlfriends here for my birthday party a week ago and had the best time! The staff was hilarious and really catered to our group. I love the chips and salsa here, they are very filling though. The food portions are very good size so be sure that you come HUNGRY! I had the smothered burrito and we shared scorpions for an appetizer. Everything tasted great. Trendy atmosphere without the attitude---which is why we keep coming back!!
Salt, Salt, and more Salt!!! – I like salty food and when you eat Mexican food you expect it to be salty. But their chicken tortilla soup was so salty I couldn't even eat it. Then when we told our waiter it was too salty all he said was "yeah we have been getting that complaint lately". I didn't eat it and they still had us pay for it! I would never recommend this resturant and I will never go back.
