Cool place with inexpensive prices – Lime is the place I use if I want to hang out with a small group of friends, and chat and laugh over dinner. I like places like Lime because it's really for anyone, even if you're on a budget. And their menu can satisfy any type eater( I had a friend that was a veg.) I love their sea bass, their salads, grilled cheese and their fish tacos....so much flavor. Lime is a fun place-- been there four times so far. With their prices it's easy to repeat frequently.
Trying a little too hard – Anytime the entire wait staff has to wear coordinating uniforms of short-short white shorts/skirts, low cut blouses, knee high socks do I need to go on they are trying way too hard. The decor was neat but uncomfortable. The best feature being the mini TVs along the bar and even in the bathroom. Drinks were very pricey. Food was fun to eat, especially the mini cheeseburgers and grilled cheese, but just mediocre on taste. In short, nice place to pop in and see but I wouldnt stay for dinner or more than one drink.
very trendy fare, but a fun and plastic place – I thought that this was an above average small plates restaurant perfect for a late afternoon, but pass on dinner. It drowns you in plastic pink hues and lime green lighting. The small plates dare not be called tapas in the traditional sense. The small hamburger slides and the fish tacos top the list of my favorites. The potatoes are good as well as the string beans. The poke was way over salted and the grilled cheese very greasy. The steak was average.The wine list is average and priced accordingly. There are a myriad of fun cocktail drinks. The menu is a bit awkward but in the end; entices a very riske' and metrosexual and gay vague crowd; a bit loud on the music.
One of the few places with great service! – Kudos to Lime! I wasn't expecting much...went there for a late night snack (not much open after 10 pm in the City)...but had a terrific experience on the whole. The food portions are small, the prices high for the quantity given, but we had such stellar service - the best I've had in 5 years at least - that I actually wanted to give them props.
Interestingly, it was the bartender who waited on us, and her vibe was just what the doctor ordered. I never thought I'd go back, to be honest. I walked in, and initially, the place seemed a bit loud/bright for me. But it's now on my list for a return visit. Here's hoping the service is that good all the time.
Glitz near the castro – You can't help but smile when you walk into this place. The decor is stylized, with a white bar and white seats with lime insets in the seats and small tv screens inset into the bar -- with the assortment of odd anime and movie clips showing. Food is tasty smalll bites. Probably the best micro-burger i've had in SF. I'd go back just for that. Filet Mignion was served in strips two ways. Yum! The food is a great backdrop to the scene which is one part Union street, two parts Castro. I'll definitely be going back. A lot!
Castro restaurant/bar hybrid draws neighborhood denizens and party people. – In Short
A casual bar area with low couches occupies the front of the space while a few white booths and tables are occupied by diners at the back. The small plates menu is comprised of largely American fare including the popular grilled cheese, deviled eggs and fish tacos. Specialty cocktails, such as the coconut mojito, are crowd favorites.
You have to try this restaurant – ...enough said. Just go there and you will be pleased with the food and atmosphere. I was!
Just Adorable – I love this place for a mid-week eat. The decor is modern, sleek, but welcoming. The waitstaff are super friendly and it isn't hard to come by a last minute reservation. I have never had to wait for a table once I had arrived. The mixed drinks are inventive, but the wine list is shabby at best. Small plate food is inventive and down to earth. Try the deviled eggs (like mom made), filet mignon in 2 sauces, and the ahi tuna tartare. The best part is that it is not pricy! YUM!
fun fun fun. – i just went to lime for the first time the other night after hearing great things about it for months. i live nearby and was a little intimidated to go because it always looks so packed. but i realized, that's only in the front! there are quite a few tables and we were seated immediatly even without a reservation. we got great service and the food was surprisingly very creative and tasty. i highly reccommend this place.
For big groups... – Lime isn't the best for big groups. First of all, they weren't ready for a table for us when we got there, which is fine because not all from my party arrived on time. But when we were finally seated, they still didn't have a big table in the back for us, and putting the blame on US for being late, when the hostess herself apologized for their own tardiness.
Parking is horrible as well.
