My husband and I enjoyed our food but in truth felt a little abandoned on the customer service front. Much of this is driven by the unavoidable layout - one small dining area at the front of the premises. We could not see the staff or staff activity. The food was very good and we would return on this basis,... More

We visited last night and I can say it was one of the best meals I have ever had! The staff was amazing, really accommodating with my allergies, had well labelled separate menus and we're happy to answer any questions. We ate from the ala carte, risotto for him and savoury brie and avocado cheesecake for me. Wow!! The main... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a mid week meal at the Lime House following a hectic Xmas. Between two couples we sampled much of the menu. All delightful reasonably priced and friendly service.

This was our first visit ti the Limehouse and we found the lunch menu excellent value for money. A good balanced choice for all 3 courses and a good range of wines to go with the food. The restaurant is well placed for a quick lunch in the middle of a shopping trip. We will visit again later in the... More

Interesting and varied menu. As a vegetarian I had a choice so full marks. Wine selection small but good. Vintage port superb. Great service.

We selected this place in Trip Advisor based on the menu which was one of those you have trouble selecting something as all looked wonderful. The place itself you could walk past and never see as was very ordinary looking. The food however was really excellent with good service and was well priced. If they could sort the door they...

Me and my girlfriend visited the the Lime house restaurant for her birthday. We had never been to this restaurant before but decide to go here to try somewhere new. As far as first impressions go we were very pleasantly surprised. This restaurant is very intimate and personal ideal for couples wanting a quiet romantic meal. The staff are friendly... More

Had a great night out at the Lime House and although we have lived in York a long time had never tried it before. I went with my husband for a nice quiet evening and found this a good choice and very romantic and cosy. A great selection of food and wines and would recommend to anyone looking for an... More

The Lime House is a lovely place to eat, meet and be merry. Excellent food & wine & a relaxed and friendly atmosphere are complemented by welcoming staff, soft candlelight & intimate jazz music. The regularly changing menu has a Modern British flavour and all dishes are prepared freshly to order, using local produce. Good Vegetarian choices are available & specialist diets such as Gluten Free or Vegan can be catered for with advance notification. A delightful culinary experience.
