Excellent fresh mexican with great crowd – This is a great place to take guests from out of town. It is a downtown hideaway on Larimer Square. I chose the margarita mahi mahi special. It was amazing. I have never cleared my plate as fast. A geat vibe with a young crowd. Beautiful staff and great atmopshere. I can't wait to go back!
Don't Bother Lime on 6th Avenue – Went to Lime on 6th. It looks like a bad attempt to create a trendy Mexican restaurant. I went with a friend and we were seated. The chairs and booths are black and there was chip crumbs over many of them (kinda gross). There were many dirty tables and I think one waitress. I had the Spinach Quesadia and bean soup-Neither had any flavor. I didn't try the margaritas so maybe it's one of those places you just go for drinks, because I wouldn't go back for the food.
LOVE this place! – I have frequented Lime since it has opened many years ago. Every time I go, I receive the best service and food. I have brought many out of town guests here and everyone loves it. Their chips and salsa are the best in Denver, and the Scorpions are phenominal as well!! This place is so nice, but is not full of pretentious people like some places here in town. Thank you for always delivering a great experience Lime!
Fun For Big parties, great margs – Lime is a fun place early and late. The chips are really good. The frozen margs are fantastic. Usually frozen drinks are weak but these babies have a kick. We love that they will take large parties without making us order a special menu. WE have done lots of birthday parties there and they have always been a blast. mY favorite entree in the chile rellenos. Real whole chilies with a crispy, not soggy and eggy batter.The patio is awesome in the summer. Lime is one place in Larimer Square where you don't have to spend 50 bucks for a good meal>
LOVE some LIME! – I have been a loyal customer of Lime for the past 4 years. The food is incredible, and the staff is so incredibly friendly and warm. Try the scorpions appetizer if you haven't had them--they are the best!! I will continue to go to Lime because they continue to make myself and my guests I bring happy.
Great customer service, great staff, best looking early weekend crowd – Lime is one of Denver?s best spots to mingle, enjoy margaritas, and eat great food. The ambience of this location is fabulous, with bright colors, lively music and one of the Denver metro areas best restaurant and bar staff. This restaurant is most enhanced by the bartenders, the waiters, and the wonderful management. The manager, Kate, brings a great energy to this local and is a definite asset to Lime. She is always friendly, social and working side by side with her team while mingling with patrons. This location is the best place for young, hot, twenty something?s to celebrate birthdays or really any occasion. This spot attracts one of Denver?s best looking crowds, which can only be rivaled by the great food and staff! I would rank Lime as one of Denver?s best spots to go if you?re as selective as I am, they really do get everything right! Cheers!!!
Good chips, but not much else worthwhile. – Wasn't pleased when I came in last week. We were seated quickly, but at a small, cramped table. The restauraunt was relatively packed, but not enough to warrant the server taking 10 minutes to greet us, at which time he simply breezed by, stated his name, and left. When it was made clear that we weren't ordering alcoholic beverages, and that our bill would be small, we were left well alone. The server's assistant took quite a while to refresh our drinks, and we had to ask two people three times for more chips, which arrived 15 minutes later. I had thought that, since the chips were quite delicious, the food would be good, making our experience a little more worthwhile, but I was dissappointed. Lime is very clearly a trendy attempt at Mexican, as evidenced by it's subpar food. I won't be dining again.
Uninspired food & poor service – Thanks (or blame) goes to Rick Bayless for spearheading the upscale Mexican restaurant revolution. I've been fortunate enough to eat at his Frontera Grill and found it to be fantastic. Lime, on the other hand, is not. Limited seating without an option to make reservations for parties of less than six people forced us to sit on the patio (despite calling ahead that afternoon). It was a chilly October evening and one of their two gas heaters ran out of fuel half way through the meal. We were cold, the food was bland and the service wasn't much better. We sat at our table for 15 minutes and finally had to ask who our waiter was. The lady, who was nice enough, promised to find out. Five more minutes later, she came back to say it was her.
I can forgive the service and seating arrangements, but the food just was not good enough to warrant a trip back. The rellenos were deep fried nothing, the beef enchiladas had little flavor, the fajitas added little to what they serve at Chilis (this is NOT an endorsement for Chilis), and the tamale, although the best of the bunch, was a little mushy, and like everything else-bland. The chili they serve with most dishes is ok. The red being the better of the two but still strikingly similar to the type you get out of a can from the grocery store. One exception-the scorpions were tasty. Maybe it's a place to sit at the bar, eat an appetizer of scorpions, and have a drink (if you can put up with the obnoxiously load music). But I would not recommend it for dinner.
Red Robin for 20-somethings – What happened to this place? It used to be the defacto meeting spot for a quick, affordable (really good)dinner or round of drinks before hitting the town. It's turned into "Red Robin" for 20-something girls. I had reservations for 8 people on a Saturday night and it took them 1 hour past our reservation time to seat us. When we finally did get seated, we were surrounded by nothing but birthdays and bachelorette parties with posters hanging from the wall - "Pary Like a Rockstar, Stephanie!". The food was good (as always), but not good enough to compensate for the myriad of issues. The music was laughably cheesy, unless you're into "Sweet Caroline" and tunes from the Risky Business soundtrack. I'll keep this place on the list next time I have a birthday party to throw for a 21 year old girl. Until then, I'll get my fix of this lame stuff when I'm confined to the suburbs.
squeeze this lime anytime! – I love this restaurant! the chips and salsa are the best in town, by far and the margaritas are delicously strong without cleaning out your wallet. I often bring people from out of town just because the food is so good and the atmosphere is a rockin good time. Lime often has theme nights or parties with costumes that are lots of fun--the white trash party with a keg of PBR, corn dogs, tater tots and all the staff dressed in their best wife-beaters, mullets and Nascar gear. It was hilarious! Always a good time and always good food & drinks. This place is an absolute must visit if you haven't already!
