We have two other couples that we travel with and socialize with on a regular basis. Two weeks ago we decided to spend a night out using gift cards and The Lime Lite was our choice of venues. We have been to this small but busy restaurant numerous times. It did not disappoint. We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation (you should do this in advance), and were promptly seated at our time. Three of us had the Prime Rib and three had assorted fish options. All were amazingly tasty and ample. It is the BEST Prime Rib each of us have had in forever! The cut was large for the regular cut, cooked to perfection and the most tender that we have each had in many years from a restaurant. One person had the halibut (excellent) with accompanying side dishes, one had salmon (excellent) with different accompanying side dishes, and one had sand dabs (excellent) with different side dishes. The waitress was attentive, thorough with describing our choices, and checked back numerous times to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. We will definitely be returning soon to this restaurant.

First time dining at this classic landmark in Fresno. Great atmosphere and great food. Service by Cassandra was excellent. Prawn appetizer was tasty. Wedge salad was huge with homemade croutons and more. Salmon was outstanding which included red quinoa side with squash. Make sure you vist this restaurant.

We almost did not find the restaurant as we were heading west on Shaw and there is a huge tree completely blocking their sign. They are just west of Palm on the north side of Shaw. As for the service and food? Both were excellent. We enjoyed their lamb, a bit spicy with the chimmichurra sauce, and the homemade pasta special of the night. Loved the pasta! They serve bread and butter before the meal which was very good. Our waitress, Lindsey, was very attentive and helpful in explaining their dishes. They are doing some remodeling on the front patio so there was the hum of tile cutters, etc., during our meal but not to the point of being disruptive. Will we go back? You bet! Enjoy!!

My husband and I eat at The Lime Lite usually once a month. The food is delicious and the service is fantastic. The restaurant is very cozy with nice dim lighting. The bar is so nice and inviting. The outdoor patio is great all year long, they have heaters for the winter which makes for a very comfortable setting. Everything we have eaten at The Lime Lite is so good, the steaks are cooked perfectly and always come with fresh, tasty sides. If you order a starter salad make sure you ask for the harvest mix which includes nuts and raisins. This is also a great place if you are just in the mood for appetizers and cocktails.

Had to kill some time so I stopped in for a drink. Great atmosphere, excellent selection of liquor and friendly bartender. All that at a fair price.
