Limewood is always great! We were a large party and the food was delicious and timed well. It is always loved by our out of town guests. View is also amazing.
We always do brunch here when we stay at the Claremont.
The hostess and servers were very friendly and service was great.
Everyone loved their food although traditional shredded
crispy hash browns would be better than baby redskin potatoes for breakfast (just my personal preference).
The chicken and waffles were a standout!
Will be back the next time we’re in town!
Truly fantastic service - personable but not too personal, attentive without being suffocating. Love the view, everything was perfectly cooked and well seasoned.
Nice view from the patio. Good service. Food is fine. Nice space.
Always the best service and meal!
spot was chosen based on central location for business lunch with folks coming from all over east bay and thought parking would be easy. Parking was difficult, with self parking full and valet parking $7. Menu was too limited, and very pricey, with very small portions (burger and fries $25), although the food was very tasty and the view cannot be beat. I don't know if dessert menu or coffee is any good as it wasn't offered before bill was presented. They did split the bill for us which was appreciated.
This was a 71st birthday dinner , the Claremont has a three generation history for my wife.
The Limewood has a special location ( in Oakland not Berkeley) that allowed it to have a bar when the hotel was built.
Food and service was very good.
As a Fairmont it has a large commercial and conference traffic, a large , very loud group was besides us and it was hard to have a conversation over dinner.
Great food but way, way too noisy! I could not hear the waiter tell us what the special was for the evening.
Anniversary. It was great
Even though they are not on the menu for this restaurant, my friend and I ordered the burger. It was perfect, so big and juicy. Perfectly cooked with all the trimmings including yummy slices of heirloom tomatoes and a really crispy pickle. The fries were superb and the ketchup not your standard (seemed homemade maybe). The service was delightful with attentive waiters who happily fulfilled all of our requests. My only regret is that we got there just after sunset which would have been great to witness as the place has superb views of the bay and city and a beautiful outdoor patio. Can't wait to go back!
My friends and I go once a month and always have a great experience
I love the limewood restaurant. I spent the day at the spa and ended the day with a wonderful dinner with a few friends. The food was great the service was great and the view is unbeatable. I will come back sooner rather than later.
Great service, delicious food, creative menu, fabulous view. Perfect place for a pre-concert drink and meal.
Service was very disappointing. We were celebrating our 7 year old daughter’s birthday and John was our waiter. He got our food order right but there was no enthusiasm or special attention during the service. Frankly he didn’t seem too excited to be there and seemed annoyed. I don’t think he even said happy birthday to our daughter when he practically threw her birthday dessert in front of her. So disappointing, especially since he has worked there for a long time.
We are regulars at the restaurant and have seen all of the transformations throughout the years. Service has always been an issue which is such a bummer since the restaurant has the most beautiful views in the Bay Area and has so much potential.
The food was fine. The menu has not changed in a year almost. The green pea soup was so delicious and delicate tasting when they first put in on the menu almost a year ago... it’s now kid of lacking in seasoning and missing the delicate flavors and ingredients that it needs. The bone marrow had too much green parsley slathered all over it and one could hardly taste the small amount of marrow that was in the bone. The hamachi was good but could also be improved.
Lastly, no likes that ketchup that they serve, don’t know why they can just stick to the basics of Heinz tomato ketchup?!
The restaurant’s menu has changed and no longer offers the Chicken Hash on their Brunch menu.
The Brunch menu on-line still has the Chicken Hash option available, but the restaurant does not. Website needs to be updated, otherwise my party and I would have skipped going there altogether if we knew it was no longer being served.
Table / reservation was also not ready on time, had to wait 15 min and got a super large table for 8 instead of 6. Awkward!
Waiter was best I’ve ever seen! Better keep him at Lime- wood, he might just be recruited by an even-better restaurant!
The service was terrible and this was not a one-time experience. For everything from drinks, food, and the bill required a lot of waving or getting up and asking someone to help. Probably my 5th time and always the same poor level of attention. Best to go and just order some drinks at the bar.
The Halibut was over cooked twice so we ordered pasta which was undercooked. The Hamachi crudo was unappetizing and the flavors were not complimentary to each other. They need a new chef!
That is really lovely restaurant! a beautiful view of the sunset.
Always a pleasure for the views, the food, the people, and the outstanding service.
Fabulous view from the outdoor deck, and delicious cocktails. Service was just OK and the food was disappointing. Everything was beautifully presented but each dish we tried was very under seasoned and bland; that didn't reflect the menu descriptions at all. We ordered several appetizers and they were overpriced for what we received, but it is in a Fairmont so a large bill is predicted. Glad we could go outside because the noise in the bar and lounge area made it impossible to converse. I'd say definitely go there for cocktails and the view - only if you can get a seat outside - and go someplace else for dinner.
Had a table with a view of the bay (nice!). Our server was friendly and accommodating. The food was very good. We had a lovely time.
The location is great, the food was OK, the service could have been more attentive, but I would not return for the simple reason that we could not carry on a normal conversation because of the overwhelming noise of people yelling to be heard, kitchen clatter and other background noise.
Really enjoyed our meal here. The window table with a view of the whole bay is a nice touch. The food was simple but tasty. Not overly large portions for the money, but it's to be expected at a place like this. Service was very inconsistent. Our waiter disappeared for long stretches, didn't refill water or ask if we needed another glass of wine. When he did come around he wasn't exactly friendly. The atmosphere and food more than made up for it, but top-notch service really would have made this a perfect meal.
Great food. Great service
We were here for lunch
No special event it was about 5 minutes away from our place And they had their own parking
Which is already a leg up than most restaurants in the Berkeley and Oakland Hills area
Food was mediocre
But the view, relaxed atmosphere, the crowd, location, and off course parking makes the cost acceptable
The service was not bad. But for an upscale restaurant I kind of expected more
Its inside the Claremont Hotel which is a country club so a lot of the customers were members. So, they got more attention maybe because the service people knew them well
The views are great and I’ll probably be back if I had guests from out of town. Or if I don’t want to go looking for parking
We sat on the patio which was the only saving grace. It was a beautiful night. The food was bland. The service was barely tolerable. For the prices I don’t recommend. The Bar however was fun and the bartender Max was attentive and engaging.
Beautiful Location and view. Friendly reception. Great salads/ appetizers and creative main dishes. Luscious dessert.
Second time around at Limewood Bar & Restaurant and the restaurant was just as good as the first time. There are great views if you get a window seat and on a warm night outdoor seating can’t be beat.
Strip was excellent. Service was superb
Nice location, good views from Patio. Good food. Very enjoyable experience.
We had some breakfast here before a spa appointment. Food was tasty and service was quick and efficient. Lovely place. Would definitely return.
Beautiful view coupled with a classy breakfast made for a great way to celebrate a birthday! The eggs were cooked perfectly, the service warm and friendly. It is s little spendy but a great spot for a treat.
Excellent service, good food, lovely ambiance, but very loud on a Saturday night.
Yes I would recommend the Limewood bar and Restaurant , the service was super excellant as the waiters were extremely helpful .
The Food was very salty, especially the fish.
the Salad was great , nice mixture of fresh olives and frozen grapes and romaine lettuce w/nuts.
Outdoor seating is the best!!
Room was overly noisy, my food was overcooked, the menu selections were very limited, and the pricing was excessive. On top of that, they charged for parking. I would not go back. There are much better values and more extensive menus!
This place is a jewel. What great views, the food and the people that work here are all very good and friendly, just wish they had more help with the service( it sometimes takes a while for your server to attend you, so you can’t be in a hurry) love staying at this hotel.
Food was bland
Service was good
Drinks were good
But overpriced for the food and drinks
