I've been coming to this place for years! Quality food and great atmosphere! Food is fresh with a great selection to choose from. Can be a little pricey but still very good!

This place serves up great diner food with gourmet touches. They are open late and is a great place for brunch. The menu selection is extensive and service is fast and friendly. Everytime I have gone there place is filled. But seating is immediate most of the time. Wont be disappointed.

City Limits has always been good and outstanding for a breakfast out. The service is smooth and the crab cake benefit is innovative. But there is nothing better in my mind than the Corn Beef Hash with whole wheat toast and hollandaise sauce. Yum

Large diner type with large menu and restaurant dishes, but, average results. Pricey for the product delivered. Service not noteworthy. Okay at best.

The food is average, I keep going back, mainly for breakfast in hopes of it getting better but no such luck.

Been many times over the years and it's generally a good place for breakfadt/brunch. The country breakfast is a particular favorite. Easy access from i95 exit 6. Prices ok.

Whenever we go and whatever we order we can count on the service, variety and quality of the food. This is the one restaurant in Stamford that we've returned to time after time.

City limits is located on the border of Old Greenwich and Stamford. It is large and clean with an upscale diner menu. The added bonus is a full bar. Prices are a bit high but portions are large and service is friendly. It is a friendly casual place.

Adjacent to the La Quinta near Interstate 95 in an unattractive area of Stramford, City Limits Diner is convenient for those staying at La Quinta and also for locals who stop by on a regular basis. We were staying at La Quinta and did not wish to venture forth for dinner given a rainy evening. We found City Limits OK... More
