    One of the most underrated spots in the Bay. Amazing views. Full bar (and great bartenders no matter the night). Menu is always on point and the chicken in particular is amazing. Would recommend to anyone, either locals or folks from out of town looking for something outside the City that would delight.

    We came with a couple of friends to celebrate two birthdays. Easy to get in the hotel, find parking and we were promptly greeted at the restaurant and helped. Food was quite good. We shared some appetizers (roasted beets, grilled bone marrow and oysters) and chose a variety of entrees (fish, pasta and ribeye). Everyone liked theirs dishes and I verdict was 4-5/5 stars. Staff was attentive and I just wish they were more knowledgeable about the different options/drinks. Overall, a great experience.

    Our waiter was terrible ( he removed bones and oyster shells from our plates with a bare hand to give us more plate room, instead of just giving us new plates. He didn’t know the dessert menu and just read us chocolate cake, raspberry sorbet, peach cobbler. He forgot to get us things we asked for. Also the food was just ok. The steak says ribeye but it’s more like a sirloin- not a flat cut of beef but a round baseball looking steak. The chicken was good as was the beet salad. Cocktails were good. Overall I felt we paid for a high end restaurant and this is not a high end restaurant.

    We often go to Limewood for special events. I took old friend a few weeks ago and again made a reservation for my family for Thanksgiving. Both times all of our food came at once including the appetizers. The first time it happened with friends I thought it might have been a fluke but then it happened again last night. In fact the appetizers came after the entrees arrived. I was very happy with my turkey entre. The mushroom tartine was awful. Could not eat it. Was on bread. Not a pastry or pie shell. There were only five slivers of mushroom on it. I hope the kitchen paces the dishes in the future. We did get them quickly though. It felt like the kitchen was in a rush to get them out. Our reservation was 8:30pm.

    The property has been remodeled tastefully since Fairmont's acquisition. The decor is sleek and straightforward. Good service. They initially gave us a table for two next to the waiter's station - a very noisy and nuisance area; however, my husband spoke up and asked for another table and it was granted. They serve champagne from Reims, France, and offered a good selection of entrees. the Lamb was delicious! An observation: the side dishes are a la carte, which I prefer; there is no overeating! We will continue coming for a good dining experience.

    Poor service from the moment we arrived. We were seated outside at a table with the sun directly upon us, the table next to us had 3/4 of the umbrella shade and the staff wouldn't move it over when requested. Further, when another party left at a table that had shade, we requested to move there. The hostess, Summer, came over and said "I can't move you it's a fire hazard only 4 people can sit there". (We were a party of 5) 10 minutes later a party of 6 was seated in that space. As for the food, it was mediocre at best. The rest of the service was slow. Don't bother with this place for a nice meal. I've had better all around experiences at less expensive establishments.

    Was disappointed that we were charged $35/person to reduce reservation from 12 to 7 due to flu. We indicated the change the day before reservation. Took a long time for a not full restaurant to bring food, not a terrible thing, however, my food was cold on arrival (Shrimp & grits), everyone else had warm plates. The food wasn't horrible, but wasn't as special as I imagined. The coffee was ok, but we were never offered sugar. Wasn't worth trying to flag someone down... drank it while warm. Server seemed very occupied, I'm sure the Sunday after big game was a busy one.

    My wife and I celebrated our 9 year anniversary at Limewood for dinner. We were seated at a wonderful table with a window view of the the Bay Area. The staff were friendly and congratulated us on our anniversary. The food and drinks were very good. While the restaurant is "energetic", it must be expected. Its clearly a "happening place" with several birthdays being celebrated. That didn't bother us, we were still able to enjoy our special night. The setting and location is a "10".

    The hostess was rude and dismissive. Waited over 10 minutes before having to hunt someone down for service. Waitress was good. Should be noted that at 4pm, I found no "self park" spots available, so Valet was required and had a $10 fee.

    Setting is very nice but the food is too expensive— $16 for a few small strips of fried fish with a dipping sauce! It was just an appetizer but I didn’t want to order the salad with chicken for $27 or even a burger for $25 since I was a guest. My host had a mushroom omelette for $17 so I took my cue from that. Server was nice so no complaints there.

    I brought a friend here visiting from Italy. The service & food were top notch as always. This time there was a table of 4 across from us that was obnoxious & loud. I understand the politics around asking people to lower their volume but it made a very amazing experience a little less amazing.

    Been a long time since visiting the Claremont. It was a nice change and the food was delicious. I felt it was a little pricey. Everything seems a few dollars too much, but like I said, it's been awhile since I was there last. I would go back too, so there you have it.

    We had a beautiful dinner for my partner’s birthday / our anniversary. The host Lannie took such good care of us and our server was extremely helpful and attentive to our needs. We were seated as requested by the window overlooking the twinkling lights of the bay and everything was beyond our expectations :) The food was excellent and the chocolate raspberry bar was the perfect finish. Would come again for another special occasion.

    It’s bizarre that a pricey restaurant in the Bay Area, in Berkeley doesn’t really accommodate vegan diets. Room service is only offered on the weekends, we dined on a Tuesday. I had called ahead to understand if there was at least a plant based burger available and was told there was. The restaurant did not have a plant based burger, and the manager had to see about getting a couple from the room service kitchen. While I appreciate the effort, this disconnect in dietary accommodations when there is very limited food available to in the hotel, one that costs as much as it does, was very disappointing.

    I took my girlfriend and her two kids to Limewood for her birthday. We had the best time. Our waitress was very delightful charming and funny. All the food was good. I had all appetizers and I highly recommend it because they’re really great. It’s a little expensive but I think it’s a great value. Terrific ambience, such a beautiful hotel and restaurant.
