Ladies and gentlemen, this is Limeyard, the all day Californian kitchen that’s got Ealing folk making quite a load of song and dance. This London restaurant is the latest venture from the well-loved Côte Brasserie family (a guarantee of quality, we’re sure you’ll agree), and whether for breakfast, lunch, dinner or drinks, Limeyard’s American-style menus offer plenty of stomach-pleasing plates. You’ll find Limeyard right in the mixer on Ealing High Street where a damn good team wait eagerly to show you a damn good time. There’s little not to love, really, so reserve a table while there are still some going free.
Many songs have been written about California for its sunshine, its beaches and its cheery disposition. Not so famed, however, is Californian cuisine. But all that is due to change with the Limeyard in Ealing. Limeyard is relatively new to the culinary scene but, in true Californian style, it’s already making waves. You’ll find the restaurant on this popular London suburb’s Ealing High Street, not far at all from Ealing Broadway train station and Ealing Green. It’s a relaxed yet vibrant and stylish little haunt, perfect whatever time of day for a nibble or a big fill.
Which brings us nicely to the food. For breakfast, lunch or dinner, here is some of the lightest and most satisfying American food in all of London. Breakfast takes shape in the form of huevos rancheros, baja eggs, smoked salmon scramble and plenty more besides, all of which can be customised with a host of exciting extras. At lunch or early in the evening, Limeyard offer a set menu comprised of signatures like buttermilk chicken and Pacific coast crab cakes, while at dinner, casual diners in Ealing have a fine selection of creative burgers to choose from as well as loaded tacos and a host of little plates to nibble on. This is American cooking at its very best.
Our server was the most lovely and pleasant person! Food was great, ambience was good. We have been a few times before and never disappointed. 5 Stars!!
Excellent service, generous portions and great quality Californian cuisine. The staff were highly attentive, always on hand and willing to advise and help. Prices are very reasonable and it was good to be offered a jug of water for the table, something a lot of restaurants fail to do. We will definately be regulars here in the future.
Great service and wonderful food, as always. Food arrived very quickly and staff were extremely helpful and attentive. We had a great experience all round and look forward to visiting again soon!
Amazing service and food throughout the evening. The pork belly with jalapeno mash and pineapple salsa was really good. My boyfriend ordered the half rack of ribs and wings from the starters and a cup of coffee which was surprisingly big. Fantastic value for money. Would definitely recommend and return back
I was really disappointed this visit to Limeyard. I've been several times - there are a few things I don't or can't eat - meat, wheat and cheese mainly - but I've always been able to find something good on the menu. They seem to always have two fish dishes so I have a choice. The menu appears to have changed recently and now the salmon dish comes with noodles and the other fish dish comes with chorizo - so neither are any good to me. I asked if the salmon could be made with something else - rice, rice noodles, quinoa.... The waitor didn't know so went to find out from the kitchen. He came back and informed me that it could be made without noodles! I ordered it anyway with some fries as an extra. When it came it was just a piece of salmon with a couple of green specs on the top. Surely any decent chef could come up with a noodle replacement!!?? I'm now thinking that all these dishes are pre-assembled and probably delivered to the various branches and that they don't really actually have chefs - and that all they did in the kitchen was to scrape away the rest of the dish. I didn't really want to leave a bad review. I emailed Limeyard central to tell them about my experience - but that was over two weeks ago and they haven't bothered to reply. Such a shame - but I won't be going again.
Excellent! Went there for a special birthday and liked it so much we booked for the following evening for our daughter's birthday. The staff are fantastic and all sang happy birthday. The food was delicious and both of us were given flowers. We live over 70 miles away but next time when visiting our family in Ealing we'll definitely be visiting again. A big thank you to the chefs and all the staff for such an enjoyable time.
Love this place! The atmosphere is nice and relaxed and the menu is really varied. The food quality was great and portion sizes were healthy and good value. Our waitress was lovely and really helpful - she recommended the dessert special which was amazing! The only reason I don't rate it 5 is we had a different waitress for some items and she seemed a million miles away putting drinks and plates down anywhere on the table nowhere near the people who ordered them!
I am so disappointed. Limeyard was one of our go-to places in Ealing. I haven't been for several months, and things have certainly gone downhill. The first thing that we noticed was the service was very slow. The restaurant did not seem very busy, so there really was no excuse. The second and most important problem was the buttermilk fried chicken. This used to be one of my favourite things to eat - mainly due to the delicious peanut sauce that it is served with. I am not sure if they changed the recipe or if there was just something wrong with the sauce, but it did not taste right. It was very bitter and made everything taste terrible. Without the sauce the rest of the dish is simply average. I did mention this to the waitress (when she eventually came to the table to clear our plates) and she was not sure what the problem was. I suggested that she should let the kitchen know in case something was off, but not sure if the message was delivered. I do not think we will be returning. So very disappointing
I went to this restaurant for a surprise engagement announcement. Service was lovely and our waitress entered into the spirit of things with her lively manner and glee when we ordered a bottle of prosecco to celebrate. Food was good and the cocktails are great. We went in the evening - but I've also had the pancakes for breakfast here which are very good
The food was absolutely fantastic. Didn't expect it to be so great and just another average American food place. The sweet potato fries and salt and pepper squid portions were fairly small for the price compared to other places but otherwise I really enjoyed it. The people were so lovely. Definitely coming back!!
