    Fun night! Chef/owners were lovely. Staff was extremely friendly. Food was good though limited menu. Cocktails were unique. Especially loved the Blueberry Lemon Drop Martini. Thought the lights could have been dimmed a bit for better ambiance. All in all had a wonderful evening and will definitely return!

    Lime is wonderful: dishes are perfectly cooked & seasoned. Chef Petal creates richly flavorful food that still feels light - filling but not heavy. So far we’ve tried the wings, roasted shrimp, Caesar salad, cod, salmon, curry, and seared tofu. They make their own tofu! Sangria was delicious too.

    Lime is an incredible restaurant. From start to finish, everything was absolutely fantastic. The ambiance, the service, the cocktails, the FOOD! Chef Petal is a true culinary artist. Lime has my highest recommendation.

    Lime is a wonderful new addition to the Boston food scene and a true gem of a neighborhood restaurant in Chelsea. The ambience is perfect for a date, a family get together, or just a quick meal at the (well-stocked) bar. The service is attentive and genuine, as we felt well taken care of. The food is the star of the show, of course. The menu is varied and reasonably priced - from comfort food (wings, burger) to elegant and inventive dishes (salmon with Vietnamese sweet potato!). If you’re a vegan or vegetarian, fear not because you have plenty of choices. One thing that we truly appreciated was that we could hold a conversation even though the place was hopping. We really enjoyed our date night here and look forward to returning to try other items on the menu. Highly recommended!

    "To 'Lime' in Trinidad is to spend time, play and eat with family and friends, to appreciate your surroundings and ties and to celebrate life." The quote above is taken from Lime Chelsea, a wonderful addition to the Chelsea waterfront neighborhood dining scene! Petal Joseph, owner and executive chief, has created an upscale delectable international fusion menu rooted in flavors from Trinidad that truly delights and satisfies. For course 1 my partner and I ordered the potato crips and spicy tofu vegetable soup, both of which were excellent. Course two included the Curry Cauliflower and Chana, Uncle Andrew Salad and Basmati Rice as well as the Seared Tofu, Balsamic Onion, Carrots, Radish and Greens. Both were elegantly presented, at perfect temperature and utterly delicious! I still find myself daydreaming about the taste of the Seared Tofu two days latter! We rounded off our dinner with mango sorbet and chocolate mousse, which were the ideal concluding taste notes to what was an overall Chelsea Lime symphony of palate, presentation, ambiance and service! We left filled, but with no leftovers. Portion sizes are reasonable, but not excessive. Their bar is also notable, with a thoughtfully curated wine, cocktail and specialty drink menu. In short, Lime Chelsea is a one-of-a-kind upscale neighborhood restaurant. All dishes are handmade and high quality ingredients, which was evident from our dining experience. While we imagine Lime Chelsea will become a regular destination for local residents, it is also a destination dining experience worthy of a commute or drive. Parking is available on Winnisimmet St as well as Broadway in Chelsea, MA. There are also public lots beneath the Tobin bridge within a 2.5 block walking distance to Lime Chelsea. If you are looking for a new restaurant to try we highly recommend Lime Chelsea--it will surely live up to it's namesake!

    Lime offers an eclectic offering of small, locally owned and often woman run libations which were phenomenal. As a group we sampled a lovely wine, pomegranate lemon drop, cosmo, and beer. Appetizers were great! Clams (though the bread was tasty some hoped it was toasted but that didn’t bring their review down), wings were amazing, and the veggies and fruit with tsatsiki was delish! Next round main course: tofu dish with homemade tofu was a hit, the braised short rib though rich and looked heavy did NOT leaving your feeling anything but satisfied. Others had burgers that were spot on for taste however some felt the bun was slightly too big but again all were completely satisfied and more than happy with their meals. Finished off with French/pressed coffee which tied it all up in a near bow. I would say a slam dunk for a soft opening and can’t wait to return!!!

    The experience at the restaurant was very nice and a great ambience, I had cousins that came to visit from another country so I wanted to take them out for dinner and decide to come to “Lime”. The service was excellent, the staff was attentive as well as courteous and I enjoyed the pretty large portion of delicious food. Had a wonderful night, thank you to the staff and service

    Very poor service. We weren’t checked up on for drinks, one app came in very late, the other app forgotten, and we received our meal very cold (after two hours of waiting). We arrogantly were charged for what we had and the apology felt very insincere. The check didn’t match the prices on the menu either but I realized that after leaving so my boyfriend was over-charged by a couple of dollars. They didn’t remedy the situation by offering anything either. They will sadly also close like Winnisimmet Lounge, but not because of the pandemic. We went down to Caio’s to eat good food. We ate at Caio’s and paid the check in less than 45 minutes. I support local business.

    Thank you for dining with us on the first night of our soft opening. We are still working out all the kinks. Speaking with you last night, we sincerely apologized and asked how we could rectify our mistake. You seemed accepting of our apology and declined any remedy. We hope to prove you wrong and provide better service with the help of your feedback. We reimbursed you the remainder of your check. Thank you for supporting one of your new local businesses.

    The food at Lime is incredible; a stellar use of spices and sauces and everything cooked to perfection. The space is perfect for an intimate dining experience or a energy-filled evening with friends. Tasteful decor, attentive staff; I give Lime my highest recommendation. Lime at Lime - you won’t be disappointed! 💚
