I had lunch at Limon with a friend. The food is delicious - I had arroz con mariscos and it was excellent. In retrospect, it would have been a better idea to order several dishes and share them - the portions are modest in size. The dishes on other people's tables looked very tempting too!

Came here for dinner with a friend. Ambience was cozy, drinks were great. Had the pollo a la brasa, ceviche mixto, and lomito saltado. Everything was very flavorful. Would definitely come back here again!

We have dined at Limon a few times. This was the first time we took our adult children there. At first we thought it would be a challenge for our daughter. Boy were we wrong. She liked everything we ordered. The wait staff were patient with the questions the kids had about the food. You can't go wrong eating at... More

I went with the roasted chicken, without a doubt, but I'll have to go back and try the rest of the menu. Honestly, I want to try every single dish there, from the tacu-tacus to the empanadas and ceviches, everything looked amazing! Not expensive at all

My boyfriend and I love to eat out, maybe a little more than we should, but when we found Limon we found we were able to have a classy night out without feeling remorse at the end of the night when the bill came. You can have a wonderful dinner here, that competes with the other trendy places on this... More

On a recent trip to San Francisco three of us visited this restaurant for dinner - my daughter says it is one of her favorites. The ceviche was exceptional - very fresh and flavorful with good texture. We shared a whole roasted chicken - it came with three sauces, which I was anxious to try, but the truth is the... More

We ate three times in this Interesting peruvian restaurant with a diverse menu, enjoyable service and a relaxed atmosphere. I highly recommend the Pisco Sours!
