Outrageous Flavor!

Our server, Joaquin was excellent and highly knowledgeable with spot-on recommendations!!! The Ceviche Trio app was incredible and the margaritas (generously sized!) are amazing.

I'm the only person in the world who is repeatedly disappointed with Asheville's restaurant scene so I was truly thrilled to find this place! It came recommended and did not disappoint. Between me and my husband, we had the chile relleno appetizer, the tenderloin, and the rack of lamb. All three were fabulous! We will definitely return when in Asheville... More

First time to this adorable nook and was blown away. Every part of this dinner was top notch. Being a server myself, I see things from a different perspective and our server Brad was perfect. We had the shrimp cervice, lamb, shrimp and beef burrito, and churro to end the night. Perfection. No other words.

Living in Asheville, with so many choices, we had not eaten here since October and went 2/23/15. Consistency is the hallmark of a steady and excellent hand in the kitchen and Limones is simply an outstanding restaurant. There were four of us tasting and sampling each other's dishes and drinks and all was excellent. Rather than recommend a specific dish,... More

Limones has been on of my favorite restaurants in town for years, and that's saying a lot since there are so many wonderful restaurants in Asheville. It is always one we take out of town visitors to and all have been very pleased. The menu changes regularly but they do amazing things with scallops and the lobster nachos are delicious.... More

Loved the food and atmosphere! The service was also excellent! I highly recommend it. The menu had a variety of meat and seafood options and also lots of gluten free options. Very enjoyable experience!

It's true, they do. Make sure you have a reservation or get there early to beat the crowd. There seems to be two waves, the early birds, and the alcohol drinkers - they start serving famous cocktails at noon.

Being from Texas, I immediately skipped over "Mexican" on a list of NC restaurants. However, as reviews were good, I pulled up the menu on OpenTable. This is not your average Mexican. It's interior, Spanish, California...it's unique! The moonshine margarita was yummy, but not for a light drinker. My husband said it would put hair on the chest of the... More

Was our first time here, we had heard some great things about it. The food was very good and they have great margaritas and a huge selection of them. It was quite pricy and you better make reservations for it is a rather small space. Our server was OK, not very attentive, she only stopped by the our table once... More

My friend and I had a very enjoyable evening here. The difficulty for me is that I have a severe allergy to shellfish, and shellfish makes up about 1/2 of the appetizers and entrees. I asked the server to tell the chef to please use care to avoid any shellfish accidentally getting in my meal, and the chef apparently heeded... More
