Fantastic food in a relaxed atmosphere. New goal is to try everything but always order ceviche! Am I at one hundred characters yet?

We ate here on a Friday night for dinner. We couldn't get reservations for earlier than 9pm. Our service was good-but the food didn't live up to the reviews. We started with the ceviche sampler-2 were good but the other one was not very good-it was cod and it tasted like it had been in the frozen and was very... More

We came here for brunch on a Sunday. I have to admit that my opinion of the place was already lowered after we sat down and saw the menu had veal on it. Both of us enjoyed the food we ordered, but it didn't seem too special considering the price. I have had better breakfast for much cheaper. We also... More

The seafood stew is yummy, if the bread I ordered later could be a hot one it would be even better, And I love bar sitting!

We visited “Limones” Restaurant on Eagle Street in downtown Asheville and were satisfied but it was not what we had expected based on the other reviews. In short we were disappointed with the offerings that came to the table. They were acceptable but did not have any distinctive taste that one would expect from a highly rated restaurant. In fact...

Limones is located about a half block off Biltmore Avenue. It has a nice atmosphere in a really nice space. The menu was not extensive but certainly more than adequate - my criteria - several entrees I could have ordered and would have been satisfied. Service was attentive and the tables well spaced that you could easily hear who you... More

The menu looked amazing, but perhaps it was because we went on a Monday night that the food tasted like it might have been warmed over from the weekend. The Brussels sprout appetizer was served in a bowl, that didn't look very appetizing, although, taste wise, they were the best thing I had. Rice was Uncle Ben texture. Scallops with... More

Had great dinner after the LaZoo tour. Walking distance. Not your typical Mexican food. Get the lobster nachos as an app.

Very popular and you can see why when you taste their food. Everything our party of 4 had was great. Lamb. enchiladas, salmon just marvelous. Good drinks, I liked the coconut mojito and desserts. Put this one on your list for sure.
