A Gastronomical Delight!

All of the outstanding reviews turned out to be correct. This was an amazing meal for all three of us - the scallops and accompaniments were delightful! Will reserve a table on my next visit for sure!

Tried to make a same day reservation for a time that would work but they were already booked. Did a walk in at 7pm and had dinner at the bar and had a great meal and experience. Food was excellent and will definitely plan ahead and will return.

I had the Haddock with mushrooms & (I substituted Brussels Sprouts for eggplant), I licked the bowl clean. For a starter I had the lobster nachos. What an amazing dinner. I can't wait to return.

We (a family of 4 with 2 teens) had Sunday brunch at limones while in asheville. We got to the restaurant a few minutes before they opened at 10:30am (highly recommend doing so). We ordered steak and eggs, bacon and chorizo hash, and eggs with smoked salmon.we also got a peach and pecan cake (their signature dessert) and churros for... More

The restaurant is small, so it's best to arrive early for Sunday brunch (they open at 10:30 and by the time the people waiting in line when they opened were seated, the place was full). The food is amazing. All prepared to order when ordered and the portions are huge. Truly authentic Mexican cuisine.

The food is not what you would expect. And it is wonderful. I had lobster enchiladas and my husband had a shrimp and rice dish. Good wine list too. We had to wait a few minutes for our reservation so the hostess brought a complimentary salsa and chips sampler to our table. Fun atmosphere and friendly staff.

Limones has no need to market. The food and drinks are among the best in town. The margaritas and Ceviche alone are worth the trip. Creative, fresh, always changing. Locals know this! It is rare to find a reservation on Open Table so call or walk in early. Fish is always good.

This was our first visit to Limones and we will definitely be back! We were seated in one of their two window two-top tables, greeted with a glass of bubbles and congratulated on our anniversary and the top-notch service continued from there. Great explanations of the wine list, food menu, as well as learning more about the owner, chef, and... More
