We had dinner there tonight and this is only the third time I have given a restaurant this rating. We started with a glass of Chardonnay that was very good. I had the Lobster Nachos since many previous reviewers recommended them. They were excellent and were a complete meal.My wife had the shrimp and grits. That's her favorite meal. She... More

This was a 1st trip to Limones for 3 of our party of 6. They were blown away by the combinations of flavors. It was the night before Thanksgiving and we truly had much to be thankful for. Highlights (in no particular order): lobster nachos, bread pudding, ceviche sampler, and chimichurri shrimp. Scallops cooked to perfection but were Very salty.

Great, fresh food, exceptional cocktails, wonderful service, and upscale dining crowd. Impressed all around. You must get the lobster nachos. Everyone else will be!

Great ambience- hidden jewel. Delicious Margheritas!!! Ask the waiter for the most popular one because they are so hard to choose from. The food was very good and filling too. We had the Lobster Nachos for starters and they were wonderful!! We will go back as the vibrant scene is contagious .

Excellent Ceviche & Lobster Nachos. Fabulous service. And the caramel bread pudding is to die for. Great date night or a fun place to share with friends.

Had Huevos Ranchero's for brunch on a Saturday during a busy busy weekend in Asheville. What I loved about my meal was that each component was distinctly flavored and worked together as an amazing meal!! Nicely decorated tucked away on a side street, try Limones out!

The cuisine is Pacific Coast Mexican. Ceviche to die for , go with the sampler. We ordered 2 appetizers and they were plenty to share as a dinner for both of us. The lobster nachos are the most interesting nachos I've ever devoured. The drinks are fantastic. Blood orange Margarita and cucumber margarita were our favorites. This ain't your Taco... More

Loved this place - excellent food and excellent service. We went for my husband's birthday and it was just amazing. The mussels were 5 stars and so was everything else. Had chocolate Bread Pudding for dessert that was delicious. Highly recommend it!
