“The best Carribean outside the Carribean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2009

There is nothing bad to say about Limones ... everything is always perfect. Try the pomegranite margarita, or any of the dozens of other margaritas offered by this restaurant. The ceviche is fresh every day made from different fish ... the meats are top-notch. And the decor is simple but stylish. Take a long look at the specials ... they're always the best. Limones is on Biltmore Avenue ... a street of cute shops and one of the best art theaters in the South ... the Fine Arts Theater. Limones will become one of your favorite stops in Asheville!

“Delicious creative California Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2009

We've enjoyed a number of excellent dinners at Limones, and it was my pick for a recent birthday dinner. It didn't disapoint - I had a delicious chile relleno stuffed with eggplant, feta, and mushroom, on a bed of quite delicious millet (I think) in an interesting herbal sauce (remember this is innovative dishes, not traditional!) The tasty mango salsa and slaw that accompanied the chile relleno were excellent. My husband had an equally delicious dinner (a spicy free range chicken burrito that was WAY beyond any normal burrito). We both enjoyed an interesting twist on a caesar salad, with a refreshing light dressing. Not to mention the fruity olive oil-vinegar-toasted nut dipping sauce provided for fresh bread.

“In the top five of Asheville's best...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2009

Really like this place. Been twice and both times the food, service and vibe are spot on. An Asheville converted old retail space, the look is inviting and interesting. Likewise, the menu and wine-list are vibrant and anything but cookie-cutter selections. A fresh face for seafood and the homemade truffles at check time are special... Fun and inviting, honest and homespun all at the same time. Can't wait to go back.

“Great Food, but a drunk patron blew our eveing.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2009

I visited here with clients for the first time in March. The service was quick and good and the drinks were really unique and tasty. There was a table of three, two gals and a guy who might have known the staff up by the bar. Occasionally and for no reason, the guy would just start yelling. Everyone would stop, stare and then go on about there business. The third time it happened, a server came from the bar and I guess told him to get it together. The food was wonderful and my California clients loved it. I think we would have had a total "10" had the staff been able to get the intoxicated fellow under control sooner. I will go back.
