Great service . The food was delicious. The dishes had the typical seasoning (not Americanized). No waiting in line.

During our first visit to La Limena the owner came to our table to greet us...that's how well he knows his loyal customers...and the seafood soup was excellent. We've been back several times to try more Peruvian dishes and enjoy the cheerful atmosphere. We haven't tried many of the Asian dishes on the menu, because that's about all we cook... More

I was very excited to try La Limena based on the reviews. i was shocked that I had never heard of it before, since I live close to Rockville. Maybe we ordered the wrong choices. My Cuban steak dish had very good flavor but the steak was too thin -- probably not even a quarter of an inch thick. [Perhaps... More

The food and atmosphere here are both great. We came for a late lunch but the place was packed and people were still arriving when we left at 3 pm. Give me a place like La Limena over one of those high-end trendy places that often seem so much alike!

We eat there quite often. They don't take reservations so sometimes you have to wait. The place is clean and the staff is very nice. The food is good. I love their shrimp soup and their fish. You must try their yacca and people say their Peruvian chicken is great. . They have special ice cream that is out of... More

This is about the 5th time I've eaten here. I went in tonight and, as usual, the food was outstanding. Starting out with the fact that it was Peruvian Independence Day, the place was absolutely packed. For starters, we had the corn pie appetizer. I have no idea what it's actually called, but the waitress knew exactly what I was... More

Very tasty and wonderfully presented Peruvian food. Try the anticuchos and Lomo. Yum to Tum. Seating is somewhat limited so get there early. Enjoy!

What a wonderful place. If you'd like your pick of authentic Peruvian food, this is the spot. Everything we had was wonderful. The flavors were spot on and the portions were extremely generous. I would've given them five stars except that the chicken wasn't marinated before roasting, which I would've preferred.

Thank jamison_james
