Ate dinner here tonight. No wait, fantastic and quick service. We had the empanada (fabulous) and tamale (good) to start. Then both entrees were fantastic, fresh, and served hot. I am not a Peruvian food expert but this was good eats, for sure. The price seemed a bit high but this is DC metro so that's no surprise. I highly... More

The only reason I am not giving this restaurant 5 Stars is that every time we go we feel rushed by the staff to order quickly, eat quickly and leave quickly so that they can seat other guests. The food is delicious and they have the best Mojitos I have ever had with the exception of Caesar's Palace in Las... More

Love this place! We had a short wait before being seated, so chatted up the guys in front of us who've been here several times. They recommended the ceviches, the seafood chowder, the flounder and basically all the seafood and chicken dishes. After being seated, our waiter suggested a couple different non-alcohol drinks, and we tried the passionfruit - sublime!... More

We live in Virginia but sometimes drive out to Maryland just to eat here. The place always seems busy. On our most recent visit, we had the fried trout, the chicken fried rice and the Peruvian chicken. Nothing disappointed. Everything was tasty. The fried fish in particular was very good. I think this place is family owned and it gets... More

We have dined here and had carry out many times. Everthing here is delicious and always top notch. The seafood soup is my favorite. With crab and crabmeat and fish in a delicious tomato broth is wonderful. The rotisserie chicken is never dried out, flavorful and juicy. Deserts are made in house. The service is always great and prompt. Anna... More

The staff is friendly and eager to please. The decor is good although the tables are a bit cramped up. We had the yuquitas relennas, yuqa croquettes stuffed with crab meat as a starter. The main course was Ossobuco con tacu, a thick moist and tender beef steak with its bone in, and served with a Peruvian rice cake. We... More

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!
