Consistently good food, especially the fish and seafood ceviches - it has great pisco sower and very good deserts. Service is excellent

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've listened to friends rave about La Limena for months, and finally met a friend there for lunch today. She had the chicken with yucca and salad, I shared an empanada with her and had the La Limena Salad. I got piccarones for dessert (yum).

Busy, crowded, noisy and all fun. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Be prepared to wait as there are no reservations. Our meals were universally delicious.

The food is good. It must be as it is always packed to get a seat. However, though it is good, it's not great compared to other options in the are.

I have loved La Limena - until tonight's bad experience. It took a while to get a waiter to come to our table, and the ceviche and pisco sour were good as usual. I ordered my favorite entree, the one I order every time because I love it so, lomo saltado. My companion ordered it as well, having seen me... More

This is an excellent restaurant with superb food deserving of its place on numerous "best" lists for the Washington Metro area. Excellent Peruvian cooking with a light and flavorful touch. People stand on line to get in for good reason. Worth a trip.
