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...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.

Not the best Peruvian food in area. Unfortunately, the chicken was on the dry side and the service was extremely slow. The black beans were bland. The shrimp salad was the highlight of the meal. The manager was very friendly.

The place is not really fancy, but who cares when the food is good? I had the ceviche - it was really good and original, with cancha, sweet potatos and real white corn. The lemon sauce, though, was a little bitter. The side of fried...More

Nice place in the suburbs.Good food,attentive ,friendly service .Frequented by a mixed clientele.Many Latinos, so the food has to be the real deal. Great value.The rotisserie chicken's especially good but also try the unusual dishes that are offered,often as appetizers e.g.corn/chicken pudding.
