“Best Lamb Chops in NC”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Mother's Day trip to Asheville was topped off with wonderful dinner at Limones. We made reservations on our open table app. It is a good thing since they were booked till 8pm when we arrived at 6:30. The service was very good and friendly greeting of "Happy Mother's Day" was nice. I had the lamb chops and they were the best I have had since our visit to Ireland. Martha had the scallops and we can highly recommend them also. Limones is a little difficult to find and not much parking. If in Asheville for dinner don't miss Limones. The menue is on line with photos, but the choices are difficult.

“Can you say, OMG!?”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

SO GOOD! Excellent reccomendation from the owners of Asheville Seasons B&B. Just absolutely loved the food here. One of the best meals. Have to try the Cucumber Mint margarita. Had 3! Between appetizers and our entrees, so good! So many more things on this menu I want to try. Scallops were excellent and the Sea Bass. Oh, you have to put this restaurant on your list of places to dine. Truly fantastic! I could make another trip to Asheville just to come here.

“Florida snowbirds return to Asheville just for Limones”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

We found Limones last year on our return trip from Florida to Chicago. This year we put Asheville on our trip just so we could return to Limones. Again this year, it was fabulous.

The menu changes often. This year I had the lamb chops, served medium rare atop a pea risotto, spinach, and garnished with a cilantro pesto. The well seasoned juices from the chops mingled with the other elements to create a spectacular dish.

The long list of specialty margaritas is great fun. I was intrigued by the cucumber/mint margarita but opted for the berry/ habenero. WOW.

The service was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. The atmosphere is casual, comfy, and cozy. Even mid-week, reservations are suggested.

If this restaurant were in Chicago, it would be heavy competition for Rick Bayless!

“What a nice surprise!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We recently had just the best meal at Limones. The menu is sort of "New" Mex-Cali with a touch of the Caribbean! We started off with an interesting mix of fried plantains and guacamole and salsa chips, their take on salty and sweet and it really works! The plantains were perfectly prepared and the guac was just the best. Then we went to short rib sopes and fried trout, again both perfectly prepared. The wait staff was very attentive and knew the menu front to back. The tequila menu is quite extensive, including flights if you are so inclined. We had the traditional margarita and while it was great, I would say that our only disappointment is that $9.00 is pretty stiff for a margarita. We will be back. There is so much more to explore on this menu!
