“Favorite Food in Asheville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

We were staying in downtown Asheville for a week, and ate here twice. Both times we were told that the reservations were booked until late, but we walked over anyway and got seated. ( one time at the bar). Loved the Caliente Margarita and the cerviche sampler. On the next visit, I had the fish tacos and my husband had the sea bass. It is a small restaurant, but has great ambiance and attentive waitstaff. Highly recommended!

“Great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

We arrived at the restaurant for an early dinner without reservations and the host was very accommodating and quick to seat us. Every thing we ordered was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant. If we are back in Asheville we will definitely return.

“Most Amazing Food ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Limones has the best ambiance of any restaurant in Asheville. Dark woods, beautiful art, and lovely high ceilings. Very romantic.

The specialty drinks are just amazing, my favorite is the Blood Orange Margarita. The service is just lovely and sophisticated.

Can't really pick a favorite dish as I like everything on the menu.

You will love walking down Eagle Street and finding this sweet, small intimate dining room with the most amazing tastes.

“of Lemons and Lemonaide”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

Really a 3 1/2 Star review but dont have the option to split one.

Nice casual ambiance. Excellent service. The Ceviche was mosty delicious and well presented. Of the several fish sampled, the shark was tough and while tasty I would avoid next time around. The margaritas are excellent and worth trying. Main dishes were a bit varied. The Sea Bass was excellent and light. Fish tacos were good, but not particularly memorable. Their twist on the Tres Leches cake was quite good.

So all in all a nice dinner and we will be back.

“We'll be back soon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

We were in Asheville for an overnight stop and found Limones. They we very busy when we got there, but offered us a reservation for an hour later. We made the reservation and found a nearby pub to burn off the hour. When we returned we were seated immediately. I ordered the ceviche sampler with red snapper, tuna and shrimp and my wife ordered the lobster nachos. The ceviche was delicious--I liked the shrimp with avocados best and snapper second--not that the tuna was bad. My wife said the lobster nachos were incredible--we made reservations for our return trip before we left!
