Limones came highly recommended by the owners of our B&B (Crooked Hill Inn) and did not disappoint. This is an upscale "creative Mexican" restaurant, with fresh, interesting ingredients that make you think about the flavor combinations -- not run-of-the-mill tacos etc. We shared the mussel appetizer, which was absolutely splendid in a coconut milk and jalapeño broth, and more than enough for two people. My husband enjoyed the lamb shank burrito, an ample size cooked to perfection. I had the sea scallops (plump, juicy and tender) with pesto mashed potatoes and mushrooms. There are many tempting menu items, as well as specialty bar drinks -- including some very interesting margaritas -- and a great wine list. Reservations are a must unless you dine late; the restaurant is small and intimate. Service was excellent and our waitress Marla took great care of us and was thoroughly familiar with the menu and ingredients. Entrees between $17-34. There is no "kid's menu." It's a fabulous "adult foodie" place!

The food here was unusual and excellent. The place is small so reservations are highly recommended and if you can get in, it is a dinning experience. Three friends and I had an amazing meal, each item was unique and full of flavor. We thoroughly enjoyed Limones and they have great bar drinks also.

Absolutely delicious! Highly recommend the lobster nachos! They were amazing and very different from traditional nachos. The lobster meat was very high quality and tasty. We had a couple of their specialized cocktails and they were delicious and could taste the alcohol.

Not especially kid-friendly menu (though kids are welcome), but the dishes are beautifully prepared and very delicious. Excellent combination of flavors.

Perfect from the time we walked in the door. Our waiter was exceptional. Although the food was amazing (and several vegetarian options) what I remember most were the drinks. The peach chipotle margarita was the best I've ever had. Do not miss this spot!
