Went to La Limena twice in one week: first for business then for fun. The restaurant was packed both nights and for good reason. Delicious food, great cocktails, reasonable prices for the DC area. Service was a little slow, but to be expected with that...More

Wonderful, interesting food - Peruvian and Cuban-- in a pleasant room. Excellent service. Reasonably priced. Doesn't take reservations but the line moves pretty quickly. Many family groups, but noise level always moderate. A neighborhood gem.

Very tasty food. Restauant was rather full for lunch on a Tues. Note none of the customers were speaking English, which to me is an excellent indicator that an ethnic restaurant has good food. Good service. I wish I lived closer so I could go...More

If it weren't for TripAdvisor reviews, I would have not found this place. It's located in a corner of this shopping area and can be easily missed. The food was absolutely delicious, service was great and prices very reasonable.
