Reservations were hard to come by, and there's a reason - good food (a bit skewed toward ceviche and citrus-flavored dishes), and good atmosphere

My husband and I went for dinner. We don't drink so I can only talk about the food. For a foodie city like Asheville, we just don't get the hype about this place. The food was decent, but nothing great, especially for the price. We liked the pork sopes appetizer, but not much else. The pork chop I got for dinner was flavorless and tough - I had to saw through it just to cut a piece off. My husband got scallops and said they were okay.
The waitress was very attentive and the food came out pretty quickly, but I don't think we'll ever go back.

Six of us went to Limones on a Sunday night, have to have reservations since they are so busy. Our waitress was friendly and attentive with our crowd. We all had a different margarita, since they are about a dozen, favorite was the peach chipotle. The menu changes often, depends on what is available at market. Had the pork chop based with tomato and pinto beans soup, very good. Friends had the ceviche which was outstanding.

We hadn't been to Limones in probably five years, largely because our first visit was marred by overly hot/spicy food that didn't go over well with one of our party. This visit was excellent. The space is attractive, our reservation was honored promptly, and the service was reasonably good. The best part of the evening was the food; it was excellent. Among the four of us, we ordered lobster enchiladas, two types of ceviche, Mexican shrimp and grits and duck confit. The dishes were plated beautifully and the items were all delicious. For dessert, we ordered the flourless chocolate cake, which was a real winner. Prices are on the high side but we didn't complain.

Interesting and creative cocktails. Meals also interesting and creative...and absolutely delicious!! Definitely try the lobster nachos. One of our top two favorite restaurants in Asheville. Definitely have a reservation if you want to ensure seating. It is popular for a reason!
