    The ambiance was amazing, very clean and simply decorated place. The sangria was good, not too strong which is how I like it. My friend order a steak dish and it was perfectly cooked and the truffle mac and cheese is delicious. But I ordered a chicken with pasta and pesto and I found it a bit dry which is why I gave the food 4 stars. Other than that it was a really delicious meal. Totally coming back here for the tapas.

    We had a reservation and were seated right away, only to wait almost twenty minutes before someone came to talk with us, even longer for the food, and they never came back to check on us, fill our drinks,etc. Previous visits to this restaurant have been exemplary, the food is really divine and the staff is always friendly, which is why were were surprised. In this visit, there seemed to be only one waiter for the whole place, who was rushed off his feet poor guy. It appeared the bartender tried to help him as much as possible, they kept it going as best they could and were cheerful, but we were surprised at the low staff, especially on a Saturday night?

    The food quality is consistent with the other Limon locations. The only downside is they do not offer the full menu as the others. During our visit the following items were not available: Tartara de Tuna Arroz con Mariscos It won't stop us however, from visiting this location when the other spots are fully booked.

    MOTHER'S DAY. I was so happy to be able to secure a reservation for six here as I have been here before and truly enjoyed our dining experience. But upon arrival, and out of all days (Mother's Day), the restaurant was closed! Why would OpenTable allow me to make a reservation when the place isn't even open on that day? Please adjust this feature as it is an inconvenience to your users who depend on your service to check hours of operations for them. This totally ruined my very first Mother's Day as a new Mommy:(

    Dined on 3/8/2014
    We were a party of 7. We went there because the delicious peruvian food.. but they said that they charge everything on weekends. "Lomo Saltado" is a traditional plate and of course comes with rice, but they charged it separetly. My mom ordered "Pollo a la Brasa" and they charged for the "aji" (spicy souce) and for every sauce they gave us. Plus.. they gave us extra plates that we did not ask and of course.. they charged for that. At the end.. when we took the food to go... they did not include the sauces and rice that we already paid. As soon we finished the food and paid... the waitress came and said that they needed the table and told us to go out. That was not polite at all. We are not going to come back again.

    We've dined at Limon about 15-20 times now. Guess that may express how we feel about this restaurant, WE LOVE IT! Every visit we've made, the waiter/waitress have always been very helpful and polite. We have yet to walk out of this restaurant disappointed. Limon is the restaurant to go to for the best peruvian food in town! Yes, this is where you will find the best chicken, ceviche, and more!

    You can order anything here without going wrong. My regular staples include ceviche, empanada, chicharron de pollo (basically their version of Korean fried chicken), and the sweet potato fries. Note, though, it's hard to find vegetable-focused plate on the menu; meals at Limon are heavy on the meat and seafood. We brought a baby and the staff was nice and accommodating.

    We were always looking for a great restaurant neat the South San Francisco area where we often stay the night before a plane. Limon is 5 miles from the hotels at Oyster Point. The food is delicious, fresh, flavorful and portions are generous. The ceviches are fantastic as is the rotisserie chicken and the paella. I thought the prices were very reasonable. Parking is easy as they have their own parking lot . I will definitely return.

    The food is flavorful and presentation is done well. However, the meat we had was not very fresh. The chicken was severely overcooked so it was tough and dry. The shrimp was verging on bland and the beef was also a bit tough.

    I was sooooo happy when Limon opened their store on 3rd Street - 5 minutes from my house. Food is consistently good - as good as their other stores; this one is much quieter, so very good for dinner conversations. They've recently limited their hours to the weekends only.

We stood around for a bit before anyone came up to us and asked if we needed help. But they made up for it! The waiter was fun, polite, and efficient! We will be back....

    My husband and I took a friend here for a birthday dinner, and everything was cooked to perfection and the service was great. The chicken was perfectly seasoned and succulent and all of the small plates and sides were delicious. My favorite truffle mac and cheese has never disappointed, and was smooth and creamy with just enough truffle oil to not be overpowering. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, the staff is always attentive, and the kitchen is consistently competent with the quality of the food.

    I discovered Limon when searching for restaurants near Candlestick Park, as my friends and I were attending the concert and wanted somewhere close to eat. Although our reservation time was quite early for dinner (315pm), it was Friday and we treated it more like late lunch, happy hour and early dinner all wrapped up into one. The food was delicious! We had the tuna tartare, shrimp and fish ceviche, papas fritas, rotisserie chicken with trio of sauces and truffle Mac and cheese. All the flavors were well balanced and very tasty...portions were perfect. The staff was nice and attentive, the space bright and comfortable. Overall great time!

    After an afternoon hike with the dog at Ft. Funsten we checked out OT for a new restaurant close by. The reviews seemed good and there were other locations as well. We were hesitant given the other reviews citing it was in the ghetto. Well it was far from a bad area for sure-well gentrified- it was pleasant. The food was excellent. Crisp, not greasy empanadas with sauce; luscious ceviche-quite a healthy portion of fresh shrimp and fish; rotisserie chicken was so moist and tender!!!! the sauce trio was a treat lovely short rib small plate with perfectly cooked veg could have been a meal. The Sangria and signature sake cocktail were tasty and well balanced. would highly recommend this spot!!

    My friend and I treated ourselves to a weekday lunch. Parking was easy in a garage. The high ceilings, floor to ceiling glass windows, cool tones, concrete floor, and sleek dinnerware created a modern vibe. We found the list of cocktails exciting but settled for refreshing strawberry lemonade being a workday. We enjoyed the light crispy beef empanadas chock full with filling, the moist signature chicken, the sweet potato fries, and the lightly grilled vegetable assortment. Another highlight was the service. Accommodation in describing the dishes, refreshing our water, efficiency in meal preparation, and pleasant smiles were key. Small details down to which take out bag was hers and mine were appreciated. We highly recommend this place!

    I love Limon! I have been to the one on Van Ness and just tried the one in Bay View. The one on Van Ness is always booked on weekends. So I tried the Bayview location, perfect. I was able to make reservations for Saturday on a Friday and when I arrived I was greeted by the hostess. He sat me down without having to wait for my party to arrive, even though, they arrived shortly after. We ordered quickly and the food arrived within minutes. Great service and same quality as their other locations. I think people just don't know about the location, but it's a great spot to check out.

    Food is AMAZING: i suggest the empanadas (we tried all 4) - the chicken is a must and so is the beef: definitely recommend the place. Location is ok near the ghetto area there is no street parking.The place is small yet cozy, we got our table fast, the service was good with friendly staffs. Service was a bit slow, or they were short staffed. I liked that they have free wifi and its not so noisy inside where you wouldnt have to yell just to talk to the person sitting across from you.

    Great food. Everything is solidly delicious! The ceviche is the best you'll get in the city. This Limon location is quieter than the others, better for having a conversation and less good for feeling cool. This area of Bayview looks perfectly nice, modern and clean. It's a little unnerving that the streets are empty at night. But don't be scared off simply because of the name of the neighborhood

    I work in South San Francisco and this isn't too far. It's just 2 exits away. They have plenty of free parking. Restaurant has modern decor and an engergetic vibe. Food was good. We had ceviche mixto which has a simple and clean taste. The seafood they used was very fresh, and the big kerneled corn had a toothy texture to it, which I love. We had the chicken empanadas, which was good, and the Jalea, which was ok. Service was very friendly and attentive. Finished dishes were cleared and drinks refilled in a timely and unintrusive manner. Prices are reasonable. We'll definitely be back.
