    OpenTable Diner Since 2003
    Dined on 7/28/2010
    My cousin and I ate here on Peruvian Independance Day. We decided to sit at the bar for dinner. The bartender (who was also our server) was very nice and patient while we asked all sorts of questions about the menu. We started with the Tiradito de Pescado which was delicious. The empanada de carne filling was a combination of sweet and savory in a really light dough. We just had to try the Lomo Saltado (steak over fries), which was good, but not the best we've ever had. Overall, a great dining experience. Excellent service, good people watching, decent menu with lots of options for everyone (even vegetarians), and strong drinks!

    Completely a last minute decision to eat out in the Mission. Chose this location based up availability found on Opentable. Made the reservation on OpenTable mobile while driving (I was the passenger of course). It was 6:20 and made the reservation for 6:30pm. Thanks to Open Table we had a fabulous dinner at Limon. Will definitely be coming back to this location.

    Service was spotty and our main server never cracked a smile even though it was my birthday. We seemed to have two servers who were unaware of each other? The restaurant was so loud we had to shout to be heard at our small table of four, dessert was not worth ordering again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 7/21/2010
    I have eaten lunch and dinner at Limon many times prior to it reopening. I also frequent the Limon Rotiesserie on South Van Ness. But this lunch on Valencia was very, very disappointing. The Pescado Limon tha both my guest and I had was extremely over salted and not as good as before. The chef clearly added too much salt to the spinach and everywhere else in the dish. I should have sent it back but didn't want to make a scene with a guest in tow. The place was near empty and this may be a reason way.

    Dined on 7/20/2010
    This was the first time that we have eaten at Limon since it reopened after the fire. We had eaten at there - both at the location that burned and the first small location - many times; we enjoyed it very much and recommended it to many friends. We were disappointed in the menu this time. It seems that it has become more "generic" and has lost the Peruvian touch as we remembered and enjoyed so much. We're hopeful that Limon will return to a more authentic Peruvian menu.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 7/20/2010
    I was really looking forward to Limon's re-opening. I have been there 3 or 4 times since and have not been as impressed as before. The Ceviche Limon portion seems smaller, the empanadas not quite as crunchy, the chicharones de pollo dry, the lomo saltado smaller and its flavours not as subtle as before and the grilled steak was more than ordinary... Can't quite figure out why the food has lost its "Waow factor" but I wish Limon got their groove back because it had been my favorite restaurant since their opening up to the tragic fire.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    We went for Sunday brunch. Though we had a reservation, we had to wait for 30 minutes to get seated. Service was very slow. It was my friend's birthday outing, though it was mentioned ahead of time, received no recognition to it from the waiter. This place is obviously under staffed. Only two waiters were covering 15-20 tables at that time. Their labor was probably maxed out for taking and filling the order,mixing cocktails, etc...so no room left for attentive service. The food, Ceviche, omelet, Emponado Vege. , are fresh and good. Any forms of cake were available at that time in the desert menu...mmm!!??? Perhaps if we dine on Tuesday night, we could get decent services.

Food and service were excellent! Presentation was also excellent! Wait-staff were very nice and not nosey. We appreciated that. THANKS SO MUCH for an enjoyable evening which was what we were looking for.

    First time at Limon. Loved it. Service was prompt, helpful, cheerful, and non-intrusive. What more could you want? Great wine recommendation from the server. Best ceviche I've ever had, definitely. Will be back with friends based on our experience.

    It was my first time dining in Limon. The service was spectacular. The food was good, portion is fair (if you're not a big eater). I took a few out-of-the-country friends to dine in Limon, telling them that Limon has good reviews. However, we were a bit disappointed that the food was very Americanized. Aside from the ceviche and the espenadas, the other dishes were not very Peruvian. I have better Peruvian food in Bernal Heights.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 7/10/2010
    We had a reservation but there was not a table ready for us when we arrived. So, we were happy to park ourselves at the bar and enjoy a carafe of sangria while we waited. We were caught up in talking and didn't realize that 30 minutes had passed with no communication from the hostess. When we went over to the hostess stand, it was clear that we'd been forgotten. What is the point of a reservation? The food was pretty good. The best part was the ceviche sampler; Ceviche Nikkei de Atun, Ceviche Limon, and Ceviche de Camarones. The Ensalada de Vegetales was disappointing; bland vinagrette and an odd mix of veggies. We selected Pargo Rojo for the main tp share, it had a fun presentation and tasted fine. Too full for a sweet treat at the end.

    Dining experience was really good. Except with the shocker I got a week later after being over charge in my credit almost giving me a heart attack! And when speaking to the manager he was apologetic and assured me he was going to fix it, but the damage is done. Wont be coming there any time soon or ever.

    We were a party of 5 with a reservation on a Friday night at 8 PM. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated promptly, upstairs at a high table. The restaurant was moderately full and the noise level was high. The services was good and extremely fast. The busing was excellent. The food was very good but not extraordinary. We had wine, a mango mojito, cava, the special lobster ceviche, fish ceviche, empanadas, Lomo Soltado, deep fried fish and desserts. The cost was reasonable. We enjoyed the meal and will consider returning.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 7/2/2010
    Our service was good (waiter and wait-staff assistants made it all happen quickly), but our food was too salty for our taste. Even the plain white rice was very salty. We tend to run into this habit of chefs over-salting in the better restaurants, so perhaps we just under-salt here at home compared to everyone else. Not sure, however, we don't run into this problem at friends' houses, so I suspect some restaurants tend to over-salt, unfortunately. Salt-lovers should go! Good menu & great ceviche.
