Limon Rotisserie - Valencia Ratings and Reviews
He ido otras ocasiones y esta ves el servicio no fue tan bueno, se olvidaron de partes de nuestro pedido y tuvimos que esperar mucho para que nos atendieran ya estando en la mesa... el churrasco estuvo muy simple, casi no tenía sabor... la leche de tigre, espectacular!!! Y les recomiendo mucho el Maracuyá Sour!
Great food, amazing service, friendly staff, and happy faces all around. However, uncomfortably packed. Second time here but will certainly come back and highly recommend! A great place obviously attracts a crowd and people love to talk when happily digesting food :) lol
Had expected more Peruvian styled dishes but the dishes didn't come across to have that style or flavor. We had the ceviche, rotisserie chicken, short ribs, rib-eye, and beef tongue. Ceviche was great and super fresh. The rest were all OK. Good price-performance in the red wines we ordered.
Not sure if anyone reads these but I just wanted to say I was really disappointed this last time. I’ve been several times and this was the first time I’ve been made to wait until the second person of my party arrived. I explained very politely and enpathetically to the host that we were trying to speed things up to make it to the theater, but still they insisted. Then, once my friend arrived we were sat at a terrible table in the middle of the server walkway. I requested another table because I have a hearing impairment and she said sorry even though there were multiple better tables. Finally she offered upstairs which was just fine. Not sure why someone would treat a frequent customer this way. I might likely never go back because of this terrible experience. The key to hospitality: always provide customers options and go the extra mile.
Nasty service - hostess informed us the minute we walked in she would give away our table if our full party was not at the restaurant within “3 minutes” (half our party had accidentally gone to their other location a few blocks away). Once seated we waited 20 minutes for someone to pour us some tap water let alone take our order. Food is average (rotisserie chicken is a salt bomb). Won’t be returning.
We decided to celebrate our engagement here with close family (party of 5), and though our server was pretty terrible (order was wrong for an entree and appetizer, also forgot to bring drinks several times throughout the night), the management made up for it even though we hadn’t complained and comped some items.
The food was terrific, and we understand sometimes staff has an off day here and there. Regardless, I’d dine again at this establishment.
Limon has been one of out two top restaurants for special occasions, but after our past two experiences. We decided to not go back. The service was very poor. We didn't get our drinks, our main dishes were delivered before the appetizers, and one of the appetizers never came. It was also a struggle to obtain service. We didn't even have water. Very sad, but we are moving on to picking another favorite restaurant.
While the food is very good, the staff was a huge letdown. Hostess very unfriendly (commented by others waiting as well), there were open tables downstairs, we had a reservation, but were seated upstairs which is devoid of ambiance. Service extremely rushed like they just wanted to turn the table. We were considering another drink and asked our waitress if there was seating at the bar and we would give up our table. She said yes. Went downstairs immediately and there was no seating. She just wanted to get rid of us. We left very disappointed in the evening.
This was our first visit, and we were extremely pleased ... we will definitely return next time we are in SF. Friendly service; delicious combination of flavors and fresh ingredients; reasonable corkage $15. The special arroz and rotisserie entree was superb; popu a great side dish; ensalada side is good healthy portion; comp fried chicken entree was a great treat!
The food is phenomenal. I’ve gone twice while visiting a friend when in town. I had the opportunity to bring 5 colleagues with me this last time and everyone loved everything. The paella and chicken empanadas are to die for as well as the ceviche. Don’t miss out!
Food was excellent as always. But this branch has a very frustrating way of dealing with reservations: when we arrived, we were told we'd need to wait 20 minutes for a table, despite having made a reservation. When I protested loudly, they somehow found a way to seat us sooner. But do we really need to begin a meal with an unpleasant interaction?
I love Limon, the food, and I adore the Peruvian drinks...just the basic one is my fave, along with ceviche misto is all I need to be very happy! And it’s right near my favorite hang outs. The only problem is that everyone else loves Limon as much as me and now the noise level is har to bear and I feel rushed by staff. They are frantic trying to accommodate us all, and we are packing in there. If you get there 15 minutes late, you will loose your table on a busy night (every night). I still recommend it and and will return and return for my Pisco and ceviche misto after crossing the street from Good Vibes then crossing again afterwards to see Bombshell Betty’s Burlesque show at the Elbo Room.
Limón had great service. Super attentive and friendly. Food came out almost too fast but we also dined early and the restaurant wasn’t full yet. The food was amazing. Ceviche mixto was perfect because we couldn’t decide which one we wanted. The rest we ordered and shared. Whole chicken, Saltado,Empanadas. Drinks were made perfectly and tasted great. I highly suggest the pisco sour. The chocolate bandido finished the meal. The rich fudge center and coffee ice cream were perfect together. Highly recommend. Thank you.
This used to be one of my favorite restaurants, but to be quite honest the food and overall experience has been depleting the past few times. They used to serve 3 sauces now its only one and even the food has not been as good. I might give it another chance, but as of now rather disappointed.
Location is great as we were watching a film at the Roxie. We were given a table by the window so we enjoyed people watching.
This place is more than energetic in terms of noise level ... I don't think I would return here when there are many people, we happened to pick a time when the restaurant was not packed, i.e., late afternoon. Other reviewers commented on the noise level, which was a concern of mine, as part of dining is not just having good food, but good conversation, too.
Food-wise, it was good and tasty, ... reasonably sized portions for the chicken and 2 sides plus our drinks. The salad was a little over-dressed, so next time perhaps it should be given on the side. My husband enjoyed the sangria; I gave him mine and ordered a margarita, which was more suited to me.
Food was excellent. Service was too fast...everything arrives within minutes of ordering, and everything arrives at once. I have never been to a real restaurant, except perhaps a Chinese greasy spoon, where everything arrives instantly. Slow down folks! Let us enjoy our drinks!
