Went to Limon for a post Valentines dinner. Food was excellent but service was lacking. Server took our order and disappeared. We received our food from someone else and someone asked us if we wanted water but didn’t return with any. We had to flag someone down for water when tables around us were getting glasses and carafes of it. After our meal we also had to flag someone down for our check. Our waiter was nowhere to be found. No offer of any other items or dessert. I really felt unwelcomed at this restaurant. Good food but no hospitality.

I've always gone to the Limon on So. Van Ness but wanted to try the one on Valencia. The vibe at the Valencia restaurant was much more colorful and energetic, perhaps because of the location. The food was very good; I love their roasted chicken and yuca fries. The drinks are incredible. The service was professional and friendly, but a bit off; maybe because it was so busy (this was a Saturday night). I highly recommend Limon on Valencia.

We had such a wonderful meal… I brought friends from out of town and it was the best restaurant we had visited. I always return.
The problem I had the other night was the wine. The server was so helpful in giving me three different ones to taste. All we’re unsatisfactory. The evening before we went for dinner the dinner was horrible but the wine was excellent :). The prices are very high and that is why the winds should be Exceptional. I hope the next time I return the red wines are much better.

We were glad not to be in a rush, because we had quite a bit of time between placing our dessert order and receiving the dessert.

We brought our son here for his first birthday dinner since he loved the food the last time we were there. We went fairly early for this location at 6PM on a Friday so it was perfect for us since the crowds did not trickle in until we were almost done with our dinner. All waiters, bussers, and host/hostess were very attentive and friendly. From all of the times we went to Limon, everything we ordered was so yummy and executed perfectly. We are looking forward to our next visit to Limon!

What an amazing restaurant. Some of the best comfort food we’ve ever had. The roasted chicken was so tasty. I highly recommend for a date night or just a family night out. Thank you for having our table ready at our reservation time. Wonderful staff. They were all attentive and professional. Can’t wait to go back again!

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!

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.

First time here. Waiter was helpful with suggestions for our party of four. Everything was tasty and reminded us of the fast food rotisserie so in Peru. Would go back again for lunch when not as noisy. We have gray hair.

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.
