This was my second time here in two nights. The food here is prepared with care to flavor and presentation.. Our order came to our table hot, fresh and fast. It's located just a leisurely 5 minute walk from the BART station in the Mission district. The service is attentive, but not intrusive.

Great food and drinks. Service was also awesome and quick. It's a bit tight and quite loud, so not reccomended for any kind of intimate convo. But I really loved the place and the food was pretty damn amazing. Will go back for sure!

Limon has a reliably delicious menu. Having been a long time patron, it is disappointing that the portions go down and the prices go up, but I guess that's par for the course in SF. That aside, the food is very good. If you are willing to put up with the noise level and shout at the person you're with who is seated 3 feet away, go for it! Yum!

Had been to Limon not too long ago for a Sunday dinner with family so was not prepared for the "scene" that bursts forth on Thursday early evening. Incredibly loud and difficult to hear conversation. Waiter was friendly but always in a hurry to dash away without taking order etc. Food was not as good as I remember it....

Great food, and a nice menu for sharing. There were five of us and we ordered a whole chicken and three dishes to share. The music in the restaurant was very loud, such that conversation was a little difficult.

My reservation indicated I have a baby. When I got there they won't accommodating to my request. Was asked to fold up my stroller but was told there is no place to store it at the restaurant. Did not like the front of the house, she was not very pleasant.

One of the waiters saw that I was struggling with my baby, he made sure my food came our quickly so I can have dinner and leave because the restaurant was really noisy. Thank you for being so observant and helpful.

Usually we love this place. We had some friends from out of town. Truffle Mac and cheese tasted like nothing. Rest of the food was ok but it's usually great. Service was not good at all. It was like they forgot we were even there. I almost asked the table next to us to order since they seemed to be getting served. Too many restaurants around to go back there again.

We have returned many times to Limon for the utterly reliable, delicious rotisserie chicken and sides plus drinks. The cocktails are great, and the wine (a sauvignon blanc this time) tends to be outstanding and reasonable. We enjoy the Peruvian side dishes and the fantastic ceviche... one of the best we have had. It is pretty noisy, so we try to go at less popular times (when they first open, on a weekday). Definitely a favorite.

Friend was in town for a conference and we wanted to catch up. Food was excellent but noise made conversation inaudible. Service was poor-we ordered our drinks, a sangria and a beer, and had to wait 20 minutes at which time still not served. Our food had already arrived 10 minutes earlier. It would've been appropriate if they have comped us for drinks.

Limon is great for groups. It does get loud at times. The food is good with great service. Highly recommend the rotisserie chicken and the octopus. They have a great selection of Spanish and South American wines as well - the garnacha is my favorite here.

There was a table with people screaming and making the dinning experience for everyone around them miserable to the point everyone around them was begging to be moved to another location. The restaurant did nothing to resolve the issue and allowed it to go on
Service was extremely slow and the appetizer came out with the meal what had to ask 4 times to get the chips for the ceviche

Overall a really good restaurant experience. Get a reservation, it's worth it to have a table waiting for you. Great original cocktails, with different liquors than your average SF restaurant. Try the iced tea with brandy for a twist on a refreshing drink with a summery dinner. Chicken was perfectly roasted with really good yuca & sweet potato fries. Beet salad seasoned just right with veggies cooked al dente. Pana cotta amazing with fruit purée. Service was excellent, super capable waitress. It's busy & a little loud and tables are close together. But it's a fun atmosphere and friendly so you might talk with people near you. Neighborhood is rough around the edges but with lots of entertainment. We went before seeing a film around the corner at the Roxie. I'd definitely go back to that area just to have dinner at Limon again.

Food and drinks are more than decent, although portion sizes are small meaning I had to hit up a taco stand on the late night creep to make sure I went to bed on a full stomach. God bless The Mission.

Service was well below average. We were asked to leave before we finished our last round of drinks because a "local sports team" needed our table. The owner made shallow efforts to compensate us. His exact words were "If we had room at the bar I'd give you all comp drinks for the inconvenience." Instead he chose to do nothing except leave me with a bad taste in my mouth.

I don't care if Michael Jackson came back from the dead and wanted my table, let me and my friends (who I hadn't seen in over a year) finish our meal. And manage your reservations correctly instead of making us "lowly" patrons sacrifice our good time for the sake of celebrity. It would seem like a good business pracrice to treat all customers with dignity regardless of their percieved status.
