Limon Rotisserie - Valencia Ratings and Reviews
While the food and ambiance were excellent, one of the wait staff continuously attempted to remove our drinks and plates before we were finished. This happened 5-10 times during the course of our meal, twice we had to ask him to leave our dessert plate and by the end of the meal he removed our water glasses without asking. I can take a hint but if I drop $150 in a restaurant then I expect not to be ushered out.
This place is getting very popular and as a result has been loosing its personal touch. The portions of food have been getting smaller and turning into a tapas style restaurant which is ok. The fish fillet was not that impressive. We also ordered the spare ribs and they were dry but the sauce was good. The best thing is to stick with the specialties like Lomo Saltado.
Limon was highly recommended by a friend and may I say, it was all they said it would be.
I had ceviche and it was A-MA-ZING!!!! I love seafodd and those flavors just exploded in my mouth! Hands down the best Ceviche I have had so far at any restaurant.
To Drink, I had the "Divina Passion". Again, loved the flavors.
Overall, Limon made a wonderful first impression and one of my girlfriends already has a date for next weekend to dine there again.
Friends recommended Limon and various review sites have good ratings. I want to write a positive review, but I can't based on the food we ordered. My guess is the B-team was cooking on the night we dined at Limon. We ordered the Chicharron de Pollo, ceviche mixto and quinotto vegetales along with a bottle of wine. The ceviche was tough and acidic. The chicharron was dry and tough. The quinotta was extremely rich and over-sauced. Perhaps I've been spoiled by Le Mar. My hope is we just hit an off night. The meal was pretty lame, therefore I am not following my rule of "try a place 2 to 3 times before you make judgement".
Fantastic food, surprising tastes, in a nice space. Try the Chicha Morada, made by fermenting corn. The only complaint: the noise. The music is loud, and when the restaurant is crowed the conversational noise drowns out the music. Not good for people with hearing difficulties.
Great food and great service but the noise level was such that my husband and had to raise our voice and then we sometimes still were unable to hear each other. It really affected the enjoyment of the meal and I even asked for them to find a quieter spot in the middle of our meal. So if you go ask for a quiet spot to ensure a more pleasurable dining experience.
The small hot and cold plates were delicious and came out quick. The food is inventive and had great flavoring. The Larger Plate was awful. We waited around 15minutes for our big plate to come. The once attentive staff, completely ignore us, since they knew that we were waiting a while for our food. The bus boy even thought we were done and completely cleared everything, since we were waiting forever. We didn't mind because the ambience was nice and we had received great service from the start. Once, our Lomo Saltado came, we were truly disappointed. There was only 5 pieces of small cubed beef, rice, and fries for $17. Definitely, not worth the money or taste buds. Stick with the Small Plates selection and you'll have a great time.
I'd never been to Limon, though I've been to Limon Rotisserie many times. I was shocked that Limon didn't have the rotisserie chicken. If you want small plates in the Mission then this is a place to consider. I think it'd be a good place for a first date - have a glass of wine, a little snack, chat, and if you want to keep it at less than an hour it won't be awkward. Best sangria in SF - get a pitcher if the date is going well.
The food was excellent. Love the family style, so its easy to try many different dishes. One small plate if good for a 4-some to each the dish. The pitcher od sangria lasted the whole night & our waters were constantly filled. It was quite loud though, but overall a really nice dining expereince !
The menu has changed over the years to something that doesn't interest me. There were only 3 entries on the menu and alot of small plates. I had the sirloin steak over fries, and it was mostly fries, the steak was tough. We've been to Limon at least a dozen times in the past 10 years, and it was a disappointment this time. The small chicken plate wasn't very good either --- very dry and tasteless. And what is up with the sanghria? We had 2 pitchers between 4 of us for $50 and none of us even had a buzz --- watered down? And they were frequently topping off our glasses, so we went thru pitchers quickly. We finally moved the pitcher to the far end of the table away from the servers. Please go back to how you were back in the early 2000's.
Came here with my two friends, we all really enjoyed our dinner. Service was excellent, and the overall ambience was really nice. Not too loud, so you could a conversation. The food was really delicious, we especially love the beet salad. We all ordered steak as a main course - mine was a little tough, but overall the flavors were really good.
Definitely would recommend this place.
