For traditional, quality Peruvian cuisine, look no further than Limon Rotisserie on Valencia Street in the heart of San Francisco. Executive Chef Martin Castillo, along with his brothers Antonio and Eduardo, have created an innovative menu that is served in an inviting, colorful atmosphere. Limon Rotisserie's open dining room is ideal for larger parties. Latin-style music adds to the ambiance.
Limon Rotisserie's prix fixe menu takes the hassle out of event planning. Each prix fixe option includes cold plates, hot plates and a main course. The dinner menu features favorites like the seco de Costillas, which is prepared with braised beef short ribs and is served with potatoes, carrots, English peas and rice. Another Limon Rotisserie hit is the selection of empanadas, which include steak, chicken, veggie and cheese options.
The food was amazing, and so were the drinks and service. Prices were affordable. Must try the ceviche.
Everything we ordered was salty. It’s also very loud inside to have any kind of conversation. Staff wasn’t attentive. We waited a long time for someone to come by for our needs. Wouldn’t come back again
Noise level was way to high, has a hard time to chat with friend.
The food is tasty - Pescado a la Macho (good mix of seafood, a bit salty but great flavor), Lomo Saltado (beef was burnt but flavor still good), green beans (crisp and seasoned well) and the Bread Pudding for dessert (was a bit dry, wouldn't recommend it). Service was good and attentive. The unfortunate downside is the volume in the restaurant which is pretty unbearable and makes conversation impossible. I'm not sure what they could do about it since it has high ceilings and is packed with people and tables. My friend really enjoyed her Traditional Chilcanos drink that she had two and I had the sangria which was ok. I will probably not be back anytime soon but will recommend this place for folks to go eat, not catch up!
Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Excellent!
Always amazing, one of my favorite places in the whole city.
Birthday dinner! Food and service was fine but it was so so loud it was painful:(
Excellent food and service, but very noisy. The chicken and seviche were both outstanding-- excellent balance of spices.
We were seated quickly, service was great & food was amazing. Just a little noisy!
Food was good and so was the service. The screaming children hordes of children were not great.
Love Limon. Staff is friendly and professional, food very good and value outstanding. I work nearby and for quality, ambiance, service and price there is no better option in the Mission.
We loved food and service noise level was so high we could not have a conversation
Everything was great just a bit too noisy.
I have been obsessed with Peruvian food for years, and I can't believe it was my first time here. Shrimp and Octopus ceviche was excellent, Jalea and Lomo Saltado also very good (steak was cooked to a beautiful medium rare). Door was crowded with people waiting, but with the reservation, we were seated right away. Will definitely be back!
The food is always on point!!
Limon Rotisseries has delicious roasted chicken with peruvian spices, nice side dishes, good ceviche and yummy pisco sours.
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.
Loved everything of IT! Our server Mya was awesome! Loved her!
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.
Noisiest place I have Ever eaten! We had to scream at each other across the table to be heard.
Never going back. My ears were ringing after we left
It is great but a bit noisy. I really could not hear my friend at the end of a six person table. We sat in the top level. Everything else was great.
So great! Amazing service; reservationist got us in super quickly despite an error with their system. Great sangria.
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.
The restaurant was welcoming, service was polite, food was okay.
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.
Had a visitor from Nw York, and promised him a great meal, and very attractive prices. Expectations exceeded. I will be back with more visitors. Thanks!
Great Food! Great Service!
The food was amazing! Thank god we had a reservation because the place was very busy. I would recommend this place however if you want a quiet place, then do not go here. It’s very noisy.
The food is always good but the service was really bad this time, sorry I have to say this but it is what it is.
Always amazing food (ceviche mixto and pollo empanadas to start, lomo saltado, chicharon de pollo for dinner and badito for dessert!) and the atmosphere is energetic!
The food was excellent in fact everything about the place was great but the noise level completely unbearable
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!
Killer spot for their signature chicken, ceviche, empanadas, and Peruvian Pisco drinks!!
First time there, will go back again!
Amazing food but don’t plan on a deep conversation, as it will be inaudible due to the noise level. Still, ceviche trio and rotisserie chicken are worth it!!
Fantastic friendly casual service offering Peruvian comfort food in a lively place.
The food is good and the service fine; the atmosphere is pretty basic and we might not go again. It was convenient to the mission delores where we attended a concert, so it was convenient.
I arrived very early with my friends, and appreciated that I still was seated.
Octopus was amazing 🔥
The host was extremely rude, we were having a Christmas friends meal and were all in good spirits. Unfortunately the host treated the group like children and requested that we stop laughing. He did not bring the drinks until the main course came out.
Great experience! Food was amazing! Queso empanadas are killer, had two orders. haha
