Mexican
Around the corner from the Fine Arts Theater in downtown Asheville, Limones Restaurant provides an inspirational mix of Mexican and Californian cuisine along with inventive bar selections served by a warm, professional staff. Long before working and training under some of San Francisco’s most talented chefs, Hugo Ramirez was raised on the intense and varied flavors native to his hometown of Mexico City. In fact, he still calls on his mother for the secrets of traditional Mexican dishes, which he reinvents in innovative and surprising ways. At Limones, Hugo’s love of Mexican food is combined with his training in french-influenced California cuisine.

    Second visit. Not as great as first. Was more crowded, waited for a while after being seated to order, louder. Food still very good. Sat at a table between 2 others in a line of tables with a shared long booth type seat along the wall. Felt like sitting &/or standing to get out was an imposition to tables beside us.

    Corey, our server was a delight and was very knowledgeable and caring about our evening and our choices for all food and cocktails. The food was outstanding and the entire dinner was one our favorites while in Asheville, NC!! Highly recommend Limones and Corey as a server.

    Our server was subpar, not paying much attention to our table. However, the food was amazing (esp the lobster nachos), and the margaritas never disappoint.

    Best Mexican influenced food I’ve had anywhere. Had the Chile Relleno, my favorite Mexican dish. So fresh and delicious. Lobster Nachos were out of this world. Fun margaritas and nice wine/beer list. Highly recommended.

    Dined while in town for weekend trip. Easy walk from nearly any downtown hotel. Everything from service to food to drinks was outstanding. Highly recommend the Chile Relleno (off the charts good). Margaritas made with fresh ingredients/juices and takes them over the top. Service was excellent. Will dine here again!

    The first thing we noticed when we walked in was the wall -- a thing of beauty -- and if you mention it to the hostess, she will tell you the story of the wall. We were seated at a cozy table for two in a window. The decor and ambience of the place are really special, creative, and full of warmth. The traditional margarita was perfect, the ceviches were all delicious, the chile rellenos, nachos, and squash and lentil entree were all fabulous. Also, the trés leches cake with peaches and pecans was a delight. Highly recommend this restaurant!!

    Went here for our dating anniversary because it's our favorite restaurant. Our server, Dovid (spelled phonetically and likely inaccurately), is a treasure of a human being. He did everything to ensure that we had a special evening. The food and drinks, as always over the near-decade we've been coming to Limones, were phenomenal. It's no small thing, a dinner that is beautiful in every way. I'm so grateful.

    We were able to enjoy conversation with a table of four which is rare anymore. The service was excellent and the food superb. I would say it's a little over-pricey; perhaps five to 10 dollars per plate, but we didn't complain!

    Great food as always! Didn’t love the table next to the kitchen! Great waiter! We were among the last to leave the hot chocolate that came with the churros was barely warm & the whipped cream was all melted an unappetizing presentation. But it was late on NYE so we didn’t ask for another. We’ll be back!
