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.

    Enjoyed our meal very much. Lobster Nachos were excellent. Ceviche sampler was also delicious. Very fresh and just enough lime and zest to make the fish stand out. The desserts were "to die for!" We had the bread pudding and tres leches cake. Both excellent.

    So good!!! Make reservations early! We booked ours three weeks in advance and best time left was 5:30 pm. Food, drinks and service were great. Our fave was the lobster nachos, which we had for an appetizer; followed by short rib ramen and roasted mushroom enchiladas. Finished with tres leches and Mexican spiked coffee (so good)! Can't wait to return next time we're in Asheville.

    Always a great place to drink and eat especially if you love tequila drinks. Was a bit disappointed they took the street corn off the menu😢Service was great but were slow out of the gate. Everything else made up for the slow welcome. Bring Back the corn!😊 Pricey too.

    We were thrilled! Food was amazing, so delicious and flavorful. Ambiance was simple yet cozy and interesting. Service was fantastic, timely, friendly. We ordered the blood orange margarita, a Manhattan and a old fashioned, all perfect. Ceviche sampler, delicious, favorite was the verde with tuna. Entrees we’re the scallops and tenderloin. We ate every bite. Desert was the flourless chocolate torte, also yummy. Will go again.

    Overall a terrific experience. First time here, highly recommended by locals. Food was outstanding. We had the cerviche of the day, market salad, and the ossobuco was out of this world. Server was lovely, service a bit slow, but not her fault, she had a few large tables. We will definitely keep coming!

    Really pleasant dinner here, with excellent drinks, appetizer, mains, and after dinner cordials. The specialty drinks are creative, particularly with tequilas, and they have a full bar. We had a creative trio of ceviches. The mains are excellent, with interesting mixes of flavors. We did not have dessert, but rather had 20 year tawny ports, where the bar knew when they opened the port - something I find refreshing to see here in the USA. Best of all: we were never rushed by staff. We enjoyed our meal for a full 2 hours, that flew by quickly. Not a cheap dinner, but well worth the investment if you value a good meal.
