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.

    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.

    Limones is a great restaurant, especially if you enjoy tapas-type food. We found their Por La Mesa section of the menu (with the tapas or appetizers) to be great. Ceviche of all sorts is available. Our waiter was also very good -- attentive to us, and when we told him we were uncertain about ordering two entres, he suggested that we go ahead with our appetizers and then decide what to do about the main course. That seems like a small thing, but I've been to a number of restaurants that would not have done that. He went out of his way to accommodate two older diners who had never been there before. I recommend Limones.

    The food was very good. Our server was fine but didn't seem too anxious to accommodate special dietary requests. She eventually helped the person who had specific dietary restrictions and we had a very nice meal.
