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.

Delicious food, lots of Covid precautions by staff. Enjoyed the salmon avocado appetizer, definitely large enough to share. Lamb enchiladas And brisket entrees were both good sized and yummy!

First experience eating at this restaurant. The food and service was excellent. Patrick was very helpful in guiding us in our decision as to what to order. His service was outstanding as was the food. Beautiful old restaurant located in a historic section of Ashville.

It’s hard to keep saying everything was amazing so I will only say it once. Our food was fresh flavorful and very well prepared. Our drinks were made to order perfectly as the list of tequilas is complete. The staff is mindful knowledgeable with attention to details on our table without being disturbing. Hands down I would return with more friends.

We were there on Friday night 10/16/20, party of 4 girls. Our server was not a nice woman. She was very curt with us and not friendly at all. She even argued that our chile relleno did not come with guacamole even if the menu stated otherwise. Chips and salsa were not on the menu so we did not expect to be charged for those too.

We ordered the ceviche trio and it did not disappoint! Our entrées were excellent as well. Portions were large enough to take home leftovers or to share. The service was great, and it was a very enjoyable evening. We would definitely return to Limones on future visits to Asheville.

One of the best restaurants in Asheville, which is saying something in this foodie town. Their lobster nachos are "a must", their margaritas substantial and terrific...all their food is top notch

Limone's is a lively neighborhood restaurant that serves creative and delicious food with a southwestern flair. While you will not find many traditional "Mexican" items, you will find fresh and flavorful choices to suit any appetite. I loved the ceviche! It had a cozy, "cool" vibe. It is very popular. Parking in the garage just up the street adjacent to the restaurant made access much easier than trying to find parking on the narrow, one way streets.

Limones - what can I say? You have the best lamb enchiladas, lobster nachos, and margaritas this side of the Mississipi (and probably the whole United States).

I enjoy Limones for the food and the speciality margaritas. ❤️The margarita caliente. Ask the server for the spicy pepper and salt rim! You won’t regret.

With all the guidelines in effect, the staff made it seem effortless. The ceviche and lobster nacho appetizers were fantastic and the drink menu was unique. We both got Scallops for dinner which was top notch also. We really enjoyed our evening here.

Amazing place. Very friendly service. The Ceviche sample was delicious and the Lobster Nachos was fantastic. Limones is a wonderful restaurant and you feel very safe and comfortable inside because they have a very good layout to maintain social distance. 10/10.

The appetizer Poblano cheese stuffed pepper was superb. So many unique flavors and very light. The pomegranate margarita was wonderful! Then my husband had the Carne Asada dish- he said was so flavorful and really tender. I chose the Seared Scallops which Did not disappoint. They were tender sweet and complimented well with the creamed cauliflower and mushrooms! Altogether great dining experience and our bartender who also served us at the bar was so personable and nice! Can’t wait to go back there! 5 stars from us!

I had the shrimp and octopus ceviche - it was superb. Not too vinegar-y. The seafood was perfectly macerated and the sauce/marinade had just the right amount of tartness. First ceviche I’ve had in a long time that I liked.

I had the brisket tacos. They were superb also. The brisket had been long-braised in spices, citrus and stock for hours to get fork tender. Served topped with diced onions and guacamole. I will definitely order these again.

My wife had the lobster nachos. They were fine. Nothing to write home about.

Their standard Marguerita is on the lighter side of normal, but it’s nicely balanced.
