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.

Visited on a Sunday night, in late Jan. We were seated promptly and the server arrived with menus and descriptions of the seasonal menu. We ordered drinks which arrived quickly, and we tried the Cervichie Sampler. All three samples of the citrus cured fish were excellent. I recommend the Blood Orange Margarita. There were many great sounding entrees. I ordered Scallops, two of our group had Filet and one Pork Chop. We all agreed our food was great. The only issue— one filet was ordered medium well. It arrived medium rare. We sent it back but it still came back too rare. BUT the manager personally came to check on us and didn’t charge for the filet. I really enjoy this place and love to bring out of town guests to experience it. Even our friend who had trouble with his steak was well pleased overall with our evening at Limones.

We started with our usual the fabulous cerviche sampler. Always great. My wife had the shrimp meatballs which were good, the fingerling potato’s that accompanied it were perfectly done. I had the boullaibase, excellent broth, scallops exactly done, shrimp a bit tough but shrimp is just like that especially in a combo dish. Don’t miss the mojitos, best ever.

Excellent meals. Creative margaritas. Good dining experience for business to special occasion. When crowded (which it almost always is) restaurant is quite loud. Overall, a consistently excellent meal.
