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’ve been going to this restaurant for about 10 years and it has been consistently excellent every time we go. Today was no exception with some items that have been on the menu in the past and some new, all well crafted and delicious.

Ceviche and scallops were great. Ginger mint margaritas wwe delicious, as was the tres leches cake we had for dessert. Menu wasn’t as Mexican as I had hoped but was still good

Excellent food and excellent service. The sea bass was exquisite. Lobster nachos out of this world.

We reserved a table at Limones for our anniversary. When we arrived, our table, plus glasses of complimentary champagne, was waiting for us. Drinks, appetizers (seviche sampler - awesome!), and entrees were delicious. Service was lovely. Highly recommend.

Never Disappoints! Consistently Exceptional.
I hope this restaurant never gives me a reason to warrant anything but the highest level of ratings. The service is always better than any other restaurant wait staff in the area. Please note, this is the ONLY restaurant in the Asheville area that receives this rating from me. We tried a couple of different selections from the menu, the tenderloin which proved to be tasty and well executed and the other entree was the seared sea scallops - more generous serving than other high end restaurants in the downtown area. I was pleasantly surprised but should not have been considering this restaurant never serves skimpy portions. The layer of flavors and depth of spices is a trademark and Limones sets a high bar. My side favorites are the margaritas! Won't order them anywhere else because its too much of a let down. And this time I decided to try a dessert - the Churros with hot chocolate was totally binge worthy! If you can get a reservation - just go.

Ceviche was the best we’ve ever had for our appetizer. In addition, the drinks and entrees were great. This is one of the best places in Asheville. We drove 3 hours to have dinner here and it did not disappoint.
