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.

This place is fantastic. Scared to tell everyone how good it is for fear of not being able to get a rezzie in the future.

Busy evening, so very loud. Tables so close together hard to hear each other talk. Food was decent, but overpriced for what it was.

Great meal! One of the best we've had at Limones and they have all been good.

We just don't go here enough, partly because they are always busy and it can be difficult to get a reservation.

I had the mahi mahi, it was with those wonderful little grape tomatoes - yummy! My partner had the scallops - oh my gosh, they were truly amazing. Cooked perfectly with a really nice sear and so sweet and delicious.

GO!

It was a quiet evening because of the Super Bowl so we were lucky enough to score the table in the front window - cozy and romantic. We started with one of the amazing margaritas and the ceviche sampler - delicious. We then split an entree - the duck - and enjoyed a glass of wine from Limones well rounded wine list. What a flavor experience. Having left room for dessert, we decided upon the tres leche cake. Perfectly moist and yummy. The service was attentive without being overly solicitous. The entire evening was a delight. Limones is one of our favorite Asheville restaurants so we felt lucky to get a reservation at a late notice.

Asheville is somewhat central for my date and me. We have followed the advice of a friend who comes there often and raved about the margaritas (the Maya was our favorite). We also had the steak and the scallops; both were oustanding. Wonderful evening
