Terrific fresh flavors! Salads and sauces were outstanding! Although chicken is a specialty, the ceviche was super. Service was excellent.

I have been to the other two Limon locations and feel like this location got the shaft out of the two. This is a neighborhood that definitely needs good eateries and it's unfortunate that this location wasn't given the same attention as the other two. The restaurant was out of a few menu options when I visited, and does not offer the pisco drinks. The service however was great. The servers were very attentive and super friendly. I would go back just for them.

First off, this place is in the hood! Parking down the side alley was sketch at best plus the parking area for Limon was closed off so we had to improvise. Meaning we had to park illegally.

Food was OK. Nothing remarkable. Nothing offensive either. Gonna try their other locations to compare.

Service was also unremarkable. Kind of felt like I was being served by the busboy.

Overall a average experience. Not one I feel the need to repeat.

Spices and sauces make this the kind of food most of us could never duplicate at home. The sangria has a great balance of fruitiness and tartness. Also a good value.

Whenever My husband and I hear that a friend has not yet tried Limon, we make a point of taking them. We took our friend here last Saturday for his birthday and we are happy we did.
The kitchen was firing on all cylinders that night, and everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. Our friend loved the sangria, saying it was the best he's had in awhile. The rotisserie chicken was perfect, juicy and well seasoned, the ceviche was great, the short ribs melted in one's mouth, the mac and cheese was creamy with just the right amount of truffle flavor, not overdone, and all the sides were fresh and flavorful.
Our server was very friendly and efficient and the ambiance was relaxing. A nice place to kick back with good friends and good food.

The ambiance was amazing, very clean and simply decorated place. The sangria was good, not too strong which is how I like it. My friend order a steak dish and it was perfectly cooked and the truffle mac and cheese is delicious. But I ordered a chicken with pasta and pesto and I found it a bit dry which is why I gave the food 4 stars. Other than that it was a really delicious meal. Totally coming back here for the tapas.

We had a reservation and were seated right away, only to wait almost twenty minutes before someone came to talk with us, even longer for the food, and they never came back to check on us, fill our drinks,etc. Previous visits to this restaurant have been exemplary, the food is really divine and the staff is always friendly, which is why were were surprised. In this visit, there seemed to be only one waiter for the whole place, who was rushed off his feet poor guy. It appeared the bartender tried to help him as much as possible, they kept it going as best they could and were cheerful, but we were surprised at the low staff, especially on a Saturday night?

The food quality is consistent with the other Limon locations. The only downside is they do not offer the full menu as the others. During our visit the following items were not available:

Tartara de Tuna
Arroz con Mariscos

It won't stop us however, from visiting this location when the other spots are fully booked.

MOTHER'S DAY. I was so happy to be able to secure a reservation for six here as I have been here before and truly enjoyed our dining experience. But upon arrival, and out of all days (Mother's Day), the restaurant was closed! Why would OpenTable allow me to make a reservation when the place isn't even open on that day? Please adjust this feature as it is an inconvenience to your users who depend on your service to check hours of operations for them. This totally ruined my very first Mother's Day as a new Mommy:(

My husband and I had a great time eating here. This is by far the cleanest Limon we've been to and we've been to all of the locations in the city. Food was great and everything was perfect. My only complaint was that the chimichurri sauce wasn't the same as the other location's. It had no flavor and just tasted like herbs This was really disappointing since I like to drown most of my food in this sauce. However, because the rotisserie chicken is seasoned so well, I still enjoyed my meal. I would definitely come here again if they can get the chimichurri right.

We were a party of 7. We went there because the delicious peruvian food.. but they said that they charge everything on weekends. "Lomo Saltado" is a traditional plate and of course comes with rice, but they charged it separetly. My mom ordered "Pollo a la Brasa" and they charged for the "aji" (spicy souce) and for every sauce they gave us. Plus.. they gave us extra plates that we did not ask and of course.. they charged for that.
At the end.. when we took the food to go... they did not include the sauces and rice that we already paid.
As soon we finished the food and paid... the waitress came and said that they needed the table and told us to go out. That was not polite at all.
We are not going to come back again.

We've dined at Limon about 15-20 times now. Guess that may express how we feel about this restaurant, WE LOVE IT!

Every visit we've made, the waiter/waitress have always been very helpful and polite. We have yet to walk out of this restaurant disappointed. Limon is the restaurant to go to for the best peruvian food in town! Yes, this is where you will find the best chicken, ceviche, and more!

You can order anything here without going wrong. My regular staples include ceviche, empanada, chicharron de pollo (basically their version of Korean fried chicken), and the sweet potato fries. Note, though, it's hard to find vegetable-focused plate on the menu; meals at Limon are heavy on the meat and seafood.

We brought a baby and the staff was nice and accommodating.

We were always looking for a great restaurant neat the South San Francisco area where we often stay the night before a plane. Limon is 5 miles from the hotels at Oyster Point. The food is delicious, fresh, flavorful and portions are generous. The ceviches are fantastic as is the rotisserie chicken and the paella. I thought the prices were very reasonable. Parking is easy as they have their own parking lot .

I will definitely return.

The food is flavorful and presentation is done well. However, the meat we had was not very fresh. The chicken was severely overcooked so it was tough and dry. The shrimp was verging on bland and the beef was also a bit tough.

I was sooooo happy when Limon opened their store on 3rd Street - 5 minutes from my house. Food is consistently good - as good as their other stores; this one is much quieter, so very good for dinner conversations. They've recently limited their hours to the weekends only.

My husband and I took a friend here for a birthday dinner, and everything was cooked to perfection and the service was great. The chicken was perfectly seasoned and succulent and all of the small plates and sides were delicious. My favorite truffle mac and cheese has never disappointed, and was smooth and creamy with just enough truffle oil to not be overpowering.
The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, the staff is always attentive, and the kitchen is consistently competent with the quality of the food.

I discovered Limon when searching for restaurants near Candlestick Park, as my friends and I were attending the concert and wanted somewhere close to eat. Although our reservation time was quite early for dinner (315pm), it was Friday and we treated it more like late lunch, happy hour and early dinner all wrapped up into one. The food was delicious! We had the tuna tartare, shrimp and fish ceviche, papas fritas, rotisserie chicken with trio of sauces and truffle Mac and cheese. All the flavors were well balanced and very tasty...portions were perfect. The staff was nice and attentive, the space bright and comfortable. Overall great time!

After an afternoon hike with the dog at Ft. Funsten we checked out OT for a new restaurant close by. The reviews seemed good and there were other locations as well. We were hesitant given the other reviews citing it was in the ghetto. Well it was far from a bad area for sure-well gentrified- it was pleasant. The food was excellent. Crisp, not greasy empanadas with sauce; luscious ceviche-quite a healthy portion of fresh shrimp and fish; rotisserie chicken was so moist and tender!!!! the sauce trio was a treat lovely short rib small plate with perfectly cooked veg could have been a meal. The Sangria and signature sake cocktail were tasty and well balanced. would highly recommend this spot!!
