Family Owned Peruvian Restaurant Executive chef, Martín Castillo, and his brothers, Antonio and Eduardo, grew up around a busy kitchen. Their mother, Luz, was well known in her neighborhood for her delicious cooking: her son's friends would always ask her to make their families a dish on special occasions. By the 1990's the Castillo brothers had left Perú and found themselves in the U.S. They continued their ritual of cooking home-style Peruvian dishes out of their apartment for family, friends and, soon enough, friends of friends. It was then that they knew there was something worth sharing. By 2002, the Castillo's first restaurant, "Limón" opened its doors on 17th Street in the Mission District of San Francisco. The goal was simple: introduce the dynamic flavors of Peruvian cuisine to the renowned San Francisco food scene, in which it was seemingly missing. With word of mouth the restaurant quickly gained recognition from top restaurant critics and national publications. Most important to the Castillo brothers was to create an atmosphere reminiscent of life in Perú: a place where locals could gather over shared plates and celebrate life's occasions with memorable food & drink. Today, the Castillo family continues to own & operate multiple Limon Rotisserie locations in the Bay Area & beyond.

    our night started out perfect, greeted by our favorite server Daniel. He has become a bit more than a server, somewhat of a friend. Going out to eat is so much more than food, it is also social. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Our drink orders were taken and we are ordered when Daniel brought our drinks back. We were quickly served our hot appetizers of Veggie Empanadas. After we finished our dinners were brought out, perfect timing, no rushed, but, not having to wait either. Food is so good and service excellent

    While the amazing Instagram photos of people’s food initially worries me that it would be to fancy for my kids, I was so happy to find this to be upscale casual that was welcoming to all palates. The chicken was flavorful and moist and the sides were delicious. I look forward to going back!

    We went here on Valentines day.. we were four people in total. The food was great, service was excellent! The fact that it was valentines day, we were expecting already that it will take them sometime to serve the food but we were wrong, they serve our orders in a timely manner! I highly recommend this place.

    Maybe, it was way too loud and the tables are very close together.
