Overall a great place to go. Grilled octopus and ceviche were outstanding. Empanadas were good but not as good as I remembered from another location. Seemed slightly overcooked or like they waited too long to be brought out.
This is a casual food restaurant in terms of food and vibe, but priced at a relatively upscale level. Items we tried: Ceviche (catch of the day) had too-large pieces in too-salty sauce, Empanadas (decent, but oily), Mac-n-cheese (ok), Rotisserie chicken (undistinctive) and Lomo Saltadao (again, too-salty). Drinks were better, at least the pisco sours. Service was very spotty. Even though it was not a busy night, our server would disappear for long periods, forgot to bring out the sauces with the chicken, etc. Overall, unimpressive place. Not likely to return.
Host wasn’t too friendly but other staff provided great service
Two words LOUD & Chaotic. I don’t know how many times the men serving water and clearing tables bumped into my chair.
The noise level was so loud I couldn’t hear my friend across the table talking.
I’m glad I wore a sleeveless top as it was very hot and smoky inside.
Seats and tables are packed in tight.
Small portions $18.95 for a small ceviche. Yes it was tasty and very spicy.
Our waitress was friendly as were the front desk.
Probably better to sit outside under the heated lamps .
Always delicious and amazing service
Service is excellent as is the food, only negative is noise volume
First time to this Burlingame location. Enjoyed their original SF location from years ago. Ordered half chicken with 2 sides. Chicken is quite good, not dried although a tad soft and on the smallish side given the price. The 2 sides were generous enough. Didn't order their alcoholic drinks as this was lunch. Place smells very nice but the smell clings to the clothes and hair after.
Food was really good, just got very noisy and the service was really slow. Waited at least 10 minutes before a server even came over then he took drink orders and waited forever for him to come and take our order.
Food was good, but the noise level was unbearable. The music was way too LOUD, the tables were way too CLOSE - everyone was packed in there! S we chose to sit under heat lamps on the sidewalk where we could at least hear each other. If you actually want to go out to dinner with friends to talk to each other, visit, and engage in conversation, go elsewhere! But if you love the noise and don't mind shouting to your table mate, the food is tasty!
Very ordinary dining experience. Everything just average - no wow factor for any aspect.
First time eating here for a celebration lunch, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised! Excellent Peruvian cuisine, the menu was amazing with a lot of authentic and tantalizing options. The Ceviche Trio is an excellent starter for a group, and I highly recommend it. In terms of the main courses, I had the Seafood Paella and was not disappointed. The Surf and Turf Saltado also was a delicious dish and excellent choice. In terms of drinks, I had the Chicha Morada Sour, which was a great and authentic cocktail. Overall my group was all satisfied with their dishes and appetizers, and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone! I will be back! Gracias Limon!
Very loud room but very good food and superb amarillo sauce!
Probably should get the chicken and seviches. I had a surf and turf stir fry with grass fed filet and shrimp. Meat and fish quality are very good and this place is not expensive. But I had asked to waiter to tell the chefs to make mine less salty (use less soy sauce), but they did not. Mine was still very salty. It was still good and I ate it because I was hungry. Also it took a while for our waiter to come around. It was however quite busy on a Friday evening
This was my 2nd visit and food was just as amazing as the first visit. Excellent staff, checked on our table very often during out meal.
You must try the empanadas!
Thank you for dining with us! We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again soon!
We (3 of us) shared Tuna Tartar and half chicken with sides. Everything was tasty and there was plenty of food. We were surprised at how low the bill was. It included a wine and a really yummy pisco sour!
Thank you for dining with us! We're thrilled to see you enjoyed your meal and experience with us! We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again soon!
Excellent food, fast and friendly service. The space is big and the noise level is HIGH. We were there on a Friday night and it was packed, with people waiting outside for tables. Speaking of which, there are outdoor tables out front, with good sized heaters (it gets cool and windy in Burlingame) - would be a lovely place to sit outside on a fine night, and probably less noisy. The food was terrific, my faves were the Polpo (octopus) and the dry fried green beans. Everything came out in a flash and out server could NOT have been nicer! Really a terrific place.
Thank you for dining with us and for sharing your dining experience with us!! We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again soon!
The place was packed and very noisy. The service was very good. I had vegetable empanadas and Yuma Fries. The empanadas were very tasty because they were dip fried. I would have liked them baked.
My husband and my grandson had the Pollo a la Brasa and CevIche and liked both.
Thank you for dining with us!
Food, service and general ambiance was fabulous. Noise level was crushing, which did affect our ability to socialize.
Thank you for dining with us!
If you want to party with friends, love high energy and lots of noise, this is the place to go. If you want to have a conversation with someone, don't bother. The food was a mix - my chicken was overdone, but my friends seafood dish was excellent. The noise level inside was like New Year's Eve, at midnight. Outside was better, except when the trains blew by, whistles blowing, or someone drove by attempting to impress everyone with the roar of a car or motorcycle motor. It's a fun place, with long tables making everyone like family. People were obviously having a great time. Just too loud for me.
Lynette, Thank you for dining with us and for sharing this important feedback with us. We are always looking for ways to improve our customer service and your dining experience with us.
The girl in the front was very rude. We missed the appointment time., so she said we will not earn points even though the restaurant was almost empty. The place needs a better extractor in the kitchen as the whole place smells like food and it gets impregnated on your clothing. The food we ordered was kinda cold. It seems it had been already cooked as it came very quickly. Ceviche was good even though they put a lot of corn kettles to fill up the little cup. Tres leches was dry and too sweet.
Thank you for dining with us and for bringing this to our attention. I'll be sure to share this feedback directly with our management team at our Burlingame location.
We ordered a half chicken that came with 2 sides. a seafood rice dish, and a fried seafood dish! All the dishes were delicious! Servers were friendly and service was prompt! We will definitely go back!
Iris, Thank you for dining with us and for taking the time to share your experience with us! We look forward to serving you again soon!
A favorite local place for consistently good food and a fun atmosphere.
Good food but it can be quite salty depending on the dish. Service is fast, but felt rushed. I know they like to move the tables, felt like we were going to a fire...
Loud noisy vibrant fun spot. Food was heavy on the fried side, meat specialties of the house were poorer cuts and a bit chewy.
A nice casual restaurant with good food and excellent service.
Not authentic Peruvian crusine anymore. Who put shredded cheese on aroz de marisco? The month was attacked by processed cheese and not a bit of seafood.
Not enough rotisserie items on the menu. I only saw 3 chicken options for rotisserie. Surprised by so many dishes with soy sauce in a Peruvian dishes. I ordered the rotisserie chicken and it was good. Dish cane with 2 sides. Good value for my meal. Lively atmosphere but very loud noise level. Had to shout to hear my table mates.
My server was not really around. I forgot what he even looked like. Other servers were great! Too bad I didn't catch his name. Food was good and the sangria is amazing!
Great location, the food came out quickly. Drinks were tasty.
Love the Pisco sours there so no complaint there… The energy at the place is fabulous and sitting at the bar was fun for a change.
Ordered a quarter chicken and unfortunately, got a leg and thigh that look like it was from a Cornish game hen… A little dry, so was disappointed!
My rice was under cooked but they gave me a new plate. Other then that the food was good.
The wait is not bad. Food was delicious
The service is not so well. The guy who help us is lack of customer service skills.
Some how they ran out of dark meat chicken...so sad !
Good food, good atmosphere, good value
Food has consistently been good on every visit to Limon. Recommend this place if you like rotisserie chicken and/or Ceviche.
Great tasting food and drinks. Would definitely recommend. If you don’t like noisy establishment this is not the place for you. But is worth the wait and noise.
Bad food, bad service.
Food good. Service harried, and the noise level has now become impossible to hold a conversation. Outside tables are better. Been three times. Not going back.
