My husband and I love the food here - we always order in because it is healthy and fresh and the man on the phone is always super nice too. We love the meat dumplings with yogurt. They are spectacular. The bread is covered in fragrant nigella seeds and that is essential - otherwise it would be very plain and boring. The bread is fragrant from the seeds and is nice drizzled with olive oil. I highly recommend ordering from Limon.

I've ordered delivery from here before, but this was my first time sitting down at the restaurant. It's a very small joint6-7 tables, sits maybe 20 people, no waiting roomso be sure to call ahead and check if there's an open table. I had the lamb kebob and she had the chicken kebob, both were served with zucchini and yellow squash. We both loved our dishes. The meat in both cases was perfectly cooked: tender and juicy. Both of us opted out of the turkish rice that comes with it (she's watching the carbs and I can't eat butter). But their pita bread is warm, soft and crusty. If I go back, I'd probably order hummos to accompany the bread. I've been told it's stellar here. Also, the service was great: our waiter was attentive and knowledgable, and our water glasses were always full.

I discovered this place about a month ago- the food is delicious, all of the dips are great (my favorites are the hummus and the yogurt dip). For entrees, all of the grilled meats are really good, very tender and flavorful. And the best part is that it's BYO!!! The owner is very nice and helpful too!

after reading all the raves i was excited to try this place. i ordered the halibut. the delivery was very prompt, but the fish looked so unappetizing. it was dry, overcooked, way too salty, and with a not-so-fresh smell. the grilled zuchini & squash were sweet but bland. the mashed potato was bland too; i think it came out of a box, not freshly made. very disappointed; maybe dining in is a different experience? i will give this place another try; maybe this was just an off night for them. it was one of the worst takeout experiences for me, ever.

Delicious, traditional Turkish food. Small place with seating for around 18 people (so not recommended for groups larger than 4) and is romantic. BYOB. Besides the food, the best part is the wait staff- they are sweet, courteous and attentive. - Noga

I just recently stumbled across Limon, and was extremely pleased with the food, service & atmosphere. Only 5 cozy tables. Very friendly place, easy to befriend your fellow diners (and pass plates!). Melt-in-your-mouth lamb, and very delicious halibut. Oh, and try the grape leaves & hummous. Great warm crusty bread, unlimited. And BYOB.....You won't want to leave!!

my wife and i came here based on the reviews of menupages and were still impressed. the food was absolutely wonderful and the tiny place had a great relaxing and "aahhhhhh" feeling about it. we shared the 3 sampler appetizer of stuffed grape leaves, cacik, and hummus. that platter was truly a delight. it was large, but such a shame when we finished it. my wife had the halibut and i had the tandir. both dishes were amazingly flavored and melt in your mouth soft. i didn't need the steak knife for the tandir (roasted lamb), the fork was enough to get bite sized pieces. the place is still BYOB, so grab your favorite bottle and be prepared to have a new favorite place.
