Tiny place, but great food and attentive, amiable service. Also BYOB which is nice--they have negotiated a 10% discount with the wine store across the street, so you don't have to remember to bring your own bottle from across town. Delicious food at reasonable prices. The dining room is a bit cramped but fewer tables means it's not as noisey as most crowded NY restaurants. Looking forward to going back!

My husband and I hosted a celebratory dinner here one week ago and we are still reeling from our wonderful and memorable experience! It was my third time there and my husband's second time and we can't think of a better place to have chosen for an amazing dinner party. We had a very intimate party for 12 of our closest friends and everyone is still raving about the night from the food to the service to the atmosphere. The food is extremely fresh and the flavors are extraordinary...the chef received enthusiastic applause! The portion sizes are so generous that our guests could hardly believe that there was more to enjoy after the appetizers. However, they found the room to savor the entrees and desserts that followed and everything received high praise. The server/owner and company were very attentive and made us feel more than taken care of and appreciated...not a single step or detail was missed...and I am a harsh critic after years in the restaurant industry myself. We brought in our own wine which was poured graciously making an already amazing value even more economical. This is definitely one of our favorite restaurants and I know my husband and I will be back as will our friends!

I finally checked this small restaurant by taking my parents there last weekend. As a fan of Turkish food I find it difficult to locate a good restaurant in my area to go to and this was a treat. The dolma was fresh and delicious, the salmon was amazingly tender and the lamb kebab was superb. The atmosphere was really nice and relaxing and the waiter was friendly and nice and suggested a few starters I have never heard of. It was really packed on the weekend so I suggest going there during the week and have an intimate dinner there. I can't wait for them to get their liquor license so I can pair up my Turkish wine with appetizers and entrees. Highly recommended!

I went to Limon based on the reviews read here. The food was good. It wasn't the best I ever had, but my girlfriend and I enjoyed it. The waitor seemed very lost the entire time. He had to search for menus, later came back to re-check on the items we ordered (4 total). A request for napkins yilded an extra cloth one. We ordered hummus, lamb chops which were ok. Overall I would rate it 3.5-4, definitely not a perfect 5. Our meal was $50 with a $6 tip. We drank mineral water. They seat 10-15 people from what I noticed.

6 of us ate here last night -- based on other reviewers comments. We were all thrilled by the food, and the honest approach taken by the waiter (?perhaps owner??). Heavenly lamb slices, and even better lamp chops. The Turkish yogurt is a not-to-be-missed appetizer. Sensational. We'll all go back for sure. Its a very small restaurant, so be sure to make a reservation.

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner last week after a coworker recommended it and we both couldn't stop talking about how good the food was! Everything from the zucchini pancakes and hummus to the swordfish skewers and manti were delish and cooked to perfection. It's probably the best Turkish food I've had outside of Turkey and the prices were very reasonable. The place has a very intimate feel about it (maybe seats only 20 people?) and I'm looking forward to going back soon.

I attempted to order from 101 based on the high praise given by menupages reviewers, only to find out that 101 has changed its name (and ownership) to Limon. I decided to give Limon a shot, figuring they'd be trying to fill the big shoes of their predecessor restaurant. And fill the shoes they did. The "small salad" was quite large and fresh. The adana wrap was delicious. Delivery took about 30 min, which is a bit long, but it was Friday night at prime time and the food was worth the wait.
