    I went back to Lima after a while (may be a year) and found it remodeled, the same great music and the same great atmosphere. They are selective with the folks the let in here. Good food.

    Great space. Food is good and reasonably priced. Don't let Daniel serve you unless you're buying drinks. Those are the only patrons he seemed to care about

    Go early and try the restaurant! Very classy, fine dinning. Large portions, at reasonable price! Ceviches are amazing! Cuban chicken, churrasco steak and sea bass are always favorites!

    Loved this place. Creepers get too intense around 2. Make sure to check out the upstairs, its less crowded and plays songs you recognize.

    Your hair will be a hot mess if you stand in front the of cold air blasts on the dance floor half the evening. I wish I didn't speak from experience, haha.

    Thursday nights at Lima are Glow nights, and the intimate setting of the club allows djs like Laidback Luke, Avicii, and John Dahlback to be literally five feet in front of you.

    Service sucks, esp brunch...if you want a real mimosa with champagne in there, go to another spot, if you want hot food, bring your own microwave..We had to wait 40 min jus for our food to be cold

    The service was horrible! Plus added 20% gratuity. They will never get my money again. 1 1/2 for food. Salads and food came together. Extra items on the bill. Adalgisa was in over her head.
