Looking for Recommendations in the Mission Tonight

Looking for some place in the Mission for dinner tonight. Considered Limon, but seeing some mixed reviews. There are 4 of us and we want to eat early, so that should make it easier to get in somewhere at the last minute.

Would prefer something moderately priced--went to Bar Bambino for the first time not long ago. Liked the atmosphere. Thought the food was good, not great. Thought overall it was expensive for what you got overall in terms of food, service, etc. All I could say when I left was we could have eaten at Chez Panisse Cafe (much better and with more dishes) for less.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Go to Limon. One of the best meals I've had this year.

    It's expensive, and portions aren't huge, but you're paying for top-notch quality ingredients and great technique.

        I agree with Vulber...I went to Limon a few weeks ago and was amazed at how great everything was. I've been a big Limon Rotisserie fan since they opened but Limon was head and shoulders above the Rotisserie.

          Get a little of everything. Maybe only a couple of entrees and more small plates/snacks, etc.

          Limon Rotisserie may be a little less expensive, but you need to go early. DO NOT MISS THE ANTICUCHOS. they have a fantastic version of those,
          You might also be able to get into Spork early.
