    Had 8:00 reservation. Finally got seated at 8:30. Then, room was so noisy we literally couldn't hear our waiter nor each other. So, we couldn't carry on a any dinner conversation. Food was very good and our waiter was good. But overall experience was terrible. NOT worth the $$$. Will never return.

    At the risk of repeating myself, I want to say there is no better place for sauteed soft shell crab than Limani. Once the season is over I will go to my next favorite dish, Mediterranean style, grilled bronzino. The catch is fresh, always pure bliss, presented simply but delivering on flavor. Bring your appetite, a favorite bottle of wine, order some blue point oysters, and just enjoy the Limani experience. No matter what you choose from the menu, Limani never disappoints.

    When soft shell crab is in season, you will always find us at Limani. Having this favorite seafood entree elsewhere has always proven to be a let down. We also feel the same about the whole grilled bronzino. They prepare this fresh, whole fish, in such a simplistic but flavorful manner. We also enjoy their oysters on the half shell, succulent and briny, a dozen is never enough. Ready for a summer seafood fix? Limani is the destination.

    My husband started with oysters from the raw bar and they were so fresh and clean. The lobster bisque was excellent and loaded with pieces of lobster. Crab cakes and stuffed shrimp were delicious and portion sizes are reasonable. If you're looking for excellent seafood, Limani is the place. We love BYOB's and this was an excellent choice!

    I went with a group of friends and I ordered the fish tacos. They were awful. I ordered an entree, blackened salmon and it took over 30 minutes to get to my table. The salmon was good because I ate it at home. My party finished eating and had the bill when I got my food. Where we sat was very noisy. I would not go back.

    Food was great; we split a fried calamari salad which was AMAZING we also split a grilled octopus salad which was just ok. After that we had a trio hummus platter which was sooooo good!!! We split a whole dorado for dinner it was super soft and moist and fresh! The dipping oil and seasoning with the bread is excellent . They have cran walnut rolls too that they don't like to give out because they go very fast; but if you ask, they will bring you some ! Delicious !

    Our party of 4 were impressed with the overall food quality and efficient service to this BYOB place. Red Snapper special, Salmon special, crab cakes and Cod were all perfect. However, bring your ear plugs or get lucky and get seated in the front away from the larger of the two dining rooms. Conversation is difficult.

    The mussels and andouille sausage appetizer was delicious and the scallops were prepared to perfection. the menu had a very large selection and everything looked good. It was really hard to choose. We started out at a table by the back door and there was an odor coming in so the waiter graciously moved us. Everything was great from that point on.

    its Westfield not New York City! I thought the food was absolutely delicious the bread was nice even though that was not fresh. I like warm bread not cold bread. Especially since I was the first one there at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. I see the menu selection was very nice however about 30 to 40 percent too expensive

    Went out to dinner on a whim craving oysters and softshell crab. I had both and loved every bite. My husband had the ahi seared tuna and it was ruby red and butter soft. My soft shell crabs were prepared in a wonderful wine sauce and the oysters were briny, cold and delicious. Our date night was perfect, great food and a couple of glasses of cabernet, who could ask for more? Any one looking for a seafood fix must try Limani's. You will not be disappointed.

    This was the first time I had eaten in Limani and was pleasantly surprised at the quality and presentation of the food. The restaurant was busy and they probably could have had more waitstaff, but the waitress we had was very pleasant and accommodating. I had children with me and they were kind enough to bring their food before the rest of our table so the hungry kids could eat before they caused a problem.

Our server, Robert, made sure our water and wine glasses were always filled and that we had all that we needed. It was July 4th and the restaurant was packed yet the appetizers, entrees, dessert and coffee were served in a timely manner. Thank you Limani for a wonderful evening.

    Lemani has one of the most varied selections of seafood and fish in the area. The atmosphere is nothing special and it can be a bit noisy; but if you want to choose from a half dozen types of fresh fish or the full range of seafood, this is an excellent and reliable choice. Additionally, they offer a number of Greek appetizers and generous salads, including a classic Greek salad, which is shareable.

    Anyone who loves seafood will be torn apart just trying to decide which things to eat, from the many fantastic sounding dishes on the menu. From our very first encounter with the staff (on a torrential rainy night that would have made Noah nervous) , to the end of the meal cappuccino and desert, everything was just superb. The food was great, particularly the sea bass. As the rain soaked clients each came through the door, the maître d just kept smiling and handed towels to those who needed them. From now on, when there is a storm, I'm thinking seafood and heading to Westfield.

    birdsthewordVIP
    Dined on 6/20/2014
    I love the soft shell crab at Limani so much that I do not opt to open the menu. At this time of year it is my seafood pleasure and Limani's does it best. The crab is not fried or heavily breaded and sauteed. Instead the crabs are simmered in a flavorful Mediterranean style sauce that begs to be soaked up with bread. The ruby red tuna seared rare is a must try for tuna lovers. No where else can you enjoy such a great entree that melts in your mouth. Whole Bronzino, Mediterranean style, is another of our favorite choices. With its delicate flesh and nutty flavor, this fish begs to be served whole. Service at Limani is thoughtful and accommodating. This restaurant is a neighborhood gem!
