We have eaten here before but this time it was even better. There were four of us and each one of our
dishes were delicious, fresh and full of flavor. Two of us ordered off of the fixed-price menu,
so much food and very delicious. We had wonderful doggie bags to take home.
The service was great, very attentive.

Attentive wait staff, food is amazing and very affordable as it is BYOB.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodI have been going to Limani since it opened. George knows how to run a restaurant providing the freshest ingredients and great staff with a pleasant attitude. The menu is extremely varied from simple grilled seafood to more ambitious mediteranean food and it succeeds on all levels.
I'll be coming back for a long time.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Night at LimaniMy boyfriend and I had such a fantastic dining experience at Limani Seafood Grill!
The restaurant offered such a yummy-sounding extensive menu that we wanted to order everything, but we ended up ordering the fish taco app, steamed littleneck app, the lamb chops, and the whole bronzino. We were extremely satisfied because everything came out hot, in a timely order, and exactly as we requested.
Although it was very crowded when we arrived at the restaurant, we were seated promptly by a very friendly hostess. Our server, Stacey was very attentive, friendly, and professional. She recommended many great entree choices which helped us narrow down our choices. And wow, the owner was such a pleasure to talk to! I really appreciated how he to4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW! What a great restaurant!Before dining here, I had heard lots of good things about this restaurant, but never imagined exactly how good it is! There were 4 of us, and everyone had something different, and everyone LOVED their meal! The food was fantastic! The service was friendly and attentive, but not overly so, and our waiter was very knowledgeable about all the dishes and answered all our questions. I just can't say enough good things about Limani, and we WILL be back....soon!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite local restaurant!Once again Limani satisfied each and every person in our party. Each appetizer was delicious, and all the main course were prepared perfectly. The fish was fresh and sweet, and the veggies cooked so they were crisp and bright.
I cannot wait to return again!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAs mentioned before a bitAs mentioned before a bit noisy because of the small size. Service was outstanding. Cheerful, attentive, and helpful in every way. The food was surprisingly average. The raw oysters were fresh and fantastic but the cocktail sauce had too much ketchup and the mignonette was too overpowering as well. The calamari were nice and tender although a bit bland and the marinara and Asian sauce were both under seasoned and disappointing. The entree sea bass was excellent all around although the roasted potatoes were more like boiled. The special entree of scallops was very disappointing. They were cooked perfectly but the apple and fig side was way too sweet and overpowered the entire dish. That and the sauces gave the food 3 stars.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and wonderful service,Good food and wonderful service, but they should consider replacing or getting rid of the pictures in plastic file folders.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food was fantasticAs always the food was fantastic and the value was great. The prix fixe menu outdid itself, including a whole maine lobster as one of the entree choices. Delicious as always!!!!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great meal at Limani.Another great meal at Limani. The extensive menu of seafood choices always provides options for everyone.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMScrumptious SeafoodThe fact that it is packed on a Friday night with a line of people waiting for a table really speaks for itself. If you love fresh, perfectly prepared seafood this is absolutely the place for you! The crispy and spicy buffalo shrimp salad is the best salad I have ever tasted. I order it as an appetizer everytime I go. My husband always gets the daily selection of oysters. I usually vary what entree I get and it never disappoints! I grew up in NYC and this place rates high on my best restaurant list!
I have gone in large groups and as a couple- so glad it is located in my home town of Westfield!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHolidays Done Right!Spending Easter Sunday at Limani's was absolutely the right way to go!
Food was excellent (especially the LAMB), service was outstanding, and the company was superb! Not having to clean the house, shop, cook, and clean up afterwards made the day even better.
George and his whole crew made everything wonderful. Very warm and welcoming with a great selection of appetizers, unique main courses (in case anyone didn't want lamb), and delicious fresh desserts.
Many thanks to all at Limani's to making our Holiday even more special!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great experience,Always a great experience, no surprises, just wonderfully fresh seafood and BYOB.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHad heard prior to arrivalHad heard prior to arrival that was too loud. The noise didn't really bother me; restaurant was vibrant with energy as people are having a good time with great food. The service was very fast, which for me was great but could be bothersome to others. I suggest ordering apps first and taking time, then order meal after apps are finished. This will extend the meal.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Specials Never Cease to Amaze!Don't know how the Owner, George, does it week after week and always having so many new and inventive specials - all done to perfect!
This week it was fresh crab and guacamole nachos for a starter. The calamari appetizer was excellent along with the word famous fish tacos! Mains this week included halibut is a fresh tangerine sauce (yum), sauted monkfish in a light and delicate lemon and wine sauce, and HUGE shrimps for the scampi.
We return all the time because of the creative dishes, great portions, courteous staff, and awesome Owner! Being a BYOB is the icing on the cake.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was delicious andEverything was delicious and the serving sizes were large; we only ordered 3 appetizers and had plenty to take home. The grilled octopus is heavenly, and the fish tacos had some surprising flavors - just the right amount of spicy plus some avocado that perfectly balanced everything. One of the waiters sings and plays guitar on Thurs night (maybe Friday too?) - our table was right in front of him and the music volume was just right - not too loud. It was romantic. The place was packed, but not too noisy.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMHave returned to this storefrontHave returned to this storefront seafood restaurant in Westfield several times and have never been disappointed. The price fixe 3-course menu available mid-week is a real value. The quality of the seafood and the interesting preparations are well worth the $39 price tag. I had the cod prepared mediterrean style while my husband had the stuffed atlantic char. Both were very well prepared and delicious. Our waitress was excellent, attentive, knowledgeable, and very friendly. All in all, a wonderful dining experience.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best seafood!!!Another absolutely wonderful meal. That's why Limani IS our favorite restaurant.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had diner there on a SaturdayWe had diner there on a Saturday evening around 7:00. We really liked the ambiance in the back room and the service was well-timed and friendly. My husband really enjoyed his cod with pistachio. The fish was fresh and well done but he would've preferred not having it sit on so much mashed potato. My steak and side dish were delicious. We will return to try more dishes to this very good BYO.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe place was packed on aThe place was packed on a Saturday night, with a large queue in front of the hostess, so don't show up without a reservation. It was quite noisy, which is a factor of small size and popularity. That was the only reason why we did not ultimately rate it as "excellent" as we strained our vocal cords holding a conversation. The food, nonetheless, is EXCELLENT, starting with Mediterranean staples for appetizers and continuing on to various seafood entrees. Our company of four tried nearly a dozen items on menu and found all of them delicious (I especially enjoyed flaming Saganaki cheese and the Monkfish special). BYOB helps keep the cost of the meal down.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb Seafood!The food was very fresh and extremely tasty. Had some raw bar food to start followed by coconut shrimp and lobster bisque soup. Entrées were the specials, and they were certainly special! I look forward to coming back to try other dishes that sounded equally appetizing.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointed. AlwaysNever disappointed. Always get an excellent meal. Beast seafood in northern New Jersey.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll Be Back!We had an excellent dinner at Limani Seafood Grill this week. It was my first time at this establishment although my date had been many times. Our server, Katelyn, was excellent. We availed ourselves of the very reasonable Prix Fixe menu which is available during the week only, apparently (if I have that correct). I had monkfish, while my date had swordfish. They were both very tasty. Prix Fixe included apps, salad, and main course. The baba ghanoush and hummus I had was really great - especially if you like your food on the spicy side.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLimani is one of our favoriteLimani is one of our favorite restaurants in this area. The food is excellent, very consistent. We love the appetizers (Kumamoto oysters, Thasalomezes (char-grilled seafood), Saganaki (pan-seared greek cheese, flamed with ouzo) and the mediterranean whole fishes, particularly the Bronzino / Lavraki. It is great also that you can bring your own wine.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLimani: Tops for SeafoodLimani is the best place in our area for fish and seafood. We both had specials: mine was pistachio-crusted tilapia; he had monk fish. Both excellent. It was a "lively" Saturday night, so if noise is a problem, I'd suggest another day.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother excellent meal atAnother excellent meal at limani........delicious monkfish and cod on the menu this evening.

Bronzino was our choice and it was a good one, grilled to perfection accompanied by asparagus and lemon roasted potatoes. Lobster bisque soup was creamy and delicious, the steamed mussels in white wine were tender and savory. This is the place to go for fresh seafood!3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly remarkable food!Friday night during lent and needing the best fish meal ever? Start with fresh lump crab cakes or fish tacos and for your main try the Bouillabaisse which was just added to specials menu or my husband had Monkfish Santorini!
Huge portions that we couldn't even finish and ended up with a great meal the next day.
This restaurant never disappoints between the Owner and Staff - not to mention the BYOB and quality of the innovative food.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed a shellfish loversWe enjoyed a shellfish lovers dinner. The three tiered "Chateau" and a bottle of Pinot Grigo made for a spectacular night. Jumbo shrimp, lump crabmeat, oysters, clams, lobster and king crab legs were artistically presented with plenty of cocktail sauce and lemon wedges. This is appetizer and dinner all in one. A must try for serious shellfish enthusiasts.2/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood FavoriteGeorge and his entire staff never fail to make for a great evening.

Limani is a destination restaurant that never disappoints.1/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the seafood castleWe had the seafood castle for starters and ordered the seared tuna entree to share. The shellfish on the tower was out of this world. The oysters were plump and briny, the clams firm and sweet. The jumbo shrimp were firm and were complimented by a tomato/horse radish sauce. The lobster was steamed to perfection and the crabmeat chunks were huge.
There was so much food on the tower, we almosted groaned when the entree arrived. Still we managed to enjoy the rare shashimi quality tuna, seared perfectly rare. A great seafood experience. Thank you Limani's and staff.12/22/2012 12:00:00 AMThe best fresh seafood around.The best fresh seafood around. Last night we enjoyed the seafood sampler as an appetizer.
At Limani they offer a fresh array of shell fish and lump crabmeat that would satisfy any raw bar fanatic. Our grilled salmon, swordfish and stuffed trout entrees were tops. My seafood fra diavalo over linguini was also cooked to perfection. Limani is the only place to go if you want a great selection of whole, raw and grilled fresh seafood!12/9/2012 12:00:00 AMAnother fine meal at Limani........Another fine meal at Limani................with excellent service...................12/8/2012 12:00:00 AMOnce again, the ruby red tunaOnce again, the ruby red tuna entree (blackened and seared rare) was the hit of the evening. Three in our dinner group ordered it. There is no better place to enjoy this quality grade tuna than Limani's. My scallop entree (blackened), along with the fava beans and sauteed spinach was another great choice. It was 9:30 PM on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was packed. By far, Limani's is the best restaurant in Westfield!12/1/2012 12:00:00 AMAnother excellent meal atAnother excellent meal at Limani............One of our favorites...........11/18/2012 12:00:00 AMOur friends, from China, cameOur friends, from China, came in for a visit.
