    The food and preparations were excellent. We all ordered the prix fixe special for $39 which consisted of 3 courses: an appetizer, including clams on the half shell, a large portion of mussels provencale, and beets with a potato/garlic spread; a second course with a choice of salads or one of 3 soups; and entrees of soft shell crabs, grilled bronzini, pistachio crusted cod etc. There were many choices in each category. The fish was fresh and delicious. The serving staff was well trained and efficient, and our waitress was especially lovely. We had a wonderful dinner here and will definitely return.

    Super fresh, full bodied blue point oysters to start, then softshell crab in a delightful sauce of wine, capers, tomatoes and herbs...absolutely delicious. Corvino special with cannellini beans and spinach was a great choice. Always a great meal at Limani where the service is attentive and accommodating. Don't forget to bring your favorite wine, as Limani is a BYOB.

    We had a wonderful dining experience celebrating my sister's birthday. Our server could not have been more helpful, polite & professional. The hostess made us feel welcome & was very familiar with the menu items also. The food was delicious from beginning to end. The chef made sure I sampled the Crab Cakes since I was afraid to order them due to a spice sensitivity. They were excellent & will order them next time. We will be going back for sure! How refreshing it is to go to a restaurant where the whole staff really cares that you are happy!

    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.

  • Soft Shell Crab Bonanza

    Dined on 8/28/2014
    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.

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.

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.
