    My date and I had dinner at Limani on Saturday. We both had the grilled Mahi which was delicious. We've had dinner several times at Limani and have always enjoyed the experience. They have by far the best selection of seafood that I can think of in downtown Westfield NJ easydining 10/27/14

    Everyone at our table enjoyed their fish dishes, from fresh oysters to grilled, blackened and roasted entrees. The waitress was earnest but not very well informed about the details of the dishes. However, she immediately sought the answers to our questions and brought an owner (or perhaps manager) to our table. He was very helpful and reflected the overall hospitable vibe in the restaurant. On a Saturday night it was jam-packed and very noisy, but our orders appeared in the appropriate length of time. Overall, a great choice if you're in the mood for fish.

    We were a party of 4 women and 2 infants for dinner last night. The owner was very accommodating of our request to fit us all comfortably - and reserved a large table where we had room to spread out. Our server couldn't have been nicer - accommodating, friendly, not obtrusive but there when you needed him - and he made great recommendations. The appetizer of Melitzanosalata, Hummus, Feta and Tsatziki spreads with pita was delish; great to share. Instead of the flaming saganaki cheese with ouzo, our waiter recommended a special of fried saganaki cheese with figs, which was to die for. The jumbo shrimp scampi over linguini was cooked perfectly and we also loved the linquini with clams. We will definitely keep Limani on rotation!

    I've been to Limani many times.....it's one of my all-time favorite restaurants. If you love fresh seafood, you'll love this place. We were lucky enough to go on the last night of restaurant week, so we got a great deal on a 3-course meal. My dining companions had never been to Limani, and I took them after the matinee at the Paper Mill. They raved about the food and can't wait to go back!

    We went to Limani's for Restaurant Week - and will be sure to go back soon. Portions (which most restaurants stint on for Restaurant Week) were generous. The food, Greek seafood (Limani means "port" in Greek), was extremely good. We had the flounder made lemon sole style and the strip steak - both excellent. The appetizers (a hummus and eggplant puree plate and saganaki) were perfect as were the wonderful Greek salads. Service was good - attentive and friendly without being fawning or annoying. We will definitely be back -- soon!

    I would not recommend this restaurant. The service was very good however the food preparation was generally poor. We had appetizers which where average at best. The entrees did not live up to the website's promises. Ironically the special was the worst if them all. The sea scallop special was over cooked and tough. The blackened tuna was bland with no real blackening done at all and the signature cod dish was bland and cold. Presentation was pedestrian at best. Don't waste your money.

    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!

    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.

    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.
