    Do not know if it is, but Limani Restaurant has to be the top, or one of the top, seafood restaurants in New Jersey. The fish is always fresh and cooked to perfection. When I want any kind of seafood, Limani can always be counted on. The owner, George, and all of the staff, including the servers and the cooks, are always gracious.

    Food is always consistently good. A little too much sauce for our fish, but we like it on the simpler side. Get the prix fixe for the best value. They let you customize any dish and this is unique, so do it if you want. Service was fantastic and very attentive. We were there for an Anniversary dinner and when our waiter found out, he brought us dessert with a candle. Special place!!

  • Disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    We reserved through open table requesting a good location table since it was a double celebration special occasion. After waiting at least a half hr in the crowded vestibule, with the hostess saying just a few more minutes continuously,our party of 6 was then seated at a makeshift table that was literally like a fold up outside wood table placed right next to the service Station which was quite loud and annoying with little room behind for the waiters to walk by without bumping into the chair. Our waiter was very kind and efficient which helped. We were given 2 complimentary Appetizers But we had all ordered one anyway. The food is fresh and good but with so many restaurant options, we don't need to go back there anytime soon.

    Our overall experience at Limani's was excellent. The menu was extensive with delicious Mediterranean fare. There were several selections of appetizers, entrees and desserts, as well as a full page of Chef Specialties. The food was prepared elegantly, and the portion sizes were generous. The owners were present supervising everything and were gracious hosts. We had a problem with our friends arriving late and they were able to seat us in a timely manner. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner and would highly recommend this restaurant.

    We have ordered bronzino in many restaurants and none prepare it better than Limani. Grilled to perfection along with a Mediterranean sauce that just enhances the nutty flavor of this fish. Try an order of fava beans instead of the usual lemon potatoes and you will have a meal fit for a king. If a whole fish isn't your thing, there are always 10 or more seafood specials to choose from. The oysters are always briny fresh and succulent. Our daughter loves the fish tacos. Kudos to George and staff.

    The "hot" grilled seafood appetizer was not hot and did not have grill marks. The lemon sauce was nice. My grilled sea bass was also not hot. The sides appeared to be sitting in a pot and just thrown on the plate. And again not hot. For the prices that are being charged the kitchen has to step up the food a lot. The waiter was very nice and the maitre d was we're nice when arriving and sitting me.

    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.

    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!
