The service at Larimar was impeccable. We were immediately greeted, our coats and wine holders taken from us and seated at a very cozy table. The room is very beautifully decorated. The focaccia bread to start was very welcome. Our starters and entrees were very memorable: black squid ink pasta with shrimp, crab bisque, autumn salad, branzino perfectly cooked and salmon filet with mushrooms.
Great night. Great food and wonderful service
Overall it was a very good experience. Our service and servers were excellent. However, I thought the food was just okay. I would potentially return and give it another shot based on our service.
From the greeting when we arrived, to the waiter service and friendliness and food quality and flavor. All excellent. Will definitely go back. Place is also beautiful
Latinate has some nice food and some items that miss the mark. My pasta el Nero was delicious. The crab bisque was tasty but the large biscuit in the soup was chewy and had to be cut with a knife. The peach dessert was also chewy and not very flavorful. But the biggest issue is the service and ambiance - very stuffy and formal. It’s a lovely restaurant but not a relaxing, enjoyable place to dine.
Relaxed atmosphere . Nice looking room. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. They ask about any allergy issues which is very good. Best of all is the food. Wild Boar Tagliatelle was very good and the Oysters Rockefeller was outstanding. Very good Focaccia served instead of bread. Its a BYOB which is good too. Highly recommend dining there.
This restaurant by far exceeded our expectations. The food was outstanding and the service was wonderful. We will be returning again and again!
We celebrated our anniversary at Larimar- one of our favorites! Was an impeccable evening all around!
We enjoyed our dinner very much. John was a gracious host as always.
Larimar is an excellent experience every time - terrific food, wonderful service, and a beautiful setting. It is on par with many of New York’s finest restaurants
What a wonderful experience. First time my wife and I dined here and we'll certainly be back many more times. The service was excellent, the food was outstanding, and the setting was so cozy and quiet. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary so we always try to find a different place each year. We both said after dining at Larimar that we'll come back here from now on, seeing as how it was such a great experience all around. Everything is made in house. Their pasta, bread all freshly made. We had several different dishes as we were eager to try a variety of flavors. None of them disappointed. Crab bisque was perfectly balanced, not overly salted as sometimes happens in other restaurants. The spaghetti al nero and wild boar tagliatelle were absolutely phenomenal! Flavors out of this world. Divers scallops were perfectly done and our deserts to top everything off were nothing less than perfect as well. I can genuinely say that my wife and I aren't push overs when it comes to being pleased while dining out, but Larimar hit it out of the park with their food as well as their great staff! Don't hesitate to come here and be prepared to have your taste buds dancing with joy!
Wonderful experience. Small dining room made it feel exclusive. Great, attentive staff. Food was delicious. I wish the restaurant was not BYOB because I would have liked to start the evening off with a cocktail followed by wines to compliment the meal. Will definitely return for another special occasion.
This was our second time at Larimar and it did not disappoint. The service is top notch and the food was excellent (aside from the panzanella salad which was basically a $17 plate of iceberg lettuce).
Great atmopshere, excellent food, excellent service, what more could you ask for.
Creative menu; perfectly cooked, delicious food; attentive staff that made us feel very welcome.
My wife and I had a superb dinner this past Thursday
Day. My wife has some dietary restrictions and the entire staff was alerted and they went out of there way to make sure we had a wonderful evening. Hats off to all the staff. Best Bronzino I have had in years.
Don’t miss a dinner.
The service at Larimar is impeccable - professional, prompt and friendly. They make you feel like a special guest who is being welcomed into a friend's home. The quality, freshness and presentation of the food is the icing on the cake!
This fine establishment truly provides a wonderful experience. Lovely wait staff, beautiful dining room and an exceptionable kitchen .
Always a very pleasurable dining experience. Great menu and outstanding service.
All was exceptional.
We felt special from the minute we entered the restaurant (by the way the decor, appearance and atmosphere were beautiful). The food and service were beyond our expectations. We will be back soon (looking forward to it)!!!
Every course delivered to our table was absolutely delicious. We started with the arugula salad, then the campenelle. I had the braised short rib while my girlfriend had the statler chicken. Everything was exquisite, right down to their homemade focaccia bread.
Maitre’d was had a bad attitude. We asked for a specific table and he told it was reserved . No one ever showed up for that table and we were there for 1.5 hours . We know he’s been there a long time but he needs to lose the attitude and be friendlier and accommodating.
Excellent food. Fantastic
One of Spring Lake’s best restaurants. Service well timed. Menu well explained. Atmosphere unusual for a beach town but it is beautiful, comfortable and not noisy. Scallops were perfect, oysters delicious and salad panzanella good. Desserts perfect ending.
Larimar never disappoints, the food and service are outstanding. Wonderful ambiance. Make a reservation and enjoy!
I love this restaurant. Sophisticated, with attention to detail. The waitstaff is professional and pleasant. The bar is wonderful, with low key music. I want to eat here every day.
This is an outstanding restaurant. Terrific food, excellent service, and lovely atmosphere.
A bit expensive for the offering. Fish was salty and over cooked at $44 should have been perfectly prepared. The ambiance was great with upscale service
Everything was wonderful. Service was great. Food was outstanding. Scallops, blank ink pasta were favorites but filet, salmon and truffle pasta were also great. I forget the recommended dessert but my wife got it and loved it. Lemon cake was good but not as good as the specialty!
Very intimate and a delicious meal!
Lovely dinner for our wedding anniversary. Larimar has an elegant atmosphere, delicious food and personal service. The restaurant is a BYOB - another plus. I highly recommend this establishment.
Tiny portions. Very expensive for portion ratio. However, the apps and meals we had were fantastic.
Consistent delicious food beautifully prepared and serviced in a lovely atmosphere.
Great place, first call al around
We have frequented this establishment several times and this experience was disappointing to say the least. We ordered the salmon crudo and chicken roulade per the waiter’s recommendation. The chicken was very hard and dry, which I was then forced to uncomfortably send back to the kitchen (which I rarely do). The salmon crudo was a bit small, overpriced, and slightly fishy. Overall, it was not a good experience.
A dining experience. Food is delicious, portions not overwhelming. Staff was very accommodating. Very pretty décor.
Never disappoints. Knowing everything will be wonderful creates a peaceful, relaxing dineing experience. No bad choices. Wish I could order the whole menu. Does that say it all. I live 2 states away and this is my favorite restaurant. Bring a great red and great white wine and enjoy this gem!
Beautiful restaurant. Amazing service. Excellent food.
Branzino was one of the best I have ever had.
The chefs signature pasta dish was wonderful.
Went for lunch portions ridiculously small! Will not return!
