Great experience!! Can’t wait to go back.
Amazing food and service!!!
Very friendly greeting upon arrival. Decor was upscale beautiful and very rich looking and comfortable seating. Christine was our waitress, she was very congenial, an ultimate professional and made us comfortable throughout our dinner. She described every dish on the entire menu to us to insure that our expectations would be met. The food was extraordinary through each of our three courses before we also thoroughly enjoyed our desserts. John Paulus, owner and chef also made sure that everything was to our liking and that we would enjoy our first experience at Larimar. Well, as two former NYC workers and very frequent diners at many of the finer NYC restaurants, my wife and I couldn’t have been more pleased with electing to finally get to dine at this terrific restaurant. We are already planning for our next experience at Larimar.
Always good and love the spaghetti al Nero
Great service and food excellent ambiance. It’s important to note that it’s a BYOB. Per the restaurant it should have been listed in the reservation confirmation which it was not. They were able to accommodate us by calling a local liquor store that delivered a bottle of wine. Overall great experience even with this small issue.
Amazingly perfectly fine everything !
Larimar is always a delightful dining event. The service starts as you walk in are are warmly greeted. It is a bring your own and as you are greeted your wine is collected and served right after you are seated. Every attention to detail is evident. The menu is wonderfully thought out each season to provide delicious plates.
We have dined at Larimar many times and always had a delightful experience.
Beautiful Entrees & Service! Loved the homemade pasta and bread
The greeting was welcoming. The room is very well appointed and soothing in its tones. Music selection was perfect to the experience. Service was pleasant . Overall lovely evening
Larimar never disappoints. Food and service are always on point. By far the best upscale dining experience in the area.
Everything was delicious! Friendly staff,
Impeccable service. Pastas are housemade and amazing!
Lovely atmosphere and great service...food was very salty
Food is excellent.
I have a lot of favorite restaurants around me. But Larimar is special. The food is an experience in itself. The service is TOP NOTCH! The ambiance is relaxing and enjoyable. So so great. Treat yourself!
Our experience at Larimar was fantastic from start to finish. Our server Lee took excellent care of us during our visit. The entrées were delicious and the flourless chocolate cake and cappuccino were excellent ending to our meal.
We love everything about this restaurant. We had a great time. The food is delicious, the service is outstanding.
Hoping we can go back sometime soon.
Interesting Menu......excellent preparation......excellent presentation. This was an outstanding dining experience. Our BYOB was served properly and encouraged. Ive had three meals here so far and they all were top quality. The restaurant can be slightly on the loud side when at full capacity but that is totally outweighed by the quality of the meal. We certainly intend to dine there again at the first opportunity.
Simply amazing. Look for indept reviews @sal.reviews on Instagram
It’s always top notch in every way fir fine dining in a stress free environment
The food was delicious and the service was very good. The staff was courteous and attentive. We will definitely be back.
Another terrific meal at Larimar. John and his team are featuring a new Spring menu to enjoy. The veal Milanese addition was excellent, as was the new pasta dish with sausage. Just the right note of heat to spice the evening up! Chocolate Torte with cherry compote a perfect finish to share. Thx!
Excellent service and food
Since Whispers is closed for repairs, we booked Larimar. This was our first time at Larimar. We were completely thrilled with our food. The restaurant is very pretty and the menu is quite limited, but what they offer, they do very well. I had the boar ragu and my wife had the chicken. Both were incredible. Although the prices were high, we both enjoyed our dishes.
It was my wife's birthday and we were treated to a birthday present of home made donuts as an after dinner treat. Many restaurants will bring out a after thought with a candle for a birthday, however, Larimar brought out some of the best, warm from the fryer, donuts we have ever had, served with an apple compote. This was greatly appreciated and we will be back.
A great meal!
Larimar from start to finish was an incredible experience! I took my mom for her birthday, I really wanted it to be speacial, especially since this year will be the first not having my dad here to join in the celebration. My mom started with the Fluke Crudo, the presentation was beautiful, the taste was perfectly balanced...highly recommend! I had a modern and seasonal twist to the classic Oysters Rockerfeller! These are really delicious...leeks, truffle oil and gruyere cheese dance well together!!! We split the duck confit risotto simply because we just had to try it and I am thrilled we did. The rissoto was cooked perfectly, reminded me of a rissoto Chef Éric Ripert would have made, that's hard to beat! Our entrees were also more than exceptional! I had the braised short rib and my mom had the pan seared fluke...depending on what you feel like sea food or beef both are devine! Oh, we did not stop there!!! The binetes and lemon cake are light decadence, a must try!!! I have found my favorite restaurant in NJ!!! Also, request Emily! She was very knowledgeable, an absolute pleasure, everything flowed perfectly my mom never once had to even look at her wine bottle! It is obvious that everyone working at Larimar truly have a passion for their craft!!!
Thank you, for making my mom's night so speacial!!!!
We love this restaurant because of its elegant atmosphere and quiet noise level. And the food is different and great too!
Excellent as usual, good to back
Fantastic service and the food was outstanding!
Took my mother out for quick dinner. Always pleasant atmosphere. Service is wonderful as always. Food is expertly prepared and the greens and all the food was wonderfully prepared. Thanks for a great evening.
We always have such a dining experience, not a meal! From start to finish I couldn't expect anything more. I don't even think they know that we walk away with a family memory that we'll always reflect back on as our perfect Easter dinner. I truly felt so pampered with the service, and the food was simply amazing. All of it! I didn't think I woud like the compote on the cheesecake, and had asked for it on the side. I apparently never had 'fresh'compote, and it was delicious! And I would have said I don't like raspberry/blueberry!!! Something to walk away with as a new food adventure.
I cannot express my complete satisfaction,... and I'm a foodie and a customer service rep.
To the staff......From maitre D, to service staff, to back kitchen. thank you, thank you, thank you,....don't change a thing!!!!
limited menu/expensive.could have been better for the price
Great quality food along with great service. I highly recommend this place. Hands on Owner as well. A nice place to enjoy a quiet evening with your significant other. Not too many places like this in this part of the NJ Shore.
Elegant setting, good service, always a pleasant experience. It is also a BYOB!!
Good dinner, my steak was a little tough but the appetizers and my wife’s dinner were great. Will definitely be back.
As always, yet another wonderful meal at Larimar! Food was superb, service exceptional. John and the whole team consistently deliver an incredible dining experience. Thx!
Food was delicious. Service was great. Enjoyable time.
We had a wonderful experience and was looking for a great dinner out. We were not disappointed! First time and will be back. Food was exceptional
Always a great fine dining experience at Larimar. Service, quality as uniqueness of the selections is a standard of this stellar establishment. It’s always our first choice for special occasions or a quiet night out in beautiful downtown Spring Lake
Fully enjoyed, looking forward to returning. Excellent in every way.
