We had a great meal here and the staff were excellent, explaining the menu for us and gave excellent advice on menu choices. We all enjoyed our evening at Limani very much and would readily recommend it.

We have been for lunch
And dinner many times
So we decided to bring a friend before a show at radio city
her fish was dry but they took off bill and handled it so professionally
My husbands fish which was a whole snapper was good but not excellent
And the oysters were extremely watered down
We will go back again bc the waiters are so professional and the atmosphere is great but we will be careful as to what we order

Always enjoy the lunch prixe fix. I think the price recently went up, so less of a value than before. The food, service and ambiance are great... Tables in places are a little close, but the staff is accommodating when asked.

Food was delicious. We dined early enough to take advantage of the prix fix which was varied and delicious. I had lamb chops which usually is not included in a prix fix menu. Drinks were expensive, but we averaged that with prix fix and felt it was fair. Our server was attentive without being annoying. The restaurant is all white and it’s very clean and peaceful.
My only complaint was that even though we checked in with the hostess, she marked us as “no show”. Thankfully Open Table looked into this and corrected.

The food is solid but the lunch rush is so loud you have to yell across the table. The servers are usually very friendly but this time they were not - they were rather unattentive and looked kind of annoyed just overall, not at us. Probably won’t be going back, our ears were ringing when we left :(

Great waiter.
Our original table was too small.
We asked for the manager and were seated at a much better table.

The food was delicious. I really enjoyed the tomato, cucumber and feta appetizer. Being allergic to shellfish, I ordered the chicken breast and it was excellent. The restaurant is beautiful and lively. I just found it a little difficult to hear the person I was with because of the noise level. I would definitely try it again.

This was an amazing dining experience. The restaurant itself is gorgeous ,the staff were so friendly and the food and wine was out of this world. Our daughter has a dairy allergy and the personal advice as to what she could have was incredible. We love this restaurant and I am only sad that we don't live on New York so cant go more often.
Its not cheap but it is worth every penny.

The service was friendly,knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. Everyone ordered from the prix-fixe dinner menu and the food was great. The room is lovely. Ask to sit near the pool. We had a great time and will return.

Great location, nice and smooth design inside. I had the tuna, which was perfectly cooked, and my wife had the salmon which she was pleased with. Shared a bottle of Italian white and had a dessert each. Pleasant and tasty meal, good service. It's a bit pricy but you get what you pay for. Keep that in mind in NYC

It was a Friday night and they weren’t that busy so starting at 9:30 they asked us very nicely to order and move our evening along... as it wasn’t busy and they wanted to go home. I get it and I am sympathetic but our whole meal ended up being more about leaving than enjoying. Our Lamb was excellent as was the calamari app. Service was fine - but they just wanted us gone which taints things.

I took my daughter and her boyfriend for dinner. Had been in this restaurant before and I was very pleased with food and service. This time we decided to order from Restaurant week menu, it wasn’t a lot of choices, but we were okay. Fish was excellent prepared and appetizers were not so bad. We had a great time and enjoyed our meals. It’s not cheap, but you pay for fancy places and excellent food. Will definitely come back.

A waitor's disgusting attitude ruined my experience at Limani. The waiter was 5.7" tall, middle Easterner in his 30's-40's with black hair and dark skin. He started to ruin my feeling by asking me what to order in a very discriminating look. Also, when I was ordering, I was not aware that the lunch menu offered that day was a cheaper, 2 course restaurant week menu. I eanted to order as usual the 3 course lunch pre-fix without paying much attention to the menu. That's why I asked him whether he wanted me to order desert together or later.
He looked as if I was the most ridiculous person to see in his life, telling me to order regular menu without explaining anything to me. Yes, I agree that I am an older, short Asian guy, not well dressed. However, you never treat your customer with such a disdainful attitude. I couldn't argue because I didn't want to embarrass my friend who I invited to the lunch. I regretI leaving 15% tip and I should have seen the supervisor.
It was the most terrible experience.

A breath of fresh air in Midtown. Our first choice of a bottle of wine we chose based on the sommelier’s recommendation was past its prime. They took ot back after really trying hard to convince us to drink it. We went with a label we knew for the second choice and enjoyed it. Appetizers, esp the fried zucchini and greek salad was especially delicious.
