The lamb chops were perfection! If you know sign language or can lip read this is the restaurant for you. The noise level was so loud that I could not carry out a conversation 3 feet away. This restaurant is designed to amplify the ambient noise. Great for some I suppose but not for an intimate dinner.

The prefix luncheon was excellent in the number of choices on the menu and the quality of the offerings selected by me and my dining party. For a mid Manhattan location in Rockefeller Plaza, it was also moderately priced. I would recommend Limani for a business lunch or a day out and about in the City lunch.

The service was horrible.
We had to ask 3 times for more pita to go with the dips we ordered and twice for another napkin.
Waiter over poured the water, then brought over another empty glass to pour it into. Poured over our dips, got water into it and didn’t care.
Kept pushing wine on us, but otherwise we were ignored.

Iwe were treating our son’s future in laws. We were very embarrassed and disappointed.

Incredible food, service, and ambiance. Of course it's pricey because it elegant dining in the heart of Rockefeller Center, but worth it. They've got fresh fish, which is on an ice display in the back, and prior to ordering, one of the chefs walked us back there to take us through the types of fish they had. My wife said the fish was fresh and delicious. I got the lamb chops (not much of a seafood guy) and they were incredible! We got the spanakopita as an app, and it was by far the best I've ever had - freshly made and delicious. Ambiance is great too. Highly recommended.

They made my wife and I feel extra special. The price was very reasonable. We had the prix fixe. At other places I’ve eaten, I’ve paid about 300 for a prefix and was not as satisfied as I was with Limani Prix Fixe menu which was season/cooked perfectly and almost a third of the cost. The manager walked over to greet us at our table and was very pleasant along with the wait staff. They catered to our every need.

We didn’t know that there was a special limited menu for Valentine’s Day. It was fine for me but not as much for my husband who doesn’t eat seafood. Delicious nonetheless!

Service was a bit chaotic with utensils dropped around us by the wait staff repeatedly. I was bumped over a dozen times by different waiters. The chair seat backs bend a bit so you’ll get a seasick rocking feeling each time. My date would have to stand up to let people into the tables by the window a couple of tables next to us. Elbowed by a waiter serving food to a table next to me. The second elbow I had to ask the waiter not to do that and he apologized. Asked for two sharing plates for our entrees. A waiter suggested one instead of two because of the size of the table. I agreed one sharing plate made sense. I never got the sharing plate - not one. $300+ bill with a bottle of wine. So disappointing

Food is pretty good in terms of taste. Service is just okay.
In terms of value - way overpriced. But I would come back.

Service was poor. It felt like the bus boy was hating everyone and the waiter was busy running around. The octopus did not taste fresh. Had a soggy texture to it. Had better expectations.

One of our favorite places to go Greek! You mostly likely need a reservation we went for lunch at 12 by 12:30 it was packed and people waiting. Grilled Octopus is very good! Limani never disappoints!

Pricey but good! The ambiance was amazing, the service impeccable and the food was good. I had the lobster and pasta dish based on the waiters recommendation and I didn't enjoy it as much as the shrimp apps and mussels app. My boyfriend had the lamb chops which were really good. The star of the night for me was the bread and olive oil!

We enjoyed the price fix menu and felt it was an excellent value. The food was delicious and the waiter was very helpful in making selections of wine. I was impressed with the size and flavor of the lobster. It was delicious. The atmosphere is beautiful as well. Prices on the ala carte menu were on the high side, but if you can find selections on the price fix menu, it is well worth the trip.

One of my favorite seafood-focused restaurants in Midtown. Love the freshness and preparation of their fish. Chef let’s the fish stand out for itself and doesn’t bury it in sauces or heavy seasoning! Impeccable service. Eating at the bar is awesome too. Expensive but worth it due to quality.

Food was very good and would recommend to friends and service was excellent. My only criticism is that we were given the worst table (in front of the kitchen door where the waiters would brush up against you) in the restaurant despite the fact that we had reservations and there were plenty of empty tables.

First of all, the food is really excellent. But if you order a $16 glas of Prosecco you'd expect it to be really cold, which was not the case. Prices are definitely on the high end, the service is very friendly and professional (except for the drink temperature). Only 3 stars because the noise level is really bad, you have a hard time to talk to your friend on the other side of the table without leaning way forward. Also most tables get a chilly draft from the AC. Otherwise the ambience is very nice.
