Went during lunch and the food was FABULOUS! Had the greek salad, tuna sashimi, peppers, and the Kolokithi (which is one of the best things ever).

The decor is fabulous. You will feel like you are in Greece. The food is outstanding. I had their lunch special which is a really great deal. I got grilled scallops for the appetizer. They were served perfectly grilled with slices of orange. For the main I got salmon cooked rare. It was served with broccoli, both made perfectly. And for dessert I had the walnut cake served with vanilla ice cream, also perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant. It is very crowded and quite noisy around lunchtime and starts quieting down at around 2 PM.

It was so loud as to not be enjoyable (and we got a table not in the thick of things, but turned out that another table backed RIGHT onto it, so even when other tables cleared out, that table had a noisy group right on top of us). (There was a kind of curtain of mesh to separate the tables, but the people were in fact backed right up next to our table--and were very loud...) The food is very good, and the service was OK, but the noise made it impossible to hear each other talk....

Even though it was so hot outside and Roc Centre was teeming with crowds the restaurant was cool, quiet and relaxing. The octopus was the best I have ever eaten and the snapper was cooked brilliantly.

Amazing food. Best filet mignon I’ve ever had and my husband thought the lamb was the best he’s ever had. The service was excellent without being overly solicitous. During reservation, I’d mentioned it was an anniversary and the waiter brought out a piece of cake with a candle after the meal to celebrate. Wonderful ambiance.... all in all a great way to celebrate our special day.

The freshest fish -- and you select it yourself after a discussion with the servers about the day's catch and how the chef is preparing the fish. You can even select the fresh veggies are side dishes. Great ambiance and service. Perfect for a pre-theatre dinner.

Not good at all. Horrible service all around. And the waiter spilled food all over my sport coat and didn’t even acknowledge or offer to clean off. He just left food sitting on it. Before that happened, they were supposed to course the dinner out and instead just brought all at once. Never even refilled water. Never going back after having 20 plus good business lunches there.

Great seafood for a midtown restaurant. We had the lunch prefix menu. The price was great for everything that was included. I had the avocado salad, salmon main dish, sorbet. All come played beautifully and were just as tasty.

We love Greek food and really wanted/expected Limani to live up to our expectations. The octopus appetizer was ok. Cut into pieces. Not nicely grilled. Boring. The Greek Meze dips were uninspiring, bland and boring. Nothing special. We ordered a side of sliced cucumbers for the dips as one of us can’t eat bread. We were charged $12. Do you know how many whole cucumbers you can buy for $12? The charge for the meze was removed from our bill as one of them tasted like something had turned sour. The $68 Dover sole was eh. The consistency didn’t seem like it was super fresh as would be expected from a place like this. The shrimp in the shrimp saganaki was three undercooked shrimp and a spoonful of rice. The broccoli rabe while tasty was too undercooked. Sorry but we will not be returning. Too many over the top great Greek places in NYC to either try out or return to.

In comparison to Milos and Avra it’s not good enough, very noisy, service is very low and not professional enough, the food is not so fresh, specially fruit plate , fish was plenty of bones in it, and the lunch menu is more expensive than higher rated restaurants like I named before. Only pasta with lobster was good! Nothing to complain. You can try it once but we are not going to come back

I love Limani! They have an amazing selection of fresh seafood that is always impeccably prepared. The staff is amazing and prompt. If you can make it for lunch, I highly recommend the octopus and the lamb chops. It's worth the additional cost. I've tried most of the items on their menu and I have yet to be disappointed. In fact, I have a challenge trying to figure out which one to choose since they're all delicious. Enjoy!
