My party thoroughly enjoyed our late lunch and we all vowed to return one of us is a tough customer. The fish and salads are fresh and delicious. The lunch specials have many great options. We had tomato salad, scallops, crab cake, lamb chops. Everyone had a great meal. Super option for when you are near Rockefeller Center or Radio City. Better food than what you get under the tree. We’ll be back!

It was not as good as I was expecting. It was fantastically better. The noise level was a bit loud but ‘it’s the season. Highly recommend it if in the area.

The place was completely disorganized.
Customer were forced standing by the entrance door waiting for their tables to be ready. Doors were constantly opening and closing by incoming and leaving clients letting wind and called air in.
When we asked to be seated they refused because one person was not in restaurant yet even though we indicated that we would be ordering immediately.
Finally they seated-us at the last table in front of the entrance door and piled up all around us the entire dinner making it extremely unpleasant experience
The place wa extremely noise maki g it impossible to hear the person next you
Food was ok and service fairly fast as they needed the table

When I got there, the super snotty hostess told me she couldn’t seat me and my child because they were booked. The place was 1/4 full. I said there were plenty of spots open on Opentable . Clearly annoyed, she tells me to make a reservation if I want . I made the reservation right in front of her on open table for 5 (the exact time I walked in). She reluctantly seated me . Very shocked since I’m a semi regular customer . Not cool

Food and service were excellent The calamari and lam chops were cooked to perfection. The dinner price fix is a bargain considering the quality food and atmosphere. Highly recommend it

Overpaid for average food which was not prepared to our specifications. Management did nothing to rectify the situation despite our informing the staff early in the meal. Very disappointing experience.

On Sunday, December 8th, 2019, I treated my wife, Kathy & I for an evening meal at the Limani Restaurant to celebrate our Happy Three Year Engagement Anniversary!!!

Our meal was absolutely delicious and we were deeply impressed by the professionalism, the courtesy and politeness provided by the staff.

If you would like to be treated to outstanding Greek Mediterranean style dishes, and be treated with great class and dignity in a superb and well decorated restaurant, Limani is definitely the place to visit and dine!!!

Perfect escape from the hustle of midtown... It's like being transported to the Greek Isles. Service is fantastic. Food is remarkable. The baklava is a non-traditional twist that I wish I discovered years ago! Next time in Rockefeller Plaza - this is my go to place.

I will surly go again. Picked this place for a family Christmas celebration and boy did it deliver!
We were treated with great service, excellent food, and great ambiance.
I would like to point out that we went at the height of holiday hours but still received the white glove service you would hope to get from a high end restaurant.
Thanks for the wonderful evening I look forward to enjoying your food again!

The good was superb. The service team were inefficient. My vegetables were not served with the fish. The service team came across arrogant.

Dined this evening and while the food was excellent, the service was very poor. The hostesses were friendly and attentive and seated us at a two-top in the middle of two other similar tables and we enjoyed meeting both couples on either side primarily because we were all experiencing such poor service. We had at least four different waiters, had to ask to order drinks after about twenty minutes and then a similar wait to order the meal after inquiries about the drinks twice. Finally ordered and salad came immediately but entree again was severely delayed. Ordered a second round of drinks and those were delivered, again after questioning their delivery. We were completely finished eating when they arrived. Then it was necessary to ask about dessert. The only promptness on the part of the waitstaff was the pickup of the credit card after requesting and waiting for the check a long time. Seems very disorganized and that’s too bad. Would not return.

A very busy, noisy and congested restaurant with excellent food and service. Prices are very high, but the food, service and overall experience may be worth it.

The ambiance is amazing, but the service was horrible! We never received the bottle of wine that we ordered. The food was fine, but far from outstanding. The very expensive do not reflect the quality of the food or service. We were very disappointed and would not chose to go back there again.

The staff was not accommodating. We arrived at 6pm in need of a two top table. Plenty of two top tables were open. They said we couldn’t have one until almost an hour after the first reservation was available on Open Table. We told them that. They said “well then make that reservation”. Nobody ever came in take any of the two top tables. They stayed open for almost two hours before we were able to sit at our reservation time ( which they also sat us late for). They thought they were going to have a hit night because the tree was lit up the night before. If I thought in advance I’d have had my AMEX Centurion Concierge’s make the reservation for me. I just expected better, more respectful treatment from a place I have frequently given my business to. I hate to be a snob but, they were snobby to me off the bat. I’ll reconsider before I go again.

We dined here on a Thursday night in December. The restaurant was packed and the noise level was very high. Yelling at your dinner partner at the bar and table isn’t a fine dining experience. The food was good but service was not attentive and it took forever to receive our food and there was a longer than usual wait between courses. This may just have been an off night for the particular waiter which is fixable but noise level is a more difficult issue. My hearing is fine but I had a sore throat the next day from straining my throat. Needs addressing to increase experience and value. Great location.

My husband and I do not get a chance to go out often , we have a two year old and a 2 month old, so when we got the opportunity to go out for our anniversary I knew I wanted to go somewhere special. I did some research and landed on Limani, the online reviews were glowing. The second we walked into the door we were greeted warmly. The ambiance is amazing, the place is beautiful, the waiters are excellent, the drinks are delicious and the food is too die for. I can’t wait to visit again.
