Spirited vibe, elegant and , classy, yet trendy decor, this Mediterranean restaurant in mid-town is always a winner for us! Pricey for a regular night out, but worth it for a special dinner with friends or celebrations.

Had a wonderful girls lunch today! We started with the feta wrapped in phyllo with honey..Amazing taste of Greece! I ordered off the lunch Prix-fix menu, started with the Mediterranean Mezze then followed by the Shrimp Saganaki with risotto. My friend got the Arugula Salad which was such a great portion and very refreshing. Our server was very attentive to our table and made our experience a great one! The ambience was fantastic. To continue our experience we ordered the Karidopita which was very tasty..we also received a complimentary dessert which everyone needs to have when they go..Cracked “spasmeno” Bakalava! I would even go back just for dessert, just Amazing -Flavorful!!
Thank You Limani for such a great experience! Can’t wait to come back!

Our servers were amazing. One said he would treat us and serve us like he would serve his own family and it did not disappoint.

The women who work the seating and reservations desk are disorganized and incompetent...had a 1pm reservation and was not seated till 120pm.
They were busy looking at their phones versus seeing when tables were open!

The food was really good however the hospitality experience was poor. Mostly at the door when we seemed way more excited than the host that didn’t bother to welcome us at arrival or thank us when we left - too mechanic, not genuine. Ambience is nice.

Upscale venue with nice prix fixe lunch for business
Place is pompous and so are the waiters.
Definitely a bankers paradise. Not many creative types in there which should have been expected
However, I’d go back with the right client.

Very good seafood prepared in a classical way, however not very creative. Service quite hectic (even if restaurant not fully booked) and not everytime friendly. Dishes have good size, what justifies high price level a bit (on the other hand simple way of preparation, see above).

Limani is an amazing seafood restaurant. We had stone crabs, oysters, a whole fish that was cut into sashimi for us. The service is impeccable. The noise level is a bit much. And all of this comes at a price....a high price. Our bill came to over $200 a person (including drinks). But we keep coming back.

Second time coming here. Food is always outstanding. The service is attentive. The prices are really high though for the size of the portions. This time we did the price fixe, so was a little better. But the crab cake app was the size of a literal silver dollar. It tasted fantastic, but there was so little of it, really disappointing. The lobster with it's $8 supplement was perfectly cooked, tender and delicious. But very small lobster. Was supposed to be 1.5 lb, but thinking more like 1.25 if that. Still it was so wonderful, really, we were not disappointed. One thing, above the pool, the ceiling is hanging down with huge grey dust strands. Against the white fabric it is quite noticeable and off-putting as I was facing it throughout dinner. Still, the food is so good we will keep coming back.

I have dined at Limani many times and have always been happy with the experience. The food is always spot on. Unfortunately, the service was significantly lacking at our last dinner there. Throughout the meal no one ever checked in to ask if we wanted refills on our drinks. Additionally, we ordered 2 items (a side of veggies and then a cappuccino) that never came. I still gave it a 3 star rating and would recommend to a friend because we have never had a bad service experience before so I am assuming this was a fluke, and the food has always been terrific.

Second yimecagvthisctrstaursnt. Brought the CEO of a high profile and they put us in the basement. I was horrified. They apparently had another event there which should have been explained prior to our confirmation of the reservation . Very shady practice. We will go elsewhere in the future

Place is lovely. Service is great. Food was disappointing and very expensive for what they served. Tomato and Feta salad was meager - 2 very small wedges of feta cheese. $27!!Really?? A better Greek salad at the diner. My swordfish and my husbands halibut was ok. It was tasty but portion was small and it was simply average. The sautéed mushrooms were good.
We were celebrating our anniversary- they presented us with a complimentary desert- a small wedge of possible spice cake with a dollop of ice cream. Not impressed but then again it was nice of them.
The piece de resistance- we gave them a gift card we had received from the Long Island restaurant and our credit card. They declined to take the gift card- said it had to be used at the Long Island location. We were shocked but graciously complied. Absolutely insane and unacceptable. Would never go there again. Also BTW the restaurant was empty- a bad sign.

A nice place if you are near Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick's Cathedral area. White tablecloth restaurant with long bar area and well trained staff. Food is pricey but good, with ample portions.

This was for our anniversary. The staff was lovely and the waiter and table captain were responsive, attentive and informative. The food was inconsistent. My steak was very good and the oregano fries were excellent. My wife’s fish was cool in terms of temp but otherwise fine. The meze was very dense and felt not fresh (the tzatziki was more like the consistency of cream cheese, rather than yogurt, for example).

The noise level is a little high, but perhaps to be expected with such high ceilings and a lot of bare surfaces.
