    Food was outstanding. We have eaten here before. Took us flagging down a waiter to get attention. Our main course took longer than normal, and it took asking two busboys to bag our take home because of that we missed our train by 10 minutes. . That said it was a Saturday night on a holiday weekend. The server was knowledgeable and friendly. Overall a good date night - just word to the wise - don’t be on a time schedule.

    By far the worst dining experience Service was barbaric Food (Swordfish dry and inedible) Atmosphere was just loud and chaotic Usually you get what you pay for in NYC- I could have used my $50 piece of dry overcooked fish to plug a hole in a wall. An absolute insult to both my tastebuds and intelligence. Never ever again.

    Have been going to Limanis every year during the holidays, but this year it fell short. Service was disorganized, took long for someone to great us at our table. Our appetizers came out cold and before we received our drinks. Entrees were rung in wrong and brought out cold again. Chicken was dry and bland. Unfortunately this year they could not handle the chaos’s of the holiday crowd. Looks like we need a new restaurant next year.

    Not one to ever leave reviews, but was extremely disappointed by our experience last night. Waited over 30 minutes to get menus, didn’t have a waiter the entire night, had a chef come over and take our order. Staff just walked by us and the tables next to us all night. Food was cold and bland. $40 for four pieces of grilled shrimp that were cold, tough, and didn’t have any seasoning. Lamb chops were over cooked and served cold. Waited an hour after we finished eating for the check, no one ever came by to see if we needed anything. As Greeks who have eaten at countless Greek restaurants, nothing “upscale” about the food, restaurant or the experience. We totally understand that the restaurant was busy with all of the people visiting the tree, and tried to be as patient as we could, but there is no excuse for the lack of management and direction, not when you’re spending $200 per person on dinner.

    Meh. Nothing to see here. It’s overcrowded given its location. The food was average at best. They really struggled with service. There are too many tables in the restaurant. I understand they are trying to serve as many people as possible but it’s hurting their quality. If you are a party of two, you may be seated at a table that measure 23 x 29 inches (which is so small, they have to serve the food onto your plate and remove the serving platter). Their wine is more than a 4x markup so get ready to pay up or drink water (which is what we did).

    Booked a table for 2. The table was not even large enough for 2 dinner plates. Ordered the grilled shrimp appetizer and the shrimp were not cooked through and not grilled. Finish cocktail before the main course, left empty glass on edge of the table, never offered another drink. Entire staff running around like crazy, excessive noise level and blasting music.

    We would not recommend Limani. It is very loud and the tables are packed in too tightly. I was bumped all evening by people trying to get through the tight tables. We ordered oysters. After trying two, we sent the text back as they tasted fishy. We got another round of different oysters, and same issue. Half of the food we ordered came cold when it was supposed to be served warm. It feels like a tourist trap meant to look nice but then the quality is terrible once you’re there.

    Beautiful space, very LOUD. If you are looking for a quiet place to talk to who you bring, this is NOT it. Food was, for the most part, very good. Service, spotty. Two couples next to us who came long after us were eating and drinking before my wife even got her first glass of wine . Seemed frenetic and disjointed. While it was good, I don’t think we will be back.

    Although the food was very good, the service was subpar! Our tables head server seemed to be bothered by us being there as soon as he realized he was not going to upsell us for the “l’agostino’s”. He checked his Apple Watch 3 times while we were giving our order and keto asking “anything else” as if we were at a McDonald’s drive through. Even more disappointing was the fact that we were a table of 4 and when he dropped the check he informed us gratuity was already added - which explains why he didn’t feel the need to really perform his duties in being courteous, and warm.

    Disappointing overall experience. Service was very slow/inattentive. Limani chips appetizer came out cold and stale. One of our guests didn't receive their main with the rest of us. We waited over 5 minutes for her to receive her main and by then the rest of our dishes were cold. Vegetables were grossly undercooked (practically raw). Great ambiance and location, but subpar food and service unfortunately. Had high hopes and was let down.

    Definitely the poorest service to date in New York. 915 reservation and was sat about 945. Clearly busy and overwhelmed. App and salad came out quickly then another 30 before we were notified they were out of lobster. Another 20 before I went to speak to manager who said thank you for letting me know of your disappointment. Biggest issue was lack of communication. Obligatory desert was offered but by 1045 we were done. Placed mention on open table for daughters birthday which was blown off. This place is beautiful and missing the mark. Bartenders were great. Waiters polite just everyone off.

    The service was terrible. I ordered a cocktail when we sat, told them I wanted a wine with my meal, had an empty martini glass about 15 min after receiving and was never asked again if I wanted a drink. I had to chase a server down to get my spouse her first and only glass of wine. Food came out slopped on the plate. It looked like food scraped of if a dirty leftover plate. No one came back to the table to ask how everything was it if we needed anything. I had to stand up and walk to the server to ask for the check. I dine at Limani in Roslyn often and that one is awesome. I expected more. We would’ve been better off eating at a street vendor. This was the worst experience I have had at a “fine dining” restaurant.

    Overall, a really nice dining experience. The restaurant is clean and modern looking. It was packed to capacity, yet our table was available just 2 minutes after our scheduled reservation. The good was DELICIOUS! The service was professional yet friendly. Food was delivered quickly. The only reason to loose a star is the noise level made table conversation a bit of a challenge. It was rather loud. However the excellent food and service made up for that singular drawback. Would definitely return and recommend.
