The prix-fixe lunch menu is a great deal for a gourmet seafood meal! We had the avocado shrimp appetizer followed by the Sea bass and the Greek yogurt with honey and nuts. It was all outstanding, fresh and service was exceptional! Limani never disappoints!

Good atmosphere, if you like seafood it’s very fresh. Sitting by the table waterfall is nice as well

Food was very good. Service was a fail. All courses raw bar, apps, main were dumped on the table simultaneously except for the salads which they forgot yet charged. They comp’d us a round of drinks for sloppy service and fixed the bill but not worth the price of admission for a special occasion with many other venues to choose from.

First time to Limani. We were seated right away ( we did have a reservation ) . Service was excellent, food was awesome. My wife had their salmon and said it was one of the best she had ever had.
Octopus was cooked to perfection and the big eye tuna was scrumptious.
Highly recommend.

The service was very poor. The staff has not been trained to work in an exclusive restaurant. They serve and remove dishes from the wrong side. They serve by reaching across other guests. They asked a guest to hand a plate of food to another guest. Three of us ordered filet minion asking for three different degrees of wellness All three were given to the wrong guest. My filet had too much salt and seasoning. The baklava desert served to four of us was dry and tough rather than tender. And all of this mess cost $455.

This dinner was a celebration for our daughter’s twenty fifth anniversary.
VERY DISAPPOINTED.

Limani will be our first choice restaurant when dining near Rockefeller Center. The grilled octopus was the best I have ever had in my life. Everything we ordered was delicious. The restaurant is beautiful, the service is warm, this Greek restaurant is a gem!

Although we were impressed with the ambiance of Limani and it’s close proximity to Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, our overall impression was disappointing. At the time of our visit, the restaurant was not filled to capacity yet it took nearly an hour for our meals to get to the table for a party of 4. Mind you during this time the tables around us who arrived AFTER us, were served promptly. The wait-staff disregarded simple requests such as asking for the specials of the evening or even butter yet they brought it to nearby tables. The lack of communication was mind blowing especially since majority of the time the wait-staff were standing around the restaurant and not attending to tables. The overall experience was disappointing and I nor my accompanying guests will be returning.

Limani was a pleasure from start to finish. The Greek salad had the sweetest tomatoes I have ever tasted and the zucchini chips were outstanding. The swordfish was done perfectly. The restaurant is beautiful and located right in midtown across from Rockefeller Center.

Christmas Eve dinner. Across the board it was a good but not great experience. Drinks were a little hard to come by and the meal felt a little rushed. Staff was pleasant and our order accurate. Perhaps our experience would have been more extraordinary if we went for a a later meal and stayed away from ordering prix fixe. It was a pleasant experience just fell a little short of our high expectations.

French martini was just barely so so. Seafood -- grilled squid was excellent and royal dorado was good. Service was very pleasant but the restaurant is way too noisy and it makes having a conversation impossible. Expected more of a fine dining experience and was disappointed.

Average Greek food. Service was not so good. They couldn’t give us the receipt to pay because stated the system was down.
Dips ( meze) were below average. They were like purée.
Mushrooms were very good.

Some of the best seafood I’ve had in Manhattan. Will definitely be back. Service was lacking however. Slow on the drink service especially. That being said, not enough of an issue to keep me from a second visit!

Table seats were outdoor furniture. Had to request real chairs

Two $50 each lobster dinners were served cold-warm

They did offer us a nice complimentary dessert.
