Still delicious. Ate inside; forgot how nice it was in there. Food is so fresh and good. Seafood ceviche was outstanding. I had fresh grilled fish, wife had the big eye tuna. Table shared the fried zucchini and eggplant - a must. Then the baklava for dessert. It wasn’t the traditional baklava -was a fun and very really good play on it. Would definitely order it again. Service was excellent.

The appetizers -- shrimp on a bed of avocado and lightly breaded scallops -- were perfect, while the sea bass was so fresh that it winked up from the plate. Yogurt laced with honey melted on the tongue, accompanied by a refreshing falanghina.

I am giving this low rating because of the host’s rude behavior. First he refused to seat us outside claiming that rain was coming (was not). Then did not want to seat us because we were only going to have appetizers and dessert. When I pointed out to him that my office was across the street and that I frequently dine there and even had lunch at Limani few hours prior, then the attitude changed. I was with 4 of my staff members. Though the food is in general good and some waiters are super nice, there is a managerial arrogance there that turns on off. I hope that the owner reads my message and takes corrective action.

I’m a veteran diner in Manhattan and been here before. The food is average and overpriced.

There are SOOO many other restaurants that are much more enjoyable than this one.

Tuna tartare was warm and over seasoned, we skipped out on the main course since everything was sub par.

They even gave me a hard time over a virgin cocktail!

I’ve been to Limani over seven times and it’s always great. The food is suburb. The drinks are delicious. The service is top-notch. The ambiance is peaceful and quaint. No complaints — ever! Always a good choice for lunch or dinner.

From the moment we walked inside the door until we left, our experience was extremely pleasant. The ambiance was lovely and the food was outstanding. I ordered the crab cake and it was absolutely delicious and very pleasing to look at also.
My friend ordered the avocado stuffed with shrimp, and it was very good, too. She smeared it on the bread that accompanied our meal, and it was wonderful.
My salmon was grilled to perfection and very moist. The sea bass was “the best she had ever tasted” and was perfectly charred, both flaky and flavorful.

It was a special birthday luncheon, and my friends’ walnut cake came with a surprise candle, perfecting the celebration. I ordered the Greek yogurt with honey and toasted walnuts, and I hate to repeat my friend’s words, but, “It was the best I have ever had.”

Great staff and great food always make a special occasion even more special. A shout out to Samuel for perfection at his job.

The atmosphere in the restaurant was very welcoming and beautiful. It gave an expensive feeling to the place with the set up but the food was not as flavorful as I thought it would’ve been. Maybe I’ll trying something else next time.

Was here for mother’s day. Ordered two loup de mer and was given one, and the server presumed that the one order was to share between two people. “Didn’t want to give you too much” was the excuse. Wasn’t the point, was given one, and I didn’t want to bother with it one more time so ordered calamari instead. Bland, I don’t recommend it. In the process of getting the table cleared, a large piece of grilled onion landed on my elderly dad’s shirt.

Come on. I’ve been here so many times over the years, and it’s always been good. This was the last time I was going back.

Appetizers were ordered and took about an hour and half to be brought to the table with each one being brought out about 20 minutes after the next. My friend and I ordered our steak cooked well and it came out very uncooked. Overall I expected a lot more from this place. Had to send the steak back twice although they took it off the bill I was disappointed it was my BirthdY dinner and I didn’t have any.

Very fresh seafood. Excellent and attentive service, however we were there on a slower evening. A bit pricey, but it is at the Rockefeller. Comparable to other high end places in midtown.
