Had a wonderful meal and experience all thanks to the BOH and FOH staff and especially our waiter Artie. We will be back again and again. Limani Seafood Grille never disappoints and always lives to a high standard.

We had dinner last week at Limani Seafood Grill and loved it. We tried lunch today and enjoyed it just as much. We will be going back.

There is always a wait for a table and you're stuck waiting in a crowded small space. Food and service are always excellent. Very loud.

Great restaurant with delicious food. Our waiter was really good especially since out bottle of wine had an old cork which he was able to get out without breaking it. Gave us good recommendations for main entree and appetizer. Overall, a great experience!

Overall, a nice meal in a nice place. Lively, tight and bustling, but not uncomfortable. We had no problem hearing ourselves at the table. The owners and chefs take care in the food they serve; in variety, creativity and quality. I was there a while back and did not remember that there was a Greek influence.
Reception and Service was friendly and professional, especially one server who came over to assist our regular server. Our regular server was, at times, confused and a little crude, "Whaddaya want?". I had oysters for app, fresh, yummy, served nicely. One preference I have is for cocktail sauce without chili sauce in it. When I asked our server for this, she did not understand what I meant and was amazed that there was such a thing, "I'll have to try that!". It was a fun conversation; she's just young and in need of training and experience.

Limani is the go-to choice for seafood in Westfield. My mussels appetizer was so-so; tasty but not spectacular. However, the main courses--my peppered swordfish and companion's south american bass were excellent. Service was fine, a bit slow to get the check, but otherwise good. Limani can be a bit noisy for my taste, but all in all a dependable choice for a good seafood dinner and a good value.

Reservation. Seated 20 minutes late. No waiter for another 10 minutes. Food was pedestrian at best. No flavor. My lobster lover wife rated her 1.5 lb. lobster as worst ever. My blackened cod was tasteless. Will not return.

Our 2nd visit to this delightful find. We traveled from Morris county and will come back again. Four of us all had a different seafood meal, halibut, sea bass, baked clams and seared cod. All were delicious!

Very nice restaurant. The Maître d’ was very accommodating. It was cold from the air conditioning and we were moved to a better place. The food was delicious. The waiter was efficient. The dessert was Pistachio baklava. It wasn’t good. A little mushy. We will definitely come back.

Overall, Limani Seafood Grill is a great place. It was a bit on the noisy side on the Saturday night that we were there. Our waitress "lost" our main course order and had to re-take our order, but that didn't seem to slow down the delivery time of our meal. It was great that she offered a condiment (horseradish) for our appetizer of the seafood sampler, but it took a while (and a gentle reminder) for us to receive it. Despite that, the waitress was friendly enough and a great asset to the restaurant. It was a pretty bustling night we were there and that might have contributed to those very minor hiccups. Limani's is BYO, which we did. They offer bottle opening and an on-table bottle chiller. Our seafood sampler appetizer was great and consisted of very fresh oysters and clams on the half shell, very large shrimp that were crisp and well cooked, and a fair amount of lump crab meat. The main courses were of varying fishes (there were four of us, each ordering a different meal), and good responses by all as for the flavor and quality.

Love, Love, Love Limani. The food is always delish and service is great. Only problem is that it get's very noisy. Most people talk way too loud when out at a restaurant now!!! The restaurant was not even full so I cannot imagine going when it is really busy. But definitely put this one on your list. You will not be disappointed in the food or service.

Wow! The service and quality of the food were amazing! This was my first time and I will definitely be back - the owners/hosts were both so very warm and helpful that they make you feel like family.

I really enjoyed my meal - everything from dipping the warm, crispy bread into a fabulous olive oil with herb mixture to the rest of the Prix Fixe menu!!

Well done!! They made our experience very special.

Food as always was excellent!! Mediterranean salad is a staple for us. Huge salad with lots of extras. Chili lime swordfish was very good if you like spicy, which I do!! Service was excellent. Never had a bad meal here. BYOB is a added bonus.

Dining room was crowded and noisy. Service was terrible - we waited 70 minutes to place an order, and the waiter’s attentiveness, attitude and communication skills left much to be desired. Food when it eventually arrived was lukewarm at best. Very poor value.

As always, a totally excellent meal!!! Even when it's a bit crowded as it was last Sunday, the service is really fast.
And the food- the best seafood anywhere within driving distance of where we reside in Essex County.
That's why we have been regular customers since George first opened up about ten years ago!
AND-we'll be back soon------

We have dined in this restaurant many times over the years and have always enjoyed our meals. The restaurant is always a bit crowded and sometimes very noisy but simply the best seafood we have found. Reservations are a must!

Diner experience at fine dining prices. Noisy, crowded. I had the coconut shrimp appetizer, over cooked. Zero points on presentation of any dish. Any diner presents at least as good or better. I will say the fish was very fresh, albeit swimming in sauce. Service was very attentive. However, the lack of ambiance, noise and poor presentation outweighs that, especially when most entrees are $30+.

first time there for 3 of the 4 of us and the 4th had not been there in a while. our waiter was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. he was able to answer questions we had and recommended very good appetizers. was a quiet night, but the restaurant was clean and welcoming. dinner was cooked to perfection (swordfish - 2 different entrees, tuna and flounder). and had very good sides. the wasabi mashed potatoes were excellent. the cheesecake for desert finished it off nicely. would go back again and recommend the restaurant without hesitation.

We went during a quiet time; when we arrived we were the only ones there. Food was delicious! And service was delightfully fast (we told our server about a time constraint we were faced with). I don't live in the area, but I will definitely visit again if I am!

Very good seafood, and service. I had the Chilean Sea Bass, done very nicely, My wife had the Scallops and they were also very good. Celebrated my sons 30th birthday and we all enjoyed. Service was very good with Alex jumping in.
