Limani is a great local restaurant. The seafood is fresh and the preparation is on point. Both my scallops and my husband's tuna were done correctly. The service was attentive and knowledgeable.

The food was excellent but the poor service and the loudness of the dining room put a damper on the evening. I would recommend this restaurant because of the good seafood but with the caveat to expect fair service and a very loud dinning room.

We've been to Limani a number of times. All previous visits have been great. This last visit left much to be desired. We arrived on time for our reservation and was seated immediately. Our appetizers/salads came out relatively quickly and it was all down hill from there. We waited at least 1 hr and 30 minutes for our entrees. I ordered tuna and sautéed broccoli. While I ordered my tuna VERY rare, it was ice cold, so I sent it back to be warmed slightly, adding that I wanted the broccoli to be warmed as well. BTW....it was steamed broccoli not sautéed, but it took so long to get the meal, I wasn't arguing about that. When the dish finally came back, the tuna was just fine, but the broccoli was so hot that I actually burned my mouth! I mentioned this to the waitress, but she didn't seem to care. No one else came to the table to inquire if I was OK. The rest of the dinner was uneventful, but I felt slighted and I am not sure that I would go back any time soon.

Limani Seafood Grill is a beautiful restaurant with an energy rarely seen in the suburbs. The food is fresh and innovative. However, the service was awful. Our meal took over 2 and a half hours. The only excuse was that it was "Saturday Night" and the food would come quicker on a weeknight. This is unacceptable. Probably 50% of all fine dining in suburban locations occurs on Saturday Night. I also felt the food product was good, but the pricing was a bit inflated on certain items.

We ate here on a recent Saturday night with an early 6pm reservation. Restaurant was quiet when we arrived but by the time our main course was served the place was super busy. Appetizer & main course were timed well. Menu and food were quite good. Service was average, a couple of nits were annoying like having to pour our own wine. The real service problem came at the end. We received our check and put our credit card down almost immediately, which was processed quickly. We signed the cc receipt and we were in the process of finishing our last sip of wine when the hostess came by to pick up the check with the following question, “is this all set because we have other guests waiting.” Wow! The perfect way to ruin a very good costumer experience. Too bad. The hostess was perhaps also the owner or certainly an experienced hospitality professional who should have known that her comment was seriously bad form.

We are four retired guys who have about a half dozen restaurants that we rotate through for their food quality, service, and BYOB policy. Limani always delivers on our weekday gatherings specially for its seafood options. We don't have it, but their lunch special is embarrassing inexpensive. If you're fussy about seafood, this is the place.

We love dining at Limani for the whole grilled fish experience. Whether Black sea bass or Bronzino, the fish skin is crispy, the flesh tender and moist and served in a Mediterranean sauce of oil, lemon and capers. The Ahi tuna grilled rare is a must try! We always enjoy a dozen oysters as a starter and a Greek salad to follow. The salad was plentiful and oysters chilled to perfection. Our server, Venton, was on top of his game and our dining experience was superb. BYO your favorite wine and enjoy a great seafood experience.

First time here. But both me and my wife decided we will be back. Saturday lunch. This seems like a dinner place and it was reasonably quiet. Only a few others were there. Good, patient service as a relaxing meal. Shared a sashimi tuna appetizer, which was outstanding. Quality fish. Big enough to be shared. My wife had salmon and I had a crab cake burger with sauteed escarole on the side. good stuff.

We've eaten at Limani 3 times in the last few months. I find the food fine, and the service inconsistent. Our recent waiter was nice, but would disappear for extended periods. He did go the extra mile and bring a second side after he overheard my sister lament that she forgot to order the one with the meal to be prepared plain due to allergy. So kudos. Raw bar items (clams/oysters/crab cocktail) are always fresh. The Fra Diavlo was a generous portion, the calamari tender, but the shrimp overcooked.

As previously stated, It's the absolutely best seafood selection anywhere!!!
As usual, it's difficult to choose which delicious seafood or fish main course to have. All are just superb. Appetizers and desserts also are always a delight.

And, with servers like Artie, service is always PERFECT.

We've been dining here regularly since George opened up about ten years ago-it's well worth the drive from Maplewood.

This place was just OK. I'd been wanting to come here for months, but we were let down by the food and service. Our server was lovely and friendly, but she had too many tables to handle and was running around frantically. Poor girl could barely fit in between the tables they were so close together. She clearly was trying to do the best job that she could, and we appreciated that - it's not her fault she was assigned what seemed to be the entire restaurant. After a 45 min wait to get our appetizers, we were slightly let down - the $22 plate of calamari, octopus and shrimp was lackluster. There were 2 shrimp total. The calamari was my favorite and not chewy at all, but the octopus was questionable. My husband enjoyed his halibut entree, and I enjoyed the cod, but even more so the sauce on the cod. It was really good and something I would have never paired with cod. Relieved it was delicious after waiting so long for it! After 2 hours we didn't even want to look at the dessert menu or watch the poor girl struggle with tables any longer and asked the person who bussed our table for the check to make a quick exit. We noticed the three tables surrounding us also searching for the waitress, so it wasn't a situation of us being overly demanding. Again - no fault of the waitress, she was smiling and friendly and handling it to the best of her ability! It was a decent meal overall, nice ambiance, and we had a great table located in the corner, but I wouldn't be jumping to go back.

Our go to restaurant for the best grilled (whole) Mediterranean style Branzino. With a beautiful, slightly crisp skin and delicate flavored white flesh, this entree is a foodie winner. When in season, Limani prepares the absolute best soft shell crabs, pan seared in a white wine sauce. The seafood entree choices are endless with simply seasoned sides. The service is friendly and accommodating, always making for a wonderful dining experience.
