Food was delicious. Our server was great and has a very sweet disposition.
Great service and great food! Excellent!
Perfect from reservation to dessert
We chose to celebrate our 35th anniversary at Limani Seafood restaurant and made the reservation through the open table app because you can alert restaurants about special occasions. The only reasons for not granting 5 stars (we would have liked to give 4.5 but can’t give half stars on open table ) was because there was absolutely no acknowledgment of our special day. We weren’t looking for a freebie, just to have it acknowledged that we choose to celebrate there, especially since we almost never dine out due to Covid; having said this, our server was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Re: Covid protocols, it was refreshing to see hand sanitizer at each table and staff wearing masks well, we only wish our silverware had been wrapped as we heard this was a thing... Tables were well spaced and thought was given when placing newly arrived dinners to the restaurant to minimize passing others.
Our food was delicious, from the warm crusty bread served with poured olive oil on plates with an abundance of crushed herbs, to our appetizers and entrees. We started with mozzarella caprese and a crab cocktail. Both were quite good. The caprese was dressed with roasted peppers and well-flavored bread crumbs and toasted baguette slices. The crab cocktail was chilled well and the side sauce had a nice tang to it. The Alaskan cod was served in a light tomato sauce on an abundance of mashed potatoes and was outstanding. The sea bass, prepared in a lemon caper sauce with diced tomatoes and roasted potatoes, was also a winner. The sauce wasn’t overpowering and the portion was plentiful and cooked just right. We ate so well that we did not leave room for dessert but we imagine it too would have been great.
We will return to Limani.
Limani NEVER disappoints! From the moment you walk thru the door and are greeted by the owners and friendly staff until the time you leave. We are always treated like family and service is always on point! The food is always delicious and fresh ...high quality seafood and meats cooked to perfection! Highly recommend for a delicious and incredible lunch or dinner!! Our favorite seafood place!!
I started my meal with a half-dozen Blue Point Oysters: the largest and freshest and tastiest I have ever had. The steamed Maine Lobster which was my main course was also delicious.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Highly recommended.
I remembered having a tasty, fresh, seafood meal here a few years back. This time the experience was completely different and disappointing. We were the only people there for lunch on a Sunday—maybe not a popular time for seafood, OK. The food was extremely mediocre, at best and extremely high in price. A spanakopita appetizer that was greasy and most likely microwaved was close to $14. 4 slices of seared tuna, very small and thin—which is OK for an app—but $19. Overall, My sister and I had oysters, an app each and a bowl of soup to go and cost us $50 each with tip. Felt as if we had not even eaten when we left. Sad for this place and the very gracious waiter, but I will never come back. Oh, and the music was a montage of the most depressing and dated sappy Celine Dion ballads From the last 20 years: All around depressing and ungodly expensive experience.
We started with the lobster bisque and spicy buffalo shrimp both were delicious. The lobster bisque was creamy with plenty of fresh lobster chunks on top and in the soup as well. The buffalo shrimp had three large shrimp crispy spicy with a delicious salad on the same plate which was a nice surprise dressing was awesome. We bought a bottle of sangria in with us and the waiter who took our drink order Brought us back to glasses with ice and freshly cut up strawberries and grapes which was very nice of him. My wife had their lobster special which was basil pesto on top of capellini. the lobster was perfectly cooked and the dish was delicious! I had panseared scallops with spinach and roasted potatoes. It came with a orange basil sauce which was good but a bit sweet for my taste with scallops but The scallops were cooked perfect. Service was friendly a tentative and top-notch. We will definitely be coming back
The ambiance when entering is much different from where we dined in the back room. We have mixed reviews on service. Our first waiter didn’t even ask what we would like to order and forgot my husbands drink. We called over another waiter and he was happy to help. Very attentive and great to talk to(Anthony). He took our order and kept checking on us. The food was delicious. My husbands swordfish was thin and wasn’t a portion for a grown man but good. He also had a lobster tail which he said was phenomenal. The plating was lacking as you eat with your eyes first. I had the red snapper filet! The snapper was delicious but the sides lacked imagination and the potatoes while cooked could of had a crisp to them. We both had dessert which was great but as we sat we realized something was lacking. There was a disconnect. We are foodies and eat in restaurants more than Id like to admit but to have caviar on the menu but Red Lobster decor doesn’t work. The ambiance, and menu don’t match. With the price the service vs food vs ambiance should create the perfect experience.
Limani has just become one of my favorite spots, and it only took one time! The owners wife greeted our party at the entrance in the warmest and most comforting way while abiding by CDC requirements during the pandemic. Nonetheless, the charm did not stop there. This BYOB restaurant is sure to satisfy your needs from the fresh variety of seafood dishes to the flavored top steak dishes. The food is perfectly seasoned and presented on a top scale in a neighborhood restaurant. In addition, the owners wife provided my mother with just enough birthday appreciation that she needed to celebrate her 59th blessing on this earth. Limani is a must visit restaurant and has my service for many times to come!
Some of the best food in New Jersey!
first time back to visit since all the covid craziness... Absolute best restaurant. George the owner is awesome. His staff is excellent. ARTIE. ARTIE ARTIE...., he is our server. We always request him. Great guy. George was busy enjoying company with friends upfront as we left around closing time on a Saturday night. A quick fist bump and a welcoming smile. That's George. Love him and his wife. They always are pleasant. The food is always fresh and spot on. Hats off the the chef and his staff. My NY strip steak was cooked perfectly. it was one of the best steaks I have ever had. Ling had a 2lb lobster that was stuffed with real crabmeat. It was so fresh it was broiled perfectly. She LOVES 2 things. Harry Potter on the big screen and a perfect lobster. Well we seen that movie in the new Watching Cinema and then right to Limani. A perfect evening in a crazy time life. Thank you ARTIE, the for excellent service. Thank you George the fish whisperer. He chooses the freshest seafood. I think he Talks to the fish. "Fish Whisperer" Plan on heading back next weekend to enjoy this restaurant again. It's clean and follows all the new mandates. Temperature check on the way in. Spaced tables. I really missed this place. It was so nice to come back and see them. Bobby out.... Merry Christmas everyone....
One of our favorite restaurants in town, food and service always excellent.

The food was ok. Nothing special. Service again was ok
This was my first visit to this restaurant. I was overly impressed with everything from the food to the staff and the owner who came around and checked on the patrons. I left completely satisfied and look forward to my next visit.
Great overall experience. The food and service was exceptional. The Owner,George, has done an great job of not compromising the quality of the dining experience while dealing with the myriad of COVID-19 Restrictions.
I am looking forward to going back to patronize his business and support his staff.
Awesome food and service!!! Love this place and try to get there when in NJ

Limani Seafood is the Place! WOW
Excellent food and service.
On the street:
We sat outdoors on a relatively warm night for Nov. The standing Heaters did their job to keep us comfortable. The cars roaring past us sounding off their mufflers were a distraction.
Our server wasw quite pleasant hoever he did make an error with ordering one of the main dishes. It was quickly rectified and as an apology the restaurant covered the cost of dessert.
We would return.
Food was authentic Greek - fantastic as usual and the fresh Tsipora was as good as it gets!
Vasilia, one of the owners, was delightfully engaging and prepared a special dish for me - a BIG thank you!
This time we brought our friends with us :). Always great Food and good dining experience.
Delicious dinner fresh ingredients
We had a great time sitting outside. They kept social distance very well. Had oysters, red snapper and shrimp entrees. Food was very good as was service.
Great food, service started off attentive but after they delivered entree, never checked in and forgot about us. the place wasn’t busy so I don’t understand why serves forgot about us.
Always wonderful! George, Vicky and the great wait staff and people cooking the food get it right every time! Great BYOB with so many choices. Had the lobster bisque, king crab legs and their new almond cake for dessert that we’re all terrific.
Food and service were fantastic. They gave us a complimentary slice of cake for our anniversary. It's a BYOB. We ate outside, a bit loud on that busy road. We enjoyed our meal very much!
We already made plans to return for a birthday! super nice experience
Limanis always delivers an excellent quality and experience even when dining outside on the sidewalk! Always a favorite of mine.
Very enjoyable meal,food and service was great,will definitely come back
Last night was pretty chilly and they had the heaters on. The octopus salad was outstanding and the crab cakes and the zuppa de pesche was excellent as usual. George is always there and he takes care of his customers. I've been going there for years and have always had an excellent experience. The place is a fish market during the day. I should try it.
