    While pricey, this just became my favorite restaurant in NYC…. Great service, amazing food, great cocktails…. And just such a nice vibe. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in visiting the tree or near Radio City.

    Our waiters were really great - but the hostess had no business being there. It was a tall blonde lady and granted that some hostesses in nyc can act a certain way, but this one was one of the snobbiest ones I’ve encountered.

    The service is in chaos. There are at least 5 waiters served us, someone gave the wine menu after we called checkout and the other one take it right away. I feel really puzzled

    We were on vacation in NYC, our hotel recommended this restaurant among others in the neighborhood. The place was tricky to find as it’s on the side of Rockefeller Plaza. Interior is very soothing, white and blue colors of Greece, with an infinity pool in the center. We sat next to the pool. I only drink dry vodka martinis and often they are not prepared well. This restaurant did it right and the serving was generous. It’s seafood and Greek fare. Saganaki is not flamed at the table but just as good. Great crusty bread. I had salmon with vegetables and my husband the halibut. Both were excellent. Dessert, try the deconstructed baklava which I chose. Waiters very attentive. We went early, 5:30 pm in the summer, restaurant was full when we left at 7 pm.

    Wasn’t great. Came for a business lunch. Hostess was pleasant. Waiter must have been having a bad day. Main course was held for over 30 mins until we finally asked for it. Not usually one to write reviews, but it was genuinely bad experience.

    Poorly operated restaurant. After we were seated, every 3-5 minutes different servers asked us “other than water are you ready for any drink order”. We had to tell 2 other servers we already ordered our mmm Mayr wine. One server later asked us if we wanted another bottle of wine and we told him we had a bottle opened, please pour us wine but he went away without filing our wine glasses. I am. It blaming on the servers, that’s why I started the review with poorly managed restaurant. The food is just okay. It’s not top notch food quality or preparation but also not terrible. If you want to be seen in rock center tourist area, you should try.

    My friend and I tried their Restaurant Week lunch menu and loved the meals we had. My Loup de Mer was perfectly cooked and the Mediterranean Mezze was very nice with several items I had never tried before. The Karidopita was a great dessert as well. The service was excellent and I look forward to coming back here again with my family and friends.

    Good food and ambience but seriously overpriced. I’m always skeptical of places with no wine on their list under $100 (though we did find one on the by the glass menu). Luckily we got the restaurant week prix fixe menu which made it bearable. Convenient to Radio City and very good for a big group (we were 9).

    We were seated promptly for our reservation. Food and drinks were outstanding: my favorites were the zucchini chips and walnut cake. If you were looking to save money, you could easily fill up on shared appetizers and desserts. Having said that, my Loup de Mer was also outstanding. The main reason for the 4 vs 5 star rating was just that the service was SLOW. It took forever for someone to acknowledge us and take our order, and then there was quite the delay in between courses, as well. I’d still dine here again.

    Everything was fine except they said they didn't start restaurant week until tomorrow. I showed them that the restaurant week menu was supposed to start today. After much back & forth, they gave us a restaurant week menu which was very good.

    Food was great, but seemed a bit overpriced, although maybe that's everywhere right now. Maybe it is just where we were seated, or it was an unusually loud crowd that evening, but it was very hard to hear conversation at our table from the echoey sound. I would definitely go back, but will want outdoor seating.

    Beautiful restaurant with great service and fantastic food! Presentation was on point and I loved the food. I sat inside so the noise level was low, but if you sit outside they have seating by the street and a pathway/rest area so it could be louder out there. There is an exceptionally GORGEOUS water feature in the middle of the room that helps to create the calm, oceanic ambience!

    Several college friends got together for dinner for the first time in maybe 4 years. The occasion was one friend from Atlanta visiting for a biz meeting. There were 6 of us, all mid 50s. We sat outside on a beautiful evening. It was a Monday night in midtown so the tourist crowd at Rock Center was small. Limani’s outdoor seating is around the side from the main plaza areas but I imagine on weekends it could be louder than we experienced. We ordered 5 or 6 small plates to share for appetizers and all were tasty. The octopus was definitely the best - grilled, served thinly sliced, warm over shredded vegetables with a very light sauce. It was quite large for an appetizer so we all got a decent amount. The 3 men got full entrees after while the 3 women got salads or another appetizer. I had the grilled shrimp, which was great and just the right size (4 large shrimp over greens). Everybody really enjoyed all the food. The servers were attentive and managed to keep everything straight despite 6 people talking at them. We had a wonderful evening!
