Food was amazing! Staff was generally interested in what we would like to eat and inquired about our level of satisfaction - we will be back!

Had a 12:30 lunch reservation, got seated at 12:55. The 25 minute wait for a table is unacceptable -and embarassing when you are with clients. When we finally got seated the food and service were quite good (except for the waiter knocking a glass of water on me), but the damage had already been done.

I may go back but if that happens again it will be the last time.

From the welcome greeting to our departure we felt very pampered. We were in the city to attend a concert and to celebrate our anniversary and our experience at Limani was the cherry on top!
The staff was aware that we were celebrating and encouraged us to wait several minutes while they prepared a romantic table by the infinity pool.
The food was outstanding and service to match.
We will definitely return the next time we are in town!

Upscale Greek Mediterranean Cuisine finely prepared in a modern setting by attentive staff ....the Pre Fixe menu adds to the value

The restaurant was half empty at 8 pm which was a little concerning. The food is good. We were a table of 2 and there were a lot of 2 tops available but the hostess seated us at one right next to a wall/pillar. This same hostess when we were leaving had a very bad attitude when we she got our coats and then she refused to look at us when we said goodby to her directly. Overall you can get the same or better food with much better ambiance and treatment from the staff somewhere else. It feels like a tourist trap and that is how you are treated. I would not dine here again.

I frequent Limani a lot. I would never go back on Valentine’s Day given they sit everyone on top of each like sardines. No privacy

Came here on a Monday night to try the pre fix menu after a colleague raved about it. The meal was extremely forgettable. I ordered the crab cake appetizer which was good but pretty average. I got the seabream main course and it was also fine except for the fact that it hadn’t been deboned at all. Nothing less appetizing than picking bones out of a bite of food at a nice restaurant. Waiters were not very friendly at all and seemed to find serving us a hassle. Wouldn’t go back.

We were seated twenty minutes after our reservation. The server spilled olive oil all over our table and brought us the wrong dishes and ignored us when we needed the bill. I was looking forward to this lunch but disappointed.

While the food was very good the service was terrible. I felt that we were being rushed. As soon
as I put my fork down the plates were quickly taken away. The bill was put on our table as we were
eating dessert and before the coffee was even served. Not exactly a relaxing meal.

We recently visited Limani before a concert at Radio City. We had been here two years ago before another show and the meal was excellent - not so much this time. We arrived at 5 PM and the restaurant was fairly empty. We ordered from the prix fixe menu, and when we asked to order dessert later, the waiter told us that was not possible because it was Restaurant Week and they would be too busy later - the entire order needed to be in at the beginning. We felt very rushed as they brought out the courses quickly - which by the way were much smaller than at our previous visit, and frankly not as good. The appetizers were tiny, the main course of Lamb Chops was extremely fatty and served with what I imagine were frozen french fries from a bag which were lightly seasoned (a far cry from the hand-cut fries with oregano that we had during our last visit). For dessert, my wife had the lemon sorbet which was extremely bitter, but my walnut cake and lavender ice cream was pretty good. By the time we got halfway through the meal, the place was packed and noisy - they squeezed a table behind us and we were so close the person behind my wife kept hitting her chair. We were so rushed that we completed our meal in a record-breaking 40 minutes and were glad to get out of there after this disappointing meal. I guess some of this can be attributed to Restaurant Week, but after this experience, we will find another place to eat before a show or when in the area.

We were there for the Restaurant Week Lunch. I had the scallops, and Loup de Mer and my friend had the Mediterranean Meze and the Tuna burger. Both dishes were delicious. The waiter was very attentive and we appreciated that he was very amicable. We had a great time and will be back at this restaurant in the near future.

I had taken my friend for lunch to celebrate his birthday. He enjoyed the grilled scallops garnished with citrus and olive oil, and the tuna burger served with white radish salad and shredded fried zucchini. Light and delicious. I enjoyed the mediterranean meze and the grilled organic salmon served with steamed vegetables. The food, the ambiance, and the walnut sponge cake with cinnamon, cloves, and honey syrup served with honey lavender ice cream dessert made a delightful birthday.
