Dined this evening and while the food was excellent, the service was very poor. The hostesses were friendly and attentive and seated us at a two-top in the middle of two other similar tables and we enjoyed meeting both couples on either side primarily because we were all experiencing such poor service. We had at least four different waiters, had to ask to order drinks after about twenty minutes and then a similar wait to order the meal after inquiries about the drinks twice. Finally ordered and salad came immediately but entree again was severely delayed. Ordered a second round of drinks and those were delivered, again after questioning their delivery. We were completely finished eating when they arrived. Then it was necessary to ask about dessert. The only promptness on the part of the waitstaff was the pickup of the credit card after requesting and waiting for the check a long time. Seems very disorganized and that’s too bad. Would not return.

The ambiance is amazing, but the service was horrible! We never received the bottle of wine that we ordered. The food was fine, but far from outstanding. The very expensive do not reflect the quality of the food or service. We were very disappointed and would not chose to go back there again.

We dined here on a Thursday night in December. The restaurant was packed and the noise level was very high. Yelling at your dinner partner at the bar and table isn’t a fine dining experience. The food was good but service was not attentive and it took forever to receive our food and there was a longer than usual wait between courses. This may just have been an off night for the particular waiter which is fixable but noise level is a more difficult issue. My hearing is fine but I had a sore throat the next day from straining my throat. Needs addressing to increase experience and value. Great location.

Good food, good ambience, average service. Extremely loud and very difficult to have conversation. Not worth coming back.

One of the best meals we had in NY at that price range. The calamari and crab cakes and grilled dorado were amazing.

The Pre Fix is a great deal. The food is lovely and I just love the Greek yogurt dessert. I’d order just to get that. Nice atmosphere. Good for spotting celebrities

My husband and I do not get a chance to go out often , we have a two year old and a 2 month old, so when we got the opportunity to go out for our anniversary I knew I wanted to go somewhere special. I did some research and landed on Limani, the online reviews were glowing. The second we walked into the door we were greeted warmly. The ambiance is amazing, the place is beautiful, the waiters are excellent, the drinks are delicious and the food is too die for. I can’t wait to visit again.

I am of Greek descent and usually avoid Greek restaurants. The octopus appetizer was better than any octopus I’ve eaten in Greece.

I can’t think of another restaurant where all the staff you come into contact with remember your seating preferences and what you ordered the last time you were there. This is one of the many elements that makes Limani- NYC a favorite restaurant for us. Fresh (in many cases, live) seafood—some of which are hard to encounter here in New York, such as carabineiros, langoustines, and Portuguese sardines—are simply but expertly prepared and the vegetable side dishes are also simple and full of flavor. Flawless service and a minimal, elegant (but not cold) décor round out this wonderful restaurant where we have celebrated quite a few birthdays, anniversaries, and other special dinners.

Acoustics are terrible, restaurant was way too loud for a lunch meeting.

Can’t hold a conversation and hear the other people at table.

Waiters were rude, just wanted to rush us out to turnover the table.

Spirited vibe, elegant and , classy, yet trendy decor, this Mediterranean restaurant in mid-town is always a winner for us! Pricey for a regular night out, but worth it for a special dinner with friends or celebrations.

Had a wonderful girls lunch today! We started with the feta wrapped in phyllo with honey..Amazing taste of Greece! I ordered off the lunch Prix-fix menu, started with the Mediterranean Mezze then followed by the Shrimp Saganaki with risotto. My friend got the Arugula Salad which was such a great portion and very refreshing. Our server was very attentive to our table and made our experience a great one! The ambience was fantastic. To continue our experience we ordered the Karidopita which was very tasty..we also received a complimentary dessert which everyone needs to have when they go..Cracked “spasmeno” Bakalava! I would even go back just for dessert, just Amazing -Flavorful!!
Thank You Limani for such a great experience! Can’t wait to come back!

The women who work the seating and reservations desk are disorganized and incompetent...had a 1pm reservation and was not seated till 120pm.
They were busy looking at their phones versus seeing when tables were open!

The food was really good however the hospitality experience was poor. Mostly at the door when we seemed way more excited than the host that didn’t bother to welcome us at arrival or thank us when we left - too mechanic, not genuine. Ambience is nice.

Upscale venue with nice prix fixe lunch for business
Place is pompous and so are the waiters.
Definitely a bankers paradise. Not many creative types in there which should have been expected
However, I’d go back with the right client.

Very good seafood prepared in a classical way, however not very creative. Service quite hectic (even if restaurant not fully booked) and not everytime friendly. Dishes have good size, what justifies high price level a bit (on the other hand simple way of preparation, see above).
