    staff were very attentive once sat and made sure that any questions about the menu were answered accurately. there was a trainee who insisted we speak to a more experienced bartender which i loved. thankfully, we were able to give our compliments directly to the chef for the octopus and salmon bites. drinks were phenomenal with the bartender Hec (sp?) being very accommodating and knowledgeable. would 100% love to return.

    We went to Limani for Valentine's Day. It was a pixe fixe menu. It is a gorgeous, large restaurant. The appetizers came on time and were tasty. Unfortunately, it took an exceedingly long time for the main course to arrive. We were in the restaurant for over an hour and a half without our main course - and the couple next to us, who arrived 45 minutes after us, had their main course long before us. The waitress was apologetic and said that another waiter serving the table next to us (why?) had switched the tickets in the kitchen. We complained to the hostess and our food arrived. Unfortunately, my steak, which I ordered medium, was rare. They quickly switched that as well. Ultimately, they provided us with a complimentary meal, which we did not ask for but appreciated. Perhaps Limani was overwhelmed with a full house, but they should have anticipated this on Valentine's Day (indeed, they DID anticipate it, with the fixed price menu), and overall it was a disappointing experience.

    We were there for Valentines day experience (pre fix menu) which was expensive but plenty of food! Live music was very nice and service is good once they finally made their way to us (had to wait 15 min before our order was taken). Overall a lovely atmosphere and the food /drinks are always top notch.

    A delightful evening, as we continue to work our way through the Limani menu. Our gracious and attentive waiter from a past visit recognized us and greeted us warmly. Our waitress this time, Orieta, delighted us with her smile and care - and made us laugh with the explanation of how she got her name. The manager, Zoe, introduced herself soon after we arrived and stopped by again after we ate. All of them, plus other serving staff, looked after us very well. Our party of three enjoyed favorites from prior visits and tried new-to-us options too. Repeats: The lovely olive oil provided to dip the complimentary bread. Spanakopita, with its wonderfully flavorful filling, perfectly-crisped phyllo wrapping, and a bit of a creamy sauce on the side. And, grilled vegetables. Anyone who "doesn't like vegetables" has never tried veggies like these: an ample portion of asparagus, bell peppers, onions, and more, grilled just right and served with a delicious sauce (on the side) and several planks of grilled Halloumi cheese. New-to-us: Halibut that my mother-in-law deemed delicious. Pastichio that my husband liked, and called "Greek comfort food." Though I'm typically not a fan of noodles and sauce combos - just too rich for me - the stuff *was* tasty. I turned the calamari appetizer into my entree (along with the grilled vegetables), and enjoyed the generous portion of slightly charred yet moist and very tender squid. As we finished dinner, Orieta offered complimentary tastes of a Greek liqueur but we were just too full to enjoy it at that point so we declined it. As we walked through the restaurant after dinner (we'd had a table near the back), it struck me that all the diners we walked by -- families, couples, foursomes, groups -- just seemed relaxed and content....enjoying their evening. And mmmmm, their food looked good.....

    I was not expecting much, so I wasn’t disappointed. I have been eating Greek food in Boston for 33 years and have an idea of good Greek food. This wasn’t it. Pros Nice setting Excellent service Innovative menu Cons The phyllo dough was not phyllo dough. It was hard and crusty. No Greek would have served this and still called themselves Greek. Reach out to me if you want to learn. The Mousska was was pathetic albeit still tasty. I fondly remember my visits to Greece with the light custard on top of eggplant and meat. It should be delicate but filling. This was not. The prices were outrageous for the quality of food. If you want to charge 5 star prices, then start producing 5 star food. The tuna tartar should have been light and flavorful. It was oily and bland. WTF?

    1. Asked for plain water and the waiter brought out a bottle. They poured us one glass each from the bottle and then proceeded to top off our glasses with pitcher water. Charged us $9 for the bottle of water 2. Ordered the chicken (described on bone in) recieved 3 chicken tenders, 1 piece of broccoli and cauliflower, and 2 carrot slices. The chicken was so SALTY it was inedible. Waited 30min for the waiter to return and by this time my companion had finished eating their meal. The manager comped dessert (which was so substandard literally hard as rock fried dough balls). Will never be coming here again. For a $150 meal I would have rather eaten anywhere else.

    We had an early dinner at Limani. Beautiful decor with fresh seafood display and open kitchen. White tablecloth service. We had an excellent server who was appropriately attentive. We started with the grilled calamari. Didn’t taste super fresh. Tentacles were nicely grilled but tubes were not and a bit slimy. We split the seafood special red snapper with a very light piccata sauce (probably too light). Fish not well seasoned but was well filleted with only a few bones. Wasn’t bad but had a mild fishy taste. Rest of menu was heavily Greek and looked good. Nice wine selections but glass of wine a bit too high for the quality.

    Went to Limani for the first time for my husband's birthday lunch (did lunch vs dinner as kiddos were in daycare). Lunch is a great time to go, not too busy and still the whole menu is available to pick from. The food and service was a 10/10. We will be back. Zoe the GM introduced herself, wished my husband an HBD and gave us a free app card to use on our next return. Food we had: Octopus app, 2 dips app (loved the tsaziki), sagunaki cheese (amazing), spanikopita and tuna tartar, then for dessert deconstructed baklava (Yum) and strawberry pavlova (Yum). Next time I want to try the mousaka though!. This place is great, a little pricey but definitely tasty, we will be back!
