For my wife and I, Limani is a hidden gem among restaurants on Long Island's North Shore specializing in Mediterranean cuisine. We enjoy going there for a sumptuous Sunday Brunch buffet. Upscale and elegant, Limani knows how to do a buffet.

Let's start with the carving station - rosemary crusted prime rib and roasted leg of lamb cooked to perfection. Then, there's the seafood bar with all you can eat shrimp, and lobster. According to the chef, the seafood comes from Nova Scotia - and you can tell! If you like Eggs Benedict (like I do) no problem - just ask at the omelette station. There's such a broad selection of hot and cold dishes plus desserts - not to mention several specialty Greek selections. The only buffet item Limani does not have is soup - but the chef will make it for you.

Now let's talk about the service. Reservations are recommended. We were greeted at the host/hostess stand by name. Table linen and cloth napkins, white. Well-groomed, polite waiters in white and black. The Service is impeccable and always merits a generous gratuity.

We've never been disappointed at Limani's.

On Long Island's north shore, Limani is one of the finest dining experiences. The $ is on the high end, but there is a prixe fixed menu before 6:30pm during the week that offers the same elegant dining experience at a lower price. The lunch menu is delicious and well priced. Service has always been excellent although Saturday nights are extremely busy.

Went to dinner with friends, took forever to order....when a waiter finally came we received our meal and drink order and was never checked on again. Nice ambiance, the food was mediocre, but the service was terrible. The waiter seemed bothered, no matter how beautiful a restaurant, how good the food, if the service is poor restaurants fail. The hummus and pita they finally put on the table almost a half hour after we were seated was inedible.. would NEVER recommend or return

I eat here whenever I can. The food is really great and the service is always spot on. The appetizers are superior and the fish dinners couldn't be better. Great drinks and wide wine selection. Desserts are perfect if you still have the room. Don't miss it.
