Limani-Roslyn is just fabulous. It is a true authentic Greek restaurant that makes you feel as though you were in Athens. As soon as you are seated delicious fresh pita bread along with hummus and baba ghanoush arrived at the table. The drink menus from the house specials were delicious. I had the Mango Martini that had Absolut Mango, Cointreau and Mango Puree and was divine. Also ordered was The Odyssey that had Ciroc coconut vodka and a splash of pineapple juice. I felt like we were on a tropical island. The Tomato Salad was so flavorful. Fresh ripe red tomatoes, cucumbers, green pepper, Greek olives, onions and a fantastic Feta, brought this salad together. The Patzaria roasted beets and skordalia was magnificent. The skordalia was just amazing. The scallops were delish. Seared bay scallops with citrus and mint was a delight. The calamari was fresh in a light pan fried and served with a Marinara sauce and a basil sauce that were very tasty. The Loup De Mer was a moist, mild Mediterranean Sea Bass with Horta. The filet mignon was out of this world. This crusted and cooked to perfection piece of meat, melted in my mouth. This piece of meat from @fdalemeatmkt was just outstanding. The Greek potatoes were crunchy and bursting with cheesy flavor. The swiss chard was very fresh and full of flavor. Not to be left out were the amazing desserts. The baklava was so flaky and luscious. The karidopita is a walnut cake served with vanilla ice cream. This cake was moist and yummy. My personal favorite was the Greek yogurt with cherries, walnuts, cherries in an amazing honey syrup was to die for.
When I drove up to Limani- Roslyn, I knew that this was a very impressive place to be.he valet took care of my car, and were very nice youn men. This restaurant is gorgeous from the exterior to the inside. It is big and beautiful. It is open and yet seats many. It is comfortable, relaxing and it makes you feel as if you were in Athens. The high ceilings and beautiful light fixtures are breathtaking. When I walked around and I saw the kitchen and servers preparing the food, I knew this was going to be amazing. The fresh fish on ice in the center of the restaurant was fantastic to see as well as the showcase of meats from @fdalemeatmkt.
The hostess is a lovely young lady as the maitre d’ was wonderful. He was very helpful as he assisted in ordering on the menu. The staff was very nice. We were taken care of and never once did we feel rushed. I definitely plan on a return trip to Limani to try their other delicious dishes.
