We have been going to Periyali for years and it is our Greek restaurant of choice in NY. We prefer the front room. Start with bean things, including giant beans. Then have a steak kabob or grilled lamb chops.....we suggest that you order your meats rare here as they are thin. We went last night and the crowd never changes........terrific.

The food was good, the service excellent and the ambiance very pleasant. This was a good choice for six of us.

Periyali has been a favorite of mine for years - since before we had lots of Greek choices in Manhattan. It has a soothing atmosphere and is informally elegant. I went last night with three friends. We shared a horatiki salad and a stuffed eggplant appetizer, they all had a halibut entrée each and I had octopus app. We drank wines by the glad. Everything was delicious as always. The bill came to approx. $260 including tip. We did not order dessert or coffee. I was surprised they did not offer us a small sweet to finish the meal. The restaurant was not that crowded which makes me think business might be slow.

Mac, our waiter, and his superbly helpful, unobtrusive staff ( our wedding party grew as the evening wore on ) allowed all to enjoy a delightful celebration. Each dish an epicurean pleasure. Trust Mac; he knows how to fill the table with wonderful food and drink. He recommended an excellent red wine which is excellent.
The staff at Periyali this Memorial Day weekend was attractive and well-trained. I don't believe any were Greek. The $40 prix-fix menu can't be beat. We, naturally, went somewhat higher than that. You may wish to simply order a few appetizers for dinner. Order the octopus slightly under-cooked and the yoghurt/cucumber dip with extra dill

Had lunch here on a business visit to NYC. Service a bit wanting. Only one server at lunch. Small but good wine list. Interesting menu. Reasonable prices. Enjoyable experience. Will eat here again.
