We recently revisited Periyali for a family dinner, it's been over ten years since our last visit. I'm always impressed when a restaurant manages to keep the edge serving great food with great service in a nice environment. Would become our favorite Greek restaurant if it was closer to home

Periyali is a sedate oasis of Greek cuisine in Chelsea. The assorted appetizers were all delicious as was the moussaka and the lamb chops. Service was prompt and the noise level low. Not hip or trendy, Periyali is an adult gem

Not our first time. Maybe our last. Service below average. I know Greek food is salty, but this was beyond. Sad, it's seen better times.

For decades, Periyali has been serving the most delicious Greek food in NYC (the most delicious Greek food ANYWHERE) in a lovely, upscale dining room. We have dined here with family, friends and business associates, and everyone, ever visit, raves about the excellent food and service. The appetizers, from perfectly prepared Greek dips and spreads, Greek meatballs, spinach and cheese pies to the most outstanding grilled octopus we have ever had, anywhere, are delicious. The Greek salad is so fresh and well seasoned and prepared that we must order it for the table along with the other yummy appetizers. The entrees, from Moussaka to grilled shrimp, to lamb chops to grilled filet to chicken are fantastic. Our favorite are the fish specials ( the striped bass is outstanding, moist and fresh, fresh fresh). As if the scrumptious food wasn't enough, the lovely bucolic dining room and exceptional waitstaff ( Mac is an experienced, professional, warm and utterly delightful server) make Periyali truly deserving of a a very rare 5 stars! Periyali is exceptional.

Amazing meal and no nonsense service. Everything was fresh and well presented. The halibut and potatoes just incredible. Nice surprise was the Greek chardonnay, give it a try. Next time I'm back in the City, I'll be returning to Periyali.
