Very good food, although the service was relatively slow at the end
Food and service were terrific as always.
The food and service are always excellent. You have to try to Octopus, it is amazing. This time we also had the scallop special and it was delicious as well. I can not say enough good things about Periyali. Just go try it, you will not be disappointed.
Restaurant beautifully decorated for the occasion
After 30 years, Periyali is still as good as it always has always been. After traveling to Greece it is clear that the food is authentic and delicious. You can't go wrong here.
Great long-time neighborhood stalwart that remains relevant by preparing and serving authentic and elegant upscale Greek fare with panache. Never disappoints.
It was very quiet at lunch and sitting in the back section of the restaurant, under the skylight was sublime.
As an Astoria native and half-Greek person, I was shocked to find Greek food this good in Manhattan. The salmon and spinach baked in phyllo dough was unreal. Great ambiance, great service, will return.
Never disappoints. Food and service are always spot on.
Our first try on this restaurant and its easy to locate. The food that they all serve taste good and the server Alex was very friendly. We’ll definitely recommend Periyali to all of my friends and family.
Salmon with spinach and “masa filo” is excellent!!!
The food was wonderful and the service was great. The lamb chops were amazing.
There are both more upscale and more low cost old school options, but, IMHO, this still offers a very good overall value proposition (food quality, fair though not cheap pricing, service, bar, ambience) for Greek food in Manhattan. Two other points about Periyali: the staff and service are great; and the menu is stronger on meat offerings than fin fish (unlike some other Greek places).
Service and atmosphere was excellent especially for a Friday night. I would suggest getting the regular menu and not Restaurant Week.
Glad we went for Restaurant week, as it is rather expensive. My friend and I enjoyed it very much. Only negative comments are I couldn’t see a wine list by the glass, so didn’t know what the cost of the glass of wine was and the octopus appetizer was quite small.
Always delicious! Good selection of Greek wines too!
Overall very good but not remarkable
Good food. Good service.
Horrible experience. Had to send back my salmon 4 times and the owner of the restaurant proceeded to yell at me instead of trying to get his kitchen to make the salmon as requested from the menu. They even left it on the bill! Will never return.
