Having been to Greece, we feel that this is American Greek. The food is fine, but it doesn't have that freshness, and the olive oil tastes oily. Disappointing fishy shrimp. They do have a nice garden in the back, so go and have some wine...More

This evening we returned to Periyali, which is one of our favorite haunts. It was quite hopping, which is always great to see. We started with a traditional saganaki flaming cheese appetizer and Greek salad. Both my wife and daughter had the grilled skate wing,...More
