I haven't been here in a few months and really was wowed this time around. It seems like they have made some changes to the staff and have added some delicious things to the menu. I give this place 5 stars.. the food, the service, and the atmosphere were all absolutely wonderful.

Went there for dinner with a friend. This restaurant has everything one can ask for. Great food, very good service and nice intimate atmosphere.

My boyfriend took me here last saturday night for a much needed date night after a long week of work and it was just what I was looking for - intimate atmosphere, unbelievable lamb chops and a great wine pairing. Couldn't have been more perfect!

My parents were visiting from out of town last week so I took them to Persephone as it is one of the few greek restaurants we have not tried in New York. It was restaurant week so I had told them not to expect the biggest portions or widely varied menu but was pleasantly surprised to find that the special price fix menu offered a wide selection and the servings were generous and cooked delightfully. Unfortunately the great food was soured by a bizarre waitress. I wont go into details as we all have bad days at the office and they don't deserve to be picked apart play by play but she was absolutely atrocious. Her coup de grace, however, was when she stormed towards us as we were leaving shouting "are you sure?" after we left her a 10% tip for her ineptitude. Then announced that "it is customary to leave a 20% tip at all times" and asked us "did we not like the food or something?" When we politely reminded her that 20% is not guaranteed at all times and went through the list of things she had missed, overlooked or just forgot about she told us to get out, much to the amusement of our party and those in the restaurant. Needless to say we wont be returning but if you do go and your waitress replies "some kind of fish mush" when you happen to ask which dips are served as part of the Pikilia appetizer then she means taramasalata.

Persephone is Greek, but it's not one of those grilled-fish-by-the-pound places. The menu is varied and the dishes well cooked, and the atmosphere and noise level are a blessing. If you want to go out for a convivial evening of talk and good food and wine, this is your place. Excellent grilled sardines, tender octopus and beautifully cooked lamb and chicken.

the place is small but great and the service has some quirks to be worked out, but it is also a great new restaurant. The food is great. The salad and calamari appetizers are delicious. The chicken and scallop main courses were outstanding, especially the scallops. The desserts were fine, but nothing special. The $25 lunch prix fixe is a great value. One problem is the difference in portion sizes. I got a heaping plate of chicken and couscous, but my friend only got two small scallops with his dish.
