    This review is with all my heart... what food and the way they treat you is divine. Beautiful ambience, good collection of high quality Greek wine....and the food- please definitely get the lobster pasta...trust me, u won’t regrettttt. It is a-maziingggg. The lamb chops was great..the Greek salad is lip smacking

    Great place in midtown. The appetizers were really good, including the octopus and hummus. Seems to attract the business crowd since it's in midtown, but the ambiance is nice and modern. Mushroom risotto and lamb chops were tremendous. Lobster linguine dish was over seasoned. Overall, top notch place to have Greek food!

    Excellent service, ambiance etc for a Midtown lunch. Greek salad was delicious and fresh, including a tomato paste that added another dimension of flavor. Seafood Orzotto was less impressive - great variety of seafaring critters but overly buttery and not very flavorful. Would love to try their other dishes!

    Enjoyed this one! Atmosphere is nice, staff very attentive and professional, and food was excellent! The Octopus is a house specialty and was among the best I've had in the U.S. Salmon entree cooked to perfection, duck entree also perfectly prepared. Very enjoyable dining experience on all fronts!

    Nerai is just lovely. For breakfast, lunch or dinner - it's just a very solid spot that I've love ever since they opened a few years ago. The Greek yogurt is delicious. And the service is fantastic - both at the bar and the tables. They were always a non-tipping restaurant, and changed that recently, which doesn't make sense to me. Otherwise, nerai is a very solid option in midtown.

    Last evening, we joined another couple for dinner at Nerai (54th St. near Madison Ave.). It’s what I guess I’d call Nouvelle Greek, for lack of a better term. It’s a no-tipping restaurant (gratuities are built into the prices.) We started with wine and a shot of Old Rip Van Winkle bourbon at the bar, and then made our way into the elegantly attractive main dining room (there’s another room upstairs). It wasn’t very crowded for a Saturday evening – about half-full throughout the night -- but I think that’s likely a function of the midtown East neighborhood. I understand it’s jammed at lunch, with the business crowd. The Sommelier was excellent – he was very knowledgeable and quickly became attuned to our tastes. With dinner, we had a white: Hatzidakis Assyrtiko de Louros 2014 (which was unlike any other Greek wine I’d ever had, in terms of flavor, body, finesse, and price – more like a delicious white Burgundy), and an Italian red: Altare La Villa Langhe 2005. Service was top-notch throughout, expertly achieving that delicate balance between attentiveness and intrusiveness. For dinner, we started with: raw west coast oysters, hamachi crudo, tuna tartare, grilled octopus, and eggplant/zucchini chips. Given all of the starters, the four of us shared three mains: Lavraki (Greek fish beautifully grilled), rack of lamb, and duck moussaka, with sides: cauliflower, brussels sprouts, and zucchini tater tots. Portion sizes were modest, so we weren’t quite as piggish as the list of dishes might otherwise imply…. We were too full to order dessert, but once we’d ordered coffee, somehow some complimentary desserts appeared, so we struggled mightily and managed to consume them completely. OK, I guess we were at least a bit porcine….
