The service we received was
horrible from the minute we walked in the door. We had to wait 10 minutes before anyone even came over to the table to get drink orders. We had to ask for utensils and napkins from the cook after the food came because the waiter never brought any. The servers and others were rude throughout the meal. And the food was mediocre, and lukewarm."

Understand that it was Valentine's
Day, but our server took two smoke breaks, forgot to bring our wine, and eventually was replaced by someone from the managerial staff who saw us looking confused as to our server's whereabouts. Appetizers and desserts were delicious. My main dish was overcooked. Reallylike the look of the place, but not enough to go back on a regular basis. Will have to let the bad taste of this experience fade before I even consider going here again."

I was greeted after I approached
the counter. They had my reservations and I was seated immediately. It would have been nice, if the waiter would have worked with the same acumen. He showed up after a while and asked for drinks. I gave him a primary and secondary selection of beer. He brought a third which I had not ordered, but it was OK so I did not complain. Took a long time to get him back for my order. I had a BLT Pizza. It was good but delivered by a different person. I had to find the waiter to get the condiments for the pizza. When I had finished my first beer, he was no where to be seen. I started to rise when a waitress asked me the problem. I explained and she brought me a second beer. Food good, service poor!"

Went for valentines day. Got
denied table selection because of timing (?). So if I had come 5 mins later I'd be at a different table? Was told this by waiter and hostess. Next food was delivered that we didn't order. Then the price fixe we ordered came with sparkling rose. Waiter brought check and I asked for champagne flutes. Waiter came back without champagne asking for my credit card, again I asked for the sparkling wine. His response "oh did you want that?" -- do people normally want what they pay for ?! Screaming kids topped off the romantic atmosphere."

We dined at Kora for the first
time on valentines day. Now, it seems they had a fuller house than normal, so I'm hoping that our experience isn't indicative of how their service always is (because they were seemingly busier that usual). Nevertheless, it was not great. We had a reservation and still had to wait 15 minutes for out table. Our server was clearly stressed out and kept forgetting to bring us things. We has to wait about 15 minutes at our table until there were glasses available for water, other drinks, etc. We asked for more bread and never got it. We ordered wine and literally didn't get it until about 10 minutes after our entrees arrived(and that was after we both has first courses as well). Food was great, but not the service."

The food is great !. The beet
salad is fantastic. The pasta is excellent and everything is very fresh and prepared well."

This restaurant in Crystal Dr. is
a good place to take a date, or to join a group. The food, while slightly on the pricey side, is certainly good. The noise level is a bit high but certainly tolerable."

My second dinner was even better
than my first. I'll definitely be back. Perfect accompanent to a Synetic performance(around the corner ). Order the duck breast!"

When entering, we were greeted
warmly. Menu was extensive with many choices for individual tastes. Stuffed eggplant appetizer was excellent, not to mention the desserts were both visually appealing but tasted just as incredible. Met chef-owner who was most gracious and really seemed eager to please!"

Lovely meal for work team. Quiet
spot required for discussions so table was located at back of restaurant which was perfect."
Dined on 1/13/2014
Excellent restaurant! Started the
meal with Calamari, it was a good portion properly cooked and served with two dips, visually appealing. Ordered 10 in pepperoni pizza, it was prepared properly and tasted very good. The service was attentive and responsive to each request for assistance. The sound level was good and there was a big screen TV that was available to those that want to see it but not obtrusive."

The food here is fantastic and
their wine list is good for afterhours and dinner, but the service is always a bit on the slow side. Since I also work in Crystal City I know I can't go here for a quick work lunch, but will definitely go back for happy hour and dinner when I have more time."
Dined on 11/22/2013
The food was good with a lot of
small plate variety and entrée options. The service was good as well. The atmosphere was the least pleasing part of the experience; the décor is bland and not to my taste. All in all, it was an enjoyable evening and I would recommend it, but not a place I would go for anything beyond the food."
Dined on 11/8/2013
I've never experienced such poor
service and customer relations before. The hostess left us standing at the host stand for twenty mintues after we checked in after saying that we would be seated right away. Never came over to explain the delay or offer any apologies. After checking in twice more, she finally sat us. Our waiter completely ignored us after our drink order an another member of our party had to physically get up from the table and track him down. After he brought our food we were ignored again except for him to bring over the check which he abruptly dropped on the table in a huff and ran off again to presumably goof off with the rest of the wait staff we saw just standing around. Food = Fair. Will not return..."

They have a "kids eat free" deal
on Saturday night, which seems unusual to me. The place was full of kids whose parents seemed oblivious to the noise they were making. The staff seemed not to be bothered but I was amazed and disappointed by the number of unruly kids and checked out parents. The food is great--starting with the warm focaccia. The half-portion pastas allow you to try more than one. (Beware--I think the online menu says there is an option for 3 small portions for a single price, but that is not on the actual menu.)"

I recently dined at Kora because I
was staying in Crystal City for a wedding. I found this restaurant on OpenTable and was pleasantly surprised on the knowledgeable waitstaff and attentiveness. The server was very nice and available. The menu was creative and delicious. I ordered the calamari, wine, and NY strip steak fettucine. I really enjoyed the flavors of the mushrooms and sauce. My mom got the steak and mashed potatoes and said they were deliciously flavored. We ended with the nutella/walnut pizza. Very creative and tasty. Would definitely come back!"

Service was great, food was tasty,
Dined on 10/4/2013
Went here for a quick dinner, but
dinner took almost an hour when all we had were 2 pastas and 2 sodas. Once we finished eating we sat for about 15 minutes waiting for the server to come. The food is alright but the service is so slow it almost isn't worth it."

Service was slow though there were
just about 20 people in the restaurant and 20 staff members. We were seated promptly orders taken, but when our food arrived, my salmon was slightly undercooked, and my husband's mac and cheese side was lukewarm and lacked flavor. His chicken was overcooked and baked in bread which likely sat under the heat lamp for a while, as the breaded outside was so hard he had trouble cutting and eating it. The food itself was fairly tasty, but a bit over priced for what you get. This place was really empty tonight while Jaleo next door was packed to the rim....That's really sad b/c Kora had great potential & a great chef, but when the chef is away the folks there just didn't seem to care much for food presentation."

Beer List was excellent, food was
fresh and tasty. Service was very good as well. Will definitely come back for future meals."

Great option for convenience--my
office is across the street--but probably not a "destination." My friend's dinner was pretty good. My pasta was way overlooked but tasty. The waiter was nice, friendly, attentive and knowledgable about the menu. Including pricing with his bit about menu was a little awkward. Also, he forgot to come back with the leftovers. Overall, it was a good, not great."

I like Kora's and it is a very
good place to catch a bite alone or with a small group. On this visit I just ordered the incorrect thing. I wanted a basic chicken sandwich, but what I got was an interpretation of one, which include different sauces and bread. I was not impressed and probably should have gone to a Pub or Chic Fil A."

Kora's was a big disappointment
for food and service. I've eaten there many times. It will be awhile before I go back."

We wished good friends bon voyage
and celebrated a birthday. Enzo takes EXCELLENT care of us, from the white table cloth and chilled prosecco to the candle in the birthday cake, he works to make sure our glasses are filled and our expectations are met. The spinach tortelloni is fantastic. The birthday boy loves the pan fried chicken and mac and cheese. Thank you for making our evening out so special."

Very good food, especially pasta
dishes. There was a poker game going on next to our table which was a bit noisy. Other than that nice visit with the family."

We celebrated our Wedding
Anniversary at Kora's. We were seated promptly, and didn't have to wait long for our appetizers and then main course to arrive. Kora's has a lot of ambience and the food was delicious. The other reason we love this restaurant is because it's one of the few nice restaurants that, we can go that's not ethnic and has plenty of vegetarian options. A big challenge believe it or not with most of the new trendy restaurants especially in say Clarendon, Old Town Alexandria or the Penn Quarter area of DC for instance. The only thing was that we felt we were being rushed through our meal. There is a fine balance when it comes to service - attentive, but not to the point of being disruptive."

Excellent food, very reasonably
priced for lunch, service is quick - perfect for taking a business associate for lunch."
Dined on 4/18/2013
Our wine was very good but
everything else was only just good. The food was alright, nothing to write home about. I had the chicken parmesan and it was bland. One of my dining partners had the salmon pasta and she did enjoyed it."
Dined on 4/18/2013
Disappointing. Expected more from
Morou Outtara after having enjoyed the short-lived Farrah Olivia (probably too upscale industrial for the Alexandria crowd at the time). Food was fine, but nothing outstanding; presentation was tired. Quirky waitstaff was entertaining but not the most professional. Nice change from hotel restaurants and chains for those staying in Crystal City."
Dined on 4/5/2013
Their $18 power lunch is very
good, especially if you're starving. The place only has a few people during lunch time, so the waiters were attentive and the food was served relatively quickly. It's a nice casual place to get lunch at, but probably not for celebrating special occasions."
