Koral Bar & Kitchen
An excellent partner restaurantKoral displays a similar cuisine profile to that of Pearl's, which is appreciated because the food is terrific. Our waitperson was excellent and she was new to the restaurant but definitely on point. Our entrees were flavorful and portions just enough for one person, which is something we appreciate. The appetizer, entree, and cocktail were all winners. One must try the cocktail on the menu made with Jameson, sorry I can't remember the name but it was smooth and perfectly balanced. The June special to receive one entree for free of similar price was an extra touch to a wonderful meal.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a business lunchthe food was great, service was excellent and the atmosphere was great for a business luncheon as it wasn't too loud. Portions were moderate but the quality was great.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly surprised!We had a very large group of people with various food tastes...vegetarians, picky eaters, people who don't drink, etc. and Koral did a fantastic job accommodating EVERYONE. The food was excellent, the service was great and the bar did a very good job in delivering spot on cocktails.
Typically with large groups the service can be a little sketchy, but I have to say they were absolutely fantastic. Our server was very attentive, super friendly and very patient with everyone in our group. We will certainly be back for future group dinners.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHow to please all in a group.Koral, in Bellevue's Hyatt Regency, has guests chattering happily as they try the large selection of lunch fair offered by this restaurant. In spite of the quality of the food, the room was only half full when we were there . Koral is worth discovering.
The two negatives are 1. noise and 2. lack of color (ambience).5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome HalibutI was a little early for my reservation so I decided to sit at the bar. It was pretty nice. The food was great the drinks' we awesome but the decor was kind of bland. My seat was acceptable. I don't like being squished together with other parties' tables.
Overall it was great.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMClean, Friendly and Good Food!Food was excellent, our group had the Crab Cobb, Tuna Poke Salad and the Roasted Turkey Dip...they were excellent.
Very happy with the service and food. I will definitely go back!
Thanks!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGood to come back!Stayed away for a little while as was frustrated by a pretty important reservation mess up that they had but have been back a few times recently and glad I have. I like much better the seating set up now which is a bonus. Food remains great, especially the salmon special they are running! Service was good and it normally is. Not overbearing is the service and I appreciate that as I normally am having a meeting over lunch. The prices for downtown Bellevue are still incredible. Good food, good service, good location, good atmosphere at a crazy low price point is fantastic.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOur xperience was very good.Our xperience was very good. The food was tasty for a reaqsonable price. The servers were competent, but not excellent, and very friendly. They could use a bit more training. Our table was ready at the time of our reservation. Overall, a good experience and we will be back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMUnexpected Oasis in Bellevue CtrFour of us went for dinner after a movie at this unexpected treasure, just off the Hyatt lobby, across the street from the crazy busy Lincoln Square. What a wonderful gem with a great menu and every choice a home run. Enough small plates to make a tapas meal, but also entrees for those with bigger appetites. The waitstaff was attentive and had an eye for detail, wine list good and reasonably priced, fun specialty drinks. Definitely liked the unpretentious tone in the otherwise "over the top" downtown Bellevue core. Will go back for certain.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely place, great food andLovely place, great food and the Service was exceptional. Loved the decor, rustic and warm. The beet salad and the salmon were delicious and perfectly prepared. The ingredients were unusual and the flavors were well developed. I loved it.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat new addition to BellevueThis was our first experience at Koral and we found the menu quite diverse. The food itself was great, the cocktail menu had a nice unique mix, and the wine list was great as well. It was relatively quiet for a busy night, yet still with a fun amount of energy.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were very happy with theWe were very happy with the quality of the food. I think the atmosphere needs a little help and when I say that I mean the décor of the restaurant. The bar area is great.
Service was good and you can tell they all want it to succeed. The manager came over which was a nice treat. Lovely gentleman.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding - ShrimpFood was outstanding - Shrimp in Herbs; bibb salad with Champagne vinegarette; pineapple dessert. Food was excellent!!
The noise level from the Sports Bar area is extremely disturbing and that is why we will not be back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA great evening!We loved our food and the service was great. The only challenge we had was the window shades not working so sun in our eyes. Wine suggestions were wonderful for both my husband and I and it was fun to celebrate our son's 35th birthday there. I would definately go back.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMNot as good as on YelpIf you believe Yelp it may be the best spot in Bellevue. I have never found great, eclectic restaurants next to large chain hotels. It is a big venue, does not feel cozy. The menu is interesting enough (I love any place that sells marrow!) but lacks soul.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
