Our server was great! We had a large party, about 27 people and she did an outstanding job! Very attentive, patient and got our food out quickly! I think her name was Donessa S.

We arrived early for our reservation and the host allowed us to sit at one of the high-top bar tables to wait. It was quite a while before someone brought us drink menus and take our drink order, but once we were seated service was fast. Food was great and prices reasonable. The salume plate was excellent! We've eaten here several times, and food is always very good.

Service was mostly an afterthought. Food was good, not great. Reasonable work lunch spot.

Good place to grab dinner. Risotto was overly salty. Tiramisu was really good however and made up for the overly salty Risotto. Entrance/hostess stand reminds of a hotel check in desk. Overall an okay experience.

The food was very good but the service was disappointing! We waited for almost 10 mins for our waiter to even arrive at our table. When he approached us, he commented, "I'm here. I'm here!" He seemed frustrated with helping us the entire time. The food was brought out in three groups. As a table of 10, we realize the food would take longer but we did expect to eat together. What we had was delicious, but the service made for a frustrating night!

Restaurant staff seemed completely unable to deal with a crowd. Long waits to place an order, get table settings, get plates for bread, get water.

Food was completely ordinary. One party member was told that her choice was no longer available 15 minutes after our order went in. She selected a different item from the menu (after she requested a menu. Initially she was told to order something else off the top of her hear), and was given a third item that was never requested. When it arrived 10 minutes after the rest of the entrees and she informed the wait staff it wasn't what she ordered, the response was insistence that she had.

Kora sucks. Given the size of the space I'm very surprised it hasn't closed.

We were seated promptly and courteously. The waiter was polite and attentive. Pasta dishes seemed very small, but food was good

The food was adequate and our waitress was busy... probably too busy. The host was nice and seated us promptly. I'm glad I made advanced reservations because it did get busier.

This was my first time at Kora and sadly may have to be my last. The food was terrible. I got the pappardelle and it was watered down and pretty much inedible. I didn't complain because I was there with a business client, however, I won't be back. I should never have lunch at a restaurant and leave hungry.
