Excellent service, friendly, efficient, very good guidance on house specialties. Nice and quiet so we could talk at lunch. No rushing, would recommend Korali to anyone looking for an elegantly cheerful ambiance for a leisure or working lunch.

Excellent recommendations from our server, mezzes to main courses.
Highlights: calamari; mushrooms stuffed with crab; lamb chops.
Inviting reception upon entering, a friendly atmosphere all around.
The food was so similar in taste to what we eat in Greece.

This is a neighborhood gem, with wonderful innovative plates. The service is friendly, accommodating to questions, and not shy about suggesting "you might like". The bistro atmosphere is comfortable, the drinks are not anemic. A different take on tuna tartare, perfectly grilled portobello mushrooms, lamb shank and orzo in a sauce that was rich but not overwhelming.

Saturday nights are noisy and crowded (that is, tables close together with waiters rushing between them). The food is superb and the wait staff is really top-notch. We're looking forward to returning.

My wife got the lamb kabobs and they were tender and tasty... one of the best she’s ever had... As they say, you could cut them with a fork... Thought the overall price versus value was there. Not too expnsive for the value you receive. Would got back again l

This is my absolute FAVORITE Greek restaurant in all of NYC. We’ve been coming to Korali for a while now and every single time it’s just as good as the first. The service is impeccable and the food is always fresh. Recommend this place to everyone.

I have eaten at this restaurant at least 3 times before. This time, the food was tough and dry. You needed a sharp knife, which wasn't offered. There wasn't salt or pepper on the table. I felt that for a Saturday night, service was poor. I will never go back. I live on 55th and 1st and feel that the restaurants in this area don't serve us a if we are cattle, in a stockade.

there was a slight hiccup with another client who was screaming at her child who was screaming..I asked not to be seated near them not realizing that the mother was behind me...she took umbrage and packed her family up to leave-all credit to the staff, they diffused the situation and that client and her family stayed, dined downstairs while me and my party dined upstairs-happy! great staff, great camaraderie between the staff..

The food was alright, but the service was actually pretty bad. If the service had been better, I might not be as critical about the food. We had to flag our waiter down repeatedly, the entrees took a really long time to come out, and I often felt like an inconvenience to the waiter. Everyone seemed to know everyone so when the waiter had to work, it's like we were pulling him away from a conversation he would rather be having. I was really excited to try this place, but not sure if I'll go back.

Great Greek food in a festive atmosphere with a warm staff. Korali does many dishes well and has a pretty space appropriate for an adult night out. The staff is attentive and warm. Service is good but never rushed - which contributes to an overall relaxed vibe.

Very tasty fresh Greek food. Had the Branzino for two which was outstanding - sides were incredibly fresh and flavorful - grilled veggies and lemon potatoes. Had a dessert that I cannot spell or pronounce but was a warm custard in filo - otherworldly.

As usual the food was perfect. The only complaint was when we entered we were acknowledged but then another couple came in right after us and we were kind of pushed aside. With no "excuse me" from the guy seating everyone.
