We had a dinner together with friends
Baked feta was liquids and not good - we sent back and got instead a very oily zucchini fries
The cooked grill had a lot of fries with burnt meat, the chicken was not chewable
Overall food was very poor will not go back to this place

I was very disappointed THIS time in service and salad and my companion's food. Dry chicken on a spit exchanged for a small piece of PALE cooked chicken with a dollop of mashed potatoes. My fish was fine but we couldn't dine together. Also always looking for the waitress. It was not a good experience and not worth the money.

Started with the zucchini & eggplant chips at the bar.
Octopus appetizer was on par.
Classic whole branzino was one of the best I’ve tasted.
All paired with an excellent Greek white wine.
Service was a bit slow.
Overall, if you are looking for god Greek cuisine, this is a keeper.

The food is good and the service even better. They made a mistake in our order, but made up for it by sending us free desserts. Can't ask for more.

We usually get grilled octopus and the slow cooked lamb shank. The grilled octopus is my staple here- it has almost set a standard for my palate. More restaurants should learn how to make good grilled octopus. The lamb shank is a huge piece- tender and juicy, is definitely larger than one main course meal size. We try different meze (feta cheese, hummus platter, etc.) each time and have always loved every thing that is served here. Considering the quality and quantity, the food is well worth the price.

The interior is pretty and the ambience is warm and unpretentious. The hosts welcome you warmly when you get in and thank you as warmly when you leave. This is a very nice touch. Service is great as well.

In nutshell- beautiful interior, great food and great service. Very welcoming hosts. No unnecessary frills. Great to have Korali in our neighborhood.

Not sure how much of the ‘decor’ was everyday vs. the holidays, but AWESOME either way! Food was also excellent, especially the fish, and good service. As a neighborhood restaurant, will definitely be back. Just maybe not too often, as prices a a bit high compared to the neighborhood.

We dine here often, but tonight we could only get a 5:30pm reservation despite reserving in advance. The restaurant was 1/3 full downstairs and empty upstairs. The host sat us upstairs alone by the room where they wash dishes. The ambiance was awful as I literally watched them washing dishes during dinner. The food has also dropped in quality while increasing in price.

My new favorite restaurant in my neighborhood. Food, service & decor was great. The lamb chops were amazing & came with the best potatoes. Loved the saganaki app & our dessert

I can’t wait to go back again.
