Great food, service, and ambience. The tables are kind of close together like most places in NYC but overall I like eating here. Never had a bad meal here.

Our three-course lunch was delicious and well-priced. The wine selection by the glass was varied with numerous good choices. The food was well-prepared, the wait staff attentive and the decor soothing, we lacked for nothing. We had a lovely afternoon

The food is really fabulous here. Had the branzino and potatoes and romaine salad and raw oysters. Can't fault the food or service and ambience is great, especially for the UES. Only quibble are prices which are a little high. So $16 for a side salad and $35 for just fish (with no sides).

Always a delicious dinner at Korali. It’s one of the only places in the city that serves bronzino that is wild , not farmed. Excellent Horiatiki salad !

Korali is a favorite of ours and we always eat there whenever we visit New York since it opened on the UES a few years ago. The food is fantastic and the waiters and hostess are very friendly and welcoming! It gets really busy on the weekends so reservations are a must.

Wonderful staff, perfect table on the second floor for five. Food is exquisite and the service is attentive, swift and very courteous. We go there at least once a month and have always been pleased. The ambience is relaxing.

Great place, the ambiance and service was excellent and exactly what my wife and I were looking for. Friendly staff and very attentive. We sat up on the second floor and it was perfect, not very loud and spacious.

OMG. What to say? This was beyond an amazing experience in every way. I had to add people to the reservation at the last minute and they were very accommodating despite being busy. It was a big birthday for me and they put us in the nice window table. The waiter was very friendly and helped us make good food choices. Everything we ate was phenomenal! The wine was great. They treated me like I’d been a regular since they’d opened for business. They made my birthday very special and I am very grateful. I can’t afford to eat out often but when I can I will make my way to Korali! ♥️

Went here to celebrate my mom's birthday with my family and had a wonderful experience. We decided to not order dessert, and the wait staff ended up bringing us a beautiful and delicious assortment of Mediterranean desserts with a candle in it. It was such a kind gesture that truly made our night! All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals as well!

Sunday evening dinner was DELICIOUS. Nice portions, very flavorful, happy staff. Eating at the bar is an option we enjoy. The Dorado with Grilled Vegetables was Great. The Vegetarian Moussaka was Great. My Espresso Martini was Great.

The fish is outstanding! The appetizers are full of wonderful choices including spreads with pita, korali chips with tzaziki and enormous salads. The Greek fries are delicious as well. Our meals are always wonderful at Korali.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening out with friends; from the warm and obliging service to the delicious food: lamb shank, seafood over pasta, sole and salmon. We never felt rushed and were well taken care of. We’ve been there before and will be back.

Usually I find the food at Korali to be delicious but this time it was just mediocre. My horiatiki salad didn’t taste very fresh and the dips were just ok. Service wasn’t great this time either.
