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 !

Solid UES Greek that skews older but still has energy in the air.

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.

Generally excellent. Service was courteous and efficient. A couple of small mistakes were made in the order, but more than compensated for. We would return and will recommend to friends.

We came here to celebrate my son’s birthday. The atmosphere is nice-it feels like Greece in decor and music. Service was very good in that waiters were attentive but not intrusive. The manager was warm and friendly. I loved the grilled calamari and the Korali salad,too. The red snapper was excellent as was the chicken with lemon potatoes. However, my chicken souvlaki was a bit dry. The noise level initially was too much but when people left it became much better. A nice experience overall.

I LOVE Greek food and this was my first time at Korali. The menu had most of the traditional favorites although I was disappointed that they had removed the lamb moussaka and replaced it with a vegetarian version. Their prices are quite high for a casual neighborhood restaurant but the quality was there and the service was smooth.
