This is a place my girlfriend and I go to often. And even while sitting inside which is a nice change with the colder temperatures the service was poor and the food mediocre at best and not hot whatsoever. In terms of the service we had to ask the wisdom if there were specials, which there ended up to be which the customer should never have to ask for. Furthermore we had to ask how the fish was even prepare. He showed little enthusiasm, did not ask how our appetizer was or entree and was quite short with us. We like to keep going to our favorite spots in hopes that our little part will keep them in business but this was a serious disappointment at a place we have never had a bad meal or service.

Very good food, though it has become notably overpriced for the neighborhood since their NY TIME review! Service good if a little pushy at times. Nice precautions taken for the outdoor seating. Still a very good 'event" destination.

We opted to eat outside, despite the lovely decor indoors. The staff were all super-helpful and friendly, and we enjoyed a very good meal!

Love the Manager of restaurant and the food but the waiter was not friendly, seemed annoyed and marred the overall positive experience.

We love this restaurant. we often meet our friends there for a social evening with delicious food. The food is delicious and always consistently so. The service is very friendly and good. They are trying to work with outside dining. It is difficult to have a quiet dinner with trucks going by, but they try to insulate their diners.

Lovely outdoor space and ambiance, this restaurant is doing a great job making the most of on-street dining. Felt like being in Athens. Food was delicious. Thank you!

I really enjoyed my dinner at Korali. I had the arugula and beet salad, the tsipoura with mashed potatoes, and the nutella mousse for dessert. Everything was delicious and the service was great. They have plenty of outdoor tables both on the sidewalk and in the street. A great option on the UES.

Really good and fresh Greek food with a variety of choices. Hard to talk about noise level and ambience as it is currently outside only. Service was friendly, prompt and safe. Food was absolutely delicious and good sized portions.

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.
