Great experience. Unfortunately the waiter was very busy with too many tables to serve so service was slow. The waiter did his best and we truly felt bad for him.
Food was great and servers very friendly but both servers and kitchen were a bit overwhelmed
It is one of our favorites in the neighborhood, been going for several years and even through the pandemic. Staff is amazing, food is wonderful and consistently so. Get a straight up martini with a lemon twist the best in NYC (no joke).
We ate here for the first time yesterday evening and wasn’t disappointed! Food was great and service attentive. We sat outside but the inside of the restaurant was very nice. Will definitely come back!
Very Reliable For Good Food and Service. We Enjoyed an Excellent Vegetarian Moussaka and Grilled Salmon Dinner. Excellent Martinis Too. Friendly and Efficient Staff.
The hosts could not have been more welcoming, the staff was great, and the food was excellent - highly recommend.
Everything was delicious and the service was great. I’m glad you survived and I hope you thrive
Quality and presentation of food was terrific, as well as the service. I had the lamb souvlaki, cooked to perfection. My wife shared Branzino with one of our friends, but, instead of getting one portion to share, our server apparently misunderstood and brought two portions in one serving, thus charging us $80 instead of the $40 we expected. I didn't say anything once I realized what happened since it was so good and the entire dish was finished, but you might be careful when ordering! Otherwise, great neighborhood restaurant, probably the best overall in the area!
Great food and atmosphere
Having dined here many time I was really disappointed with the service. We sat for 20 mins before the waiter took our order. The food was great.
We waited 15 minutes to find the waiter to ask for our check, and then waited another 15 mins before going inside to bring the credit card inside ourselves.
Must have been an off night.
Amazing food with great service and atmosphere
Nice outdoor space.
Delicious food, fresh fish this restaurant does not disappoint!
Delicious authentic Greek food. The spreads, calamari, lamb shops, Greek chicken soup…perfect. Great service and staff!
Food was way above average. Outdoor dining was excellent despite some rain. Nice service. A place to come back to.
Great neighborhood gem
Amazing from start to finish. I said it before but I'll say it again.... BEST RESTAURANT ON THE UES!!!! Best Greek food, made and served with love, in NY!!!!
Beautiful restaurant, good service, best calamari I've ever had. I thought the lamb was pretty good but not amazing, my husband loved the seafood pasta. Will go back again!
There should have been another server covering our station
Excellent food; friendly, accommodating service.
Delicious food, great service and lively atmosphere. A neighborhood gem. On the expensive side.
Very good small plates of Greek food. Excellent wine list. Good value.
Anniversary dinner. We ate in acquit area in the rear
Made a big deal of seating us indoors even though place was half empty..even as we were leaving. Over priced and mediocre food
Good Greek food with great service. Not our first time and will not be last
The service, food and atmosphere were wonderful!
I would definitely return to this restaurant!
We had a memorable outdoor dining meal with Korali, for our final "last dinner" with our son before he goes off to his freshman year of university in NYC. A very nice way to end our full-time-together life with our son.
We always enjoy the welcoming happy ambience of Korali. Reliable good food, great service. This is a favorite place to bring our guests.
Always wonderful! From the fresh tomatoes in the salad to the octopus, fresh fish and gigandes beans, Korali never disappoints!
food is consistently quite good good outdoor seating
service is also gracious and attentive
We always enjoy the grilled fish and Greek wines at Korali.
Good food good value
Korali is fairly pricey for a neighborhood restaurant in the East 90s and the food was ok, not great. The chicken kebob, which should have been moist, tender and flavorful was dry and did not taste as though it had been marinated. Also, a little weird that they charged $1.00 for 'extra pita.' We didn't ask for extra, we just asked for pita. I'd rather they tacked another dollar onto an entree and include the pita.
The nutella mousse, while not really mousse consistency, was delicious.
If you like fish this is the place in the UES. Really enjoyed the oysters, branzino, and salmon.
Great Food. Great Atmosphere. Very friendly. We all felt right at home. Did I say the food was GREAT? Don’t miss it!😎
Great service & food!
The food at Korali is excellent, we loved the spreads and souvlakis we ordered. Although the wine list is short, we found a bottle we liked. Service wasn't perfect; with waitstaff handling customers inside and out, it sometimes took a while to get someone's attention. But, we weren't in a rush, so that was OK. I've been to Korali before, I will definitely go back again.
Great staff - excellent food - really appreciated that they let us take our time unhurried. It was perfect weather and a perfect evening.
The food was fine, if a tad overpriced, and our waitress was basically AWOL the whole evening. We had a 730pm curtain, and weren't able to order the dish we wanted because she rarely stopped our table, and when she did she told us she couldn't ensure our fish entree would arrive on time because the kitchen was backed up. I think they need to figure out the staffing situation, because the waitress seemed to be covering a lot of tables, not appropriate for a resto at these price points.
