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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
