    Yesterday, four of us had an excellent light lunch at Korali, sharing meze. I only wish we had had more time and appetite to sample the main dishes as well. Everything we had was good: the taramosalata, the cheese cigars (with their drizzle of honey), the Korali chips (thin and crisp), the spanakopita (nice balance between the cheese and spinach), the octopus (tender and tasty), the Greek salad. (my personal preference would be for more olives and feta, but otherwise it was just right). Although 93rd and Third is far from my usual Manhattan 'haunting grounds' it may be worth a special trip another time to try other items on the menu. As an afficionado of Greek food, I know how very difficult it is to find a good Greek taverna, so based on this experience I would highly recommend Korali. The environment is charming, by the way. (There were few customers at lunch, being summer, so the noise was minimal. One of our group lives in the area and said it is much livelier at night, and noisier. )

    Beautifully prepared delicious Greek Cuisine. The Bronzino was prepared perfectly. Very nice vegetarian Mousaka. Shrimp & Scallop kabob could have been cooked a bit longer and be seasoned more. The restaurant was not that busy, but servers were off. We asked for pita bread 3x. We finally got it when we had finished eating, but that too was delicious, it was prepared with a mix of oil and oregano. We ate outdoors.

    Korali has become our "go-to" Greek restaurant in Manhattan. We love the entire menu, and the staff is outstanding. Last night we had salads, and one of us had octopus on top of the salad - just great food, and great value too. And the Negronis are out of this world! We will be coming back, and hope others try this wonderful place.

    Food and service were quite good. Ordered lamb chops medium well and they came out medium rare, but were tasty. Overall, a nice spot, but feel there prices are a bit exorbitant given the caliber of the restaurant.

    The room, service, wine and food were all wonderful. We sat upstairs looking over the restaurant which was lovely and cozy. Korali has a vibrant yet relaxed feel to it. It's like stepping into Greece. We ordered the Spanakopita which tasted great but was a bit undercooked. The phyllo was a bit doughy. We sent it back to be cooked more, however it came back pretty much the same. My friend had the Shrimp Santorini and I had the Lamp Kebab, both were great! We ended with the Baklavas with ice cream. The Baklavas was good however the ice cream was too rich for me. Others' may like like. There's so much on the menu to choose from so it's definitely worth another visit!

    Had a fabulous meal with my adult children. Zucchini chips are a must have. As is the grilled octopus and meatball appetizers. Lamb chops and swordfish kabob were quite good, too. Wonderful atmosphere … like escaping to Greece for a few hours!

    Nice cozy spot on the UES. Excellent food, wether it's fish, meat or veg. Apps were delicious, Korali chips and Calamari. Shrimp Santorini and Shrimp and Scallops Kebab were the entree's, along with a nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Baklava and Nutella mouse and coffee finished it off. We'll be back again soon. Highly recommended.

    The food had a bland taste, fish was fresh and great but something was lacking....pita bread tasted old and was heated, calamari was okay but very little sauce is served with it, steak is excellent and perfectly done, scallops were small and not jumbo size for the price you pay (only 4 served) and ambiance was okay, it was slow- but service was excellent.
