Delicious! Great choices of unique Korean food, soups, salads, noodle dishes. Perfect for vegetarian and meat indulgers. Also nice teas, cocktails, and deserts, especially good is the chocolate cake. It is consistent an dependable to get a good meal.
Wonderful as always
I love this place. I’m a foodie so that’s a main concern.
The food was amazing. I cannot recommend it enough! Also great service and really nice atmosphere!
Top Restaurant. Gerne wieder!
Everything was great - except don't go on a very cold night - they don't have great wether proofing on front door or bathrooms - very chilly
I love great food and this was delicious. The service was fast and accurate. Each dish was flavorful and filling without leaving me bloated. Saki options were varied and tasty.
Delighted to have stumbled on this charming, quiet, moderately priced little place with absolutely delicious Korean food. We will definitely be back -- a real gem!
This is one of my favorite restaurants to visit in NY! The service is personal, the setting is intimate and cozy, and the food as DELISH! If downtown, be sure to make a reservation and visit. It is a tiny place so be comfortable rubbing elbows with the locals while you enjoy your sizzling Bibimbap!
Delicious food and nice atmosphere. This might be my new favorite Korean restaurant.
Staff very nice and efficient and the menu is varied and interesting. Always like going to Kori.
Really nice servers. Attentive and knowledgeable. Always like going here.
Love this place. Excellent food. Reasonable price. Contemporary Korean food.
I just really liked this spot. We live in the city and eat out a couple of times a week. This was simple, nice atmosphere, great food and service. We opted to eat at the bar which was fun. Would be good also for a group.
Loved this restaurant. Service was great, server was helpful when asked questions about different dishes. Food was excellent! I recommend this place to people who enjoy Korean food.
Outstanding food and service, we also really appreciated the our server's recommendations. The pancakes, seaweed salad, and bibimbap were amazing. I will be back!
Loved the Japchae - not a great dessert menu though!
Everything was good, but we are new to the cuisine and perhaps we're still adjusting. This was our second time at Kori; we tried another Korean restaurant in between and we liked the other one less. We're going to try again.
Was easy to get a last minute res on a Sat night. Nice mixed crows (ties and tees).
Easy to talk at our table.
Very Good classic Korean!!
Great food, great service! Unfortunately when me and my girlfriend wanted the Jasmine Soju, and she had been talking it up and made me excited to try it, it couldn't be made because the bartender wasn't there which bummed us out since it seemed like it would have been a great experience. Now I know this isn't the restaurant's fault but I had reserved a seat for her birthday and was thinking of a low-light romantic spot for us to eat and talk but then a family of like 4 kids came in screaming and yelling and it killed the mood for us.. which was unfortunate. Had it not been for those two things it would have been a perfect date for us. I definitely think the Jasmine Soju and the soju menu should be available during all times and not just "when the bartender is there", otherwise it's probably best not to offer it in the first place.
This place is fantastic. It's not cramped together, the time to wait for food is minimal, the atmosphere is very pleasant, and the food was delicious. The presentation was also very nice.
The bathrooms are really dark though, or at least seemed to be considering the entire lower half of it has black tiles with a black sink and black toilet. I felt like I needed a flash light at that point.
Other than that, this is a really nice restaurant. And $5 beer, which is awesome too.
I was happily surprised by Kori.
It's a small place with a small staff. The bartender didn't show up until after 6PM. That was shocking. The food was delicious and plentiful. Beautiful presentation. My only complaint was that my drink ($12) spilled on the table and on my lap. Not really sure how that happened. But the staff quickly helped me clean up the mess and then asked me if I wanted another. Which of course I did. I was surprised that they charged me for it.
It's been my experience that if you spill a cocktail, it will be replaced - at no cost. Clearly not something I go around doing, but it does happen.
I wasn't going to argue. After all, it was my fault, but it seemed odd. I would go back again - after 6:30PM (Bartender), and I would be more careful where I place my cocktail.
My go to place for amazing Bim bim bap! Very flavorful and generous portion!
The staff was wonderful! Thanks so much for the quiet table and gluten free food.
The restaurant is incredibly beautiful and wasn't crowded when I was there, we had bulgogi and chicken bibimbap and they were very good, I was glad the spicy sauce came apart so you can make it how you like.
The service was just perfect.
Komapsunmida for the good surprise!
Very good, very tasty food, but especially good and tasty on a cold, nasty night! The menu has a number of 'hot pot' choices, one of which is tastier than the next. I haven't tried them all yet, but intend to. They bring spice on the side and know exactly how much to add according to your taste. It's small and cosy, with a relaxed atmosphere. Music not too loud. A real neighborhood 'gem'.
Been here for several years. Casual and serve meal fast. Nice small Korean restaurant
Decent food, the lychee martini was pretty weak, took a little bit to get seated even with a reservation. Good value for money, might dine again if I need a place last minute I can probably get into on a Friday night.
Freshly cooked, spicy, depth of flavour, generous servings, friendly staff. What more could one want?
Finally, our first foray into Korean food and we were pleased. We began with wine and a lychee martini, the former okay, the latter good but too sweet. Two appetizers: the shrimp bomb and the fried octopus, both good and one main: the salmon bibimbap, not so good: salmon must have been precooked, too dry and very little of it. Everything was spicy, which we liked. We would try again.
Found restaurant thru Open Table, but will definitely return! Delicious creative food, excellent value, and lovely staff made for a very pleasant dinner
It was my first Korean food experience. Bulgogi was more than delicious. I would like to go and eat it again. Service was excellent.
Excellent service and superb food! The food was interesting, delicious and far prices.
Kori is my favorite Korean restaurant in NYC by a wide margin.
polished and professional- their food is precisely prepared, off a well controlled menu; Its delicate and delicious, but not pretentious.
Their Eel Bap is the best available in the city - I crave it at least once a week. The mushroom bibimbap is spectacular.
The restaurant isnt huge, so its always an intimate dining experience, quiet.
Their staff is respectful and attentive, but not annoyingly happy or hovering.
I dont seek or enjoy hip-loud-trendy-rude, nor spend my capital on them, so Kori is everything i want a restaurant to be.
Food is always great, but the services is very aggressive and detracts from the experience. My friend and I were asked no less than 4 times if we wanted to order drinks. We asked each one of those times to be left to look over the menu.
The waitress also tried to clear our dessert before we were even finished and when she packaged the leftover food, it was done so hastily that it leaked everywhere and I just had to toss it.
Interesting meal in a nice space with a pleasant staff.
Amazing, delicious food.
This is my go to Ramen place - every time I go to New York, I visit Kori. Without fail.
I think that's enough said - considering that in New York you never run out of good options.
The kori sashimi bibimbap with brown rice was a great twist on a classic Korean dish and the kimchi neon, although small, was very good as well. Both those dishes were delicious and our only regret was the bulgogi stew, which we found was not the best.
Had reservations for 3 ppl at 8.45pm. We left when the table wasn't ready by 9.25pm. Huge disappointment.
