I love this place. I’m a foodie so that’s a main concern.

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!

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 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.
