    Charming staff - family owned and run? The restaurant is on the dark side, but that's fine as the decor has a hip feel, and since there aren't a lot of tables, it feels very cozy. Our server was fantastic! So personable, helpful with menu questions and with a dietary restriction for someone in our party. We really enjoyed the personal touch. And everything was absolutely delicious! Two of our party had never had Korean food before, and they can't wait to go back!

    So glad we've discovered this place. Tribeca restaurants gave us so many disappointments lately, but this one is a gem. Great tasting Korian food (with the options to wonder in the modern and creative interpretations of the staple dishes), wonderful drinks, interesting and delicious desserts and very reasonable pricing. We had Srimp bomb(A+), Dolsot Bibimbap(A+), Japjae(A+) and Rice sticks with honey and GT Icecream for dessert (A++). The service was very friendly and efficient, and the ambiance (though on the dark side) but felt cozy and intimate with a nice soft music background. Definitely a place we'd want to return every time we are in the area.

    I found Kori Tribeca on a whim and was blown away by the quality of food and the perfect ambiance for what we were looking for. We had the noodles and dumplings to start. Then we ordered more dumplings. Great prices on alcohol and we were able to eat and talk with no disturbances. the staff was incredible and was able to meet all our accommodations. They even were able to break up the bill accordingly, which is a hard to find thing in NYC. Will definitely be back soon!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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'.

    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.
