We had such a nice night and the food was AMAZING–so fresh and authentic-tasting. The ambience was lovely and the service/drinks were impeccable. We'll definitely be back and recommending to others.

So glad to see this wonderful restaurant making it during these trying times. Keep up the great work! We will be back strong this summer! The swordfish kabob is wonderful and I walk far for a great glass of Assyrtiko!

This is a place my girlfriend and I go to often. And even while sitting inside which is a nice change with the colder temperatures the service was poor and the food mediocre at best and not hot whatsoever. In terms of the service we had to ask the wisdom if there were specials, which there ended up to be which the customer should never have to ask for. Furthermore we had to ask how the fish was even prepare. He showed little enthusiasm, did not ask how our appetizer was or entree and was quite short with us. We like to keep going to our favorite spots in hopes that our little part will keep them in business but this was a serious disappointment at a place we have never had a bad meal or service.

Very good food, though it has become notably overpriced for the neighborhood since their NY TIME review! Service good if a little pushy at times. Nice precautions taken for the outdoor seating. Still a very good 'event" destination.

We love this restaurant. we often meet our friends there for a social evening with delicious food. The food is delicious and always consistently so. The service is very friendly and good. They are trying to work with outside dining. It is difficult to have a quiet dinner with trucks going by, but they try to insulate their diners.

I really enjoyed my dinner at Korali. I had the arugula and beet salad, the tsipoura with mashed potatoes, and the nutella mousse for dessert. Everything was delicious and the service was great. They have plenty of outdoor tables both on the sidewalk and in the street. A great option on the UES.

Really good and fresh Greek food with a variety of choices. Hard to talk about noise level and ambience as it is currently outside only. Service was friendly, prompt and safe. Food was absolutely delicious and good sized portions.

The food is really fabulous here. Had the branzino and potatoes and romaine salad and raw oysters. Can't fault the food or service and ambience is great, especially for the UES. Only quibble are prices which are a little high. So $16 for a side salad and $35 for just fish (with no sides).
