Simply, nothing was acceptable. The reservations are not part of Open Table. They are part of Yelp! They send annoying texts an text promotions without permission. The facility was sub par. The acoustics were so bad that we had to shout at each other just to be heard. There are booths, but they change for fine dining. Now, if you... More

We ordered the salmon with penne pasta and the butternut squash tortellini. The kids menu had a good selection and the pasta was made in house. If we lived in the area we would go here often,...

Decided to try a new dinner place before catching a Synectic Theatre show, and this seemed like it might be good. Wrong assumption! We had reservations, and as soon as we arrived, we were seated against a six foot screen that we soon saw was the divider for the seating of a tourist group of 50-70 middle school age students...

This was my second visit, but my first review. I have to say my overall experience was good, and thought the food was fantastic, but the poor service overshadowed it. The food came out hot, and the flavours of everything was amazing, and everything that the group had was rated as spectacular. With that said, things came out slow and... More

Visited Kora for lunch with some colleagues. Very nice restaurant. Nice modern interior. Loved the menu. The food was excellent and the service spectacular. For lunch, Kora offers a couple of prix fix options. These are very good values, IF you're hungry. Otherwise, you just might want to stick to your choice of entrée.

Can't remember when I've had worse service. Waiter was rude, very unhelpful, didn't know the menu and rang up the wrong prices for drinks. Food is meh.

Had lunch here twice so far, 1st experience was great, both the meals and services. 2nd experience was mediocre, both the meals and services. The ambiance is pleasant. Will try again as the meals on 1st visit were great.
