We dined here with a Road Scholar program and were given three menu options from which I chose the Broccoli Fettucine Alfredo with Chicken. The chicken was smoked and the dish was very good and a very large serving. I was unable to eat it all as I was looking forward to dessert which was their Flourless Chocolate Cake. This... More

We had a large group dinner and we all received good service and enjoyed our meals. The menu offered an interesting selection. I had the pasta with salmon and it was delicious. I would definitely eat here again.

Dinner for two. Sat in middle just past bar. Restaurant was as cold as outside. Front doors hang open and it's a wind tunnel when customers come and go. Even the host concurred -- he couldn't wait to go home. We had to leave jackets on. Noise due to cavernous space and zero sound dampening made conversation difficult. Beer selection... More

My primary reason for eating here was that the venue served as the District 27 Toastmasters Area 13 contest site. The Area 13 Director had chosen 3 dishes that she would pay for her contest staff, and would provide the nonalcoholic beverage for the meal and contest. The meal I chose was Chicken-Broccoli-Fettucine Alfredo. The dish was well-made without an... More

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

My husband and I took our kid (10&13) here for dinner tonight. The service and atmosphere was excellent. The food however, was fantastic! 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.
