"We ate at Kora last Friday night and had a terrific experience. The food, drinks, jazz music and overall ambience were just superb. We will definitely return."

"Amazing food, pleasant service. One of us had the salmon, one had the NY Strip Steak and one had pasta. Nice variety of craft cocktails, relaxed (but good) pace of service. The only distraction was the poker game that was going on in the first half of the room. I will definitely go back, but not on poker night. It got a little loud."

"We had a great dinner, but it is noisy for anyone who has hearing issues. We were there at 6:15 and a jazz band was setting up which would make it even more noisy."

"While the food may have been really good, the following was my experience:
6:30 reservations for a table for 8 were made WEEKS in advance. That day we added 2 more people.
7:00 PM we were sat at our table.
7:19 pm our waitress finally showed up so we gave our entire order so we didn't have to wait longer to go through this process.
7:22 pm 2 baskets of bread were dropped off by a busser
7:25 pm had to scavenge napkins from other tables around us because there were none at our table
7:35 pm we received water for the first time.
7:45 our drinks arrived. 2 of the orders were incorrect, even though they were ordered while being pointed at on the menu
7:49 correct wines were delivered
7:58 entrees delivered. Adults in first wave, kids later.
No appetizers were received.
8:05 Appetizers were attempted to be delivered even though we already asked two separate people to cancel them since were were already eating our entrees
The one person who ordered a 3 course prix fixe dinner did finally get their salad, though.
When the check came, I had to circle two of the apps that we never had and ask them to be removed. When the check came back, I had to ask for another appetizer item to be removed that hadn't been on the first check
We gave 2 credit cards to split the bill, wrote the amount and name from each credit card on the receipt and the waitress came back to say that they couldn't split the check that way, that we had to divide all the items up by which was to be charged on which card.
Worst service ever. NO Manager backup. Barely any other backup and during the time we were actually sat, the restaurant had gotten LESS busy.
No excuse for this kind of service.

"Most everyone within 60 miles of DC knows that Crystal City turns into a ghost town after around 8pm weekdays and weekends. Yet the restaurants are still open. I was at Kora with friends after a conference in a nearby event. I have been there before during busy times and it was great. But this time it was a Thursday at 8pm and it was like a completely different wait staff. The fellow that waited the table came once to deliver the menus, messed up the soda orders, came back for the order, and then never reappeared until we flagged down the fellow with the cane that got someone to come refill our sodas. I am glad this wasn't a business dinner trying to win a customer. But it didn't speak well for me suggesting it with peer executives.
As for the meal, most of it was done right. But the steak on salad was overdone.
I am just amazed at the difference between a Thursday evening and a Friday night out."

"Service during lunch hour was lackluster. Server had no personality and we were seated for a while before anyone greeted us or took our beverage order...by which time we had already decided what we wanted to order and had been chatting for quite a bit. Restaurant is open and spacious, and the purple interior scheme is calming. Once it commenced, the service was reliable - food came out in a reasonable period of time and drinks were refilled proactively."

"We had a nice dinner on the outdoor patio made nicer by the ability to order from the $7 bar menu. The outdoor patio is a bit noisy with people and cars but overall a nice time"

"Great balance of original and comfort for travellers and locals. Kids had pizza and spaghetti, both were excellent. Chicken parmasean was excellent as well. Vibrant scene, not too fancy and not too laid back. Solid performer for the restaurants of crystal city."

"The food was pretty good. The noodles were very tender and light, but the sauce was lackluster on my Lasagna. Service was petty good. I would put it as good as any Italian chain restaurant.
the huge drawback on my visit was the poker tournament going in just through a curtain behind me. The clicking of chips, etc. destroyed the ambiance of the place and was a constant irritant. At times the noise through the curtain was so loud I couldn't talk at a normal tone with my party."

"The a/c was not workig in the restaurant and when I asked about it they acted like I was telling them something new, only later to find the host desk had a fan to keep them a little more comfortalbe. Thankfully the food and service made up for this. I decided to just eat outside because the tempatures were about the same but at least there was a breeze outside. The food potions were very large and the food was really good. Inside, the furniture looked worn and needs to be replaced. Could be a really nice spot but they need to invest a little in the upkeep."
