    The place is high end and decent. Great place to have any type of celebration like today’s Father’s Day, or just have a great Korean meal. Meat has to be cooked by yourselves but it was very quick and easy. We tried the combination for … More 4 person “Kore Experience” and ordered other variety of meat as well as appetizers such as chicken, pork and duck. The meat is more than enough for all of us. My favorite is bulgogi pork so I have to try their spicy pork as another added order of meat and it was delicious. Will definitely be back.

    It was Super fun to try something new and to have Korean BBQ available in Sarasota, FL. We tried the $75 tasting menu for 2. It was a lot of food. Once we got the hang of the stovetop table and timer working correctly for the meats all … More was good and tasty. Our waiter was very nice and extremely attentive and patient with us. I loved the pickled onion and pickled cucumbers on the free accompaniments. And I ordered extra red sauce because that was my favorite. We both ordered a side of rice but could’ve just made do with one order. We asked a lot of questions about what our neighbors were eating and drinking and took our dessert to go. I will surely be back and Next time I’ll order off of the menu and probably sit in the bar area or outside because the place was a bit noisy.

    Decided to stop in and have some cocktails. The place is very nice inside and smells amazing. We didn't order food here tonight but the menu looks delicious as well as the appetizers that those around us ordered so we will be back … More to try it.My only suggestion is the bartending staff be more engaging and welcoming as they are the first ones their patrons see.

It … More was really good. 100% recommend.My only suggestion is the dessert in these combination packages should be a Korean dessert .

    Great, fun, unique, and tasteful dining experience! Read the website info first so you know you can or have to cook your own food, which is great! We had the combo for 2 with all the meats, the dumpling app, rice, and the Kobe! It was … More all very delicious! The decor was really nice and atmosphere, and it wasn't loud like many other places. Will be back for a special occasion or date night.The only minor thing I didn't care for was the fact they "advertise" a no tip dining experience . However, at the end the server mentioned that cash tips are allowed and greatly appreciated. Kind of makes one feel "guilty" if you don't. I assume the tip is built into the pricing of the meals and then paid out to the servers. Just curious if the owner and management are aware the server is saying this?

    We had amazing experience at Kore! The restaurant is beautifully designed and offers a very welcoming atmosphere. The staff was outstanding at every turn and making sure we were having a great experience. They helped explain the different … More dishes, sauces, and pairing certain items with each other. The food was some of the best we have had in a long time and such a fun and unique experience being able to grill right at your table. This is our new favorite restaurant! We can not wait to go back.
