Pros: specialty cocktails, tea service, whole menu

Cons: none

Dined there twice. Yes, it's a little slow, esp on weekend. But it wasn't as bad as the previous posters suggested. The place does have a little relaxed vibe going on. And very romantic for dates. The entrees are great. It's not pretencious kind of food. We have fried chicken strip and meatloaf, and they're the best I've had in NYC. I think most who came here wanted to taste the food, and were not in a hurry to catch a movie or something. I don't know why, but the bar area is always packed. Maybe they are regulars who come here just to drink with the owner / host? Will definitely go back.

I love this restaurant. I have dined at Kurio, several times. The food is wonderful. Everything is made fresh daily. It has this downtown flare uptown. Check out the Green Bean Tempura and the Lamb Chops and do not forget to order the Truly Molten Chocolate Cake! Sometimes the food takes a little longer but it is well worth the wait. It is a great dining experience!

I couldn't believe what a horrible time we had. We sat down at 8:45, our order was taken at 9:20ish, and our appetizers didn't arrive until after 10. We asked why it was taking so long and the waiter showed us the fine print on the menu. Made from scratch - PUHLEEZ!!! Spare me! It would have taken me 3.5 minutes to make veal chops taste that bad. The only reason we got our appetizers when we did was because husband had threatened that we would leave. Needless to say, we left after our less than appetizing appetizers and cut our losses.

My girlfriend and I dined their this past Valentine's day and it was great!!!! I live in the neighborhood and had always wanted to dine their but I guess I needed a special occasion. Red roses were everywhere. We had a tasting -- 4 courses- she had the pheasant and I had the lamb chops. It was perfect. The dessert was a double chocolate cheesecake for two -- delicious. They even offered a wine pairing. The service was great, ambience fabulous and the food wonderful. We were quite impressed. It is about time the upper east side has a place like this -- a gem !

What a Find!...From the moment I saw the odd name in Zagats with a killer rating to the warm personal greeting of the hands on owner when I walked through the door with my date. The fare is simple but clearly fresh and intensely prepared. The dining room is warm and quaint with a strangely quiet energy. The waiter was knowledgable about the menu and spirits, and guided me to all the right items to order given my budget and occasion. The owner kept a vigilant eye on all the tables and made a point of checking in with each and every guest from start to finish. Hands on is the way to go! I definately reccomend Kurio to anyone who wants to impress a date and not break the house bank in the process. Whew! finally some warmth in the upper east side.

I have dined here several times and I disagree with the last two reviews. Yes, the food takes a little longer to prepare. But if you have dined there more than once, and not on a busy weekend night, then you would understand that everything is prepared from scratch and made fresh daily. I have never had a bad meal at Kurio. You have to try it to understand. It is a small and quaint spot that does not sit more than 30 people. Since the write up in Zagats it been hard to just walk in on weekends. There are always flowers and I am told by all of my dates that the woman's bathroom is fabulous. Take someone's word who has dined there several times. Kurio is a piece of downtown uptown. Just remember it is a place to dine -- so relax and enjoy!

Pros: great food, great ambienace, good service

The food is terrible, the service slower than molasses. The Zagat gives them 25 rating for food. It must be a type-o. This is one horrible restaurant, long on aspiration very low on delivery Don't waste your evening!

Pros: nothing

There is something terribly wrong with this restaurant!

I planned a holiday dinner at Kurio and we ended up waiting two hours for the appetizers.

The first bottle of red wine was served at a temperature of 75 degrees and after we complained, the second red was cooled in a bucket of ice water!!!

We waited one hour before even receiving the menus and the waitress/owner would get my attention by giving me a shove in the back from behind!!! This is no exaggeration!

This was a truly upsetting experience and I would advise EVERYONE to avoid this restaurant.

Kurio is a hip, unpretentious and delicious slice of downtown uptown. A striking, somewhat exotic, hostess/owner tends the bar and tables along with her capable and friendly mother; her fiance and father bless the kitchen. It's an arrangement as unlikely but synergistic as the flavors of the food. Terrific, even sophisticated, delivered by smooth, capable, amiable service. My wife and I both agreed: the pumpkin ravioli in a lemon creme sauce (an appetizer) was the best ravioli we had tasted in some time. My wife's swordfish was cooked perfectly, accompanied by a flavorful, though not overbearing sauce. The shrimp I had, over and surrounding a bed of white rice, was excellent. Delicate, flavorful, and again, merely complemented by its partner sauce. Unlikely flavors coming together effortlessly. A really nice experience all around. And who would've thunk - on East 92nd street??
