We have been to this restaurant numerous times since it opened years ago. When first opened the food was good but the service was always horribly slow. In the past few years we realized that the food is not good anymore and the service went from bad to worse. The Chicken Cora which has been one of their signature dishes... More

Nice atmosphere and a variety of food choices. I like the food and the portion size but if you are in a hurry go elsewhere unless you eat at the bar. Waitresses are either slow or not enough of them. More than one occasion I walked out because of slow service.

We stopped in here to try out the food and have a few drinks. Overall, the food was pretty good. The mojito was watered down. I just thought the wait staff was not so much friendly. Maybe this place is known just to locals but I didn't want to stick around for a second round of drinks.

We arrived and were asked if we had reservations. We announced that we did not but none the less were given a table. We were two adults and two 12 year old girls. we all ordered burgers on what appeared to be a not too busy night. It was a good 30 minutes before our burgers were served. The burgers... More

The food is good, the service is very slow (waited for almost an hour just to get our salad) and the ambiance has something to be desired. If there was just more wait staff, the experience might have been better. If you are not in a hurry and have great patience the meal is worth waiting for, but it is... More

I wish I could recommend this restaurant. I really do. Unfortunately, even though the food was outstanding, the service is just really bad. We came back several times (because of the food), hoping for better service, but it never got better. Extremely slow, and almost rude waitresses. You get the feeling like you are inconveniencing them when you ask for... More

Food, good! Atmosphere, good! Service, pretty good. Cleanliness, better than some other bar/restaurants I've been to, but there's always room for improvement, right!? The bar decor is colorful and bright but not overwhelming. The food is good... so good that when we first found this place, we returned 4 more times that week. We wanted to try so much on... More

An extensive menu, but expensive for the quality and tastiness of the food you get. Every time we've been there, the service has not been good. If you're into the bar crowd, though, they do a great business that way.

My husband and I were staying in Hawley at the Ledges Hotel with our 6 month old daughter and since the hotel restaurant wasn't open on Monday's, we needed an alternative. Cora's was close and the menu sounded decent, so we gave it a try. I had the BBQ burger and it was just so so. The BBQ sauce and... More

Passing by and remembering what a fun dinner we had two years ago we decided to revisit and it was better than we remembered. Monday night is "Wings and Yuengs" night so we ordered four kinds of chicken wings which was finger lickin' good, French fries and onion rings topped off with a pint of beer. Great choices. There are... More
