YOU NEED TO FIX MS "IT MY VENUE" 's ATTITUDE – I have never been so humiliated in my life from the rudest and crudest Bar Maid who first gives me the high sign to proceed upstairs and then chases after me with two others and proceeds to threaten me demanding a "ticket" ... I was actually meeting up with people who were already sitting at a table watching the show.
If this idiot who later claimed "this is my venue" is the owner, this place will be gone very soon. If she's an employee, she should be fired immediately. If she's just promoting there, the owners would be wise to keep her far away. Even one of the others who seemed to be taking orders from her apologized to me when she was out of earshot. While I was waiting for my GF who had been sitting at the table to come join me outside - not wnting her to spend a nickel in this place - the Bar Maid continued her rant threatneing to call the police no less. I've been living in Soho for almost 30 years and seen plces come and go. I'm a native NYer and I can tell the difference between "attitude" and outrageous unacceptable behavior. If it wasn't as bad as I'm describing it here, I wouldn't waste my time warning anyone who has any idea to check out the Burlesque on Friday nights, what and who they may encounter. Hopefully, someone will read this and "Ms Its My Venue" ends up where she belongs ...

RUDE , OBNOXIOUS OWNER – i never write reviews , but this time i was compelled to. i was there on my birthday and the owner was sooooo rude and arrogant. someone made a nice comment to her , she snapped back in a nasty nasty way. then after he said "no need to be rude about it" , she kept going screaming, "i own this block , you F%$^&kin idiot". honestly , even if you do own the block (which you don't) who cares? if your going to be in the bar business you need to be nice to people. we were about to drop an easy $700 in bottle service , until that happened. don't be fooled by the cheesy burlesque show (which lasted 3 minutes) drinks are over priced and under poured. skip this place.
Don't bother – If you want to go see some crappy show or band and have the management promote beer specials that don't apply to you and horrible service than this is for you.
Bud Lights for 3 dollars but every other beer they charge 8 bucks. No sense what so ever.....
And to top it off the place is dirty.
bridge and tunnel – If you are over the age of 25, i would not recommend this place... seems a bit seedy, and full of jerseyites...
Fantastic Show, Questionable service. – I had friends visiting from out of town last weekend and decided to take them to Corio for "This Is Burlesque". The show was amazing, The entire cast is highly entertaining, all in all I would have to say this is hands down the best burlesque show in town. There were two buzz kills for me though, which is why I only gave 4 stars. The girl who was bar-tending downstairs before the show was terrible, serving us seemed to pain her. She acted like us being at the bar and wanting drinks was a big inconvenience. The second downer was that literally seconds after the show ended we were getting pushed out the door. Seriously, I was still chewing my desert and the lights came on full blast.
The show is great, the girls are all gorgeous and the host is out of control. I will say that these service issues did leave a bad taste in my mouth, especially since is not a cheap place.
Great show and awsome food:) – Went to Corio on Saturday night for the show and Dinner to celebrate my sisters birthday. The bartender Roland was great, very personable Upstairs was Hot, show & food were AWESOME! Service was great too If you are looking for something differnet to do on your Saturday night I highly recomend DInner & the Show.
Make reservations and get there early place fills up fast.
Best Party I've Been to in NYC in a long time.. – A friend of mine recommended Corio to me last week and said that it was a great party so I decided to check it out for myself.. We went last night and I had the best time. The space is really cool. It has an intimate lounge vibe but acts as a club.. the dj was sick and there were beautiful girls all over. It's best to get table service cause the place fills up quickly so we did. There's even burlesque acts throughout the nite. All in all it was a great night.. I couldn't believe that spot was hidden in SOHO and I didn't know about it before. Great atmosphere.. We'll be back..
Disrespectful General Manager - – I stopped by Corio one Saturday afternoon to inquire about planning an event. The general manager was upstairs in the lounge as I looked around the place. I asked her some questions and told her about my event. She was disrespectful and extremely condescending. My questions were simple and straightforward, but she could not undertand why I asked for prices for tickets, bottle service etc. She explained to us that even though we would be in a mixed gender group of about 20 people, for every 4 men, we would need to buy at least one bottle. When I questioned her as to why, she became hostile and insulted me by commenting that I don't "get out much". Needless to say I did not book my party there. If my 2 minutes of conversation with her were so unpleasant I can only imagine how unprofessional she would be once she actually gets the deposit. The owner should seriously reconsider her employment as she can only push potential customers away with her abrasive and disrespectful manners.
Eat Before you Go – I was looking forward to my girlfriends birthday celebration at Corio's restaurant. It was to be a night with drinks, entertainment, and food in one location, which sounds good, right? Unfortunately for my friends and I, Corio missed the mark. No bull-eyes for them. The burlesque show was pretty good, the performers had good routines and great bodies, but I found the MC opening monologue lacked energy and didn't immediately connect with the audience. As the night went on she did get better. I didn't have any drinks so I can't comment on that, but I did eat there and when I say I was extremely disappointed, I'm being nice. We would have been better off eating at another restaurant and only paying $40 for the show. There's a saying that to many cooks spoil the broth, I think when restaurants don't have a single focus, something gets lost in the mix. In Corio's case it's the food. The food and show cost over $100 a person when you add the tax. It wasn't money well spent as far as I'm concerned. If you want to attend a entertaining burlesque show, it will be worth your while, but make sure you eat and drink before you get there, otherwise you will be filled with regret .
The entertainers put on a good show, too bad the cook can't follow suite. When I remarked to the Manager that my guestes did not enjoy the food, she was not accomadating. Be warned: Corio has a good show - but eat a burger before you go!
Amazing show! Outstanding Food! WE HAD A BLAST! – My sister's birthday was coming up and I wanted to think of something different and special to do and a friend reccomended Corio. Let me just say that my sister said it was her BEST birthday to date. The show was absolutely hilarious! Murray Hill doesnt miss a beat.. we literally laughed nonstop. The girls in the show are HOT! LOVED ANGIE POTANI!!! I was also pleasantly surprised that the food was sooo good. My waitress was adorable and the service rocked.. loved the Zorita! We'll be back for our next big event!!! Thanks Corio for a memorable night! Pasties or Bust! HAha!!
