When we finally got someone to
serve us he brought us tea that tasted like watered down coffee. Maybe a Korean tea I'm not aware of? The food was very good but that was only after we grabbed a server ( who wasn't suppose to be our server) to help us. Apparently our server went missing. We finally got to order when later out intended server asked us what wed like. To his surprise we had already ordered (poor communication). Was very surprised that they charged me 4 extra dollars to have the exact same meal heated. Not sure why a hot bowl costs 4.00 more. Restaurant had no ambiance at all. Not romantic in any way. More like a small college cafeteria. But the food was good."

I made dinner reservations a week
in advance. When my date and I arrive, the hostess fumbled through her computer trying to find me. It became very clear she could not find me & had to ask another host in Korean about what to do. I speak Korean, & she stated that I wasn't in there & that they are out of tables for two. He had us seated at a massive booth for an upwards of eight people. I figured it wouldn't be a major issue, and tried to brush it off. Then, we didn't get a drink order for 20 minutes. I had to wave down a server just to get helped. He was apologetic, but continued to only stop by our table with food or anything else we had requested in 30-45 minute increments. I ended up paying for food we never received. A bad experience."

Have traveled to South Korea many
times so I have tasted regional cuisine. Corea Kalbi provided the same friendly atmosphere with great service I have come to expect from my visits to Korean BBQ while in Asia. The food was fine, specifically the marinated short ribs and bulgogi, and the evening resulted in a good time with my friends."

This gem of a Korean restaurant is
serves great quality meat. It's a bit pricey compared to the others but it is well worth it in my opinion. The grills are thick cast iron versus thin tin and gives you a much more authentic experience. The kimchi and sides are great. The owner and the new manager are very nice. They want to make sure you are enjoying your experience. Nice steaks and a huge variety of good quality meat for the grill. You won't be disappointed!!"

We finally tried a Korean BBQ
restaurant and it was fun. Went for a late lunch. They weren't busy and the waitress helped us cook our food perfectly. It was delicious but a little expensive, especially for lunch. ($65 for 2 people, food only)"

We walked in and were barely
greeted. I think the hostess gave us a grunt as she rushed off with menus. I guess that was our cue to follow her. Before we could even say anything, she had bolted away. The many times she passed us, our excuse me, were ignored. We looked at the menu and for the all you can eat lunch, for $19, only five items. I don't think so. Waste of time and definitely would have been a waste of money. The service stunk and after being ignored again, we got up and left. Ended up at Gen Korean BBQ. Over 25 items for $15. And the atmosphere and service were 100% better."

Hostess barely spoke English..she
was not able to answer our questions properly. Steaks were all fatty and terrible quality. Noodles were awful! Definitely did not get our money's worth! Won't be back again!"

This place on the weekends is
empty which is good for me because I love to wind down on a Sunday. The food was great all you can eat BBQ the selection is good also. The staff very friendly the only thing is that they don’t understand English to well. I was trying to tell them they didn’t check me in on open table they couldn’t understand me. Plus I gave them my 20 dollar open table check and they didn’t know what to do with it. At the end I paid full price and they keep my 20 dollar check. Ha Ha Ha It’s funny because no matter what I did I still would of have to speak to open table about getting my 20 dollars or a check back. Don’t let this stop you from going because you will have a good time like I did. Live Love and eat peace J.L."

I love a BBQ in the table. It
allows you to cook your beef to the right degree of rare. Both the short ribs and the brisket were very good, with the right amount of fat and virtually no tough portions. The sides were pretty good although more spice was needed for the KimChee, a little too bland for my taste. I didn't have any room left to try the rib steak, perhaps next time, as this is definitely a Korean restaurant worthy of a return visit."
