  • "If you have reservation for 2:00 pm and running a bit late they wouldn't let you in. Restaurant is overpriced."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The view was great, though the windows needed a cleaning. The food was just average..definitely better Korean food available in the neighborhood at better prices. Service was spotty..waited at least 25 minutes between courses. Not sure if there were kitchen timing problems the night we went. They also forgot to bring the rice (which is an additional fee)."

  • "We wanted to try something different for restaurant week and was pleasantly surprised. The food was very good,view from the 39th floor was gorgeous and the service was very attentive. Would go back"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "First of all, I love the penthouse and the scene of Manhattan looking from the window of the 39th floor. I ordered Cod for entrees which was tender sweet and juicy and my friend ordered Bulgogi which was BBQ beef with a lot of side veggies. Overall we like the dinner. I have to say it was worth a try if you really pay attention to the environment. People come in business casual or smart casual which adds to a higher level. However I felt the restaurant week dinner was elegant in portion but just tastes a little bit light to me, which can be a reference if you have also a heavier taste like me."

  • "Went for 30 year anniversary... arrived at 7pm... quickly seated... waitress very attentive but not overly considering the meat was cooked at our table... it was just right! The food was good... your not in Korea so don't expect it to be the same but all the side dishes were very good... look forward to going again 1 day... great people, service & good food hence the over all "very good" rating!"

  • "I think the place looked great and the views were fantastic. The staff was very good, very friendly and took time to take care of us. I had no issues with the food - it was well prepared and very pleasing to the pallet. One of the side garnishes was a little chewy but nothing terrible. It'a a great place near penn station and I would go there again."

  • "The space is gorgeous and the ambiance is to die for. However, it is really expensive ( two people $250 including a bottle of wine) I would not have minded the bill if the service was stellar. It took ten minutes after being seated to get water. The waitstaff seemed smug and unfriendly. It was quite a turnoff."

  • "Keep it up! so glad to have an upscale Korean place with great food to back it up. I have no complaints in all areas except it is a tad bit expensive. Think lunch should at least be a bit less than what they currently charge. but regardless, keep up the good work!"

  • "I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Very beautiful setting and amazing view. Food was really delicious! Usually Korean BBQ is more casual. Was nice to have it in a fancier setting."

  • "Wonderful views. Great atmosphere. Good food. Would definitely recommend."

  • "The food was terrific, as usual. I enjoyed the pork belly with sesame leaves and the smoky glass noodles. We appreciated that with the iPad the waiter could see whether a wine was out of stock without running back and forth to the cellar. Service was great, but when we asked the server about some buildings on the skyline, he confidently answered with information that was obviously wrong! We figured out our view anyway. We closed down the place (thought they were open until midnight!)--it's gorgeous any time of day!"

  • "The dinner menu is limited for a Korean restaurant, but it was good and the service was friendly. I would go again for the views we had during dinner."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The korean restaurant has nice view, but staff is not like human. I feel they are just have to work and take care customer, it is robotism. Why the bathroom was located that area? I can not find by myself and receptionist never show us where it is first, because they are busy to check and play with her smart phone."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "A great upscale Korean BBQ in the heart of K-Town. You really can't beat the view but you also pay the price as the tab adds up fast. The meats are excellent cooked at your table however we were not allowed to cook our own meat as we could at other restaurants. The waiter does all the cooking. Tasty drinks and great servie make this a great option for delicious Korean BBQ."

  • "We had a great night...... The food was perfect and the atmosphere and view was spectacular.... But the best part was the service. We had the same server (Carrie) twice this week. She was great..... Especially with our son with multiple food allergies. She made him feel so comfortable and safe that Gaonouri is now his and our favorite restaurant!!! Thank you guys again"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Food is great, view from the top of the building is amazing but the best part and the reason we are coming back Thursday is the amazing service. My son has severe food allergies and our server was perfect. She kept him safe while making him feel comfortable. Great night !!!!!!"

  • "I had a birthday dinner here for my girlfriend around 6pm on a Saturday in June. Before going I had made specific instructions to be seated at a window seat and that it was my gf birthday so something special should be prepared. Upon arrivingwe were greeted with kindness and shown to our seats by the window. Our waiter was attentive and the crowd at the time had not yet come in yet. So it was romantic as it was just the two of us. The food was good. As with a higher classed resturant the portions are smaller than usual. We ordered japchae, seafood stuffed tofu with greens, seafood pancake for entrees. The food was delicious. We then had the green tea ice cream ponzu parfait as the birthday dessert."

  • "The decor and the view were incredible. On top of that, the food is amazing! Portions are a little small for the price but the place is worth it."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "A great hidden restaurant inside the bank building. The food is top notch, presented in a modern, sophisticated way, but more or less keeping with the usual Korean staples. The restaurant has a very luxurious feel to it, that is not usually seen with restaurants at this price range. Service is world class. While the savory food was very good, I'm not qualified to critique Korean food. The patisserie was top notch though, obviously trained in the French fashion, and up to date with NYC local trends. Presentation was modern and beautiful, flavors delicate and not overbearing, all executed with very good technique. It was definitely a pleasant surprise to end the meal."

  • "I took my girlfriend here for her 22nd birthday. First time for myself as well. Overall great place, food is great and you have a beautiful scenic view of Manhattan. Restaurant is located in a sort of office building. But the view is beautiful. If you want to take your significant other to somewhere romantic with good food and a great view. Than you should visit GAONNURI."

  • "I was surfing Open Table for a restaraunt close to an evening event we were attending. And this place fit the bill. Booked a table for 6 @ 8:30 (we were 1/2hr late and had lost 2 people?!). We were seated at a 4 top by the floor-to- ceiling windows right away. The views of the city at night from almost anywhere in the restaurant are astounding! The service was great! Efficient, friendly...not too clingy. And the food?...one word...WOW! Delish! OK, that's 2 words!"

  • "We stayed at the Radisson Martiniqe. The Gaonnuri entrance is just opposite the hotel entrance but still was difficult to find: work going on around the building. Our family of 2 adults, 3 kids (10,12,13) had the best dining experience so far on our 15-day visit to the US! The waitress was so kind and knew exactly what to recommend. We shared 3 barbecue plates and that was just enough for the 5 of us. It was served with excellent fresh salad and Korean veggies so we only had to order rice to go with it. For dessert, the waitress recommended Snickers bar but the kids had seen the meringues being flambe'ed at the neighbouring table so they took the BFBA. However, they didn't like the taste that much. Views were so great, took lots of pics!"

  • "Very stylized Korean food. Generally delicious but can be over-salty at times. Nice cocktail menu. Views can be spectacular if right window table is secured."

  • "We had read reviews that the food was only ok but service and scenery couldn't be beat. Well we are definite foodies and we found the food to be quite good, we told them it was our anniversary and they sat us at the best table in the house. We had amazing views we were at the right corner round top and it was just gorgeous. We ordered the Calamari salad with some sort of spicy honey crust…amazingly good. All the food was exceptionally good. The people were friendly too. The only issue I really had was we were seated at 9:30 on a Friday night and within 20 mins of arriving and ordering our appetizers first we were told to order our dinner cause the kitchen was going to close. I found that odd. However, I would def. go again!"

  • "Some of the best Korean bbq I have ever had, in a beautiful scenic setting. The glass noodles are outstanding as is the bulgogi and rib eye. Be sure to sit at a bbq table to get the full experience. I am surprised i have not heard of this place before given the quality of the food, how large the space is and with such a stunning view of the Hudson and all of Manhattan. My only gripe was the service was not as attentive as it should have been. Will definitely be back for the food and ambience!"

  • "We wanted a more authentic Korean restaurant this is not it"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "The place was beautiful, and the view amazing. However, the restaurant doesn't serve many of the amenities that I've grown accustomed to before the dinner. Additionally, they don't serve bean paste (bean sauce) with the Galbi, another thing I like in other restaurants. On the other hand, the food was good. The black cod was amazing, and the sauce was to die for. The Galbi, curiously enough, wasn't nearly as good as Don's Bo Gam."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "First, there is a dress code, but they allowed us to stay by putting us away from other diners because we were in shorts. The portions are small, but two table barbeques and three rice were all we ordered for two adults and two tweens. I recommend the thinly sliced beef. The sauce that came with the special rice was outstanding, with a hint of garlic and ginger. I want the recipe to make it at home. "

  • "We have dined here on more than a few occasions but love to bring out of towners to show off the city lights of Manhattan and the fine asian dining available in this great city of ours. We have enjoyed each visit and all the guests we have brought here have been impressed by the service, the food, presentation and the view of the city. The service was efficient, friendly, professional and very attentive but not obtrusive. The manager went from table to table to greet guests and see if there was anything more that could be done to make our experience enjoyable. The food was the right temperature. Everything tasted wonderful! The desserts were to die for and looked like a work of art. It was a wonderful evening. Keep up the good work!"

  • "The atmosphere is so nice. The lighting is just right and the tables are spaced well. There are sweeping views of the city. They honored our request for window table, which made me very happy! The wait staff is very attentive and seems to know right when to come over and refill your water, bring you a fork, etc. They work as a team. They give you plenty of food items to try, i.e. tasty kimshi, before your food even arrives. My sister and I had bibimbap in the extra hot bowl (watch out!) and it was very tasty and fresh. My mom had the barbecue chicken. She wanted to drink the sauce after she was finished but refrained since it was a nice restaurant. Overall, we were very pleased! "
