    This was my third or fourth visit. Once again food and service were perfect. I love the room. This is one of my favorite special occasion restaurants in NYC. And they have very respectable wine list for those who appreciate wine.

    Everything was amazing! This was one of the best dining experiences I've had, and I've dined at all of the 3-Michelin-star restaurants (Jungsik deserves a third star!). We enjoyed the tasting menu, and every course was memorable. The service was perfect as well (and I have annoyingly high standards for service). I can't wait to return and have already recommended Jungsik to others. (Note: The Royal Bibimbap is paradise in a bowl.)

    I visited some of the 3 and 2 stars michelin restaurants in NY and I like Jungsik the best. You have a choice of tasting menu or you use the al la carte menu and make your own 3, 4 or 5 courses. As I do not eat a lot, I found completing a full tasting menu to be a real challenge (meaning a waste). At Jungsik, when you order a dish, you can also specify whether you want the regular or small portion. The service is terrific. They are all very attentive to our needs. The sommelier introduced us to different wines at our price range. Great recommendations. As for the food, they are all very good. That night, we tried the octopus, the oyster, sea urchin rice, royal bibimap rice, crispy snapper, and wagyu beef steak. By the time we were done, we shared a dessert. Just enough food for us for the evening. I will definitely go back again.

    My girlfriend and I ate here on a weekday night. I requested a corner booth when I made the reservation so we could sit next to each other and they honored it. We did the tasting menu and ordered a half bottle of red wine, as requested by the waiter: he (and the rest of the staff as well) answered all of our questions about the food and restaurant extremely knowledgeably. The food was delicious: my favorite was the octopus and the steak and hers was the fish and the creme brulee. Overall, a fantastically delicious 3 hour experience. For a romantic dinner on a special occassion, I can't find any aspect to fault Jungsik. I'd definitely embark on their journey again!

    We have been many times to Jungsik and we have never been disappointed. Great service, delicious food, Korean inspired with the addition of a modern Western presentation and ingredients, and an outstanding list of wine by the glass made this another memorable evening. The quality of this place is hard to beat, one of the best places for great food in New York. We will certainly come back.

    some of the tasting menu dishes were really good, some less. overall i missed the wow - factor and the service was odd- polite but just not super on the point and a bit too casual. I did seem like they were making an effort though, so its not like they had a bad attitude. the place and decor were nice and on the quiet side where you can have a conversation and relax.

    Dined on 10/18/2014
    Every bite was a culinary treat. The big/small portion options were a bit confusing, but if you order an appetizer, small rice, and two small entrees (I had the crispy red snapper and gabli) you will feel full. I would recommend trying two small entrees instead of one big entree to give you more food to taste. The mushroom appetizer was flavor filled, and the pork in the bossam rice was delicious. My entire meal was filled with unique, complex flavors that contrasted well. Also, recommended Bordeaux wine paired nicely with the food.

    ...like this. Quality ingredients. Quality techniques and service. Just hands down great. If only all Korean restaurants in nyc can serve this level of cuisine. The only con was price. Usually Korean food historically was never expensive. To be catapulted to another price world is tough. To pay 95 bux for a truffle bibimbap I thought was excessive, especially when it just tasted like mushroom risotto. Still. It's an experience to at least try once.

    Dined on 10/7/2014
    My date and I tried the set menu $160 rather than a la carte ~$40/plate partly because it's difficult to know what to choose. Reviews rave about all the dishes. Having tried 9 courses and 3 extra desserts, I would say that their notably best dishes were the red snapper and the amuse bouche. A third of the other dishes were stronger in seasoning than you'd expect in fine dining; this is because they originate from Korean dishes where the strong sauces are absorbed by more protein than are given here. The bulgogi dish was especially salty because it's more of a soup than a marinate on pork. The galbi was too rare for my taste. The other true stand out was the superior service. You can definitely take a date here and have a wonderful time.

    flawlessly presented and interesting tastes. The chef is an artist and the dishes were unique. The bibimbap was basically mushroom risotto with Parmesan and truffles ...is this Korean? Only negative was that the staff were silent and subservient and not all that lively. They appear almost automatons and sucked the air from the room a bit. It was a very quiet and formal restaurant, and we are used to more casual relationship with staff, even in high end places.

    We enjoyed a very interesting dinner at Jungsik. The menu was very original -- a choice between a 9 course tasting menu (for $160 per person) or an a la carte menu selected from five different categories of food. While the restaurant is pricey, it was a treat to try some excellent Korean specialties in a very elegant atmosphere (formerly, the home of Chanterelle).

    Dinner was brilliant; wines were excellent; service was attentive; but unobtrusive. We came two days in a row and we were delighted each time. The first day we had the tasting menu and the second we chose from the a la carte menu - both splendid - food delicate and very pleasing. I would suggest sitting in the front room only because the back room can get noisy if you have the misfortune of sharing that room with loud diners.

    This was our first Michelin star restaurant experience. We were celebrating and wanted to do something special. I had a reservation for a Saturday night. It was pretty busy, but not overcrowded. The service was top notch. We weren't too hungry so we chose not to do the tasting menu, and instead, based on our server's recommendation, got four things each, all the smaller sized portions. Our favorites were the sea urchin, yellowtail, octopus, galbi, and the oysters. We also had the pineapple dessert and the green tea, which we both loved. At the end, they brought out a little bonsai tree box and inside there were a few little desserts (mini macarons, chocolates, and financiers). Overall, wonderful dining experience.

    Dishes to please the eye, tastebuds and mind...intelligently designed and executed with intense, rich flavors. Amazing wines by the glass and half bottle. Loved the seating area also that we were given, a rounded booth for two. Comfy and solved the perennial problem of one of us facing the wall. Standouts: Royal Bibimbop and Jungsik steak. Corn creme brulee amazing. We did the tasting menu, which is deceiving -- even though the artistically presented portions are small, the nine courses add up to quite a feast. Service was friendly and warm while still conveying the seriousness with which the chef and staff take the food.

    I enjoy finding and dining at great restaurants. JUNGSIK is a great restaurant! Their unbelievable creativity in flavor combinations, presentations and service make this one of the finest and most unique dining experiences I have ever had. This restaurant deserves far more fanfare than it currently receives. While Korean cuisine rarely comes to at least my mind, when thinking of extraordinary dining... JUNGSIK should should be put on everyone's lists of extraordinary places to dine.
