Korea Palace reviews from OpenTable diners
  • A nice Korean Restaurant
    LovetoEatVIP
    Dined on 8/12/2013
    Wanted to try a Korean restaurant outside of Koreatown. A pretty good choice. Much more sedated and quiet without all of the craziness that normal Korean restaurants in Koreatown are know for. The food was good and certainly done well enough for those who are just trying this type of cuisine for the first time. The overall experience was nice and I recommend it if you simply want a break of the hustle & bustle of Koreatown.

    Couldn't have started off more poorly, few of the wines on the wine list were available, tried to sell me $4.99 bottle of Yellowtail Shiraz for $37.00. Then some of the BBQ items were unavailable, overall poor experience and will not return.

    This place gives BBQ an Asian kick . I you like meat mixed with other items to enhance flavor . You want to try this. The service is attentive , knowledgable and for an early dinner you will have the place for a conversation and a nice meal. Enjoy.

    We went early and it was not crowded. Bright, clean and modern interior. Wait staff very friendly. Large comprehensive sushi and Korean menu. We had a 9yr old with us sowe ordered BBQ. So much fun to cook the meal at the table. And they kept refilling all the side dishes. It was yummy and we will go back.

    the food here is delicious. i will say we were a bit disappointed as we went there thinking it was both sushi and korean and when we got there the sushi bar was closed. the waiter said it is closed on saturday nights. this meant not only no sushi but no raw fish entrees with the korean food like the bimbops. a bit disappointing. having said this the food was tasty and the service was great.

    Meat and squid were both tough and chewy. We had to send back octopus as inedible. But favors were nicely intense and not overly hot.

    Dined on 6/25/2012
    I've been coming to Korea Palace for a few years now and their food is always outstanding. My go to is the bibimbop with chicken in the stone bowls and an order of california rolls. On a recent trip my mother ordered the whole fried flounder which she found delicious. I too thought it was tasty and I'm not a fish person whatsoever. The only complaint I have would be the service, which seemed to be lacking considering my most recent trip was on a Monday night and they were not busy. The food is delicious you just need to be able to put up with what can be spotty service.

    The kitchen closed too early and so none of us were able to order dessert. But everything else was great.

    not authentic korean - more for touritsts. the service here was not that great, the food was tasteless, the portions of meat are definitely no way near the cost. korea town is hands down better for korean food. would not recommend to anyone.

  • Delicious old school Korean
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 10/19/2011
    Delicious old school Korean in a quiet atmosphere that's intimate and corporate at the same time (must be the midtown location). Not fancy but decent wine list and terrific service - it's my go to Korean when I don't feel like trekking down to K Town and when I don't want to smell like a bbq joint. Food is great and I always come here to catch up with my good friends for serious eats and conversation.

  • Best Koren food in Manhattan
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 8/1/2011
    This is by far the best Koren food in Manhattan, and you don't have to go down to Korea town! The service is impeccable, they have Korean BBQ, the drinks are well-made, and you get TONS of free kimchi and other Korean delicacies. Try the boiled egg!

    I had better boneless kal-bi at other Korean restauants, and for $30, it should be better than theirs. It was bland, thin, and small portion.

    We went on Wednesday night and it was not too busy so the noise level was fine for our group of two couples. We had excellent service. We ordered 4 different kinds of meat and they grilled all of it for us. The ban chai was plentiful. As we were dining with a celiac in our party, the restaurant accommodated us quite well, offering special ban chai without soy sauce products.

    A great, authentic Korean restaurant in the heart of dreary, corporate midtown. A quiet place for good food and conversation if you want it - also a nice place to go to by yourself if you don't.
