Love this place! First rateLove this place! First rate service and food was exquisite.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for lunch with a KoreanWent for lunch with a Korean friend who ordered, so don't really know exactly what I ate. Beef marinated in something, could be moister; pork belly dish was v. good, glass noodles were delicious. Overall, very tasty, lovely, patient service, nice, upscale contemporary decor. The bbq was not on offer at lunch, so would be interested in trying out dinner.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food combined withExcellent food combined with an outstanding friendliness of staff3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways ExceptionalThis was my second time at the restaurant and everything was exceptional yet again. The first was just my fiance and I - this time we brought some friends. The Wagyu filet mignon is in my opinion the best in the city. The Korean sides are always new and fresh, the appetizers delectable and the dessert - which we had for the first time - was superb! It was a cinnamon pancake of sorts w/berries and ice cream and mochi on the side. Yum! Would go back again and again.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMStaff courteously called toStaff courteously called to notify us of the kitchen closing when I modified the reservation when running late. Bernard was very patient in explaining, and re-explaining at times, the various menu items. Food was delicious!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was awesome and soThe food was awesome and so was the service. I had an urban daddy perk and the first course was sushi (my boyfriend loved it) but i cOuld not eat it because I'm pregnant so the waiter for me something else. The main course was delicious and the waiter explained everything.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Korean BBQ In TownI had an Urban Daddy coupon for Kristalbelli. It included a bottle of soji and a wagyu beef tasting menu. My fiance and I started at the bar where we ordered some fabulous wine from their notable list and a special tuna roll. Delicious. Then we went downstairs for the UD menu which included an appetizer (crispy chicken and rice cakes) which was divine. We then had the included Wagyu strip steak, wagyu chuck tail, and wagyu filet mignon grilled on a crystal plate over a flame in the center of a buddha belly in the middle of our table. It came with several Korean sides and was absolutely the best steak I've had in the city - and I've been to many of the greats (Del Friscos, Ben & Jacks, Old Homestead, etc.). We will definitely go back!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, and great service!Good food, and great service! Overall, satisfied :)3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMElegant Korean BBQ off Fifth AvenueThis restaurant was reccomended to me by a Korean friend,Won Jo and Kristalbelli were her two picks.We thought we would go to WonJo but when we got there the line was out the door.Luckily I had made a back up reservation at Krista, so we ran up the block.
The hostess was lovely, so polite,the restaurant was beautiful and very very clean elegant and modern with out being cold.
I thought the place was really well designed, I loved our banquette and the unique glass grill in the center of the table.
Our server was a delight and so helpful,kind and handsome.My favorite dishes were the seafood pancakes and the whole NY Strip. Outstanding side dishes,the BimBamBop with meat was terrific. This place was great but the bar drinks were bad.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find! Will Go Back!Two of us were there for lunch. Their bento boxes were great. Generous portions even for lunch. Marinated grilled short rib was delicious: well balanced taste. They even served pickled thinly sliced radish and some salads so we could make wraps with the rib meat. Soft tofu soup had soft tofu and broth was flavourful. The wait staff was very accommodating. I'll go back with friends & colleagues for dinner next time for sure.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
