    Well worth venturing off the beaten path for this authentic outpost of Korean cuisine in all its varieties. I can't wait to go back to try different dishes.

    We've been going to this restaurant for years. The food comes out quick, the BBQ is delicious! Just beware that most servers don't speak English much - but that's how you know, the food is authentic and good!

    This place was really wonderful. The sides were all extremely tasty and the Korean BBQ meats that we ordered (bulgogi and pork belly) were great, along with the black bean noodles and hot stone bowl with seafood. The stingray wasnt our favorite, it was a little tough in places, but the flavor was great. We ate to our hearts content and it came out to about $20 a person which is completely reasonable for korean BBQ. I would recommend this place to friends.

    We've been here for many years for their Korean BBQ. The grill is in the table and they bring coal out whenever you order their BBQ. We love everything at this restaurant. Korean pancakes, sweat and sour pork, sushi is delicious too. The waitress barely speaks English, but their service is fast and food is delicious.

    If you go to Seorabol, you must try the BBQ. The in-table charcoal grills are fun to use and the meat is top quality. The 10 banchan dishes provided -- those little dishes of mostly picked vegetable are a great accompaniment.

    The Korean BBQ here was really delicious and included tons of sides. We used the coupon for free Korean pizza/Seafood pancake which was really delicious and like nothing I've had before. The waiters were very helpful and attentive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to try a new place.

  • My new Korean bbq spot

    Kim's has always been our go-to spot for Korean bbq for us in the past, but we've noticed that their quality and service started to slip in the past few visit. So we decided to try this place. The banchan is excellent. They give us 2 huge grilled mackerel pike as one of the side dishes too, which wowed us, and their caramelized potatoes and spicy tofu were also excellent. We had Galbi and spicy marinated pork and both were very tender and yummy. They also had EXCELLENT service, wait staff came to help us just when we needed them. They use charcol, but their ventilation system is very good, so I didn't smell like a big ol' campfire when i left. Already daydreaming about going back!

    While there weren't many reviews (yet) on Opentable, I read about Seorabol on Yelp. Friends from Korea were visiting, so off we went, with high hopes, but reasonable expectations. They were ecstatic! I'm a total novice with this cuisine, so it was great going to Seorabol with Koreans, who knew what to order (and how to order!) We had Korean barbeque (boneless shortribs), seafood pancake, a marvelous cold soup with the longest buckwheat noodles I've ever seen, some smoked fish, and massive amounts of side dishes. Just great. I cannot wait to return!

    Having come here for over 5 years we are amazed how they keep improving. The food and bbq are great and now the service is getting better. With Chris marketing through open table (along with other places) we've seen bigger crowds and now there's more English being spoken which is a great help. They have great lunch specials and when I ask my 5 yr old daughter where she wants to go, she always says here.

  • Our favorite Korean
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 2/7/2014
    Our family has been coming here for almost 7 years and have consistently had very good meals. Always great banchan, and at least 8 or so to start the meal. We come at least once per month and the banchan always has a few new ones. This is fun to bbq and the kids enjoy watching the meats cook over the charcoal. Some other favorites are the dolsot Bim Bim bap and the goat stew. Waitresses are very nice although not much english. Not the greatest neighborhood, but so worth the trip for an authentic korean experience.
