Excellent food and service. The bon chon and meat were all delicious. Only minor issue is related to the tables. They are arranged to feel like you are sitting on the floor but there are full size chairs, hard to explain but the result is you need to climb down into the seats. Getting in and out was a little awkward, fine for young and healthy people but it could be a challenge for people with mobility issues. I believe there were other tables available so if this is a concern ask for one of the more traditional style tables.

Food was great but very expensive. The experience is enjoyable, but not quite worth what you pay!

Food was delicious, especially the beef. Not sure the chicken was worth the cost. Nothing special but the beef was superior. Also had a delicious seafood pancake appetizer. The kimchi and small dish accompaniments were well done. Overall nice ambiance, good food and wine selection.

Food was just OK, but I have had better in Korea Town. Service was nice though and we got an indoor table even though I was only able to book outdoor seating.

While there are plenty of authentic, Korean BBQ restaurants in Koreatown, none offer the elevated ambience & service of Don Bogam.

Been here several times, fairly consistent, the bbq choices are a good option. This evening’s banchan selection was good (always changes). Sat outside in heated cabin. Service was friendly.

Service was a bit of a mess. They didn't even have our table ready at the booking time and asked would we mind staying at the bar instead, even though there is no grill there and it's super windy. They seemed a bit overwhelmed. Eventually after 20 mimd they found something. Food took a long time too. They were apologetic about it and food was really good but yea seemed to be quite chaotic.

My family enjoyed dinner here on a Thursday night. We did have a reservation and were seated quickly. The interior of the restaurant was nice and we enjoyed the Asian style seating. The service was excellent as was the food.

A little pricey for an every day dining experience but excellent for a weekend treat! Definitely recommend.

The beef was great no doubt but what taste best for us were non-marinated Rib-Eye steak and Skirt steak. However, the service was slow during the afternoon, probably due to shortage of staff and also it’s an afternoon session so less people and less servicing people.

We loved our dinner for 6 at Dons. The service was great, and the food was delicious... everything was so tasty and there so many different textures and flavors. The only negative was it was difficult to climb in and out of the seating around the table-pit. We were pleasantly surprised at the good ventilation. Thanks and hope to return soon!

Everything overall was great! We were running late for the reservation so I called the restaurant and they said not to worry which was nice. Once we got there the ambience, food and drinks did not disappoint. I highly recommend the lychee martini

If you like the taste of beef they do a better job of highlighting that taste than the usual high end American steakhouse.

Tables need updating to full western flooring/seating. I understand the concept, to create an authentic ambience of sitting on the floor—of 마루. But seating is impractical and arduous. I saw diners stumbling and grunting getting in and out (myself and my husband included!) The poor wait staff having to lean at such a challenging angle to assist with bbq and cleaning tables…no wonder they are all very young men in good physical shape!

Also, the ventilation needs updating. Too much smoke. Unhealthy for the workers, esp.

Had the opportunity to go to Don's Bogam to celebrate a family member's birthday on a Friday night. I really enjoyed the overall ambiance of the restaurant, compared with the many other options that are available in K-Town at that time. It is much more sophisticated, with the noise level manageable and the service really great. Ordered various BBQ meats, the bacon eggs and was able to enjoy a great conversation.

The only thing that is a bit awkward is with the table design. We were seated next to another part of 4, and based on the way that the tables are half-designed with western and Korean aspects you need to walk on some wood behind others to get into the inner-most part of the table. That's not something that the restaurant can easily change, as it is part of the design that you might eat with other people at the same table who are not part of your party if you have a group of 4 as we did. Still, it was manageable and expected on a Friday night as the place slowly filled up with more and more diners.

this is simply not a good authentic Korean place, no rice paper, only 4 little sides (boring steamed brocoli, Kimchi, hard brown beans, and soja) what a joke! where are the little sausages, fish, soups, salads and other delicious fun sides that make spending $200 fun...
