Service was excellent, quality of the meats was excellent, especially the Galbi. There was no the variety of banchon that we have had at many other establishments, and it was disappointing that there was only white rice (had a purplish rice with bean in other restaurants). Our waiters were very attentive and quickly replenished anything that we asked for as well as expertly barbecuing our food. The price was slightly higher than some of the other Korean establishments we have been to. The noise level was what you would expect at a busy restaurant. Some of the other places nearby have been so loud that conversation was difficult, so Dons Bogam was a very welcome change in that respect. We enjoyed our evening at Dons Bogam and would definitely return.

I'm use to a greater variety of small dishes (banchan), like I've had in Los Angeles and Seoul, but what was served tasted OK. We ordered japchae (glass noodle salad) and steamed egg (jjim), which were excellent. The marinade for the kalbi and bulgogi was too sweet in my opinion, but it was still savory. A little pricey overall, but the service was pretty good as well. We'll be back!

Food is great, people are courteous. Compared to nearby Korean BBQ places, felt much relaxing and roomier.

This was our first time here - we LOVED everything!!! Food is absolutely amazing, service was wonderful, it was a fantastic evening for all of us!! Loved the fried shumai dumplings, marinated short ribs, skirt steak, pork belly, and shrimp!!! Saki is pricey - don't bother with a carafe - just get the bottle - but it was great!! Other reviews said this restaurant was noisy - it was not!! We can't wait to come back!!

Overpriced with mid-level service. Non-koreans didn't know the quality well, but you pay for the sliced rib meat way thinner than typical cut yet charge you nearly $47 for per person. I am not impressed even with Naengmyun noodle.

Poor service and loud. Not worth it if you don't use the hibachi/cook yourself. Better steak and value elsewhere.

We drove from Massachusetts to NYC and tried this place our friends recommended , because they are supposed to have good cocktails. Our server told us that night that the bar tender was not there so no cocktails, and told us to order wine or shoju. Then when the meal Was over , I talked to the hosts at the front desk and they were shocked to what the server told us because the bar tender was there the whole time and the server could have made us cocktails himself too. It was a huge disappointment and I will never go back again.

Great food. Some issue with seating. We have long legs, and the seating is cut out of these large planks of wood, so you have to maneuver yourself in a strange way. Not sure if this is handicap accessible. Food was amazing. Feels like a more grown up KBBQ. The marinated flavors really work. A little loud for easy conversations, you might have to speak up a bit. Nice jazz music on the speakers.

I went there twice, it was so good! I am kind of crazy so I had the beef platter all to myself and I would have finished it all then and there if it wasn’t for my cousin who asked me to bring him some after I posted a story on my instagram!
Service was great but at some point I was annoyed as I was eating I requested a cocktail and was told that the bar closed down, why would you do that when your customers are still finishing up their dinner. The kitchen that I understand, and I was advised to order something else before they closed down. You could have said the same about the bar!
Overall I would recommend that place, I’d definitely go again, only this time I’ll make sure I can still order my drinks!

The food was excellent, best glass noodles we’ve had in a long time.
Excellent wine list, though rather on the expensive side, I would have loved to see bottles at a lower price point.

This was the PERFECT place for a first date. They seated us quickly, and then let us chat and have the whole evening at our own pace. We were never rushed to order, eat, or pay. We easily spent about 2 hours at the table enjoying talking to each other and sharing great food. The whole experience was wonderful.

I come here all the time and love the food but service this time was disappointing. After getting our meal our server didn’t even check back once to see if we needed anything else. We asked for more water and it didn’t come. So not sure what is going on since we always have a great experience here but service was definitely disappointing.
