Server was extremely nice and attentive. The experience the views were absolutely memorable! Great dinner for a date night or friend get together!
We celebrated a birthday of one of my friends. Service and food was great. The inside of the restaurant is beautiful. I highly recommend this place.
The food was creative and fabulous (Korean fusion). Sometimes felt a little bit too salty, but comprehensively good meal.
I went here with my friends and we loved it. It was 25% capcaity and on the 39th floor. It was kind of hard to find the place since we had to go around. The food was great. All the sides were great. I wasn't the biggest fan of kimichi, but this place changed my mind completely. The service was great, the staff was nice and helpful when we had questions. It was wonderful experience. 9/10, only because of the non-alcohlic drinks.
My second time back and definitely a great experience yet again. Great service, great food, and great Chablis!! I will definitely be back. Glad to still see Gaonnuri open despite current pandemic challenges. They also have up plexiglasses between each dining table and hosts take your temp before allowing you upstairs. There are also hand sanitizer stations.
amazing love this place. great service and amazing food.
The marinated galbi was chewy with lots if tendons. Too expensive for $43 and it took a while for them to bring out the food. They could have bring out the appetizers and side dishes while we wait. however the servers are very nice and polite. Ambience was great and place was clean. i’ll recommend but not to order galbi.
First indoor dinner since Covid
It was great
Staff was very attentive. The food was excellent and the ambiance was just perfect with a great view of the city lights.
What an outstanding experience, we were here for our anniversary and it was just reopening inside. Really nice restaurant and atmosphere
The place is closed! They hace not opened
The restaurant was closed! Didn’t even bother to let me know, I traveled for an hour to get to the building only for the guard downstairs to tell me the restaurant isn’t open!
Great spot...beautiful view go at dusk and see the city evolve..service is maybe a little subdued but very professional...food is great..unique..pretty pricey but that's to be expected..all and all 5 stars
Fantastic food and service. Not cheap, but definitely worth it!
Excellent food, great service and fantastic views. 4th visit, it's awesome every time and will be back again soon.
Great location with an amazing view of the setting sun if you go at the right time!
This is one of my favorite places to take guests when the come to NYC. The food is delicious, the experience unique, and the view outstanding. It always impresses!
Nice restaurant with great service and nice views of the city. Food is not cheap but very good food for sure. Entrance is hard to find but otherwise great experience.
Great service. Beautiful restaurant
Not so Hidden Jem. Live in the neighborhood, never knew this place existed. Excellent food, even better Ambience. Will be back with friends. Highly recommended!
Very good quality of food and such an amazing view.
Unfortunately the service was not that good.
all the waiters were very kind but they were not really efficient.
We were a table of 6 and the team was putting things to eat on a very low basis.
We asked them if it could go faster and nothing happened during 15min. We had the feeling they wanted us to only spend more time their to order more wine...
and I had the impression we had less food that the 2 last times we went.
Will come back for sure cause the 2 previous times did not happen like this and were quite perfect.
Just perfect! Had a wonderful time time and amazing food
Es una gran experiencia comer en este restaurante. Recomiendo cenar para poder disfrutar de las luces y edificios de Nueva York. Un gran acierto!!!!
Fabulous in every aspect. Our server, Alex Q , was outstanding. Food was excellent and the views! Can't wait to go back.
Beautiful view! When I made the reservation, I indicated it was for my Daughter’s birthday. They gave us a table with a fabulous view, they were very attentive and when we ordered dessert hers had a candle and happy birthday written on the plate. It was lovely.
Wonderful meal, service and views.
Place is beautiful with outstanding views. Food is very good, but very expensive. Staff is not very nice and English was very poor in our waiter who got angry when we kept asking him to repeat what he was saying since we couldn't understand him. Why didn't he get someone else to help him explain the dishes? It's a very expensive place so it's important to understand what you are ordering. I have been a number of times, but I won't go back after this experience.
This was the first Korean BBQ place I've been where the servers are really doing most of the cooking for you. It was a nice change. The views are awesome and the food was great
The food was fantastic, but soo much noise por dinner
Everything was amazing and wonderful
Tasty and interesting food, excellent service from friendly staff and fabulous views of Manhatten. A great night!
Great food and ambience! The duck breast is delicious.
Une très belle vue, mais une cuisine banale et très chère. 280 dollars pour 3 personnes pour le déjeuner, sans souvenir mémorable.
Terrible service. I think our server was cut but no one checked on us after she left. We never saw her again after we ordered food, but no one else took care of us. Waste of money.
Our go-to restaurant in K town. Food and service are consistent and reliable. They even have good dessert and coffee.
Excellent restaurant with great food, wine selections and very good service. We love the ambiance.
Amazing place I took my family for valentine's day and they actually loved it
Amazing experience with my wife celebrating Valentine’s Day. The view was breathtaking, love it. Definitely will recommend this restaurant.
I love this place, second time going and still such a great experience. The food is great, the ambiance is good. I recommended it to a number of people and will continue to do so.
Always can count on excellent food, service and view. Our favorite place to take out of town guests.
