Amazing! What a great dining experience.
Perfect date night in a perfect location with mouthwatering food cooked at our table.
Beautiful restaurant, delicious food, would definitely recommend and return
Excellent food and service and a spectacular view. Totally recommended.
Loved the authenticity of Korean BBQ cuisine grilled, prepared and served at our table! The food was delish! We enjoyed the breathtaking NY city evening views from the 39th flr. Very hip modern interior design! Cool bar with great selection of sake, wines and cocktails! Excellent Service!
Loved it, fabulous views, service, food and drink. After dinner we moved to the lounge for champagne, great night, worth it.
Amazing view with excellent service,the food also definitely.
Worth the price and your time. I highly recommend. Great food, view and staff.
An incredible dining experience with an awesome view of the city. The food was delicious, my mouth is watering just by the thought of it. The staff was friendly and efficient. We can’t wait for our next trip to NYC to come here again!
Second time here with family and did not disappoint. Ordered two Gaon sets. Food was great, meat tasted exactly like what I would eat in Korea with just the right amount of seasoning. View is also beautiful at night, would recommend window seats!
It was so good! The ambiance is everything and more ! The food was well prepared and so filling
It’s for my sixth year of anniversary for my girlfriend. The food was alright, but the environment was really nice.
My server was super sweet !
Loved it. Thank You!
The cooking on the meat was very poor, we requested our ribeye to be medium rare but the cook on the meat was near to well-done and our server was really rude, and he put the meat on our grill and left to let it burn (we did get a new meat at the end). However, to be honest, As a korean, I was expecting more from a high end korean bbq restaurant but definitely not worth the price of paying +200 dollars and I would say the only thing nice was actually the view, but I would rather cook the meat myself for the taste.
21st birthday of my friends son
Great food & excellent service. View of Manhattan skyline was wonderful
I specifically requested a table by the window with a view. The hostess sat us on the opposite side of the restaurant, away from the view. I asked her if we could switch our table, and she said those other tables are reserved. I said I requested to sit by the window for my reservation also, and she didn’t seem to care. Our waiter was difficult to understand and kept trying to make us order more food. The bus boys brought us the wrong dish twice. The food was incredible, but not the best service and not very accommodating.
This was an amazing experience. The atmosphere and view were fantastic, and it was great fun to have them cook each meat separately at the table. I give them my highest recommendation!
The food is superb, the view is equally amazing, and the staff is unbelievably kind and accommodating. Looking forward to our next visit.
Love the place quiet great customer services. Very clean beautiful place.
Amazing view , very very good taste, very good expérience thanks!!
My sister's 46th bday and she flew in from Italy to celebrate my 50th bday last week. We dine often for the last 10 years as the restaurant's regular customers. The service last night was the first time of being inattentive and uncharacteristically lacked of care. The server has no hospitality bone and did the bare minimum at the grill. He left us for a long time. When asked for a few items of the Banchan refills acted aa if it was taxing on his time. The last 10 years I had experienced nothing but amazing service. We also dined with friends from Paris earlier this month on Friday, Nov 12th and my request for a window-side table was granted. This time it was not and we were seated on the upper lower with hardly any views for my sister's special day. The food remained superb. We hope this is just with this time and not the next time we return.
Grate food, music nice view I recommend Gaonnuri
I loved eating at Gaonnuri. It was a truly wonderful experience. The food was incredible as was the service. I plan on coming back soon and I can't wait to try new items on the menu and have that experience again.
very good meal except the meat marinades were too sweet. Cut back on the sugar, please.
Agreed with the other reviews that the food itself wasn’t amazing compared to other Korean bbq spots but service was excellent as was the view.
Alan went above and beyond for our table! We really enjoyed our dinner!
Great food, great service and great views. We had a great time
This used to be my favorite Korean BBQ restaurant, and went back for the first time since Pandemic started.. I noticed food quality went down a lot - maybe chef changed? Marinated meet was still good, but quantity was very little. Also side dishes was not as good as before. My server was rather rude and moved us to different room after 2 hours while a lot of table were empty. Nobody came to take our desert order after we moved to different room and had to order from bartender.
Hopefully things go back to normal as more people start dining there.
This was our first experience with Korean barbecue, and it was perfect! The waitstaff were both polite and helpful, and Wonik was very patient with the fact that neither of us knew what we were supposed to be ordering or eating!
Fantastic experience. Would recommend year round visits to this location. Service is exemplary.
Great place loved the view the food the service
Amazing night in NYC with the best BBQ food! I will go there again…and again!
Food was fabulous; great service 10/10 will be back for sure
Exceeded expectations! Food was very good, service was courteous and attentive and the ambiance was very nice and relaxing! I’ll will be back!
Atmosphere was amazing but service was awful. I had to flag down the staff for everything: ordering drinks, to removing appetizer plates, to check on our food order. It was SOOOO exhausting. Our main waiter served everyone except our table. Considering the food was bad and the bill came out to be $500, the restaurant can do alot better.
Amazing dining experience! They made my burthday so special.
Understand these days you don’t get much table time, but set to 1 1/2hr to 2hr dining time. But the service was so much of rush and it was too obvious that they were trying to set the clock, for example getting all the food at once(I ordered a lot), it was such a turn- off scene to be served like that at that kind of high end restaurant. And pouring the bottle of wine so fast and a lot topping on unfinished glass was rather ridiculous. overall it was not a pleasant experience and this is not a cheap restaurant remind.
The view is spectacular. You need to book early to secure the window table. There are tons of Korean restaurant serves better food on the same block, but this is a good place to bring your out of town friends.
