Always consistent high quality and beautiful city views from the 39th floor. Our waitress was very accommodating to our plant based modification requests. I love taking visitors here as a special experience.

Only complaint was the tip calculated on the whole bill including the tax, I don’t tip the government. It’s misleading and probably illegal . The tip should be on the bill before the taxes unless you are going to give it to the government which I’m sure you aren’t

The food was delicious. The staff attentive & warm. The atmosphere festive. The cost is high making it a place for celebration rather than every night dining.

Food was definitely overpriced. I would not go again. Bulgogi was so dry. Banchan was hardly Korean. If you want to see the view you can go eat semi-Korean food. We spent $132 for 2 without any drinks.

It's always such a special treat to take visitors to Gaonnuri. I love the modern and minimalist decor and sweeping city views from their floor to ceiling windows. They offer outstanding service and cuisine.

Amazing view and great tasting food! I read a lot about the view but not much about the food but after visiting, I certify that it is a damn good place to eat and enjoy the beautiful NY skyline. Located on 39th floor, it delivers great ambience and the staff ensures you enjoy your time. Definitely worth every penny!

The ambience was beautiful. And the views were AMAZING! We had 2 servers and they were AWESOME and friendly. The food was spectacular. We loved everything about this place and will definitely be back! I definitely recommend this place for date night or special occasion. The only downside was that I was too tired to take the train home. The itis hit me hard. Lol But that's because I was being greedy and ate almost EVERYTHING on the table. Lmaosmh
