    My husband and I had an amazing dinner last night for my birthday. We had a table by the window to enjoy the view from this penthouse restaurant. We absolutely loved every bite from the fried chicken and steamed dumpling appetizers to the prime sirloin cooked in front of us to the decadent and imaginative desserts. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive as well. A lovely evening!

    My first time at Gaonnuri since the pandemic started in 2020 (been there many times before). A business dinner with two collaborators. The restaurant at the top of the building (29-th floor) with views of NJ, Times Square and a majestic Empire State Building are the same magical as they always were. The menu is slightly changed (shorted) is this is good. Too much choice is just that - too much. The BBQ mains are as tasty as they always were and the appetizers are delicious, better than I remember. Service is quick and courteous and the ambiance is civilized and warm. Noise level is moderate, so a quiet conversation is possible. Overall an outstanding value and wonderful experience, well worth it. Did I mention the breathtaking views of midtown Manhattan ?

    We booked the tasting menu by the window for 2. The meats were really good. But we have been disappointed by the view. Only one of us was able to have the view by the window. The other one was faced to the dining room…

    This is the perfect place for a special occasion but it is so wonderful that it shouldn’t be the only time you go there. The atmosphere is beautiful, the service is impeccable and the food delicious. We had a 5:30 reservation and were seated promptly. The only off putting element was that we were informed they were fully booked and we needed to finish by 7:30. I have never had this happen before. At any rate we did not feel rushed and every aspect of the meal was exceptional.

    It was amazing! The food was simply delicious and creative but if I were to have to think of one thing I’d change is to not limit window seating to only the tasting menu if we’re making a reservation in advance! Otherwise, all was just wonderful!

    The quality of the steak was not as good as what I’ve had at other Korean barbecues in Seoul. We enjoyed the atmosphere but we were told we had to give up the table after two hours. Actually we had a great 2 hrs. The views were not as spectacular as we hoped but still impressive. The service was outstanding and staff were very nice.

    Fantastic location of course. Friendly service. Prime ribeye to die for. But the US waygu was a disappointment. We actually wonder if something went wrong. The cuts we had US waygu were comparable to beef fajitas at a Mexican joint. Still a great experience and the whole family loved the dinner:)

    We ordered three dishes and nothing left me terribly impressed or wanting to go back. The lobster got lost in the oily aspect of the fried rice, the octopus just tasted spicy, and the fried chicken wasn’t fried after all, more sautéed in a sauce.

    Incredible – top tier meat, attentive and professional service. Definitely on the pricey side, but absolutely worth it for the view and experience. They brought a special anniversary dessert without needing to ask. Only con was one mixup where I ordered one portion of ribeye and they brought (and charged) for two, but I happily ate both!! Well done GAONNURI team.

    Pretty luxury Korean BBQ place with a nice view and vibe, however be prepared for the relatively small portion size as they serve rare kinds of beef (Wagyu). Worth going to celebrate something.

    Great food and great service. Lovely place. We enjoyed our evening. However it is a bit overpriced sadly. Probably because of the view. And side dishes are very limited. Would be great if they diversified the veggies a bit. There's only so much kimchi/cabbage one can eat..
