    Wish they had a warmer for the cooked meat and soups. Or even have the finished meat on a warm grill after being cooked. This place is known for eating in a slower pace so temperature of the meat and soups should be consistent thruout the meal. The service was excellent though. Very attentive and professional.

    Went on a date with my lady and the ambience was great, The view is gorgeous while we dined overlooking our beautiful city lights and towers. Amuse bouche came out on unpolished China and the ice cubes in the dish made it annoying to enjoy, the “live” octopus was over cooked. The steamed tofu dish with salad was under seasoned as well as the almost cold seafood pancake that would serve well with a sauce of some sort. Just my opinion. The serves did not have full information available on simple ingredients during our over priced 5 course tasting menu. The meats were fine, the bibimbap was amazing as well as dessert. Servers were attentive but the lack of explaining dishes and components at that price point for two diners was underwhelming. There’s a strong chance I won’t return for food.

    First time in my life, whether in South Korea, Brazil or the US, that I go to a Korean reataurant that does not serve bulgolgi. Super disappointing. Sirloin meat was sparse and fatty. Not good at all. Atmosphere is stiff and pretentious. Views are nice if you are lucky to get a good table. Otherwise, food is mediocre and you’re paying for top floor dining.

    My family of 6 enjoyed our "after theater" dining experience at Gaonnuri . There was a wonderful sense of restaurant team work starting with the person who greeted us on the ground floor to the receptionist who seated us at a 39th floor window with a spectacular northern view of NYC, and then continuing with all the waiters and servers who provided close attention to every aspect of our food choices (three of us had sesame seed and oil food allergies). The entire restaurant staff were seasoned professionals and pleasantly made sure we were satisfied with the service and meal throughout the two and half hours we were there. We would go back in a heartbeat for the mushroom tangsoo and kimchi, let alone the Korean bbq steak that was grilled in front of us to perfection. We were so happy with this fine dining experience. We will have no hesitation recommending the restaurant to friends, even though it was very expensive -- but, as the expression goes "you get what you pay for" -- and we think the Gaonnuri experience was very much worth it! Thank you Open Table for handling our reservation.

    This was my fourth time dining here, but the first for my spouse. We had an enjoyable evening. He was especially taken with the amazing skyline and river views. Our servers were all very kind and helpful and the tables are nicely spaced. We enjoyed the japchae noodles and BBQ duck grilled at the table, though the mixed grilled vegetables we also ordered were a bit dull since everything tasted the same (the mushrooms were tastiest). It also took a very long time to get a second glass of wine. In any event, this is a great choice for a special occasion—or just a nice evening out—and we would definitely return.

    Food was delicious, servers helpful and friendly. View is great --- when they lift the shades facing west! Apparently the sunshine bothers diners... which is an awful shame for those of us who came for the view. Spicy chicken appetizer and seafood pancake highly recommended.

    Go early if you want a more intimate time with that special someone, or a bit later in the day if you want to have a more vibrant feel to the room. The kitchen is willing to accommodate dietary restrictions if you're polite about how you ask, so don't be afraid to get the 5-course tasting menu even if one or two of the courses don't fit your diet.

    Overpriced. Wagyu was good. Duck was terrible for $48. It was cooked almost like teriyaki chicken. I've been there a few times before the pandemic. This last experience has been a shock. The value of dining has increased 10 fold and quality has declined big time. You don't get the bang for your buck at all.

    Wonderful birthday evening! Very-well organized welcoming at the building entrance - one elevator by reservation. Arrived 30 minutes earlier than our booking time, and could be seated right away at our Window table. Service was attentive and very professional. Food was refined and delicious. Got a special birthday plate in addition to the dessert. View was outstanding! Would recommend it for sure !!!!

    First time to try the Chef’s Tasting Menu and we were not disappointed. As always, the staff at GAONNURI are attentive and truly focused on making your meal memorable. Window table allowed us a beautiful view of New York City from the 39th floor as we enjoyed a five-course menu that was diverse in flavors and well portioned. The strip steak and short ribs course was memorable and will be on our list for future visits.

    Overall it was a good experience. The food did not disappoint. We ordered the steak set, black cod, and bibimbap. Additionally we tried the tuna tartar, fried chicken, and veg dumplings.. All were delicious. Portions are small, but we all left satisfied. We were taking our daughter out for her 21st birthday (actually on that night). I had mentioned it several times, and tried to get a seat near the window but we were put in the dead center of the room and they did not remember her birthday. My biggest issue was that we were rushed. Staff came to our table seemingly every minute and a half to ask if we were ready... and when we said no they said no problem and kept coming by. I would describe Gaonnuri as more of a corporate type of restaurant. I would come back and recommend but only if I had a window seat as we did not get the full experience.

    Waiter accidentally (fully understand that accidents happen) tipped over an entire glass of water, saturating my colleague's shirt and pants. Not a single word of apology. We used our linen napkins to mop up the water (including cleaning the floor). When I asked for fresh napkins, the same waiter gave us three small paper cocktail napkins. First time I have ever had Korean bbq where the small side dishes were not replenished. Despite the spectacular review, would not return and would not recommend.
