We went for a birthday celebration. The staff is super nice and accommodating. We were able to order even though a member of our party was running late. The foos was delicious and the grill in the middle of the table was a nice touch.
Best view, best food, with fantastic service celebrating a friends birthday
The service here is second to none we always had some one by the table ready to take. Any order we might have . The food was also great and we had a table next to the window so the view was amazing
Beautiful. Simply put, just stunning really. The view was amazing the seating arrangements spectacular, our waiter, though I’m not sure if he said his name or not, is brilliant I truly enjoyed having him as our waiter.
Now the food was the major talk of the table- it was that good 😌 I will be returning enough time to try everything on the menu that isn’t shellfish of course.
This place was great. Food was fantastic. I’ll definitely be back.
This was an amazing experience, the food and drinks were excellent and the view was simply breathtaking.
We loved the food at the restaurant and great Customer Service.
Wonderfully quiet space for a nice get-together. Would recommend here for both the food and the ambiance, and also, the view.
Beautiful chic restaurant with a great vibe but it was empty the day after Election Day. We enjoyed our anniversary dinner without the crowds. Felt like private dining. Wish the entree and appetizers were not so sweet. Also the multi course set menu had to be for two so we were bummed we could not order it as one was exclusively for dark meat eaters and the other one for white meat eaters.
We loved it so much here, we went twice on back to back days.
Manager guy was mean and not nice to us at all. I don't even know the reason why he doesn'teven smile. I hope he fix his attitude.
But other staff were extremely nice and good service.
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
