We had a wonderful birthday dinner! Everything was fantastic especially the view! Definitely will be back again soon!
My husband and I always enjoy the quality food they serve. This time I invited some friends to join us for dinner and we were very excited. The food was very good as always. My issues were with the waitress who took our order and the waiter who grilled the meat for our table.
They were impatient, they were short with answers. They walked away before we finished our requests and questions. It was quite embarrassing for me to hear from our guests mentioning that the waitstaff was rude.
Good food is important at a restaurant, but the quality of restaurant experience is really depends on the staffs. Unfortunately my experience was terrible this time.
Love everything about this place, the quality of the food and service is always maintained. Delicious food and with a great view
We really enjoyed it, will definitely recommend it to our friends. And later come back again.
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.
Celebrated my birthday dinner and I was an absolute delight to dine in Gaonnuri. Breathtaking views the food exceptional and the service was impeccable. I would dine here again when In New York
Food & service was great!
My kids loved the Korean bbq!
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.
Consistently good ‘fancy’ Korean BBQ. Very nice and helpful staff.
Fun night for our daughter’s graduation dinner. Beautiful sunset and overall good good. Sides were a little simple but the meats, chicken and prawns were excellent.
Incredible food. Great atmosphere. Excellent service. Highly recommend.
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.
Very nice and accommodating personal. Beautiful NYC views. Great interior design. Highly recommend to visit.
The food is always good and the drinks are always strong. Great service yet again.
Great experience overall, upscale but relaxed atmosphere. Nice view, and the food was good. All staff was friendly and very attentive.
Lovely ambience, great views, and delicious food! The desserts very especially incredible!
wonderful experience I must say. The food, The views, The ambience, The service was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant :)
Fantastic views, welcoming and quiet, yummy food. The only caveat is that the place is somewhat pricey. Still highly recommended.
was very wonderful! the service was so great and our waitress really made sure all our food was yummy! also...those margaritas !!! 10/10!!!
I ALWAYS ENJOY MY DINNERS AT GAONNURI VERY MUCH..........MY OBSERVATION THIS TIME WAS THAT THE PREVIOUS DRESS CODE WAS NOT ADHERED TO. PERHAPS IT WAS A RAINY DAY AND COLD WHICH CAUSED THE GUESTS TO BE SO CASUALLY DRESSED..............
I AM GLAD YOUR BACK................MY BEST TO MR. SUN
Meat is a bit burnt
Great place to take someone you want to impress! Food and service are amazing! Not to mention, the VIEW.
Great environment. Food was good. Friendly staff...
Got great seats overlooking the city for my girls birthday. The food was delicious, ambience perfect and service exceptional. They also gave us a complimentary birthday ice cream plate! So sweet! Would definitely recommend and will come back to this place again soon!
Food and service was great. This was personally my first time NYC so y’all did a fantastic job.
Highly recommended, will be back as soon as I can :-)
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.
Loved this restaurant. The service was amazing, their food as well. The view was amazing, too! I hope to come back when I visit New York in the future. You won't regret coming here. Great place!
Excellent Views, Excellent Service, Excellent Food. We will be back.
food was amazinggg! I would definitely come back here again
Food was excellent service was great and the ambiance was gorgeous. Really enjoyed our dining experience . Celebrated my mom’s birthday and all of our expectations were fulfilled and more!!
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!
Great experience and delightful to grant a special request for an occasion with friends.
Beautiful restaurant at the 39th floor.
The food was very good and nicly portioned, drinks too.
The staff was nice!
I requested window seat with view but ended up seating at a bad table which I can’t see any of the view.
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
Absolutely AMAZING!!! Lily was just delightful!!! Cannot wait to be back again’n
