Took my husband here on his birthday. The ambience and views from our table were nice! We loved that our servers cooked our meats for us, it allowed us to relax and just enjoy. Staff were very attentive and communicated well! Our favorite items were the Yuzu drink and Calamari Salad. The ribeye in the Goan set was also very yummy and cooked well. We will definitely come back for another date!

The meat itself is not the best but the view and service is outstanding. The appetizers were delicious as were the sides for the meat. Meat was not tender at all.

The food at this awesome Kotean restaurant was amazing. My friend and I were visiting from Staten Island and this restaurant was recommended by my brother for their breath taking views. It was no disappointment for such a great atmosphere to the waiter/waitresses tableside manners, to our drinks being refilled right away, to the amazing reccomendation of our Snickers dessert. We also got the set of ribeye, kalbi, bulgogi, 2 kinds of soup, banchan and egg thingie. For 2 people, I thought the prices were fairly reasonable for Manhattan Korean fare. Thank you. We will definitely go there again. I will bring my family next time!

Omg it's sooooooo good.I went with my friends on July 4th--for the fireworks.The waiter not only helped us fry meat, but also reminded us that the fireworks had already started, and let us go to the glass to watch it.🥺The service was really good. We gave 20 tips directly.😋

Very rude staff. Not accommodating whatsoever. Had a great experience last time I went Gaonnuri in the fall, but the service this time around was very sub par. For the money they charge, you expect much better service. Very disappointed

Really a standout and the service cannot be beat. Generous portions. There was 5 of us and the waiter suggested we order 3 of the fixed priced meals and it was still too much!

Service was not good. And it's very pricy, food was just average. I have been coming to this place for several years but all of my party were not happy with service. I ain't coming again.
