I have been to this restaurant several times but the food has never been better. This was a true banquet and the service was exemplary. Can't wait to go back again.

Food was amazing but the waitress was very Moody and somehow rude.
Didn't feel comfortable asking for anything because she would roll her eyes on us. It's a shame because it was a special occasion and I felt like the service was not up to the standards of the restaurant and couldn't enjoy as I was expecting

We have been there 5 or 6 but first time since the pandemic, the services were excellent as always, friendly and great customer services.

But the foods quality has went down a little. Beef meat was not great, the soup was extremely salty, seafood pancake was so think and feel/taste like you are eating solid flour.

Atmosphere was noisy, this supposed to be fine dinning but due to the noise from other customers, we did not really enjoy that much but I guess this is something the restaurant cannot control.

Hope these will get improve next time when we go again.

Food was amazing. The service was absolutely great. Never went a moment that I needed something and someone was not around. When I called to make a reservation, I was asking for a window seat and they told me it was not available but luckily when I showed up they seated me next to a window with an amazing view of the city. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and will sure enough return.

Gaonnuri was a great experience! The food was okay for Korean BBQ but the service was top-notch! Our server was polite and accommodating! He offered to take our polaroid photo for us. We ordered dessert (lava cake) which I could not eat due to my lactose allergy. The server surprised me with an assortment of Sorbet that I could eat, on the house! It was a great experience overall!

El cerdo es pura grasa, no me gustaron los acompañamientos. El tartar de atún bueno aunque el picante un poco fuerte.

The food potions were fair for the price. You really are paying for the service here. I would say the staff were amazing and well attentive to our needs. They even provided us with a treat for our anniversary.

This place was amazing. We were celebrating our post engagement dinner. The hostess was super kind and very organized. I requested a seat next to the beautiful view and he found a way to get us the table. The quality to service and attention at our table was outstanding. They came every 5 minutes to check the food and make sure that everything was perfect. The quality of their Korean bbq was top notch and every plate didn't disappoint. It is expensive compared to other Korean restaurants, but you get it back in quality of food and service which makes it all worth it.

Honestly, this place was very basic. It was only cool because of the view. If you want good Korean bbq I would recommend going elsewhere but if you want to go somewhere for a cool pic, then this is the place.

The view was good and the food was as well. The food is definitely worth the money, however at the end of the night I was hit with a surprise charge of $16 for water. That was definitely a “gotcha” charge as it isn’t on the menu and is ridiculously high. Felt really cheap and shady to me.

I love going to Gaonnuri, the food is always delicious, love the view and very friendly staff. This time however, the japchae was too salty and the banchan was less flavorful than usual, I hope it was only an off night and not a change for good. The meat was also marinated differently, seemed a little less flavorful too, it was very tasty though but not as much.

We had a table booked at 10pm. All ontime, nice set up.
They close the kitchen at 11pm which seems quite weird as we tried to get more rice to no available … it s a bit ridiculous to then let people arrive at 10pm.
Otherwise nice dinner

Nice environment, simple decor, good views. Food came promptly, good quality meat and worth the money ($58pp for a set). Bibimbap was quite good. Appetizers small portion but tasty.
