Could not have asked for a better restaurant to take a date on her birthday. All of my requests were met and the food was great! Will definitely be going back. Special thanks to the 5-8 staff who helped us that night.

Unfortunately, it was the service and the general feel between the manager and team that left me not wanting to return. We were seated over thirty minutes after our reservation time. We sat for another fifteen minutes before being offered a beverage. The view is beautiful and the food a pleasant experience.

Four of us are neophytes when it comes to Korean cuisine. The waitstaff were helpful in providing great guidance. They made the 13th birthday celebration for our visiting guests very special. It is a real find in midtown-an oasis from holiday madness. We will return.

We were there for Mother's 84th birthday. I mentioned this fact just once on the phone so that we could maybe have a table with a great view. So it was a real pleasant surprise when they brought to our table a beautifully decorated birthday desert for Mother at no charge. What a most thoughtful gesture on the part of the restaurant. Mother was so moved by it that she would not stop talking about it to everybody she spoke to since then. The food was excellent. We ordered both Combo's from the BBQ section, vegetarian Bibimba, and drinks from the bar and everything was so so good. And, of course, the night view of NYC was like a richly-lit Christmas tree... so beautiful. We had a most memorable dining experience. We will definitely be back for other special events in the future. Thank you GAONNURI!

We had a truly lovely experience at Gaonnuri. Per usual, the service was impeccable . Our waiter completely accommodated my gluten sensitivity, including changing the traditional soy sauce to gluten-free and substituting on ingredient in the dish we ordered for another. The view is beautiful and the decor stunning. My friend truly enjoyed her birthday celebration.

Beautiful setting and wonderful presentation. “Gaby” was our waitress for the night and she was informative and was a delight to have around and serve us our dinner for Anniversary. The lighting was right, the atmosphere was a typical busy NYC FRIDAY Night. The scene on the top of the 29th flor was amazing. Hearty selection of wines. The BBQ Combination we ordered was better than we expected. The Dessert was a surprise to our taste buds. The staff and hostess were polite , respectful, and friendly. Officially my new Korean BBQ Spot!

"Fine dining" Korean BBQ style with a view (39th floor). But disappointed!: flavorless Kim Chee, very limited + basic bon chon (potatoes, etc) and BBQ was small. Front bar lacks knowledge of a basic wine pour. You complete at the fullest part--not far beneath. This was embarrassing for them (for us to explain this). Go for views and to "see & be seen." Booked/received window seats. Go elsewhere on 32nd for the authentic flavorful cuisine.
