Waiter was amazing explained everything in detailed. Restaurant agreed to make dinner reservation for 10pm. After offering a 7 course meal for valentines day I felt it was rude that my date and I were not done eating and were asked tonleave because they were already closed. After a high bill I would have expected to be allowed to finish my dinner. Went from a 10 rating to a 1. Customer experience was horrible after that point.

Un braquage !!!
Beaucoup, beaucoup, beaucoup trop cher
575 $ pour un menu saint Valentin imposé, alors que cela n’a jamais été précisé à la réservation !! ( 2 menus + 1 bouteille de champagne )
Changement de table en cours de repas, sur une table avec une nappe non remplacée, tachée de partout et avec de la nourriture dessus !!!
A 23h ( nous avions réservé pour 22h ), les serveurs ont commencé à débarrasser les tables dressées, et à les laver au désinfectant !! Grande classe pour déguster ses plats !!
Nous attendons encore le « merci, aurevoir » après nous être fait dévaliser la carte de crédit !! Plus personne au desk d’accueil !!
Un attrape touristes rien de plus !!!
Fuyez !!

I was told one week before my reservation that there were no bbq’s to cook our own food, but when I called 4 weeks ago to make my reservation they said they confirmed that we will have a bbq. Then last week I was told that it was $115/person for the prix fixe tasting menu, and it turned out to be $125/person. Last time I checked the website, this was nowhere to be found in the menu section. When I received the bill, they charged me twice for the already added in gratuity. It said it charged 18%, but it was actually 36% that was added in automatically to my bill. They corrected that but I will never go back here for the very unprofessional and ridiculous experience for an OK meal.

Loved this place. I wanted a romantic valentine’s celebration and this is exactly what I was expecting. I’d found it off a google search so I had no idea what to expect. The food was amazing and we got to watch it being cooked on our bbq table. The view is amazing even though it was nighttime. The service was fantastic and would highly recommend.

Terrific nightscape views of NYC. Seems a bit disorganized and communication is a continuing problem. Food is average for Korean food but ambiance is what you’re paying for.

Very pleasant -- obviously the best view in the world. Food is carefully prepared and generous.
One problem: reception/welcome is seriously understaffed. Greeter was alone and received and did phones at same time, was hassled and gave us wrong menus. Dress code sign at reception requests business attire but greeter had his sleeves rolled up! When we left no one to retrieve our checked coats, so we helped ourselves. Understaffed!

Wow what spectacular food—the calamari was the best I’ve ever had and the lobster fried rice was full of lobster claw meat. What a gorgeous bday dinner we had. Sadly the bar staff and the hostess were incredibly rude and dismissive towards my party, who were there to celebrate a very special birthday. I highly recommend the food but management really needs to reevaluate their inhospitable staff at the door and bar.

The restaurant was listed as fine dining but this was not the case at all. The service was slow and not very attentive. The menu was never explained nor did we ever feel as if the waiter was interested in serving our table. The desert was dry and nothing special. We eat out a lot and tried several other places for restaurant week and were provided with better food and service. I have gotten better Korean food in Flushing Queens. The restaurant did not impress and was overall a disappointment.

The food was fantastic (we did the Table BBQ options for the Restaurant Week menu, which the servers handled all the cooking for) and the view honestly cannot be beat. It's a little pricy but the quality is definitely there, which makes this a fantastic and reasonable option for special occasions. The wine list by the glass is a bit limited, but the choices that are there are all good quality.

We were a few minutes late and there was nobody to take us to the restaurant. We were calling them and the answering machine kept picking up. You cannot go to the restaurant unless they pick you in at the lobby. And finally when we got through the sent an obnoxious rude person to pic us up . Did not say a word to us and was super rude. That being said our water was lovely and the food was good . But the host or whateVer he was was rude and we almost left.

Very accommodating to seating as I had to switch from 4 to 5 at the very last minute. There was a wait time (of course), but they didn’t make a fuss about the sudden change (thank you)!
Was there for restaurant week and the selection was great! Unfortunately they’ve ran out of Bok Bun Ja, but our server recommended this delicious green tea cocktail to make up for it.
All in all, I’m very satisfied with the service and care that we received for my birthday dinner. Thank you!

I requested a window seat when I made the reservation, but was told that it has already been reserved for others with a later time. When we left there were tables by the windows that have not been seated by any party. I would not have came if I knew I was not accommodated.

We had the restaurant week special and ordered the BBQ with meat and one with Salmon.
The Meat was of poor quality and had no taste. The salmon was also of poor quality and had no taste. We ordered a side of mushrooms that were decent. The scallion pancakes and the soup we had were decent. The deserts were the best we had.
Overall a poor experience.
