The whole experience was fantastic. The service we received was world class. We opted to share a mix of items, and our server recommended a number of dishes that helped create a meal to remember.

Excellent Korean food with a spectacular view. The Yu Ke Jang was superb as was the Kalbi Jim. We asked for extra spicy and they delivered!

The restaurant is located on 39th floor and the view of the city is beautiful.
Unfortunately, the food is generally mediocre and portions are ridiculously small when compared to other Korean restaurants (eg kimchi served with bbq dinner is literally a tablespoon sized).
Also some tables are not bbq tables - if you get such table do not order bbq meat - unless you enjoy it lukewarm and totally dry/shriveled.
Black sesame ice cream is wonderful and worth recommending.
Service is not impressive. Food and service have a long way to go and don’t live up to the restaurant’s beautiful location and architecture.

We got two combos for BBQ - the amount is quite big for people of 5. The dessert “baked Alaska” is an interesting one!!!

I reserved a window seat to celebrate my sisters birthday. Upon entering we were told our table would be ready in 5 minutes, after about 10 minutes we were told our table wouldn’t be ready for another half hour, however, we could have a booth to ourselves. This was a let down. The food overall was okay — nothing special compared to the other restaurants around. We were also brought two water bottles that they charged us extra for — this was not explained beforehand, they just asked if we wanted sparkling or still water. 8$ a bottle for water? Ridiculous considering we barely even drank it.

Overall the restaurant is overrated and I won’t be returning again.

Of course the view was spectacular; one of the main reasons to check out this location. The food was amazing. Ordered the Japchae appetizer and Samon Gui. The Japchae was delicious. Sizing was perfect for an appetizer. I requested the salmon gui be cooked well done. It was cooked perfectly but I lost some of the taste because the food was so hot I burned my tongue. Not necessarily a bad thing though. My date ordered the Mandoo Guk with oysters which was delicious. Portion size was far beyond expectations, you get a lot more food than anticipated. Overall great experience and will be returning.

Our flight from Europe was delayed and upon arrival to the restaurant we were not accommodatedin the main dinning room but on a spare room with very little difference to any cafe Terri’s. Food was Mediocare and for what it was served very expensive. They seemingly did not marked our arrival and reported us to Open table as “no show”!! Very careless!

We booked the place for our daughter’s 18th Birthday dinner, at her request. It was her favorite restaurant, because she loves Korean food and for the view. We booked 2 days in advance for Tuesday night dinner, with a very specific request for a nice table for the special occasion. We were seated at probably the worst table in the restaurant. We asked to change the table three times, showing the special requirement message in the OpenTable confirmation. The waiter was a nice guy and tried to accommodate our request (he said he could move us when a window table opened up), but the guy at the reception in charge of seating was very cold, unfriendly, almost rude, and absolutely refused. A window table opened up, and remained open throughout our stay at the restaurant. No word of “Happy Birthday”, except from the nice waiter who I think was embarrassed - the treatment from the restaurant was plain cold, which is actually rare in the NY restaurant environment. Our daughter was sad and embarrassed. Very upsetting for what was meant to be a very special occasion.

Very disappointed. I have been to Korea many times and the style of barbecue does not reflect traditional Korean. The service was slow and some of the appetizers were actually cold. The atmosphere was great though.

Overall great experience at Gaonnuri. Staff accommodated our request for window seat. Servers were attentive but not intrusive. All were pleasant and friendly and answered our questions. This was our first time to Korean restaurant so we asked for suggestions for hot appetizers as well as main meals. The appetizer dumplings were mouth watering. Delicious! The bibimbap bowls were extremely hot and while the server did warn us that it was hot, I felt like she needed to also explain that we should stir the contents or the rice would scorch (which it started to do a little). The cocktails were beautiful and delicious. We ordered flaming dessert - very tasty and fun to eat as a group. The views cannot be beat. I would definitely recommend to a friend and would go again for the dumplings and the view. Fantastic memorable evening!

We went here for a celebration. The food was very good, but the service was not so good. Our waiter took our order without writing it down, then of course, forgot a dish. I find this very annoying and it happens so frequently when waiters don't write down the order. We had five people, each ordering several things. Then we never saw the waiter again, just his helper. He never came to check on us and our food. This is an expensive restaurant and I think the service could have been better.
