GAONNURI [gah-ohn-nu-ri]: The Center of the World
The name GAONNURI represents our placement in what we believe is the center of the world, both physically and figuratively. Located in the heart of New York City,
a city that represents the intersection of the finest cuisines and eclectic cultures, GAONNURI seeks to gather people of all backgrounds to share
in a traditional Korean dining experience. We hope that the authenticity of the food
and the enjoyment of the dining experience will invite patrons for generations to come.
Thank you for allowing us to invite and serve you in our own culinary center.
One of the best experience in NYC. Late booking and their services was on point. I comment was a Birthday celebration and they bring birthday cake at the end. I recommend this restaurant 100%. The food is amazing and taste fresh. Love the experience and I will repeat.
This is one of my favorite go-to spots when I want to impress someone. Unique combination of quality and views make Gaonnuri a fantastic choice. I highly recommend the table barbecue for an even more fun experience.
Excellent service and great decor
Excellent food with the view of NYC.
Going Away Dinner
Great food, lovely décor, magnificent views, superb service.
Excellent repas dans un très beau cadre chaleureux avec une vue époustouflante . Les grillades cuites devant vous valent à elles seules le détour.
Je recommande vivement
Amazing views, great food, and excellent service. Overall a very fun experience for someone visiting from out of town.
Service was so poor. The food was good. With so many good korean restaurants around, Ppl go there for the view and ambiance and not so much the food. They had several empty tables with a better view, we asked to sit in one of those and they said they were all taken. They put us far away and with a horrible waiter who seemed he did not want to be there — not worth the price and totally ruined a special event for us.
The restaurant has a wonderful view and sensibility. This was my first time for dinner. I have had lunch two times previously and felt that I had better service (more attention) at lunch than we got at dinner. Also, I felt like the food could have been more flavorful than it was. But I love this place and will come back.
Tough to get into as the main entrance is actually now on around the corner through construction. The space is beautiful and the staff is very attentive and friendly. Price is quite steep for Korean bbq. I think it's a special occasion kind of place as there is bbq in NYC just as good for half the price.
Great view - worth getting a window table. We had 5 people and they recommended that they cook the meats in the kitchen. This was fine and possibly preferred by our group. Prix fixe meal option was excellent - we all tried different things - all were delicious - nicely seasoned/flavored. The dessert wasn't super creative but we enjoyed it (green tea ice cream and a deep fried cream puff). Only complaint was that it was confusing to find the entrance to the restaurant.
Repas famille célébration doctorat ! Parfait ! Vue magnifique. Nourriture et ambiance au top !
Great location and views, good food, service is as expected for such a place. Fancier and a little more expensive than average Korean BBQ place, but its worth it!
The service was not up to its standards while the food is quite overpriced.
Hochzeitstag. Das Essen war okay, aber der Service war wirklich nicht gut. Keine Zeit und keine Lust, etwas zu erklären und der Kellner sprach sehr schlecht Englisch. Er war kaum zu verstehen. Als wir nicht innerhalb weniger Minuten das Dessert und Kaffee bestellt hatten, wurde uns sofort die Rechnung auf den Tisch geknallt. Die Dessertkarte war früher sehr viel ansprechender. Ausserdem war die Air Condition mal wieder höllisch kalt und hat gezogen.
Wedding day. The food was okay, but the service was really not good. No time and no desire to explain and the waiter spoke very poor English. He was hard to understand. When we did not order the dessert and coffee within minutes, the bill was immediately popped on the table. The dessert menu used to be much more appealing. In addition, the air condition was cold like hell and has pulled.
The only Good thing about the place is the view. The rest.... well. How should I put it. Noisy, overpriced, lack of etiquettes (cocktails After the starters ?) Just finished the starters and staight away the main course.
And then the toilet .... aaaghhrr.
We are from Europe and How should I say it, dining is annother league.
Spent your money on a street taco is beter value.
Bellissima vista, cibo ottimo, personale attento e premuroso
We have eaten @ Gaonnuri many times & have never been disappointed there.
Gaonnuri is our favorite Korean restaurant in NYC. The food is excellent, there's an amazing view, and it's less crowded than the street-level restaurants.
Food, service , and the setting were simply beautiful.
So the location is amazing and some of the food was pretty good. The service was very friendly but lots of error. We order beef Jap Chae(sp?) and got Seafood Japchae not a huge problem but an error. I got my daughter a Kombucha. She started drinking it and then I looked at the can and realized it was hard Kombucha. Problem is they didn't know it was hard Kombucha. Again not a huge deal but an error. Hot bowls were ok ricevon the edge was not crispy. Bulgogi was flavorless but pickled sides were good. I think you are paying for the view which is spectacular
First time my daughters had Korean BBQ and they loved it. You can’t beat the view and food is also delicious. The young service staff was friendly and helpful. When we ordered we were undecided if we should order something else and the waitperson said we had ordered enough for the 3 of us. We took plenty of pictures of both the view and food. A wonderful evening.
I've been there for more then 7 to 8 times. But this last time was a let down. Appetizer took more then 35 minutes and after that 35 minutes the waiter came and told as that there was a mix up @ the kitchen and it'll take a little longer for our appetizer to come out. And throughout the meal our water wasn't even refilled. For the money you're paying and the amount of food and service you're getting in not worth it at all. Use to be way better before.
This is my second time and it was somewhat disappointing. Granted, it was a lovely Saturday night but my memory from the first time last year was much softer - in terms of comfort and noise level. this was noisy and the ambiance felt different - loud, rushed, far from the windows. Definitely request a table by the window or at least on the lower level. The food is great - we had the eggplant appetizer which was our favorite, a fried mushroom with asparagus appetizer over which was poured a too-sweet cinnamon sauce, a the glass noodle appetizer that had almost no noodles. Three of us shared the beef combo for three which was ample, really too much food altogether. It's fun to have the beef cooked at the table. Overall, a positive experience, particularly, the first time around.
Had the tasting menu. Was delicious but a lot of food. Can’t wait to go back!
We love this restaurant. The staff is attentive and able to answer all our questions about the grilling menu. We tried a sampling of meats and veggies on the BBQ grill. Delicious.
Nice place and awesome view!
food was so tasty.. the desert was so good. sweet, not too sweet light but so tasty..the server were very nice and attending.. will go back again
the staff is not friendly, and attentive to people from abroad.
We are French and booked for 40 years of my husband D-Day to be in your establishment ... We did not have a nice table with a nice view, the meal was shipped without any advice or care. A place not to recommend, or you pay very expensive but very poorly received.
Very romantic locale for dinner or drinks with wonderful NYC scenery.
Service was not good at all.
Phenomenal views and even better food
This is my 3rd visit. I had dinner there twice, 1st time went there for lunch (weekday). it seemed a busy day although they didn't open the inner circle section, I see only 2 servers on the floor.
Food is overall good as same as my previous visits. Service is slow as usual. I enjoyed the city view very much :) if you come here for dinner and want to enjoy the view, you need to time wisely and sit down before the sunset.
It was so good
We went there for dinner and had a later reservation. The service was mediocre, it seemed that the staff was annoyed.
The BBQ tables in corners and by windows where the views are good are worth requesting.
We would go again.
Everything good but meat quality not so sure. We ordered barbecue for 2 and I found the meat very fatty.
