    This was my fourth time dining here, but the first for my spouse. We had an enjoyable evening. He was especially taken with the amazing skyline and river views. Our servers were all very kind and helpful and the tables are nicely spaced. We enjoyed the japchae noodles and BBQ duck grilled at the table, though the mixed grilled vegetables we also ordered were a bit dull since everything tasted the same (the mushrooms were tastiest). It also took a very long time to get a second glass of wine. In any event, this is a great choice for a special occasion—or just a nice evening out—and we would definitely return.

    Go early if you want a more intimate time with that special someone, or a bit later in the day if you want to have a more vibrant feel to the room. The kitchen is willing to accommodate dietary restrictions if you're polite about how you ask, so don't be afraid to get the 5-course tasting menu even if one or two of the courses don't fit your diet.

    Overpriced. Wagyu was good. Duck was terrible for $48. It was cooked almost like teriyaki chicken. I've been there a few times before the pandemic. This last experience has been a shock. The value of dining has increased 10 fold and quality has declined big time. You don't get the bang for your buck at all.

    Wonderful birthday evening! Very-well organized welcoming at the building entrance - one elevator by reservation. Arrived 30 minutes earlier than our booking time, and could be seated right away at our Window table. Service was attentive and very professional. Food was refined and delicious. Got a special birthday plate in addition to the dessert. View was outstanding! Would recommend it for sure !!!!

    First time to try the Chef’s Tasting Menu and we were not disappointed. As always, the staff at GAONNURI are attentive and truly focused on making your meal memorable. Window table allowed us a beautiful view of New York City from the 39th floor as we enjoyed a five-course menu that was diverse in flavors and well portioned. The strip steak and short ribs course was memorable and will be on our list for future visits.

    Overall it was a good experience. The food did not disappoint. We ordered the steak set, black cod, and bibimbap. Additionally we tried the tuna tartar, fried chicken, and veg dumplings.. All were delicious. Portions are small, but we all left satisfied. We were taking our daughter out for her 21st birthday (actually on that night). I had mentioned it several times, and tried to get a seat near the window but we were put in the dead center of the room and they did not remember her birthday. My biggest issue was that we were rushed. Staff came to our table seemingly every minute and a half to ask if we were ready... and when we said no they said no problem and kept coming by. I would describe Gaonnuri as more of a corporate type of restaurant. I would come back and recommend but only if I had a window seat as we did not get the full experience.

    Waiter accidentally (fully understand that accidents happen) tipped over an entire glass of water, saturating my colleague's shirt and pants. Not a single word of apology. We used our linen napkins to mop up the water (including cleaning the floor). When I asked for fresh napkins, the same waiter gave us three small paper cocktail napkins. First time I have ever had Korean bbq where the small side dishes were not replenished. Despite the spectacular review, would not return and would not recommend.

    I took an arch. and partner for a great experience....and we felt completely rushed and there was no finese when waiter was cooking. Having now going to Genesis House restaurant, that may be my go to for upscale Korean food. Gaonurri makes it too difficult and impersonal service.

    We had a wonderful view from our table. We had the nakji bokum appetizer which was spot on. We ordered the premium meal and the beef was of good quality and cooked well. But that’s as far as it went. The side dishes and stew were pretty lack luster and needed much more attention to flavor

    Dinner at Gaonnuri is always a treat. The restaurant is spacious, the view spectacular. The table are well spaced out. One feels safe eating in this restaurant. The food is incredibly yummy. We had barbecued beef and duck. Each of them cooked to perfection on the grill of the table. We also had delicious beef dumpling. The staff is so friendly and efficient. The service is fast. We go there every Friday!!

    Some of the most overpriced, mid quality meats I've ever had. Ended up spending $500ish on a dinner for two - got the A5, 21 day aged ribeye, A5 bibimbap, and a bottle of prosecco. The server burnt & overcooked the 21 day aged ribeye, and the A5 in the bibimbap was left to cook to well done as well. The A5 was decent but definitely was not worth $135 for 6oz. Pretty terrible.
