Food was incredible
We didn’t wait more than 2-3 minutes for each dish to come out
Service was professional, quick and pleasant
GAONNURI has definitel become one of my favorite high-end restaurants in NYC
Honestly, this place was very basic. It was only cool because of the view. If you want good Korean bbq I would recommend going elsewhere but if you want to go somewhere for a cool pic, then this is the place.
Really great experience with great service! Food was delish and the view spectacular. Just a bit pricey but that’s New York prices for you.
WONDERFUL restaurant! Service was great, food was delicious, and the VIEWS were absolutely breathtaking! First time customer at GAONNURI- will definitely be returning for future New York City trips!
Delicious. Pricey but worth it. Celebrated my birthday here and the meat and tuna tartare were spectacular.
Food was OK and service was decent. View was definitely amazing.
Good for business dinner.
Lovely experience and the view from the tables by the window is spectacular.
Kimchi was tasty but not spicy at all. If you don’t like it spicy, it won’t disappoint
Very nice staff
The view was good and the food was as well. The food is definitely worth the money, however at the end of the night I was hit with a surprise charge of $16 for water. That was definitely a “gotcha” charge as it isn’t on the menu and is ridiculously high. Felt really cheap and shady to me.
I love going to Gaonnuri, the food is always delicious, love the view and very friendly staff. This time however, the japchae was too salty and the banchan was less flavorful than usual, I hope it was only an off night and not a change for good. The meat was also marinated differently, seemed a little less flavorful too, it was very tasty though but not as much.
We had a table booked at 10pm. All ontime, nice set up.
They close the kitchen at 11pm which seems quite weird as we tried to get more rice to no available … it s a bit ridiculous to then let people arrive at 10pm.
Otherwise nice dinner
Nice environment, simple decor, good views. Food came promptly, good quality meat and worth the money ($58pp for a set). Bibimbap was quite good. Appetizers small portion but tasty.
Very good experience. Food was fine but location was better.
My boyfriend and I were looking for a restaurant with a view and Gaonnuri was amazing! The view was incredible, the servers were so kind, and the food was delicious.
I did a Korean bbq with my fiancé. Everything was incredible from the view to the food to the service. I highly recommend!
Great for a birthday dinner! Food and service is amazing :)
Great service, views and the food is amazing. Celebrated a birthday.
Excellent meal! Bbq and sides were all prepared perfectly! Desserts were impressive, the snickers and lava cake are a must!
Amazing as always
Great staff, amazing food, beautiful view at sunset
Josh who served us during our 9:00pm reservation, is an amazing person an human being, treat us if we’ve ever met before. ♥️
Last night we were celebrating our 20th Anniversary and we came from PR and choose Gaunori and was the best decision thanks to the charming treat and service , not forgetting the excellent food , warm place and many other qualities of the place..
Thanks to all the personnel but specially Josh, Jodo the guy from Guatemala and the lady Lilly… we felt BTS was hosting us …. 😉
Thanks for the Compliment at the last course with the written Happy Anniversary in the plate with the three scoops of delicious sorbets.
Excellent food. The steak was a bit fatty but everything else was fantastic from the service, ambiance and food. The cocktails were also good and some of the food melt in your mouth.
A great find. great place to take out of towers or for a romantic dinner. Very attentive service and good value.
The food was so unexpectedly delicious.. I will be back for sure. This place is a hidden gem!
Excellent food and service, and a matchless view.
My 1 year anniversary with my girlfriend. All around great customer services. The food was delicious. My girlfriend was so happy. They made it a very special night!
Wonderful to go back here
The food, service and view were all wonderful
One of the best Korean restaurant we’ve been to. Great customer service from the time we arrived until we left. We will be back again!
It was great. The view is nice, food is good, service is awesome even though one server spilled some water on my table nd my arm and didnt notice because he was walking so fast. Drinks was strong and the ambiance is very romantic.
This place is a joke…….
Firstly, we went there yesterday for our anniversary dinner for which I have made reservation 1 week earlier. I specifically asked them for a window sitting on the note but they failed to provide us with the window table.
Secondly, we had 2/3 server roaming around us they were not so friendly and not helpful at all with the menu. We order three cocktails, two appetizers and 2 gaon sets (our first server told us that we have to get our individual sets) , nothing spectacular about the food. We started with two appetizers they were just okay, we got our bbq set after that and it was a joke, the sides/ banchan that came along bbq set was way below average. We started with rib eye and rest of the meat we had them to go. Couldn’t even enjoy our meal properly. Regarding the food, other local Korean restaurant on 32nd street are way better than gaonnuri. On our way out we wanted to take a photo in the lobby but the host was rude he just wanted us out of the building.
Only good thing is that they gave us complimentary dessert for our anniversary for which we left them 20% tips.
Exceptional!!! The place is fantastic, the service is top notch and the food is what you’re expecting to get from a fancy Korean bbq place :) Cant believe I haven’t heard of this place before!
A great place for a date night. Excellent menu option, great wine list and if the Madeleines are available for dessert, get them!
Waiter neglected to give me asian a menu.... my friends Caucasian received menu. Person who assisted barbaque was fantastic...... thus gave more than 20% tip. Waiter was non existence for end of meal when we wanted tea. Have been here many times before covid and disappointed in this waiter.
A gem in Manhattan! I don’t miss Korea anymore!!! My sanctuary!!
This is a lovely space, the service was attentive and usually available. MY only complaint is when you order a dish for $40 and the condiments are so mediocre, they need to adjust the quality and quantity of condiments as asides for the entree.
We also felt there was way to fast a sense of turnover.. slow down and let the patron enjoy your space.
Beautiful service, great food and made a birthday guys day extra special.
Beautiful space and amazing views. Very friendly bartender and host, although the server situation was hit and miss. But, delicious, interesting food!
We went here on a whim and it worked out in our favor. This restaurant has such a great view. The service was excellent and we loved the food. It's pricey, but what good NYC restaurant isn't?
The restaurant sign outside the building is a bit small and hard to pick out. Nice 39th floor view from almost every table. Great service by plentiful and courteous staff. Nice selection of food in all courses. Ribeye was a better choice than short rib barbecue meal. Finished off with excellent Carmel ice cream in a bed of flavorful crunch.
I’ll be back!
best view best food sean is best waiter great atmosphere
