Amazing amazing amazing! Everything was mind blowing, from the second you sit down and communicate with the host to every bite you take. Signature menu is truly the way to go to experience the culinary journey.

Firstly, the food is good! But there is not good for celebrate special day! Because it’s too noisy! We are seated in a meeting room that there are two parties and another couples. I reserve the restaurant for my husband’s birthday, we most prefer delicious food and comfortable ambiance, but we are seated with a big party that talking loudly and laugh loudly, that’s too noisy! And every course coming too slow. We wait too long for finish per course. I don’t think we will come back and recommend. Sorry for that.

Our first experience at Jungsik was so extraordinary that we had to return again the following week..(yes, it was that good). We tried the seasonal menu this visit and in addition added some of our favorites..the octopus and tuna kimbap.
Once again we had an incredible meal. Tim and George helped to make the evening perfect. Kudos to them!
Looking forward to return soon to try the fall menu.
Jungsik has quickly become one of my favorite restaurants in NYC.

This was a memorable meal, which began with the best Manhattan I've ever had, and I've had a few. The Signature tasting menu was creative, varied, with unusual and fascinating combinations of flavors, textures, and presentations. We chose the more costly wine pairing, which we shared. One of the wines was a bit boring, the rest were quite remarkable. Excellent service in a quiet, spacious, friendly room.

Not normally wowed by tasting menus at restaurants, but JungSik was a pleasant surprise, from decor to service and especially the food.

Restaurant is minimally decorated which makes for a nice soothing atmosphere to enjoy company and food. Service staff were very nice and explained each tasting item.

A bit pricey as most high end NYC tasting menus, but excited to go back for a special occasion.

The tasting menu is very well structured, creative and of superb quality, wine options are plenty and the service is attentive, ambiance of the place is New York like but a little more privacy would be nice.

The food was very fun! you get to taste so many different things which is my fav thing to do! the presentation is also fun and beautiful. Every food has such interesting texture, some are crunchy some are silky... :) However they're just like great french restaurant, not really sure if it needs to be "korean" and up scale. Dessert was a bit disappointing.

This is a 2 star Michelin restaurant. So needless to say, the ambiance, service, food and wine is lovely. I would especially recommend the amuse bouche to begin, the octopus and any of the seafood dishes. For dessert, I especially enjoyed the Strawberry Garden which included a basil sorbet. Our sommelier, Carherine, did a fabulous job with the wine pairings, including a natural wine served with the braised/ grilled octopus. It was a very memorable evening.

This was an excellent upscale Korean restaurant with two Michelin stars that I find well-deserved. We dined to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were very satisfied. The food used concepts of Korean flavors elevated to gourmet presentation and creativity. Our waiter was most excellent - so polite and friendly. Summer tasting menu was excellent - highlights were the lamb chop, banchan, black cod; as well as the cocktails. One thing I disliked which is not necessarily the fault of the restaurant, are people dining in t-shirts alongside us celebrating a special occasion. I wouldn't mind a jacket only policy. Otherwise - great experience in this refined/minimalist designed spot.

Incredible modern Korean cuisine with French influences. Very delicious overall. Some of the best presentation I have ever seen and probably the very best meal from start to finish that I have ever experienced. Strongly recommended for special occasions given the steep price tag.

Tasting menu is around $230. Great amuse bouche. Felt little pressured to add drink, additional dishes other than tasting menu, desserts etc. Good overall but the price/quality(taste, number of dishes etc) ratio was neither so good nor so bad.

Jungsik is an exceptionally good restaurant. I have dined there twice so far, and not a single dish of the 15 or so that I tasted, was off. I consider it very much on par with Per Se, Le Bernardin and Eleven Madison Park.
