I’m glad I didn’t book my birthday party here. The place is stunning, and our server was adorable and wonderful. There was a delicious cocktail with marshmallows on top. That’s where it ended. Our table was in a hallway and it was chilly by the window. The food was far less than expected. The lobster appetizer tasted like a frozen dish you’d pop in the oven for family members you don’t like. The sashimi was ok, not worth the price tag, the steak was cold, the rock shrimp just meh. Lastly, the volcanic dessert was underwhelming and not worth the calories. Our wine came in at $36 a glass, though we thought we saw it as $18. Our nearly $400 bill made us wishing we’d gone somewhere else and had a good meal.

It was our first time here and we went for the winterlicious menu. The winterlicious menu was mediocre. My wife ordered the salmon and there was 4 tiny this slices that would have been equal to one slice of salmon at a normal restaurant. Overall the food was ok, value was poor, but ambiance was good.

Service was good but food was average for the price. Owner’s from New York and head chef is Korean - this is translated in the ambience/vibe and the cooking style, respectively. The place has a posh look and feel; however, small details are lacking (e.g. my pair of chopsticks were not the same length as the tip is broken). The food has bold flavours which is appreciated but the entree was too salty. The dessert was the highlight of the evening.

By far one of the worst experience in “fine” dining. The food was not good but that’s not the biggest problem. The waitress was too busy flirting with the table beside us. Perhaps she expected them to give her more tip. But the service we got was horrible. The utensil were never change d for us and appetizer plates were not taken off our table when the main courses arrive. The waiter who brought my soup spilled it on my pants. And when I asked for a cup of hot water I had to ask twice and waited 20 minutes for it. By the very end of the meal, I’ve received a notification asking me why I have not showed up to my reservation? Very very disappointing experience, never will be coming back.

Winterlicious serving sizes are cut in half, and customer service from the manager is non-existent.

We paid close to $70 with tip for 4 tiny slices of salmon, 4 spoonfuls of butter lamb rice, and rancid cheesecake. The whole point of Winterlicious is to give customers a good value for a three/four course meal on regular sized/priced menu items. If you will be reducing your menu items to reflect the discount price, please don't participate in Winterlicious as it would be cheaper to just go on a regular night, pay regular price, and get more food.

Regular menu better than the winterlicious one.
Recommend hot stone beef, kind of BBQ but different with normal. Grilled whole sea bass taste a little bit sweet, topping with spring sprouts make this dish taste fresh, tender fish meat, velvety smooth.

Everything was super greasy. Salmon appie had too much oil. Lamb dish was mostly greasy rice and a small yet fatty piece of lamb. The chocolate dessert was very good! My friend disliked the matcha cheesecake. We were super disappointed by the quality. And sitting upstairs felt like we weren’t even in a Yorkville restaurant. No ambiance. We weren’t offered a glass of wine till after our entree arrived. Just overall disappointing.

Really loved this place. The menu is designed for sharing plates , but I found that the rice and noodle options were large enough to have one as a main.

Service was great, food was excellent ( I reccomend the waygu fried rice). A really great Yorkville option. I’ll defintely be back.

We went for our son’s birthday dinner. He is a New Year’s Eve baby. There was a preset menu. It was a lot of food! The server was very nice.
Having made the dinner reservation early in December and also having stated that it was a birthday dinner I was surprised with an empty restaurant at 6:00pm that we were sat at a table beside the kitchen next to another occupied table. I asked to be moved to a booth that wasn’t even being used until the 8:00pm! Very poor on the restaurant ‘s part!!!

First when we arrived the concierge didn't get our coat despite asking for it and seeing that they were taking the coats of the folk in front of us... later we asked for suggestion for sake; finally we ended up with a pitcher (not the original bottle) of a diluted "sake"!
Overall, very unpleasant experience and will never go back again.

Service was great to start - then our waiter seemed to loose track of us. Long wait the bill.
Fried chicken was delicious but the maki was sloppy. We had the spicy tuna & soft shell crab. Both were just ok.

Excellent food

The girl seating us did roll her eyes at me when I asked to be seated somewhere other than the back corner with the cash register. People like that really give restaurants a bad rap.

Other than that 5 stars all the way.
