This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - The Michelin Guide says the "well-trained service team and very talented kitchen" at Kristalbelli are "turning up the heat" at this "sexy" Midtown restaurant. Kristalbelli showcases the full range of authentic and robust Korean flavors and also spotlights the delicate aspects of Korean cuisine. Kristalbelli boasts an utterly fresh, tasty and clean experience, with only highest quality ingredients cooked atop each table on smokeless convex crystal grills. Kristalbelli’s elegant atmosphere and upscale cuisine make it the ideal destination for a romantic night out.

Got to the restaurant. Sign posted on door: "Kristabelli is temporarily closed." Major disaster for carefully planned evening. Stay away.

I think the restaurant had great customer service and good food. Wish the wine list was a little more extensive for by the glass. Liked the fact that the waiter let me taste a different wine so I knew for sure which one I wanted.

It's always on my top 5 to visit. First visit for my girl friend and she had such a wonderful time. Love their food, unique and one of a kind. Very special, amazing tasty. Their aged steak melted right in the mouth. Excellent services. Now it becomes my girl friend must go restaurant. Yes, it's pricy but well worth every penny. Slightly disappointed since their pasty chief left and only very ordinary choice for desserts. Other than that, a very enjoyable and satisfied night. Thank you.

Restaurant is understaffed
Service lacking
Maitre'd moonlighting as server and cook
Ignored for the first 15mins after seated.

This is the second time visiting Kristalbelli and I loved it even more the second time around. Highly recommended for the delicious food and tasty drinks. We went upstairs to Jugo lounge and had a great time there as well.

Went there for Valentines Day, pricy but very good food. They accommodated my boyfriend's shellfish allergy. Service was good but a little rushed, you could tell they needed to turn tables. The desert could have been a little more wow. The meat was incredible.

terrible service on the 2nd floor. if you ask for more side dishes, the waiter suggest you to eat other side dishes. Servers forget to bring new spoons for desserts. Poured sauce on my coat. Burned the crystal grill. So many things to list. Not worth spending money. Regardless, i gave them a standard percentage tip, knowing i will not come back. To be precise, my first dining experience on the first floor area was quite amazing. don't ever go to the second floor.

The overall experience at Kristalbelli was very good. The waiters were on top of making sure everything was good for my friend and I. Just one downfall was the seasoning of the pork belly. It was slightly salty for my taste. But all in all I would definitely go back even after NYC restaurant week ends.

We made a reservation for 6:30, we arrived on time and ordered a bottle of champaign and 2 dinner set. The waiters are generally nice but they gave us our check without asking at 8:15pm, and when we told them that we still would like to order more drinks and food, they refused to serve us and told us to go to the bar upstairs because they had to give our table to their 9pm reservation. The food and place are very nice but felt rush and unwelcome.
