We had one of the private outside rooms (AC and heat), so we felt comfortable and appreciated that covid precautions seemed great.
The menu was interesting, including cocktails, and the service was really excellent. We loved all of our food: beautiful presentation and delicious!
Highly recommend- we will be back.

Sampled pretty much everything except the oxtail and really enjoyed it. I think 5-6 dishes for a two people is just the right amount. You have to leave room for their dessert. Drinks are also excellent. They have done a great job with the outdoor booths which were comfortable even in 90 degree weather

We loved our wonderful dinner in a private, air conditioned outdoor cabin. Everything we tried was delicious, particularly the fried cauliflower and the honey chips dessert. Excellent service. We'll definitely be back!

The food here is fantastic! The fried chicken, the mushroom salad, the cauliflower, the Ssam platter. Highly recommended. Also, the cocktails are delicious and unusual. They have a huge soju list.
We ate in the individual rooms outside so it was quite quiet. The spaces are air conditioned, comfortable for what they are, if a little odd. I hope they get aired out in between...
The indoor dining space looks wonderful, lovely design and we look forward to being able to eat inside one day soon.

A nice place to have dinner. But I was disappointed with the food. My friend and I had 5 dishes. Foie gras and special dish wagyu were really nice. But I was not able to finish the bone marrow and Hwe. I did not like the texture of bone marrow. and the source of Hwe was not delicious.

Food is amazing. Ssam platter, fried chicken, and mushroom salad are our favorites. New outdoor seating makes it much easier to get a reservation since it's small inside.

Food and service are excellent!

Value is good, except for the wine and the cauliflower dish. Cauliflower is very good, but $17 is very high for this dish. The wine by the glass options are limited and not anything special, so $16 a glass seemed high.

Great place!

The food, as always, was delicious. The service not so much. We appreciate the 2 hour limit, but we were quite rudely informed that they were "concerned" about our table because we hadn't left yet (we had literally just paid and still had 15 minutes left on the clock). If you need your guests to leave, I am sure there are other more polite and friendly ways of letting them know instead of rudely telling them that you are "concerned". Or tell them that they have 1 hour and 45 minutes instead of 2 hours.
