Honey Butter Chips
with Spicy Soy Vinaigrette
with Pine Nuts
Delicious and inventive menu and drinks. I'd say phenomenal.
A feast for the Seoul. Try anything and everything on the menu. The compositions and flavors are worth experimenting on. Make sure to leave room for dessert.
The food is great even the portion is relatively small!
Everything was awesome highly recommended!!!!
Inventive yet familiar riffs on Korean cuisine done with great detail, creativity, tastiness, subtlety, and quality. Their transformative take on Korean standards is both refreshing, sometimes surprisingly adventurous, but always in tune with the tastes and complexities of what I/we grew up loving and expecting ‘at home’…
Awesome service, very friendly, helpful, attuned, accommodating to our requests. Will definitely be back again and look forward to what OIJI becomes when they move to their new digs. Hope they can keep the signatures and continue evolving new variations. Highly recommend to Korean traditionalists, newbies, and gastro-adventurers all!
- Scallops Hwe was impeccable in balance, texture, flavors with addictive cucumber broth
- Baby Octopus with gochujang butter was a winner (just the sauce was garlicky in itself; but perfect in collab with the pan-fried octopus)
- OIJI bowl is a must (nori rice was a great accompanist to the uni and amaebi!)
- Torched-Wagyu with tasty bathing and raw egg was very special!
- Oxtail was succulent with a subtle kalbijim reference (for our table’s tastes, it could’ve used a kick of finely sliced Thai chili peppers to bring heat and fruitiness)
- Bone marrow was good marriage of unctuousness, combo of textures creamy through lightly crispy with lightly-brightly flavored (as in over-toned) rice crisps.
- Signature dessert is trip-worthy
It was great high-end Korean dining experience. Loved the service and every staff’s kindness. I’d definitely visit again.
Must save room for the honey chips and ice cream at the end!! One of my fav desserts EVER.
I'd like Oiji bowl and the lobster in Chili Lobster. They are fresh and taste good. However, for me, the Scallops "Hwe" is too salty and I do not like the sweet taste of Bone Marrow though I have to admit their combinations are novel and good. BTW, the food size is small, pay attention to this for guy's dining.
I just dislike the first outdoor seating area which is really cramped and I find a pile of noodle beside the desk at the dark side. I would try the indoor area if I would come next time.
Fit for foodies, a very eclectic menu. Dessert was delicious
We always enjoy this place. The mushroom salad is excellent. We also had the hamachi, the shrimp and the chicken. Very non-traditional Korean food
Amazing food, and interesting flavor profile / texture
10/10! One of the best dining experiences.
Amazing food as always - this is my first review but not the first time I've been. Outdoor dining is tough to work around (hence the ambiance rating) but overall Oiji staff and chefs do a great job of handling the situation.
I found a half foot long peice of PLASTIC in our foie gras dish. I COULD HAVE CHOCKED on it! I told the waiter, he quickly took it away before I could take a picture of that dish. Threa st they could have done was to not charge us the dish, WE WERE CHARGED FULL PRICE, no discount what so ever. Unacceptable. would have not felt upset or left this one star review if they were professional and had courtesy to remove this dish from our bill.
Amazing food and perfect for our get-together. Even with
An absolutely odyssey of Korean flavors that I will be looking to repeat as much as possible.
the food here is not cheap but it is insanely yummy, cocktails are good too and service was very attentive! We had our own little outdoor pod and had a really lovely dinner. Truly no complaints!
Amazing, creative food. One of my favorite places I’ve eaten.
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.
Fantastic experience - enjoyed the food so much and the atmosphere!!
Great food, as always. Attentive service. A wonderful meal
The Best meal I have ever had!
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
Perfect from start to finish! A thoughtful approach to food and place to eat.
Food are good but portions are too small.. thus overpriced
Amazing food and service. Thank you!
Amazing food, amazing service, and amazing outdoor dinning with air conditioning in the Summer!
Great food and service. I always recommend Oiji to friends!
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.
Very unique and tasty dishes. Took my family here and they loved it. The staff are extremely accommodating and friendly. The private outdoor space is beautifully done and even has private ac.
Food excellent and creative. Drinks good but maybe overhyped. Wait staff excellent and informative. Would certainly go back and recommend.
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.
Great service, the waiter was incredibly knowledgeable about all of the food and drink options which added significantly to the experience. The food was 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.
The food was amazing especially the Wagyu seared at the table.
Food was generally good, cocktails were very good
Food was good and interesting. Only complaint would be that we were sitting indoor table and it was pretty hot.
