We enjoyed the food and the service was very good. The Korean version of steak tartare was amazing.

I’ve been here over a dozen times and everything on the menu is excellent - from the appetizers to dessert. Somewhat Westernized yet still authentic, if that makes sense.

This was my second time at the restaurant and it was absolutely amazing. I got the filet mignon, shrimp, and assorted vegetable platter. I would suggest having the vegetables cooked before you get them and the meat was tender and very flavorful. The staff is also very polite and caring, always there when you need them. I'd definitely recommend this place to a friend and even come back here myself.

I made a reservation for my uncle when he was in town. The reservation started at 4 and when more of their friends wanted to join, the restaurant allowed them to grow to a party of 9. Great service! It was everyone’s first time having Korean BBQ and they had a blast. Thanks Bann!

Bann is a great find through Yelp. The entire staff is polite, attentive & accommodating.. Both the food & wine menus are well thought out. The calamari appetizer was light, sweetly spicy & tender. We also enjoyed the (healthful) bi bim bap in the hot stone bowl, as well as the dae ji kalbi (the well-seasoned pork was cooked perfectly) which was recommended by our waiter. There were no empty tables by 8pm on a Monday. However, it'd be better to relocate the restaurant entrance to 50th St, instead of its plaza center position which is easily missed. Next time we'll barbecue. Highly recommend.

The food was average, the ambiance was pleasant, and the food took a while, to the point we had to rush out to make our show, even though we sat down and hour and a half before needing to leave.

This was the first time all four of us was trying Koren food. We all agreed it was very good and a fun dining experience. There were a few things that stood out. The beef tartar was excellent. The ahi tuna, served on ice in the shape of a bowl, also excellent. The scallop appetizer was served on fire-a fun surprise. We ordered the small dinner for the table which included, shrimp, salmon, rid eye and sliced beef. You cook the food right at the table. My one complaint would be that the sides they include in that dinner were not enough for four. The brocoli was only enough for one.
Prices are a bit high but would still recommend.

Bann continues to be a great Korean restaurant. My request to the restaurant on my Open Table reservation was simple: the usual excellent food and service. Bann did not disappoint. It was a relatively simple meal. We shared two appetizers, Dae Ji Jim (baby pork ribs) and Bann Garibi (a minced sea scallop and mushroom mousse), followed by a rice dish, Dol Sot Bi Bim Bap with beef. This was followed by a chocolate cake and ice cream (it was a birthday dinner, after all). As usual, service was excellent.

We had a great dinner. It was our first time going our for Korean food, and the waiter helped us understand the menu and gave us specific guidance on how much and what to order. We had the tuna grill and the miso cod. Both were excellent and the portion sizes were large and the tuna was really fresh. We both had an excellent meal.

After we got our food we never saw our server again. We wanted another round of drinks but that never happened. Pork buns pretty good but rice bowl with beef had barely any beef at all, just a few tiny pieces, smaller than a postage stamp. Very expensive for the quality, and being ignored by waitstaff.

With fish, meats and vegetables you can cook yourself at the table, Bann can be a pleasurable change from other restaurants. The ingredients are fresh and the service is thoughtful, but our last two visits were overshadowed by parties of raucous diners so loud it was impossible to have a conversation. Unfortunately the staff did nothing to advise them to keep it down in deference to other guests.

My fiancé and I went for a pre-theatre dinner and had a really good meal. We shared the beef tartare and the chicken steamed buns. The steamed buns were good but the tartare was a little lacking. It still got finished but I would skip it next time. For entrees we got the Bokkum Bop and the Bann Gooksu and both were really good. The service was well paced and speedy enough for pre-theatre. We would definitely return.
