    Indisputably one of Chicago’s best restaurants — and that’s saying something. Jeong’s tasting menu is a tour de force from Chef Dave Park…one of the country’s top talents. Chef Park’s flavors will be refreshing to many diners who aren’t used to Korean dining. Jeong’s salmon tartare is the best on the planet (and many will have seen this dish as one of Chicago’s iconic plates) but I want to point out two other courses: (1) the sea bream with seaweed broth (miyuk), celtuce (like celery lettuce) and house-made chili crisp is exquisite and (2) Chef Park’s desserts and pre-desserts. Desserts of this caliber are usually created by pastry wizards with their own celebrity, but Chef Park is a phenom on both savory and sweet dishes…so this tasting menu is all him end-to-end. Oh and he’s also created a terrific wine pairing for those who know how much the right drink means to a great dinner. Put all of Dave’s kitchen magic in a room with Jennifer Tran’s smile and her service team and you’ve got the best deal for a night out in chicago. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. However, the portions were small and half of our party left hungry. I called ahead to let them know about my food allergies and they were very accommodating, but I have to say I was quite disappointed when the replacement of my scallop dish was a piece of squash. It still tasted good, but needless to say the value of squash is way less than seafood and this was a very expensive meal. If you have food allergies for any of the main items on the menu, I'd say skip it till the menu changes.

    We went to Jeong to celebrate a family member’s birthday. The environment was nice and every staff was friendly. The food was awesome. For every dish, as the staff set the food in front of us, the incredible aroma filled our nostrils, which I think was really a key part of the dining experience. The food was flavorful but at the same time light, satisfying our taste buds, stomach, and mind. The cocktail we got was great, but I was more surprised by their non-alcoholic drinks.

    The restaurant is so beautiful. The high of the night for me would be the salmon and the pre dessert course. The salmon was a touch spicy and I loved it. Overall my favorite dis. The pre desert was a compressed melon. It was beautifully plated and very refreshing. I wish I could give a higher score since the food was overall good but sadly I can’t because one of the staff members used the bathroom and did not wash their hands afterwards. That is pretty unsanitary especially for working with food.

    JeongResponded on May 29, 2022Hi There! We are so pleased that you enjoyed the food and dining room! We are so sorry to have alarmed you! We have a separate employee restroom in the basement that we use. The staff member you saw in the restroom was simply doing the routine bathroom tidy checks(check on toilet paper, things on the ground, etc). We wash our hands in the kitchen after so we don't use the guest's soap and hand towels as well. Apologies for the confusion and we understand how that cant taint one's evening!

    I had a large group coming in from out of town and the staff at Jeong was super accommodating to my multiple reservation changes. I was so grateful as I didn't want to cancel. Thankfully, I didn't have to because we would have missed out an exceptional meal. Everyone in our group enjoyed the tasting menu as well as wine pairings. Don't sleep on the cocktail menu either. I enjoyed everything served to us but the dishes that leaned more to the Korean side were outstanding (maybe I'm biased being Korean). Service was spot on, ambiance was just right. Don't think about it - just make a reservation already.
