Really enjoyed our experience. We chose to share plates from the à la carte menu including a surprising and delicious rice desert. If I lived in Chicago I would be a regular here. Great and friendly service and a thoroughly enjoyable evening

Fantastic date night dinner. Elevated Korean food was exceptionally composed with each presentation offering subtle reminders of traditional "comfort food" dishes. Did the tasting menu with wine pairing which matched quite well with each course. Would highly recommend and we look forward to going back soon.

Ate every drop of every dish. Too many great dishes to choose from. Did the tasting, but will be back for an a la carte adventure. PS. If you like Hi-Chew candies check out the dessert menu. Make room it's all worth it.

What a great ambitious and inviting new restaurant serving Korean influenced food in a unique way. Great vibe to the place. Intriguing and beautifully prepared craft cocktails and we chose all vegetarian dishes off the ala carte menu and they could not have been any tastier.

They customized their tasting menu for pescatarians which was highly appreciated. Everything tasted delicate and well thought out. The portions were smaller than I’ve had for a tasting menu but I still loved the experience. The service was excellent.

This place never disappoints. Another great meal. Love that this place has fine dining food without the stuffy fine dining feel. It’s all about the food. The chocolate cake is a must try. So heavenly. Congratulations Dave, Jennifer, and staff.

Our experience at Jeong was fantastic. The entire staff was friendly and attentive. Great ambience. We had the tasting menu and it was delicious!!! Our favorites were the scallop and the salmon tartare. The only thing we noted was that the American wagyu, although tasty, was stringy. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested on a modern take on Korean food.

My wife and I got the tasting menu and everything we had was generally hood but with that said the overall experience was not mindblowing for a restaurant of this price point. The stand out dishes were the duck and the beef. I think the Korean inspired angle should be more prominent in the food. Again it was good but I would not be in a rush to go back.

My second time there, got the tasting menu and every dish was on point. My date also got the tasting menu, and on the fly requested dairy free, which they accommodated without hesitation. Still salivating over the salmon, the really freaking big (and delicious) scallop, and that steak. Cannot wait to return.

The tasting menu was mostly tasty but I wasn't impressed for the price with the wine pairing. The scallop was the standout course. They were able to make a dietary substitution which was great. The service also felt a little rushed. I think we were out in an hour and fifteen minutes. If you haven't been I'd still recommend to keep it on your list to try.

We came to the place for a friend’s birthday. I was surprised by the service quality here given that the restaurant is quite high end. First of all our waitress didn’t explain the menu AT ALL, didn’t check on us throughout the meal, and put the check on our table at the end without us even asking for it.

Usually the service staff would at least say a happy birthday after knowing this is a celebration dinner. She had no reaction whatsoever and was indifferent and mean the whole time. We felt not welcomed there.

I am sure this is probably just an individual event, and doesn’t reflect the staff there as a whole. But still it’s frustrating to deal with on a Friday night for a special occasion.

Fine dining food but corner street store service, probably won’t come back.

The food flavors were outstanding. However the portions are small and prices are high. I think they need to increase their portion sizes or lower their prices. Also it's not very vegetarian friendly; lots of meat options. We are trying to eat less meat now so would prefer more seafood and vegetables on the menu. Limited menu over all. Not sure I'll go back until their menu increases in options.

Outstanding chef and service. The menu is innovative, the plates small, and presentation is minimalist. Order more dishes for a large appetite. A place for special dates. Reserve in advance as it seems always booked. One of the best in Chicago.

Small portions for what you pay. Also I know this is very specific, but the smaller plates come in pieces of 3 (3 items per plate). For a restaurant with mostly 2-tops, I feel like they should probably stick to even numbers. Just saying. Super tasty though.

The chefs choice with wine pairings was a great option but didn’t include the items we really wanted to try. We added them and they were our favorite dishes! The mackerel and short ribs were phenomenal and the salmon tartare excellent. I loved the little rice pearls. If we come back it will probably be for the ala carte menu.
