Every course in the seven-course tasting menu was terrific. And the accompanying wines were also great, although the pours seemed a little small.

One of our most favorite Restaurants. This is the fourth time that we dined in, and it is always a great time! We’ve never felt disappointed. The quality of food and the service has been consistently amazing, which you may not find in many other restaurants. Do try The wine pairing, they have one of the most exciting wine selection to pair with the scrumptious food. If you don’t love Jeong, we don’t know where else you would be happy :D

Jeong in a nutshell: The room is stunning; the service is warm the food is amazing. I’ve enjoyed Jeong many time (enthusiastically), but always find a new surprise each time I visit.

Last night’s tasting was a great reminder of new surprises. As a reminder, at the moment Jeong has no a la carte menu, so you put yourself in the hands of Chef Dave Park and enjoy the ride. This is definitely a good thing — cause Chef Dave knows how to drive!

* Mul Hwe (spicy fish soup) with kanpachi gazpacho and Korean melon is a stunning start — bright and refreshing and tartness from the melon. Don’t let the “spicy” scare you — it’s just the right amount of warmth

* Salmon tartare — one of the most talked about and loved dishes in Chicago…for good reason. Just the right amount of lush + crunch + tart

* Scallop with clementine beurre blanc, spinach namul and roe. Without question the best scallop sear I’ve found in my life

* Mandu dumpling — this is where the spice engine gets revved up. It’s fantastic. I could eat 50.

* Wagyu and omelet — the most amazing steak & eggs. An elevated classic

*. Pear, Korean yogurt, lemon — a new “surprise” as Chef Dave evolves the menu. Delicious.

* Barley / Chocolate — another new dessert. Chef is known for his savory creations, but he’s a dessert phenom too.

Jeong was an exceptional dining experience. The service was friendly, helpful, and just extra mile in working with us. The food was exceptional - all seven courses were balanced in flavors and textures. The environment is lovely and relaxing.

I highly recommend Jeong. I can't say enough good about the staff and their service. The exceptional food, wine, and environment were elevated by their knowledge and warmth.

The food is absolutely fantastic. Best Salmon tartare I’ve ever had. The Waygu steak with caramelized onion and shiitake mushroom purée lit up my mouth like the 4th of July. It’s expensive, but worth every penny. Go.

What a gem. We love this restaurant. Celebrated our sons birthday. Servings are a little on the small side, especially for hungry young men. Very creative takes on Korean food. Elegantly served.
Service was very friendly, but very slow to take off. It took a good 15 minutes from we were seated before we were acknowledged by a server. We did get water but sort of strange to sit so long without a menu or a greeting.
We noticed some tables got excellent service and our neighbor table were offered a second serving of the main course so we had thought we would as well, especially since all the men at our table were still hungry. Some of the descriptions to us for the food was lacking but then we eavesdropped with our neighboring table, who seemed to get all the attention the other tables lacked. We did the wine pairing which was very interesting, but it is disappointing that the wine is not poured at the table and we cannot see the bottles and labels. Hopefully that will be better next time.
The ambience was very nice and one of the nicest in Chicago. With a setting so intimate it was annoying that our neighbor table decided to loudly facetime/skype with other people. Not the fault of the restaurant but it does affect the experience of other patrons.
We will be back - the food is totally worth it, and we hope that the service will be more on par with the rest of the experience next time.

We celebrated my brother's bday at Jeong and it was such a wonderful experience! All the staffs were so welcoming and pleasant. The food was outstanding. The ambiance was very enjoyable- dimmed, spaced out enough that you don't over hear the neighbors next to you, and love the decors. The only thing that was unexpected was that the menu on OpenTable is differ from when we arrived (I always check due to allergies) but they double confirmed about allergies and because the menu was different, I really enjoyed the surprise! They even celebrated MY bday also which is at the end of the month and gave me a delicious gift to take home (along with my bro, of course)! Not only is Jeong decadent, but everyone there is so passionate about their customers and in what they do. We highly recommend and will be returning soon! :)

Jeong isn’t just a restaurant, it’s an experience! The evening begun with a bubbly warm greeting from the hostess. The restaurant is very small, about 8 tables so the atmosphere is very intimate. The menu is a pre fixed tasting which makes it so simple and uncomplicated. Each course was brought out and described to us in detail. The food was beautiful and so interesting and delicious! It’s the best meal and experience I’ve ever had. Don’t miss Jeong!!!
