    JooDang is a great option for late night dining in SF. We enjoyed the fried chicken, truffle bulgogi and BBQ freshwater eel. The soju cocktails were refreshing and delicious. The space has a modern and clean aesthetic and the service was friendly and responsive. We will definitely return.

    One of my favorite places to go for a friends dinner or date night! Amazing food and the price point is perfect! Items can be shared or enjoyed on their own! Staff is always so friendly and nice! I love coming in and chatting it up with them! Fun spot in the heart of the TL.

    Miso risotto has an amazing depth of flavor. For me, could have used a little more salt / miso. The scallops and beef tartare were incredible! Nice crunchy and juicy textures with both. I loved the sweet Korean pancake. The crunch of the pancake against the cold sweet milky restaurant made ice cream left me wanting more. Would definitely go with more people next time as there were other dishes I wanted to try

    Food took over an hour to arrive after ordering, and the dishes were lackluster especially for their price. Only the udon was worth trying. They also added an automatic 20% gratuity, which we did not appreciate because we did not have a good experience.

    Painfully slow... we sat at the bar and a server never came to take our order. Finally flagged down the host and ordered 4 dishes. We were not asked if we wanted to order drinks or given a drink menu, though I saw cocktails being prepared. Those 4 dishes took almost an hour to come out. It was depressing sitting at the bar watching the 2 chefs cook dish after dish, and then seeing them go to other tables.. They need more than 2 chefs but the kitchen is also extremely tiny. Food was good probably because we were famished by the time it arrived. Portion sizes were very small. Left still hungry and if we wanted to order enough to be full we would have been there all night. Server kept ungracefully reaching in between my friend and I to clear plates rather than going around us. At the end of our meal, server did not come clear plates for at least 20 minutes. She finally asked if we wanted dessert and then brought the check. No sound treatment meant that the place was loud, echo-y and you had to shout to have a conversation.They have some kinks to work out.

    Saw this place on IG and was really hoping it was worth the hype. It wasn't. The food was trying a bit too hard when it was just okay. The pricing, a little bit cringey considering the edamame and the udon noodles came from frozen grocery store bought packaging. Yes, we saw it. We sat at the bar and saw them prep our order. We ordered: Edamame: flavorful but ate dry, maybe because it was cooked from frozen. Kanpachi Truffle: Maybe it's just my preference, but I prefer my kanpachi a bit chilled, not room temp. It ate a bit mushy for my taste. Korean Fried Chicken: it was not fried chicken, it was 6 pcs of chicken wings. 6 PCS for $17!. Creamy Kimchee stir fry: 3 pcs of shrimp, a sprinkle of bacon, did not notice any seasonal vegetable, but there was microgreen garnish. If you've had the creamy japanese udon, it's similar to this with just a dollop of kimchee on top. It was okay, but not $24 okay. Wagyu Bibimbap: tasted like any other bibimbap. Our meal could've also been paced much better. The edamame and kanpachi came out quick. My main udon dish came out the same time as the chicken wings and then there was a good 15-20 minute wait for the bibimbap to come out. Service was good though, they were attentive and very nice. There were 2 drinks that we wanted but they were out of it, and to make up for it, they gave us 2 free drink vouchers when we come back... IF we come back. Also, there's an automatic 18%-20% service charge added to your bill. I checked their website and there was no mention of this. In a time when everyone is experiencing tip fatigue, it would've been nice to know in advance that we didn't have a choice in the matter. Especially when the food was mediocre at best.

    Food influencer shining terribly bright light all night, asked waiters to please ask her to stop... did nothing. Food was fine, not great (edamame was the exception - delicious!).
