As such, Ms. Yoo, named after Choi’s grandmother Jungok Yoo who taught her how to cook, is the culinary reverse of Choi’s mokbar eateries in Chelsea Market and Brooklyn, where authentic Korean food is infused with American accents. Still, like them, Ms. Yoo represents Choi’s ongoing campaign to encourage Americans to savor the Korean food and culture she so passionately embraces.

Good food. Good energy. Price is reasonable. Good for dates and hanging out with friends for a good time without breaking the bank. Happy hours are the best, obviously.
It was my anniversary. We loved it. Everything was perfect. The ambiance beautiful. I loved the floral arrangements around the bar. The drinks were amazinggggg. I ordered the chicken tacos, so crispy and the sauce was delicious. Perfect date night spot. Very intimate. I will return again. Thank you !
Nicely revisited korean dishes. Nice presentations. Definitely one of the best pork bellies I’ve had. Friendly staff.
The food was excellent. The Bao buns could have used a bit more sauce but everything else including the service was incredible.
Ms. Yoo has a small intimate first floor layout but it still feels like a clubstaurant... with music so loud you have to shout across the table and servers taking orders on iPads despite the fairly small seating area. There are only two wines on the menu, one red and one white. The red is a Robert Mondavi that can be purchased in a wine store for no more than $10. It is sold for $47/ bottle at Ms. Yoo. The unflavored Soju tastes very cheap and it took forever for us to be served our very unremarkable Bibimbap. From all four people who dined with Ms. Yoo... I don't think I single one of us would return although we did have fun laughing at the absurdity of it all.
Amazing food and great service! Can’t go wrong with anything you order but the pork buns, burger and wings are awesome!
Went for Valentines Day dinner. Really cute place. Good place to go for a date.
We somewhat randomly came upon Ms Yoo on open table and were intrigued by the menu. We were immediately taken by the fun decor, including a gazebo-like structure over the bar draped with faux flowers contrasted by rectangular neon lights in primary colors. Our experience only improved from there. We ordered an assortment of dishes to share between the two of us and LOVED everything. The brussels sprouts were a particular standout. It was a bit loud to carry on an in-depth conversation, and as it approached 11pm, the staff began to clear out the tables as the space transitioned from restaurant to more of a bar/club vibe. Nothing wrong with that, but good to know when you book a late dinner!
Great food and cocktails! Not a huge restaurant (as are most places in NY), so it was a bit noisy but still a great environment. Will definitely be revisiting!
Cute concept, but food was really overpriced and there was only one poor waiter. Took forever to get the food and drinks out. The place was also empty and they had a dj...so very strange ambiance.
Loved Ms. Yoo! They have a great happy hour and the food is absolutely delicious. Atmosphere is fun and trendy. They even had a live DJ! Will definitely be going back with my friends.
Chic quiet restaurant. Perfect for date nights. Great Cocktail menu!
Waiter was terrible, got orders wrong. Food came out late, forgot one of the orders. Food was cold. Had to continually ask for water. They seemed very disorganized.
The place was lovely and service was good. Noise level is a little high but the food well worth it.
Was one of the few places on open table available for a last minute res and I had been wanting to try it. Pleasantly surprised to find the portions were larger than expected - we actually had to cancel our last main entree because we were too full. Love the decor and the ambiance. Service was a little lackluster. I don't blame the staff for this. I felt they were as attentive as they could be but the restaurant seemed understaffed.
All in all, definitely recommend. Already planning my next trip!
The food was delicious (don’t miss the pork belly board) and so were the cocktails.The wine and beer selection could be better though.
Not many options on the menu but food was great nonetheless. The rice cake mac & cheese appetizer was our favorite part. Waiter forgot to put in appetizer and brought it to us after dinner was served. He apologized by discounting us 10% which was really nice of him.
Great DJ and ambiance.
Really fun spot with club-like feels and amazing food. The drinks could have been stronger and I wish there was more spacing between courses, but overall the staff was attentive and the music was great.
Went with a date for a early dinner, and the place was a bit empty. The waiter was nice but seemed to be slow in terms of servicing us for the food that we ordered and waiting for the check took forever. The food itself was very mediocre except for the wings. The bimibap was very soupy and its not the kind of bimibap that I'm used to. The decor was nice but the place is a lot smaller than the pictures, I doubt I'll be going back.
Great tasting food and great value and great service
Food was good but it was SO LOUD. As a group of only four, we had to basically scream to hear each other speak. Courses were improperly timed, some people were completely finished eating by the time others’ dishes had arrived, and they forgot about two of the things we ordered so we had to remind them.
Place has a nice designed, is comfortable, and clean. Food is Korean take on classic American staples... delicious. Staff is friendly and welcoming.
The food was good but they ran out of the entrees we really wanted to try
Went there for happy hour, the menu was really good value. The KFC wings were fantastic but some of the other dishes were abit hit and miss. Service was excellent. The waiter made a point to let us know if we want to order any more food just before happy hour was finishing.
Great food but so loud. Not for a date experience.
This place! I am so glad I discovered it. First off, the cocktails are amazing. Very unique. And the food! Oh my gosh, the food is so good. From pork buns to sashimi salad to steak frites (and so much more) everything was so good. Notable dish: kimchi fried rice with bacon and mozzarella, which comes out sizzling on a hot stone. The waitress pours egg on top at the table and mixes everything in. I cannot wait to go back and try new things, though it will be difficult to not order the exact same things.
omg loved it.
very nice bar, but a bit louder than expected considering the small number of patrons. the cocktails were well-made. food was okay. service was excellent. would return again for happy hour.
its a fun place - good fun, especially the pork buns and KFC. You can eat at bar or tables - it's quite small and they don't have many tables so worth booking in advance.
I read abiut this restaurant in one of the cooking magazines and was very excited to go there. But this place is just ok. Most food is fried and too salty. The dance music was getting louder and louder. I would not go back there, was quite disappointed.
Everything is a hit here. Second time there in a month and honestly can't wait to go back!
We were surprised to see how empty the restaurant was for a Saturday night. What was nice to though was that when a few members of our party arrived early, they seated us right away instead of making us wait. We began with drinks and cocktails from the bar which were all successfully orchestrated and fabulous. However, we can't say the same for the food.
We wanted to start off with their Shishito Peppers, only to be told that they had three large parties the night before and so they had already run out of that appetizer for the entire weekend. So instead for an appetizer we tried the Deviled Eggs and the Spiced Edamame. The Devil Eggs were a huge let down - nowhere could be find even a hint of kimchi, and the bacon that was there were packaged bacon bits... they couldn't even make their own bacon bits? As for the Spiced Edamame - you could find the exact same thing at any Japanese sushi restaurant and the would probably be better.
For our entrees, we decided to go family style and we shared the following:
1. Calamari & Squid Fries - rings of calamari deep fried in plain batter and dried Korean squid you eat as a snack covered and fried in plain batter
2. KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) - you can get better tasting and better value from your local Korean fried chicken chain
3. Tteok N' Cheese - which was a great concept ... unfortunately the cheese was gritty making for an unappetizing dish
4. Foie Gras Bibimbap - The hot stone bowl was not hot so there was no burnt rice at the bottom and where was the foie gras?
5. Steak Frites - steak cut into strips with dry taro fries and no dipping sauce
While the food was disappointing, we did have a nice server and we were served complimentary lychee shots (which were delicious) since we were celebrating a birthday. Additionally, the French atmosphere was pleasant and all of the employees from the bartenders to the bus boys were efficient.
Apart from the fried chicken and shrimp, everything else was awful. We tried the fried calamari, bone marrow, steak and fries and they were all tasteless.
Mediocre food and tacky decorations. Server was nice though.
Everything was perfect and delicious. Great portion sizes and more than enough to take home.
Food was good but not outstanding - and very rich by the end of the meal. Seemed like they were trying a bit too hard - focusing on a few key flavors would add to the meal.
Quality service. Fantastic food! Perfect portion sizes and the price is right. Restaurant looks a feels like a mini garden as soon as you enter. Will def good back!
Amazing food. Salads are incredible
