Delicious Korean BBQ. Didn't have a chance to eat the Argentinian meat because it was going to take 45 minutes but KBB was delicious anyway. Service was top notch and place is really nice to entertain clients or non-Korean friends.

Lovely dinner - great range of options. Delicious food and fantastically helpful service from Denton - thank you! White wine list could use some work and they were out of one of them.

The restaurant is in a quite niche. We were met with valet parking. There was ample seating. The waiter Goode was Marvelous. Our entrees were continuously coming and he actually did the cooking at our table. It was entertaining and romantic. I would recommend this place to anybody. 'LA new found secret.'

Ombu Grill in Koreatown was a nice experience. Three of us dined there on a Sunday night. Probably only one other table of 2 when we arrived. Not sure anyone else ever came in after that. Our waiter was charming and helpful, and while others were friendly, communication was a little more difficult with them. We picked an item which had 5 different cuts of beef, all very good, cooked over a grill in the table with about 12 to 15 typical Korean side dishes. They also have Argentinian specialties but they all need 1 hour preparation time so we weren’t able to sample as much as we would have liked to. Beer and wine only. Valet parking available in the strip center. Well appointed restaurant.

It’s a very cheap taste, feel, ambience, but the bill was on par, so was the bill, the price rating for this place is misleading. It’s a cheap, not a premium place.

Korean food!!! Great, as always. The service could be more available, but that could just be personal preference.

My first Korean BBQ experience. Staff was helpful and food was very good. Had to ask for some items that came with our combo that didn’t get served but other than that service was good. Would go again.

stuck in LA overnight at end of business trip with an early flight to east coast... my travelling partner and I said "lets get some Korean BBQ". Went to OT and found Ombu.... Dinner was terrific... the host helped us pick a simple chef's choice type menu so we got a little of everything . Great food and some good shochu...

Found this restaurant on google and am so happy we tried it! Everyone was so friendly and the service was fantastic! The food was excellent, and they helped us cook the food at our table. Would definitely love to come back and bring new friends along. Excellent experience and would highly recommend.

Ombu Grill's meat quality is off the charts. That alone is what makes it worth going to.

Empty restaurant on Saturday night at 8 PM... Yet they "ran out" of two of the dishes we wanted to order. Food was mediocre, fried rice was good. Service was attentive, as expected with an empty restaurant. Overall decent food but better K-town options.

There was way too much garlic in the food. The waiters got frustrated with us, as it seemed that they didn't understand us that well... Maybe it was too authentic, but I don't remember Korean bbq being like this

High quality Korean BBQ with a great selection of items and wonderful service. Our waiter was particularly nice and friendly and playful. We had a great time and would highly recommend for a higher end Korean BBQ experience.

My family wanted Korean BBQ for Easter. Yelped & Ombu Grill was first on the list near me. The food was awesome. Our server, Denton, was extraordinary. He grilled for us & paid careful attention to my 8 year old & my elderly father. He cooked & cut the meat just right for them. He even grilled the pork belly on the other grill so the fat won’t splatter & burn my son. We were a hungry group of 8 & we got 2 of the family meal. Worth every penny & filled us up.
