Underwhelming decor and environment- made worse by noisy ambiance and a noisy customer playing videos on speakerphone in booth next to us and manager and staff refused to do anything. It was like eating at dennys.
To make it worse - the short staff could not speak much English or explain the Dold they delivered in a flurry. The website menus link do not work either.

Our server was nice and had a great sense of humor, but he was very busy given the Thanksgiving holiday. We ordered the sampler, but we didn’t get our soup and rice until after the meal. The check also took a long time to receive. Food was mediocre; not really worth the hefty price.

We went on thanksgiving and it was busy but service was excellent! My husband and I enjoyed that the servers cook for you so you can focus on conversation and enjoying your dinner. We did the custom KBBQ with marinated boneless short rib, beef brisket, bulgogi, and chicken bulgogi and you get a lot of food! We both walked out of there very full but fitting for the occasion. Would definitely go back again and recommend if you are more than just two people, though my husband and I would go back just the two of us again as well. Parking was easy and convenient in the lot connected to the complex.

Great meat selection cooked at the table, Argentinian and Korean style. Carne asada, rib-eye, galbi, all delicious and filling. Great wine list. Joseph Phelps red went great with our meal. Seafood pajun came last on the house. Great service!

A group of us decided to try Ombu Grill based on the many positive reviews it received. We were not disappointed. We ordered the Signature Sampler and it was totally worth it. The lobster and meats were tasty and we could not decide which was our favorite - the short rib, rib eye, pork belly, or whatever we happened to eat last. I will definitely come back. Great place!

If you plan to order any of the argentinean meats, you have to call ahead because it takes 45mins-1 hour for the meat to cook. That being said, once you make the order, you cannot change it. They will give you a hard time if you change your mind and blame the customer.

A forced pre-set menu for Father’s Day. Limited options due to Father’s Day. Miscommunication with staff regarding what is offered for that day, which confused us when ordering. Extremely high base price for the pre-set menu, and even more when upgrading the meat. I don’t think I’ll come back again. Not worth coming here

i don’t even know where to begin. our waitress was rude and dismissive to us. we were brought plastic forks/spoons to eat with, then we noticed other tables received actual silverware and chopsticks and we had to ask for that. what kind of restaurant thinks it’s okay to let people pay $50+/person and make them dine with plastic forks & spoons? the food wasn’t even that good, definitely not worth the money. our table was still filthy when we sat down and we had to get someone to wipe it off again, and she barely did it and didn’t even get the food off of it from the previous table so she had us wipe it ourselves (which is fine) but again was rude about it. we were rushed to get up and leave after our we were finishing up, but for what? there was no one waiting and half the restaurant was open. not a good experience at all. do not recommend this place.

Had High expectations and was very disappointed, the service sucked, the server told us to hurry and order because they had a big group he had to take orders for, after asking for TWO booster seats they said they only had ONE in the whole restaurant which my toddler had to seat with out a booster or high chair, waters were never refilled, servers took forever to even come and ask us how everything was going, napkins were never brought after asking, rice never got to us until the end. Horrible experience GEN KOREAN BBQ IS 10xs better in service, food and price.

Reservation was for 8:30, waited in the lobby for about 10 minutes before being acknowledged even though I clearly stated I had a reservation for 8:30. Was led to booth 25 minutes later. Ordered the small sampler, 30 minutes later they asked what I ordered because they “forgot”. Took over 45 minutes to receive food/meats. I was attended by 3 different servers and there was a clear lack of communication. We food was received I asked our first server for a tofu seafood soup. She said she would check with the kitchen even though it’s on the menu. I never got an answer back or she never put the order in. The second server who brought the meats set the grill extremely high and the meat was stuck onto the grill . After repeatedly asking for them to turn down the heat, 3 servers just came and went without really listening to my requests. I asked for a second bowl of rice and the server “forgot” and brought it after my meal was done. The grill heat/flame was only lowered just before the end of the meal. Pretty much most of the meat was burned as a result. I had high expectations at it was definitely not worth the money spent there. I been to cheaper all you can eat Korean bbq that give 5 star service. Absolutely disappointed

Great food. The service could have been better and more well prepared for a Mother’s Day special occasion. My table had to constantly keep reminding our waitress to take our order, bring us our drinks, and wave her down when we needed her. I would never come back here again. The food was delicious though!

We dined here for mother's day and while the staff was friendly, the food was awful at the price charged. $450 for 6 people, and again, the food was like grocery store KBBQ. We live in Irvine, and our city has way better KBBQ, at a fraction of the cost.

I knew what the cost would be so that was not a surprise - but at that price, I expected food to taste much better than what we had, in terms of freshness, and taste. The seafood tasted like rubber dipped in salt. Our whole group don't know how this place was rated 4 out of 5 on Yelp.

Totally disappointed.

The atmosphere was a lot louder and more like other KBBQ places than the pictures let on. Showed up for our 7PM reservation for Mother's Day and had to wait a while to be seated anyway, and it was a very long time before they took our order. One of the two meat options was unavailable, as was a dish included in the Mother's Day Special. They only just said they ran out and there was no alternative offered or discount given. They were clearly understaffed which is understandable, and the staff tried their best, but I did feel the reviews and pictures were pretty misleading.
