Korean
Our name derives from the Korean translation of our address, 5 west 31st street. 5- Oh, 3- Sam, 1-il. The space consists of a large open bar, an open kitchen, and an airy dining area. Like the food, the space design combines both modern and traditional elements to engage the senses. The open kitchen showcases our Ko-chi (Korean style skewers) grill that infuses bold Korean flavors.

Really love the food. I think it’s not a cheap place, but the portion is really great! I feel the restaurants is like a bar vibe, you may wanna get another place if the crew wants to have a conversation

Great value for fantastic food. Only complaint is that the plates were a lot bigger than expected, so bring some friends! We got the Pork Shank. They said it was for 2 to 3 people. Easily 4-5 peoples worth of food. That being said, everything was delicious. Drinks were super fun. Fun music. Cozy atmosphere. 10/10 would go again.

I took my old Skool Korean parents for dinner. They were skeptical- but ended up loving the fried chicken, kimchi fried rice, squids fries and oysters! Amazing food, friendly service, great space and cocktails.

The lady at the hostess stand was extremely rude. Even after we showed her the opentable reservation she kept us waiting. It could have been because my friend had asked her if they had a table and she flat out said the wait was 3 hours, even though there was only a small party of 2 before us waiting and there were 3 empty tables outside and about 5 inside. This was before we booked the table on opentable. After we made the opentable reservation and showed her that, she was visibly furious and she kept insisting it was a systems fault and that they had no tables. Finally we were seated though. The experience from there onwards was splendid, the food tasty and the service impeccable (waiter jun).

Overall, it would be nice if opentable could work with the hotel systems a bit better and give opentable customers a slightly better experience while checking in

We found the service to be lacking - basic requests like can we have some hot sauce on the side or Kimchi were met with rude responses. Also, when asked about the sweetness level of a drink, the server responded, "I've never tried it". Would be nice if we tried to find out for us instead of just shutting us down. We ate a couple of apps and headed to Jongro for a nice, friendly meal.

Osamil had some of the best service my friend and I have ever experienced at NYC. Our waitress was wonderful at recommending food choices, especially the tteokbokki, and she also came back twice to ask about drinks and suggest ones for those too which we loved. They came by to remind us both about last call for food and drinks, and let us stay in the restaurant a little late to wait for the rain of the remnants of hurricane Ida to get better (spoiler alert, they didn't!) Gave my friend and I bags to cover ourselves since someone took our umbrella, they help up 'til we could purchase one nearby. Probably the best restaurant experience I've ever had in Ktown!

Osamil is very lively, lots of energy and loud!
Food was good but the featured signatures like the market chicken was too dry and the pork shank was too fatty… and not very flavorful. However the small plates like the uni bibimbap was great and so was the kimchi fried rice!

The oyster was no where from fresh, beef tarte doesn’t feel fresh as well.

Really worried about the food quality there, especially raw food

Service was not bad

The Osamil team did a fantastic job accommodating us (we increased our party size several times) and the service was so great, which is hard to do for a party of 15. The food was excellent - loved the fried chicken in particular!

What a wonderful part of the dining scene in NYC. If you want something a bit more refined than the typical Koreatown dining scene, Osamil is a great choice. It’s more of a gastropub and we loved it!

Covid review: Outdoor seating was manageable. My friend and I sat on a high chair table. It was enough for the two of us. We both loved the bossam and especially it's presentation. The cocktails were delicious too!

AMAZING MEAL! Everything we had was so delicious and fresh. The meats slid off the bone, the skin on the fried chicken was to die for, and the drinks were awesome. Would recommend to anyone looking for a high end authentic Korean meal. Wow!

I wanna try kimchi fried rice with steak, but they are out of it after 10pm, also they don't serve cured shrimp after 10pm, after all it's very good.
