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.

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!

Drinks a little pricey but delicious craft cocktails with unique ingredients. for food we only had the oysters which were very fresh and it was the end of the night so we ordered 6 and they gave us the last 2 as extras since it was last call anyway. nice touch of customer service

Osamil never disappoints, it has been one of our go to’s since we discovered it soon after our move to NYC. The sweet potato fries, pork shank & wings are our go-to. Amazing cocktails too!

I normally don’t write reviews cuz I don’t hate on establishments. Been waiting to try this place for a quite a while now. The pics of the dishes on open table are deceiving. In person the portions are so small that we left hungry and unsatisfied. The bill wasn’t all that much since we stopped ordering after the few appetizers and the main dish I had. The apps don’t make any sense. Their so small and a little over priced. When you look at this place on Instagram it looks amazing but in person it’s the total opposite. The service is okay, waitresses don’t speak english.

Food, atmosphere and cocktails were all great. What ruins a great restaurant is service though. Upon being greeted one of the first things the host will say is there is a time limit on the table, that’s the way Osamil wants you to start your meal..with a stop watch in your head. The tab for 4 people was around $400 when the server made it clear that we had hit our time. No offers for more drinks or food were made. You can’t be expensive but also push people out and expect repeat customers. It’s a shame because the food was good.

This unassuming Korean style pub has something for everyone. While we saw tables filled with pub style food (notably french fries), most dined on unique Korean preparations. We started with an oyster and chive pancake. Unlike most Korean pancakes that are mostly the flour mixture. this was filled with julienne vegetables with oysters, with only enough starch to hold it together, We then shared the bouillabaisse. We were told it was large enough to share, and it was. Filled with large and small clams, large and small shrimp, squid, mussels, scallops and fish, with a lobster claw and partial to boot, the lobster stock permeated the seafood to create an astounding flavor combination. The service was prompt and efficient, and we were made to feel welcome. We will return to try many of the of the offerings that we missed. While the voices of the diners carried, there was the absence of loud music, so that the ambiance was good.

Osamil was awful. It was way too crowded, the hostess never even took our coats so we all had to hang them up ourselves. We were kicked out after 2 hours - the hostess said there's another reservation waiting for the table... ridiculous. Then they tried to ask us for the coat rack numbers even though they never helped us and our coats were right there hanging. This place ruined my 25 year reunion. We are never going back.

I came here for dinner with a friend.

We were seated promptly. The server was friendly and attentive.

I got the K-Town Sidecar, which was very good.

We shared the squid fries, a short rib skewer, chicken wings, and the pork jowl. The chicken wings were excellent. I thought the squid fries and the short rib skewer were good as well

The pork jowl, unfortunately, was too tough for my liking.

I would come here again, but I would try a different entree next time.

Delicious cocktail and happy hour prices. Food was good, but rice was extra. They also did not bring the traditional sides such as kimchi, which was disappointing. I don't think you could order it either.
