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.

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.

Upon seeing many Korean people in a Korean restaurant, I knew the food would be authentic and good. And it was good.

We were a group of 10 people and tried many dishes. Everything was very good. Uni bibimbap was our favorite dish. Service was attentive. We will return. We were upstairs which was quieter than downstairs.

Great value - excellent, interesting dishes at a very good price. Pleasant surprises included the beef jerky with nuts and the seafood pancake. It got loud after about 7pm.

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.

Being told there is a time limit right before you eat due to another reservation is quite uncomfortable especially when you have a reservation yourself.

The food is soooooo good. They have different deals everyday of the week and Tuesdays are for the wings. It’s so worth it! The kimchi fried rice with steak is hands down my favorite, I will always be going back for it! Our server our super nice and informative as well. Can’t wait to go again and try more, definitely recommend this place!

Got an early reservation during happy hour. Very lively atmosphere. Well priced specials including really tasty $1 wings and $4 off many cocktails. Everything we ordered was delicious- the wings, kimchi fried rice, Korean pancakes, rice cakes in a fish stew, kalbi. Five of us stuffed our faces and couldn’t finish everything. The price point was reasonable. Would certainly go back!

A wonderful Korean “pub”! The food we ordered was all delicious — Korean Market Fried Chicken was to die for and the beef dish we had (forget the name) was likewise great. Veggies and sauces were all yummy. Our servers were all friendly, helpful and very attentive. The beer and sake on offer are also very good. My only complaint is the noise level. Really too loud and bad for conversations. But for a late night meal (we came after a Broadway show) you won’t do better than the menu at Osamil. Definitely coming back. It’s a great place for a group of friends to get together.

Music was very fun, decor is well thought out & the entrance is very inviting... lots of green plants, modern Scandinavian tiles, designer lighting... all set a nice mood. The menu is excellent. The service was terrific. We had spicy chicken wings, pancakes, sweet potato fries, and pork shank. We are going back to try the rest of the menu. Irene was our waiter, she made excellent suggestions for cocktails & beers... and was very patient with all our questions. Can't wait to go back.

Had family visiting from California and we had Sunday dinner there. Everything was amazing. Get the fried chicken! It won’t disappoint. The only thing that was lackluster was the grilled avocado with crab. Otherwise, everything we ordered (both types of fries, fried chicken, pork shank, shishito peppers, octopus salad, burrata salad, lamb chops, and chicken wings) was amazing. A perfect place for group dining
