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.

the food was excellent - every dish!!! The only problem - we ordered too much. Definitely going back to try their burger among other things. The short ribs, the chicken - perfect. Service terrific.

Food was amazing! We ordered the Soy Garlic Wings, various skewers, Osamil Burger, and Kimchi fried rice with Steak. The burger and steak were very rare (we asked for medium rare), but still delicious. The service was impeccable. Our waiter was so generous and helpful! He even gave us Soju to try for the table. Great experience overall.

The food was simply amazing! This was our first experience with Korean food, and it did not disappoint. The twice fried chicken wings with the chili glaze were amazing, the Korean kimchi, mung bean, pork pancake was out of this world, DO get the short ribs, you will be mindblown, and the piece de resistance was the pork belly! OMG. Crazy. Service is confusing, as you have about everyone helping you, but no continuity, no filling of water. The Osamil signature cocktail was, light and refreshing. I can't wait to return.

Amazing value and lots of choice. Bouillabaisse was so much we couldn’t finish it between 2; excellent service and despite it being totally full on a Friday night, it was not that noisy at all. Great and helpful servers, everything came quickly.

Waiters and bartender were distracted. Ordered 6 cocktails over the 3 hours there for dinner. Not one time did our drinks come on time and /or together. Once they made two of my drink. Food was fine as expected. Been here previously. The place wasn’t even packed in a Tuesday night.

Osamil is off the main K-town drag which is convenient. You won't get bombarded too much with the outpouring traffic of Herald Square. Osamil, is gastropub style Korean restaurant. It's a good place to bring newbies as an intro to Korean cuisine. The service is a bit spotty, but the waitstaff is personable and sweet. The sweet potato fries are a must if you're into "meaty" fries, lightly dusted with seasoning. The duck confit salad is a perfectly light entree (Yes, duck confit in a Korean place). It is garnished with Korean pears and quite refreshing. My husband had the chicken and waffles, but why must they put avocado on everything? I would go back, but definitely for drinks and bar bites, not to indulge in Korean heritage.

I went back during the holiday season and it was much more crowded than normal days. Make sure to reserve seats ahead of time! Because it was so crowded they did make mistakes of not bringin out what we asked for but they didn't have a problem revising the bill when we pointed that out. Their daily specials are great and everyone should take advantage!

2nd time here - 1st time had an issue with the hostess canceling our reservation as being late when we were there 15 minutes after the scheduled time which is within their 20-minute policy window. This time was a much better experience and the food equally as good!

We had a great experience at Osamil. We started with the $1 oyster happy hour, The wasabi soy sauce worked surprisingly well. We also had the grilled octopus which came in a sweet/spicy onion sauce that was delicious but more food than we expected and the baby octopus was cut up as opposed to whole. The burger was super rich and delicious, easily a top 10 burger that I’ve had in NYC. The hanger steak and friend rice was also delicious.

Including our drinks (3 beers) and tax our bill was ~$100
