    Great service and great food. Reasonable price of just under $40 for all you can eat. Came in on a Sunday with reservations and got seated right away. Wasn’t too busy but plenty of people in. I’d recommend this place and would come again

    Our server was attentive and friendly. When our grill plated needed to be changed, they came quickly. We favored the marinated meats and banchan was delicious. We had dinner reservations for 5 on Father's Day. We knew it would be busy, but we still had to wait about 20 minutes for a table to be ready.

    Chun was an amazing server. He was attentive and provided a great experience for our family that was having Korean BBQ for their first time. In addition, making reservations here is always smooth. The stoves aren’t super large but doable for a max of four people. The parking lot is a decent size too. Definitely enjoy returning to this restaurant!

    I haven’t been to this location since before the pandemic and prices have gone up significantly. The food was good. I just wished that they didn’t separate some of the good stuff from the AYCE menu because that’s just too much to pay extra for when you’ve already raised the AYCE price by $10. They also need better ventilation and grill system because it gets very smokey in there especially when there are a lot of people. Also better seating because I requested a long table but they don’t have that available so my friends and I have to sit separately across each other. That makes the experience a lot less enjoyable especially during a special occasion like this.

    Valentines dinner, i get it, you're going to be extra crowded for all you can eat Korean table-side bbq. There are a whole lot of people, like me, who's see this as the truest expression of love. And I know that the staff were trying very hard, but we did have to wait 45 minutes for our 7pm reservation as they must have seriously over booked. That however was really the only downside. Food was great, service was lovely, especially as the staff were trying to coral all the hungry, love struck, diners. Great cuts of meat, pork bely was not my favorite, but the beef selections were excellent. All in all I will absolutely come back, but just a humble request to the management, don't try and fit every last person in the restaurant.

    Great service, ambiance, clean environment, portions were good for the price. I would like to have some spice mix to dunk the meat into. Pork belly too thick. Shrimp wasn’t fresh, was very tough after cooking

    Negatives: Side dishes were not fresh and detracted from the meal. Changing the cooking top every 15 minutes was a little annoying, not used to that level of service. Prices were expensive for portions provided. Positives: Overall 4 out of 5 stars, main meals, primarily the marinated meats, tasted great! Our waiters took great care of us, and the table had a great time celebrating a bday. Prices being high aren’t a surprise with the way inflation has been affecting everything. Will return to see if the sides taste better next time, looking forward to what Palace Korean BBQ offers!

    Palace never disappoints! It wasn’t crazy busy and the waiters were at our beckoned call the entire time which really takes the experience to next level since you’re constantly ordering a plate or two of meat. They also kept up on the grill changes which is also nice. I love the marinated pork belly and the short ribs especially. It’s all excellent but I would say I do shy away from the seafood options a little. The shrimp can be very soft/mushy and a bit of a mess.

    Food was great but the service sucks. It’ll be great if their server can communicate well cause it seems like they can’t even talk. So many times that we had tried to call him for a refill, he’ll look at us then go somewhere else. I understand that it’s busy but letting you know that they’re coming back for you would be great than waiting there and doesn’t know if you’re heard or not. Food are getting expensive as well. Now they dont serve veggies unless you’ll pay for it. This place is overrated, go somewhere else.

    I was with friends and family on a sunday, the food was great but the service was really lacking. Servers was kind of rude even when you’re asking nicely. I am with my niece on that day who just turned 7 yrs old, their charge are different on kids from 3-7 than to a adult but the receipt came with all adult charges so I questioned the server, he did not respond to me rather walked out took my receipt and talk to someone but when he comes back he came directly to my niece and ask how old is she. First time i’ve experienced that, the kid did not even eat at all as this was her first time in koren bbq reataurant. I ate here before but service was pretty good back then.

    The reservation wasn’t honored. Saying an hour in advance was to short. Even though I drove and hour for the restaurant because of the reviews. They were super busy and I can understand that but the dudes customer service was a little snippy. This was because of the way I speak I said a cuss (NOT AT HIM! It’s just the way I speak) He then took it as a personal offense. The waiting area was crowded and when I offered to wait inside my car if he could call when it was my turn I was told I had to wait inside with no social distancing in place. This was not an option with my children with me. We ended up leaving. I’m sure the restaurant is amazing and if they aren’t packed the customer service is probably on point. I do feel like the OpenTable reservation system needs to be updated if you can make a reservation when they are full.

    We made reservations for 630pm got there at 633 pm waited 2 minutes for greeter to come back and said they gave are table away because we were late. Did get seated 5 minutes later but that tells me how much they care about my business (not at all). Otherwise food and table service was good but that first impression turned me off. Always have only gone there for Korean BBQ but will now try other places.

    Made a reservation. We know any group more then 5 due to covid has to be in two tables. We had 8. (All immediate family) They sat us in different tables but was 30 min late in seating us. They were also very busy and this was at 4pm. They were short with answering questions and about 4 people asked us for (how many people). We asked 3 different people since we are in different tables and we had 2 Groupons if we can use it because it was expiring. We couldn’t eat out for awhile so the Groupon was only good for another two weeks. They said no because it was one group even if we sat separately. I even said we will pay the auto gratuity. (Again we had two different tables) They said they will honor the Groupon next time even if it was expired (I hope this is true). The price went up to almost $33.00 per person. So overall it was just ok. Service and food.

    Our family had to keep finding the waiter. He forgot our drinks several times and we had to keep asking for our unlimited meal. The waitress dropped plates in the bend loudly by our table. They were not friendly at all. Lastly, when I told them about my complaints after spending $160, the host gave us our change and told us to never come again instead of apologizing. Love the one in Lakewood, WA.

    Our county is in Phase 2 and indoor dining has been restricted to 25% capacity. As the 1st customer of the day, I was warmly welcomed into quite an empty space. When more people arrived, they were seated more than 6 ft away. There was an abundance of sanitizer and consistent temperature checks. Restaurant was thoroughly clean and the ambience inviting. Of course, the food was spectacular! If you have an opportunity to eat when the doors open you may find the food more delicious than any other time served in the day! Restaurant comes highly recommended for anyone!
