PERILLA | korean american fare
Located in River West / Fulton Market area
The food was good, if pretty traditional for korean bbq. But as a vegetarian it was nice to be able to go to a korean BBQ joint and have vegetarian options!
Everything was awesome. We both got sick the next day... it is what it is. Those things happen. We will def come back.
It is good to spend time at the lounge bar in the restaurant.
Food is very good, service is perfect. It's not as authentic as some Korean restaurants I have been to but it is nice. It's a bit too loud and too difficult to talk to friends. But I would definitely go back for the great food and amazing drinks.
Great food, with a definite different take on Korean fare. Love it
While the BBQ smelled delicious, my friend and I enjoyed a vegetarian meal and wow! Chef Andrew really shines with the veg dishes. Do not miss the mushrooms or asparagus. Can't wait to try again!
The food was amazing. Highly recommend this place.
It was amazing!
Awesome food and dining experience! Highly recommend it!
Great service! Great drink service! Hospitality!!!
Yura and Thomas went above and beyond to make the evening special to celebrate our friends’ engagement. THANK YOU!!!
This was a very good works dinner night, The service was attentive, food was fresh and at a good standard. Cocktails were also very good. We had the 4 person feast with the Wagu steak , lots of food for everyone. Pork Dumplings, Fire Chicken and the Wagu were great . The star of the show was the sides !
If Heineken made Korean BBQ restaurants!
Fantastic service. The staff was very friendly and attentive to the table. Absolutely will be back.
Grand opening soon!
First time at Perilla and we had the Feast for 4. Everything was very good, especially the Korean Fried chicken wings. Brussels sprouts had parmesan cheese which is an odd flavor profile for the rest of the menu. When you ordered the feasts, you will end up fill, but not eating much meat from the grill.
I'll be back, but next time would likely just order meat which would come with the Banchan sides which they refill upon request.
Glad to have Perilla in town.
Perilla seemed like korean food that was 5% americanized. To me that was a good thing but probably not so good to my korean tablemates but they said they liked it too. I liked that the silky tofu soup didn’t have any mussels. Also liked the selection of craft beer.
The food is great, the service is outstanding and the food and drinks, including wine list are reasonable.
From reception to waitress to food runners the service was right on. The manager was very attentive to the overall service and visited most tables at least once.
The only thing I would change is that the happy hour drink specials are only available in the back bar, not once you’re seated. Paying twice as much for the same glass of wine when you could just walk back to the bar seems unnecessary.
Really excellent food. Waiters provided great service. I would definitely go back for the bulgogi and anything on the grill. Everything we ordered was really delicious
Good restaurant with higher price compare with other Korean BBQ
Top notch from restaurant to service to food. Had family and friends in from
Out of town. They loved it too. Just a fantastic place and love the respect to Michelle Obama. Will definitely be back again.
Screams cultural appropriation. Dishes lacked flavor and strayed from cultural roots. Will not be returning.
Excellent food and a really knowledgeable and friendly waitstaff.
We booked the place at 9:15 pm but we had to wait at least 20 min to be seated. The quality of the meat was good but it was really small for a korean bbq restaurant.
It is more modernized and we appreciated good smell control. But, it is less authentic. I don’t think I will go there again because there are better choices for korean bbq such as Daebak.
Great food and drinks!
Amazing food, great value, friendly service. Can’t wait to go back!
My husband is Korean and loves good Korean food. Both of our young adult children do as well. We all thought this restaurant was wonderful!! Great food! Amazing service! And very fun hip atmosphere! We will be back!
I like Rib Eye Steak and Skirt Steak, large portion and well marinated. Service was friendly and well educated about Korean cuisine. It could be perfect if they serve stew/soup with grilled meat.
I want to try their patio next time!
Cool environs, prime beef, good apps. What more can you want?
The best Korean barbecue I’ve ever had in my life, boarder line fine dining an amazing experience with great service.
We were a group of 9 and had a terrific dinner at Perilla. Katie, our server, was extremely attentive, explaining all the dishes we were unfamiliar with and giving us great recommendations, as well as preparing the grilled meat for us. Perilla was a wonderful introduction to Korean cuisine for us and we will definitely be back.
The food was fantastic--we had a party of 6 and the server suggested The Feast and it was just the right amount of food for us! Service was excellent and the food was so good!
Really enjoyed our first dinner at Perilla. The food was delicious and portions generous. I can’t wait to go back and try more stuff!
First time having Korean food, great experience! Friendly staff and the food was amazing! There was so much food with the feast package, and it was a great value! I will definitely return, and highly recommend Perilla.
Good vibe. Friendly Service. Good food. Only wish thr meats come out together. By the time the spare ribs came out we were already full.
Nice and fresh food , lots of dishes and good quality meet
As an Asian, I'm always skeptical about a new restaurant, especially with Korean BBQ, and especially if they don't let you cook the meat yourself! However, this place completely blew my mind. The quality of the food, the service and everything about the restaurant was phenomenal! It's also reassuring to hear how the Manager (or Owner) was explaining to the trainee on how to grill the meat and how he was so attentive and carefully cooked for every customer. I could tell that he has a great passion for the restaurant and everything in it. I will definitely go back again, in fact, I'm planning to go back next week. Cannot wait!
We saw a rat outside while eating
Excellent food, and the feast for 2 is more than enough food. In addition to the great food, the service was exceptional. Will visit again when I return to Chicago.
