    Not traditional Korean but a take on it. Interesting menu. Very freshly prepared . Everything had its unique flavor. My only complaint was that it was communal tables. I know that with the grill it is an issue, but sitting so close to people with our party of 4 is a bit awkward and crowded. Also, it was very, very noisy at times. Maybe closing off the back room (with a folding door?) from a large party would block the noise a bit. Sometimes I could not hear what my friends were saying. Overall, it was a fun evening even for us "seniors"...good food, drinks were interesting and the servers were very friendly . ( They did forgot one of our appetizers but it came later) As the restaurant "matures," and more people find out about it, I think it will do well. I would recommend it to anyone who likes Korean food, but maybe go on a week night when the noise level might not be so loud.

    As a Korean person who was raised on good, authentic Korean food, I highly recommend this restaurant. The service is amazing which pairs perfectly with the great food. If you've never tried Korean cuisine, I recommend starting here. Extra bonus for the cocktails!

    Great food! Eddie our server was amazing. He was polite, prompt, great to talk to, and an all around great guy. The food was outstanding, we did the Valentine's menu (Land) with wine paring, great wines, and delicious and abundant courses. I loved all the little extras, tofu, daikon, kimchi, and it was fun for a different experience.

    So disappointed. Better Korean food in Chicago and better value. Slapping 6 strips of meat and 8 mushrooms and 1 ring of onion is pretty lame. And our waiter burned the meat and took 25 min to come back with new meat and the 2 other people in our party were done eating. Also not a big fan of long tables for multiple parties like I’m at a picnic.

    Not great as a Korean BBQ spot - just okay Panchon, mushy bulgogi, okay short ribs. Some of the different stuff they are doing - marinated mushrooms for one - are pretty good and the overall service and ambiance are quite pleasant, but there are much better and just as interesting Korean places for me.

    We had an awesome meal consisting up upscale Korean fare with some modern twists. The flavors were delicious and everything was super fresh. Cocktails were also bold and amazing. Service was attentive without being over-bearing and the manager was an absolute delight to talk to. No complaints here! We will try to get back there ASAP.

    What a fabulous find! Amazingly fresh, authentic Korean meal. It offers a "feast," which is multi-course and a great introduction to the menu, especially for us (we weren't too familiar with Korean fare). We supplemented with a couple of salads, but that wasn't necessary, as portions were generous. All the plates were explained, and you can BBQ your own meat, or the server will do it for you. Drinks were interesting, ranging from Korean beer and cocktails to rare find teas. Parking is a bit of an issue, but it's worth a short walk to dine here.

    Perilla offers an modern, exceptionally well executed take on korean food. While sticking close to traditional flavors and dishes, Perilla elevates the ingredients and the service. The Large Feast is phenomenal to share among 4 (or more) people. Banchan is coursed instead of dropped onto the table all at once. Standouts on the menu are the Berkshire Pork Belly, Korean Fried Chicken wings, Soy Mushrooms, the steamed egg. The kitchen also gifted our table with a beautiful beet salad with goat cheese. The beet salad wasn’t traditional to Korean food, but we really enjoyed it. I highly recommend asking for extra Perilla leaves to wrap your meat in. The quality of the ingredients is lovely. Everyone left extremely happy with their meal.
