Our barbecue & Korean Food recipes have been passed down from one generation to another to bring a traditional & quality Korean dining experience. We only use the highest quality of ingredients & authentic Samwon Garden recipes.
Experience one of South Korea’s best traditional Korean BBQ’s at Samwon Garden BBQ.
Hostesses are very un-accomodating.
Loud music and unable to hear any conversation.
service is not bad, but not good either.
food is very pricey and lots of things considered 'included' in other Korean restaurants need to be ordered.
The ambiance and service were good. I like the restaurant decor - chic and rustic. The servers were prompt to cook the barbecue for us. Water service was spot on. For me the food was average. It was not a wow compared to the other Korean restaurants I have eaten in - just regular Korean flavor. I have tasted a more variety of appetizers in other Korean restaurants. Overall, I will still recommend Samwon Garden to a friend. It is reasonably priced.
seated promptly at our reservation time, steak tatare x 2 was superb, my rib eye and my wifes short ribs were outstanding. the young wait staff cooks at your table and answers any questions, the bologi kimchi fries were an unexpected treat
I made a reservations for 3pm but my appointment firsted early so i headed over there. Luckily they were about to accommodate me at an earlier time. I definitely believe that during dinner time it would be packed but we went at a perfect time! Service was great and helpful with our questions regarding the food.
Excellent food and great cocktails. Decor is pretty and overall staff was nice!
The food was great. And the service was on point and very attentive. This is my second time going. And will definitely come again.
Portions are not huge but they are good. Server was not very polite.
Super expensive! The dish was so small. I will NEVER visit again.
Wonderful service, excellent food- perhaps some of the best kimchi I’ve had anywhere! Would definitely go back!
The waitress serving us was very rude.
The very best Korean bbq in NYC
The food was truly outstandingly sumptuous and plentiful. The pan-chan was great and refilled to our desire. Clean place and very attentive staff.
Don't bring your kids here! They charged us $15 for a Shirley Temple and insisted that was correct despite our pleas! Food is good. They will rush you through your meal though.
Even though I made a reservation three weeks in advance and specifically noted that it is a special occasion, they sat us at a table all the way at the end of the dining room in a corner. When I approached the host and explained that we were tourists and would like to sit at a better situated table to enjoy the atmosphere more, I was flat out told that it's not possible and that I can't change my table. The server was extremely unpleasant with an attitude could be almost considered rude. She was not into what she was doing at all, like she was doing us a favor serving to our table! She also did not care, for example, that when she was cutting the meet for the BBQ that the raw marinate was dripping into our salad bowl. No one deserve such service.
Outstanding Korean barbecue and non-barbecue food. First rate service. Only downside was overly loud K-Pop coming from the speakers which sometimes made it difficult to converse. The high quality imaginative food made it likely that we will return
The fever deal is definitely worth it! I recommend ordering another beef dish to grill along with the pork you get
Perfect date night, great options on food, great service
Food was incredible. Go with more than two people so that you can try different things and get more for your money. A bit rushed but you can set your pace.
Good Korean BBQ option in Koreatown. Attentive service and good quality food. One of the few that takes reservations.
Food was pretty good but not exceptional. The steamed egg was a bit of a let down... it looked great in the menu pictures but the actual dish tasted old, hard and slightly burnt...
A toilet was broken and I had to wait too long to use another.
Wir waren zweimal während unseres NYC trips dort. Beide male reserviert aber unsere Tische waren nicht frei. Mussten beide male über 20 Minuten auf unseren Tisch warten! Aber warum nimmt ihr dann Reservierungen an? Das Essen Ok, das Ambiente auch der Service nicht sehr freundlich und eher langsam. Die Preise sind überteuert auch für NYC Verhältnisse. Lieber in ein gutes Steakhaus! Da hat man mehr von seinem Geld!
This is a place that worth for the meat, which is good. The quality of the banchan is not impressive at all, wine list is not long but you can find good bottles at a reasonable price.
It was nice but the service was not top notch. Server did not really care much. However, they had excellent manners!
Great food! The deal through Fever was clutch. So much food!
The cocktails there are amazing. Definitely make time to just sit at the bar before your reservation and try every cocktail on the menu!
Some of the best KBBQ I've had! Service was good and the food was incredible. It was a VERY cramped space though and loud. And much pricier than other places in Ktown. But the food was worth it.
This place knows its meat. Delicious cuts which you can grill on a BBQ in front of you (or rather get it grilled by your waiter, they also cut it with scissors). We totally over-ordered - 2 starters + a platter for two is more than enough as you get all possible kinds of sides anyway. The staff is very friendly - the only “downside” is that they rush a little bit, we would have been finished with our whole dinner in 30 minutes if we would have wanted. Overall - great place & awesome steak!
Excellent place for an interesting tasty business dinner
Amazing food! Try the marinated beef or spicy pork shoulder. Be aware that you must order 2 bbq dishes minimum for table bbq.
Food is good. Very noisy place. The table next to us is extremely loud. Also our server has to rush all the time since she is taking care quite a few tables.
Despite some reviewers saying this, we didn't feel rushed at all. Food was tasty and well timed. Service was impeccable. 50 per person incl drinks and plenty of food.
It is a popular place for Korean barbecue! Nice environment and food there!
I love coming to this restaurant every time. The food is superb and the service is great. Try the marinated beef. It’s the go to here.
Great Korean fix ,go for weekday lunch ,it’s worth the trip.
Planned a dinner with friends and everyone was craving Korean BBQ. Experience was excellent in terms of the service and food quality. The value for everything was great and the two favorites were the Samwon short rib and the kimchi fried rice. Everyone had a great time and will definitely come back.
I was looking forward to this having visited their Seoul restaurants many times. Bottom line - no comparison. Not to say it was awful, it wasn't but it's much more tightly packed, and the taste of some of the dishes was not - in my opinion - authentic Korean. In particular the marinade used for the Kalbi and Bulgogi was very sweet. There was no choice of assorted kimchi - only a couple of types which really surprised me. Condiments served with the BBQ were quite limited - no chili peppers, no raw garlic, no hot bean paste. The service was rushed - we had to tell them to slow down 2-3 times as the objective seemed to be to get us out within an hour. No focus on ambience or relaxing and enjoying the meal. If this was fast food I could understand, but we were ordering premium beef and it was not cheap. All in all, not what I expected. the Kimchi Chigae was good, the Korean style wings also, the pancake was so-so - rather heavy and doughy, the stone bowl bibimbap was also just ok. We won't return.
I changed my reservation from 4 people to 7 people two days before the meeting. However they did not update it and we had to wait there more than 30 minutes. Worst experience ever.
I didn’t realize how big the place is! Was happy to find a lunch reservation for 6 of us after running a half-marathon. It was the perfect setting to catch up with good friends & family and eat some super yummy food. Fortunately, we knew exactly what to order and everyone kept commenting on how delicious everything was. The service was great, as usual, and they let us linger for as long as we wanted, even after the lunch crowd cleared. So happy Samwon Garden is in NYC. A little piece of Seoul in K-town makes me really happy 😊! Thank you 🙏!
The seasoned kalbi and kimchee fried rice are the winners.
