The food was good but our server was constantly rushing us and had an air of impatience about him. Then halfway through our meal they shut the lights off, not turned down, in the entire restaurant to sing happy birthday to a large table in the center of the restaurant.

We had a table of six, requested or check be split 3 ways, they would not accommodate us. They said they could only process two cards per table. Beyond that, food was okay at best and very over priced.

My party really enjoyed the food, especially the pork belly pot. However, bar was dirty and I couldn't order a drink for a 20mins I was early for my reservation. Host talked fast and frantically and our server didn't even walk us to our table. They pointed and we guessed. Servers after that were very hasty and had little patience to take our order.

Food is really good! I'm willing to try again despite poor service.

The good thing was it felt like a locals place instead of touristy. And, the wait staff was very friendly.

I had the Poke Mango salad which was really good. For my main I had the Dolsot. The flavor was good, the seafood was overcooked and chewy.

My parter has the BBQ Ribs which had a good flavor. The potatoes were bland.

Cute place and quick service.

Korean fusion style food was really good. Everything tasted great. However, the service was super unfriendly. Waitstaff treated us like they didn't want us there. Need to be a bit more friendly and make customers feel welcome. Good thing the food tasted great. Otherwise, we would have walked out.

I’m a “foodie”. Food is wjat vacations are all about to me! I have to say, it was the BEST meal of our trip!! Every item we ordered was AMAZING! I recommend the Japchae rice, the coconut pineapple soju cocktail, and the coconut ice cream, as well as the chocolate mousse. SO yummy! Each item was our favorite from the whole trip, and we ate out every meal for 4 days. I HIGHLY recommend them!! Great staff as well! Very friendly! Fast too! I was shocked at how quickly our food was to the table, and fresh and HOT! We looked the next day to see if there were other locations nearer our home. LOVE THIS PLACE!!

We had breakfast at Surisan and were pleasantly surprised by a menu that uses mostly staple ingredients but creatively prepares them to make them unique. The egg scrambles were very good, the trademarked Millionaire's bacon, and the ricotta pancakes were perfectly prepared. The service was excellent.

We were one of the first to come in yet still waited nearly 45 mins for our food to arrive. While waiting multiple tables were seated and we began to observe food being delivered to those tables well before ours.

We were told our food got stuck in the kitchen. We were then told that there were photographers taking photos of food and somehow that took prescedence over us. It was a terrible explanation, basically they pushed out food to the photographers and left us waiting.

Quality of food was great for that I would return however because of the poor service I don’t think I ever will.

We were comped a dessert which was thoughtful but in my mind not enough to win my loyalty.

As first time eaters of Korean food we found the staff very helpful. Although the night we dined the restaurant was a little quiet, the atmosphere was still very good.

We enjoyed it so much we plan to return before the end of our vacation in San Francisco.

Food and service were good. We like that Surisan accepts reservations so we don't have to wait. We just didn't like that we couldn't be seated till our party was complete, even if we told the hostess the others were already parking. Also, we felt like we were being rushed to eat every time the server came to ask "Is everything OK?" Seriously, being rushed to eat is not pleasant. But overall, everything was good.
