Expensive but so worth it for the quality of food and experience for special occasions. We came here for dinner for our anniversary weekend, and it was so nice to have our own semi-private table, especially considering most other restaurants in NYC have tight space and you can barely hear each other. We ordered 4 kalbi and 2 soups w rice inside, and it was plenty of food for the 2 of us. Will definitely be back again!

But I felt we was being rushed out, our desert was on the table before we had even finished the mains. It came across pretty rude. The guy that cared for us personally was very good but the others not as much.

It’s a Japanese style BBQ restaurant. Look similar to Korean style but the place is probably better for dating. Our seat was Ozashiki seat and had a nice distance from other table. You can order the very high end Wagyu meat but standard Karubi and Harami are still so good. You need to cook the meat at your table. Just cook it as it gets brown a little like medium rare so you still can taste the sweetness of the meat!! I also would like you to try the steak nigiri( sushi). It is a bit pricey but it really melts in your mouth! The service is also Japanese style. They will bring you what you need quickly but they won’t ask you about the food too much. As you finish it, their Annie Tofu (it is actually not a tofu. It’s like chinese style panned cotta, or milk mousse with almond flavor. It’s very refreshing. They said they are open for lunch. I with I could go!!! The price is moderately expensive but it is about the same price we pay in Tokyo so if I can enjoy the same experience in NY with the amount I paid, I think it’s reasonable. :-)

The service was great but they would occasionally cook our meat. That is OK if they were consistent. We were confused if we had to take over at times since they gave little guidance

We ordered the Valentine’s Day course with two meat dishes. The food was great but our grill was never replaced. We also have to ask for scissors to cut our meat. Other than that, everything was good.

They were able to accommodate us earlier than our reservation time due to the space in the restaurant and the food was very delicious and well prepared. The wagyu stake was our favorite. Overall great experience.

I expected the same level of service and food, but I was very disappointed at their service although quality of meal exceeded my expectation. I don’t think they have nailed the operations yet after 3 months of opening. After we were seated for 15min, no one came to greet us or provided water. The manager is very rude, and other servers did not know what they were doing. They need to level up their service quick.

Everything we ate was really good. On the negative, the service is horrible. Not rude, just utterly lacking. I realize that restaurants have a hard time with staff these days, but a restaurant that costs around $75 per person really should have a better handle on service. Much of the floor staff doesn't speak very good English, food came out very haphazard with long waits for basic things. Courses were served out of order and accompaniments had to be requested multiple times.
