    Our first experience of Korean food as visitors from the UK and we loved it! Great food, huge portions, good atmosphere and I won a cocktail spinning the wheel - highly recommended.

    Was able to make a reservation at 8:30 pm, but when I arrived the restaurant had the sign turned to closed and we were told the kitchen was closing in 5 minutes and we had to order in 5 minutes. It was all said nicely, but maybe don’t even make it available to make a reservation that late? It was clear they were closing and if we had stayed our whole time there would be rushed. Be more frank and honestly just say you’re actually closing instead of, saying we can stay but, order in five minutes. That’s never happened to me at a restaurant where I had a reservation. I understood the staff wanted to go home, so we left.

    We loved Barn Joo! The staff was wonderful & the food was amazing! I like how if you have a reservation during happy hour, you can spin the wheel for a free drink or one free food item.

    The waiter never returned to ask about our food. My dish was too spicy, and the hostess inquired if there was a problem, gave me a menu , but our server never came back except to give us the bill. The music was loud and inappropriate for dinner. Very disappointed.

    Everything was delicious and loved the ambience but I felt like table was so tiny considering you can do tapas style. Or at least if they paced the food it would have been better. It was tricky with different dishes on a tiny table.

    I had dined here back in 2017 and really liked the experience. I ordered three food items and two drinks: tuna mayo, uni bibimbop, bulgogi (without cheese due to allergy), an elder fashioned, and a single mule. The tuna mayo was very good, the bibimbop was much colder than expected but pretty good, and the bulgogi came out with cheese and needed to be redone…but also pretty good. The drinks were okay but the mule was weak. No one checked to see how my food was but they did apologize when bringing me the corrected bulgogi. A “meh” experience overall; likely would not go back.

    Delicious meal- 4 people shared the bulgogi main, fried wings, and jap chae. Everything was very tasty. THey offer mains and tapas. The service was attentive- they quickly refilled our water. Will definitely visit again. There is happy hour from 4-6. Narrow restaurant so can get a bit noisy.

    Love the food at BarnJoo, everything tasted great. Wished the tapas/shared food options and tiger roll had more to it. Back then the fried tiger roll came in 8 pieces and now its down to 5 pieces for the same price of $13 which is disappointing. We love the drinks and ambiance, the staff was very attentive to one of my family member's peanut allergy. The Hot-stone Bowls were delicious and the Beef Japchae is my go to! Although we do wish the music wasn't so loud; we could barely hear each other or think. At the end of the night we all had scratchy throats, but all in all BarnJoo still remains as one of my favorite restaurants in the city.

    Numerous times we had for service because some of the staff were just in their head space. I ordered drinks during happy hour which wasn't too busy but we didn't get our drinks until happy hour was over. Our food came and that was it. They took our utensils and didn't come back until I asked. Plates? Nope didn't give us any. My party and I had to share the plate the served food was in. But there's one staff member was on top of the water. Saw me finish the bottle and handed me a full bottle of water so seamlessly. The food was very good. The tuna mayo was fun and refreshing for starters. We wanted to try different meats for the bao and tacos, they didn't allow that. No mixing sauces for the fried chicken as well. I would like to come back if they were a little flexible with choices and if the service was better.

    Sad to hear the Happy Hour menu only includes drinks and no longer food. The sparkling yuzu was amazing. Didn’t expect it to be all fancy with the light, but I keep coming because the details are impeccable. Yum yum!
