High backed booths and private rooms for small or large groups accommodate both personal and professional occasions, free from any loud interruptions or distractions. Strategic pops of color make for a trendy and inviting environment, while lush greenery provides a positive energy.

    It was a great restaurant BUT one particular thing I did not like is how the Korean server and cooker was speaking Korean to my date. I don’t mind but then I asked my date what was said. She told me she said I was awesome. I find that hard to believe because the conversation was like 2 minutes long. It just gave me an uncomfortable feeling. Other than that the service/food was great. I probably won’t be returning though after that.

    Got the "experience" Korean BBQ. With some Korean BBQ they cook the meat at the table and at others you do it yourself. This is one of the "they cook it for you" but wasn't aware this was the case a head of time. Which made for some confusion. It's a personal preference, but I would like to be able to opt for just having the meat delivered to the table and not have to stress out a wait staff trying to cook for us. They have a hard enough job!

    Great service, average food. If you are going to charge $50 per person you should have a wine list that compliments the price. They charge $16 for a glass of literally a $5 bottle of wine. Kendall jackson is their “high end”.

    This was the best Korean bbq experience I have ever had. From the warm welcome to our server, the sweetest lady ever, she made recommendations and we ended up choosing the entire Korean BBQ experience and we were not disappointed. I have found our gem! Wonderful atmosphere, and attentiveness, very clean and not smokey compared to other places I have visited. Food was amazing! Thank you!!

    Underwhelming decor and environment- made worse by noisy ambiance and a noisy customer playing videos on speakerphone in booth next to us and manager and staff refused to do anything. It was like eating at dennys. To make it worse - the short staff could not speak much English or explain the Dold they delivered in a flurry. The website menus link do not work either.

    Our server was nice and had a great sense of humor, but he was very busy given the Thanksgiving holiday. We ordered the sampler, but we didn’t get our soup and rice until after the meal. The check also took a long time to receive. Food was mediocre; not really worth the hefty price.

    We went on thanksgiving and it was busy but service was excellent! My husband and I enjoyed that the servers cook for you so you can focus on conversation and enjoying your dinner. We did the custom KBBQ with marinated boneless short rib, beef brisket, bulgogi, and chicken bulgogi and you get a lot of food! We both walked out of there very full but fitting for the occasion. Would definitely go back again and recommend if you are more than just two people, though my husband and I would go back just the two of us again as well. Parking was easy and convenient in the lot connected to the complex.

    A group of us decided to try Ombu Grill based on the many positive reviews it received. We were not disappointed. We ordered the Signature Sampler and it was totally worth it. The lobster and meats were tasty and we could not decide which was our favorite - the short rib, rib eye, pork belly, or whatever we happened to eat last. I will definitely come back. Great place!

    If you plan to order any of the argentinean meats, you have to call ahead because it takes 45mins-1 hour for the meat to cook. That being said, once you make the order, you cannot change it. They will give you a hard time if you change your mind and blame the customer.

    A forced pre-set menu for Father’s Day. Limited options due to Father’s Day. Miscommunication with staff regarding what is offered for that day, which confused us when ordering. Extremely high base price for the pre-set menu, and even more when upgrading the meat. I don’t think I’ll come back again. Not worth coming here

    i don’t even know where to begin. our waitress was rude and dismissive to us. we were brought plastic forks/spoons to eat with, then we noticed other tables received actual silverware and chopsticks and we had to ask for that. what kind of restaurant thinks it’s okay to let people pay $50+/person and make them dine with plastic forks & spoons? the food wasn’t even that good, definitely not worth the money. our table was still filthy when we sat down and we had to get someone to wipe it off again, and she barely did it and didn’t even get the food off of it from the previous table so she had us wipe it ourselves (which is fine) but again was rude about it. we were rushed to get up and leave after our we were finishing up, but for what? there was no one waiting and half the restaurant was open. not a good experience at all. do not recommend this place.
