    Affordable place, but without the memorable atmosphere or ambience. Service was okay, but distanced and not fully present.

    The service was very good, especially the host and our waitress. The food was good. Wish they gave little more generous amount of food. People said the restaurant was upscale... but we were little disappointed with the plastic personal plates and the thin napkin...

    Service was good. Had to ask for sparkling water three times but other than that it was good. Food was under seasoned and a bit overpriced. Worst margarita of my life. Limited wines by the glass No dessert menu It was not even half full, middle of afternoon and we felt rushed to pay and leave once done eating

    Had a great time at Dons Bogam. BBQ table was great. Had the marinated rib eye (delicious) and the skirt steak (never seen so much marbling in a skirt steak!) Also shared some dumplings and japchae which were both excellent. I’d recommend.

    Een levendige zaak, iets wat rumoerig, maar het eten is erg lekker. De service is goed, er is keuze om zelf te grillen of aan een normale tafel te eten. Er is meer als genoeg keuze in het menu en de porties zijn ruim. Al met al zeker de moeite waard om langs te gaan en een hapje te gaan eten.

    The restaurant used to have amazing quality meats. However, I was quite disappointed in the quality of Pork/ meat that we got yesterday. It was tough, rubbery and tasted like jerky even when it was fresh off the grill. Not sure what happened, however will not return due to poor quality of food.

    Don’t make the 9:30 reservation… we were the last table by 10 and literally the entire floor staff was hovering and rushing us to finish. It totally ruined the experience. We ended up leaving by 10:30 because it was so uncomfortable.

    We’ve done Korean BBQ several times, this was our best experience yet. Started out with tteokbokki and a green pepper chive pancake, which were both delicious. Banchan high quality. Since it was a special occasion, we splurged and got the American Wagyu BBQ for two. It was delicious and expertly prepared. Best meats were the ribeye and the marinated galbi. Service is a well-oiled machine, we were never without water or lettuce wraps for the meat. They warned us when we arrived that it was timed seating and we had an hour and a half, but that was more than enough time, we were both stuffed and had leftovers packed up to go and our check paid after about 45 minutes. If you were going to get one of the beef sets I’d say you don’t need two appetizers like we got, one would be plenty. Bonus points for being a block away from the main drag, notably less crowded. We’ll be back.

    They listed a 2016 Masi Amarone on their wine list but had only a 2018. No apologies. Seating was difficult but the grill system worked wonderfully. Food was good but not outstanding endless kimchi was a bit much. Still a good meal and time.
