The marinated kalbi and the prime ribeye were amazing and are our favorite go-to items whenever we come here. Their soups are amazing too. The view is beautiful. This is a great place to take a date or celebrate a special occasion. Their non-alcoholic drink, the “yuzu fresh,” is very delicious and is highly recommended for those who don’t drink alcohol.

My first time trying Korean barbecue and boy was it amazing. I’m glad I chose to go to Gaonnuri for my first time. The view was to die for. Rich was our server that evening and was extremely kind and knowledgeable. I’m from central Virginia so I’m not in NYC as often but the next time I’m in the city I will be heading back.

It was wonderful. They were very understanding even though we were just a teeny bit late because the garage we had reserved was not accessible so we had to scurry to find another parking arrangement. The staff was friendly and the food was great like always! Love the ambiance and the beautiful view of the city!

Starting from maitre d’ who was shining up to a table while ignoring the people (us) waiting to be seated. Then overly intrusive wait staff on other end of spectrum. Mediocre food and high prices. Only thing going for this place is the views of downtown Manhattan.

We came here for my mothers Birthday. The place has a great views of the city and has a very classy vibe. The host and server were very attentive and friendly from the time we set food off of the elevator. Over all our stay was very enjoyable and the food delicious. Would recommend to anyone looking for a date night out or a special event. Thanks for everything Gapnnuri!

The scenery was great, however the food was not. Food was very bland and had absolutely no flavor. Waiter got a little annoyed that I wanted to put salt on my meat which I found weird. Rarely checked on us, we thought we’d be able to cook ourselves however that wasn’t the case.
