    It's a very nice place with great vibes and views. You really pay for the on-table cooking.The bbq is so so. The meat was full of gristle and rubbery. I've had Wagu many times and this was not a good version. The sides are many but small. Glass noodles are terrific. Martini was tiny at $22. Service is pleasant.

    One of my favorite restaurants of all time. I used to live down the street and had not been back since moving 3 year ago. The view is spectacular and a real history lesson of the NYC skyline. The staff couldn't not be nicer and our server was very knowledgable about the food. The y also surprised me a birthday cake which was so sweet. This place is NOT to be missed.

    The place has two levels. We were being initially seated on the higher level, where nobody else was seated we asked to sit on the main floor near the windows, and they accommodated us, which was wonderfull. The waiter was excellent. The food was great and timely. We will definitely return.

    What an amazing experience!! We came for restaurant week and had a wonderful dinner. The food was delicious and our server expertly gave us recommendations that we enjoyed. For appetizers we had the sweet and spicy chicken and the Haemul Pajun (scallion pancake) which was SO GOOD and unlike anything I’ve tried before. For BBQ we had the marinated Galbi with a tasty flavor, and we upgraded to Wagyu for one BBQ and it was PERFECT. Best steak I’ve ever had. The BBQ was definitely the highlight as they sear and cut it right in front of you and their meat is very high quality. The overall ambience was lovely with amazing views of midtown Manhattan and friendly staff. This restaurant can be pricey, but with the restaurant week menu you are definitely getting well beyond your moneys worth. I highly recommend a trip here!!
