This is a great and affordable fine dining experience. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. I can’t wait to return and try more dishes.

The best dining experience we’ve had in years. It’s a travesty that Jeong did not receive a Michelin star this year. The owners are gracious and super talented, the entire staff follows suit. Chicago is lucky to have Jeong as part of our already multi cultural food scene!

Absolutely one of the best restaurants in town. Blown away by the broccoli, the salmon tartare, the short ribs, the scallops and more. And the tasting menu is a mere $87, which is a compelling value. Don't be put off by the Korean name - there's no bimbimbop here - this is fine dining in a casual setting that delivers American dishes with Korean flavor accents.

Jeong was one of the best meals we have had in a long time! The tasting menu is innovative and delicious, and we couldn't help but add a few extras. Each bite was heaven and the wine was just as good as the food!

Good Korean food with a slight twist. However, many of the stuff still has very traditional and authentic aspects to it. Everything that was ordered was phenomenal.

This was one of the best dining experiences my partner and I have had. The lady running the restaurant was so kind and friendly. She gave us drinks on the house because we had to wait due to poor weather conditions and other parties showing up late. The food was fantastic! We would definitely go back!

This is hands down the best restaurant I've been to in Chicago in the past year. The tasting menu is well worth it, and they will accommodate vegetarian diners. The service is absolutely perfection-- personalized, professional, good humored and sophisticated. The sound track is controlled by the kitchen and reflects the mood in there, making the experience even more intimate

Really excellent. Biggest problem is figuring out what to eat. Pretty much every selection on both the tasting and a la carte menus seems delicious on paper and most every one we chose exceeded those high expectations. Prices are such that you can sample a lot of stuff and have a few exceptional cocktails as well. The small space doesn't feel cramped but it does get loud when full. Even though "casual" is directed, you may want to make a small effort to match up to the look and taste of the food. Sure both the tuna and steak tartare are done gorgeously and deliciously but branch out and get shocked by the broccoli and sweet potato based dessert. Only the crispy octopus (very reminiscent of a certain poultry nugget) failed to impress except for the sauce/garnish. Really want to go back and try everything we couldn't this time. Menu is broken into tasting menu (with aforementioned tartares), and 3 part a la carte (cold, hot and entrée then dessert) each with 3 choices so hopefully it changes every so often for more reasons to go back.

Went for my birthday dinner and found the setting to be lovely, the atmosphere to be very relaxed but also professional. The food was beautiful and delicious. We had the tasting menu for both food and wine and found it to be worth every penny.

Wow! This was one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a long while. We went for an early New Year’s Eve dinner, and opted for the ala carte menu. First we ordered five dishes to share, all fantastic, but a little small. My husband was still hungry. Rather than order dessert, we ordered another savory dish (as they were all sooo good) and were very happy. Everything was delicious, but our favorites were the salmon tartar from the prix fixe menu, the mandu, and the short ribs. The sauces and garnishes are all unique and so good I was ready to lick the plates. Service was great, although we did think the fishes came out a little fast. Not an inexpensive evening, but highly highly recommend.

I would recommend Jeong to a friend with a reservation. I wish the portions were little bigger. They need to increase the portions by one or two. The sashimi comes with 6 pieces and I think it should be 8. All other dishes should be increased by one. Three pieces to a dish is just an odd number all around.

The food was fantastic and the staff was so sweet! If we hadn’t had reservations planned forever other night of our vacation, I probably would’ve gone back! Such a great little gem west of the loop in a nice, quiet neighborhood.

Great food. We ordered off the a la carte menu and almost ordered everything off the menu. The cold broccoli was so delightful, the pork dumplings so fresh and the tteokbokki was great and not too saucy. Cod was so good we slurped up the broth. Short ribs so tasty. The mochi and grapefruit dessert may have been one of the best desserts I’ve had all year. Reminded me of fruit candy I had growing up. Cocktails were good - no soju?

Wow. Jeong is my new favorite upscale Asian dining experience in Chicago. I went on my birthday with three friends and Jeong got everything right. I was greeted with "Happy Birthday" as I arrived. We all did the tasting menu ($87) and it was perfection. We also did the $45 wine pairing - again - well-matched wines, some surprising choices and everything was divine. To close it out, I received a birthday candle on my dessert course AND was given a beautifully packaged cupcake to take home. Well-done, Jeong - food, service, ambiance - it is magical. Best meal of 2019, I think!
