    Overpriced and underwhelming. Lacks an ambience. Wouldn’t go again. Drinks were underwhelming as well.

    Ambience: The flat walls and open layout near other tables made it difficult to hear sometimes during conversation; this is a somewhat noisy location considering it's upscale vibe. Drinks: The cocktails were innovative and well-balanced. Premium soju "Seoul Nights' is available, at a high price but it's very good soju. Cuisine: The steamed egg appetizer is much better than average, with a little sesame oil for flavor and melted cheese over the top. Pork Belly Fried Rice was tasty and had a small kick of mild peppery flavor. Banchan was not very large selection, but all were well-made and fresh. Meat was top-quality - we ordered the large rib galbi and Australian wagyu bulgogi; both were excellently prepared for us. Note that you do not grill this yourself; the table attendant does that expertly for you. Otherwise, it might be possible to overcook the entrees, and that would be a terrible thing to do to meat of this quality. Overall: Superior quality and a fine experience. Dinner for three ran about $100 including tip - but we did not order the most expensive entrees or a dessert. I would not expect to become a regular diner, but will come back for special occasions.
