Just spectacular. I and my wife was not expecting anything close to the service that we got. I will make sure to visit again whenever I am in New York and to tell all my friends about this wonderful restaurant.

This is by far worth every penny spent. The ambiance, staff and food was great. I love how certain meals are cooked in front of you even the fact that they added their twist to some of the dishes. My favorite; which is simple was the Shirley temple that I ordered which came with black cherry and black grenadine instead of red. I will be returning to this restaurant and will be recommending.

We did not get a table with a view but had really great time with our friends. Foods were really good and one of our cocktails got replaced at our request while the others were great!

They have wonderful view of midtown. May not be the best Korean BBQ for the price, but still a great place to take your friends especially if they are from out of town.

I didn't like my server and the food wasn't that good for the price. but the skyline view was amazing. The appetizer was much better than the entrees and the choices were pretty limited.

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!

I love GAONNURI, the food is simply delicious every time! And you can get very beautiful views of the city. I started going every Restaurant week to be able to try many different things for a decent price, but the quality of food and dinning experience is worth every penny.

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.
