Overall Amazing

The atmosphere was amazing as was the food and the service. I went on a whim without a reservation accompanied by my 10 year old son and they were still able to seat us. The staff was very pleasant, professional and accommodating. A little pricey, but an amazing experience.

I thought that this was a 3 star michelin rated restaurant (seoul). Evidently I was wrong? the french branch is. Saying that, this is an extraordinary restaurant on its own. Had the "spirit" menu (most expensive)which had the finest ingredients, including black truffles, foie gras, lobster, abalone, premium beef, scallops,.... a feast. I"m not a gourmet diner, but I appreciated... More

The Restaurant is located on the top most floor of Lotte Hotel (the 35th floor of the New Wing). Just so you are aware, security here is very tight! Our cab driver stopped us at the main wing of the Lotte Hotel…and as we entered, we were immedaitely approached by well-dressed hotel security men asking how they could assist us.... More

The view from the restaurant was so spectacular. Highly recommend the 9-course set menu which is truly great gourmet experience, especially the beef was juicy and tender. Outstanding service with smile and care, look at the details and had fun. Worldwide selections from the wine list with reasonable prices. We spent 4 hours long here and we don't want to... More

My husband brought me here to this extravagant establishment for my birthday as a surprise. This place is very worthy of the 3 Michelin stars it has been awarded. It was a 10 course meal at least, although I lost count after course 7. The taste and presentation of each course was exquisite. The service impeccable with many waiters intuiting... More

This place has everything you want in a top-notch restaurant. Though Seoul has no Michelin starred restaurants, this is the closest there is. Beautiful decor with amazing views over Seoul's skyline, fantastic favors and service that is second to none. Here's a place you must visit when in Seoul, if money is not an issue that is!

It was for a second time that we visited the restaurant. I expect that more visits will follow but we like to keep it for special occasions. When some say 'pricey' I must add that there are choices. We were with three persons and all had a different menu. One based on seafood, one meat based and a 6, rue... More

I love traditional French food and scout it out wherever I go. This restaurant has great ambiance and a great view of Seoul. As soon as you step off the elevator you are greeted by an elegant foyer and by the staff. The attentive device continued throughout dinner. I ordered the grand tasting menu, and was disappointed at each course.... More

We had a wonderful dinner in Seoul. The restaurant propose several menus, but they accomodate my allergy to seafood easily. The room offer an impressive view on Seoul and the service was super attentive.
