Top floor of the Lotte hotel central, splendid view, but hey, you are not just here to look outside.... The food provided is tasty, well presented. Seoul is not (yet maybe) for high end french cuisine... They just miss it.... The restaurant has not the crowd it deserves. Seoul is full of american style restaurants (because of the presence of...

Pierre Gagnaire a Seoul, the most expensive restaurant in Seoul, there are four set menus (US$170.00, US$180.00, US$265.00, and US$340.00). These are without beverages. A 4-course lunch is US$140.00. Good food, creatively presented... too expensive.

The prices for Pierre Gagnaire Seoul are outrageous but this is a rare example where the food and ambiance warrants the opulent price. The decoration of the restaurant very European with tradition beauty and top class of everything. The view from the 35th floor of the Lotte Hotel is stunning, one of the best you will experience. The service and... More

We went last Sunday for lunch. The lunch deal is reasonably priced, you can combine it with a glass of wine for 16,000 KRW, but next time we skip the champagne which is about triple that price. The food was excellent, nice selection of breads. We had the veal as a main dish, very tender and tasty. Was a nice... More

Awesome location, decor and view. Classic French fine dining with great wine list. Food all very good and generally very well balanced, well presented and cooked to bring out the best of the produce. Service a little patchy for $500+ lunch. Excellent and attentive at times but don't expect to have to refill our own wine glasses twice over duration... More

I am reviewing the bar area of this restaurant. This is one of my favorite bars in Korea because of the amazing bartenders' skill, view of Namsan and Namsan tower, and handsome and sleek interior. The drinks here are all mixed to perfection and bottle service costs less than to be expected at a hotel bar. There are two rooms... More

The restaurant was amazing, romantic full in the air. My boyfriend and I had quite a great dinner here. French food here must be the best in Seoul. Although, it’s quite expensive, but that’s what it cost for a romantic fancy night in one of the most expensive cities in the world

If you need a break from shopping and are looking for a delicious dining experience where classical French food and service come together with excellence, make a reservation at Pierre Gagnaire on the 35th floor of the Lotte Hotel. There is a selected four course menu and although it may seem pricey, I found it to be a great value... More

You walk into the restaurant and you are no longer in Seoul. With the high ceilings and European antique furniture and real books (there are restaurants that paint the books on the walls). This restaurant is a treat, because it is expensive, but the quality was pretty good. Not Joel Robuchon good, but this is the best current French restaurant... More
