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.

I came for the lunch menu. Five courses with fish, wine, and water and it was a little over $100. Note that the menu prices don't include tip, which is added at 20%. Super stuffy atmosphere but whatever the food is amazing and the chairs are super plush.

Had our anniversary celebration dinner in Pierre Gagnaire. Like the spacious environment and the food in general. Most of the dishes including the bread that came at the beginning are great and are better than those that I have had in Hong Kong. The service was also better, though view may not be as good as the one in Hong... More

Delicate food that you certainly want to indulge yourself in. The price is on the expensive side but definitely reasonable for the experience and taste you get. French in Seoul at its best. I mean.. it's Pierre Gagnaire.

I called this place up and made the reservation before my trip to secure a Saturday dinner reservation and informed the staff it will be my hubby's birthday. Although the two tables closest to the half-rounded windows (so with the best view) were already taken, all tables are not packed together and each also got a view even ours is... More

My wife and I celebrated our 14th Anniversary at this restaurant. It was the perfect evening. The set menu is more expensive than is listed on Trip Advisor but it was a terrific meal. The view was impressive and the dining atmosphere allowed for conversation between my wife and I.

The food was as expected from a chef restaurant. The view is absolutely amazing. Worth a visit. The ones that are going to chef restaurants on a regular basis will like it but won't be astonished

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
