Very refined food great environment

The restaurant is located in 17th floor and you have the view of the river and especially in the evening the view is beautiful. The food is refined and very delicate, with the Korean culture inside. Price is a bit high, but worths this environment of dining and the quality of the food. We loved it.

I did not pay for this 70 some dollar-per-person lunch and I was a guest. All dishes were excellent. However, none was superb. The tastes were not so heavenly as to override my feelings that I might be commiting a social sin by even accepting this expensive meal while you still can suggest to your host a hearty lunch elsewhere...

Staying in Apgujeong / Cheongdam

Neighborhood Profile
Apgujeong / Cheongdam
Aside from Sinsa / Garosugil, no other area in Seoul connotes the words “luxury” and “fancy” like Apgujeong and Cheongdam. Global luxury brands have set up their flagship stores here, catering to the neighborhood's mostly affluent residents. It’s also one of the top areas in Korea (some say the world) for cosmetic surgery, attracting hundreds of thousands each year for a little nip or tuck. The other parts of Apgujeong and Cheongdam are mostly lavish residential buildings for some of Seoul’s most affluent alongside extravagant restaurants, bars, spas, and other spots for indulgence. And Cheongdam has long been a bastion for flashy clubs and parties, though in recent years, Itaewon has emerged as a strong challenger to those claims.
