All I have to say is WOW. Freaking WOW! Considering our previous experience with Korean food was limited to Bon Chon chicken (which we love) we came to this restaurant full of anticipation. The restaurant itself is lovely. High ceilings, modern feel, over the top service. The wine list is expansive. It covers every high-end winery from every region. The... More

An unassuming interior belies the confident and top level presentations from the kitchen. The service is quietly assertive when it needs to be, and "hover / hidden" otherwise. Each offering is clear in it's flavor components, and each resulted in a combination that acheived a sum greater than its parts. That's difficult to achieve in a dish, but to reach... More

The food was divine - the Korean chef deserves a medal as the cuisine was better than anywhere I have eaten in Seoul or, dare I say, even New York. The Michelin rating is soundly deserved and he should get a three stars. The service and minimalistic add to the experience but, frankly, it is all about the food!

Great experience and food. We had the tasting menu. The Royal Bibimbap and the Octopus were the highlights of the meal. The restaurant also has a very good selection of wine. Definitely worth a visit.

Upon entering Jungsik, you might find it very pretentious. This is definitely a 'fine dining' restaurant (contrary to what I had expected... seeing that it was Korean food!) The other diners there were all very dressed up. After being seated, our server came over to introduce the menu, which really needed a little deciphering. It was categorised into their version...

Absolutely everything about this dinner was perfect! The service, the food, ambiance. I have waited to be able to post a review for a meal that I felt was truly exceptional and this one earned it for sure. Every bite was perfectly balanced in flavours and textures while being beautifully presented. It is hard to bring words to something that... More

We walked by the restaurant and just gave it a shoot to grab a table without reservation. We got lucky, 3 people seated immediately midweek at 8:30PM! I have heard and read about the restaurant but positively surprised about the place when we walked to our table. Very classy! The menu had quite a few items which I wanted to... More

This restaurant is deserving of it's Michelin status. We did an a la carte menu. The waiter was incredibly helpful with suggestions regarding his favorite items on the menu. Everything we had was so delicious it was worthy of licking your plate clean. I would highly recommend this place.

"Soup to Nuts!"..Best Food and Best Service in NYC. This restaurant surpassed all of my expectations. I would recommend the tasting menu which we opted out on because we wanted to try things off the menu and we thought we would be there all night. I wished we had gone for it!
