We tried the pre-fixe dinner and it was a nine course meal. The food was great, the presentation is superb and the service and ambiance is fantastic. I thought in the beginning that the portions were too small that I'll end up still hungry at the end but it was just perfect. The portion is very good!

After reading all the reviews on tripadvisor we were so excited to go to Jungsik. Unfortunately we felt quite disappointed when we left. What was good: * Nice atmosphere * Staff was very nice BUT: We are used to European Michelin standard, and I believe they must use different standards for their Michelin stars than the Michelin restaurants we tried...

Dining at Jungsik is an outstanding experience. It is described as contemporary Korean food but that doesn't quite do it justice. I'd say this, "contemporary Korean food with accents, flavors and styles of France, Spain and Asia." It is fine dining at it's best. Everything was special -- the ambiance, the service, the food. Wow. It is not inexpensive but... More

I tried a number of 2 and 3 star michelin restaurants in NY and Jungsik is the one I like the best. In most 2 or 3 star michelin restaurants, they only serve tasting menus and these are typically 7 to 9 courses. As I do not eat a lot, I find it wasteful to force myself to complete all... More

After three nights of great eating in NYC (Nobu, Beauty & Essex and Baltazars), we wanted something a little more understated, less crowded and not so noisy... As soon as we entered, I was signed in relief that I had made the effort to dress up and wear a nice jacket as would feel out of place without one. Although... More

We came here for our final dinner of our NYC stay, and we were not disappointed. We had the tasting menu, which was just a whirlwind of amazing flavours, textures and presentation. Didn't do the wine pairing, but the wine list is superb and we found a really good bottle. It's not overpriced either. The ambience is warm, the decor... More

We had a lovely dinner at Jungsik in September and were able to experience their 3 year anniversary 9 course menu. We had fantastic service from friendly and well informed staff and the most tender octopus ever! A pricey evening out but worth it for a special occasion!

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
