We had less than 2 hours and still wanted to try the 9 course tasting menu. They were very accommodating and we were out the door precisely at the time we told them we had to leave. The food was creative and delicious with several surprises along the way. The most impressive was the ink squid panko crusted deep fried... More

We dined here with some guests from Japan. We had the 9 course tasting menu with some wine and a few drinks. Our bill was astronomical. While almost all dishes were inventive and good to very good, not one dish blew me away. Some were just mediocre including the main dish, which was a choice between squab, which was lukewarm... More

Located in a non descriptor neighborhood near the Holland Tunnel, this is one of those new age-y places, very upscale, filled with pretty people, serving tiny bits of food on pieces of slate, oddly shaped dishes and bowls, etc. The wait staff is condescending but very efficient...even pretty. The food presentation is outstanding. Each dish is a picture of balance... More

My son and I enjoyed a long and too filling dinner here recently. He had heard of the reputation but we knew little about the spot. We pretty much put the ordering in their hands and we enjoyed all we got! It is adventurous, tasty and filling.

Returned to Jungsik for dinner. It's been more than a year since my last (and first) visit. I was welcomed as if I were a "regular" which I may become based on tonight's exquisite dinner. Service was wonderful: knowledgeable, friendly and attentive by everyone. Definitely Michelin 2 star (if not 3 star) quality. Last time I had the Tasting Menu,... More

My wife and I wanted to try something new to us and all we can say is wow! This place was perfect in our opinion from food, presentation, service, wine...etc. This is on the top of our list to return to when we are back in NYC later this year. An absolutely amazing evening!!!

I have already recommended this restaurant to my colleagues that goes often to NYC for business and that end up in the same good and fancy French / American restaurants every time. This is truly something! I had the tasting menu, but instead of the full wine pairing, I had the sommelier recommend some fewer glasses of wine instead, that... More

Myself and boyfriend dined here on the last night of our trip to NYC. Having been truly spoilt by eating in Le Bernadin, Daniel and Colicchio and sons we were both a bit apprehensive about what Jungsik could offer. We need not have worried! From the warm welcome to getting us a taxi at the end, the service was terrific.... More

Because Jungsik was the first Korean restaurant to be awarded 2 Michelin stars I hate to say it but I was disappointed. I would not call this a Korean restaurant by any means. Yes, the name of the place as well as the Chef/Owner is Korea, however it was more of a seafood restaurant with Korean influences. Although, we were... More

I hate to be a nay sayer, but our experience at Jungsik was less than stellar. We were a group of six friends, all fairly sophisticated about food, and all looking forward to an exceptional meal. The food was generally quite good, and some dishes (for example the mushrooms and the crispy snapper) were beautifully presented. However, the portions were... More
