Some aspects of our dining experience were special, while others disappointed. If the prices were less stratospheric I would rate the restaurant with a 4 rather than a 3. The hands-down winner among our a la carte picks was the fried oyster appetizer - wonderfully briny, with a textural yin-yang courtesy of a breadcrumb coating and sitting atop a dime-size... More

First, the food. Completely unique and complex dishes that make you try to tease apart the flavors and figure out what incredible cominbation was put together to create such a symphony. Being very familiar with Korean flavors, I recognized many subtle elements, but had never seen them in such contemporary techniques. I decided to create my own tasting menu and... More

I was taken by my wife who was looking for a culinary birthday present somewhat outside the standard haute cuisine of nyc ie French or Italian. Jungsik evidently has an original in Korea and this is its first US outpost. Walking in you really would have very little idea that the restaurant is Korean - as opposed to French or... More

Wonderful nine-course new year's tasting menu from white truffled samplers to shiitake soups to kimchi and glazed wagu steak and fried oysters, each course was a small gastronomic ethereal experience. We combined it with wines we love from their extensive --literally extensive-- wine list. Very impressive --each plate had a perfect melding of at least six- seven Flavors resulting in... More

Expensive, no doubt. But wonderful. First of all, a beautiful room, elegant yet not stuffy. Food matched, luscious and playful. Delicious flavors, beautifully presented. Service was perfect, no hovering, casual enough but perfect without pretentiousness. I give it a wow. But don't even think of going if you're not prepared to spend a small fortune. And don't go if you're... More

Upscale Korean is not the right description at all here. A bit hard to define, maybe closer to French with Korean flavors. Dishes were quite good, we liked the fried oysters and the wagyu and black cod were great as were the desserts but the uni was surprisingly underwhelming. Would come back to try other dishes.

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
