Went to this restaurant last night. The best meal and dining experience I've ever had. It was pouring rain outside, and they started with glasses of hot tea and a blanket for my wife. Five amuse-bouches to start (all delicious), the wines were excellent as was my beer (Flemish sour ale). Every course was amazing.
I think what really made the difference was how well the drinks paired with the food, and how the courses used local (and sometimes ancient) ingredients I'd never heard of, and prepared in novel ways with flavor combinations I didn't know existed. Each course had an explanation of the ingredients (both in English and Korean), and several courses were served by the owner/chef Jun Lee himself.
You'll have to pay a deposit when you make a reservation. Totally worth it, and when you go you'll see why this is done. The meal takes 2+ hours, and there are only 12-15 seats total in the restaurant.
Getting here was a bit of a challenge, as the closest Metro stop is the Express Bus Terminal, and it's a 10-minute walk (from the closest exit, #5) with poor signage. Walk south along the west side of Banpo-daero, turn right on the street after the Aston Martin dealer (Banpo-daero 39-gil), walk up the hill to the T, and turn left. The valet booth says SOIGNE on the top.
