I attended a work function at Gaonnuri and once I found it, i had a great evening!

The restaurant is located on the 39th floor of 1250 Broadway and the entrance is on 32nd St.

The views were spectacular and the food was mostly Korean and Asian and very tasty.

I can't say enough about the staff and they were so friendly, helpful and were always smiling. I wish them the best of luck and wish them much success. Go and try this place!

Gaonnuri is located on the 39th floor of the building, so you can imagine the terrific view you have.
The place is very nice.
The service is attentive and fast.

The food is very good and well presented.

Great for both Lunch and Dinner.

And the prices are quite reasonable.

We love asian influenced food. If you do too, then come here! The staff, as always in the States, are efficient and friendly, and like Asiate, the views are amazing! We had a bbq at our table, which was a nice touch. We went on a Friday night and the place was buzzing. The tables were full, the food was great., I would say this is an ideal place to go to before hitting a bar/club afterwards. It almost had a pre-club feel about it, without the loud music. The majority of people there when we went were mid 20's to late 30's, but that shouldn't discourage older people from dining here. The food is great, the staff, you can tell, like working there, and it has a great central location. Highly recommend.

Visited over Thanksgiving Weekend and was impressed by this restaurant. The entrance is rather surreal, like a movie, one woman behind a desk in a deserted dark lobby, who then checks your name, takes you up a lift where you are greeted by many people, music and a generally a very good vibe when the lift doors open. Our table was sadly away from the window, however we still had a good late night view of NYC which was beautiful. The food was better than i expected, we had two courses plus the table BBQ, the salads where distinctively good also. Our waiter was helpful and also attentive. I found the bill much lower than expected given the setting, service and food which added further to my positive opinion of this place. I would definitely recommend it to others.

An upscale Korean restaurant with beautiful view and only decent food in smaller portions. Don’t expect to get any banchan (side dishes) if you are not ordering BBQ. It sounds so strange to me that the banchan only come with BBQ, are those dishes supposed to come with any Korean meal??? Service was okay and our server was not very attentive, well, maybe we didn't order drinks!?
