Atmosphere is adorable .. Perfect for a first date .. And the portions are perfect for a first date .. Neither side has to worry about looking like a "pig"... Having said that, go for a first date and that's it.. Your second date should be Korea town where u get the proper size portions of the exact same food for a 1/4 of the price.., won't go back but glad I went at least once...very very expensive for what u get ...

The food at this place was out of this world. The paella was delicious and the tofu dish was quite literally the best tofu I have ever had. They made tofu taste like heavenly cheese. However, the service was not great (the waitress had a bit of an attitude) and the small tapas plates (priced at about $12-15 each) add up to a lot of money fast. But the food made it all worth it. So delicious.

This place was great. I too read great reviews about it and decided to check it out. The place is small and filled up fast, service was great because even if our waiter wasn't availavbel, someone else was checking in on us. The steak tartare was puzzling (my first), but REALLY GOOD (the paella was a bit mushy, the noodles (with the whelch salad) were refreshing and perfectlty done). My friend and I got three dishes and came out stuffed, so I say the prices are very fair. They encourage sharing portions and warn you that they are tapas sized; you know what you're getting into.

To make it very simple not enough food for the prices warranted. The food was excellent, great flavors, left you wanting more, but that was just the problem. Very very small portions and the bill adds up quickly. Great experience overall until the bill and that left a bad taste in my mouth.

After reading such positive reviews of Danji, and being generally excited about the concept, I had to check it out for myself. A true disappointment to say the least! Hats off to them for picking up on the "trend of the moment" and making themselves some money - because they are doing that to be sure! Even if I were not Korean-American, anyone who has an interest in gastronomy and rudimentary knowledge of asian food would be greatly underwhelmed by the offering at Danji - which could be acceptable if they weren't charging obscene prices for some of the most basic dishes imaginable. The most infuriating part of the meal was the couple forkfuls of $10 Japchae (one of the most basic korean dishes - glass noodles with a shaving of beef and veg), and the braised short ribs....or should I say "rib". Let me expand on that one - for $16, we received ONE (3in.) short rib, one pearl onion, one corner piece of carrot, and one 2in fingerling potato....you have got to be kidding me!! that was what put it over the top for me and my dining party. We just got robbed. Anyway, to sum up - if you don't mind uninspired, ridiculously overpriced (for what they're offering) dishes, please go to Danji - otherwise I say, just walk a few blocks and get a likely much better korean meal that will satisfy.

I went here last week with two friends and was greeted by a wonderful host, who apologized for a little delay (we went during prime dinner time, so it was our fault really) and seated us promptly as soon as some seats opened up. Our server Maji was so sweet and patient since we couldn't decide on what to order, since everything sounded amazing, but we settled on the poached sablefish, bulgogi sliders, kimchi paella, spicy thai wings, braised short rib, and mocha chiffon cake. Everything was amazing, but if we had to choose only two things, we would order (if we could) the bulgogi sliders and poached sablefish over and over again. They were literally melt-in-your-mouth delicious, the seasoning and texture were pitch-perfect, and everything was overall amazing. Great for sharing, tasting, and an inventive, unforgettable meal.

Unique fare -- Korean Tapas -- and each one that we had was a taste sensation. The delightful staff and chefs here come from some very upmarket restaurants and are definitely foodies. My husband and I had the calamari, the short ribs, paella. All very, very tasty. We also had beef stew which -- although tasty -- was too spicy for me. (My husband ate it.:) They couldn't have been more welcoming and accomodating. Signature Cocktail was also excellent. (can't remember the name just now - it was vodka-based and something to do with pear and vanilla). Will definitely go again.
