The service was really bad. No one asked how our food was or if we needed more water (we did- the food was spicy!). The server never brought the check, we had to go ask for it and take up the credit card ourselves. The food was actually pretty good, but was a little pricey and we left still hungry. All and all I wouldn't recommend this- it was nothing spectacular and the service was way too slow.

Hey Mathew... sorry for the poor experience. I'm learning that delivrering food isn't necessarily the easiest way to impress people with your food. Just so you know nothing has changed here as far as personnel or management. We are still working hard to put out the best stuff possible using the best ingredients we can get a hold of... In any case, I want to apologize for our poor performance last time. I really appreciated your critical but kind words regarding Dokebi. If you are on myspace, please contact me there. I really want to make it up to you in some way. myspace.com/Dokebibar Thanks so much for your constructive words. Best Chul.

I have been here twice and have enjoyed both times. This is one place I definitely recommend for people to go to especially if you're up to trying to types of food. The food is delicious, the service is great and the ambiance is somewhat romantic- good place for a date.

the last time i went to dokebi, the servers were super nice. they were very attentive, always discreetly stopping by and not interrupting us. we felt very cared for at dokebi. i had absolutely no issues with the service! even my glass of water was always full! the food itself, and presentation were very good. we ordered the table grill and some side meals (bibimbap...of course) to share. i think it's great to come here with friends and share a million dishes. it's totally worth it! you could also be satisfied with ordering your own dish, but i always want something else so i would recommend sharing. yum, my new favorite thing on the menu is ttuckpokki, the spicy rice cakes in chili sauce. yum. if you want more than what you bargained for, i would go to dokebi. good fusion. not authentic korean, but they are self proclaimed fusion, so stop complaining!

I'm writing this hoping they'll do a better at keeping consistency. I normally like their food, been there many, many times and have enjoyed the various stews and Bibimbops. Also, there's not another Korean joint which we can order from, so I very much hope today's experience is an 'accident'. We eagerly ordered our kimchee stew, ttuckPokki and Fried Pork Gyoza but to find the Kimchee stew was so watered down, lacked any flavor, felt like they washed some Kimchee and used the left over water to make the stew. The Ttuck Pokki looked like someone ate most of it and left us few strip of rice cake, the Gyoza wasn't bad but it was still very cold, and the small garnish dishes that came with it tasted like they washed the floor with it... The only thing that was consistent was the beer I ordered - still fresh from a can. I've eaten Korean food all my life, I'm not saying Dokebi is the greatest or the worst. They're normally good, and they're the only one in our neighborhood.. so please, let this be a fluke, and please keep up your regularly good consistency with the quality of your food.

everything is good here! it's clean, music is good, it's casual but the service is warm and great, they are real people there, food is delicious, the food comes out fast, sights are good, decorated with interesting real art. i don't know what to say! i'm here all the time and i'm a bit of a foodie! the stuff is healthy too!

Dokebi definitely deserves some attention- this is my favorite place to eat in Williamsburg. The food is awesome, and the service is ridiculous. If you take a sip of water, a guy appears magically and is refilling it before it even touches the table. The bibimbap is amazing, but get it in the stone bowl, and smash everything to the sides, be patient and let the rice get crunchy. (you'll see) They deserve some props, everyone should try it out.
