I dined here three times and fully understand that those who are used to typical low-end Korean restaurants may complain about Gaonnuri, a new concept of "Korean" restaurant. It is different from typical Korean restaurants in the following ways. 1. Gaonnuri is simply amazing WOW with a 270 degree open view on the 39th floor over the mid-Manhattan buildings. The place fits important, romantic, anniversary, or very personal meetings best. 2. Related to above, its ambience is upscale. You don't see diners yell at one another or call servers freely any time. 3. Quality matters here. It doesn't mean that all their portions are small. They give a lot. What I am saying is that unlike other Korean restaurants on the 32nd St. Korea-Town it doesn't use MSG or low-quality ingredients. It imports seasonings and dried vegetables directly from Korea and purchases quality-graded meat. 4. Its food is authentic. It tries to deliver truly Korean food, not mixing non-Korean seasonings or ingredients. If you are lover of genuine, no fusion, Korean food, this is the right place for you. I strongly recommend Gaonnuri to all of you except those who are used to MSG and free refills from low-quality Korean restaurants.

This restaurant does not have any concept about Korean food. The atmosphere is like eating inside the conference room. The view is good, but that is not the reason people visit the restaurants. Service was disappointing with no genuine hospitality. Food was so so, but way too expensive for that quality. Will not recommend. Go to Empire State Building for a view.
