Excellent overall experience. The food was excellently prepared and cooked. The service is perfect - informative and friendly. The progression of the signature tasting menu was great with each dish taking you to a new place. The cutlery and plates were a great tactile experience. The more experiential dishes were fun but would love to have more of them. Would love to go back and try the seasonal menu.

This was our second time at Jungsik. On both occasions the food was amazing, the service excellent, and the ambiance calming. Even though each dish was exquisitely plated, the dishes tasted like comfort food. This is refined, modern Korean cuisine executed at a very high level. Their two Michelin stars are well deserved. Bravo!!

This thoughtlessly overpriced establishment is trying to recreate or great a fusion Korean based servings. Korean food doesn’t require this much manipulation to be great.

You must come to try the dessert tasting menu. It is fantastic and the service was wonderful and we had the visit of the pastry chef at the end who came to say hi.
Best experience ever

Among the four of us at dinner, with over 250 person-food-years amongst us, this was probably the best dining experience any of us has ever had. The decor, the service, attention, presentation, nuance and food are almost beyond description. Gracious, attentive and knowledgeable, the staff was omnipresent without being intrusive or overbearing. Their attention to detail was exquisite. The precision, beauty, and serendipity of each course was only surpassed by the incredible melding of tastes in every morsel of each bite. Joyous surprise awaits!

Had the seasonal menu, only the sea urchin and cod dishes were standouts, the rest not really memorable, which is the requisite for restaurant at this price range. Service and ambiance were precise but not necessarily warm or personal. Overall very good, but not exceptional.

It was really nice to have the name of the birthday party printed on the menu, a nice touch! It would be good to dim the lights a little to create more intimate dining experience. There was also a moment where the lead server was seemingly replaced by another server and that was a little confusing.

I would say it's more Korean influenced food rather than Korean food. Overall the food on the price fix menu was good, though $65 supplement for royal bibimbap is a little excessive given the portion was so tiny, and it's not even remotely similar to actual bibimbap. Also I couldn't bring myself to eat the pigeon, though they were able to swap it out a beef dish. Very overpriced though considering quantity of food, and though it's good overall it's not anything exceptional.

It’s always a risk going back to a restaurant you’ve previously had one of the best meals of your life at ... I needn’t have worried. Our dinner was as sublime as last time. Outstanding service, outstanding food, lovely ambiance ... what’s not to like. Can’t wait to go back for round 3!

This was my third time at Jung Sik; I celebrated my 70th birthday there in 2013, and the occasion was my 76th on Saturday 01/12/2019. I think everything from the cuisine to the service was of an even higher calibre than at my previous visit. My fiancee was thrilled beyond all expectations and could not praise the entire experience any more enthusiastically. There were numerous soju's on the drink menu, and I do not
recall their being available. Since I have lived in Korea, I found soju a great accompaniment to the meal.

Everything was incredible. I was alone and chose to sit at the bar to order the octopus and the urchin a la carte instead of doing the seasonal or signature tasting menus. The dashi braised octopus was the best I’ve ever had. So tender and subtly crispy! The uni was a fascinating take on bibimbap, the flavors blending delightfully in each bite. I also did the dessert tasting menu, which was incredible. Since I was alone, I was talking to the bartender (I never caught his name) and the assistant manager (Ms. Chung, I believe) throughout my time there. They both made me feel very welcome. All in all, I had a lovely time!
