Excellent Modern Korean - well deserved Michelin star. The service and food were outstanding - the dishes creative and well balanced. They even tried to accommodate my very picky eater son at no charge. Unnecessary, but very nice of them. Highly recommended.

Poom has earned its Michelin star. Usually great views and great food are inversely related. Not here. From the rooftops, we enjoyed a curated Korean tasting menu of abalone and beef; salad with persimmon; chilled pear and pomegranate dessert -- all in an ultra cool white on white setting.

Heard great things about this place so I decided to check it out. I am a Korean American so I know what Korean food tastes like and I was slightly disappointed with this place. My high expectations of this place went down after the second dish. To be honest, with a tenth of the price you pay to eat here,... More

I had great expectations of this restaurant, it was highly recommended on the Louis Vuitton guide, Carte Ville guide and a lot of websites. The food honestly is unsurprising and average, staff seemed uninterested in being welcoming or explaining the dishes, the place lacks soul and they do not offer a wine pairing suggestion/menu. For the price maybe you could... More

Restaurant located in a residential neighbourhood up on a hill. Not sure how tourists could find the place if not taking a taxi. Very beautiful surrounds overlooking the city. Eight course dinner plus desserts. Seafood on meat broth with citron sauce was amazing. I also enjoyed the Grilled Beef, dessert. The other dishes were so-so. Extremely expensive so trying once...

Went to Oct with my wife when visiting Seoul for holiday. Reservations have to be made by e-mail before hand and credit card numbers have to be given. You will have a few set menus to choose from as well. The restaurant does not serve other a la carte menu items. The place is fairly difficult to find though you... More

I was new to Korean food, especially the multi-course gourmet style, like this. The restaurant is simple but elegant and the food presentations are great. The place was very hard to find, even by our cab driver! This was quit a treat and the night (and twilight) view was good. I wouldn't mind going back again...
