Dons Bogam Black
Very good. My companion is a 'picky' eater so I was worried about whether she would like what she ordered but that was no problem. She polished off the whole bowl of bibibmap.
The staff was very friendly although when busy it can be hard to get someone’s attention. The food was absolutely amazing and I would definitely go back.
Food and service are awesome. Best ban chan assortment I've had in a while.
However, slightly pricey, so go hungry and don't leave anything on your plate.
The food is always great & good quality here. Very attentive server as well. Nice ambiance for Korean BBQ. I highly recommend.
Excellent introduction to Korean bbq for a squeamish date.
The meats were fatty. Too fatty.
Maybe I had great expectations going in, but the food was medicore at best and banchan was severely underwhelming...like 5-6 side dishes.
Usually for a korean bbq of this caliber, I usually see VERY tasty side dishes at around 20+ variety.
The meats, were just "meh" and their selection were limited. For $200+ it just wasn't worth it.
All around just okay, but the price point would suggest otherwise.
Changed table three times because the burners were not working... they even had to cook our dishes on another table. They got us an extra small bottle of Soju but never even said they were sorry! What happened??? That place used to be great...!!! At least the bartender was great. But please... teach your staff customer service. Especially when you have 16 clients on a Friday night!!! You are obviously going to close soon! Eric
The service and food was great!!! Looking forward to coming again. I think this will be my new favorite Korean food place.
Expensive for what it is. The meat was okay, not great cuts, and for that price it seemed like very inexpensive cuts of meat. Service is very attentive but not always informative (it was our first time at a Korean BBQ and we weren't entirely sure of how the meal 'worked.'). While the restaurant is quite large and can be noisy, tables are really well space so there was no issue with having conversations at our table. It's a fun night given the bbq set up, out but for the same price, a group can have really outstanding cuisine at a top restaurant.
Excellent location, food is fresh, delicious and authentic. The service is exceptional, they are very accommodating and pleasant. Can’t be better.
This is the second time my wife and I have dined here. We love the experience, the Staff & the food is fantastic. We will definitely tell all of our friends and be back. Thanks
Awesome food outstanding cheerful service.
Nice restaurant and like it!
Food does not compare to the original place on 32. Mediocre to say the list Tried once but defiantly will go back to the original. I think their cooking electric has lot to do with it.
Some waiters were terrible, somehow they seemed to be frustrated and bad attitude we found.
This restaurant consistently provides wonderful food and attentive service. It is a good venue for friends to gather and enjoy one another’s company.
John was our server and he made our dining experience superb! The cocktails were creative and delicious and the Kobe for two was out of this world!! We will definitely be returning!
My friends and I enjoyed a feast for a luncheon! We began with seafood pancake and glass noodles apps, followed by kalbi bibimbap for one, and shared bulgogi lunch special for two, served with an impressive array of vegetable wraps, choice of stew where we chose seafood tofu stew and a huge container of ssamjang sauce. Everything was delicious! It tweaks up Korean cuisine to a universal higher level. Definitely enjoying lunch there is a better value and an affordable way to try the restaurant.
Food is good
This became one of my faves. Good food & service. There is nothing that I don’t like about. The sparerib noodle soup is to die for!
Service was top notch, as usual. So nice to enjoy everything, the whole dining experience. Well done Don’s management. 수고했읍니다.
We love the original Dons Bogam but we were rather disappointed with this version. The servers were disorganized and were not knowledgeable. The pork belly was over cooked. No one came to ask us how the food was or if we needed anything else. Decor was very sparse and seemed like an afterthought. Just in general not nearly as nice as original restaurant. We wont be back to this one.
Exceptionally good food. Quite noisy but good fun. Really good food and helpful suggestions by the server. Overall a good experience - highly recommended.
Service attempted to be helpful but was mostly clumsy. On three different occasions they delivered food intended for other tables, and it took some effort on our part to explain that to them. But they tried to be helpful.
Food quality is very good, but the fundamental issue I have here is that the restaurant deviates from the very important cultural spirit of Korean food. One of the primary fundamental elements of Korean food is the spirit of generosity, Don's Bogam fails miserably in this area. Paying top dollar is fine, butt offerings would be appreciated and are usually present at nearly every other Korean BBQ establishment in the world. Not single "service" or complimentary item was offered despite a very high bill. This is the equivalent of not getting a single buyback at a bar where you spend a lot of money. Leaves a poor taste in your mouth if you know Korean food and culture at all. It's a pity because the food is good and a cheap free casserole or soup would go a long way without costing them nearly anything.
This is my first time at this Korean establishment. Is definitely the most upscale in the area. The service was okay and the food was seasoned well. I don't know how high quality the meat was for the Bimibap, but overall the meal was good. I may try it again in the future but not in an immediate hurry to
The quality of the food was superb!!! The water was sooo good, I didn't need to order drinks. The service was excellent! Will be back for sure.
Great location; Sometimes the VERY attentive wait staff makes the food taste better :-)
Dons is more elegant than the original. The cuts of meat are superior as well as not frozen. But the panchan and naemyong were good as any in K-town. Plus, the wait staff was superb.
The food and service are terrific. The prices are a tad high, but everything was delicious!
The best Korean bbq in NYC, there’s no exaggeration.
Mundane food and menu. Expensive.
Having been a 15-year customer of the original I went to the new Dons to try and compare. The "Black" Dons seems to be aiming at a more upscale experience. The space is very large and well suited for big groups. Conversely, it can feel a bit empty. Prices are similar, quality is similar.
Great ambience and service. The best quality Korean BBQ in Manhattan
Love the Ssam! So healthy...and high quality beef
The food is very unique and tasty. The cuts of meat are fresh and deliciously seasoned. The servers and service is exceptional and the atmosphere is like no other restaurant in NYC. Keep in mind that there is a limited drink menu due to their use of Soju (Korean Rice liquor) instead of traditional spirits but the drinks are amazing nonetheless. Definitely recommend making a reservation as the place gets busy on peak nights.
