We celebrated new years day at this restaurant. The place is clean and well-organized. The service was good while the food was tasty. Galbichim and sujeongkwa were the best.

Okay, I admit. I am spoiled. Growing up with grandparents from North Korea (refugee from North during Korean war) that had a Hotel in North aort of makes you be a culinary snob. So when I go to restraunts, especially Traditional Korean restraunts, I am rather picky. There have been two restraunts that made me sit down and sigh "this... More

You can never be wrong in this famous place, when it comes to Korean food. Just so good in every way, except the price.

We had the taster menu which I was a bit wary of at first because in many asian restaurants (particularly Chinese) these are for non natives. However this their speciality. Their menus give you the opportunity to try many small dishes. The problem was we were just 2 people and there was way too much food. Formal atmosphere where you... More

This is one of our favorite Korean restaurants. A nice array of dishes served in a more formal style in private rooms. Favorites include the 9-dish pancake, bibimbap, soups and BBQ.

While Korean cuisine conjures images of people enjoying a festive table of exotic vegetables and marinated dishes, YongSuSan take a different approach. A more formal traditional style restaurant where you're escorted into individual rooms just for you and your party. Servers are polite and dressed in traditional "han-bok." The prices are reasonable, and a tasting menu is available for those... More

3.5 stars, YongSuSan is truly A-Ok. It's funny because we used to pass by this place all the time, but we never felt the need to give it a whirl. The only reason we did was because of a vendor recommendation. My photographer for my wedding was Korean and he said THE spot for Korean in-laws meeting for the first... More

Somewhat pricey, but they delivered value. Flavors were true, service was good. Valet did not have entrance fee. We took an infant and a toddler, and your own little room is just great. I would definitely return.

Fine Korean dining. Wonderful selection of all that Korean food has to offer. Many Korean restaurants are down home and typically specialize in one type of dish - Soon Tofu, Bibimbap, Korean BBQ etc. This restaurant offers smaller portions of several types of Korean food, and all are wonderfully prepared. If you have a Korean businessman you are trying to... More
