The Michelin star was well deserved! Not only the food was amazing but the waiter was super nice as well. I order the king crab noodle and truffle donabe it was so delicious! My friend order the crispy octopus I wish I got that as well it was so tender in the inside and crispy in the outside. Most places make the octopus super chewy but you can tell this place massage the octopus before cooking it. This place is so worth it.
This Korean fusion place is on point! Everything from the raw platter, to crab noodle appetizer, to braised rib risotto was absolutely delicious. Their soju cocktails were fabulous, as well!
I saw a bad review at Yelp and Google. I don’t think the restaurant deserves this kind of review after struggling with the PANDEMIC. I came here plenty of times already with my family, a big group of friends and with my boyfriend. Before and during the pandemic. If you’re writing a bad review at least use your real name and put a picture of yourself before you sabotage people’s businesses. I came to HORTUS a month ago and the outdoor dining was nice, the the the service was amazing and the food was delicious and super affordable. They have ventilation and the door was open. I think it's very selfish of people to write a bad review on restaurants right now especially they're trying their best to keep the business going for their employees. Reviews are very important to restaurants especially now. Spread love not to hate ❤️💕 and If you didn't like the place at the first place you have the rights to walk away if you feel uncomfortable.
Absolutely superb! Service was friendly and sufficient. Staff was very knowledgeable. The food was absolutely divine and the wine pairings elevated each course. Hortus is the perfect place for a intimate date night or celebration!
Excellent food, with a beautiful seating area. The fried octopus and the king crab noodle were fantastic! A great place for a date or nice dinner out
Great Service, great food! I've been here post pandemic as well as during when only outdoor dining was permitted. Excellent service! Their patio is decorated beautifully. Menu is kinda small but they change it around. I wish the steaks come out more hot(temperature wise). Great date spot too!
I went here randomly with 2 of my friends and it was amazing. So cozy and intimate and the food was immaculate. Omg. It was so good we had 2 rounds of everything we orders. The oysters 🦪 was sooooo fresh. I would definitely recommend this place. No doubt about it.
Great vibe and great food. The $30 lunch two course prefix is absolute deal breaker.
They have a wonderful outdoor space in the back, away from the street. At the time they weren't doing indoor dining due to covid but I'm not sure what their policy is now. We got the two course prix fixe with king crab noodle the ribeye.
Hortus is the kind of place where, it’s so impressive, that you want to book your next reservation before leaving. It is the epitome of excellent service and even better food. The highlights for us were the shrimp toast - how do they fry it so lightly to get the crunchy texture paired with the spicy dipping sauce THAT I COULD BATHE IN - and the beef which was seared and marinated to perfection. The combination of flavor profiles and elegant decor is truly an art form. Even the plates were stunning. I hold Mr. Jang’s venture in high regards, and look forward to my return here and not to mention his many other successful restaurants!
Wow. This is a hidden gem in NYC. I live in midtown and don’t cook, so have tried many restaurants in the city, from Michelin Starred to hole in the wall. Not only is the decor adorable here (outdoor patio decorated like a secret garden!) but the food is fantastic. The flavors are unique- it’s mostly American surf/turf type of food with a trendy Asian flavor. I don’t usually write reviews but this place stood out! Very reasonable prices too for this level of food. Will be back.
Good service, nice atmosphere. Food was good but nothing special.
Absolutely love the food every time we go. One of my wife's go to's for sure. The patio out back has been really nice during covid as well.
Stop by randomly for a lunch break. Delicious! Service was amazing too! Can’t wait to come back
Great pre fix menu. Summer noodles with crab in pesto sauce very light and refreshing. The Sea Bass was very light and fresh. The Lotus Root Chips complimented the dish very well. Highly recommend the grapefruit Soju cocktail. Great service and nice ambiance outside on the terrace.
Excellent food and an innovative drink menu. Just be prepared for small portions. Quality is excellent and worth it. Excellent food and an innovative drink menu. Just be prepared for small portions. Quality is excellent and worth it
Still great. They have adjusted their menu for covid, simpler food but still very good. Patio in the back you can eat at now that they have allowed outdoor dining!
Really fantastic place! The food was amazing and the wine pairing was even better than what I expected. The service was also high-level. Will definitely come back again with my friends in the future.
Caught up with an old friend at Hortus for dinner and quite a few drinks. Crowd was lively (acoustics were good - we could easily talk), drinks were great and food was fantastic. I particularly was taken with the tofu (and I'm not a tofu lover) & tartare appetizers - the whole fish was incredible as well. Actually, everything was delicious - sadly, I didn't snap a single photo!
Beautiful restaurant and delicious and carefully prepared food. Along with very attentive service make this a great place for lunch or dinner. I'm surprised more people don't know about Hortus. Highly recommended.
New favorite date spot. Incredible flavors, unique dishes, elegant experience. Will return again soon for a nice occasion.
