    4 star review  This restaurant is beautiful and the food was amazing. The seating experience wasn't great. Looking at your watch and telling me I have an exact amount of time takes away from the experience, and we were well within the time frame. Our server was fantastic and the wine pairings were good.

    5 star review  The food is amazing! It reminded me of my mom’s home cooked meals, but elevated and thoughtfully presented. We ate in the terrace and it was beautiful with nice greenery. There was a heater, so I wasn’t too chilly. The service was prompt and meticulous. We’ll be back to explore more of their menu 🙂

    5 star review  Hands down one of the best meals we’ve had in NYC to date. The octopus was insanely good and every dish we had was absolutely delicious. So glad we found this place and definitely coming back when we are in town.

  • 5 star review  This place is such a hidden gem in Midtown. I enjoyed everything here - food, drink, ambience, service, and its reasonable price. They have live jazz music every Thursday which really made our hang night perfect. Thank you Hortus! Definitely will return.

    5 star review  This place never disappoints. I love that the menu is constantly evolving. Every time you go you see something new, but still see the dishes that are the biggest winners in this restaurant (the eggplant, king crab noodles, branzino, I can keep going because they are all incredible dishes) The service is also amazing, it's fine dining but in a relaxed atmosphere. I've taken friends that visit from out of town who are real foodies and every time everyone is so happy that I took them there. Hortus is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC.

  • 5 star review  Hortus hears a hoot. This place is innovative beyond belief and executes with 105% accuracy. You will be amazed by all their choices, a cuisine that combines Korean and New American fine dining

    5 star review  My family and I stopped in for an early dinner at around 6, and we absolutely enjoyed it! We practically ordered the whole menu (we didn’t get two appetizers and two entrees). Each order was fantastic, surprisingly our favorite item was the cucumber salad side, which of course I didn’t get a photo off. I definitely recommend the donabes, both were delicious!! Also the sea urchin appetizer was amazing!

    5 star review  The waitress, Heidi, was amazing! She took ownership of our need. She made amazing recommendations based on our preferences. She made us feel at home. The chefs care about the food they present. The entire experience was amazing! We can not wait to go back!

    5 star review  Phenomenal food! Couples get the best value ordering the Hortus Tasting menu ($65 per person), which includes a small version of the seafood royal platter. The crunch octopus & the king crab noodles are local favorites. They've earned their Michelin.

  • 4 star review  Food was absolutely outstanding. Really loved the vibe and interior. Spent $300 on this place for my birthday with a group of friends, but didn't get a cake. Saw someone else's table with a cake and was a little sad. Seafood and all the meat dishes were great. Servers were good. The royal platter was delicious. I enjoyed the crispy octopus. The truffle donabe was heavenly.

    5 star review  I had such an incredible meal here. All the flavors were so rich and fresh. The octopus and fluke were my favorite hands down. The decor is beautiful and great for a group but also intimate enough for a date. Drinks were strong and the service was very smooth. Such a gem , I will be back.

    5 star review  Everything was delicious! The soup, entree, dessert and drink I ordered were all unique and so tasty. Only issue was that music was a little too loud and speakers weren’t syncing during dining experience but otherwise a lovely meal.

  • 4 star review  Food was very flavorful. Loved the snow crab noodles and the carrot soup was yum too. I think I was just too full from a week of non-stop eating to truly appreciate the flavors of the food.

    5 star review  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.

    5 star review  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!

    5 star review  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.
