    5 star review  Amazing food, went there for lunch on Mothers Day, so they only had the dinner menu. Food and drinks are absolutely amazing, love all the appetizers. The Truffle dish is my favorite, taste like heaven from the first bite. Would definitely go back to try out lunch menu.

    5 star review  One of the best Asian fusion restaurants I've been to in a long time. Definitely get the Truffle Donabe and Crispy Octopus. The portion sizes are just right. Prices are very reasonable for the quality. Service was great and we didn't have to wait long for food even though we were a large group. I'd definitely come back to try more dishes!

    4 star review  Nice ambiance and good service. Delicious food (although limited options for vegans/vegetarians). Desert wasn’t as delectable and matcha-forward as I was expecting it to be, but it was an enjoyable experience overall.

  • 5 star review  I took my dad here for his birthday. The food was great. The octopus smelled like French fries as it was covered in a light batter and it tasted so good. I also had the short rib. My girlfriend ordered the steak. I thought that was better so I’d say you go in that direction. The pasta as an appetizer was also great. Oh! Before I forget…the sweet potato mash that came with the short rib was unlike anything I’ve tried. Crazy good texture. Sooo given all of the above I now send you on the journey to select you dinning options. God speed.

    5 star review  Impeccable food and service! The king crab noodle and truffle donabe with hanger steak are both amazing. We've been here 3 times and will definitely come back in the future.

    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  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.
