Met all the expectations and above, overall place decoration and atmosphere were relaxing, with beautiful views of the city. The stuff is very very well trained and it is a real pleasure to dine in such a place. Possible where they could get better is in English but this is the only thing, all the rest is just as it...

fantastic food, fantastic view, and fantastic service. Absolutely loved it. I know that some say "gastronomie moleculaire" is passe nowadays but still refreshing to meet gagnier's dishes in Seoul. The view of the north mountain on a clear day is gorgeous.

I had a special lunch course which started from amuse bouche to dessert with a wine pairing I chosen. Each dish was a beautiful and nice, it was hard to explain. I could feel a chef's philosophy.

After 5 years of exploring Seoul’s fine dining scene we finally convinced ourselves to try Pierre Gagnaire’s local branch. Although the dining room and service were both top notch, the food itself was a big disappointment and certainly did not justify the price charged. Just like the La Seine buffet downstairs, servings will impress the bulk of Asian customers it... More

This was a fantastic experience. We had a 5 course dinner with wine pairing. Just amazing dishes. View from the 35th floor at night is exquisite. A shame that only 2 tables attended.

Generally a good spot, good views and good wine. But they billed my Visa in US dollars and the exchange rate they used was 5% worse than the going rate. That's super shady. I would avoid any place that thinks they can take advantage of consumers like that.

Surprisingly there are no Michelin star restaurants in Seoul. We were so fortunate to visit Pierre Gagnaire in The Lotte Hotel, Seoul for lunch. The atmosphere and surrounding of the restaurant are exceptional. We were given a window seat and chose the course menu. It is one of the best meals I have ever experienced. The price is relative.
