I took my girl friend here a year ago and we were quite surprised by the food quality and attention to detail—we just were not expecting it. The owner is a very entertaining and warm person. Thanks

Tried the BBQ Pork buns, short ribs and coconut panna cotta from their prix fixe menu. Everything was extremely tasty and just the right serving size. I'm anxious to go back and try more. Their drinks were great also! The blood orange rum drink and strawberry fennel were spot on.

Silly name for amazing food. Get the smoked ribs. The sauce could have been a bit spicier, in my opinion, but it’s hard to complain when the meat is so tender and juicy it just falls right off of the bone. And then get the Bulgogi Burger, which apparently translates to “fire meat” - only slightly spicy. The meat was prepared with soy, sugar, scallion, garlic and sesame oil before being topped by cooled cucumber kimchee, kewpee and a japanese mayo. The cooled cucumber kimchee was a perfect balance to the spicy burger. Just right.

One of the best Asian fusion restaurants I have tried in a while. It's tough to do Asian fusion without seeming gimmicky but did well here. The room is loud but I like the decor and the relative spaciousness. There are some good value items here like the Bulgogi Burger. Other things were tasty but overpriced like the tuna tartare bibimbap. The lobster rendang was delicious. Service is okay but can seem a little spacey at times.

Pretty good asian fusion. Note that prices are more expensive than the $28 currently listed in zagats. Perhaps they've changed the menu. I thought portions were on the small side. It's typically a $35 for a 3-course price fixe, so about $45 after tax and tip (excluding any drinks). Service is OK but can be slow at times.

The food was pretty good. Fries (that came with burger), pork buns, pickles (came with buns and burger), and mousse were quite tasty, but portions were small. Burger (friend got this one) and short ribs were good, but nothing especially interesting. I felt the prices were too high for what we got. (ex: buns were 2 for $12; burger $21)

Been wanting to try Angelo's restaurant, finally had the time to, with my hubby. I got the bibimbap burger and hubby ordered the lobster rendang. Overall, food is good, nice Asian flavor fusion. We enjoyed the togarashi fries that came with the burger. Burger meat is tasty. The lobster meat is tender and succulent. We love the rendang sauce, only wish it came with bread side to dip into that sauce. The corn succotash is flavorful and refreshing, great partner with the rendang. I had asian sangria and it's light, tasty and refreshing. Staff is attentive, wait time for food is not bad. The plating/presentation is not something to be desired though, food would have stood out better on white plates. The visit would have been complete if I got a glimpse of Angelo :)

My hubby and I came here for brunch deal we got on Daily Candy and it was totally worth it! We each got an appetizer, entree and a drink. The restaurant was kind of empty for brunch crowd but I guess this place is more popular for dinner and business lunch crowd. At any rate, we were seated immediately and the waitress told us we can order anything on the menu without restrictions. My husband got their ramen as entree and I got a mushroom and green salad. We thought the ramen would come in a small bowl but how we got it wrong! The sausage ramen was surprisingly delicious with rich broth and the sausage made the carb-loaded soup extra meaty. My salad has a nice soy sauce dressing and is light and refreshing. For entree, my hubby got a steak and eggs and I went for the Korean fried chicken and taro waffles. The steak was juicy and delicious and it is a healthy size. I think he overdid it on the two dishes! I on the other hand, really enjoyed my Korean fried chicken. It has a nice soy glazed skin and it is not as good as Bon Chon but it has its own unique crisp. The taro waffle is a true winner. The waffle is stuffed with chewy taro dough. We love the food here and would like to return to try the bulgilgi burger.
