Amazing experience! We did the 7-course tasting menu, and I would highly recommend it. Every course was beautifully presented, perfectly cooked, and so delicious! Highlights were the seared scallops, mandu with kimchi and pork, and the omija dessert. The service was wonderful and the space is really beautiful. One of the best fine dining restaurants in Chicago.
Birthday dinner, tasting menu w/ wine pairing....outstanding. Highlights: pork dumpling, Salmon Tatar, American wagyu, seared scallop. Loved the vibe of the small intimate space. Music was a little loud. Tough to hear description of food/wine with music and servers wearing masks due to COVID restrictions. I'm nitpicking....excellent dinner. Well done, highly recommended.
Outstanding, top notch service alongside fantatic food with diverse textures and exotic flavors.
Amazing experience. Amazing value
For the most part, we enjoyed the dining experience, but the beef course was disappointing. The Wagyu beef was lacking flavor and was very very tough.
The care and precision that this restaurant takes is evident. You feel welcomed as if you were in their home. The food is 5 star delicious. The cocktails and wine were excellent. So happy I got the chance to dine here. I've been really into Korean food, but had not experience Modern Korean, but now the bar has been set!
Beautiful food Wine pairing was excellent - really changed both the food and wine for the best when having them at the same time!
Don’t go starving though. The portions, which are meant to be small for each dish, could be just a tad bigger to not leave a little hungry.
Amazing, worth it, but as many tasting menus go, you could still be hungry after.
The best food experience, from seating to the last bite, that I've ever had. Each course of the tasting menu was superb with a clear attention to detail, cohesion, and beauty among all the courses. In addition to a stellar meal, Jeong took great care to make my partner's birthday special which exceeded our expectations.
The only thing we didn't try was the wine pairing, which I now regret seeing how they perfected everything else.
Highly suggest Jeong as a destination for an otherworldly taste and fine dining experience.
Exceptional delicious food, great presentation
Staff is super friendly and well trained
Quiet environment, very cozy atmosphere
Amazing place! Definitely will come back
Beautiful, simple, attentive
Absolutely delicious food and wonderful wait staff. Worth the price!
The food and drinks were all amazing. The ambiance was also great, and the distancing was appreciated. Everything was awesome!
A hidden gem! Ambiance, staff, and food were amazing! Came here for a friend's birthday and the restaurant made sure to make it a memorable experience.
An overall wonderful experience. Delicious meal, attentive service, and great cocktails. We did not try the wine pairing, but our drinks complemented the meal as well. If you've never experienced a tasting menu befofe, this is a great start. We felt satisfied and it was a manageable number of courses. For what it is worth the, the decor was lovely too.
Certainly one if the top five restaurants in Chicago.
Top notch service, inventive food, great wine pairings
The tasting menu was nice. It would be better if they have a la carte menu.
Fabulous as usual. Can’t wait to return!
Very intimate dining environment. Most dishes were exceptional and the rest were great but forgettable compared to the others. Cocktails were small.
400 dollars for tasting menu and 2 cocktails each.
Would eat there again
One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Very fun presentation, but I usually hate when presentation gets in the way of texture/flavor, but everything here was immensely flavorful. Drinks reasonably priced. Would absolutely recommend to a friend. Only minuscule area for improvement was I thought the music was actually a little too quiet, leading to feeling like conversations weren’t really quite private across tables, but this is really about as picky as you can get.
It was a lovely evening at Jeong. The interior and ambiance was so nice, and the presentation was lovely as well. The food was good but nothing outstanding in my mind. Nice to enjoy and try with a friend but more of a date night or one time spot. I did the wine pairing as well but don’t justify nearly $60 for that by any means.
This meal was as delightful and as memorable as any dining experience I’ve ever had. The staff were personable, extremely thoughtful, and made an already special occasion unforgettable. The food was creative, inspiring, and just really really delicious. The cocktails were inventive and perfectly balanced and executed. And the ambiance was second to none. I have nothing but praise for chef Dave and the rest of the wonderful team and Jeong and I hope I’m able to go again soon, as you should too.
Beautiful unique and delicious food, super good pacing, good value on the tasting menu. Can't wait to go back again!
My wife and I love this restaurant. Whether you love Korean food or have no idea what is about, it does not matter. Great food is great food. Beautiful room and the service is attentive but not hovering. I encourage everyone to try it.
Lovely meal- enjoyed all courses of the tasting menu- along with delicious cocktails. Very intimate setting with only 7 tables total at the time of our visit (due to Covid I am sure). Would absolutely recommend!
The service, quality of food, and entire experience was so wonderful. Each course impressed us, and it may have been the best meal we’ve ever had. They switch up the menu each season, so I look forward to coming back and checking out what’s new!
Great memorable food. So beautiful and everything tasted great.
This may have been the best fine-dining experience I have had in Chicago, and I’ve lived here for more than 30 years.
One of if not the best meal I’ve ever had. The staff was fabulous and so was the atmosphere. Five stars
Service was impeccable and the presentation was spot on.
Everything at Jeong from food to service to atmosphere is as close to perfect as possible. Jeong serves the most elegant comfort food that I have ever experienced.
Food and service were both outstanding. We have eaten there before and each time is a great dining experience.
Every dish on the tasting menu was superb! I will definitely come back when I’m in Chicago. The value you get for the quality of dishes is 1,000 percent worth it!
The food was amazing -- every dish was great -- we didn't want the courses to stop!
This is the best restaurant in Chicago. It is like eating an art experience.
Absolutely incredible !
Very refined Korean food combined with French techniques. I particularly enjoyed the seafood courses, though some of the dishes were a bit excessively rich. Inventive use of traditional Korean ingredients. The cocktails were interesting but relatively mediocre. Service was impeccable and the waitress answered all of our questions about the food. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated.
Can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed the experience! It’s easy to get distracted with how creative and tasty the food is but the staff was just as remarkable—they made celebrating a birthday there so very memorable.
The food was excellent, as was the service.—as both should be, at these prices. I have one criticism: the serving of wine per glass can only be described as skimpy. Really, there's no excuse for that.
The food surprised me somewhat by being less Korean-influenced than I would have expected. This is not a criticism, just an observation. The most common flavorings in traditional Korean cooking include soy sauce and sesame oil; neither seemed to be present in the tasting menu, and barely a hint of garlic, another staple of Korean cooking.
Then again: there is an ancient tradition in Korean cooking of a "royal cuisine"—maybe these dishes were more akin to this than to traditional cooking!
