We were a big party the night we went, and they accommodated us with grace and a lot of patience! The food was wonderful, and the servers were very knowledgeable about Korean food. Highly recommended!

They're no longer doing sushi here (it's devasting, it was really good sushi). However the remainder of the menu is still very tasty. Nice atmosphere, yummy drinks... *sigh no sushi

I recently visited Sung Korea when visiting to take in some Reds ball games. I found the atmosphere very comforting with black tables and chairs in a bistro mode. I was quickly shown to my table and was immediately served ice water while perusing the menu. The selections were varied with a good; but not overwhelming number of Korean dishes.... More

It is a nice restaurant. Without pretensions, with good food, and good atmosphere. The wine list is also good. I was surprised that they brought the glass full, instead of bringing the empty glass and fill it in front of me. I had to ask for the bottle to learn about the type of grapes, year of the wine, etc... More

As I was travelling alone the evening I stopped here I opted to sit at the bar and order dinner there. I guess that was my BIG MISTAKE! The bartender was slow, did not seem to want to serve me and it took forever for him to get my drink and bring me a menu. Once I ordered food, the... More

The food was delicious. I had the dolsot bibimbop (spelling?)... it's the one that is served sizzling hot in a stone bowl with an egg on top. This is my 2nd time eating Korean food and I enjoyed it. The sides were pretty good too. Music was good and at a decent level. But every other aspect of the dining... More

My husband and I happened to be in the area and quite hungry at 4:30 when Sung Korea was just opening. Since we were attending a convention we were trying to fit a quick meal in between a few sessions we didn't want to miss, we sat at the bar and opted for some appetizers off of the happy hour...

My fiance and I went to Sung Korean Bistro to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. We had reservations for 7pm on Friday, and though the restaurant was busy, the reservatiobs weren't required as there were soe tables available. Immediately, the atmosphere inside the restaurant was strikingly attractive and tasteful in a contemporary way. We started off with drinks: I had one... More

We choose this restaurant for our Valentine's Day dinner. We had a great time enjoying authentic Korean cuisine which was different than anything we've experienced. This was exactly what we were looking for and the scene was delightful. My only complaint is that it was a little cold/drafty. I left my planner and they called me about it and held... More

We ate there Saturday evening with another couple before the theater. This was our second visit, and we were not impressed the first time, about two years ago, when we felt that our dolsimbab was burnt and served without care. This visit was very enjoyable. The service was attentive and the place pleasantly busy and nicely decorated. While the others... More
