    We really enjoyed our meal. Second visit for a pre-theater dinner, and we'll be back. We had a nice appetizer of ddukbokkie (small rice cakes with sauce and an assortment of sides), which was plenty for two people. For the mains, we had a jaeyuk dolsot (a spicy pork bibimbap in a ripping hot stone bowl), and a soondubu jjigae (spicy seafood & tofu stew). Both were really yummy. The staff was friendly and eager to please. They got us our meal in plenty of time for us to enjoy and be in time for curtain. Recommended.

    We had an excellent pre-theater dinner here. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The food was excellent - I had a Jaeyuk Dolsot (crunchy rice with spicy pork, served in a ripping hot stone bowl), and my wife and nephew each had the Dolsot Bibimbap (also served in the hot stone bowl). They also served a complementary assortment of small appetizers. Everything tasted great, and the mains were very well prepared. Servings were generous enough that we felt well fed. It was good value considering the center-city location, and ideally situated for the theater district. We'll be coming back here again.

    Bella was fantastic! The food was outstanding. We did it pre-show and it is so close to parking and walking distance to Broad Street where the Academy of Music, Kimmel Center, etc. I told Bella "the food is so good, I want to Scream! I had the Dolsot Bibimbap with beef! It comes in a heated bowl! I took a video of it sizzling! I love the sides you get as an appetizer! I told Bella "the food is so good, I want to Scream! It was a wonderful experience!

    The restaurant was empty when we arrived, but our food took about 45 minutes to come out. I was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt until I noticed everyone else was getting their food within 15-20 minutes of walking into the restaurant. When we finally did receive our food it was under seasoned and just not tasty at all. I wouldn’t recommend coming here if you want good food or service.

    We enjoyed our first visit to Seorabol. For appetizers we had seafood pancake and general cho chicken. The quantities were sizable. We agreed that we probably could have been satisfied just with them alone, especially because the wait staff brought out gratis several small dishes of various things from the kitchen: small squares of fried tofu, radishes in delicious sauce, broccoli with sesame seeds, kimchi, and tiny sliced hotdogs in sauce. For main courses we had the rice cake soup with noodles, chicken gui, and dolsot bibimbap. All were delicious and were large enough servings for dinner the next day. The physical space is nothing fancy, but the service and food were great.
