We decided to try Gorikee for the first time last Friday night, since I'd read such good things about it on this board.

I saw on the online menu that they have a special between 5:00 and 6:00 (all dinners include salad and dessert), so we headed over at about 5:30, expecting a crowd.

When we walked in, there was NO ONE seated. There was a large party (obviously one family, all dressed up as though celebrating a special occasion) and they were just standing like we were, waiting for someone to seat us.

It was bizarre. We waited for a couple minutes (which seemed like forever), and never saw any staff, despite the fact that there were at least 10 people waiting in their tiny lobby area. We finally gave up and left; it was just too weird.

Maybe we missed a great dining opportunity, but I am always kind of leery if there is no one eating when I walk into a restaurant.

Am I the only one that has had this experience here?
