We had a great experience! The staff was very on top of our orders and table. Great experience!
Love this place came for Mother's day dinner. Everything was great (except the rice) usually don't have a problem. Service was slow at first then things got better. There is and option for pretty much everyone but if your a meat lover they have great choices of meat and the quality is great.
Prime kalbi and skirt steak is the way to go
Waitress was great, staff was great
There were two of us who went for the all you can eat. We had a total of 90 mins to dine. The waitresses for our table were very friendly and provided our table with much attention. We were never waiting on them as they were constantly checking in to place our next round of food or drink orders. We left very full and satisfied.
The food was amazing, pricey but I would say it’s worth it if it’s on special occasions. Service was wonderful!
Excellent service. Food was delicious! Covid protocols were great.
Great food and service was very friendly and efficient. Been to this location a few times and would certainly return.
A mouse on the floor behind our table
Made us nostalgic for the yakiniku places we ate at while living in Japan. Music is a little loud, but the food and service are great.
The food was good, though not entirely as described on the menu. Good drinks. Fairly slow but very polite service. On the pricey side for what we got (which was all prepared food, no grilling at the table). Probably wouldn't return, but am okay with the experience.
Literally had the best marinated beef I’ve EVER had in my life. 11/10, going there again tomorrow because we couldn’t get enough of it today!!
Felt very rushed to order food, was a 9:30 reservation and was not seated until 9:50 due to full tables, when finally greeted we were told that kitchen would close at 10:20, while us guests wanted to do all you can eat. If the kitchen closes at a certain time and you cannot accomodate seating table late then there should not even be an option to see people that late.
We come here all the time with our kids and it’s always great. The food is awesome and so is the atmosphere. This most recent visit we had a bigger table than normal with a window & view which was amazing! Highly recommend this place to anyone!
Service is good but the meat size was smaller than before. Also, it is a little noisy when servers celebrate some customers’ birthday. I do not like that in the public area to make other people stop their dining and waiting them to finish.
Gyu Kaku is a great spot for solid Japanese BBQ. The food is usually always excellent. The price is hairly higher now post covid and the service is hit or miss.
Great experience. Had to wait a bit but totally worth it. Our waitress spot on with the service. I was in shock at first to see all the food coming plate after plate. All part of the style. Loved it.
Highly recommend this place. Great to see all you can eat option. We decided to go because of this option
Gyu-Kaku is a go-to of ours and a favorite. However, they repeatedly (2x) gave us frozen meat. Rock hard. We have never had that happen before and once we complained, they brought us a new plate that also had frozen meat. We were disappointed. Also, their bibimbap didn’t come in a hot pot which they didn’t let us know beforehand. Overall, just a pretty poor experience for a place we usually love.
Absolutely abhorrent experience. Was here for a birthday - had to leave due to horrible service. Every time I come, we’re made to wait at least 20 minutes - this did not change last evening. I think your current manager there is absolutely trash. Please do better and be better - we’d love to see ourselves back there again.
Great food and service. Went for my boyfriends birthday and we enjoyed ourselves.
Food is delish! They dont offer happy hour on Fridays anymore which is sad! But regardless it’s a really fun time especially with friends
At first we were slow to get seated and were misled by the happy hour promotion time online. However, once we were seated, a server came and told us that they would honor the happy hour promo we came in for because online it was wrong. *during covid, happy hour prices are from 11AM-4PM. Another issue was that we booked for outdoor seating but they told us that the patio was still closed. This feature needs to be edited on OpenTable. Otherwise, food, safety, and ambiance were great.
Wasn't able to have an available seat by the time of arrival. Wait bit longer while I made reservation. Also, social distancing is needed in waiting areas.
perfect dining experience! always love the food here.
Friendly staff. Great food and experience. Highly recommended
Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, and really good food! Just a bit expensive.
The service was really good. Specially the waitress who served our table. Very nice lady even though they were very busy. Food was good. Hanger steak is a must!
Waited for another half an hour for seating
We had a wonderful time at Gyu-Kaku. We were fortunate to have a table that felt far away from all others, so it felt a lot safer Covid-wise. The food was delicious and we had a lot of fun cooking together on our date. Definitely would go again.
We enjoyed the more private tables
Our reservation was given to another waiting group which resulted in us being seated 40 minutes after our original reservation time.
All-you-can-eat menu is an amazing value. Tremendous service and food as always.
Made us wait for 30 minutes past our reservation time but other than that it’s good
We had 515pm reservations... but weren’t seated until 6pm ... we sat down, waited another 10 minutes before anyone came to take our order. The manager took our order for premium menu of 8 items. We waited another 15 minutes before 2 steak items came out. We finished those off, still waiting for white rice and vegetables and the other steak items. The manager comes by to ask how everything is...we let her know we are missing half the order she says “let me check on this!” 2 more steak things come out.. still no rice, no veggies etc we waited we wait ... we get up and ask someone at the front they reply the same thing “we’ll check on that” we re-order some meat items .. still no veggies ... finally 1 hour into meal we get the 2 bowls of veggies ... it was a horrible experience, service was horrible. They should have WRITTEN the order down instead of trying to remember it all. Not to mention, they weren’t that busy. Mid way through our meal, half the tables were empty but yet they couldn’t get our order right, or our correctly or on time. We barely had any thing to eat in the 90 min time frame they allotted. The food is great, but the service needs major work!!
This place never disappoints!! My boyfriend and I have gone twice and always love the food and especially the drinks are to die for!
We really enjoy our first time here. Service and food was great!
I just loved it xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Poor service from the host .
