    I would recommend Gosu on the service alone. Our waiter was helpful, attentive and friendly without ever crossing that threshold into noticeable over-serving. The food came quickly the whole night. The fact was, the entree wasn't the best I've had. We had a sushi platter, and the nigiri was a little strange tasting with an unprecedented amount of wasabi between the fish and the rice. The appetizers, however (my boyfriend got a vegetable lettuce wrap while I ordered gyoza) were delicious. It might not wow any real sushi snobs, but it was an enjoyable meal for a reasonable price.

    I was with a group of 12 people. The food was as spectacular as the service! Enough said.

    It has a huge menu, almost to the point of being overwhelming. We had mostly sushi, but the cooked items were definitely better. The chicken lettuce wraps were great. Our waiter was wonderful and the place is cute.

    I showed up 15 minutes late to my reservation and they did not hesitate to show me to my seat as if I arrived early. The servers are great and giving you the attention you deserve.

    After so-so appetizers my short rib was short of anything appetizing! I had to ask for a knife and a fork to cut the hockey puck....I mean short rib. I could barely finish the rubbery piece in my mouth. The texture was terrible but the taste was as well! After waiting 15 minutes to flag down the waiter to tell him about my meal I politely didn't want to eat. I just wanted it off of my bill. He came back telling me "it wasn't rubbery" and that's how "it's supposed to be" I was offended by his remarks and when he came back for the payment of bill (which I tipped him too generously) I told him besides the texture it didn't taste good! He then gave us another rude comment and told us to come back again.....no thanks!

    Gosu has a big menu and the food is very tasty. The wait staff is knowledgeable about gluten allergies and they work with you to mae something delicious. The korean entrees are very good and the sushi is creative and tasty.

    Food was pretty good--just ordered way too much. Had the Godzilla, Rambo, Spicy Lobster Roll, & Crunch Spicy Tuna. Food was great although the rolls are a little on the pricey side (most are ~$15). They turned the Hawks game on at our request and were very attentive when we needed something. When the waiter noticed we weren't going to finish everything he came by and gave his recommendation for which rolls kept the best which was very helpful since we did take some home!
