  • "This was the 3rd time in 3 months to come here with a large group, and had another fun great reunion dinner! Meat was great as usual, and also the salad is excellent. S more's at the end is a cherry on the top!"

  • "We were there for lunch with another large group, and all had plenty of food and had a lot of fun grilling, eating and chatting!"

  • ".... But Went back a second time & the service was equally as bad as the first. Wait staff takes forever to bring you essentials. First visit, bottled water- 20 minutes! Second visit, rice bowls- we had to ask several times while our rice was getting cold. Other minor service details must be improved upon."

  • "I had been to the one in New York with some Japanese colleagues and this restaurant did not disappoint. The group had a great time, tried all different types of meats and it was definitely an experience cooking on our own personal grill. Everyone loved it and the food was great!! The only thing this place really needs improvement on is their selection of spirits! Kinda weak."

  • "I love the chain (yes, chain) Gyu-kaku. Normally, when dining at this restaurant you get the full service top to bottom, no questions asked! Umfortunately, the Miami location was the worst that we have encountered. The wait staff never explained to our friends who were first timers, what was what , etc. The waiter was slow and had no clue. It is unfortunate because the restaurant itself offers very good food at reasonable prices. Sad, really..."

  • "I have gone to the one in Chicago, and enjoyed it! So I thought to bring my sister for her first time. This location was 10x better than Chicago. Amazing service, on top of everything. They changed the grill very frequently which made it so impressive. In Chicago, I had to ask the waiters to change it. Quick service, amazing food.. just what we were looking for! Highly recommend this location. Thanks for a enjoyable experience. Just set the standards, and when going to other cities, I will be comparing it to this experience. Never had such great service! Very friendly staff members!"

  • "I went to the New York restaurant 5 years ago and I was amazed by this place. The food is awesome the atmosphere is great. I was super excited when I heard it was coming to Miami and it didn't disappoint at all. It was wonderful, delicious and the ambiance and waiter were very nice. I cant wait to go again. I recommend the kobe beef, noodles (yum) and green tea dessert (to die for)!!!"

  • "We were a party of 8, celebrating a birthday. Gyu-kaku is an evening of fun, but expensive! Great variety of specialty drinks, served large but weak on alcohol. Bar had no Crown Royal and hot sake had to be sent back to be heated. The menu is huge and the choices for individual or combo orders is confusing. Once ordered, our individual table grills were started and table was slammed with food. We asked servers to slow down so we could savor the evening! The fun begins as you start grillin'. Lots of beef, poultry and seafood choices. Each plate ($8-15) has a few slices of raw protein or veggies to grill. The skimpy Kobe was $17. B-day cake was comped and s'mores were fun. You won't be "stuffed" but it's a fun evening. ($50 or more pp)"

  • "We were a large group, but they accommodated us in the back room very nicely. All of our teenage kids and parents had a great food, and a lot of fun BBQing meat, veggies and s'mores! We all said, we hava to come back here again soon!"

  • "Who doesn't like to cook their own food? The prices are cheap enough to sample many meat dishes. The best part...the SMORES dessert! Gotta try it. "

  • "music was too loud. it was hard to have a normal conversation without having to yell. you can even hear the staff (if you are seated close to the kitchen) yelling at each other. we ordered a fixed-course menu, the meat came in installments. poor service. the food was very good, but the service definitely needs improvement.

  • "I've been at Gyu-kaku in Japan and the restaurant and food is pretty similar if not identical with few exceptions. It is on the pricy side if you want to get very satisfied but worth the quality and service."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Good for the family to cook their own food. Succulent pieces of meat very savory. Although most were a little salty and you really have to like their marinades. Fun to do in a group but it does take a while prepare for a least 1.5 -2 hours being there."

  • "The seats were uncomfortable. Not have room for the feet. The tables are too attached to people. The food was normal. Normal service."

  • "5 of us were very excited to try Gyu Kaku especially my BFF since she has been to one in another location. The atmosphere was modern and none of us walked out hungry or with our clothes smelling like BBQ (this is not true with many Asian Korean BBQ places). We had a fun experience cooking in the grill, especially with our s'mores desserts. Overall I would recommend this place. The only thing I wasn't too impressed with was the Kobe beef. I was expecting better quality for the price. "

  • "This restaurant is a must do in Miami! Twice! It's great entertainment cooking your own food in the BBQ pit, but I was also unexpectedly thrilled at how the food, start to finish, was exceptional quality. The Korean dumplings were the best I've even had, amazing fresh-off-the-farm tasting salad, steak that melts in the mouth, etc. The restaurant is quite new, thus impeccably decorated in contemporary Asian high style and spotlessly clean. The prices are very reasonable, but if you're starving you can still run up a bill. 2 beers and stuffing ourselves ran about $40. Service was competent: friendly and reasonably knowledgeable, but as is true with most restaurants these days, it's a weird team effort with multiple servers. Rush down!"

  • "Only the ambience is good. The food was not that fresh; my husband and I both had stomachaches after eating there. The service was the most disappointed part, the server seemed to be overwhelmed and made several mistakes on our order. Honestly, I will not come back to Gyu Kaku ever again."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Great taste of BBQ beef, and the seafood & veggies are not as great as beef, but still keep a high-quality. The surrounding is quiet and comfortable in general, except some customers made some noises. The service is good enough to fit the level and reputation of the restaurant, sincere and enthusiasm."

  • "It was our first time dining in this restaurant. We had expected to be good because of all the positive reviews. When we personally experienced the service and food it was quite disappointing. All of us are foodie and enjoy dining out but as we received our appetizers it all went bad. The food was disappointing. The server was not attentive and some of the food we ordered was missing. Overall experience was disappointing."

  • "The food there was great I went with my girlfriend and we both loved it. I suggest to order meats from the alacarte menu that way you can order exactly what you would like."

  • "We were a party of 6 and really enjoyed our experience. We ordered the meal for 4 and another for 2 to get a variety of meats and appetizers and it was worth it. We were all full! The cheese dumplings and miso chilli chicken wings are a must. I wish we had more s'mores! Music was a little loud but overall, fun, and food was easy and quick to cook. Plus, we didn't smell like food when we left which happens at other "fondue" places. I definitely recommend giving it a try!"

  • "Food is not fit for a foodie but there is a time when u would visit . Theme restaurant on same level of a Benihana .. Great for birthdays but would not go there for a culinary experience . It is what it is . Fun to cook food but gets old after the first strip of steak . Good service and well executed"

  • "I'll start by saying the food was good. Nothing outstanding, but we enjoyed everything. We had the steamed dumplings, miso chicken wings (probably the best item of the night), and a variety of meats to grill after the appetizers. Our night was soured by the terrible service though. We were at our table for nearly 30 minutes before we were even acknowledged. I did not receive my water until after we were done with our appetizers and after I had asked for it 4 times. It was a Saturday night, but it was not terribly busy, so I just don't know what the hold up was with everything. For the two of us, we were there for over 2 hours. Considering 3 tables that came in an hour after us finished when we did, that felt like a very long time."

  • "I have been to the branch of the restaurant in Chicago..and hence the dissapointment. The taste, the food, the menu are not up to the standards I expected. They do not have good portions. Also, many items on the menu are missing...like mochi ice cream."
