  • "Portions are small. But a unique dining experience. Not going to make it a regular thing."

  • "The quality of the food was impressive but the service was what sold me. We never had more then 3 minutes pass without someone checking in on us. All staff were pleasant and knowledgeable."

  • "My wife and I just got finished with Magic Mountain and wanted a late night snack. We found Gyu-Kaku on a internet search and cruised on over. The wait staff was friendly and the food was excellent. We cant wait to come back in October for the Magic Mountain Fright Fest and take the entire family to Gyu-Kaku. We will probably take over the entire outside eating area. dnut"

  • "This restaurant didn't meet my expectations. Authentic Korean BBQ to includes banchan,which it did not.I doubt if some-mores are served in Korea.The beef was tough and sinewy,like chewing on rubber bands.The sauces,served in half-filled grungy bottles on the table looked unappetizing, and lackluster in flavor.Music was blaring much like being in a club, minus the bar and dancing.The noise was deafening to the point where we could barely converse as the servers shouted out continuously. Interaction at our table was non existent so what is the point of even going to this type of restaurant? One of the worst restaurants I've been to and felt badly for the person who paid for this. Will not return or recommend."

  • "The servings were too small for the price. 3 pieces of meat isn't appropriate or practical. Grill was nice. Not enough selections for the sides. Kimchi tasted bad."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "Food and service are excellent. Our only disappointment came by way of the Kobe-style Kalbi short ribs, which were priced at $19.95 for a 6 ounce serving. Really not worth the money. The more reasonably priced Harami Skirt Steak is absolutely delicious and a much better buy than the Kobe short ribs. The waiters and attendants could not have been nicer. Highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Gyu-Kaku is not your run-of-the-mill Japanese grill restaurant. Everything is fresh and exclusively prepared at top-notch quality. With more than 10 kinds of meat to order from, vegetable sides, differentiated appetizers, and even classic meals like rice or ramen bowls, a great time to go is anytime!"

  • "We've dined here many times and have had great food and great service everytime. The quality of the food is great and is delivered to the table quickly. The frosty cold beer is fantastic along with the Nagori Unfiltered Sake. This is our favorite Santa Clarita restaurant. I'm a native to this area and I'm happy to have this wonderful new restaurant.

  • "First time was a great experience . Great service with great food. Our food was brought out quickly and out waitress was very pleasant. She was patient with our questions and gave us good recommendations . The second time we went the service was pretty bad. It took a very long time to get our order out. While the people next to us arrived 15 mins after us and they were served right away. Both tables had the same waiter. He kept saying that the kitchen was "backed up " and continued to bring dish after dish to the table that was seated after us. They even started BBQ before us !! It was unfair treatment. We didn't order anything out of the ordinary."

  • "I took my kids for a Valentine's day date and they loved it! My 7 year old asked if he could come back on his birthday which is not for another 7 months! Meat was tasty and melted in my mouth. Happy hour prices are great! I will definitely be back in the near future. I will also come back for mommy night out happy hour. Best part is I live close by so I can walk home after some yummy cocktails."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The happy hour prices are amazing and they run happy hour all day on Mondays! Basil chicken was so good considering mostly all the sauces are soy sauce and spicy. We tried all different kinds of meats and all were amazing. You definitely have to try the cheese corn and smores!"

  • "We decided to give Gyu-kaku a try before a movie. You order a la carte or from a set menu and you cook your food over hot coals. We decided the a la carte route because we didn't care for much of the items on the set menu. The service was good. We will be back with friends next time."

  • "The food was great! Our server was great at guiding us. Every course got better and better. Can't wait to bring more people with us."

  • "This place has good food but not so good value. What I mean is, it is less expensive and just as good to eat at Gogi House. Gogi House has basically the same food that is all you can eat for $21.95. For two adults and two small kids under 10, we spent $140 on just good and no drinks. We were still hungry when we left! Thank goodness there was McDonald's on the way home."
