I've been to this location a few times, but this was my friend's first time there. We had a reservation for 2:30pm, but arrived 20 minutes early, and were still seated immediately! The hostess was polite, and the server was quick to take our orders. We received our appetizer, soup, and salad in under 10 minutes. Our meat also came out relatively quickly afterwards! The server apologized for bringing everything out so fast (we'd hardly finished anything after he came out with the meat), but it was a pleasant surprise to have our food in such a short time, especially because Gyu-Kaku is usually busy in the afternoon. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. More

Kiki’s is a longtime favorite. When my wife and I were discussing where to go to celebrate my 65th birthday, which fell on a Monday when many restaurants are closed, we agreed that Kiki’s was the place to go. The restaurant wasn’t terribly crowded, but Kiki seated us at a table that afforded us a modicum of privacy. The food was excellent, as it always is. The service was outstanding, which is what we’ve come to expect. When we declined to order a dessert, the waiter, who noted that we celebrating my birthday, offered us a glass of port instead. It was a perfect conclusion to a most enjoyable evening. More

I had a bourbon mule which was delish and one of the best I have ever had. The food was amazing...the filet was cut with a butter knife and the salmon was cooked perfectly and the size of the piece was huge! Then complementary dessert to top it off. Thanks Gary and the entire staff for making our night very memorable. More

The duck service was great, and most of the menu items have multiple preparations to accommodate taste preference or allergies. A good amount of Vegan and vegetarian options. The location on Michigan Ave and 4th floor location is great, it’s in the middle of shopping but tucked away enough to feel like a relaxed environment. More
