Great place to ea. Went there for a special occasion and servers were friendly, even when switching off for shifts they informed us and the take-over was just as fast and friendly. Manager came at the end to thank us. Overall food, atmosphere, and service was outstanding.

It was very casual BBQ at table by yourself place , we can cook in front of us under our eating pace which gives more talking with guest. I would recommend this to friends.

Quality of food is always great here and staff are always willing to work with dietary requirements. If you're on a keto diet it's easy enough to navigate to items you can eat and if ever in doubt just have them skip any sauces and go with just salt/pepper seasoning on the meats.

Overall I enjoy Gyu-kaku at all their locations. Generally the service is great and the food very tasty. This time however we were stuck in a tucked away corner and the waitress forgot about us a few times. We had to flag someone down as we were missing items from our set or we had large lag times between some dishes (though it was very busy). I think she may have been having bad day as she seemed a bit harried when we were seated (the restaurant was very full). The floor manager did come over and help the table a few times after we had to flag someone down for cooking utensils, sauce dishes (normally these are already on the table but for some reason weren't) and a few other small things. They were great at checking in with us after these issues though as we had a couple of food allergies/dietary requirements (shellfish allergy for one, egg allergy for another). While the service was a bit spotty this time, overall it was still enjoyable and they did correct the problems during the later portion of the seating. Luckily I frequent this chain fairly often so the small hiccups haven't influenced me to avoid going in the future.

This was our second time and it was just as good as the first. We love the food. The meats are very tasty and the combos are very good value. Service is exactly as you would expect, not too intrusive but always helpful. Our waiter explained the benefits of using their app and helped us get signed up. They were also very accommodating in letting us choose to sit in the rear section of the restaurant as we find it quieter and more intimate. The only downside is that it is a bit of an expensive night out, but we find it more than worth it. Thanks! We will definitely be back.

Pretty good Japanese BBQ restaurant. Food tasted good, services was great. Server checked on us couple times and asked if everything was ok. Only thing was after the grill was on food came a bit late so the grill got too hot.

We went there for a get together with 4 other friends and we ordered the Shogun Set.
They were having a 20% off so we saved a lot more than we were and the food and service was amazing on top of that.
I'd recommend to bring friends and family to this restaurant.

Need to make a reservation or there will be a lengthy wait but worth the wait! Drinks are very reasonably priced and ordering a package e.g meatlovers makes for a very fun and special evening. It worked out being excellently priced for how much food was served and the service was great. My favourite restaurant experience after 3 weeks in Canada.

The food was pretty standard, value of the food is fine, the service could be better. We all felt like our table was being neglected for a while only because the server was ending his shift and had passed our table to another server. Other servers didn't seem like they want to wait on our table but to informed us that they will notify our server that we needed assistance.

Recommend reservations as this place was already busy at 5pm. We arrived early for pre-show dining and enjoyed the Happy Hour BBQ special for 2. Our server, Daniel was great and explained everything. We had fun grilling and cooking together - with no cleanup. After Vancouver’s unexpected snow storm, the opportunity to experience comfort food Japanese style hit the spot!

Awesome dining experience for someone looking to do something different. This place is perfect for friend group night outs or even just two people. I recommend getting a reservation in advance to avoid waiting, because this place is super popular.
