Gekkō is a japanese-inspired steakhouse and lounge from the minds of groot hospitality’s david grutman and the recording artist bad bunny.

Located in miami’s thriving brickell neighborhood, gekkō immerses patrons in a fusion of elevated steakhouse surroundings with the modernity–and precision–of japanese cuisine. Signature dishes include premium steak cuts, jaw-dropping sushi inventions, and delicious seafood appetizers. A bespoke cocktail program, an extensive wine list and bottle service offerings complement the menu.

Gekkō’s aesthetic is lush, luxe and jewel-toned. With design accents like custom wallpaper, dark and rich palettes and hints of soft golden light, the restaurant transports visitors to an intimate, rare nocturnal world. As it happens, the word “Gekkō” itself translates from Japanese to English as “moonlight.”

    Gekko is a one time visit, it’s extremely overpriced and they sit you at a sushi bar when your a couple. It’s a place to go have a drink and go somewhere else.

    Fuimos por lo famoso que es el lugar ya que lo relacionan con Bad Bunny pero sinceramente no regresaríamos aunque la atención del personal es buena, no tienen la capacidad para hacer tantas reservaciones en la hora indicada, nuestra reserva era a las 10pm, llegamos 9:40pm y estuvimos sobre 1hra parados en el bar esperando por una mesa y en el bar está la incomodidad de que está muy lleno y no tienen ni butacas para la espera, cuando nos sentaron en la mesa finalmente el mesero nos indica que debemos de ordenar todo lo que queremos de inmediato (hello estás con hambre y si te dejas engañar lo quieres pedir todo y los platos no están tan baratos) la prisa con que quieren hacerlo todo cuando estuvimos esperando por sobre 1hra no me gustó la experiencia ni a mí ni a mi esposo, al final la propina está incluida en el ticket el 20% y aún así te dice el mesero que esa es para todo el equipo que la de él y su asistente es adicional. No lo recomiendo pero si quieren la experiencia háganlo maybe les va mejor.

    We waited over an hour for our table. We had reservations. We watched a multitude of people be sat before us. I did ask for seating for my husband who is handicap. the seating we waited a hour for was nothing special and they could’ve sat us anywhere. The food was good and it was definitely a vibe as far as the ambiance. The hour wait dampened the mood

    Food was great but super expensive and I understand that because you’re paying for the name and the place. They have a 18/20 % mandatory service charge. on top of that the waiter will then ask you to add a tip since the service charge doesn’t go to them. So who does it go to? I ended up paying 40% on tip and service on over price food. Never again

    Terrible experience at gekko, waited 30 minutes to be seated for a table of 2 . The waitress was great not overall a bad experience. The food was not the quality I expected Komodo was much better . The ambiance was nice so if that’s what you’re looking for then you will love here.

    food was amazing. The tuna tartar with caviar and gold Flake was just outrageous so good! I wasn’t a fan that when we were immediately seated, we were told that we needed to order our entire meal and the food came out very very quick, and it definitely impeded on enjoying the dining experience.  I don’t mind paying the prices because they are high, but I certainly don’t want to be rushed through my meal.

    Be aware of untrained service people and managers- no background and training in fine dining… they come every 5min to remind you that you have only 105min to enjoy. Very disappointing and disrespectful Especially while the food is awesome even priced a bit too high

    I don’t know why you even bother to accept reservations! It isn’t nice when you have a reservation, and you have to wait an HOUR for your table. Then, you make sure that all tables are held only for 1h45. You treat people like you are doing your clients a favor!!! That why this restaurant is always having bad reviews! The food is not something to die for; the waiting time is ridiculous. Not worth the money! The only positive thing was our waiter; he tried his best honestly.

    While my reservation was set for 8pm, upon arriving at 8:05pm i was told by a VERY UNPLEASANT hostess named Anna that there was a 30-45mns wait. What’s the point of making reservations? She proceeded to say (in a very demeaning tone) that i could choose to be seated outside immediately. Of course i declined. Who would want to sit on the curbside?!?! So my party and i went to the bar and ended up spending approximately $155 on drinks as they made us wait over 1 hour for hour table. I finally had enough and asked to speak with a manager who of course did not do anything to accommodate us. We were finally seated 1 hour and 5mns past our reservation time. So if you’re been on the fence about going there, DON’T. Their service is mediocre as best. That establishment doesn’t prove themselves in offering a great dining experience. Seems like they just want people to be in and out so they can make as much as possible. For the money you’ll be spending there, you might as well go to Mila, Giselle, Zuma, Queen, where the service is top notch. In conclusion, i will not give these people a penny again.
