Food was great! The server really tried her best but the bar was way behind on every order. I do belive it would have been way better if drinks were served as ordered. Besides that everything was great.
Dough was our server he was very helpful in explaining everything to us. The food and steak marinade was on point and the Yuzu sake was delightful. Def coming back
Food was delicious, really fun dining experience and followed covid protocols
Great choice and wonderful food. Wish is was all-you-can-eat like Okinawa for the price.
Staff was very polite and helpful. There was a lot of great food! Unfortunately, there was a time limit of 1:30hr. But we would visit again.
I am upset I loved the experience I had on Thursday. I sat down was given the happy hour cocktail menu on Thursday paid half for my drinks at the table. I go back today Wednesday for Happy and food with a date and was embarrassed by the manager and waitress. I ordered drinks two rounds, and was told they are not part of happy hour. I explained to the manager I had the same deal 5 days prior Thursday. Luckily I came home and found the receipt in my jean pocket from Thursday. I wish this place was consistent with their bar pricing. How dear the manager make up up some story about you can only order drinks from the bar before you sit down at the table. If that was the case my drinks on Thursday should have been $12. I ordered 4 drinks paid $26. In VA you can't sit at the bar during covid19, and they only have 2 tables around the bar that were taken most of the night. Can't sit in the patio because it was raining, sleet, and snowing poor customer service! I was trying to propose to my girlfriend and you ruined the experience over a happy hour drink special. I did see your sign posted in the bathroom, but again that was not the experience you offered me the prior Thursday.
So much fun. Definitely worth the value. Service is great too! They do a good job with taking covid precautions
My favorite spot overall
The service was A1. First time going and the staff explained all details. We had an amazing time.
Enjoyed the happy hour! The quality of meat is so good. Gonna come again.
It’s was a bit pricey and the meats could have been of better quality. Looked as if they had served us thawed, refrozen and then thawed again meats. At 15$ per ounce of the so-called better cuts of meats, the quality could’ve and should’ve been much better.
I’ve visited Gyu Kaku 3 times over the last month and a have and it was a really good dining experience each time. The beef sukiyaki bibimbap is my favorite. The hostess takes your temp upon entry and everything is clean and socially distance.
The food was delicious. The service was outstanding. Absolutely incredible. My husband and I cannot wait to go back and try more! You HAVE to eat here.
Awesome restaurant and will definitely visit again.
The food and service were great. Not a single complaint. We had a lot of fun!
for those who have never been, once you try it, you will start planning your next trip there. i take all my out of towner friends here and when they come back this is the place they crave.
The staff was very attentive and Took great care to ensure a sanitary environment for the diners. The food quality was excellent and the portions were generous.
Went here for the first time over the weekend. It was a fun dining experience with some really tasty food. We did one of the menu combinations (meat lovers) and added the cucumbers and the garlic mushrooms. Cucumber appetizer was great, mushrooms were ok - just not quite what we were thinking. The various meats were really good and the two of us weren't able to finish it all. We also added the sorbet (basically sorbet ice cubes) at the end and they were a great, refreshing end to the meal along with the s'mores that were included.
Always enjoy Gyu Kaku!
waitress kept reaching over the food
Overall was great!
The place was really great and the food was delicious and so was the house sake. Can't wait to go back.
I had a great experience!
The restaurant experience was nice and they seemed to have great happy hour deals. We did wait around ten minutes before we were served water--after that, the service was really good. I would rate it higher but the value for the money just seems off. It was $4.50 for zucchini and it was probably less than 1/4 of a whole zucchini. With nearby Korean bbq giving much larger portions, it will be hard to go back. The food was really good though!
Food and service was great. The kids meal was perfect for our kids. Will definitely return and recommend for others.
I really enjoyed my dining experience during these time. Following all the protocols and ensuring that we have the best experience. The food was amazing like always and the servers and hostess were on top of everything
Best jbbq place in the DMV, lots of variety and different sets. Service is always on top of it.
I felt that owner or chef have been changed.
Nothing good as they used to be before.
I don’t think I would go back again.
Delicious food and great service. With COVID still being an active issue, they spaced diners with empty tables in between and did temperature checks for people entering the restaurant. I felt they took reasonable precautions. I'd come again!
Discovered this restaurant in Seattle, didn’t know it was a chain! Had to take my family here ASAP when I knew there was one by me. Food was delicious as always, with the set combo you can’t switch out things you don’t like (which is frustrating).
This restaurant is out of our favorites! Great portions, friendly service. Food came out quickly as well.
Except for the price, i have nothing negative to say about Gyu-Kaku. We spent 60/person but wasn't full, which was not really a surprise as we know the good quality comes with high price.
Incredible foot but definitely not cheap. With 3 people our bill rapidly approached north of $200.
My boyfriend and I had an AMAZING time at Gyu-Kaku. We ordered a meat lovers combo and got a plate of beef tongue and Kobe Style Kalbi short rib added to our meal, all the meat was super tender especially the Kalbi and everything tasted amazing!! Our waiter Teguh was phenomenal and very attentive. He made sure that whenever our grill got too charred, he was there to replace it super fast! One of the highlights of the night were the s’mores that were included in the combo. We had such a fun experience making s’mores again, and it’s been a LONG time since we made s’mores, so it was a nice addition to an already outstanding dinner. The atmosphere was pretty quiet considering it was a Saturday night and pretty busy. We had such an awesome time and will definitely be back and hungrier to try new things!!
It was great experience. All my family enjoyed food. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful.
Ita solid food and sokid service each time I go.
Amazing as always! Health screening, temp check, sanitization, social distancing, they were practicing everything the best they could. We really appreciated it.
Everything was incredible. So happy they are open again.
If you like sugar and some meat go here. All the marinates are too sweet. Food was disappointing. Service was good. Appetizers were reheated and not fresh. This is not authentic japanese.
