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.
Great spot felt safe and comfortable. Good food. !!
I don’t know whether I just haven’t had this in so long because of covid or the meat was just amazing but that was the best meal I’ve ever had at this location
Food was incredible! Awesome experience, extremely kind staff.
Great food, good job at social distancing, felt very safe. The restaurant was very quiet perhaps due to the social distancing. Service was extremely good too. Highly recommend!
Great food, price is good for the quality you are getting
perfect experience. waiter was actually a friend of ours. pleasant experience overall
Exceptional service and food was great as always.
This is always one of my favorite places to eat.
Good value Lunch. Server is not friendly but does the job.
Came here during lunch with my husband and we got the lunch set. It was just the right portions for both of us at such a great deal. Meat quality is good! Def will come back.
Best service of ANY restaurant in town--Japanese-style, staff always with smiles, squats down to talk orders from customers, observant and efficient. And way better quality beef and more variety of cuts than most Korean BBQ places in town (plus bad attitude at Korean places).
Good food, great service
Great interactive meal. BBQ your own meats and veggies in the center of the table and have fun eating the variety of items. Suggest a pre-built option with starts, mains, and a dessert. Always have a reservation or you'll wait. Saturday at 7pm was an 1:30min wait time, but with a reservation we were seated immediately.
Birthday!!! With friends
So delicious! A go-to spot with friends and family.
The beef quality was really good and worth the money, also the appetizers was delicious, i really enjoyed my time there. Definitely going back someday :)
it was my friends’ first experience at gyu-kaku for one of my friend’s birthday and they already want to go back! thankss!! :D
Made a reservation and still got the table by the kitchen and the bathrooms. Annoying. Otherwise fine for the money.
It was great!
We liked the food. Very quick service
Great food, great ambiance and good price point all in all. Would definitely come back again and again.
Sharon was a great waitress. The staff members were lovely and the menu had a lot of options!
