Showed up on time, but waited for 10 mins without anyone attending or making an eye contact!
Rustic ambiance and not for any special occasions.

I have been yearning to go to Gyu-Kaku since the pandemic, and it was worth the wait. The price seems to increase a little bit, but it's still pretty reasonable. We got 2 lunch meals and an additional dish of meat, and we were really full at the end.

Good service as always, good value, especially during lunch, highly recommended.

This was my second time coming to this restaurant and I love it. Food it great, Drinks are tasty and the cuts of meat are amazing. They even tell you how long to cook each cut of meat. We always have the best service but this time only one thing was off. We had 5 people in our party but order a option off the menu that said for 4 people. We asked that we add additional for the extra person.... Server said "ok' but that did not happen. We had to ask every time for the additional soup, piece of meat or smores. It was not only at the beginning that we asked but at multiple times through out the meal about the 5th person an can we another one of something. I will definitely go back but this was a bit frustrating.

My party of 2 had reservations for 830pm. We arrived at 820, and were greeted promptly with a temperature check and seated immediately. I had made reservations specifically for the start of Happy Hour to take advantage of the Happy Hour Combo for $60. But the server notified us as we were seated that due to vendor complications, a lot of items on the menu were not available so he recommended we not order that. No mention was made of replacements, but it didn’t matter. Ordering A La Carte turned out better anyway.

We got the Kalbi Chuck Rib, Bistro Hanger Steak, Filet Mignon, the Skirt Steak, Umakara Pork, And Garlic Shoyu Chicken Thighs. It was all delicious, especially the pork and the Hanger Steak. The Kimchi was great too. I might not have ordered the Garlic Fried Rice had we did the combo, and in this case it worked to our advantage as it was amazing!

The service was awesome. Everyone was really attentive and friendly. They checked on us regularly throughout the dinner to check if we wanted any more food or drinks, as well as to change the grill.

Definitely will be back!

The food is very good, however, our server that night was not. My first impression was that he really did not want to be there. He took our order which was several items a la carte. He did not write them down and I was not surprised when some items were not served. We ended up eating lots of beef but no vegetables. I spoke with the manager and she offered us a dessert. Ok, I guess. The bill arrived with the correct items we actually got, I think, but the happy hour prices were not applied. After a short argument and a couple tries they brought a ‘discounted’ bill. Though I believe the actual happy hour prices would have been less. At that point I just wanted to leave. I don’t know if I’ll be back.

This resturant is on poor repair and makes me concerned about cleanliness. Service was only adequate. Seating split, ceiling hanging down in Ladies room etc

I am so disappointed because I went to the one in Cupertino for several years with never any concern. Service was excellent and resturant was very clean

Great food as always with good service. However, you ran out of gin for the Lychees cocktail and when we substituted gin for rum, the waitress came back a few mins later saying that you ran out of Lychee! Other than this "speed bump" all is well.

Went there on weekend for lunch, but they said lunch menu was only for weekdays. The lunch menu online did not state that. Then we asked about the brunch menu on weekends, which was also online, but that was discontinued altogether. Very disappointed.

Love Gyu-Kaku - they've been a go-to for my wife and I for years when we lived in Hawaii. We were both incredibly thrilled when they opened a location in Bellevue; it's still a bit of a long haul drive but worth every mile and the food is worth every penny. Meat is perfectly marinated and always super fresh, and now the serveres recommend cook times for each side which helped us to make our meat even more perfect. They also did a great job of enforcing safety protocols and ensuring diners are safe and enjoy their meal. 10x recommend!

The food itself wasn’t as good as I remember dozen of times eating at other Gyu-Kaku restaurants. This location was not good in terms of food. The service was good.

The food and beer are good. But the price is kind of higher now so it is easily to spend more than $100 for two.
