The food was good, per usual. The salad was fresh. Service was amazing.

Two things were not cool:

1. The place is tiny. Smaller than other Gyu-Kaku’s I have been to and the interior is dated.

2. A group (six) of unaccompanied ~15 year old girls were seated in the booth right behind my booth at they we super loud and unruly. I wish management told them to quiet down. It is a small place and other patrons do not want their nonsense ruining our lunch.

Other that that, all was good, but the noise heavily impacts this review score. Yes, it was that bad.

The food quality keeps getting worse and worse. They always run out of the popular items which is bad. Will not be coming back here after more than 10 years.

Food and quality of meat was great; service was lacking a bit, we received our food but no plates or utensils and had to grab them off another table next to us to eat our food. Other than that was pretty good

I came here with my wife for date night. Probably some of the worst service I’ve ever had. Host was rude, he didn’t say one word to us and he wandered around the restaurant looking for a table. The waiter would walk away from us mid sentence when asking for help. The food was great but for the price and customer service we won’t be returning to this location.

Food is consistent across the branches. We've had better service in the branch inside Westfield Topanga. The valet parking staff tried to rob us by double charging and lying. So beware. Don't pay for the parking until you get your car.

No covid checks at the door
Hostess refused to wear a mask correctly - even after being asked to.
Grill at our table did not work.
Kitchen brought out food out of order (and cold when it was supposed to be hot) and staff did not seem to care that we were unable to cook the food.
Do not go to this location!!

Food was okay, meats were great, the spicy tuna on crispy rice can be taken out of the menu. I went with just one friend and we were charged double. Had to go back and get refunded which they took some time to do and good thing we kept the receipt. Server was nice but could have. But the experience was not that great overall.

This place used to be great. However upon our visit yesterday, we quickly realized everything was amiss.

We walked in and there was a line to check in. A cluster of people waiting and no one at the front. The host eventually moseyed over with no sense of urgency (and with his mask barely over his mouth, leaving his entire nose outside the mask?!), and finally sat the first party waiting. Then we waited 12 minutes (we timed it) before he even acknowledged us or came back to the host stand! It was insane and e ethane behind us waiting couldn’t believe it either. Someone behind us actually walked over to him and tried to get him to come back to the host stand and help us all.

We got seated and the menus were sticky, the table was tricky, and all 3 sauce bottles were sticky. That’s gross, Covid or no Covid. They were out of several things we ordered, including basics like green onions and shishito peppers.

Our server was nice and the food was fine but not greats it’s sad to see how it’s gone downhill. If the host had taken some pride in his job or cared at all, it would’ve helped. But being out of a ton of menu items and basic ingredients wasn’t good and overall it was a real disappointment.

This is the worst Gyu-Kaku I have ever been to!! I saw staff members barely wearing their masks (showing their entire nose and upper lip) which is extemely uncomfortable to see given that masks are required for dining in. They were also not very friendly. Food came out SO SLOWLY and our server was terrible with actually clearing our plates/bowls when they were empty. Sukiyaki bowl had barely ANY meat and when food was brought by. The music was too loud for the nature of the dining experience, where it’s already loud to be seated so close to many other tables AND have to grill your own food, and this made it difficult to hear our servers when they would ask us questions or explain which meats they were bringing by. Seating was uncomfortable, due to the set-up of the tables and seats (cannot stretch out legs). Our server was clearly eager to send us out, would never dine here again.

The hostess would not seat us even though 4 of 6 were there.. then she complained we were blocking the aisle.. finally seated us.
Our bill was incorrect by $100 and it took several attempts at correcting it. We had been billed for items already included in set menu options. It was very annoying.

Took my boyfriend for his birthday. The food was quick to cook, fresh, and there was plenty to get full and take extra home. The ambiance was nice with the lighting dimmed mid meal making each table feel private. The music was a bit loud but okay. Overall we had a great time. Our server was also great. I highly recommend.

We learned there is new management. They are either getting used to the menu or changing up some of the recipes, some of the food tasted different. There was more lighting throughout the space which was nice.

We are never disappointed in Gyu- Kaku. Great food for a great price. The only negative is that they frequently are out of green tea ice cream.

I love Gyu-Kaku and the food is always amazing. However, my experience in this location was horrible. Yesterday (10/01/2021), we had reservation at 12:30pm, got a table right away since it was not busy yet. We ordered lunch specials (miso soup, salad, rice and 3 kind of meats). We got our soup at 1:10pm, after a while our salad and 6 kind of meats finally arrived. I had to turn on the stove myself since our server (David) was MIA. We didn’t get some rice so we had to ask the food runner to get it (she was very nice). Our drinks were empty and we had to ask the host to call our server. Unfortunately, there was a bug inside my drink and it was hard to find our server so we had to ask the host to get another one. Our server was finally back from MIA after we almost finished our food. We wanted to get dessert but since he was nowhere to be found we decided to ask for our check. Host and food runner gave us outstanding service but our server was terrible. We came out from the restaurant unhappy.

the host wanted me to wait outside and we did 2 min later a group of people with no reservation came in and got seated right away. went in 7 min later and the host never acknowledged our reservation the first time since he asked again if I had a reservation to which I answered yes then asked if we wanted to be seated. I mean why would you ask that? Next our server only came to us if we waved our hand never checked on us and our meat took for ever to get to our table never changed the grill overall our service was horrible and our portions of food was mediocre never coming back

The place could do with a deep clean and sprucing up. It feels runs down. The service and food is good, but in that area for that price it needs to step up the cleanliness and ambiance.
