we got the Shogun for 6 people...we were left hanging for the next meat everytime. even if the guy who took the empty dishes saw that there’s nothing on the grill anymore. same experience with their all you can eat option before...it takes a long time to call somebody to order the next meat. the food is really good! service definitely needs to improve.

The service was really bad. We got our appetizers after the main dishes of meat and vegetables were given to us to cook. It took forever to flag down our server. It was super busy and just chaotic. I don’t think the all you can eat is worth it. Food wasn’t as good as before. Just a very bad experience overall.

Restaurant is small but it was still very comforting. Service was good, servers were attentive to our needs. Food was really good, Mondays are a good day to go since it's happy hour all day, good budget for two people.

I would recommend someone who wants to grab a simple dinner with friends or family. In my opinion, for general visit in Beverly Hills... I would not recommend anyone to come in if they want to fancy up a nice dinner. That place is good for people just want to stop by and eat. I found this uninteresting because I tried the same restaurant in NYC and it was extremely delicious than here. At least, I tried to eat here and found that less pleasant, not equivalent to NYC.

Very good food, friendly staff. This location is quite rundown, though, needing many repairs, fresh coats of paint (especially in the graffitied men’s room), and general upkeep. It hasn’t been maintained well.

I came for one thing only, which is to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Everything went as planned. It was my first time trying out the restaurant, and they fulfilled what I was for.

The Meat felt of very poor quality and the waitress found a dead fly on the raw meat that we ordered (Yes, A DEAD FLY!). Also the appetizers came WAAAAY too late after the grilled meats came. Appetizers should come before or at the same time of the main meal. Everything felt like it was done OUT OF ORDER. Also, the macaron ice cream sandwiches tasted really old and stale like they were there for 3 weeks.

Cooking the meat is part of the fun. They have everything here! Spicy tuna to nice steak and plenty of drinks. We got sake and I also had a strawberry milkshake and it was the perfect pair.
I’m a big fan of gyu kaku. It’s smart to make a res!

Really fun place to have dinner with friends and cook your own meal! 😊. Meats were well marinaded and tasty. Best picks were sirloin, filet and the garlic chicken. Also liked the garlic noodles and signature rice. Service was friendly and timely. Place needs a little TLC and a deep clean. Tears in banquettes, light bulbs out or missing ect.

It’s a very small location only one grill at a table unacceptable if you’re going in a large party. Service was horrible they were very short staffed.

I have been to the chain many times but this particular location was a huge disappointment! The hostess was RUDE, the table she sat us at was disgusting and then the waiter brought out my friend’s water with something floating in it and when she asked for another he said its probably left over lemon... there was NO lemon in either of our waters! We left without eating. I would never advise anyone to go here, what a disappointment!!! I asked to speak to the manager he could care less about the events and stood there with a blank stare and asked if we would like him to reseat us. The insanity!

Made reservations at 10pm , waiter was nice enough to give us time to order due to their last call being around 10:00pm on a Sunday night. Overall everything was great!! However, I do really wish they can notate somewhere in their menu about their last call so I can plan future reservations accordingly.

The food is always great. Service is usually fast and friendly. If they do make a mistake, they do what is needed to correct the issue. Rewards program is also a great deal for getting discounts on your bill.
