·Dined 4 days ago

We made a reservation at 8pm for 5 people. I called in asking if we can change it for 7ppl in which they confirmed they can. When I got there they couldn't find my reservation and then proceeded to make me wait 50 minutes and when they sat me down it was at a 5 person table. I asked the general manager if I could move to a table of 8 because they were getting up soon and she told me someone else was coming for 8 people. After 20 minutes I asked again as the table was still open and they usually cancel reservations after 15 minutes. She said no again. This experience was a horrible, she was rude and cold and offered no help. Its sad because I come here once a week sometimes twice a week to eat. She didn't offer any compensation and didnt even really say sorry at all.

I really like this place however was a little disappointed in the experience.

Had to have the whole group (7 of us) relocate to another table since the ventilation was not working. While that was ok I guess, it kind of was a hassle since we were well into our first course.

Secondly it took forever to get my other meat dish I ordered. After asking for it I didn't really enjoy it as I was mostly through my meal. It ended up being out of sequence and not very enjoyable so far into the meal.

Meat centric fun cooking with a group.
We were 3 college age guys and 1 mom.
They ate everything.
Make sure grill gets re oiled
meat gets sticky , veggies go in foil wrapped packets on grill - a little hard to get them cooked
Filet mignon was best cut

Great time and great food. Please fix the deteriorating decor (i.e., having a hole in the wall is just plain lazy)

However, love this place and highly recommend!

日本食なのに、日本語話せるスタッフ一人もいなかった!ビバリヒルズにしてはちょっと失望、英語と日本語両方話せるスタッフがいればもっといいかな!
セットメニューの豚肉見た目は凄く悪かったから、日本ならありえないですね!味は良くも悪くも無くて、食べれるから!

Not as happy this time, we had to several times for our steamed rice, soy sauce.
The computer did not calculate the lunch special properly and were overcharged by $28.00

The outside landscaping is really bad. It should be worked on.

Food was great

Our first time trying this place & it was fun and delish! We ordered the combo (where they bring out a set menu of different things) everything was great! Our waiter was really nice too, and they don’t keep you waiting. A recommended experience.

Our family celebrated a birthday here and we all had the Prime AYCE. Service was good and so was the food - the main reasons why we come back. The only things that stood out to me : with a timed AYCE group, our meat orders did not start coming out until 25 minutes from ordering. The appetizer items also came staggered, one-at-a-time and often we were short on food items which we fixed by ordering two items at a time. Our server made up for the delays by being attentive with beverage refills.

The front room at this restaurant is nice enough, though shabby, but the back table that they sat us at--for a business meal, was a disgrace. The booth seats were tattered, the walls were dirty with pealing paint. We immediately asked to move but one of the other tables for 6 was broken (the one right in front which looked terrible) and one was equally shabby. I was embarrassed to be entertaining business associates and fortunately had beaten them to the restaurant. I left and went next door where luckily there was a table. The host at Gyu Kaku was apologetic but also acknowledged that the restaurant is in dire need of refurbishment and a face lift and that we weren't the first to leave like that. I suggest they close and get that done. Very depressing and disappointing.

This was not my first time at Gyu-Kaku. I took a friend that had never been. He enjoyed it, however, they don't carry gluten-free soy sauce. I would suggest they offer gluten-free options. Otherwise, my experience was great as always.

Me and my bf went here for our five month Memorial Day. The garlic rib eye is our favorite meet. Highly recommend. We went for all you can eat. However, the menu doesn't include drinks 🍹. And the only parking is velvet, which cost $8 for parking.
