Wasn't able to have an available seat by the time of arrival. Wait bit longer while I made reservation. Also, social distancing is needed in waiting areas.

The service was really good. Specially the waitress who served our table. Very nice lady even though they were very busy. Food was good. Hanger steak is a must!

We had a wonderful time at Gyu-Kaku. We were fortunate to have a table that felt far away from all others, so it felt a lot safer Covid-wise. The food was delicious and we had a lot of fun cooking together on our date. Definitely would go again.

Our reservation was given to another waiting group which resulted in us being seated 40 minutes after our original reservation time.

We had 515pm reservations... but weren’t seated until 6pm ... we sat down, waited another 10 minutes before anyone came to take our order. The manager took our order for premium menu of 8 items. We waited another 15 minutes before 2 steak items came out. We finished those off, still waiting for white rice and vegetables and the other steak items. The manager comes by to ask how everything is...we let her know we are missing half the order she says “let me check on this!” 2 more steak things come out.. still no rice, no veggies etc we waited we wait ... we get up and ask someone at the front they reply the same thing “we’ll check on that” we re-order some meat items .. still no veggies ... finally 1 hour into meal we get the 2 bowls of veggies ... it was a horrible experience, service was horrible. They should have WRITTEN the order down instead of trying to remember it all. Not to mention, they weren’t that busy. Mid way through our meal, half the tables were empty but yet they couldn’t get our order right, or our correctly or on time. We barely had any thing to eat in the 90 min time frame they allotted. The food is great, but the service needs major work!!

It was an amazing experience. My friend flew from WA. She enjoyed Gyu Kaku a lot! And it was definitely one of the best Japanese BBQs she had!
