I made a reservation for 6:30 PM, checked in with the host at 6:25-ish. The host informed me that they need a few more minutes until my table was ready. My boyfriend and I took a seat and waited. A little after 6:35 PM a couple walked through the door, and the same host who checked me in called, "Meghan"? Another couple (who just walked in) followed her without checking in and took our table! I went to the other hosted and asked how long for my table, and she said oh the other person took the wrong person (other person's name was Meggie)! How can the host take the wrong couple when I checked in with that host? On top of that other couple just walked through the door? When the other host spoke to the host that made the mistake, that host just looked at me blanked face. It just showed that host did not care at all (no apology or anything!). My boyfriend and I were not seated until 7:05 PM.
Food was good. Our waitress was very friendly and polite. We went with the premium. My boyfriend who never been there liked the food. We tried all the beef and the pork belly. For veggies we got mushrooms and spinach. We thought the spinach was surprisingly good. For dessert, we shared a scoop of matcha ice-cream (incredible) and both got smores.
Good, I recommend order the lady m cake which will come with ice cream. Also beef tongue Is so gooood
Love coming here. Food is great and our server Sonny was awesome!!
As a loyal customer, this visit was one of the best. We had no problems using the coupon, the food came out in a timely manner and was delicious, our waiter was amazing - he knew when we needed to change the grill, and also the drinks were also flavorful. That day was really a 10/10 experience at Gyu-Kaku. We would love to visit again soon.
Above average, great place for friends gathering.
Our server, Ann, was incredible. We had a large party and she did a great job. Food was amazing. We'll be back!
We made a reservation but we couldn’t get seated till half an hour later.
The food comes out sporadically or all at once but was very tasty and the service was good. I would come back again for sure
Always amazing! The Valentine's day menu was diverse and well crafted. We'll always be back!
It was amazing
food was amazing!
It was our first time and our server Angela was attentive and super friendly! The food was amazing and it’s definitely one of the best bbq! Will definitely be back!
Always excellent, high quality meat, and the environment is remarkably not-smoky for this kind of restaurant
Great food and service. But really poorly organized and slow to seat people. They took 40 minutes to seat us even though we had a reservation (made days in advance). We were a party of six and saw several sixtops with groups of two and three sitting at them. Really seems like they have a bad system/management. Also don't sign up for their rewards because they will spam you relentlessly.
Fast and East service with great tastes and friendly servers.
Great food and atmosphere. For a busy Saturday night service was prompt and friendly. The food and drinks were amazing as always.
The food delivery was extremely slow, our server seems not really helpful to solve the problem.
It's just so fun to cook at your table! They do all the work for you prepping and cleaning up and you get to have all the fun of cooking and enjoying the tasty food!!!
Food was delicious. Server was extremely nice. Worth coming.
Great as always!
Awesome as always. Will be my go-to date spot from now on.
Pretty sure I asked for a place where 2 people could sit and talk without it being super noisy and I sat exactly where I wanted! Helped the dining experience to be a whole lot better. This will be the place I go to in the future!
Great food, and service, as always. The flavors are what we go for..
Love this place, go all the time but service was very poor today and the new menu is not good
Our waitress was very attentive to all of our needs, she came to our table constantly to check on our water, how we were enjoying the food, and asked if we had any questions or further needs. The ambiance was great (seeing as I was on a date) my fiancé and I had a wonderful time and it was a lot of fun to cook the food in front of us and share that experience together.
We always go and love it. This was the first time we went around lunch time. We got the fix menu ninja.
I thought the selection was not that great. We didn't like the creamed corn, the meat selection was very fatty, we had to ask for additional meat. The service is always attentive and we really like it, i didn't think the lunch was that great.
AMAZING FOOD LOVE THIS EXPERIENCE. SERVER WAS SO NICE
Me and my girlfriend went there on a date last Friday. Very quite very good food would love to come back soon!
very poor customer service. food was great. but we didnt get at least 50% of our order
I had a reward wHich restaurant did not honor. They claimed that it is valid after 5 pm. But there was no specific time in the description of my reward. what a pity.
It’s kind of ridiculous that if two people go and 1 wants all you can eat and the other is vegetarian the vegetarian is forced to buy an all you can eat deal too. Not very smart !
The food was amazing, definitely would recommend. Definitely have to come back again for the food.
Food was good, equipment kept failing and service was sub par. Extremely long waits for a Monday night, with it taking 15 minutes to get raw food especially if your table is timed at 90 minutes. Burner kept going out multiple times and needing to be relit. Would not go back.
The quality of meat is number one, fantastic value, amount of food. It has something for everyone. Less expensive to expensive options. But the servers are wonderful
The service was amazing everytime I go it's so much fun to with with friends.
Very good food. Very fun. Made us wait 20 minutes even though we had a reservation.
Great value and delicious food
Our waitress was very nice but must have been busy because she only asked for our order twice throughout our dinner and we were sat down late despite reservations and did not get the full 2 hours and then a manager came to remind us that she needed the table for the next guests but didn’t realize that our card was already waiting with the bill and the waitress had not come by in a long time
This restaurant has delicious food, but the service is not good. We ordered 5 dishes, and after the server brought 1 dish, we were left in the dust for more than 20 minutes ( no more food came). What’s worse, the server only brought one dish every time we asked. As a result, we asked 4-5 times to get our meals come.
