I’ve been to this restaurant twice in the past and I absolutely love it so I was so excited to go again but I don’t think I had the best waitress, I would order things and she would repeat what I would ask for and then completely forget or just not do it. I ordered a strawberry mojito, waitress brought me strawberry lemonade, I asked her for my drink again she brought it at second request. Asked for rice had to had to ask her two times for it to be brought out, and we asked her for forks total of three times. She never came with them we asked a different waiter and he brought us the forks in under a minute. Gyu kaku is a great restaurant but I was dissatisfied and disappointed with the service this time around.

We arrived at our reservation time at 11:30 am, but waited 20 mins to get seated. My friends didn’t like over waiting especially being in time.

Great service, food was good. No unlimited menu option due to meat shortages but still a good amount of food for the price. Would recommend as a fun date spot or great place for dinner with a group of friends.

The grill had issues for our visit, but I'll write it under bad luck. All of the food was great and it was well worth the trip.

It pains me to write a bad review since Gyu-Kaku is one of my favorites restaurants. However, it was my girlfriend’s birthday and we got sprayed with scorching hot grease. We thought they were giving us 50% off our total bill but gave only 15%, which felt like they were trivializing what happened.

I went here for a double-date and it was so much fun! It’s a great atmosphere for that kind of event.

I wasn’t a huge fan of the seating but the food and company made up for it!

Very bad service. No water being refilled throughout the whole meal.
Servers are rude while trying to help reignite the faulty stove. Though the food is acceptable
Not recommended
