    Amazing experience. My wife and I love Korean BBQ so this was right up our alley with Japanese BBQ. Everything was delicious and the prices are great compared to other BBQ places we have been too. A must try experience! This restaurant is going down as one of our favorites.

    Ive been frequently eating at Gyu-Kaku for about 5 years and this particular location for 2 years. Before Covid I never really had a bad experience. Everything just takes a lot time and the servers seem new or clueless. Today, the time it took for our server to bring us water, lemon and take our order was entirely too long. It wasn’t the normal, “let me check in on my table and ask how everything was going”. It was more like asking multiple times for me, having to track the server down to remind them to bring us stuff or put in our orders. Seeing them go check on someone else and spend walking right past you or ignoring you to speak with another customer or co worker. Spend over an hour and a half here and most of the time wasn’t eating or cooking. Most of the time was waiting and trying to find the server. Maybe since it was a Friday before a holiday it was a little busy but it didn’t seem as if it was busy or at least not busy for that long.

    I wanted to love this place so much but I won’t be returning. I want to start by saying that our waiter Alex provided an excellent service and my review has nothing to do with him. The food was not good. No seasoning on anything and it just didn’t taste good and I am not sure if it was because our stove part wasn’t working properly it took for ever to cook our food and the flame kept going out and all you hear was the gas running. Then they put the flame all the way high so it wouldn’t turn off my out food then started burning. We spend about $200 and didn’t eat half of the food because of how overwhelmed we was.

    First visit to Gyu-Kaku in Chicago and probably will not try it in NYC. It was fun but cooking takes to long for my taste or dinning experience Kevin service was ok nothing out of the way so felt even 15% was to high but was overruled by husband.

    I came in on a busy night. The experience would have been better if they didn’t forget to serve our food. It took about an hour for them to serve us the meat, not mentioning that I have to remind them of our missing dishes. They compensated with $10 discount at the end but we’d be able to spend more times outside rather than waiting for some dishes.

    Glad that the Guy-Kaku which is just a few minutes walk to our hotel was open during Thanksgiving. Great experiences dining there last night. Several people lining up to get seated but we made a reservation so my family just waited no more than 15 min for our table to be ready.

    Food was good—especially the skirt steak. Waitstaff might have been overwhelmed but we didn’t feel as though she was as helpful as we would have liked (our first time) and didn’t come back often to check on us, drinks, etc.

    Great litter date night spot. Not really kid friendly. It can be loud because of the grills and high ceilings. Fun environment and face paced. Plan on what you want to get before you go. We choose to do the meat lovers. Which was enough food but not leaving you over stuffed. This was our 1st time here so we didn't know how it worked or what to get. The menu has several prefix menus to choose from based on the number in your party. Or you can order everything as a separate. You cook all the meats and veggies you order. Not very much detail was given as how everything works but we figured it out. We will be back for sure.

    Wonderful. I love the experience, and the food was incredible. They even gave us edamame. The meat is all high quality. The spicy cucumbers are delicious (not super spicy). The kimchi is delicious without two much hear. I followed the directions for the broccoli and cheese, but the broccoli was still somewhat undercooked. I love the Miso soup.

    Service was awesome, great server - very attentive, explained everything very well and super friendly. The noise was high but it was busy. The location on Randolph is a little more quiet. The food was excellent, I wish they left the oil on the table to keep brushing the grill as meats were beginning to stick a bit but really that is not a complaint. Overall great dinner and my date and I enjoyed ourselves.
