The food is ok but I don’t think it’s worth waiting for that long. And also maybe they’re too busy so get prepared for that they may forget your food and can’t wait to take your plates away.

I set up a reservation at 8. I was late due to downtown traffic but i called ahead. Unfortunately we weren’t seated after 45mins of arriving. Food was phenomenal. Our server was very inform and when we would ask questions she had the answers. Overall would go again soon but the wait was relatively unbearable.

I have been to the restaurant many times and this visit was a miss... they always ask me if I have the app on my phone, offer different deals- none of that happened. I rave about this place and brought a friend so with poor service was a little embarrassed!

Great service
Fresh food
Fun to cook at the table for barbecue
Difficult noise level unless you sit in a booth with high “walls”.

Go for the lunch special- great value

Was very very hot upstairs. Almost hot enough to wait to eat downstairs. We powered through an all you can eat which was well worth the heat. Ice cream smores at the end was a nice touch. Left full.

food is consistently good! it has something for everyone. I love the jjigae kimchi soup. It's spicy, and the perfect thing after a few heavy meat plates! The tuna volcano appetizer is a winner with whoever we invite with us too.

Always great option to do the "Shogun" pre-fixe for 6 and is a great value at $180! You get an amazing sampling of all the meats, and we love cooking the food just before we eat it. Pairs so well with ample sake!

Always love coming to this restaurant. The meats are nicely seasoned and ready for you to toss on the grill. I personally love the fact that I am grilling the meals myself. My wife, who is a vegan also had good choices to grill as well

The food was just at the average. Some meat was too salty. The service was bad. The waiter even mixed up my order.

A reservation was made for a 9:15pm, we were called at 9:17 and bought up to the 3rd floor for seating. We placed the ultimate all you can eat order for two at 9:22pm and our appetizers arrived at 9:42pm. We were told when we ordered that we had to finish our food in 90 minutes. We ordered a avocado salad, shrimp shumai, and pork belly chips. During this first 20 minutes we just sat and talked, and no food was on our table. At 30 minutes our server asked us if we wanted drinks and cleared our table of our appetizers plates. Our 8 dishes of meat finally arrived at 10:03pm. We once again had to sit 15 minutes with no food on table. We got our first grill changed at 10:23pm. We ordered our 2nd round of food at 1026 and it arrived at 10:36. If they cant take care of a tables that are sat next to 2 big parties than maybe they shouldn't sit anyone next to them. Our food arrived at a reasonable time after the parties left, but my that time we didn't even want our food anymore.

シカゴ店ですが、お客様が入店するとアメリカン店員さんがいらっしゃいませ!と言ってくれ、また帰るときはお客様がお帰りですと言ってくれるのが日本人の私は嬉しく感じました。よく訓練されている感じです。Happy hourの時に行かれたのでメニューが少しだけ安くなっていてお得感がありました。肉はやはりアメリカ牛のため和牛には劣りますが牛カルビはおいしかったです。初めてだったためアラカルトで頼みましたが$39からの食べ放題の方が結果的に安く上がるようです。気になったのが、オシボリを食事が終わってから持ってきてそれは意味ないため、食事の前に持ってきてほしいです。

They didn’t seat us for 30 min past reservation time and forgot items we ordered so I had to remind/keep track for them. I didn’t even have them bring certain things because it got so late and made them take it off my cost.

A significant descending quality of the meat. I have been with the Gyu for many years from the east coast to mid-west, this time I was disappointed with the food ( especially beef tonghe)
