Gyu-Kaku - Cupertino, CA
Traditionally called Yakiniku, this Japanese barbecue spot is known for their delicious, fresh (never frozen), high-quality meats!
Enjoy an ice cold beer as you grill your own meat. Happy Hours offer the best deals on food and drinks, so be sure to wind down and get the night started right with us.
Went for my wife’s birthday on a Saturday night. Good thing we used Opentable. Wait for walk-ins was 45 min. Waitstaff was very friendly and explained the menu since it’s our first time there. Food came out quickly and was all good.
Great and fun place. Great quality of meats. We ordered Samurai set as boys where hungry and that was enough food for everyone.
Really enjoyed the experience.
The food was great but our server could’ve smiled a little bit once.
The waiting time for seating is more than 15 min at around 2:30 pm. The “new” host was busy working on removing the divider of a table for the group of customers he has just seated and seemed forget our existence.
Date night always starts with this place
good bbq the food quality is very good. I will say it is authentic Japanese style bbq
We love coming here. It is alway a great experience. The meat has really good flavor and the veggies are always good quality.
Gyu Kaku has the best quality Japanese bbq in our opinion. Janellah was our server multiple times and every time, she provided excellent service. Highly recommended this place! Our favorite is the kalbi chuck rib and the poke nachos :)
Not sure how this place got such a high rating. Food was okay but otherwise this place is very cheesy. Not very clean either. Service was indifferent. We will not go back
Got our order wrong
This is a great place to go with a larger group of people, but it can be quite noisy. It is easy to order too much food, but that can be a plus (in certain situations).
I think it's not a great place for a date. The tables are wide, so you'll be seated far away from the other person. The noisy atmosphere makes a conversation more difficult.
We eat here a few times a month and really like it. The service is generally pretty good. Good servers will check back for more plates, take away old plates (tables get crowded), refill water, and change grills. Occasionally a server is less attentive and it makes dining a little more inconvenient, but for the most part I think everyone is pretty good. The food is good, the portions are good, and I like that there are options for non meat eaters in the group. I also don’t feel like I smell horrible when I leave here as with some other bbq restaurants.
Was really good, haven’t been out with my girl for a while now and this place was a great start
Service and food was great!!
Fantastic food and service!
Birthday. Great fun and entertaining cooking and sharing delicious food with family
Overall food is good, but the price is not cheap. Beef tongue was not as good as before. A few pieces are unchewable.
Love this place. Great service and quality meats!
Everything was perfect and the food was delicious! I will definitely be back!
It looks like the place is very popular. Line to get into the place, lots of locals, good food. It was a bit overcrowded, that’s when the service wasn’t perfect but food was quite nice
We got the meat lovers combo for two and it was definitely a great value for the price, although a bit too much meat for my husband and I. We wish there were more veggies and sides so maybe we should have gotten the other combo instead. The chicken karage was soo tender, and all six beef options for the grill were very yummy. Service could have been more friendly but they got us what we needed in a timely manner so I can’t complain too much. The place does feel kind of chaotic to me, and personally the cleanliness of the floors could be better. Overall a good experience though, and I would go back again.
A great place to have dinner. Staff was friendly and attentive. Will definitely come back in the future.
the food and service here are always great :)
Very good service and nice lunch menu.
Maybe have to wait if one arrives after 12 noon during the weekday lunch time.
The food was good. Definitely go for happy hour, great value with great price. The service was super great, she explained for us everything and gave us good advices.
We went to lunch time. The food is delicious especially the beef and the Bibimbap.
Delicious! Went for a birthday meal. It’s great that it’s per plate and not per person, so the non meat eaters didn’t feel ripped off. Lots of variety.
It was delicious. They even listened to my instructions of a secluded space in the restaurant for my date and I.
Everything is good except the girl at the front desk (who checked us in) is very mean
Love this place, great service from attentive caring staff. Food is nicely seasoned and fun to grill at your table.
Dinner was really good, tables were not big enough for 5 people and the food though. Waitress was not very good at keeping up with drinks and food, but I have been here other times where other waiters and waitress were excellent. Food is always amazing!
It was lit #munchiegang
My server Choi was great, the food was great, and the follow-ups from other employees were great!
Will come back for sure on my next trip!
It's a big chain always crowded.
Good cost benefit
Not many alternatives nearby.
Super fun night out with our 9 y/o son to celebrate his adoption date. If we were local we’d go more than once/year.
The experience here was very different and slightly disappointing this time around. Our grill was turned on way too high and when we put meat on the grill it all burned too fast and we had to eat some burnt pieces. We turned it down quickly but we assumed it would have been turned on to a good temp not something that would ruin our food. Also, when we were done, we had only been sitting there about 10 mins past having paid our bill when the manager came over and rudely stated that he had other reservations that would want this table so we needed to leave soon. We quickly left and aren’t too eager to return anytime soon.
Our server is really rude and it’s very noisy. I won’t recommend this place.
I loved the waiter's detailed explanation of the menu items to my party. I liked how fresh the dishes all tasted. I want to go back and try out the other dishes now!
The waitress was very friendly and responsive. The food was great. Unfortunately, the bowl used to serve food has a big piece chipped away.
