Guy Kaku daytime happy hour is one of the values in town. Love coming here for lunch. Make a reservation because they are always weird about that even if the place is empty

The meat that comes from Gyu-kaku is what I would expect from when I go to a Gyu-kaku in Japan (minus some types of meat not served in the US). That said, the quality is good and the price I think is decent as well. Our server, Valerie, was attentive even though she served few other tables near us!$

Amazing time! We were immediately seated and loved every part of the meal! We were nervous about the set course but after trying more new food, we found more dishes to order the next time we come back!! Handing out roses on valentine's was a sweet touch as well!!

I would not recommend coming here at 11:30am when they first open. They are not prepped or prepared on time. We waited 30 minutes for our first meat dish to be brought out and it was still frozen and stuck together. Serving a frozen blob of meat is unacceptable for a Japanese BBQ restaurant. One of the meat options was also unavailable because they were waiting on a shipment. Waiting on a shipment or waiting for the frozen meat to thaw?? Who knows.

Made a reservation and was seated promptly upon arrival. We came for a late Sunday lunch and had the happy hour prices. The happy hour set for 2 people + a few more plates was the perfect amount for a filling lunch. It's fun to cook your own food, and the servers were attentive to water and switching the grill.

My fiance and I went here on a Saturday night for date night/early Valentine's Day dinner and I was very surprised at how calm, cool, and collected all the employee's seemed. I ordered my garlic noodles wrong & our server (I didn't get her name) was so awesome and fixed them for me. I can't wait to go back and indulge again.

BBQ your food at your table.... a very good selection of beef, chicken, prawns or pork for you to cook as you like it. A venting system under the table keeps the smoke at a minimum.
A very enjoyable experience.

They did not have their usually daily lunch special because it was the holiday season and they want people to pay $30 per person instead of $12. That's not nice or fair.

As usual, everything was wonderful from start to finish.
My friend and I split the meat lovers combo meal. It comes with a ton of meats, a chicken and a shrimp order for you to bbq, as well as a salad, karage, miso soup, rice, and edamame. Everything was delicious.

We were seated within minutes of our reservation and the waiter was over quickly to take our orders, which was great. They were also very attentive during the meal, which was nice when we wanted refills etc... All in all, I couldn’t recommend this place more. It’s a fun, chilled out meal and it’s all for a really fair price. (Definitely sign up for their points plan too!)

*You’ll definitely want to make a reservation to eat here, otherwise be prepared for a long wait.
