Gyu-Kaku - New York, NY | East Village
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.
Great food! Great atmosphere! Will come again! 10/10
Everything was fine. Food was good, service wasn’t bad.
Good overall. Service was good but a couple of items were mis ordered which they fixed right away. Good experience overall.
Michael was amazing! Had a great time with my friends on a Wednesday night.
I really enjoyed the atmosphere and spacious eating space . The waiters were very attentive and kind to all patrons . It was my birthday that day and I plan on visiting again sometime in the future !
This place is not that clean. The table is pretty
My boyfriend and I frequently eat at the midtown locations but picked this one since it was closer to my sister's hotel downtown. Maybe it was just an awkward time right between the afternoon happy hour and dinner but service was lackluster compared to the other locations. The food was great as always, could just use a little more attentiveness to grill changes, plate needs, clearing empty dishes etc.
I had done a reservation for 8:30pm and when we got to our table there were to glasses of water already on the table that appeared to had been there for a while. One with no ice and the other with the ice already almost gone (from melting) when we asked the host why the glasses of water appeared that way she said they had set up the water 15-20 minutes before we got there. I don’t know about other customers, but I would have preferred the water be served to me when I got there or in front of me. Unless someone had made a special request before hand about wanting their drinks permade. Our chopsticks were also already out of their packaging. Which again makes me worried about how clean or sanitary this is.
On the bright side our waitress did save the whole experience for me as she did her best to be attentive despite how busy she was. So I really appreciate her. Otherwise that location as a whole needs to do a bit better. Their need to pre prepare was a bit too much for me and could have done with the prepoured water and unwrapped chopsticks.
This was a fun experience for a group dinner
The food was great, as the company! Able to use coupon and points. Everyone enjoyed themselves!
Moon was an amazing waitress, she helped make our experience a great one
Excellent service and food!
Yes, I would recommend this lovely place to all of my friends.
AmaZing. New favorite spot. We got the meal lovers for $65 and couldn’t believe the value, the quality, freshness. This place is doing it right.
First time there and definitely not the last!! Food was great, and we had an amazing time!
Dope time! Perfect for large groups! I plan to return very soon!
All meats are too much marinated with sugar.
Less sweet is better.
The food was good for the price and the service was really good
The waiter was really cute and sweet. Food was amazing as always.
Great food and experience. Compared to other locations in the country and international, significantly more expensive. Probably due to location costs but still a costly meal.
Fun experience. The staff is nice, pleasant and very attentive. Food was delicious
Grand kids had so much fun cooking their food.
It was a solid experience. I have gone there multiple times and it is always well done
Great service and really good food, however it is very loud there.
Graduation party of 5 graduates!
Amazing place for a group. Happy hour menu is always a great choice. Drinks are my fave part of it!
Nice comfortable seating for 2. It was a Friday night so the severs were busy but overall, food was great!
First time at Gyu Kaku and the service was excellent - came around very frequently to change the cooking grill and fill our waters. The food was great quality and delicious. We missed happy hour but during happy hour, drinks and certain dishes have a discount so you get the best bang for the buck. Very impressed with this location!
I love this dang place!!
Great experience at Gyu-Kaku (East Village). We bypassed the pre fixe and order a la cart due to dietary preferences. All the meats were FANTASTIC, and we went with the marinade selection recommended by our server. Would skip the steamed veggies, and the shrimp was fine (a nice break between meats). Pass on the chili dumplings, but go for the crispy rice with tuna. Drink prices are reasonable, and cheap during Happy Hour. Lots of fun for a dinner with friends!
My experience is always great whenever I go to Gyu Kaku. Haven't been disappointed yet and hope to never be
Had a great dinner with my girlfriend, would’ve preferred a more quiet seat or booth which we requested & noticed they had a few available but overall great food & waitress.
It was our first time there & it was the best experience I can ask for. Our first waitress explained everything there is to know, but my favorite was by far our second waitress. She was so sweet & made my experience there better. I wish I got her name but I’ll definitely come back again. Food & drinks were great (definitely recommend the Japanese fried chicken). We ordered a la carte since we don’t really like miso soup & didn’t want a salad & the price was still reasonable, portions were great too definitely left very very fulllllllll.
Wait was very long, the reservation system is flawed. Noise level was pretty high and ambience is generally on the louder side. Food portions are not the most generous but will get you full.
Quality food, great price. However, the server is too quick to remove food from table.
Good place for a group to barbecue. They have barbecue for groups and just two. Great place just for a cool group of people
Food was delicious, but the spacing in the front is really close to other tables and you can hear everyone's conversations because they are basically sitting right next to you.
But the service was impressive. Our waiter was very attentive and the food, delicious. Definitely would go again and try to sit in the back because the pork belly and short ribs were amazing and worth going back over and over again.
Last time I'll be at this restaurant.
Great server and great happy hour prices on food and drinks. Big yes!
