So much fun! Food was really great! We all had a lot of fun!
Absolutely delicious and fun! Definitely worth it to go with a large group of friends or a date. My firend and I ordered 5 plates a la carte, 3 appetizers, and one large hot house sake inclusive of the wagyu special and after tips was 108 dollars pp to give you an idea of cost.
My guest and I enjoyed our dinner cooking most of our own food. Service is prompt and friendly. I started with spicy beef ramen. Good sized portion and taste. We then cooked a variety of proteins and vegetables. I also ordered the cabbage but am not a fan. My guest got the steamed mushroom medley and was impressed.
👍😋always yummy & very fulfilling
Good fast food. Consistent with other locations. Food came out fast to cook at our table. Great menu selection and happy hour.
Great food and service!
I thought the food was very tasty. Enjoyed the offerings on the multi person set meal and we added shrimp and extra vegetables as well. The spicy tuna appetizer was tasty and a change with the deep fried rice but it was the least spicy tuna I have ever had. Still tasty though and a nice textural change.
My one drawback was that no one explained what each platter of raw meat was as they dropped it at the table and ran off. Just multiple plates of marinated meats that you had no idea which they were so if you wanted to order more of one kind specifically - good luck.
Great service and good food. My favorite neighborhood dining spot. Thanks for reopening this location!!
Horrible health violations
Always very enjoyable
This is an experience you cant miss especially if you haven’t had Korean Bbq. This place is perfect for a date or family gathering.
Kk was great. This location is the best one in nyc. They are the friendliest and they always give me the best experience. I come here once a week and I love it. Thanks guys!
It was very fun
Love the food and menu selection!
Great concept to share food in groups. The Happy Hour was great and the prices are fine. Waiters were very attentive.
We had repeated issues with the grill. Grill turned off 5-6 times. Rather than move our table or replace the meat they kept us at the table trying ro make the grill work. The constant failure of the grill made it difficult to enjoy the dinner. Issues occur but our biggest gripe was that in the end we felt like the imposition rather than the people who had their dining experience ruined. It was around the evening rush time but tables were still available so we couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t just move us. It’s unfortunate because we have dined on other occasions but nothing was like this experience. Maybe it was just an off day?
Amazing food and great service!
Daughter left her birthday present under the table, and even though they had just closed they met us at the door with it. Great staff!
good food, poor service, dingy restaurant, smelly bathroom
Food is delicious but the place looks a little dirty. The seats are not clean. I have to wipe it before seating. The server does not come back to check on you. They have to do a better job next time.
Great experience! From Indianapolis and wanted to experience Korean bbq as I have in Toronto and it was an amazing experience. My server was great, she was attentive and I can’t wait to come back.
The service is surprisingly poor. We walk in with a baby and no booster is offered until we asked for 2nd time. They forgot to give us sauces too. It's hot too feels like their ac isn't turned on. Likely won't come back again
Gyu-Kaku is absolutely my favorite restaurant. I've been coming to this specific location since introduced about ten years ago and I always search to see if they have locations in the cities I'm visiting. I bring all my friends and family here if they haven't been yet and that's because of the price, the deliciousness of the food and the experience of cooking your own meal. Once you go you understand exactly why people fall in love. And it's definitely worth it to sign up for their rewards program, it's probably the only rewards program where I've ever redeemed what I've earned. It's great for first dates, lunches, or just small gatherings.
Wish the bathrooms were cleaner and maintained better, but food and service is consistently excellent
Good was great and it was a pretty good deal. Each person paid about $30 each. I really appreciate that when they brought us the food, they let us know the cook time.
Experience was great. I like my meat very rare and here was a chance to get it EXACTLY right. Service was a bit slow--they could have used more waitpersons.
Price was reasonable for what you get. Good sake.
Service level was not consistent with other locations.
Great food and service. Definitely recommend!!
My friends and I love this place. The drinks are phenomenal and their happy hour is amazing.
We started off with some really delicious vodka peach cosmos and then had spring rolls and chili Asian wings. We also ordered filet mignon that we cooked ourselves so it was pretty cool. I think my favorite were the wings!
My kids love this place and it’s clearly very popular. I leave every time thinking how dirty it is.
Had the bbq for 4. Tasted delicious. Service was fast and efficient. Food comes out fast and empty dishes are removed quickly so bbq at your own pace so you don’t feel rushed. Place could use an upgrade in decor. Smores at the end were great.
Food always good & Friendly & attentive staff Nothing more to add except they didn’t have our favorite dish since it was a seasonal item But that will not stop us from going back TY
No soap in the restroom.
Great food! Just very hot towards the back and the noise volume is loud but you are still able to hear each other
Great! Food is delicious. Friendly service. Definitely recommended.
Love this restaurant! Food and service are always amazing. (The bathrooms could be cleaner.)
Great food and great service, as always! Love it here!
Had a great time and cool experience. Friendly staff!
My wife and I usually go for the meat lovers deal and this time they had the waygu beef deal and it sealed the deal! We got some garlic rice with some pork belly and kobe and it was perfectly made and delicious and had a nice cozy spot to ourselves. We had an amazing night.
