Gyu-Kaku - East Village Ratings and Reviews
I have been going here for years, but their new management is terrible! They did not honor our reservation (we had to wait 40 min) and it was so crowded in the waiting area that we were constantly being pushed. Once we were finally seated, we were served MOLDY food twice! Their excuse the second time was that “all of it is like that”. They have also changed the menu and raised prices. When I complained to various employees throughout the night, they all encouraged me to write an email to their new management because even they were unhappy. STAY AWAY!
Good food and friendly ambiance (there were multiple birthday parties thrown here), but our grill was faulty and hot oil constantly splattered towards us. It actually got on my face TWICE, and I was trying to call the server to do something but they were hard to reach. It’s a legitimate safety hazard and they should check the grill to make sure this doesn’t happen again.
This was such an amazing experience, I came here for my anniversary with my boyfriend and it took a bit of convincing to get him to go but it was worth it! We did make a reservation and we did have to wait for our table for about 15-20minutes but the experience was worth the wait! It is a noisy place but it is still romantic and personal. I definitely recommend coming here for special occasions or just to have dinner the food is amazing!!!
We arrived at 8pm on Saturday evening. We had to wait only a short tim despite the businessmen of the restaurant. The menu is geared for everyone. You can choose a little or a lot. Great for sharing! Quality of the food was terrific. Th service was spot on. All in all a fun time.
Just so happened to stumble upon this gem on a trip to New York.
Was a great experience, great atmosphere and the food was amazing.
I have already gone back since then and the best service.
Awesome place for a date, special occasion or just a nice location to grab a drink.
My new favorite spot.
I have visited this restaurant in different states. The beef was especially salty for my dinner. It had never happened before, so I had to drink a whole lotta water. Also it was COLD!! Idk if it's the AC or whatsoever.. The dessert was good. The service was good. Just a little disappointed since the beef didn't taste as good as it was
This is the first review I've ever done! THE PLACE WAS AMAZING! I went on a date, and I didn't know what to expect after reading mixed review. GUYS! IT WAS GREAT! the staff was very friendly, no one rushed us, everything was explained to us! Such a great date-night idea! please go and try it yourself!
Gyu-kaku is always a great idea. I love their Happy Hour deals and their lunch deals are even better. They have a great variety of options to choose from. The staff and service has been superb lately. I have been to gyu-kaku for about 7 years already, I highly recommend it.
We would definitely go here again. Met up with some friends for drinks and had a semi date night after also grabbing a table for 2. The atmosphere was nice. The service was good. The meat/poultry/fish was very well seasoned. The steak will melt in your mouth.We had the Fuji for 2 people,which came with a variety. Portions are small but very filling. Overall experience was good.
