After 10+ visits to one of my favorite restaurants I was severely disappointed with the lack of service. Usually in a place where they excel on customer service we couldn't get a fork, a beer, the dishes cleaned up, even the check. Watched the Manager Christian more concerned on hitting on the female staff then doing any aspect of his job as a manager. Our waiter Chad (Manager trainee) could not be found most of the night. While the food was still supreme I will not be returning for awhile.

First time at this location. Turns out we were dining on the first day of their new menu. Love the happy hour specials.

It’s a fun experience where you can eat and drink as you go. We ordered small portions and kept them coming between talking and drinking. It was a fun date night.
On a side note we were celebrating our anniversary I noted that when I booked the table. They made no effort to seat us in a nice area nor did they do anything special. Every birthday gust got a song and desert but nothing for the couple that met here on a blind date 5 years ago.

We went to celebrate an early New Years Eve. Lots of energy, fun cuisine and great vibe. We had a super time (as always, we have been coming here for more than 10 years) and will be back again, soon. Thanks!

Always a fun time, the different marinades on the meat selection is very tasty, lots of fun for kids grilling their own food at the table.

Always a pleasure dining at Gyu Kaku. My girlfriend and I love coming in for their All Day Happy hours on Monday. It's such a great deal. I believe Henry was our server. He did a wonderful job taking care of us on refills and knowledgeable about the menu. I believe Jordan was our busser and he was on it as well. Great support staff. Thank you again!

The ambiance was cramped and the food didn’t smell good. They had sweet Potato Shochu which was exciting so I ordered it served exactly like in Japan; with hot water. The waiter brought me what looked like a tiny ice water. I said, sorry, no, I ordered it with hot water. He took it back and brought the same thing back a second time. It was bizarre. My 4 year old knows the difference between hot water and ice water. Then he said, that’s just how we serve it. Well, that’s NOT how I ordered it and it’d be simple to fix it. I’m sure the place didn’t run out of hot water. The food didn’t smell good. Between the incompetent service, the cramped ambiance and the bad smells, we told them we’re not interested and we left. Disappointing. I was looking forward to date night with the hubby all week. This place was a let down. Don’t bother.

My favorite Gyukaku location in OC. Always great happy hour deals, friendly service, and good food. If you reserve through Open Table you also get happy hour all night long!

All their meats are marinated so it is somewhat better than most Korean BBQ where they don’t marinate their meat except for a few dishes . But I m still not impressed with the quality and cut of meats.
Price is slightly higher than most all you can eat Korean BBQ but I like this place because I don’t have to stuff myself with all you can eat menu and rather only order what I want to eat

I called 3-4 times on different date to make my reservations, but this location (Huntington Beach) NEVER answer the phone.
So one time I ended up reserving Cerritos location instead, and this time used OpenTable.

The management should acknowledge and improve the customer service that the no one never answer the phone especially during night operations. This is not good!
