    We went to Gyu Kaku for my son’s 14th birthday. The food was great and it was so much fun! Service was excellent. It was the perfect place for this occasion.

    One of the cuts of meat was very tough and not enjoyable. I told one of the servers and she didn’t say or do anything. Not even a suggestion. Like she shrugged it off. I’ve been her many times over the last few years, I was disappointed.

    This was my first time dining in at Gyu Kaku. The door staff was receptive and welcoming. I loved the ambiance of the restaurant and we were the only table in our section. Our server, Arturo seemed like he was on the back end of a long day at the restaurant and I get it! He went on to explain the menu and how the food is coursed. Straight to the point no frills type of service. If I was a tourist, I probably would of felt a little rushed to close out the night. Stella Artois are $7/bottle. Arturo also swapped our grill top for a cleaner, less burnt one. The apps were phenomenal. Soups, salads etc. Proteins were seasoned well. The idea of cooking dinner table side is engaging and fun. I will be back to try the meat lovers option.

    It was our first time there, so the menu was a bit overwhelming. We ordered the 'feast' for 4 which was good but probably too much food for us. Everything was very tasty, though it sometimes felt like the food was coming out too quickly (particularly given the large quantity of it). The staff was very friendly and the booths were cozy. It was definitely fun to do the grilling and the s'mores were a great way to end the meal!

    First time dining at any of the Guy-Kaku locations. We were dining on the UWS. Our table was nice. Clean. Service was very attentive and friendly. Also very quick. Almost so quick that it felt a little rushed (not by our server but by others so maybe it’s just the staff being super quick to take the plates as we emptied them with the ingredients to the grill). Prob better that they are quick rather than too slow. Quality of beef was very good. My family loved the beef fried rice. My family of four (2 girls <14yrs old and two adults) had the prime combo for two and added appetizers: shosito peppers and steamed dumplings with crunchy red pepper flake sauce. It was plenty for us. The appetizers were perfectly prepared and flavorful. We don’t have huge appetites so probably for the average family of 4 this won’t be quite enough for 4 people since my husband and I eat less than “typical adults”. But I think for 2 this would have been way too much food. Dessert was mochi. My family said it was good. They loved the green tea mochi. The others were standard—vanilla, salted caramel, and strawberry. You get one of each flavor in the order of 4 pieces. Nice little place on UWS for an easy family outing.

    Food was excellent. For the amount you pay for it is a lot when you have to cook the food yourself. That’s the only issue I have with this restaurant.

    Nice and cozy place. But very quiet and a little different from the other ones around town. But definitely worth a try, specially because the area around the restaurant is cleaner than the one at Times Square.
