On Saturday afternoon the service was too slow if at all.
Burner grid was never replaced.
Some items we orderen never arrived but appeared in the bill.
Removed without questions, but if you check.
We still like it, but strongly suggest service to be seriously improved during busy hours.

Always great food and service. Only advice is to not seat to the immediate left of the hostess. The vents are not great and the air vents make it uncomfortable. The smoke sticks around and the fire stays to one side making it hard to cook. The front and far back are perfect. Always have a great time.

Great food, but customer service is horrible. Firstly, the hostess was rude on the day of our visit. Then our waiter seemed really nice in the beginning, but then he when it was time for us to order, he was rushing us and then pretty much shrugged when we asked any question and didn’t care about anything

its good to have more dining options, place is a bit outdated and tables looks worn out but service was impeccable and manager came after to make sure everything was ok
I don't think I will return but I am happy I dine there.

We had a great experience. We did the all you can eat. They keep the food coming so you aren’t waiting around, which we worried about initially. We really enjoyed the experience of cooking at the table. It was a unique experience for us.

I used to come here a lot. Since I have my baby about 2 years ago, I haven't really come back. Last time I was there maybe a year ago or so. I came with my friend who's her first time in Gyu-kaku. We came with 2 toddlers and mine was sleeping the stroller. We we're at the door, the hostess was sitting down, she saw us struggling with the door as my friend was holding her 2 y.o toddler in 1 hand and trying to hold the door open for my stroller. She didn't even blink her eyes nor stand up trying to help us. She just sat there until we got in front of her.
We got sat on the left side of the restaurant. After couple mins being ignored, a guy finally came and introduced himself as not our server, apparently our server are on break and he's helping out taking our order. No big deal. We ordered, the food came. I always order tuna volcano and sukiyaki bibimbap everytime I'm here on top of the grilled items. Now.. tuna volcano portion are now half the size it used to and the bibimbap doesn't have the eggs anymore plus they didn't asked if we like the spicy gokuchang before mixing it. They simply do not offer it anymore. After that the server is like M.I.A. It takes forever to asked for our check. The bathroom are disaster and dirty.
I feel so embarrassed because I raved about this restaurant to my friend and practically took her here. This is the 1st time this restaurant disappoint me though. I took many of my friends here and they always loved it. I don't know what happened. Server wise I can understand maybe they're understaffed and the server is jumping around between the main dining area to our area but the hostess behavior, the bathroom cleanliness and the food quality are not acceptable.

Love coming here! The food is great! You pick the meats you want and they have some sauces at the table if you want more flavor, then you grill your own meet but it's perfect for a date. It always makes us happy leaving Here!
