We love this restaurant! I recommend making reservations especially on holidays. We went the day after valentine's and even with a reservation we had to wait 15-20min. The restaurant is worth it though. We have been to the Gyu-Kaku in US1 and the one in Brickell and we like the Brickell one better. We never have any complaints at the Brickell location. 5 stars all the way!

Repeat customers to this location and as usual, the service sucked. Happy hour menu is good but when they rush like crazy to clear the table it’s disappointing. Slow drink refills. Skipped dessert even though it was included. We weren’t able to claim Gyu-Kaku points for this dining experience either.
It seems that this location and the one in South Miami both have the same style of mismanagement.
Not sure if we’ll be back.

Edward Was And Amazing Server. The restaurant understood that we got stuck in traffic and we’re late for our reservations and still accommodated us. The restaurant even held are to go boxes until after our concert at the James L Knight Center ended. The restaurant made my mom’s birthday a night to remember. I will defiantly return

The service was behind because of large groups dining. Thus, our waiter couldn’t attend or serve us on a timely manner. We had to ask multiple times for our drinks, we were missing items from our menu. They should have more staff during that time period.

The food was so good!! Everything we had with the exception of the miso soup was delicious!! Had a great time despite the poorly working grill we had at our table. They offered to move us to another table half way through our dinner. We chose to stay and deal with the grill and still had a great dinner!!
