Some people don’t like the fact that you have to “cook your food” but that’s part of the experience. You don’t have to wait long for the food and the meat comes marinated. The other food they make is amazing. They have a lot of happy hour specials and the service is great. I 100% recommend, I love this place.

I came to this restaurant because we were celebrating 2 birthdays and they wanted to go to a japanese steak house.
We were greeted and seated and everyone was pleasant. The table We were sat at was disgusting, sticky and I wiped the table off with a napkin that turned black! I was horrified
The waitress And staff were very hard to understand
I had no idea what she was saying when she was explaining the menu and They were not Japanese.
The experience was fun but I would never come back to this brickell location.

This my second time here but my first lunch. And both dinner and lunch were excellent. Servers are attentive , food is fast and delicious, price is affordable, great view (downtown Miami) , clean establishment. Everything you would want in a restaurant. They have this pre fixe menu for or four people and that’s what we choose. Pre fix comes with soup and salad about 5 meats to grill two sides of rice and a dessert.. Great deal.

Generally satisfied. However, employees with leftovers and trash bins passed by our seats many times and were not feeling well. I want you to consider customers who are eating a little more.

I was really looking forward to the Korean BBQ experience. I read all the reviews so we picked this place based on the reviews. Being our first time, we chose the Meat Lovers special from the menu. The server did not make any suggestions for us for add ons like vegetables so we neglected to order any on the side. I would have loved suggestions because we saw other tables have roasted corn, broccoli and other vegetables. Of all the meats served to us, one was very tough and we could not eat it. It was fun cooking the meats on the grill but I will not return.

We usually love it here but this last time was a disaster. Not only did it take forever when we were one of the only tables in the restaurant, but as our waitress was walking towards our table, she chose to pick food out of her teeth while looking in a compact that she quickly hid in her apron as she approached our table. Not a great experience this time around.

Just as good as the first time I had this in NY. The meat was delicious, the seafood was delicious, the waitress was very kind and helped with the menu and grill. The smores were the icing on the cake. Definitely need to explore other Gyu-Kaku locations since the excellent quality and experience seem to be the same throughout!

I went on a date here last weekend and had a lot of fun!! The only thing that bothered me though was that the person that served the garlic fried rice failed to let me know that the bowl was extremely hot, which he should have done. The funny thing is that my waitress made sure to tell us that the fire was hot (which is obvious lol), but this guy just mixed the egg into the rice without saying a word about how hot the bowl was. I ended up burning my hand really badly trying to bring the bowl closer, since he put it somewhere very difficult to reach. Thankfully a kind waiter made up for that horrid experience by bringing me ice water and aloe vera gel for my burns. The delicious food also made up for it. Highly recommend this place and definitely will be returning. If you decide to order the garlic fried rice and the person making it doesn’t tell you that the bowl is hot, just know that it is and avoid a bad experience:)

This place is one of a kind and goes the extra mile for gluten allergy. Their happy hour means you can enjoy their food at great prices in the middle of the day or late at night.

Delightfully unique concept of being able to barbeque your own meats right at your table.
The sides we had, fried rice and bibimbap were superb. Tommie, the manager, should give lessons to other restaurant's managers. He was on top of everything.

Took my boyfriend’s family here for the first time and they were incredibly impressed by the experience and food. First of all, the food was absolutely amazing. We ordered the Samurai for the three of us. There was so much food but we are champion eaters and we ate everything. The meats were seasoned so well and so delicious. My boyfriend’s father could not stop raving about the gas grill and the ventilation system. We had a fun time grilling our food and connecting over this communal-like experience. The service was top-notch. We will definitely come back!

My husband and I have been to Gyu-Kaku-Miami/Brickell several times and each time bring new customers with us. All of our friends have absolutely loved it as we do as well!!
The manager at the Brickell location is absolutely outstanding and is such a great example of how a restaurant should be run. The last two times we were there, he came over to our table and asked if everything was good and what could he do to make it even better. He was so warm and friendly and made us feel very special which made our dining experience even more pleasurable! This last time he came by our table and recognized us from when we were there last which really impressed us! He is outstanding and should be recognized for his devotion to his workplace. I hope everyone tries Gyu-Kaku and enjoys it as much as we did!!! Looking forward to the next visit!!
