Gyu-Kaku is absolutely fantastic! If you have a bunch of time and love to cook right on the table, then this place is for you! We went for Mother's Day and had the best time. The food is fabulous, plentiful and very filling. Our server was wonderful and he helped make our dining experience great! We can't wait to go back! We have been to Gyu-Kaku in New York and had the same great experience.
My only suggestion would be not to have our points expire. That was very frustrating!
All in all we loved it there and can't wait to go back with our fun friends as I know they will love it as much as we did.

I love Korean BBQ. It is one of my favorite types of food to try. Gyu-Kaku has a fantastic menu designed to give it's visitors a variety of flavors and things to try. What I also really appreciated was how accommodating the staff was to our two little girls who were feeling very excited in the restaurant. Our server was very patient with us, and made some good recommendations she thought our little girls would like. She was also patient with us taking away plates and making sure the table was clear so that we did not have too much going on.

This gave my partner and I the chance to enjoy the food and still remain engaged with our little ones. Truly appreciate the food, and the service! We will definitely be returning to dine here and continue trying the other options available.

It could have been a four star experience but the service was excruciatingly slow. My lychee lemonade drink came way after the appetizers and at the same time as the first course of meat (chicken and harami steak - the latter was my fave, perfectly marinated and juicy). When we ordered white rice after the first course, that came way after we got the third round of dishes (which included the sukiyaki bibimbap which was also delicious). The mushrooms (although sweet and fresh) were a bit difficult to cook - the foil had holes so the butter seeped right into the grill. Some of dishes were misses - the filet mignon was cut too thick and difficult to cook (either overcooked or really undercooked) and bland (I think it was supposed to be lightly salted and peppered).

The food was great I have been to many gyu-Kaku locations, I had the worst service at the brickell location for my birthday, the server had the worst attitude for no particular reason, I was very disappointed especially since it was my birthday. Orlando location had the best service.

🤢🤢🤢THE WORST RESTAURANT IN MIAMI🤢🤢🤢
and that includes any McDonald's, I made a reservation 2 weeks before and the day that I went it was literally empty because it was a Tuesday (04/09) and it was pouring rain, I got there 15 minutes before my reservation and the hostess told us we had to wait because there were other reservations even though it was literally empty but we understood until some people came in with NO RESERVATION and she sat them down immediately, when she came back one of my friends talked to her and she told him that we had to wait (just like that and with a lot of attitude) then she just left and came back 5 minutes later and took us to our table, when we got there the table was disgusting it was dirty and sticky, besides that my 67 year old friend was uncomfortable so we asked the waiter if we could change tables so he went to ask the hostess, SURPRISE she said we couldn't because ALL the other tables were reserved so my friend asked him -when people make reservations do they pick the table from advance? and ofcourse the waiter said NO, I felt bad for him I could notice that he was embarrassed but that was what the hostess told him (his exact words) so ofcourse we left.
😡😡I DON'T RECOMEND THIS PLACE😡😡
specially when this is Miami where new and better restaurants open every day, for a similar option you can just go to a Benihana it has an amazing service and you get a personal chef that makes the food on your table

Vibrant scene and yummy food. Great place for celebrations. What would help is if the staff recognized birthdays/anniversaries, but understand if that's not standard practice. I just sang HBD to my hubby while we roasted our marshmallows for our smores which was fun :)

This restaurant belongs to a chain and is fairly typical for a Japanese BBQ establishment. That being said, the food quality is always excellent and the prices during happy hour are an amazing deal. My only complaint would be about the employees. I've been here several times and the staff are always helpful but seem hurried, almost as if it's a bother to ask them for something. Not sure if that's just part of the experience or if I go on busy days.

Food was great, concept was great. I was caught in a server shift change and second server was not great at all. To top it an 18% gratuity was added to the bill under a party of more than 6 but it was just two of us. I asked the server why and she told me because it was a holiday so I asked what holiday is there on March 29 she had no answer.

I've been to Gyu-Kaku in New York (different locations) and this location is not the same. The decor and set up was very similar. Initially seated us by the front window next to family with baby and stroller that was in the way. Area was not the cleanest. We were moved to a better booth. Our server was okay, in the beginning I felt she didn't come around enough but her check in increased towards the end of the meal. I found the Yakishabu a bit more fatty here. The presentation of the rice was underwhelming and it took at least 10 minutes for the last of 3 rice/noodles dishes to come out. I would recommend coming during Happy Hour, you get a lot of good food for reasonable prices. I would say locals should give it a try.

¡Increíble! Además de la excelente atención y calidad del personal, la experiencia es altamente recomendable. Cocinas tu propia bbq en la mesa, el timing con el que te van sirviendo las diferentes variedades de carnes (vaca-pollo-toro) y otras opciones como mushrooms, arroz con verduras, ensalada de kale-pepino-tomate, y variedad de salsas de soja, agridulces y picantes, es todo un éxito.
Te sirven agua helada cada 10minutos, gratis. Ideal para enjuagar la boca antes de cada nuevo plato.

VERY TIME AT THIS RESTAURANT. MY DAUGHTER TOLD ME ABOUT THIS RESTAURANT. I HAD TO TRY IT FOR MYSELF. RESTAURANT WAS VERY NICE. MADE RESERVATIONS BUT THEY COULD NOT FIND MY RESERVATIONS. FOOD WAS VERY GOOD BUT SERVICE WAS SLIGHTLY POOR. HAD TO KEEP CALLING WAITRESS OVER. SHE WOULD COME AND LEAVE AND FORGET TO COME BACK WITH THE ITEM THAT WE ASKED HER ABOUT IN THE BEGINNING.
