    They increased the prices for the lunch menu - the quality of the meat is not as good as before, but is still a good lunch meal!

    Gyu Gakyu delivers excellently prepped, high-quality dishes and BBQ ingredients for customer grilling, in a comfortable and attractive setting. The grilling process is seamless and fun, smoke is kept to a minimum, and the savory results keep diners coming back for more.

    The host sat us (a party of 4) at a table for 2 and the proceeding to repeat (4x) the maximum seat time was an hour and 15 minutes. When we asked for a bigger table, the staff told us no because a reservation of six will be there shortly….that party of six was three men. Hmmm.

    As a frequent guest of Gyu-Kaku, as pretty as this location is with the atrium the vibe is much different than the 44th Street location. I don't know if they were short staffed last night but it just seemed to be that service was not as important and that they felt like they were going to make money no matter what because the food. The girls at the front desk seemed disinterested, and the waitress just seemed overworked and weeded. Will always come back to the franchise but probably not this location.

    Cooking small pieces of food on the grill in the middle of the table can be fun when there are only 2 guests. Otherwise, you battle for grill space. As this is Asian cuisine, rice noodles should be on the menu. We waited far too long for our brown rice to arrive.

    The service is attentive and they make wonderful recommendations. My kids love the experience and the s’mores for dessert. The food is flavorful and lots of options to choose from. Our favorites were the secret pot flank steak that they grilled for us on our table and cut into pieces, beef sukiyaki bimbibap and shrimp ají. A good alternative to Korean BBQ in a more convenient and less crowded location.

    When we were seated they said we have 90 minutes to eat and leave which would be fine but it took 20 minutes to get any service then while still eating dessert they said our time is up and we have to leave. It felt upsetting to spend so much money and feel so aggressively rushed.

    My guest and I came here for my boyfriends birthday. He specifically told me, “babe I wanna go to the Resturant where I grill my own food!” Lol. I immediately knew to take him here. When we arrived our reservation for a party of 6 was for 7:30pm. We were seated pretty late because the establishment was busy that day but aside from that the service was great! Our waiter responded very quickly to our needs & when it was time to bring out the birthday cake it was exactly how I asked. Overall, good spot to come to for sure!
