    Have had a good experience with this restaurant group previously, but this visit was sub par. Our cooking plate was not switched out at all and when the bill came it was almost twice as much as it should have been. Had to get up and talk to the server to get it fixed.

    Called ahead to ensure there was an elevator because it's on the 2nd floor and I was coming with two disabled people. The atrium next door where the elevator is, was locked. The hostesses snickered to each other when I told them, and insisted we just take the stairs then. The manager was no help either, just pointing in the direction of the elevator. Finally was able to get in a service elevator after arguing with two security guards who insisted we weren't allowed in. Was with two disabled people, so that did not feel great. Reservation was for five, but none of the tables in this restaurant can comfortably sit more than four people. Ended up sitting with one cheek off the booth for the entire meal and none of us are big people. I tried to order a drink with vodka and was told they only* have Grey Goose even though their menu has two cheaper vodkas on it as well. I had a miserable time at my birthday dinner.

    We had a late reservation and from the moment we were sat down felt very rushed. Waiter had very little patience. Rest of the staff rushed us as well. Before we were done eating the staff was sweeping the floors all around us. Kicking up dust. This all took away from how good the food was.

    We have been to this location numerous times and it has been ok compared to the others. For some reason this location has difficulties with the timing of the food being brought to the table. We waited around 30 min for 3 fried rices and garlic noodles. The vegetables were cold by the time it did come out. In addition, 2 people from our party ordered 4 meats and the waiter assumed we wanted the value course and added that to our bill. Once we realized that we did not order any of things included in the Value Course we brought it to his attention and requested he remove it. He was also not the best waiter. He wasnt attentive at all. We LOVE Gyu-Kaku but will avoid this location in the future.

    I love this place. Second time being here! Prices are pretty decent! Food is always delicious! I’ve only been here for the Japanese bbq twice! Staff is also amazing and friendly! I will be honest, I’ve had better kimchi. Their kimchi tastes a bit weird to me but I still ate it! But besides that their food is reallllly goood! Will be back again soon!

    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.
