The food was delicious but we felt very rushed. We came to celebrate a birthday, hence why I made a reservation. I was told we couldn't sit until the entire party (3 people) were there. Not a problem. One member showed up 10 minutes late. As we were being sat, we were told we had 1 hr and 20 minutes because our table had another reservation. We then proceeded to see another table being sat without the entire party arriving til several minutes later. We were a little peeved to see that happen in front of our eyes, when we couldn't be sat and then told our time was limited.
I needed to wait for a while to have seat. However, the manager and the team members are prompt and nice. The server was attentive and food was prepared fast. I love the food and the service here. The entrance and exit are separate and the hand sanitizers are provided upon arrival which is good way to prevent spread of virus. Love here!
We had a very good experience at Gyu-Kaku. The quality of the food was high and varied, the service was excellent and it was a lot of fun. Overall, a creative and enjoyable experience.
Great food. Great service. Love going there for lunch or dinner
It was great, food came out fast, was absolutely delicious!
Food and staff was excellent, but everything was rushed and In didn’t like the time allocation to eat. Not a good feeling to feel rushed and under a deadline wen ur looking to have a leisure experience.
It felt like it was before covid I loved it
Second time I’ve been back to this location in a week. Customer service is always so warm, kind and attentive. Definitely felt safe with the COVID protocols. Food always super delish!
Everything was great, food was delicious
Restrictions due to Covid-19 (some relevant some not at all), made the experience not worth with.
My Family experience at Gyu-Kaku Midtown location was amazing. The service was great and the food was AMAZING. We will definetly be back and I highly recommend this place to everyone.
The place and server were amazing
Legit Japanese food and excellent service
One of our go-to bbq places in NYC. Great for friends!
Our families first time at the midtown location. The location was perfect, the view was amazing, facility was clean and safe during COVID, staff was friendly and Food was delicious as expected!
One of the best restaurants in Midtown. Great food and great value.
Great food, fun environment, reasonably priced and great service!! This was our first time dining here and we already can't wait to come back!
I will forever recommend this place. The food and drinks are phenomenal and the staff is great.
Great service from Michael! Amazing as always and consistent with the other locations.
I come here often and am never disappointed. The meat is always succulent and marinated beautifully. There is just something about grilling your own food that’s highly satisfying. The drinks are strong, and very reasonably priced during happy hour. Will continue to come back here and rack up points on their loyalty app for great discounts!
They were really strict about 2hr dining policy this time. I understand because it was really busy!! They accommodate us at the bar to finish our drinks :-)
They have a good variety of items for you to cook on the grill in the middle of your table. The food was delicious and the service was very good. Highly recommended.
Great time great food
This Gyu-kaku location is my least favorite of the NYC franchises. Our waiter had dirty finger nails. Japanese restaurants and their servers are supposed to be spotless! Also, the miso soup had no flavor. This is the second time this has happened so it’s clearly not a fluke. Overall, the food is still good but I won’t come to this location anymore.
Simply amazing. My boyfriend & I always love to come here especially this location. The workers are super nice and food is just so good.
Service wasn’t good. Won’t be returning
It was a great experience
♥️ open east village back!
I absolutely love this place ! Always great food, reasonable pricing for NYC and the staff is so energetic and welcoming. One of my Go To spots!
Upset from the get-go. Made reservation and still made us wait more than half an hour to be seated.
Always great happy hour, service & food!!
They were great changing grill, accommodating for birthday cake with c as candle and singing!
Great lunch options. Place is usually busy so smart to make a reservation.
My daughter(age 8) had a lot of fun using the grill. Second time coming with her. With kids, better prior to 6pm, even midweek since it makes a great date spot too. Waitstaff are polite and responsive. They also preempted a possible allergic reaction to fish in one of the dipping sauces. Very grateful for that.
Meat was too salty, and utensils were way too dirty. I requested for different utensils, and the ones the server brought me was dirty as well. I ended up using my chopsticks instead.
I've eaten at the other Gyu-Kaku in Philadelphia (there are many in USA), and I have to say that the service quality is consistent. However, our waiter was exceptional. He attended to just about everything we requested. We even asked to have my baby's food heated and he took care of that without any complaint or excuse. We made sure to tip him very well. Also, this restaurant is on the 2nd floor and has a glass roof. So, we didn't feel enclosed and got the sunshine to brighten our lunch.
Great place, I always take friends and family to this restaurant, it’s inexpensive and great service, need one in Long Island NY
Always amazing and the servers were just fantastic, have been here three times in last three months
