Great restaurant for groups with well-behaved kids. We were five adults and two kids. Kids loved the hibachi and adults got to catch up, too. Food was good and staff was very friendly.

My boyfriend and I have been to multiple Gyu Kaku’s and this one was one of our favorites! We loved that it was located on the second floor and we got a booth by the window so we got to enjoy the beautiful view. The service was exceptional and the happy hour was great. We also redeemed some awards from the app!

First time being in a Japanese barbecue and was not quite sure of what the experience would be. I order Japanese fried chicken but there was some issue with the frying equipment so I was unable to enjoy this appetizer. One of the beef entree was unavailable. Was not necessarily ready to cook my own meal. I wanted to enjoy the company of my friend and was distracted by having to cook my own meal. Serving portions were almost non-existent. The rib eye was ok and so was the chicken. I enjoyed the side dish of corn. May or may not go back for a second experience. Might try a different location.

Went after a spa to eat dinner with a group of four. We come in order a bunch of salad soup meat. They give us the steak and beef before the salad. The rice wasn’t crispy or even hot and given after we finished half our meats plates. They drop off the check before we are even done eating our meal or have been given our dessert. We had to ask for something we paid for. Extremely rushed food somewhat on point other than rice which was prepared poorly. Worse service ever in New York!!!!!!! Will not go back to that location!!!!!crappy set ice and management! Poorly executed!

Made a reservation on open table and had a confirmation number and my name was in the system. Got to restaurant and their system had not given me a table and apparently there were none remaining. Restaurant refused to find a table for me and suggested I sit and wait another 45 minutes to see if others didn't show up. Nothing was done to remedy the situation and no apology. Will not be returning to this location.

It was wonderful honestly; for me that was my 3rd time going there and every time my experience has been the same. The food is amazing; the ambiance is great and the people and staff are a joy to be around and are very nice. No complaints at all and definitely will be back more times in the future.

Love love love this place. I came for my birthday dinner with friends and it was phenominal (as always). I've been to several Gyu Kaku locations and each has its own unique charm. The food was great and did not take extremely long to arrive. The happy hour drinks at the bar were great. I made sure to get two to ring back once we were seated. All in all this was, as expected, a great dining experience.

Being able to sit with my family of 7 plus me was awesome! The food just kept coming which I love, and all the meat dishes we ordered and the veggies were delish!
My family tried some of the rice dishes which pretty much disappeared.
The servers coming by often enough to check on us was well timed and thoughtful - they timed bringing my birthday cake out too!

I booked an 8pm reservation but did not get seated until 8:30pm. I understand it was busy and appeared the delay was due to table turning over and being short a waitress is what I was told. Regardless the food was good and my kids had a good time. Waitress was very personable and friendly. Had to remind her about our servings of rice and my wife’s glass of wine. Overall we had a good time and would go back.

We made reservation last minute and ordered a lil late which made me feel bad cause we were the last before kitchen closed and I work at a kitchen so I know the feeling. Overall the drinks were great, the Tokyo sunrise cocktail I ordered was tasty. Food was delicious, spot on, nothing bad to say. The experience of cooking it at the table was fun. The pricing surprised me, so reasonable. I'll definitely be coming back to this place. Great service, great food no complaints on anything. Just complements, want to thank everyone for everything at the restaurant.

Overall it was great but don’t sit beside the window in a sunny day. Your eyes could not bear it. And do bring a pair of heat proof gloves with you. It aches when you barbecue.

I had a 9:15 reservation and arrived by 9pm with a full party ,I was then seated at 9:40pm . I was a bit upset about this because I thought the reservation was set for that time or a 15 min window. Other then that our waiter , Marvin , was great ! This was my second time having him as a waiter and he is very professional. Thank you for helping me kick off my weekend with a bang of great food and I do look forward to coming again .
