I reserved for my family for my birthday. I had to convince my parents to go, as they do not much like to go to Montreal anymore. Unfortunately, the food was not as good as I remembered it. Almost everything was overly salty: any meat with miso sauce, the garlic noodles, the steamed broccoli, and most of all the premium tongue. The bistro hanger that I remember being the cut my friends and I had agreed on numerous occasions to be the best one for the price fell short this time. The meat was tough, and salty. This practice feels akin to lower-end Korean BBQ places salting all their meats or marinading various meats with the same recipe. The appeal of Gyu-Kaku, beyond grilling meat, was to taste the different cuts of meat. I did not taste beef this time, only different salty textures.

While table waiting service was excellent, management's solution to our complaint about the premium tongue being exceedingly salty was to offer us another serving of it. We were already at the end of our meal (after our initial first dishes, the rest came at a snail's pace) and we were already full. At a minimum, the premium beef tongue should have been docked from the bill. In retrospect, it may have been, but there was no mention of it and I threw away the receipt, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for that.

One last small point of criticism. I had reserved for 5 and they sat us at a table for 4 with an added chair at the end. Are there no tables made for 6 people? It was a bit hectic to place all the dishes on the table. Thankfully the waiting staff was attentive and quick to clear away empty plates.

We were four and we took the SHOGUN menu. All of us would have like to see a bit more fish in that meal. We had three variety of beef cuts, chicken, pork and shrimps. You should consider a sea food menu. But over all, we did enjoy our meal.

Came to Gyu Kaku for a keto cheat meal!! Definitely stayed keto after sticking to meats and low carb veggies... sauces and marinades may have had some carbs but it was worth it!

Took our daughter and friends while they were in
Montreal to perform (early 20’s) They loved the food and and being able to grill it themselves. Great servers and plenty of food and choices on the 6 person “Shogun” we ordered. Fun for family or group.

We reserved a table for 8, and finally we were 6, told them at the entrance, and finally they gave us a table for 4 and added a chair and we were sitting 3 on a place for 2. And we didnt' have enough place for everything on the table, it was very tight. Next time ask a table for 2 ppl extra and you should be ok.

Food is great and it's a really great experience. Ambiance and noise level are perfect. The one thing that is weird is how the insist on the letting you dine no more than 2 hours. We were 6 and without wasting anytime, we almost took up the entire 2 hours. When you order the set menus, there are a million dishes so it takes time... but still everyone loved it.
