    We have been here so many times, and I noticed that grill was not working right. There were area that I did not see any fire coming out. It worked out fine as we wanted to take time to enjoy the food. Gyu-sushi used be made correctly but now they lay machine made sushi rice net to each other with no space, and place meat on the top, so it was hard to eat.

    I don't think I've ever written a restaurant review before, but after our experience last night, it seemed necessary to share our experience. We had a reservation for 730pm. Upon getting seated we waited 25 minutes for a server to come to our table. He then asked if it was our first time dining at Gyu-kaku and we said it was. In a matter of 10 seconds he ran through the menu and "how it worked". I ordered a tequila/soda water and we placed our meal order since we had figured out the menu while waiting for the waiter. Server came back 10 minutes later and I was told they did not have any more tequila. I found this odd considering we saw bottles upon bottles of tequila in the bar area. He came back 15 minutes later (after our food started arriving) to see if I wanted another drink. We ordered a bottle of wine instead. The server appeared extremely overwhelmed and came back with dirty wine glasses and quickly placed an unopened bottle of wine on the table and never returned. We opened the bottle and served the wine ourselves and did not bother complaining about the glasses with dust on them. The food was delicious. We enjoyed it. However, we ordered a bottle of wine because we knew it would be impossible to find our waiter again. He did not check on us once during the meal to see if we needed anything. I asked about additional sauces to purchase and he said no and that they were on the table. Long story short, the service was highly disappointing for a rather expensive meal. We would like to return since we enjoyed the food, but service ruined the experience.

    The meat quality is degrading. To order prime beef rib with 5 pieces, you'll pay for $16.45. Kobe beef rib with 5 thin pieces will cost you more than $26. Whether you feel it's worthy to have these type/part of beef in a BBQ place or not is your personal call. Additionally, when ordering multiple orders of a particular type, you'll get it grouped in one plate and have broken/smaller pieces in the plate.....

    Don’t come here if you’re hungry. Expect to spend more time waiting than eating. You can go ahead and set reservations if you want, but they will not be honored (set mine for 6:45 and didn’t get sat down until 7:45) The portions are unacceptablt small for the price…they charge $9 for 3 oz of regular pork belly….that’s almost $48/pound….insane.

    Wonderful Japanese BBQ! I've only had Korean BB, so wasn't sure how it was going to be different. But the food was great, and Alexander, our server, was very nice. It was pretty busy when we were there, so definitely recommend reservations. We went on a Sunday afternoon at 3 PM.

    Our first time at Gyu-Kaku was just okay. The bar didn't have the ingredients to make basic cocktails, the kitchen had apparently just ran out of waygu right before we got there. The drinks we did order were loaded with a ton of syrups and barely any alcohol. We were told that we needed to get a different dessert with the experience that we selected because they were out of whipped cream. The beef sushi starter was tasted like deli roast beef. For knowing that we were first timers, our waiter did a poor job of explaining how to go about the meal. We noticed other servers coming to check up on their tables and continuously oiling their grills, which ours never did to begin with so all of our meat was sticking to the grill. Our fire also went out mid-meal which was annoying. We probably won't come back, which is a shame because we've heard nothing but good things. We'll choose somewhere more authentic next time.

    We had an amazing experience. The staff is very friendly and kind, especially when kids are in the table. We ordered meat lovers for 2 and didn't need to order any extras for the kids. It was plenty of food for all of us. Our kids love cooking their food in the grill. Overall, it is a great place for family or couples. We will be back for sure.

    I have 3 boys. 16,15 and 8 yrs old. With all the cellphones craziness and kids not actually participating in talking during meals- I love it when I find anything that will get them engaged and interacting during meals. Guy- kaku is one of our top restaurants for this reason. All the meats are superb quality and boys love that freedom that they get to grill their own meat. We always feel closer as a family when we leave that place. It gets busy especially weekend dinner times but servers are always willing to switch your grills and bring you whatever you need. We love this restaurant

    Value: Went during restaurant week & very good value. The lunch menu ($25/person from 11am-5pm) came with half salad, soup, and rice with a choice of 1 appetizer, 2 meats, and a s’more for dessert. The all day menu ($42/person) came with half salad, soup, rice, and extra steak sushi (2pc) with appetizer, 2 meats, 1 premium meat, and a choice of s’more, vanilla/green tea ice cream. Bf and I also ordered drinks. Food: Japanese bbq is always fun since you get to cook your own food to your liking and it’s interactive. They always have well seasoned meats and veggies and there are options for everyone (steak, chicken, shrimp, veggies, etc) Service: service was sub-par. Not super busy but we spent more time waiting for staff to bring the drinks, food, check, etc than actually cooking/eating. Had a 12:30 reservation and was there until a little past 2:30. Wouldn’t recommend if you’re in search of a quick bite to eat. Overall: great value for restaurant week, but they also have deals & happy hours throughout the week as well. Great rewards program if you’re into that. Worth checking out if you’ve never had Japanese bbq before!

    Great food and a fun date night for my wife and I. Value meal was a great value! We cooked everything up and took it home. Music was the highlight for my wife, she said “did they take this from my personal playlist?”. Great service as well. Only issue I had was I wish they had metal utensils for guys like me who can’t use chop sticks, instead of plastic take out utensils

    We came in on a Tuesday at 12:30pm. There were only a few customers and Only a few workers. I assume it’s typically a slow time for them. Never the less the service was quite friendly and great once we were seated. The food was excellent and a good value. The atmosphere is fun. And with a smal group 4-8 it is fun to talk while you cook and drink. You can share a taste of each other’s choices. I imagine this place is hopping during evening hours.

    There was no one at the host's stand so it took a while to get seated. After we were seated our server was great. We went during restaurant week and enjoyed the lunch special on the weekend. It was good but we felt that the choices were a bit limited. We had the options of various flavors of beef, 2 shrimp types and a few chicken varieties. We wanted more veggies. I would go back for the house salad and the spicy cucumbers but not so much for the watery tea and beef slices.
