    Due to unexpected traffic, I had to push our reservation back three times. The hostess was very patient and gracious when we arrived. Because we were going to the theater, we only had 45 minutes to dine. Our server, Duy, was excellent! His recommendations were spot on. Our drinks and food arrived promptly and allowed us to grill and still depart on time. Cocktails and entire meal were delicious and we will return. Thank you to the great staff!

    Our experience at Gyu was amazing. We made a reservation so the wait was not long. The waiter was very friendly and helpful with the menu. After ordering it did not take long at all for the food to come out.

    My first time to a Japanese barbecue restaurant. We went in a large group and ordered the feast for six people. It was a lot of fun sitting there talking and cooking our food over the table grill. Unique experience. I would highly recommend it for any type of group outing.

    Wanted to like this place, but it just didn't sit particularly well with me. It's less the service and food quality, but numerous items on the menu being "unavailable" (some for extended periods). Sure, I get that there will be outages from time to time, but....with a chain THIS extensive.....there's no excuse for MULTIPLE menus listings to be "out". This made it particularly challenging for me, having limited options to begin with due to medical issues.....requiring some creative workarounds. While my family enjoyed THEIR meals, I was stuck without options. If that's the case, note it ahead of time....rather than waiting for the diner to ask/be turned down.

    The meat was not the best quality and did not taste like my previous visit. Overall, the place looked like it could have been cleaned better. Even though we ordered the same thing on this recent visit, we got less food for the same price. The server wasn’t as helpful as she could have been and did not regulate the temperature of the grill. It was either too high (flames protruding) or too low and took forever to cook. Also, the grilled burned and they didn’t replace it like the previous visit. This was a bad experience for the price we paid.

    It’s obvious how the grill works but think the experience would have been better if they explained how to cook some of the non meat items a little better. Our experience was the waiter put all the food on the table, said nothing, and disappeared until we were done. Not terrible but not worth leaving the French quarter.
