Some friends and I went after work. We wanted something fun and interactive. I’ve been here before and thought they would love it, and they did!!! Our waitress was out of this world and our drinks didn’t go empty. All of the staff is so thoughtful and pleasant. I LOVED the food, and showing my friends all the selection of meats and veggies, it was so delish! The all you can eat was awesome because the meats we liked, we ordered more, and the others were fun to try at least. Can’t wait to go back!! But make sure you make room for the deserts!!!

We always have great service at Gyu-Kaku. The food is excellent with lots of variety. The waiter was always attentive and kept my 2 year old entertained and occupied.

Strongly recommend not to go there around 7, even you have reservation. It's just hectically busy and staff are losing their mind. You can't expect good detailed service when they are literally running around.

This was my third time at Gyu-Kaku, and it was in my third location (I’ve been in NY, Miami and now New Orleans). I love love love this place. The service is top notch (they give you a greeting when you are seated and farewell when you leave which I thought was pretty cool). The food gets to you fast and the appetizers are really delicious. I would recommend 10x over if I could. Definitely eat here!!

George was the bomb. Took the time to run us through the menu, and made some suggestions. Really enjoyed our time dinner, and was a great way to finish the day.

The food and service were great. The server explained how long to cook items and where to place them on the grill. They also changed the grills frequently. The meats were well marinated, and they have varied menu options. I am not really into chain restaurants but this one was very good.

We had a few starters which were good. The chicken karaage and edamame were quite tasty. The spicy cucumbers were just okay and the rice was a bit dry, but neither of these items took away from this fun and interactive meal.

Great food! Busy energetic restaurant. Server took time to explain the menu in detail and was helpful throughout our meal. Some meats were unavailable, but were substituted for others. All were delicious.

When I made the reservation I told them it was my husband’s Birthday and I mentioned it once we sat down. There were other people celebrating a birthday and they brought me a check and no Happy Birthday.

I went for a family birthday with my parents. They enjoyed their food but it was a little loud. Other than that the servers were very friendly and always checking on us.

We ordered the meal for 4 and it was a crazy amount of amazing food. The service was beyond good and everything tasted incredible. My girls have decided that this is their new favorite restaurant. Definitely worth the trip. The only downside is that you have to pay to park.

It was great. Food was and is always awesome. Only disappointment was not being able to substitute for something I wanted when another dish was out of stock that was part of the menu I ordered from. Ordered the samurai for 4 ppl, and they were out of the garlic noodles. Asked to get the miso chicken wings instead, but they said it was not possible due to corporate. So we had to choose btw two noodle soup dishes which went to waste bc no one cared for it.

Love to take friends for their first time to try Japanese BBQ before or after a New Orleans Saints game. They enjoyed the whole experience. It is a new experience for a lot of people. Food is very good! Staff is very friendly and helpful.

The food was great but if you want value you should go for the combos that they have. I personally love the meat lover and a beef rice they are sooooo good. Even though it’s a little pricy it’s always great to go and celebrate for special occasion

This was our first visit here and we will definitely be back! We truly enjoyed the whole dining experience, the waiter was really helpful with recommendations and everything he recommended was on point. The food was delicious, it was a taste of our visit to Japan a few years back. The owner Kai stopped by to check on us and was very hospitable and gracious. Very enjoyable dinner!
