Perfect for a small group of friends or maybe like a third date!
The food is great. Rice came to late but our waiter didn’t count that in our menu. Great choice for a weekend night.
My experience was not as I had remembered pre-COVID. Went for early Saturday dinner. Dinner menu was not current. Apparently more extensive menu online. Draft beer was not working. Ordered seaweed salad and was told they were sold out. No soup spoons or cutlery. Was given prewrapped plastic knife, fork, spoon and napkins that you get with take out. We were told that this was due to COVID. We’ve dined at other restaurants and have always been given proper cutlery. Overall the service was very slow but, I realize that they may be understaffed and our server was very polite and working hard. Unfortunately a disappointing experience this visit.
The taste and meat texture went downhill, it used to be very good. Service is ok, our waiter was good, but some others need more training, for instance, when we just arrived and was waiting for the person to check us in and show us the table but he was not there(maybe busy), two waitresses at the door could’ve greeted us and told us that someone would be there a little bit. But instead, they stared at us and walked away, we were all just standing there and trying to figure out what was going on. And food quality, idk what they did in terms of marinating the beef and pork, they are not at all balanced, too sweet in most cases.
It was hair in my food, too hot, and bad service. Waited an hour to get service and a hour to get check. They also gave us the wrong bill
First family night out since covid. We liked that it seemed they were limiting tables etc….. and of course the food was great!!
I’ve been to several locations of Gyu-Kaku and this place is the worst. It needs some work. The seats are worn out, the paint is chipping and the AC hasn’t been fixed for weeks. Eating over a hot stove when it’s 90 degrees in the restaurant is not a good experience. The bathroom was dirty.
The staff was very attentive but asking these guys to work in these conditions is not right.
The food and service was very good but the place in general was not very hygien. The bathroom smell weird and a little bit dirty. The dining area is not very clean as well.
Nyree the bartender deserves a huge raise! Angel on earth!
This was a great experience. I enjoyed cooking my own food over the fire! And the rice I got to accompany my main dish was soooo good! I’ll be visiting again!
It was nice experience

Me and my Girlfriend one year anniversary
The meal and experience was very good. My only issue was that when I went to use the restroom to change my son’s diaper, there was no changing table accommodations. Unfortunately, I had to change my son on the floor.
We walked and had to wait for 10 minutes after we talked to the host before we were actually seated
Due to beef shortages, they were out of several of the dishes. Our server told us they would swap in others that were in stock. He then had to be reminded to bring the swapped offerings. He also forgot to bring some additional dishes for which we had paid and did not realize it at the time.
Also- we had two tables- 1 grill did not function at all, the other only partially.
Food flavors are great, experience is fun, but watch out for subpar service and not getting all you paid for.
Our Father’s Day lunch was terrific!
Excellent food, great service- more than one waiter/waitress stopped by to check on everything. Great menu bundle specials for everyone.
Went to one in Toronto and New York City. Good services and food. This one is not up to the level of the others. Food is mediocre. Service is minimal. Not enjoyable in any standard.
We had a great experience and amazing food! John the manager was outstanding customer service 100%— delicious food and clean! Totally recommend this place :)
Great time for my first BBQ experience! Our server gave us great instructions and yummy recommendations.
nice place but need to wait for half hour to get the food
Must try amazing flavors!! Everything was good that we tried!
It was amazing honestly all around! Our server was so friendly and even sat us when we arrived. The food was absolutely wonderful and we will definitely be back :)
Went for Mother’s Day! Food was good as usual however they were having issues with the grills. It kept burning out.
Great time and our waiter/ waitress (we had one in training) they were both great
Great restaurant and dining experience. The food portion is sufficient and good meat. The staff was helpful and service was great.
Will definitely go again
We love this place .
Food and Drinks never disappoint!!!
No all you can eat. Service was a little slow. But overall it was an enjoyable meal
Two words...Shina & Valeria. If these two weren’t there this place would be a COVID casualty.
ALWAYS AMAZING!!! staff is always nice and helpful food is great
First time trying it & it was amazing!!!
Food is amazing!
No more all you can eat, but the grilled meats were still delicious. The octopus in the takoyaki was tough but it still tasted good. Overall could have done with less salt, but the rice helped with that.
Great service and delicious food. Not a single complaint
Food was great! Service was terrible. Waiter was new and pretty much knew how to do nothing. Our appetizers took 20-25 mins to come out. Then our main course came out 1-2 items at a time. Things were so unorganized, we ate things separately. It was bad. But again, the food was amazing!
The best restaurant I’ve been to in a long time the food was delicious and the service was 5 star the manager even came by the table to introduce himself, I will definitely revisit the restaurant very soon 🙂
The person who greeted and sat us was very kind and outgoing. I’m assuming he was the manager or owner. The food was amazing and our drinks were delicious. Was very quiet and relaxing until a bigger party was sat near us but overall a very good experience.
Amazing dinning during covid restrictions. Very clean. And not crowded. Loved the food. Valentine’s Day perfection
