    Really enjoyed this place. Seating was a little tight, and it was very loud inside, but other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed all the food, and the service was excellent

    SF restaurant week is a great way to try new places and Gyu-Kaku was a great find. Very friendly and attentive staff, and as first timers, we loved the fact that we cook our main dishes on our personal hibachi. Didn’t wait long for our server to take our order and he explained the process. Drinks came out right away and our order came a reasonable time after. Meat lovers paradise. We ordered a fixed price lunch special and next time, I want to try the seafood. Got out of town guests? Bring them here for a memorable experience!

    Service was great. Food came out so slow, but everything tasted good and well marinated. Good ayce options as well but if you are looking for something with ayce items that come out quick like other places, this is not the one.

    The three of us ordered the BBQ for three and the wait staff couldn’t track what they brought us vs. what they needed to bring us. Offered miso soup and s’mores twice. Had to ask near the end of the meal for the rice (how could not see we didn’t have any rice) and never received salad, mushrooms and I forget what other thing we didn’t get. By the end I just wanted out.

    Great concept. . . cook your own meat on a grill installed in the table. Loved the choice of other than barbecue and the prices were extremely reasonable. The service was good at first, then slow. Somebody forgot us. Had to take the check up to the register or risk being late for an appointment.

    Came here for Valentine’s Day dinner and it was the best! The menu had a lot of variety. So many different types of meats and seafood to choose from. Service was great and our waiter was very friendly.
