Every time we visit we are always impressed with the food and service. It appears that all the servers help each other out at different tables, such as when you’re waiting and your food is ready but your server is busy at another table, another server will bring you your dish or ask if we need anything else. They also clean off the plates that you are finished with as you finish them. I hate having plates piled up on the table, it takes up too much room. So I love that they are always watching out for them. The food is delicious and most of the time we go for date night and do the party of 2 meal. There is always enough food and you will not leave with a hungry belly. Our favorite part though is the s’mores for dessert. Yumm.

Food is good. Service was good but that changes as staff comes and goes. The place is not well designed. Tables are close together, they are small so you can't fit everything on the table and they are not really kid friendly.

We went between lunch and dinner (happy hour). Less people so it was easier to talk. I think if you want a good Japanese bbq go. Very worth it.

My date was ruined when I was sat at a huge table and could not hear my husband and felt far away from him. I requested to be sat at a cozier table and was told no yet I saw plenty of people being sat at those tables. My privacy was invaded and I will not be back

Always great food, but they need work on bringing out food. Received most proteins first and all the sides separate. Hardly space on the table.

I was seated on the wood boxes making it very uncomfortable for the 2hr. I was there.we had a party of 5 , which they seat you in the tables with boxes leaving very little space for leg room. Had my legs folded . If I moved , it would of made the others in the party uncomfortable as well.

The prices don't look high until you see how small the portion sizes are. Each portion is with out exaggeration, four to five bits. It's fun to try once but not a good value over all.

Gyu-Kaku was a great place for me and my boyfriend to celebrate an anniversary. The atmosphere was lively and the waitstaff very attentive. We arrived during happy hour (after 8:30) and loved the cheaper drinks and food. The food was delicious and we had a great time experimenting with cook times over the grill. The one critique I have is that the food seems a bit overpriced for the amount of food that you receive realistically. I would definitely try a platter for your first time, but find what you like and just order that in the future to save money.

This restaurant exceeded my expectations. I had so much fun with my partner grilling our food. Our servers were very cordial and accommodated our every request. The meats were perfectly seasoned and the Kirin draft was soft and refreshing. The s’mores at the end were the cherry on top! 10/10 will and have already recommended, and will definitely be back soon!

This was our first visit to Gyu-Kaku. Definitely recommend having a reservation. Even with one, we waited about 15 minutes. This is a great place to go with a group of people. We were just 3 and were able to bring home leftovers. Staff is very attentive. It was fun to cook on the little bbq in the center of the table. We ordered something called the Samurai! Holy cow was that a lot of food! The meat quality is top notch. You end the night with smores, which seems weird, but who doesn't like to roast marshmallows? We are definitely going back to try more things! Highly recommend.
