I made a reservation for 9 but they were running late so I got seated past my reservation. Other than that a very good dining experience.

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.

Great place for lunch or dinner with friends, family or a date. The concept is fun and engaging, and a great way to get everyone interacting over the meal. Food is always fresh, the meats are of good quality and very well seasoned / marinated. On our last visit, Jasmin took care of us and she was fantastic! Very attentive without being intrusive, and she even arranged for our items to be delivered to the table in two rounds that allowed us to enjoy our meal without overcrowding the table or feeling rushed in any way. Big thanks to Jasmin, she's a star! Great value on Sunday for All Day Happy hour!

Everything was great. Food was amazing. I just didn’t like how they didn’t sit their guests until the whole party was there. They had everyone crowded at their small entrance. It was hot and waiters were trying to walk through to their tables with food/drinks. At the end of the day, is all about the revenue that customers bring to the restaurant and to have a good experience.

My boyfriend and I usually come to this location all the time because we love the food and whatnot but last time we dined here it was extremely hot, I’m not sure if the air conditioning was broken but it was not pleasant to have to dine over an open grill and for the restaurant to be extremely hot as well. This has been a disappointing experience
