    The food was delicious, you are left to your own devices to cook the food however, service was amazing and the staff are super attentive. The meat and vegetables ordered were fresh and tasted great, food arrived to our table not long after ordering.

    This was the 4th location we have tried and this one by far is at the bottom regarding overall experience. It was sticky-dirty sticky and needs a deep clean. It was also very difficult all of the food- the pork, Chicken and veg case 45 mins after everything else to get scissors to cut the thick meat was impossible. We also came for a 16th birthday notes in the reservation and they didn’t do anything and forgot. We love Korean BBQ but we won’t ever come to this location again.

    The worst part, It can be very loud in here, to the point you may not hear your server or even the person across from you. But they are super nice, super caring, and the food and atmosphere is spectacular. Can get pricey, as a full course dinner for two, including drinks, ended at 125 without tip (Two drinks on happy hour). This was with meat upgrades as well, this full course for two just over 100. So 50 for two people. Certainly worth the treat and great after a 2:00 show at the Al Hirschfield Theater. You do not leave hungry, and you also do not leave with leftovers, which would be a pain to carry back to the station. Bathrooms are nice as well.

    Absolutely love this restaurant! Such a fun atmosphere! Service is always amazing! The food is amazing cuts of meat and just so delicious! Although service is never an issue, I did feel todays staff was more informative and a bit better than usual. Plates were removed immediately upon finishing! Water glasses were refilled before empty and drinks were asked for refills before empty! Superior! Highly recommend! Get the app for to earn points and get discounts!

    Gyu-Kaku is an experience and a fun one at that. The food is good, but a lot is up to how well you cook your own food. Soup was tasty, apps were all good, cuts of meat were mostly very good, the s’mores, was a basic s’mores, but those are yummy. Overall, go for the experience. It’s fun and delicious.

    As always gyukaku is an excellent cheap treat. Price and wait times speak well of the way its managed. The only thing I have to say is that this particular time I was serviced by a floppy haired man of 5'5" named Vincent. Who effectively forgot my order, avoided us and just didn't listen to us. Would you like to see a menu ? No. okay let me get you one. Have you been here ? No. Alright let me explain everything. He repeated my order back to me and still didn't get me my items until asked. He seems a little anxious, maybe it's his first day, but I really don't want him again.

    First and last visit to Gyu-Kaku. Service was quite slow, but the server was extremely apologetic. We ordered several small plates and a "Meat Lover's Special" -- the food we received was definitely not worth $90 ($155 overall). The garlic chicken, for example, was $9.00 -- we were presented with enough chicken to make three chicken nuggets. We enjoyed the experience cooking the food on the grill, but we will not return.

    The restaurant was very crowded and noisy. A number of menu items were not available. Food was served before we were ready to eat it (main course before salads). Will not return.
