Gyu-Kaku - Times Square Ratings and Reviews
Food was just ok, nothing special, service is ok actually, I mean the waiter, but the woman at the entrance, not very kind.
I booked a table for 5 for 6 p.m., and 3 of us arrived around 5:50 p.m., other 2 were on their way. But the woman at entrance refused to set us a table, said we have to wait until all of us arrived.
WTF???My friends are about to arrive, 3 of us are already here, and half of the restaurant is empty, but we HAVE TO WAIT???WHY CANT WE HAVE A TABLE TO SIT!!!!!!!
Screw your rules, I won't came again, and I won't recommend my friends to come.
Great place, you get to cook your own meat and they have a great selection to choose from and even have a selection for group orders. Happy Hour runs till 330pm and everything was well prepared and quick servicell. We were headed to see Kinky Boots which was right around the corner so the location was a plus. We would definitely recommend this place as a great before the show meal.
I met a business associate for a light meal at 3pm. As soon as we were seated we were recommended the $107 package for two. I found this rude and as if we were expected to spend a ton of money. During our meal we were told that we were seated in a barbecue table and we didn't order a barbecue meal. I never asked for a barbecue table when I made the reservation?! We felt very rushed as we were asked several times if there was anything more we wanted, and then given the check. The place was not even close to being busy for them to rush us. The waiters seemed unenthusiastic and never smiled. The Bibimbap with beef and vegetables was hard to find ... but a boat load of rice. Terrible dish.
Happy hour prices for drinks were ok. I will not be a return customer. There are plenty of other places nearby in the Big Apple.
I enjoyed our waitress, Pat. I just wish we saw her more often, it was weird that we kept having different servers, but that's teamwork. I did t like that a guy came over to our table to make sure that we were going to pay the $1.00 for a side of sauce before he bought it out. I pointed to the menu to our waitress Pat, so I'm not sure why this guy did that but I guess it's alright being its costly.
It also took us a while to get someone's attention to get our third drink, and to receive that drink but the drinks tasted great and the prices were too.
The guy came over with our meat and said the pork and chicken have to be cooked well done, understanly, but the gas was turned on too high and our pork burned after 60 seconds, I assume due to the spicy marinade, next time, we will order the marinade on the side and use it for dipping.
I will definitely be coming here more often and showing more friends how great this experience is!
Everything was pretty good except the drinks. Both my date and I ordered alcoholic drinks. None of them appeared to have any in it (or maybe just a drop). Instead of my Ginger lemonade (alcohol), my second drink ordered a regular lemonade and it tasted the exact same.
