Overall good experience as usual but our grill wasn’t working very well. Slightly limited menu due to the times but food quality was good.

I usually go to gyu in Sherman oaks or Burbank but I decided to take my girlfriend to the one in canoga park and it was one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had at gyu not only was the service poor some of the food was terrible we waited over 20 min to get drinks and decided to order the rest of the food and appetizers at the same time the food came out before the appetizers and the cheese fondu that my girlfriend wanted never came out until she mentioned it to our server and the server must have been overwhelmed because she made it seem like we should have reminded her of the cheese fondu but I feel like she was treating horrible and I probably will never go back and tell everyone to never go to that location.

It was really an easy set up and even let us in earlier than the reservation suggested. Thank you for the great service.

Service was great, but wished they followed the rules for the winter peel offs... I felt like they added their own, “have to have a left over balance of $10 to use the card” instead of, “$10 minimum purchase”. Not a good business practice at all.

Always a nice meal at Gyu-Kaku. The portions are small, so you have to order a lot, which can add up, which is why we usually go during lunch or happy hour when their prices are reduced. They have an excellent variety of appetizers and main dishes to choose from, something for everyone! Fun time!

The food as always was good, not great. The service this time was great. The waitress was attentive and nice. The only drawback was the host, he was not welcoming and we had to wait for 15 minutes.

The hostess was extremely rude and let people sit before us. However, once we finally got seated, our service sas amazing and so was the food!

Be warned they don't have high chairs! Only booster seats, so my child had to eat in her stroller. : (

Getting seated was fast coz we booked through opentable in advance. We ordered the premium all you can eat. Service was fast in the beginning but then started to slowdown coz they got busy. The servings of meat aren’t as much compared to when you eat at korean bbq restaurants. The waiters don’t pay attention to when your drinks run out and sometimes it’s difficult to find them. When you do find them and call them they don’t hear you or look at you. I think they have to check on their customers more often when they order all you can eat.

Worst service ever with the host. It’s always the same little Asian guy and he is so overwhelmed and keeps people waiting with reservations for much longer than needed. Always tables available and not enough wait staff. Just horrible.

Had a really FAB time. Our waiter was wonderful. Too much Sake BUT that’s why we were there. Kylie turns 12 on 10/5 this was her choice. Her favorite restaurant. The atmosphere was loud but we were louder LOL had a great evening. I just loved loved the salad just plain Japanese dressing . I could have had nothing else. Can’t wait to go back. Making a reservation thru OPEN TABLE works for me

They were 30 minutes late on our reservation, super busy and not enough waitstaff, poorly timed food, I left my credit card in the bill keeper and had unauthorized charges on my card within 20 minutes! Called management to tell them they have thrives for employees and they argued with me. Won’t be going back anytime soon!

Service was really slow. Our food took 45 mins to come out. We didn’t even get the miso soup we ordered. The waitress did regularly check on us but only to tell us that the food was coming. It wasn’t even busy so I didn’t understand.
