    Food is good. Service is good and not pushy. Fair food prices. The only downside is reservation. So far my experience in reservations is 50/50. I have experience on arriving for reservation and having a table and arriving for reservation and not have a table available. I also don't think the place easily accessible to people with specific physical impairment.

    Food and service was really good but the AC was broken and it was extremely uncomfortably hot especially with the grill on. We would have picked a different day if we knew.

    Our table got the 4 person bbq course - YAKINIKU I believe. It was fairly good with a good amount of meats, cuts, and appetizers. Drinks were decently priced. Service was great, waiter was very attentive. Noise and ventilation could be better, but waiter said they’re working on it.

    The all you can eat has a good combination of small plate apps and food options. Do not get the cold tofu, unless you’re into it. The best orders were the shrimp, chicken, spring rolls and s’mores

    Good food that you BBQ yourself, making for an enjoyable shared experience. The server (Adam) was friendly, informative, and unobtrusively attentive. The special for 2 was lots of food for 3 moderate eaters. The music was loud enough, though, to make conversation a bit challenging.

    We had an amazing first experience at Gyu-Kaku (81 Church St.)! Our server was Jamie and she was absolutely fantastic; she was friendly, helpful with the menu and super sweet! Our food was delicious and super fresh, everything we tried then became our new favourite. The staff kept our waters full and our table clear of garbage and empty plates. It was honestly one of the best dining experiences I've had!

    ==UPDATED 27 FEB 2022== [Lowered from 5 to 3 stars] I would rate this day's service as 1-star, food as 4-stars. This was our third time in this outlet. The first two times, we were served by Kaoru and had a lovely experience. Unfortunately, our third time was not to be. The food remains relatively good value, and quality is good. But the service from a different server was poor. We could not find her when we needed her. Tea wasn't topped up. We couldn't place new food orders promptly. And she constantly engaged her coworkers in conversation. There is nothing wrong with that if she would still check on guests from the corner of her eyes. That didn't happen though. We felt she was cross with us for having to serve us. Kinda punishing over a meal. I hate to drop 2 stars over the service. Sorry. ==31 DEC 2021 + Earlier 2021== [5-stars for Kaoru!] Excellent service from Kaoru. She was attentive and provided very warm service. Food is very good. Great quality beef. Shrimp was amazing. Salad was good. Broccoli with cheese fondue was great. We chose the Chef Selection $92 set and was very pleased with it. Portions just enough for 2 people.

    Our server Margarita from Russia was not attentive, she bring all of our food at once when there is not enough room on the table to accommodate the plates. We asked her bring each plate gradually but she didn’t reply. When she cleared the plates, raw meat juice dripped on our cooked food. She did not return until she brought out bill. We were told we had 2 hours at the table were rushed out at the 75 min mark. It is too bad, we enjoyed this restaurant many times in the last few years but will not be returning again

    I was quite confused. I thought it was a Japanese restaurant but it was Korean. Food is not exceptional. All you can eat but not really exceptional. No complimentary side dishes. Arrived at 5:30 as per our reservation and no one was there to meet us. I had to go to inside to look for someone to take us to our seats. However the manager was very prompt in reminding us that we had to leave because the next guests have arrived. Our server Laura was very cordial and hospitable. Kudos to her.
