Mother's day lunch was a breeze with a reservation. The service was great! It might be a yearly tradition from now on.

Several places of the seat cover is broken , the metal fire pit has a hole makes the heat quiye uneven....The meat was ok, but too salty. The waitress provided a very good service.

Nothing went well. The grill only 1/2 worked. Service was slow and disorganized, the food just had no flavor. Worst part was the rice was terrible. It was old, stale and hard. No one touched their rice.

Disappointing experience.

Our waitress Nicole was excellent! We all 4 have dietary restrictions & she came back after we ordered to make sure that what we ordered could be made to our needs. The food was excellent but would advise them to cook the veggies b4 serving as they took so long to cook in the tin foil. Plenty parking. You can rsvp online at the web site. You can also join a loyalty program that saved us $$! They also offer all you can eat options!

Walking into the restaurant was so welcoming , we got sat down waiting for about 5 minutes until a waitress came by turned on the grill left it lopsided and left our table without saying one word. We put the grill down as it should be because the flame was a bit high that our four year old could feel the heat. She comes back five mins later telling us that the grill needed to be placed like that because we’re under an ac vent and quickly began to walk away. I called her and asked if we can know who our waitress was because we had already been waiting. She explained it was her and walked away!!!
Waited five minutes for her to walk by and asked for the unlimited menu , brought it and finally asks us what we wanted to drink . I told her we were ready to order but she left to get the drinks . We saw another table and asked to change our seating to a different table. Changed and got out ordering on . Different servers were attending us , she wasn’t really coming to check on us and for couple times we saw her sitting in a booth with another customer carrying a long conversation while were waiting to get refills . Took so long we decided to go home because we were just tired of waiting around another server gave us our check paid and left .
Worst experience ever I thought the service would be better since they’re located in Valencia. 😞
(I have pictures and videos of the poor service)

I booked this table based on my experience in New York, but the restaurant was nothing like Guy Kaku in New York. We didn’t stay, we went to Wokcano instead.

I have been coming to Gyu Kaku for years ! I am saddened to say that this dining experience was by far the worst I have ever experienced. The waitress’ listening skills were horrible. Had to fix our order 3 different times. Didn’t ask clarifying questions when placing orders for our food. Was not attentive at all. The person who took our bill stood over me as I was I was signing the credit card slip and as I was contemplating on how much to leave a tip just stood there making me feel VERY uncomfortable . The waitress and hostess on this specific day and time are not a viable asset to Gyu Kaku .

The food was really good. We were pleased and surprised at the new brunch menu. The price was amazing. The staff was very helpful. The only issue was that the hostess would check in with us asking if we needed anything and if we requested from her we didnt get it. We would have to wait for the waiter or waitress to come and ask them to which we always got it right away.

Always loved this place and go almost every Friday. The change in the menu will take some getting used too. Not my favorite change. Service and energy always has good vibes though.

The best dining experience i’ve had in a long time. The food was delicious, reasonably priced, and the atmosphere was fun and entertaining.

Our party of 3 ate our fill including desert and we’re out the door for 80 bucks plus tip.

Waiter was super rude didn’t really care to wait on our table. We asked him plenty of time for simple water napkins ended up having to ask other workers walking by which were accommodating. His attitude ruined our experience.
