We had a party of 7 yesterday. The service was beyond any decent standard. We have been waiting for hours to get our food served (we had the "All you can eat Premium" menu). It's probably not the fault of the staff as it was obvious that they were understaffed. An example: We had to ask at least 5 times to simply get a glass of water filled! How complex is that! Add to this the high level of the (horrible) music being played (we had to ask multiple times to tune down the volume before it went down to an acceptable level where we could at least talk to each other!) and you can get a feeling of our evening.

Overall experience was really terrible and I'm not going back there anytime soon.

Food is always great but this location didn’t offer sauce so for people going for the first time how would they know to ask for it if it isn’t offered. Also, it was extremely loud at this location, the workers were yelling stuff out to each other in Japanese and I could barely hear myself talk.

Food was OK. Wish they had more non-meat options. Tables were too small. A but pricey for the food and service.

We have not been to Gyu-Kaku in over a year due to the Pandemic and were so excited to be able to eat in one of our favorite restaurants. We were greeted by friendly hostess, had a great table and a fantastic waitress!
Food was absolutely delicious and the Smore's dessert was a nice end to our delicious meal.
We will be back sooner than later!

This is my boyfriend’s favorite restaurant so we go here often. Everything was great we haven’t been back since the pandemic. Now with the pandemic there’s temperatures checks, social distance and everything is sanitized after. I still love here.

The food and service were good as usual. When we received our check there were items on it that we had not ordered. The matter was quickly resolved so more complaints to offer.

I've heard about this restaurant numerous people therefore I decided to try them out. I made reservations for 8:45pm and I arrived on time. The host was gracious however they were not ready to seat me. Had to wait in the cold for almost half an hour before being seated. Afterwards, I was sitting alone for 20 minutes before I took the initiative and call out to someone assist me. He was good and gave good recommendations. However it took very long time before my order came to before grilled. That is unacceptable because honestly i thought they forgot about me and I had mentioned that to the helpers brought the food cause assumed since I was dining alone. The food was delicious but service needs great improvement. I do not spending money on good food however quality of service needs to be better.

Great concept. Great value. The prices were quite reasonable ,and the food was overall well seasoned and flavorful. Staff was attentive.

In particular, the staff have made strong efforts to be mindful of restrictions imposed by COVID 19. Time limts, masks, single use condiments and dickered were all present. I felt very safe there.

Our Server was Christian. My fiancé and I have been coming here for years sometimes with my son. This is the first time my son has been able to recognize the excellent service you provide and told me to give you guys 5 stars lol. He’s only 10. I will admit tonight’s service was extraordinary compared to previous visits.

Poor service by server who tried to overcharge me assuming I wouldn't realize that. The food was great, specially the prime sirloin. Overall the meat was very good. Garlic rice was burnt and not tasty and the portion was too big for 1 person (server did not alert us).
Now what I have to complain is the service of the server we received.
First of all he was OK, he would disappear for more than 10min sometimes (I try to understand since it was busy) but it took a long time for us to get the white rice, the meats , etc. We waited with no food at all for around 15min until he brought broccoli and then salad... later on the meats began arriving.
We never got the corn and cheese that was ordered. My pineapple juice took a very long time to arrive, I had to ask for it several times.
But the worst thing was the fact that he brought the check charging for the all you can eat fee with an additional $21 for 3 orders of $7 shrimp. That is included in the all you can eat menu and we ate all the shrimp we ordered.
I asked a different server what that was about (since our server had disappeared) she went ask our server and he came back and told me that he would charge for the left over rice and garlic rice ($7 + $3) and I told him ok. He didn't mention anything about the $21 shrimp that he charged for nonreason at all. I asked him so what about the shrimp ???? He didnt even apologize and replied that he would take it out. Why didn't he charge the right amount in the first place and explained us clearly what he would charge for leftover instead of charging the wrong and higher amount without saying anything?? For me it feels like he was trying to take advantage of us and I didn't like that at all. Honesty and transparency would be appreciated. Me and my friends left the place feeling very sad about the episode. We drove 50 min only to be treated that way.
