    Would’ve enjoyed our meal considering we’ve been going to this restaurant for years in Hawaii and was excited to find one in Colorado. If the manager wasn’t hovering over our table the entire meal, making us feel so uncomfortable. We told her many times we knew what we’re doing and she continued to stand at our table watching us and reaching over messing with our grill the entire meal. There was 3 other parties in the entire restaurant and for some reason our server hardly returned to our table and we had to constantly wave her down to get more items, even that took a long time to get back to our table. The only thing that came fast was the check at the end. We left definitely not thinking we got our $52 worth of our meal and service at a table of 4 people. We simply were uncomfortable with the hovering and lack of service.

    It is fun and different from other dining venues. You cook your own meal at the table, after you are provided with the cuts of meat. Very tasty and a lot of food, enough to take home in a bag. We enjoyed it.

    Went for restaurant week and felt like it was a good deal. The marinade was a bit too sweet on the beefbut the 21 day aged beef was delicious and I would get it again. Only real negative is that the ice cream was obviously prescooped and the top have of the scoop was just ice and the bottom half was ice cream.

    Unfortunately, the food was brought to our table all at the same time, making our table extremely crowded and giving us a rushed atmosphere. Food was delicious and the wait staff was trying very hard to keep up.

    Will definitely go back to this restaurant. We got the Meat Variety Course for three. It did not disapoint. All food is well presented, well prepared and ready for you to cook on the bbq grill that's at each table. Its a fun and entertaining dining experience.

S'mores for dessert was perfect. GO check out this phenomenal gem of a spot. We had extraordinary service too. I wish I could remember our server's name. He was wonderful. Will definitely return!

    Unfortunately the food was very mediocre. Our “veggie plate” consisted of 8 slices of zucchini, 2 mushrooms (cut into 1/4), four shishito peppers and gross canned corn. This was for 6 people! There was plenty of meat to go around - but quality was pretty poor. Service wasn’t great - had to ask multiple times for extra napkins, plates, flatware and even beverages. Waiters and waitress acted like we were inconveniencing them, when asked for basic dining necessities. No waiting area - were asked to wait at bar but had to step over several heating elements (for the table grills) that were placed in the middle of the floor. Nothing food-wise was timed normally - overall just a huge letdown for a Cherry Creek restaurant.

    Gyu-Kaku is the world's largest Japanese BBQ restaurant chain with 800 restaurants around the world. It is therefore not your typical Cherry Creek faux-fancy joint. It is closer to a high end version of Outback Steakhouse than to any version of the Palm but it has Wagyu beef on the menu and Japanese standards for quality, which far exceed those of US fast casual dining. Gyu-Kaku has the self-grill at your table, which is how most of the high quality ingredients are cooked, though they make it pretty difficult to hold hands with your date during the meal. The decor of the restaurant is pretty unimaginative and, frankly, the nice wooden booths/tables are a little worse for wear on account of all the cooking utensils scratching them up. The quality of the food was quite good but it's only for a casual night out with friends willing to grill, watch and time their own food preparation, not for date night.

    This was our 2nd visit. The first was excellent. The second, not so much. Food was just ok. Some meat was very fatty and tough. Service was extremely rushed - pushing courses on the table when it was already still quite full. Burner stopped working mid meal.
