    Valentines course menu. Food overall was good. Didn’t get our soup but not a big deal. The dessert was listed as chocolate fondue but it was chocolate pieces in milk I think and we heated it on grill I disposable aluminum cup. Essentially made cocoa not fondue and mold on one strawberry a turnoff. Server was very nice on a very busy night.

    The food was delicious. We ordered from their special Valentine’s Day menu and it was a ton of food for a good price.

    I dined in a number of Japanese restaurants and this by far is really good. The service was superb and the the price for the meat sets is a fair price. The sets that serve for 2 people can actually serve 3-4. I couldn't finish everything with my gf. This place is a must go if you like to grill your own meats at the table.

    This was our first time back since covid hit last year. Really happy the quality of the meats are still good. Service was good too. The only bummer was that they were out of some beverages and desserts but being that this was the first day they reopened for indoor dining, we totally understood.😊

    it has been a while since the pandemic that we can go back to Gyu KaKu. My reservation was at 8.30 pm, but was not seated until 8.45 pm. The food was good. Hope to have the dine-in soon.

    We had dinner on the patio.  Service, food, wine, beer, Everything was very good. Especially the "Harami" and wine are very satisfying. The patio was comfortable with heating. You can talk quietly without the traffic of nearby cars. We will go there again.

    Good food, just outdoor dining due to corona. And not that many people.

    I went with my boyfriend for my birthday and booked through OpenTable, I did select “birthday” occasion on the app, but the restaurant must not have noticed that so there was nothing special about the dinner. Great service and they were able to seat us sooner than our reservation.
