We ordered the prime grade short rib, but it was very tough, not prime grade. We also ordered the Angus short rib and they didn’t both to trim off the thick connective tissues, making it very chewy. And they were out of pork belly and bacon chips. Will try again, but if it’s like this again, it will be our last visit.

They seem not to value your business and remind you that you have to finish your meal in 90 minutes or less. Why does it matter if a customer continues to order food and drinks to increase your average check amount? Isn't Gyu-Kaku all about an experience?

Overall great restaurant for a group of 12 even if it was a tight squeeze and the value of the meals was worth. Would recommend a smaller party but large party work great too. Just make sure you make space for the plates/bowls coming through cause they take up a lot of space.

I dropped off my wife and daughter a couple of minutes before our reservation time and went to find parking -- which turned out to be 3-4 blocks away. When I reached the restaurant, they still had not been seated because the restaurant has a policy of not seating a party until everyone has arrived. Additionally, they informed my wife and daughter, and then me, that there was a 90-minute time limit at a table. It reminded me of the 30-minute limit McDonald's used to have at their restaurant near the D.C. bus station. This made me feel unwelcome even though we had no intention of spending 2+ hours there. While we managed to have a good-enough time, I'm in no hurry to go back.

I said I’m from Peru and she said oh! That’s what I thought because of your name and last name? I didn’t know the all Peruvians last name were the same :-/ I felt disrespected the fact that she was continuing asking were my husband and child were from. After that they make us share the table with another seated party but they were so loud I couldn’t even listen to my server, my server was very good and dedicated at the end of our meal the greeter came back to inform us that the 90min were up in my mind I was surprised because we were never greet right immediately and our food never came right away besides that my husband was impressed how she request the table back, when I check the time was about to be 90min after they move us and an out server came to greet us… very disappointed but the food is good.

Took a while to get us seated (we had reservations) and took even longer to take our order. Our son didn’t get his drink until it was almost time to go. And food took so long to come out we didn’t bother ordering more. We didn’t get Everything we ordered either, but luckily they didn’t even add it to the bill.

They had something on the menu for everyone. I highly recommend a virgin mocktail, it’s $4 and absolutely perfect. Also recommend the spicy tofu, the Ninja table order, and happy hour lunch. We came in with a party of four and they were very accommodating. The service was impeccable. Hands down to our server for being so considerate, efficient, and very knowledgeable about the options/recommendations. The ambiance is private enough that you have your own section, but still feel involved in the general room. We loved it so much, we are planning on going back again today with a different group 😅

We had the “all-you-can-eat” lunch that came with a 90 minute time limitation. At the beginning the food came real quick but at one point we were waiting for like 20 minutes to get the meat to come to our table. I think the service could’ve been better especially when they asked us to finish the meal within 90 minutes.
