Every single thing we consumed here was delicious! The corn and cheese appetizer was a risk but it was so worth it. I ordered two of the less expensive BBQ beefs and they were so yummy. Even the smoothie was amazing. Waitress took her time to explain all answers to our questions, and they were very COVID mindful.

Disappointed that we didn’t get the outdoor table we had reserved but my husband and I still enjoyed a delicious meal. Great value with the combination meal we ordered!

I made a reservation for 6:30 PM, checked in with the host at 6:25-ish. The host informed me that they need a few more minutes until my table was ready. My boyfriend and I took a seat and waited. A little after 6:35 PM a couple walked through the door, and the same host who checked me in called, "Meghan"? Another couple (who just walked in) followed her without checking in and took our table! I went to the other hosted and asked how long for my table, and she said oh the other person took the wrong person (other person's name was Meggie)! How can the host take the wrong couple when I checked in with that host? On top of that other couple just walked through the door? When the other host spoke to the host that made the mistake, that host just looked at me blanked face. It just showed that host did not care at all (no apology or anything!). My boyfriend and I were not seated until 7:05 PM.

Food was good. Our waitress was very friendly and polite. We went with the premium. My boyfriend who never been there liked the food. We tried all the beef and the pork belly. For veggies we got mushrooms and spinach. We thought the spinach was surprisingly good. For dessert, we shared a scoop of matcha ice-cream (incredible) and both got smores.

As a loyal customer, this visit was one of the best. We had no problems using the coupon, the food came out in a timely manner and was delicious, our waiter was amazing - he knew when we needed to change the grill, and also the drinks were also flavorful. That day was really a 10/10 experience at Gyu-Kaku. We would love to visit again soon.

Great food and service. But really poorly organized and slow to seat people. They took 40 minutes to seat us even though we had a reservation (made days in advance). We were a party of six and saw several sixtops with groups of two and three sitting at them. Really seems like they have a bad system/management. Also don't sign up for their rewards because they will spam you relentlessly.

Our waitress was very attentive to all of our needs, she came to our table constantly to check on our water, how we were enjoying the food, and asked if we had any questions or further needs. The ambiance was great (seeing as I was on a date) my fiancé and I had a wonderful time and it was a lot of fun to cook the food in front of us and share that experience together.

We always go and love it. This was the first time we went around lunch time. We got the fix menu ninja.
I thought the selection was not that great. We didn't like the creamed corn, the meat selection was very fatty, we had to ask for additional meat. The service is always attentive and we really like it, i didn't think the lunch was that great.
