    It seems Gyu-Kaku is VERY rigid when it comes to rules. For instance we made a reservation for 4 and we brought a baby along with us the visit before and the hostess made a HuGE deal about having “another human” to the number. It. Was. A. Baby. No big deal but good lord they could not think outside the box AT ALL when it came to that. It was close to being insulting. So take it to this visit, we MADE a reservation for 4:45 and when we got there we had to wait. Now I get it but the rigidness on their end with the prior visit cannot translate to the customer being rigid. I did my due diligence by making my reservation and I expected to go at that time. However this place did not have it ready. First world problem I know. Then when we sat down it was almost impossible to get our grill lit to the point she was literally taking it apart right in front of us. This literally took 14 minutes while there was three other open tables. They could have just moved us then we would not have been in the middle of replacement grill doing. It was absolutely annoying and again it’s like GYU KAKU could not think outside of their narrow box to move us. They even wanted to bring the salad rice and fried chicken out WHILE the grill replacement was going on. I absolutely love the food here but the people make it hard because they cannot think outside of a stupid rule that needs to be given some leniency.

    This was a fun experience for us. We went there on Christmas Day w my sons, 23 and 27 and girlfriends. We had not done anything like this before. There’s a learning curve to cooking your prepared proteins which were delicious. Their fried rice was especially good. The food was delicious. The service helpful to first timers. A good place to celebrate.

    We had a terrible experience. Our one 12 inch grill (for 6 people) kept failing. It had to be re-lit repeatedly. After at least 8 attempts to re-light and the evening 3/4 finished - the manager offered to change out. But we were "done." We ordered the group feast. It was a lot of work (even when the grill was working) to cook the food on 1 little grill. Also, the huge plates of bloody meat were gross. We had to ask for clean plates and tongs to avoid cross contamination. The restaurant was packed - so maybe we are outliers. A working grill and a second grill at our table of 6 could have made a difference. I would suggest avoiding the group feasts and ordering smaller portions of food. We requested our remaining bloody platters of meat be cooked in the kitchen. The manager refused??? Said the kitchen could not altho the fried rice with cooked meat obviously was prepared in the kitchen? The highlight was our server Ghun (spelling?) who managed our frustrations with grace.

    Food was good. Service was great. However, the place was really loud. And the price was really high for the type of food we were getting. Not a good value. Fun to experience once, but I am not certain I would do it again.

    Fair is about as good as I can rate this afternoon out. We had 3 different servers. The initial server took about 10 minutes after we were seated to even show up at our table and she dropped off menus, napkins and plates. She then disappeared and after about another 10 minutes or so another server came and said she would be helping our server out and asked if she’d taken our drinks order. The answer was no, so she took it. We received our drinks and sat so long waiting for someone to come back and take our order. Finally she came back and asked if we wanted appetizers. I wanted one but also knew I’d better go ahead and order our meats or who knew how long before she came back. So we ordered everything. It came out at a decent pace but we had to ask to have the grill lit before we could cook our food. We had to chase them down for a refill and apparently it was the only one we’d be getting. Overall it was a dismal experience and I’m in no rush to return.

    We were stuck on a table at the back right next to their ‘cleaning corner’ though there was plenty of seating available. The servers were literally throwing and banging their trays and things behind us on the floor in the actual aisle. The food was fair-nothing to rave about, no utensils even to serve our corn or mushrooms. It was just one big mess. We couldn’t leave fast enough.

    Favorite place to eat with group of friends! Love the beef and all the sauce! Prices are a little bit higher per person on weekdays. And the gratuities they automatically added to each of us for group of 6 people is ridiculous! My bill is around $54 just for my self and the server added $18 graituity just for me. My friends has the same ridiculous gratuity included! Just found out after we left
