                        We visited New Orleans for 5 days and thought we’d try some more exotic fare at Gyu-Kaku for our last night. What a huge mistake. The miso soup looked like dish water and was tasteless. The salad was bland and underdressed. The meats were very tough. It was like trying to eat beef jerky with chop sticks. Even the Sake was bad—it was flavored with some sort of pineapple. This was literally the worst meal we had in recent memory. Stay away from this place.

                        Unfortunately due to covid, they didn’t have all-you-can-eat… and when ordering a la cart, no side dishes either… kind of defeats the purpose of going there. Will be calling to confirm ayce next time.

                        Max, our waitress, was great. Attentive, but efficient. Food was good. Some cuts were a bit tough, but good flavor. Karaage wasn’t very good, but salad was delightful. Asahi beer was nice and cold. All-in-all a solid place for dinner. Would go again without hesitation.

                        I Arrived at the restaurant early, hostess checked my proof of vaccination. I had a reservation for 2 but my dining partner cancelled on me. She sat me at a smaller both right away My server Justin came by shortly and took my drink order. He asked for my ID (I ordered the house cold Nigiri). and noticed that my birthday was 3 days earlier. After getting my drinks, I ordered Shishito peppers with a Ponzu sauce, toro beef, prime kalbi ribs, pork belly, and rice. He recommended the hangar steak and tan negi which I agreed. The peppers, negi and rice came out first which was great as he made sure I wasn’t overloaded with plates as he spread the time between other platters of meat. I ordered a lot and knew that I would be taking some leftovers home. Justin checked on me often to make sure I was happy and to check the condition of my grill grate. I ended up eating 1/2 the amount and asked Justin for take home containers for the sauces, rice and meat. As I finished packing up my leftovers, Justin and a big portion of the crew came by my table to sing me a happy birthday along with a bowl of green tea ice cream with cookies. It was a great surprise and appreciated as my dinner companion was supposed to be there to help me celebrate which I ended up doing on my own. Overall, Justin and crew is what made for a special occasion, of course my meal was delicious as always as I would expect from Gyu-Kaku. I’ve eaten at this location twice now and plan many more visits while I’m the area.

                        My husband and I celebrated Valentine’s Day here and we had a lovely time! Max our waitress was on point and didn’t miss a beat! Everything was brought out in a timely manner. We enjoyed cooking our food on the grill! All of the meats were tasty and drinks were good! Dining during happy hour was a plus! Ambiance was romantic and private as we were sitting in a corner table area kind of secluded from everyone else and it was perfect! We will definitely be back!

                        OMG! The food was delicious, the drinks were delicious (& half off for happy hour), the ambiance was very calming as well. It’s honestly a wonderful vibe & super fun date idea to try something new :)

                        Came to New Orleans for the first time in 17 years with my wife for a quick pre-Valentine’s Day weekend stay. Booked and changed a couple of times to make sure we could visit Gyu-Kaku in addition to our French Quartet experience. We were not disappointed as the food quality, portions and service were all above par. It looks like another Gyu-Kaku date will be in our future again.

                        The food was delicious, but the service was below average. We were seated on time for our 8pm reservation. At 9pm, we were informed by the server that the next course would come with to-go containers and that we needed to cook our food quickly. Note: the restaurant closes at 10pm. We felt that the service was rushed because we were the last table in the restaurant, even though they were still open for another hour. Overall, we were extremely disappointed in the service and will not be returning to this location.

                        Great service. We were quickly served. We ordered beer (HH price) and chef’s favorite as dinner that came with soup, salad, rice and lots of different kinds of meat. Definitely a lot of food for 2 people. However, we thought everything was on the sweet side. Great if you love sweet, but a bit too much for our taste.
