    Everything was good my son loved the experience but a $150 bill quickly turned to $330 when the parking people put a boot on your car when it says retail parking and a small at code sign you are suppose to scan to register your car… sooooo yea. A first time experience went sour. They need to put more signs for parking regulations

    We came for our anniversary and had an amazing dining experience, amazing service and delicious food. The staff truly works as a team to make sure all customers are taken care of. They were SLAMMED (Saturday evening right after Valentine’s Day) and made sure both small and large parties alike were tended to. Thank you for continuing to be our favorite place to dine!!!

    Food was good, but given that it’s a Japanese BBQ spot, there’s a lot of moving parts the staff have to cover. Took a while to get seated and place our order, but kind of understand given the cuisine type. Would recommend going if you’re not in a rush!

    My husband & I wanted to try something new for Valentine’s day and Gyu-Kaku did not disappoint. They were so busy, but the service was absolutely wonderful. I also have a severe food allergy which they were able to accommodate. We will definitely be back!

    They charge you 40$ more than the normal course meal they provide if you go on Valentine’s Day. A total waste of money and time, there are plenty of bbq places in the area that are cheaper for more meat with the same quality. I genuine felt like I wasted my money and time with my partner and ruined my valentines dinner. The rave reviews are definitely from people who haven’t experienced other bbq places in the area.

    Took my friend here for her birthday and we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. We enjoyed the at table cooking and the food had great flavor. I would like to see them add a “build your own” course to the menu……selected menu items that the guest can customize. The cocktails mostly have a sweet flavor profile so beware if like us sweet is not your zhoosh. Overall, we had a great time and I would definitely go again!

    It was an overall okay experience, I just wish the waiter would’ve been more helpful with the cooking times. For the time limit, I expected him to come back more often than he did to ask what we wanted instead on actually running out of food to cook. The drinks were great, I loved the sake and I wish I could’ve tried the green tea ice cream, but they were out.

    My visit to Gyu-Kaku yesterday was a very unexpected and nice surprise. It was Christmas Day and they were open, so we thought we’d give it a try. I had enjoyed Korean barbecue before, but this Japanese barbecue blew me out of the water. Everything was so amazing. I went with a friend and so we ordered the chefs choice, which is about $90 for two people and well worth every penny. Everything that came to the table was amazing. The salad was perfection. The bibimbap rice is unbelievable. The best thing I have eaten in a while. The ribeye, marinades, the sauces... everything was phenomenal. The miso soup is the best miso soup I’ve ever had.
