    I love Gyu! Especially this location! A little disappointed they didn’t have the all you could eat option on the weekend, but it was delicious nonetheless. The meat was perfectly marinated and the shrimp was fresh-tasting (without that tap water taste). Not my first time dining here and certainly not my last!

    I have visited all locations and this one is by far the worst location. Their tables have a terrible smell that I had to use my personal sanitizing wipes to clean it. The bathroom was disgusting! My server was not attentive at all and I had to call out to her for her to come to my table. The food and drinks were good

    The food took awhile to come out for us to grill.. also I found it quite rude for the server to circle the tip scale on our bill, the service wasn’t even that spectacular for the “suggested tip” scale. Not sure if there will be a next time..

    Instead of ordering a preset meal, we chose our own appetizers, sides and main meats. The marinated meats were especially flavorful. The Harami skirt steak in the pot was great. The prime rib was tender and tasty.

    The service made the experience terrible. We didn’t even get the miso soup that came with our meal and I had to ask someone else for it and just told them to put it Togo. We had two servers? But never checked on us. Never refilled our drinks and gave us the dessert and check without asking which sometimes I don’t mind but it seemed like they were rushing us. Probably won’t be back

    We always come and eat here when we’re in town. Food is great and it’s fun. The kids enjoy cooking. This time we sat where there was a cold draft and it seem to be blowing our flame around so it wasn’t not even cooking on the grill. Also I’ve been there twice within a month and the bathroom could use some attention. Other than that food and service is great!

    A little disappointed, I was expecting a more Japanese experience. Beef was just OK and there was a limited drink available here. No shiitake and enoki mushroom. Dipping sauce was a bit lacking. Rice wasn’t good, was dry.

    The service was incredibly slow to begin with. Looked like they were short staffed. The busser kept coming to our table with dirty dishes from other tables in the middle of our dinner. The harami steak felt like it was chewy and not tender like it previously tasted which made me question the quality of the meat. After we received our rice bowl the server forgot to bring the spicy paste and mix it in for us. After reminding her 2 more times the paste finally arrived but we had completed our dinner. Not sure what caused this incompetence last night, but we are regulars and were so disappointed last night.

    First our server and our food and experience were amazing while dining. It was fun to grill our food and try the different kinds of meat. The s’mores at the end were really fun as well. Now for the bad part. At the very get-go they asked me for service dog tags. These do not exist in the service dog world also it does not exist and is against the ADA law is asking people for proof of paperwork. We don’t walk around with paperwork at the ready with our dogs. When I tried to explain this to the manager he was extremely curt and indifferent about even learning what the law is. All of them at the door and the manager account saying we have to ask this it’s our policy. I said to them it is illegal to ask me for paperwork for my service dog and there are no such thing as service dog tags. I then said you can call Chicago PD and they will come down here and tell you the same exact thing. At that point he turned around and shrugged me off and didn’t care. Why do I have to be made to feel like that it starts off my meal crappy and I’m with two friends from out of town doesn’t really look good for Chicago does it? Thank God our server and the people that were with her were just pleasant and super nice people that made our experience much better. Please inform your restaurant and staff that this is illegal and if I come in there again and it happens again I will have them call Chicago PD just to get it through to them that I’m not just making this up. It’s extremely uncomfortable and shameful to be made to feel like I don’t belong there with my working animal that helps me every single day. Every time someone discriminates against me and my working dog I make a mental note of it because I don’t want other people to go through this so I try to educate but your staff clearly didn’t care.
