Our waitress was kind. Things started off a bit slow but she definitely rectified that with great attentive service. The food was great meat seasoned well and the garlic rice is delicious! We will be back.

The food was great. However the service was a little slow. We received all our appetizers and rice way before we even received the main dish. We sat waiting we sat waiting for the check for over 20 minutes

There were four of us and we ordered the "yakiniku", which is a standard menu for four. Food and service were great, and the standard menu was more than enough food and variety.

We did the all you can eat which had a 90 minute time limit. Our servers would take forever to bring us our food or to take our order for more food. And one server didn’t even bring out what we ordered. We had to order it several times in order to get it and by then, the 90 minute time limit was up.

They were busy but my order took 30 mins to arrive.
Been there a few times and they were great, maybe this time is a one off. Definitely recommend food is good and good place to socialize.

The only complaint I have is that the garlic noodles with chicken that I ordered was too wet, too much sauce. I had to send it back to be recooked. Other than that, service was OK and the food was good.

First of all every table seems to be separated by a partition. Felt extremely safe in the age of Covid.

Once again it did not disappoint. Such a variety on the menu for anyone. Love, love the garlic noodles.

Service was spot on.

There was a long wait even with a reservation. We had two different servers. The first one was just plain rude. The quality of the meat wasn’t that great like before.

I’m a regular and it seems there are new staff that are struggling to replicate the usual experience. I’ve never given anything but “5’s” before. Ymmv.

Details:
- could barely understand his English (I’m also Asian)
- had trouble finding reservations, told us we had to wait 20 min
- didn’t know how to make some of the local “off menu” drinks
- had trouble lighting grill several times.
- made a few weird off color remarks to my date (he was gay so they were more over familiar kind of comments rather than harassment)

Their reservation system is pointless. We waited for a table for an hour WITH a reservation. Everyone was complaining about their wait. We even called for the manager and he offered no help or accommodation. He had the same response as the host, "we don't know when you'll be seated." The service was lacking. The raw meat came out quick enough, but no one checked on drinks or alcoholic beverages, and we had to wait 30 min to get a glass of water. We had birthday fun despite all this, but would not return.

Way too slow. Showed up early to reservation but didn’t get seated until over 20 minutes past reservation. After being seated, service was especially slow considering it wasn’t too busy. Lastly they take forever to serve you which doesn’t make sense when they are serving you raw meat. Even though the food is good I probably won’t go back.

The greeters at the door were helpful and got me seated quickly. But the were not prepared for the reservation I made. They were fumbling all over the place getting menus, bowls and tongs together.

Bathrooms were super dirty and the floors were sticky. Like they mopped it with soda. The tables and sauce bottles were slimy feeling. Like they were cleaned with a dirty rag.

The food tasted good. But the quantity to cost was low. I was expecting more for the price.

It was a loud place. We heard the staff sing the birthday song 4 times. Super annoying and kills the vibe. The birthday song needs to be stopped.

Great concept but it needs improvement. Maybe better staffing. Especially for the location.

Gyu-Kaku needs to improve or we will stop dining there. They did not have proper utensils (saying they had no afternoon dishwasher). They provided us styrofoam cups and plastic forks. When we asked why the shredded cabbage salad tasted off we were told that it’s because the cook is new.

Tasty! I would go back again and again if I lived closer, and already recommended to some friends. Spicy pork, shredded garlic cabbage, and egged-up rice make a wonderful lunch.

Dinner with my kids. The food was good. The only thing is services wasn’t as great. The waiter/waitress only come by when we call. No one checked in on us until the end of the meal. Overall, we got used to this location service.
