    I didn’t like feeling as rushed as I did because of one of the servers. Don’t go late night otherwise risk feeling like your meal is being rushed and your conversation constantly interrupted because they ask to take an empty plate or two that’s at the edges of the table for that specific reason. The food was great as always and my date night wasn’t as bad as the experience with the server rushing us. Being a customer for Gyu-Kaku as long as I have, I’d prefer going to the one in Flushing instead.

    Best Japanese BBQ in NYC. Select of BBQ meats is outstanding. And they use a great marinade that puts them over the top. Very helpful server too.

    We opted for the Wagyu course for two. While the Korean-style fried chicken pleasantly surprised us with its crispy exterior and juicy, tender meat, the Wagyu beef fell short of our expectations. Having experienced Wagyu beef in Japan, this didn't quite measure up. On a positive note, our server was exceptionally friendly and helpful.

    Overall experience was okay. The restaurant wasn’t full and still didn’t get good service. Waiter didn’t come often to make sure we had all we needed had to ask other workers for help. Food was okay downtown location has better service and food.

    We enjoyed our food alot- waiting for 30 minutes for a server to come over wasnt fun, but when we did get one it was a good experience. My 10 year old loved cooking his own meats, and the all you can eat package was perfect for us.

    The only thing I don’t like about Gyu is that they bring out everything at once. Nothing is ever coursed . Our waiter was “ok” but the trainee was super attentive and paid attention to details . He will be a good asset to your team.

    It is pricey bu tyo uget a lot of food. Unforutnately our grill didn't work well, we were told 45 to 60 seconds per side for meat and needed to leave it on a lot longer. Once the food was delivered it was hard to find a server to get help. Can't say I'd go back givne the cost vs. quality of food/service.

    Once we got our table, it was amazing! The service and the food was unforgettable! We had a reservation for which we arrived 5 minutes early and were quoted a 10 minute wait time. We did not get our table for an hour. That’s my only complaint. What’s the point of a reservation?

    I love this place. We always enjoy our meal here. Last night service was slower than usual. But very friendly. I don’t know why the hostess kept telling everyone it’s a 45 min sit down time. Obviously it took us as long as it did and noone rushed us out. Food - great! We will come back
