Parking in downtown can be a pain but it's worth the trouble.

I highly recommend the Meat Lover combo, good for 3 ppl!

Waiter never explained that we could get the grill exchanged. Also not very personable service provided. Could have checked in to see if we needed anything during our meal.

Food was good. Service was ok, just took a long time to get the food. It seamed like the heat was broken, very cold inside. Had to keep my jacket on.

Love coming here with friends. The set menus they have for different numbers of people are great. Even after adding some appetizers and drinks, once the bill is split (if you do that) the price is lower than you expect. The food itself is delicious and I love that you get to keep socializing during the experience. It's not sit down, eat, then talk afterwards. You can talk to each other while you cook and eat. Tell your friends which meats/veggies you like. Overall a great experience and always has been anytime we've come to Gyu Kaku

While they didn’t seem too busy, the service was quite slow. It also would have been beneficial to have the server go through the menu.

Clean, warm and inviting atmosphere. Excellent service and delicious food. We had a great experience and would recommend this to anyone who would like to try a fun new dinning experience. A special thank you to Joon the manager who went out of his way to make sure we had an amazing evening.

Went there for lunch, it was my first time every to Gyu-Kaku. I enjoyed my 3 item lunch combo and the server was very helpful, she explained the grill time for the pork belly, short rib beef, etc. She changed my grill one time because I burnt my pork belly a bit. I enjoyed the food, it was very tasty, I look forward to coming back to trying the other items!

The food is always amazing, along with the great service once you are seated.
The only frustrating part is always the beginning of the experience.
It’s incredibly hard to speak to someone on the phone. And once you arrive, there is never a host. We had a reservation for 1:30, but the table wasn’t set up until 1:45/1:50.
Due to the lack of host/hostess, the people behind us had left because visually it seemed like a large line.

It’s probably my 3rd time dining at this location, and it’s been the same. Even with a great dining experience, the first impression has always been lack lustre. If only they could fix that.

Excellent food and fun interactive dining experience, it makes going out to eat more of a fun activity than a mundane boring meal. It can get a little pricey though and is definitely sharing family dinner type food

A great choice for an interactive and very social dining experience! Nothing like cooking food as a group that brings people together. A bit on the pricy side, but the food is delicious. I did find the restaurant temperature a bit cool, so make sure you ask for a table away from the door.

Our service wasn’t really friendly we ask for warm water with lemon on it she came back with hot water very hot and the no lemon. We ordered bimbibap combo we are almost halfway of our food but the soup wasn’t serve until we ask about it. We also tell her where is our lemon? They are also slow when we first came here it was nice and now change especially the price

Food was phenomenal! Great flavour and food came out really quick. Portions are a really good size. Only complaint is that the servers and hosting staff are really unorganized. No one seems to really have a clue what’s going on regarding reservations and seating. Also, they randomly yell at one another and it’s really hard to carry a conversation. I would definitely go back again simply because of the flavour but it is much more casual than I expected. Not somewhere I would go to be romantic.

Amazing experience, was 45 minutes early on my reservation and they were extremely friendly and got me to a table right away as soon as one was available ( which was about ten minutes). Everything was very delicious and very reasonably priced! Will be coming back again soon and many times after that!

Called ahead of time before boking a resovation. Planning to come for my boyfriend and I's anniversary and have the saturday brunch special. I was advised it's still available and booked a table.

Iv come multiple times since opening for the weekend brunch.

We arrived on time , when seated we were told they dont offer the brunch special anymore. This was super fusterating that I was told the wrong information, we decided to go to another resturant.

My friend and I ordered the Premium meat course. Many of the meat dishes had too much fat and were hard to chew. The grill needed to be changed more often but it was changed only once because the servers were too busy. The ice cream dessert was good but too simple for the price we paid for the meal.

The food was good the service was good as well however despite making a reservation we were stuck in a really crappy table just by the kitchen and the garbage bins. it took me awhile to phase that part out it really takes away from the ambiance
