It was our first time to visit to Gyu-Kaku UWS. The restaurant was very clean and liked the layout. The service was a bit slow, maybe our server was covering many tables, but she was helpful and pleasant. The food was good.

We are fans of Gyu Kaku and the service they provide. Food and drinks are always great and the kids like cooking. One of my favorite places to dine at in the city.

Everything started out fine. We were seated promptly with a reservation. We appreciated the smokeless grills. The experience went downhill when the server took our order and then went MIA for 45 minutes. Apparently, he moved to a different section in the restaurant but failed to tell anybody including us. The meats were of pretty good quality except for the filet mignon. There were brown spots but the maitre d' insisted that it was perfectly normal. We still beg to differ and we didn't want to ask for a replacement which might have taken another 45 minutes. Our original server's colleague did step in eventually so we were grateful he did. We will try other Gyu-Kaku locations in the future.

It may be be korean to make your own taco with the lettuce around the barbeque, which they did not do as I had come to expect - still, everything was tasty, the tofu soup, the 2-person barbeque I recommend

Service was horrible usually service at gyu is horrible but it was worse than ever before. My waitress was gone the entire time to the point where I thought she was off her shift. Also it took 15 minutes for anyone to even greet meet at my table.

Good was delicious but portions very small, I guess that was why they were called small plates lol
There was a little bit of a language issue when communicating with our server when it came to ordering but overall service was very good

Much regard to PJ. He was very hospitable. Happy we have a Gyu closer to us in the UWS. I do wish the lunch menu listed ALL the Happy Hour options, not just a selected. I did enjoy the broader HH menu presented at the Cooper St location, where I have been attending for so many years now.
