    This is a great social eating experience. Talking while you cook your own food! The hardest part is deciphering the menu. If you're a party of 3 or more, just pick one of the party combos and it's much more manageable. The fried rice is delicious, especially if you let the rice heat on the outside edge of the bowl!!

    I frequent gyu kaku at least once every two weeks and have showed many friends, spent thousands. Since moving from Los Angeles this restaurant has been a nice retrieve from the lack of variety in New Orleans. Typically the service, food, and everything is normally stellar. This last visit though was all but that. We had reservations for my mother and I and the grill just simply did not work, I wouldn’t have been able to roast a Marshmellow. We put the mushroom order on the grill when we got there, the mushrooms weren’t bubbling in the foil or even steaming, much less cooked after 20 minutes. We asked about the grill 3 times until the manager-Tony came out and basically told us he saw nothing weird with the grills. He said he’d only been working a month. I informed him I frequent this location and that this is not how the grills are supposed to work, then he asked if I ever ate at that table and said maybe that’s just the table, which I have and even have Instagram archive of that table. He then said he’s never had an issue with other patrons. I showed him how the grill didn’t even sizzle the meat much less char it in the slightest. He then challenged us and told us we had only just got there, I reminded him we’ve been there and grill on for 30 minutes, tested the meat again. I wish I could post the video. A sidewalk on a sunny day in New Orleans would’ve cooked the meat better. He then said he couldn’t give us another table right away because other people had reservations, mind you half the tables were empty. I get it, maybe they were over staffed. He then suggested we sit there and just be patient and let the meat cook slowly. I told him, that’s not how you cook meat, that’s not Japanese bbq. I then told him I’m fine with leaving, he said okay and had no apologies.

    This place was the best food I had here in New Orleans. It was so good. I loved the garlic fried rice and the short ribs. The garlic spinach was amazing. Our waitress was very kind and helpful but I can’t remember her name. They had a vodka strawberry lemonade and it was delicious.

    My daughter requested to eat there since she love to cook the cook herself and she witness her father happy bday singing by the waiters ? She wanted the same. I put on my reservations it was a bday party once we got there before drinks I told the waiter it was her bday when the meal was about to finish and they brought the dessert I asked again Once I didn’t see anything I asked the waiter if the still sing happy bday and he told no after covid, weird since my husband bday was is march 2021 and they did When we were leaving I ask the hostess if they sang happy bday and she told me yes The waiter lie and just didn’t wanted to go the extra mile for an 11 year old We will never be dinning there again Horrible customer service

    We made our reservation for 8pm. Everything was nice, it was a celebration of our anniversary we’ve came here before and loved the vibe and experience. But this time we were greeted by our server everything was cool but as we were cooking our food and enjoying our time it’s like she was coming over to rush us thru everything especially about the sauces on the table. We finished cooking everything and started eating well she came back around and was asking if we needed boxes and we weren’t even done eating no where near done. She left and came back then asked were we ready for our dessert. I love this place but being rushed was the most irritating thing ever. Great experience but I was very disappointed in being rushed.

    Upon arrival we were greeted by an unpleasant confused and even more unfriendly host.. We had reservations for 730.. arrived at 720.. It appeared that there was a problem with our reservation. Not sure, couldn't say. We were seated around 740. Around 755 I had to grab a food runner and ask if someone could take our drink and appetizer order... 10 minutes later a super nice young man approached us and looked overwhelmed.. He did his best to take our entire order at that moment.. So we did.. a few minutes later we get our drinks then shortly after the Miso soups.. .THE WORST Miso soup I've ever tasted in my life.. we pushed them to the side because they tasted like water with little ingredients added.. The young server took them and agreed that majority of the customers do not like the soup.. He further stated that the Miso soup is poured from some sort of dispenser and not out of a pot and he doesn't care for it himself.. However, we got the meat lovers special and the food was delicious. The staff were very helpful with instructions on cooking times for what meats as well recommendations of what to choose.. I understand these harsh times with restaurants being understaffed so that is forgiven. They may want to have a chat with their host to atleast act like she likes her job. Maybe she had a bad day but I doubt that was the case. Management may want to be careful with overbooking cuz when you're Hangry! It's very hard to be patient.. For the Love of God fix that recipe to that Miso Soup!!! Was as honest as I could be.. yes we'll be back...

    We celebrated a birthday here for dinner. The experience was great and we enjoyed preparing our own beef steaks and other items. The food came out in intervals so you had time to talk and socialize a bit. Perfect for small families to share a meal. A little pricey but not something you would do every week so it was worth it. The waitress was accommodating and kept the drinks and food coming. Overall a good time.

    Food was delicious as always, but for whatever reason this visit we received our hot sides before we received our raw meats. We sat there for a good 10-15 minutes with hot rice and noodles and no meat to cook. When we asked our server, she said the kitchen was behind, and it was immediately brought to the table. I love Gyu Kaku and will definitely still be back, just a small hiccup this time!
