    The food is amazing and delicious as expected as I have been to Gyu-Kaku many times. However, it was very apparent our server was trying to rush our dinner to get us out very quickly. We had our reservation at 7:45pm and the last call was at 8:30pm… also meaning food will no longer be served after this point. I had ordered one of the large group packages they offered which is supposed to be a 1.5-2hour dinner service that came to be 45 minutes… for a meal of $170+ I would have liked to enjoy my experience. If their expectation is to have all the food out by 8:30pm then they shouldn’t allow a 7:45pm reservation or should have informed me. It is also noted online their last seating time is at 8:30pm which does not make sense why their last call would be at 8:30pm? We felt like we had to chow down our food.

    Came for lunch. Great cuts of meat for the BBQ grill. The lunch options were filling and we literally rolled out for $30/person. We could have ordered less and still have been quite satisfied. Service was attentive. Our favourite was the beef tenderloin, pork toro and the marinated beef toro. Also the seaweed soup and the salad were both really tasty. Normally we don't bother with them but the salad was excellent.

    If you enjoy table cooking this is the place! I'd think it's good for multiple people to socialize, cook and eat together. We normally go for their set since we can't eat that much (They also have All You Can Eat Option). Their set that's said to be for 2 people, we struggle to finish with 3 people. They also have daily alcohol special which seems like a good deal.

    Restaurant was so hot, it felt like I was in a sauna. Reservation was for 6:45, and we didn't even get a glass of water until 7:22. Service was really slow. Disappointed.

    Food is good. Service is good and not pushy. Fair food prices. The only downside is reservation. So far my experience in reservations is 50/50. I have experience on arriving for reservation and having a table and arriving for reservation and not have a table available. I also don't think the place easily accessible to people with specific physical impairment.

    Our table got the 4 person bbq course - YAKINIKU I believe. It was fairly good with a good amount of meats, cuts, and appetizers. Drinks were decently priced. Service was great, waiter was very attentive. Noise and ventilation could be better, but waiter said they’re working on it.

    The all you can eat has a good combination of small plate apps and food options. Do not get the cold tofu, unless you’re into it. The best orders were the shrimp, chicken, spring rolls and s’mores

    Good food that you BBQ yourself, making for an enjoyable shared experience. The server (Adam) was friendly, informative, and unobtrusively attentive. The special for 2 was lots of food for 3 moderate eaters. The music was loud enough, though, to make conversation a bit challenging.
