Gyu-Kaku - Chicago, IL | Lakeview
Everything about this place was amazing! The food, the options, the ambiance, our server was so sweet and welcoming. I'm definitely coming back. 10/10 would recommend.
I came for my moms birthday. We were seated right away, but We sat for over 20 minutes before someone came to wait on our table. I had to constantly ask over and over for our drinks and a high chair. I would say I had to ask about 4 or 5 times. After we finally got our food no one came to check on us I had to ask a man who was serving Other table for assistance he said he would let our waitress know but she still never showed up. The restaurant was not that busy for its horrible service. This is my third time coming to this restaurant and the second time we had bad service!
Very good service, great food!
Spencer he are the best server and manager he the best too good luck
Each time me and my husband go to this place it’s a wonderful time. The green tea cake is to die for.
We had the Samurai and it was exceptional, except the pork with spicy Korean chili sauce wasn’t as good as we expected it to be.
Food was little too salty and feels like they use too much butter on everything. Chair for our table was sticky. Thinking I will try different location next time
Food was great. However, there were four different items that we attempted to order that were out of stock. One of which we were not told was out, until the end of the meal when we mentioned to our server that we never received it.
Love this place and it’s a great value! Dinner for three was under $60. It’s fun and different. A great experience.
Great restaurant. Server Emmy was great. I’ll be back definitely
Food was good but the service was extremely lacking. The table wasn’t ready and instead of telling us she was going to get a chair, our hostess just walked away, leaving the menus in the table. I didn’t receive water until I asked multiple times, and they just kept bringing all of the food without regard to our table being extremely full or at what point of the meal we were in. I won’t be returning to this location.
Great! Have enjoyed multiple times, and hope to again.
A must try for anyone contemplating going to this restaurant. It was outstanding!
Wasn't sure what to expect, but the food and service were excellent! Will definitely be back!
I've been here many times, and food is always good. The service is ok, but this time had the best service. Antonio's service was excellent.
The best part of Gyu Kaku was the variety of meats. Also, the pricing was very affordable! I picked the angus ribs, garlic beef ribs, and skirt steak. Additionally, I chose to add the $3 house sake and the green tea ice cream for dessert.
In short, the experience was amazing. I went in with family and we thoroughly enjoyed the quality of the meats. Very fatty and full of flavor. The ability to dial in the amount of char, as well as achieve the perfect medium-rare is nothing short of astounding.
I recommend this experience for anyone that has had Korean BBQ and wants to go somewhere different. For some reason, Gyu Kaku has it right...just enough variety and great quality!
First time here and it was absolutely amazing. My wife and I have gone to other Asian bbq spots but this place is completely amazing. Food, drinks and ambience was perfect for date night. I spent almost 200 dollars at other places and was still hungry without getting dessert or drinks and this was just little over 100
This is the 3rd location that we have been to and it was 5 stars again. Service was great and food was bomb lol. We had the supreme all you can eat and we were stuffed. Loved it and will definitely be back!
Took my parents here to have them try out japanese bbq for the first time- they loved it! I would highly reccomend coming here for the experience and you get a lot of food for what youre paying. Be aware that their locations are always packed so make a reservation in advance
Unique dinner experience! My group of two couples got pork fried dumplings, 4 “ready to eats” (garlic noodles were super good!), and then steak/pork belly/calamari to grill and share. We left full and felt like it was more economical than getting the “course” for 4.
Amazing experience! Food was amazing and service was great!
Staff are so attentive. Food is great! I would recommend this place!
Loved the food! Our server wasn't great but I don't think that is a reflection on the whole wait staff.
Everything we had was delicious. The servers were friendly and attentive.
Great restaurant. I enjoy it every time I come.
We went here for date night! If you download their app, u get points for every time you go. It’s such a fun experience, so it’s easy to go back just for the self cooking!
Awesome waiter with great energy and personality! Fast service and amazing yummy food. Love the new spacious location!
Excellent value and good food. If you enjoy cooking your own food, this is an awesome experience. Highly recommended!,
My friend and I came here Friday night and we had a great experience. This is not my first time dining here and I keep coming back for the same reasons. Great food, great service, and great prices! We started with the tuna nachos appetizer, which was amazing. We ordered different meats and their new special ( garlic beef). All the meats were very delicious and the sides (asparagus and corn) were great also. I highly recommend this place!!
Everything on the menus is loaded with MSG! Had to inquire since menu didn’t note chemicals. Very casual. Wait staff uninformed on food prep. Disappointing experience
Way organized and more attentive servers without any attitudey feel you get when you go to the GyuKaku in downtown!! Fed Better staff than the one on. 210 Ohio st. !!!
We love going to Gyu-Kaku to splurge a little. The service and food are always excellent. We always pick a set or all you can eat to keep it easy. Save room for dessert! S’mores over the grill are so fun :)
Great as always. Definitely will be back
Amazing food and atmosphere ! Everything was fresh :)
Absolutely one is the worst service of any restaurant I have ever been to. Food was nice so that was a saving grace
My family and I have been to Gyu-Kaku many times and have always been satisfied with the service. However, our last visit (Father’s Day) was not a good experience.
We ordered the meal for four and all of the meat, but one, was brought out at once. We were never told how long to cook any of it until we finally asked. But, by then there were so many meats to cook we couldn’t remember all times. In the middle of cooking our server came over and asked us to pull off all the meat from the grill so she could change it out. We asked if we could wait but she said it would just take a minute. Rude
Our garlic noodles and rice have always been served up by our server. This time they were both just dropped off and left without any comment.
Big turn off. Will look at other places to dine first before we come back
Great experience cooking your own food. We ordered 4 meats, one rice, and five vegetable sides for 4 people and we were full at the end. Would highly recommend coming here for any occasion from dates to friend groups to family. It’s a lot of fun and experiential.
This place is awesome, we expend a great time there!
Their menu didn’t match online and they didn’t honor the happy advertisements on their website or menus.
