great place for high quality meat!! a bit expensive but you can get a decent price by being smart and avoiding grilled vegetables and appetizers which are not that special. their menus are great options. grilled meat is very very good, high quality and good variety. service is quick and staff is kind. to go back next time in ny!

It's our son's favorite place, so while visiting this week, it was first place we went to for dinner, early enough to get a table, before the reservations filled up. First time grilling at table. We ordered the Special for Two ($70) and a pitcher of Sapporo. My spouse had fried shrimp dumplings, Garlic Noodles and green tea ice cream.... More

GyuKaku is pretty consistent with their food. Always a fun experience and enjoyable meal. Doesn't break the bank. Only dock the 1 point because the service could be a little better. Our server spoke very soft, it's very hard to understand and he barely came by our table even though the restaurant wasn't busy during the time we went. Would... More

We stopped in on our way to dinner for some drinks. We sat at the bar and had a few beers and sake by the glass. No an expansive menu but just about right. Happy Hour prices were superb - 50% off. We'd go back again and try the food.

We were seated right at our reservation time, service was great, food was brought to the table for us to cook, easy instructions were given by the server. Food was GREAT and the sauces for each meat were amazing. Waitress was very informative and happy to answer all of our questions. We have never experienced anything like this and is... More
