    We celebrated a family birthday! It’s our first time at this location and we completely loved the ambiance. Our group was for 7 people and I enjoyed that we were sitting together with 2 urns. The staff was friendly and very attentive!!

    Nice and cozy place. But very quiet and a little different from the other ones around town. But definitely worth a try, specially because the area around the restaurant is cleaner than the one at Times Square.

    The waiter is attentive and friendly. Food is delicious but a little pricy as the portions were small. The two cocktails were very bad and mostly ice and sugar.

    Unacceptably bad service: waiter was indifferent and not even minimally cordial, and, despite a hefty tab, after 1.5 hours, the manager asked us, in the most brute, uncouth manner, to "empty the table". At that time, we still had drinks on the table. When we left, a couple of minutes later and without finishing our drinks, there was nobody(!?) waiting to be seated. The attitude the manager gave was completely uncalled for and totally out of line.

    The reviews on your website were so positive that we wanted to give Gyu-Kaku a try. We were also impressed that the restaurant was unable to open for perhaps a year because of the pandemic, yet finally did. But the experience of eating there was anticlimactic. The food was edible, slightly greasy (the garlic edemame), the sauces bland, the meat rather dull, closer to fast food than the kind of barbecue you can get in Little Korea. The service was okay but, inasmuch as the restaurant was not overly busy, not particularly attentive. So overall okay, but a disappointment. We're not rushing back.

    We are Gyu-Kaku reward members. We LOVE the 44th street location and every time we’ve dined there we feel that is the flagship location of this business. But the one on 620 Amsterdam is not even close to upholding those standards. We always have to wave down the waiters and they seemed annoyed to interact with consumers. They don’t add oil to the grill so the meat sticks to the grill has a burnt taste afterwards. They don’t cook the rice in the heat retaining bowls and we’ve been there several times where the grills don’t work completely. The managers at 620 Amsterdam are nice but their standards are not being upheld. We will not be returning to this location as their service was not acceptable and they even gave me a hard time to redeem my rewards. I will exclusively be dining at the 44th street Gyu-Kaku location.

    Portions were smaller than other locations. Felt ripped off as a regular at GYU. Also the marinades were dry so meat had little flavor compared to normal.
