...service was very good with the waitress being very enthusiastic about the deserts. No children around which provided a positive atmosphere amid the greenery and water sounds. Not the absolutely best Japanese food I've ever had but very, very good.

So far, in well over a dozen visits spanning 3 years, Kobe never disappoints. True, other reviewers are correct to point out the combo rolls are Americanized; I too have no use for cream cheese in my sushi. But there are other combo options (plus the rolls do change now and then), and unlike combo rolls at the other Ashland... More

We love Kobe!! It is great to sit in the bar, or at the sushi bar, and enjoy fine cocktails and great sushi. Or, for a nice date we eat in the restaurant where the atmosphere and food is delicious. The servers are all super friendly. We love the unpretentiousness of this place! Always a favorite!

Way too much salmon (not line caught) for our tastes and way too much Americanized sushi rolls with things like cream cheese - or even cheese cheese - in them. Portions and presentation... More

We enjoyed a quiet stream side meal of sushi and tempura vegetables with excellent service. The location was convenient and the small plates were delicious. We would happily return here for another memorable meal.

Kobe is one of my favorite restaurants in Ashland for excellent sushi, cocktails and small plates. The atmosphere is more adult oriented which I appreciate when I am wanting a quiet evening out with friends or my husband for a special occasion. Excellent service and food.

I have watched this restaurant go downhill over the past 2 yrs. It used to be my favorite. I won't be going back after my last meal there.

We found this Japanese restaurant on a very hot day. It was very pleasant and the food was great. We were thrilled to have a light dinner before the play.
