Not a tourist place!

Good service from knowledgeable staff. Extensive and interesting menu. It's a bit hard to find, downstairs and down a hallway. It may have been marked but I didn't notice. Fair price for menu items. I wish it was open for lunch. It was cold near the window. It made the evening a little less... read more

Was looking for a Japanese restaurant and decided to try Kobe. The ambiance was inviting. Started out with some Sake and California Rolls. The Sushi menu did not have my favorite and very popular Ebi (shrimp) sushi...a disappointment. The California Roll order was full, and more then enough.

Atmosphere was nice, and service was great. But the food was way overpriced. Food wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. For the quality we got, I would have expected to pay about half of what we did. The sushi was better than average, but we have little kids that don't eat sushi, so we also got some other items...

What a wonderful little place- we went on a Thursday night at 6:30pm and it was packed. We were seated in 10 minutes...wonderful menu- nigiri, sashimi, rolls, salads. We had a seaweed salad- simple, fresh, perfect . Next was hamachi which wa so mild and beautiful. Had a beef dish, do not remember the name but it was excellent...and I... More

Not sure why Kobe isn't in the top 10 or 20 in Ashland. Consistently fresh fish, good selection. Bar menu is cheap with good options. My wife and I have been going here once every week or two for years and it rarely disappoints.

Not only is this by far the best sushi in town, it might be the best dining experience in Ashland. My wife and I frequent Kobe at least twice a month. The staff is amazing, the sushi is always fresh and delicious and they have a great wine, beer and cocktail list as well.

Nice interior, sometimes very crowded, and wonderful patio. Great food. Decent service. Sushi in Ashland does not compare with LA or NY sushi so if you're looking for top rate experience you may be disappointed, but here in Ashland I'd say this is the best you'll get and it's pretty darn good.

Our host in Ashland said of Kobe that it is "the place" in Ashland for sushi. Located downstairs, creekside on North Main, Kobe is easy to miss, but well worth a visit if you're in the mood for good sushi in a peaceful atmosphere. Kobe offers both inside seating and outside seating on a patio overlooking tree and shrub-shaded Lithia... More

Really enjoy this restaurant, it's a must visit every time we go to Ashland. Delicious sushi, great wine list, great dessert. Really enjoy the creme brulee trio. The service is great also. Nice to sit outside and listen to the creek running close by.

I have been to this small sushi restaurant every year for the last few years while in Ashland to see theatre. Very impressed with the quality and creativity of the preparations here. This year we did encounter a very long wait which can be a real problem when you have a play to attend. The restaurant was more crowded than... More
