I'm from a big city where there are lots of choices for sushi -- not as many choices in Ashland, but if you love sushi you'll choose one of them. Kobe has the nicest atmosphere and they have nice small plates menu, but you never get the 'sushi bar' feeling here. The bar itself is very small, maybe enough for... More

I see someone complained about paying more at a table for the bar menu. I was there last night and it is clearly written on the bar menu (almost impossible to miss) that it applies only to those sitting in the bar or kitchen. The service was excellent. We had miso soup, two types of sushi and the Kobe sliders.... More

I brought friends to Kobe, from out of town, we were given the bar menu upon request, yet were not told we were to pay the higher pricing from original menu. The food was excellent, but the manager was very rude, and accusing of us that we were dishonest somehow about the bar menu pricing. I have eaten there before,... More

Fresh sashimi and creative rolls! We felt lucky to find this gem still open for lunch at 2 pm. Nice soup and salad as well.

...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!

Long story short you need really good fish to make really good sushi. Me thinks their suppliers are too far from the source. Sushi was so, so. 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
