Very good Japanese food

We have been there many times over the years. It is an upscale Japanese restaurant with a number of tempura and sushi offerings. It is modestly expensive and the food is enjoyable. The veggie tempura plate is large and the batter very good.

Celebrating a birthday with family (3 persons), we had dinner at Kobe. With dining inside as well as outside on the patio, Kobe provided a wonderful dining experience. First-time diners at Kobe, we ordered a number of food items from the small plate menu. First, 1/2 dozen oysters, mango roll sushi and coconut shrimp. Then kobe sliders, white dragon sushi... More

It's too bad they allow cell phones. It really ruined my visit when a woman gabbed on her cell phone thru most of my dinner. And as I was leaving the man next to me started to talk on his.

We always enjoy the sushi bar. Great happy hour menu and it was fun to talk to the sushi "chefs". Thanks for fresh fish and great rolls. We will be back!!

This restaurant was located underground, so I hought that was peculiar. When we walked in, the room was dark, but I thought that was cool. The servers were pretty nice. For a beverage, I chose lemonade. That was good. And my Udon Noodles were tasty and nicely prepared. This was a very good restaurant, and I would like to come... More

OK, we are a bit spoiled coming from SF, but this place, rated so highly by locals, really was very average. Appetizers were fair to terrible. One wasn't edible. The rolls were better, but weren't particularly memorable. The space is nice -- quality interior and good service.

I will never understand the negative reviews of Kobe, especially regarding the service, which after at least a dozen visits over 3 years has been nothing short of awesome. My wife and I are relocating to Portland after living in and near Ashland and we had to visit Kobe one more time before migrating north. And this latest experience was... More

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
