Fun

Good food and great entertainment. Can get expensive, but doesn't have to. You can share any meal for $12.95. Both people get their own rice, soup, & dessert with plenty of veggies & entrée.

Seen one Teppanyaki dining experience.... you've literally seen them all. There were eight of us seat around the grill and yet, the chef brought out enough food for about three adults, prior to his "show." What he did with his knives was nothing short of amazing, I will admit - but the quality and especially quantity is sample-sized, at best.... More

Last night we again visited Kobe Japanese Steak House. We hadn't been there in several years and had forgotten what a great dining experience it is! A real Date and although we weren't celebrating anything other than enjoying life together. Although we did notice that many people in the dining room seemed to be celebrating birthdays. From the time we... More

The food is OK, but I would only go every two or three years. It is very noisy for one thing. Lots of children in attendance

Kobe is a bit dated. Needs a bit of refresh in the decor. Wait staff a bit confused and needs a bit more training and refinement. The food was fine and not too over priced for the location.

This was a favorite of the two small children we were dining with, but after that meal, the adults all decided it was off the table from that point on. I'm not sure why the Japanese grill/table concept hasn't died yet, but someone should put it out of its misery. The chefs don't seem to care, the food they produce... More

Been to a few Kobe Teppan steak houses... always pretty good. Food was great, surprised salad did not come with dinner. Sushi was good. Company at the Teppan table always makes the evening pleasant. Nice family from Vancoover BC complimented our Southern California group. Good dinner.

We visit this Japanese restaurant at least a couple of times a year. The chefs cook at grill right in front of you and each has a variation of a little entertainment routine they do. They have recently done some renovations and consequently we have noticed quite a price increase. You do get a decent amount of food though, but... More

Fortunately we had read the review reports in advance. Still Kobe creates perhaps expectations which do not necessarily correspond to what you will find. A beautiful building, kois in the pond, valet parking, all very romantic. Warm welcome. You can wait at the bar until they call you. We had asked for the teppanyaki table, and that was were they...

Our disappointment started even before we arrived. I telephoned Kobe Japanese steakhouse to inquire what the fish special was that day and was informed they had crusted Salmon which is one of my wife's favorites so I requested a reservation for 1000 pm. We arrived at 945 and were advised that they were running late. We were finally seated at... More
