Tonight a birthday dinner at Kobe’s Brandon location ended up being the worst and embarrassing meal we have even had. We are frequent customers and love Kobe’s until tonight. We arrived at 545pm and was seated promptly with four in our family and a family of five across the other side. Our order was Filet dinner, Teriyaki chicken dinner, kids... More

While travelling, we picked up to-go because we were craving sushi. I paid, tipped the bartender, and grabbed the bag and headed out. When we got back to the hotel, we had a semi-correct order. But, we were missing part of it and didn't have the sauces we asked for, nor did we have the right mix of noodles/rice, etc...... More

Four of us went and had a great dinner at this Kobe location. The chef did a great job in preparing our food and entertaining us, as is usually the case at Kobe restaurants. The food was very well prepared and tasted great. Love Kobe Restaurants!

This was our first time here. We do have a favorite hibachi grill that we normally dine that a friend recommended to us but we thought we would give Kobe a try because it is 20 minutes closer to our home. Kobe serves the same amount of food as Tokyo Japanese (our favorite) but the taste and quality of food... More

We went to Kobe thinking we would have a similar experience to our favorite Japanese steak house in Orlando, Benihana. OMG...nothing at all like it in terms of food quality! I would say this is average at best. The salad only had lettuce in it...no tomato's or other veggies, and the soup was bland. I was very disappointed and would... More

I have been to numerous Japanese steakhouses and while staying with friends in Suncity FL I wanted to take them out for a nice dinner as part of my thank you. Based on reviews we chose Kobe. Well it is now my favorite, the whole experience was nothing but the best, our three meals were delicious and the vegetables were... More

This restaurant is absolutely amazing. The food is excellent, the servers are nice and friendly, and the atmosphere is great. All the food is prepared right in front of you on a hot grill by an experienced chef. The food is excellent for the price and you leave full and satisfied. I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a... More
