Recent visit to Kobe's Japanese Steakhouse, Clearwater FL

We visited Kobe's Japanese Steakhouse in Clearwater Fl for my mother-in-laws birthday. Pedro was the grillman, I had the Sirloin Steak, it was cooked to order and very good. There was 9 people at our table. The attendants kept our glasses filled with water, tea and soft drinks. It was a very good... read more

This place is so busy but it worth the wait. Great atmosphere, food and service. They grill several items in front of you like rice, veggie, noodles, meat of your choice...and do volcano with fire. You also get small soup and salad with ginger dresing. We had so much fun. Don't forget to get plenty of yum yum sauce! See... More

We went for my birthday, but we have been here several times. The place is large and can seat large groups; 12 per table. There are several menu choices from steak to seafood. The person cooks your food right at your table. And it is very yummy. I can never eat it all. The service is good since you have... More

We held our son's birthday party here last month. All the kids really enjoyed their meals and so did we. The kids always get a kick out of watching the chef cook at our table, especially when they light the onion volcano!

We have dined at this Kobe numerous times and have always enjoyed our dinner and usually the service. In fact, we were here with my in - laws just after Thanksgiving and everything was fine. However, a week and a half later on a family visit it was quite different. The problem started with late seating for our reservation and... More

We had such a wonderful time at dinner! I wish we could remember the chef's name! He was the best ever. Food was perfect and service was up to par! We absolutely love coming here!

To start, I tried to order shrimp and the server told me that there was a person at the table with a seafood allergy in the party of 7 at my table, so my food might have to be cooked in the back. Once everyone ordered 7 of the 10 people has some sort of seafood, so I asked if... More

Everything was very good except when it came time to pay the bill. My daughter-in-law called and made a reservation. When doing so they said she would get a discount (granddaughter's 10th B'Day would eat free). When the bill came there was no discount. She asked about it to the waiter and he referred her to the manager. The manage... More

This restaurant serves good food and having the chef at the table made it entertaining Service was good. My only complaint is that it is not very customer friendly for guests waiting to be seated. Our party had several seniors who need seating and there is very little available. When we asked if we could be seated while waiting for... More
