I selected this for a pre birthday special. we joined a table with a very nice family. The space was jammed together. The chef and his cart kept bumping into my wife who was seated on the end. The just crammed too many tables into the area. Then the chef(?) kept dropping the egg, and generally was not entertaining. The... More

8 of us recently went to Kobe in Clearwater for Mom's 80th birthday, we made reservations for 5 p.m. we had to wait about 10 minutes for the rest of the table to arrive, just enough time to grab a drink in the bar. We were greeted immediately given menus and the party began! Everyone from the greeter, waiter and... More

A friend had mentioned that the owner of my favorite sushi place had another sushi place in Oldsmar. I did a little bit of review reading on Yelp and looked through some of the pictures. I was excited to see that the pictures of the plating, the staff, and the menu items looked familiar to me. Would the taste also... More

We were lucky and did have an engaging chef. That does make a difference. The food was good and fresh. The portions of everything except the meat and fish are quite large. The service is pretty good. The only complaint is the dining area is very warm and you smell of food when you leave. I know the grills are... More

This place was great!! In addition to really good sushi it was the first time we had ever had a female sushi chef. Susana was wonderful and a very accomplished sushi chef and we were amazed that she actually got "stuck" waiting tables or bussing or bar tending. She IS a great asset to the restaurant Our only complaint is... More

Absolutely love this place. This is the best hibachi I've ever had. The food is always good. We're never had a bad experience there. Our favorite chef is Rocky, but everyone there is good. If you sign up for their rewards, you get a free meal on your birthday. Love, love, love this place.

We were seated within a few minutes of our reservation time. We really appreciated that. It took a little while for someone to take our drink order, but that was okay. The server was pleasant when he took our food order. The chef was pleasant enough but not engaging with the diners at our table. The food was tasty. I... More

We always try the Kobe Steakhouses as you are pretty much guaranteed a good meal and entertainment. I have to say (and my husband agrees) this is the best one we have ever tried. Our chef was Panda. Not only was he was entertaining, but the flavor of the food he prepared at our table was excellent. We both had... More
