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

We had a party of 7 for a 10-year child's birthday. While we had 6:30 reservations and were there on time, it took about 15 to be seated on this busy Friday night. Not a lot of the expected theatrics from this chef, just the onion tower on fire and cracking eggs on the side of the spatula. We had... More

I visited the Clearwater Kobe and was pleasantly surprised! We had called in to make reservations for the same evening at 4:30 and we got reservations for 6:30...once arrived we were quickly seated by the hostess. We were seated around a table along with another family who was also from Toronto! What luck! We ordered the filet mignon for all... More

I have had the pleasure to eat at Kobe many times and have always been happy with the entire experience. Last night we brought family from out of town and our service was provided by Tiffany and Pedro. These two are shining stars and made our dining experience feel like we were on a 5 star restaurant. Thank you Kobe... More

We all have 'been there and done that' with the hibachi style dinners, but this one was different. Chef Bao was new, I found out, but he prepared the food perfectly. He made the filet mignon stand up and walk right into my mouth! It was the most juicy, delicious, perfectly cooked steak I've had in ten years! This place... More

The restaurant has very strict policies about reservations (won't seat you until your whole party arrives, and won't guarantee the reservation if you're not all there within 15 mins of your reservation time), but if you're willing to play along, it's well worth it. Our party of 11 was timely, and got the chef we requested (Rocky), who put on... More

Ambiance simple, food is average and priced a bit high. On the positive - staff friendly and attentive.

I ordered take out from here maybe that's the problem. It was really just average. I'm vet familiar with hibachi or as they called it teppanyaki. I've also lpbeen to japan and know teppanyaki. This was just Americanized average hibachi. I'm glad I only paid $14.

It is a nice place to have dinner on special ocasions like Birthdays, anniversaries or St Valentine's day because a personal chef prepares the Hibachi style food in front of you with sense of humor and show movements. We have been coming for years to celebrate birthdays with our family and we loved it when they used to give us... More
