We have been to many Kobe steakhouses but this is the worst by far. When you ask for your steak to be cooked rare and you receive it well done is not alright in my book. My husband was sick within a half hour. Sushi was warm and did not taste fresh...did not finish. I would not recommend the one... More

I had never been to a restaurant where they cooked your meal right in front of you, it was a lot of fun! I did mention to them ahead of time that I was allergic to shellfish so they cooked the steak and chicken portions first followed by the shrimp and scallops other people around us had ordered. Our Chef,... More

I came to Kobe with 4 other couples on a Saturday night. I have widespread cancer and had just had chemo the night before. I knew I wouldn't be able to eat much. I don't care for Japanese food — not rice, not steak, not the veggies, not anything. I was prepared to watch my friends eat and just enjoy... More

Love the table side cooking. Food was good. If you act interested you will get a better show. C'mon Peoria, you can be entertained.

We go to Kobe Steakhouse to celebrate special events, like birthdays. They give the birthday person a Japanese kerchief to wrap around their head while they sing Happy Birthday with a drum and a complimentary dessert. The food is delicious and portions are generous. The price is comparable to other Japanese grill restaurants. The sushi is delicious and we usually... More

Went here to eat with friends. It had nice choices for food combinations. I had the filet steak. Was very good cooked to perfection. With it came appetizer of jumbo shrimp, fried rice, veggies, soup and salad. Everything was very tasty. It was a lot of fun to sit and watch the show and interact with the chef. He did... More

This place was terrible! My family of 4 decided we wanted to try some Japanese food on a Sunday evening! My husband had tried Osaka & he did not like it, so we came here hoping it was better. When we walked in, it was very quiet & not a lot of people were there. Thought that was strange! Looked... More

Our family has been here a dozen times. We have sat at the hibachi tables both for dinner and lunch and have also been to their lunch buffet. All of their food is delicious and the hibachi experience is wonderful. They really put on a show. The lunch buffet is a steal for the price and the selection. We go... More

Well at first, my girlfriend and I did not want to go because aesthetically it does not look appealing on the outside! Looks like a random dates Chinese establishment that does not attract the "new customer" or the "on the fence" person, especially because it sits in an older shopping mall! The hibachi tables do not offer a lot of... More
