Best sushi we have had in a while!

Typical assortment of sushi related dishes but very good quality and imaginative combinations. One item that would be widely accepted as a menu addition is a combination fried rice entrée. I had it once "off the menu" and it was exceptional. Regardless, Cobo is a fun place to enjoy very good sushi related dishes in an upscale decor at very... More

Really superb sushi and sashimi, top quality fish. It's crazy to imagine but they have the best fish in the mountains of NC. No reservations, it's a quaint visually refreshing venue. Many fantastic local craftsmen and women have decor displayed here. Met a fella named Thomas that had cut the 1500 lb wooden table that adorns the hostess area. One... More

The chefs are amazing at cobo!! Half price nights let you try almost everything! Don't order the same thing every time try as many new things as you can! Step outside your box and trust the chefs to change your outlook on what sushi is supposed to be!

We have always had sushi at a local well-known restaurant - but wanted to try Cobo since we had heard so many great things about it. The place was very busy - and after eating there, I can understand why. Atmosphere is low-key, but beautiful. We ate at the bar since seating was full (found out that you can call... More

Creative and reasonably priced sushi served along with drinks that are reminisient of the 1950s. The wait staff is outstanding with big personalities lots of heart and plenty of opinions to offer.

I ate at Cobo each of the last two nights. On Monday night, Brianna waited on us and brightened our table with her upbeat personality and stories about college. After encouraging us to have soy beans dusted in salt (yum) we moved on to a Kali Roll and a Tempura Shrimp Roll. Both were great but Brianna wouldn't let us... More

Arrived at 6pm on Friday night. Upbeat, lively, but not too loud. Sat at the bar because the tables were all full. Staff was friendly and competent. Came for the sushi. Enjoyed a red dragon roll, lobster roll, edamame, calamari and a few house rolls. Siracha and jalapeño were great additions to the red dragon. Aioli sauce for the calamari... More
