Amazing Sushi

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... read 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

This is what my friend said before we entered the restaurant and she was right! We were taking her out for her birthday and this was definitely the best spot to celebrate. Back in the old days, we had to go to Banner Elk for sushi and it was only available on the weekends at 1 specific place. Boone's come... More

As surprising as it may seem to some, this is some of the best sushi you will find anywhere -- not just in Boone, but anywhere! Also great atmosphere, lively environment, good drinks, great service. Not really like anything else in Boone or Blowing Rock. Great place.

We've been to Boone many times and eaten at good restaurants but the atmosphere at Cobo was very different from the first step in the door - outstanding - upscale but inviting. The food selection was great - sushi, entrees, starters. I usually get a martini when eating out but this time I tried the Russian Tea. It was really... More

You would not think that great sushi would exist in the mountains of North Carolina, but it does. I am just sorry it took me so long to visit this gem. They also have great food for anyone who does like Sushi. In fact, the first time I went, I did not order Sushi as my entree, I just sampled... More
