This has been a favorite of mine for years. However, on my previous visits I have noticed a declining quality of food and service. Today was the final straw. Upon arrival we were seated and our waitress came with soups and salads for the rest of the table. The waitress took our drink order. When she came back she slammed... More

We had a great evening with our three young children (age 8, 6, 4). Food was reasonably prices for this kind of restaurant. My one complaint is that our server recognized a friend at our table and spent too much time chit chatting with them instead of all of us. Food was fantastic; cooking "show" was a hit with our...

We stayed in West Virginia and decided to check out Kobe Japanese Steak House. When we walked in the door, it was extremely hot. I wasn't sure I wanted to stay, but my family did. Apparently according to our chef, the air conditioner had been broken for 2 weeks! While we were there the waitress told us that it had... More

Thought typical Hibachi style show and fare, this Kobe had different, special touches not usually found, The starter soup was less salty and more flavorful, the house sesame dressing was excellent, dinner came with egg noodles on the grill. The fried rice was an additional charge, but was again only lightly salted/seasoned. THe shrimp and scallops were large sized, well... More

We had a reservation for 7pm and showed up exactly on time. Our friends were running a few minutes late. The hostess said she would not seat us and we would have to wait at the unattended bar until our friends arrived, and if they did not arrive within 15 mins we would all lose our table - even though...

Food there was good, but it's not for the light in the wallet. That's why I've been well over a year in going. For me, it must be a special occassion to go there. And that's only been once.

This place was fine when Japanese Steak Houses first hit the scene...they are surpassed by so many other "better" options available. It's too trendy and the food has not kept up with the more discerning tastes of todays diners.
