Kobe's was a great night out! Teppanyaki is always an entertaining meal, and Kobe's didn't disappoint. The food was good, and the chef entertaining. We shared the Kobe Emperor a steak, and it was plenty!

Don't expect anything special here, but it was a decent place for teppanyaki. The chef was talented. In my opinion, the food was under-spiced. Beware that the Kobe steak is the restaurant's name and not Kobe beef.

Despite a reservation, we waited 30 minutes. After we were seated, there was a very long wait until we saw our server. She was very sweet but overworked and could not attend to all of her tables. She forgot my beer but I found it easiest to get it myself from the antiquated bar downstairs. The food was somewhat bland... More

Food was okay, mixed drinks were lousy and the service was so-so. Overall - very disappointing for the price.

we had a reservation and after the guy at the front said we'd be seated within 10 minutes, we had waited an extra 45. the service was absolutely TERRIBLE and the food was just alright but the chef was great and personable. It was an extremely bad experience and the company we had was even worse.

Ok, my daughter loves this type of food. So, we went. When we walked in we were asked to sit at the bar area. With 20 other people waiting for a table in an empty restaurant. Weird. No one cared or so it seemed. The hostess could have cared less if we were uncomfortable. Dinner was better and Eddie was... More

We were seated upstairs which was fine, although the layout of the table was awkward in that people seated at the end felt they at another table, with strangers. The waiter had total attitude which lasted the entire meal. The fan was not working well and we were smoked out of our seats. No one seemed to care, certainly not... More

Over an hour sitting at the cooking table before we got any food. And we had reservations. Nothing like wasting hours on a special trip to maui waiting for food. We had rice given to us about half hour before our hot cooked food. Terrible.

Perhaps we are biased since we have an excellent teppan place at home, but Kobe seemed to be only OK. The starters were soup, but no salad. The pre-meal shrimp portions seemed to be very small, only three small pieces. The main courses came to the table pre-cut so that part of the show was eliminated. The steak on the... More

My wide and I came here for dinner and had a great time. We got sat with some very kind locals and really enjoyed ourselves. The server was nice and was into putting on the show. The food was very good. I had the filet and really liked it - so much so that I was stuffed but wanted to... More
