The food is always good, and we enjoy going here, but the cook can make or break the experience. If you get a good fun one the experience is awesome. If you get one that is simply "going through the motions" it's not near as fun. The save either way is that the food makes up for it. The Madam... More

This visit was not going well from the start. We arrived 15 min early for an 8:30 reservation.... We were seated at 9:15. After waiting the first 30 minutes one of the hostesses came by and asked if our party was all there. We had a reservation for 6 and 6 of us were sitting together waiting, 4 of the... More

Great show and great food. I will be a visitor here every time I visit Omaha. Try the filet...it really will melt in your month like butter. Good prices for this style of restaurant, with this top quality food.

First visit to this Benihana-like restaurant in Omaha. One of grandchildren was adamant to go there. Very enjoyable! Food was good and plentiful, reasonably priced, and the "theater" was appreciated by all. Very capable and engaging "chef" who played up to the kids. They ate it up (pun intended). Will be back.

This was our second visit. The first was with 3 kids and grandparents about 6 months earlier. Both times service was great, and the food top-notch for being as far from a coast, and Japan, as you can get in the USA. My wife and I lived in Osaka, Japan, and regularly frequent teppan grills near our homes in San... More

I have been a frequent of Kobe for several years and each year the service loses its appeal. Gone are the days you would request your favorite chef and enjoy your dinner (instead of being rushed through). We were sat 40 minutes after our reservation and when we sat down the chef came out quickly. He rushed through the "show"... More

The chefs are very entertaining and the food is excellent. The steak could be better quality, but still tasty. I have been here three times, once as a couple, this was the first and actually the food was best on that trip. Had the same chef the second two times with family celebrations and he was entertaining, but pretty much... More
