The restaurant was not inviting from the outside or the bar area. It was stifling hot in the waiting lounge. The drinks were average; fruity drink with very little alcohol. The food was good and the chef cooking it for us was pretty entertaining. I have been to other Kobe restaurants that were much better.

The wife and I walked over to Kobe after a long day of flying. We were exhausted and starving. The dining area was very dark and it seemed like there was no air circulating throughout the building because it was extremely hot. The food was alright and our cook was nice. Nothing to brag about. If you are staying at... More

Took family here visiting from Australia. Really came here since it's close to the hotel. And we went out for the conversation not much for the food. Food was average (Used tons of butter). Service was bad (served us food 45 minutes after we sat down). Location is average. Parking is terrible. Place is bad. Too hot, A/C was dirty,... More

Went there over the July 4th 2014 holiday. It was terrible. A gang of employees jumped us at the door and told us to wait...ok. The waiting room was hot but after a short time we were at our "table". The room was dark and very, very smoky and DIRTY everywhere. Our cook undercooked everything as fast as he could... More

It is a lot more run down than the last time we were here. We like it a lot last time and like the food better than Benihana. The meat and seafood did not taste very fresh this time. The shrimp and chicken and veg were good. But I do not think we will be going back

Went to Kobe after purchasing a Groupon. We have been to several different Kobe Steakhouses in Florida and have always enjoyed the experience. If this would have been our first time to a teppanaki style restaurant, I would never go back. The exterior of the restaurant is sketchy, but we overlooked it, still thinking that our dining experience would make... More

Our cook was fun, he made our dinner one to remember. My sons enjoyed dinner but most of all ate their vegetables.

We visited this restaurant in 1984 on our honeymoon and it was our first teppanyaki experience. We emailed and booked a Sunday night for my 57th birthday. We couldn't have enjoyed the night any better. Great fun and food. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. By the number of people dining it shows that the owners have the right... More

This place was fun, It had great food. Best if you have a big group. They all do the same flaming onion volcano thing. The food is great. I enjoyed the fried rice since they make right infront of you. The location is sometimes hard to find if your not familure and really hard to park. Best if you just... More
