Kobe's has been around a very long time...I was a kid last time I was there. Thanks to a Travelzoo deal my wife and I visited the Kobe Izakaya Lounge. The restaurant is up stairs. Had reservations(a need to have, even on Wednesday) for eight o'clock. Seated right away and served immediately. The voucher lets us pick six items off the appie menu. The food that passed us looked awesome, the food we eat was exceptional. The Tuna Avocado Salsa is a must! We also had the short ribs,(tender but very sweet ) chicken karrage, ebi mayo...very good, spicy tuna roll...and it was! Finishing off with the sashimi ... Very good even though a few chewy pieces. There is a extensive wine/beer/saki list best buy a whole bottle as the 'by the glass' prices range from 7 to 12 dollars. I also had a Mai Tai (9.50$).....if you like rum you will like this. I like rum! In the lounge there are low tables for small groups....very dark setting: walls, celling, and furniture are either black or brown to go with the low lighting. The food is very good but it is very expensive. Our bill would have been 87 dollars. Our servers where polite and quick. One of the bar tenders lacked personality...it was a hard ship for her to ring our tab through. I did appreciate the clean washrooms! We will be back next week as we have one more voucher left!
