We don't go out very often, just a couple places downtown now and then, but when I have out of town guests visiting, I love to bring them to Kobe. The food is delicious, the chefs are always entertaining, sake is hot and the staff is very friendly. We came on New Year's Eve and also had a great time.... More

This place was good - it has your standard hibachi experience, Japanese style cooking with entertainment, at a hibachi price. It doesn't differentiate from other hibachi, but it's still a good experience none-the-less.

Thought this was a regular Steak house serving Kobe beef - I couldn't have been more surprised. You are sat In a U shape round the hot plate where the chef prepares whatever you order. Everyone receives some Miso soup followed by a prawn, some Mushroom And onion as their starter. He then makes the fried rice to order- Spicy/garlic... More

I went to celebrate my birthday, was my first time and I had an awesome time. You will have the food cooked in front of you. They serve high quality and the chef makes a little show while cooking. He will keep you well entertained. The drinks are really good, nice decoration and environment. The service is excellent! If it's... More

We had a short wait in the bar before our group of 10 got seated in the dining room. The service was a little slow but after our orders were placed, food was prepared and served quickly. The chef was very entertaining and we enjoy his expertise behind the grill. Food was tasty, portions generous and leftovers were enjoyed the... More

This place is terrible. We had a reservation but still waited nearly an hour to sit down. This place is set up for one thing only and that is mass producing marginal food as quickly as possible and charging as much as possible to make as much money as possible. The environment was smoky and dingy, none of the money... More

We went to Kobe on a whim, expecting it to be a knock off of Benihana. It was better than we could've hoped. We had great showmanship from our cook, attentive wait staff, and great food. They do offer a birthday song and dessert for anyone celebrating a birthday. We went early and were able to get the early bird... More

Kobe's is always delicious. It's a lot of fun to sit at teppanyaki style cooking. This location has beautiful Japanese decor at entry. The one major downfall to me is they squish you around a table, which is very uncomfortable. There is no reason unless you're in a large group together to place so many at a Grill. They put... More
