This is a "cook at the table" style steak house. I personally like hibachi food and enjoy this restaurant. I also like that if it is a special celebration you feel like you have done something special. The selection include chicken, creak, or seafood. They also have a fresh selection of veggies all grilled in front of you which is... More

My first experience with a Japanese restaurant was a magnificent one. I went to Kobe on Christmas Day. I was not disappointed. The food was fresh and delectable. It was prepared to my liking and they were very conscious of food allergies and preferences.

Ok, I know we should have left immediately when we were seated and the room where we were (bar area) smelled of something rotten. But we had an appointment in 1 hr and after a long 7 hr drive, we stayed. We ordered the filet mignon and a combo of sirloin & scallops. It included soup, salad, (rice + a... More

It's your typical Kobe Chain Steak House. The food is good and the chef's are entertaining. Sure it's pricy, you are paying to be entertained.

26 Nov 2016 was my first visit. I was very impressed with the service from the time I walked through the door until I left. I highly recommend placing a reservation request from their Web Site: This is a busy/popular restaurant and the on-line reservation system worked great for us. Food was great with generous portions. Table staff were attentive... More

If you have ever been to a Japanese Steak House where the chef cooks at the table, then you know what to expect at Kobe Japanese Steak House & Sushi Bar. The question is Kobe as good as, better than, or not as good as all the others. There is Geisha, Kanpai, Tokyo, Fjui Japanese, Yukihana, Sushi Yama, Benihana, and... More

Kobe is a "must visit" for us when we are in the Sarasota area visiting family. The food is tasty and the portions are generous. I do feel that it's not as good as it used to be but you can't beat their noodles and the famous White Sauce!

Pricy for this food. We ate at a table instead of a grill table. Food was warm. Fried Rice was terrible and the noodles were not that tasty. I would not go there again.
