We went here for our Granddaughter's birthday dinner, there were 14 of us, and we had a great time. Our Japanese Chef was very funny and connected well with people. The food was very good. We went during the week and ordered one of the daily specials. Our youngest grandchildren love the goldfish at the front of the restaurant.

Saturday I brought my wife in for our 24th anniversary. I can say that you can never go wrong here. Thank you for being amazing. Great food and fun to watch the food get cooked.

Disappointed. Food used to be good. Sushi was not, nothing seemed fresh. My wife ordered Shrimp Tempura, they brought something else to the table, we said that's not what we ordered, and the waitress said: "well, do you want it?" A bit taken aback, we said that it wasn't what we ordered. She then said, "well, it's going to be... More

My wife and I enjoy this restaurant and have been here many times to eat at the teppan tables but we also enjoy visiting their sushi section. The menus in both areas offer a wide variety of dishes and we have never been disappointed. It is also a great place to visit with friends. The chefs are very entertaining.

Went with a group and we sat at the seats where the Japanese men cooked in front of us. It was interesting watching how the food was prepared.

As a kid from the region this is where we always went for a nice dinner, birthdays, and certainly special occasions. "Uncle Sam" was always smiling when he greeted us and forty years later it was under different management but same great service. I love that the egg yolk shrimp appetizer has been added. We had a table of 15... More

A great place for lunch. The chefs are always entertaining and the atmosphere is wonderful. If you have never been to a Japanese hibachi, it is definitely worth checking out. And if you have, this is one of the better ones. Just FYI, lunch is about half price of dinner.

If you've never tried the Teppanyaki experience, combining great grilled treats with the entertainment of flying utensils and shooting flames, you might want to consider a weekday lunch at House of Kobe. During the lunchtime hours several menu items are available from $11 - $14, and unless you have a really huge appetite you will find that you take home... More

Food was great but 2 people in our party ordered sushi and didn't get their food until well after the rest of us were done. 2 others had to wait for water! That was all they ordered to drink. They made excuses. No discount. Thank goodness we came early! For our birthday and anniversary we got a cherry on a... More
