After messing up our call ahead seating, i thought for sure this was going to be one of those nights...but after being seated...the experience got much better. Drink and food orders were taken, Hibachi all around the table, and after scouting out some other chefs, i only noticed one thas was not very "engaging". Then out came ours...old as the... More

Kobe has wonderful food that is cooked at your table in front of you. The chef's are great at entertaining you while waiting and also asking your preferences. The only con is the cleaning solution or mop they use in the restaruant has a mildew type oder that is noticeable when walking in the door and you smell until your... More

We've been to hibatchi many times at other restaurants (check out Fuji Yama near Knapps Corners or Ichiban on 29th St for good food and great show) and though we would try this place after shopping at Rivertown. I've had sushi here before and it was okay, but this time we did hibachi. I had the chicken, husband has the... More

By comparison to other Japanese Steak houses, it was just OK. Same old show. Filet was a little bit on the tough side. . .Shrimp not good at all. . . all we had was lacking taste. We had a group of nine people. We were all very much of the same opinion. With other choices in Grand Rapids, this... More

I LOVED my experience at Kobe! This was my first Kobe experience, although I had been to other Hibachi dining places prior to this. The food at Kobe surpassed my 'other' experience. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the food was excellent. I will be planning a return visit for sure!

This is a great place for the young and adventurous. Knock yourself out, but I guess I am beginning to prefer less drum banging and more service.

Our innkeeper recommended Kobe Japanese Steak & Seafood. My husband and I had never done Hibachi dining, so we did not know what to expect. The restaurant was packed, but we only waited about 20 minutes for our chef to begin cooking. The food was plentiful and delicious. He had the filet, scallops and shrimp, and I had the filet...

Have been to Kobe several times and is always entertaining and the food is always very good. Cooked my steak and scallops perfectly. Everyone in our party had food prepared properly.

I use to love going to this restaurant. In fact they're scallops were my favorite. I was here a few days ago and received the worst service from a chef that I've ever received. Our chef took forever to get to our table and when he made our food more landed on the table than dinner plates. My scallops were... More

Worst service I have ever had. I was dining alone as I am in Grandville on business. I was seated and waited for over 5minutes before anyone even acknowledged that I was there. Finally after 10 minutes the waitress has the nerve to say to me that she had a large table that was her priority. She offered to take... More
