We are locals and eat here at least 1 x per month. Reasonable prices for excellent sushi and a variety of other delicacies on the menu. Menu not limited to sushi. My wife does not eat sushi or fish and loves the place. Love the mojitos (in season) and a decent wine selection. Last time I tried the tempura shrimp... More

It was the best sushi I've ever had. The crab rangoons were a bit different from other classic ones ( they added bacon) but I couldn't stop eating. Server was also very good.

COBO is one of my favorite places to eat in Boone. It's a little pricey, but a fun place to go with friends on a Saturday night when they have half-price sushi. They also have great mixed drinks.

The owner of this restaurant is apparently from Steamboat Springs CO and, having lived for many years in CO we felt right at home. It is decorated sort of "lodge" style with rustic furniture and stone columns, but also quite contemporary. Not your typical Japanese restaurant. Screens over the bar play footage of extreme skiing. Very good and reasonably priced... More

After trying a number of TripAdvisor-recommended restaurants in Blowing Rock and Boone, we found Cobo to be the most enjoyable in all aspects. Upon entering we were warmly greeted and invited to sit at the table of our choice. As we walked to our table the effect of the intimate lighting, beautiful bar, eclectic decor, and dramatic music captivated us.... More

Great sushi but feel like you showed get more for the money. 1 roll had 6 pieces and it was $12. Our waitress was awesome. The temperature of the restaurant is freezing cold. I'll be sure to bring a sweater next time.

I had heard great things about this restaurant but was quite disappointed. While it does have a great atmosphere, the sushi was just average and the portions were small for the price. Two of the three rolls we ordered I would consider half rolls and each of those was more than $10. I can say the service was good.

Service and food is excellent. We have been here several times and these people know how to run a restaurant from the front staff to the waiters . A perfect meal for two is edamame,tuna poke, Korean BBQ tacos, and a Rainbow roll. Just perfect. If I could give this place 10 stars I would. Good job guys we will... More
