The restaurant is a little difficult to locate, but plenty of free parking. The food is always great and entertaining to watch the skilled preparation. The chef kept you entertained by involving the customers. The drink server was a bit lax in keeping the drinks filled.

First, they blew the reservation. We originally asked for 10, then called back in the afternoon to say it was 15. They didn't write it down, and when we arrived, there was no place for the group. We eventually had to just split up into two groups that sat out of sight from each other. When I ordered my meal,... More

We always enjoy our meals and outings at the Kobe Japanese Steak and Seafood House. Good food while you are entertained as they cook your meal to your liking right in front of you. Always have a good time with the family and nice people/owners.

We eat at Kobe about once or twice a year. It's very enjoyable - and the cooks always do an outstanding job of putting on a show while they cook the food in front of you. Even though we've seen it many times, it's still a lot of fun. The fried rice, chicken, and steak are all excellent. I guess... More

Our server was wonderful & so was our food,but I couldn't help but over hear things. A few of the servers were behind the sushi bar and I overheard them discussing how they will never drink the meso soup anymore because they witnessed the sushi chef drink straight out of the ladle and then place the ladle back into the...

We went in on Sunday for a late lunch. The food was pretty good (except the rice was a little crunchy and the shrimp was cooked until it was hard). There were 5 of us, it is a little pricey, but worth it. Our waitress Ash did pretty good, our chef Louis did a great job

The food here is amazing, especially the sushi. Their yum yum (white) sauce is to die for. Definitely a go to for a good meal. You'll never leave hungry.

Have been here with friends a number of times. Service and food have always been good and the Kobe cooks always put on quite a show. This place is not cheap, but if you want a relaxing fun night out, this is where my friends and I go.

Service, chef and food... all very (low) average. Kobe (anywhere) is usually good but this one, not so much. Small portions, poorly seasoned hibachi food, tiny salads and soup was too salty to eat. I rated average only because I didn't get stuck with any utensils or sick later. Seriously, go somewhere else for dinner.

Tried it out for first time. Waitress was attentive (our glasses were never empty). Had the salmon it was very good. Food was fresh, well seasoned and an overall good experience.
