Kobans was our place of choice for our destination wedding dinner. We had 18 family members travel four hours for our wedding. When we got to Kobans, we were treated with great respect and excellent service. My husband and I had met with the serving staff the night before and felt as if we were in good hands. When we entered the day of the wedding, our table was neatly arranged with linens and fresh bud vases. This is a small touch that is greatly appreciated. We had asked to have appetizers ready at 5:30, and sure enough out came this special delight of an antipasto salad and bread. We were not expecting that, but my taste buds were so happy. As the other appetizers were brought, I realized I should be careful not to eat too much prior to my entre'. The French Onion soup was incredible. My New York Strip steak was so thick and prepared perfectly. I served for five years in a five star restaurant that charged $40 dollars for the steak alone that didn't compare to Kobans. At Koban's we received the 14 oz. New York Strip, a salad, and a side all for $17.25. Seriously, we have eaten at Ruth Chris Steak house, and Koban's steak was better. As for the other family members, we had them order off of the menu in advance. If you are a pasta lover, their lasagna was huge and delicious. My father state the grilled barbeque chicken breast was the best chicken he has ever eaten (Sorry Mom). Oh, and my desert was the Peanut Butter Fudge Ice Cream Pie. Melts in your mouth for a delight that is cool, and delicious on a warm summer day. I have a feeling that even in the winter the desert is a warm a cozy comfort food because of the hot fudge. My husband an I are agree that Kobans is a restaurant we will crave for back in southwest Pennsylvania. I hope to go back every year for our anniversary.
By the way, we found Kobans via trip advisor. Their rating for the French onion soup and New York strip drove us to viewing their website. The website has everything you need to make your mouth water. This restaurant was picked for our wedding by the internet. How fortunate we were for the four people who reviewed Kobans. Thank you! Our day was made incredible by this exceptional dining experience.
Kobans - THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! May all of those visiting and living in Niagara Falls, NY visit your restaurant and have the same taste and service experience!
With highest regards to Kobans,
