Kobe's is known by locals and visitors alike as the hip place to dine in, not only because of the food, but also because of the comfortable atmosphere and personable staff.

Whether you're joining us for lunch with co-workers, dinner with the family or a special bachelorette party, there's something here for everyone to enjoy.

“Good Considering it's North Dakota”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Well the sushi is decent. I've had better but I've also had much worse. I understand I no longer live near the ocean and Kobe's is just good enough to keep the sushi cravings at bay. Prices are unbelievably high for what you get quality and quantity wise but the service was fantastic and the miso soup and gyoza were tasty.

“Something for Everyone - Two distinct sides of the restaurant”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

There is the entertainment for a group around the cooking table, fun and great food cooked in front of you with an entertaining cook. Or for a romantic time try the sushi restaurant side for a quiet ambiance and great food selections. We have tried both sides and it is always a treat for us. My new favorite is the Tenderloin and Scallops, but it is all good.

This is a fun restaurant to visit even with kids. They cook at your table and get the whole party involved. Food was outstanding, we would go again.
