Here at the "KOBE", we carry on the ancient art of teppanyaki - hibachi style cooking, in authentic Japanese country-inn ambiance.
The word "KOBE" suggests to the gourmet the ultimate in the finest beef, raised on delicacies, and gently massaged to perfection.

Watch....as we lovingly prepare the tenderest steak, the freshest seafood, free-range chicken, and garden fresh vegatables....all before your very eyes in true Japanese style.

Food was ok, ambience was good. The only thing I don't like at these types of places is that all of your food doesn't come together, and you end up eating your meal 1 item at a time as it's being cooked. Meh!

We have been there a dozen times and usually have great service but this time was the exception. We had to ask to order drinks, had to ask 30 minutes later where our drinks were. Needless to say we only had 1 drink when we might have had a few = better tip.

Its an amazing dinner experience . Lots of fun watching chefs cook your food right in front of you with all kind of tricks. Everyone loves it adults and kids.Great food, great setting. I take family and friends every time they visit from out of town and out of country.A bit pricey but you can always find vouchers on Groupon and Social Shoppers.

Went there for a business diner.
Used to live in Japan for a while so I was expecting a similar service and quality, it was not the case.
We took the most expensive cut of meat and it looks amazing but the cook ruined it.
As we were not eating seafood but the first dish contained prawn they just skipped it and not offered any replacement so while others were eating we were just waiting, and repeatidely asked if we wanted more drinks while our glasses were still almost full.
The side dishes were poorly done at best, barely cut into the hot plate with close to no seasoning but salt and shoyu,
Overall quite disappointed by the experience.
In the plus side the cocktail were good and well prepared.

Our reservation was for Nov 2 @ 7pm.....we were seated promptly. Very nice staff...attentive & friendly.
All three of us ordered the steak & prawns........absolutely tasteless........we were pouring the mustard & ginger sauce over everything to give some flavor & also asked for soya sauce.
What was a retirement dinner for our girlfriend turned out to be a dud experience!!
Won't return & certainly won't recommend this restaurant..........

Food is always exceptional.. the chefs are entertainers. Only complaint is there needs to be better ventilation, way too smoky. The restaurant decor also needs an update.

The food was awesome. The cook was interactive and I enjoyed the setup and execution. Everyone eats at the same time, and like-foods are cooked at the same time! You can share the meals so easily as well. The meals are reasonable and you are paying for the experience and unique environment. 10/10 would recommend as well as going here for more very special occasions. The wagyu was out of this world. Worth the $225!

I found the hostess very rude no consideration for special needs of a individual.
We had this booked a week in advance, they should then mention where we will seated, third floor could not be our preference as having had two knee surgeries, we could have opt out, and what happens if the person was in a wheel chair, you have no elevator.

Gozilla! The Japanese Kobe-Wagu was terrific. This is an item that is not available in the States. My daughter and I couldn't believe how incredible it was. This is something we will both have every time we come to Vancouver. Pricey but worth it. Only down side was the upstairs was so tight when even ever some wanted to use the washroom we had to get up to let them by us.

The Teppanyaki chef was friendly and very good, we had each a filet mignon and 1/2 lobster, which were excellent and in particular the filet mignon was very tender (cooked medium) and large (I estimate 8 or 10oz), the red wine very tasty.
The seating was a bit tight, however more or less normal for teppanyaki. We were in the upper room which has large tables for more people, actually I would prefer the lower room with smaller tables.

Two Adults, one child. Seated on the corner of a table with no room to eat. Rushed to order, when the cook is done they start asking for your plates, just after you have started eating. Dining experience had the allure of a credit card being swiped through a machine.

Great food with a fun atmosphere. Probably not the best place to have dinner before heading out to the clubs/bars because you WILL smell and feel like grilled food all night.
