Japanese
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.

Great place for a date, or even for the whole family!
Could be considered pricey, but you definitely pay for what you get! The food is 10/10!

Fantastic, this has got to be one of my favourite restaurants.

The food is so good and the chiefs are always full of energy and so much fun.

Great experience and dinner out - staff were great - food is delicious... Only negative is that they changed the recipe on the ginger dipping sauce to something that is not very good at all. Other than that - it’s a great dining option

Amazing dinner, great service! Our serve ensured we had everything we needed from drinks to rice. Food was cooked to perfection. Scallops to die for! We have been several times, but this time was the best.

The food was excellent and the service was prompt but we were disappointed with the energy of the cook as we had heard it was quite a fun experience with tricks etc that was a big reason we chose to go! We were sat with an energetic group and we had a great time but the Kobe EXPERIENCE was not what we had been told about!

Dinner and Service was great! The only thing I graded low was they squished you in like sardines on the top floor. My bf and the guy beside him both sat at the corner and had to share one spot. Also there was no room to get out to walk behind the row of people at your table (everyone would have had to get up to allow you to get out).

Came for my boyfriends birthday and the chef as well as other waiting staff were very accommodating to my dairy allergy!

Staff were super friendly and we had a great time :)

When I pay my bills I recognize that we ordered sparkling water but didn’t get it. Well The bill also doesn’t include that. It’s not a big deal but I still hope this can be improved. The wagyu steak is delicious and cocktails are good. Highly recommended for people who love steaks!

Awesome experience, second time there in a very long time!

Got there 1 hour before our reservation ( due to unforeseen reasons) and they greeted us extremely well plus sat us right away.

Lot of birthdays at this location, so the ambiance matches that. Chefs are fantastic and fun.

Overall great 2nd experience!

I was so happy with my meal Hibachi steak ...but unfortunately the other two diners had a bit of a wait in between the time of their steak being served and chicken.
Chicken came home with us.
All in all very good.

Came out here for dine out Vancouver 2020 and got Hibachi steak. Meat was nice but maybe too much seasoning. Would have been better if they seasoned a little more lightly and provide salt and pepper separately to the guests so the guests can control the amount of seasoning themselves. Eight people at a table are served by one chef. The chef performs tricks while cooking. So, there is definitely an experience component to dining at Kobe. It's not just about the food. This could be fun for a company dinner or friends' gathering if you have 8 people or 16 people. At their regular price, I would say it is a little overpriced for what you get in terms of food. The experience might provide value the first time, but not really the second or the third time, and so on. So, definitely more suitable for event dining than regular dining.

Took my daughters for their 13th birthday. It happened to fall during Dine Out Vancouver. Food was fantastic and portions were huge. Chef was personable. Kobe is more expensive than our usual meals out, but we considered it dinner and a show. Would go again for a special treat.

It's totally NOT worthy of 45 dollars! The food is VERY salty and tasted cheap. Dishes and cups that the restaurant uses are exactly same as low-priced Japanese restaurants. Staffs didn't even give us the dineout menu (I got the menu from the table behind where I sat). Go there if you wanna waste your money
THE WORST DINE OUT EXPERIENCE EVEN!

If you want a fun experience, Kobe is the place to be! The Chefs know how to entertain while staying professional and polite. The service from the servers was not so great as we had to wave over for another round of beer a few times. Nonetheless, food is excellent, especially the sauteed prawns and seafood sauce!

It’s been awhile since I’ve been there but prices went from high to higher. It was yummy but not sure it is worth it anymore. I could get better quality steak and lobster at any steakhouse for cheaper. I guess you pay for the experience but been there done that a dozen times so I’m not sure I’ll be back. As usual, the two sauces they serve with the food is delicious and that I would miss.

Service and food was great. Didn't rush us which was great.
I didn't like how tight the seating was. With such a high price you should be at least comfortable with the space.
