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.

The food is amazing! But seating is SUPER tight! Other than that it was as expected! Great food and a great experience. The chef was fun, engaging and super fun.

Great restaurant with awesome food. If you catch a good chef like we did last night it makes all the difference. Thanks Michael for making my dad’s 80th birthday memorable. I have been coming here since 1996 and I will keep coming with family and friends.

Excellent food prepared in front of you! Fun to watch the experienced chef, although I have seen flashier shows in the past with some juggling of utensils and flipping food. Noise level was high, as the upstairs was completely booked - difficult to carry on a normal conversation.

We were squeezed onto a table in the back. Zero elbow room. Chef Max was AMAZING! For the $400 bill we should have had better seating. First time in 30 yrs we were so uncomfortable at the table.

Fantastic dinner and chef was outstanding and entertaining! Only complaint is drink prices are fairly high at 14 for cocktail and 9 for beer. Fabulous evening out and wouldn’t hesitate to go again

The food was very good with the exception of the chicken which seemed a bit over cooked. It was a little tough, which translates to either chicken quality, or overcooking. It was a touch dry, so I anticipate the latter.
We haven't been to Kobe's in VR for nearly 40 years, so it was great to come back. We do remember the dipping sauces to be better in the past. (FYI, other Japanese restaurants have copied your old sauces)

Steak, shrimp and vegetables were excellent

I absolutely love Kobe! I've never had a bad experience there. The chefs are all fantastic, the food is amazing, barre-none! And I've always left happy! It may seem expensive, but you're not just paying for the food, you're paying for an amazingly talented chef to show you a wonderful time! And the hosts are wonderful!

Most of the food was great as usual other than the chicken. The chef put the chicken on the grill before the 6 steaks and then prepared all 6 steaks before even turning the chicken. He then put three tablespoons of butter on it and a lot of teriyaki sauce but the chicken was still extremely dry. Don't order the chicken. The shrimp was also a little fishy and we wondered if it was the previous days shrimp as we were the first group at the restaurant last Sunday. Not as good as previous experiences.

Chef Jordan was unbelievable. Super friendly and delicious food. I have been there so many times but his cook was definitely better than other chefs worth every penny that I spent.

Food was excellent but we were crowded around the table with other groups which made it uncomfortable, and impossible to get to the restroom. A good experience but for the price paid would have expected to sit comfortably and not elbow to elbow.

Food was excellent. The only thing I would want for next time is Lobster on one of the seafood dishes instead of only with steak.

I have always had a good experience at Kobe’s. But the last time I was there being seated with others has never been an issue. The last visit a guy sitting at the same table was very disrespectful and pin pointing at what the others around ordered. Pointing out the the cost effective versus the most expensive. I thought that was just RUDE! I visit Kobe’s almost weekly and spend an average of 400.00-500.00. I don’t need my child’s plate being commented on by people like that.
