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 was amazing. Wagyu was the best beef we’ve ever had. Although the seating was extremely uncomfortable and cramped, the food and atmosphere made up for it.

Reservation was for 7:30pm, they passed us at 8:10 and then waited until 8:50 to begin the dinner, also too much vapor and smoke from the cooking, extractors should work much better, very noisy and too dark also, and light color too ugly not a relaxing environment

Excellent as always with great food and entertainment. Sharing an entree is the way to go as there’s is plenty for 2. Very pricey though even when sharing entrees.

A night out at KOBE will never disappoint, thanks for the fabulous night out. The food was amazing and the service was awesome, the young boy at our table celebrating his birthday was made to feel extra special and it was great to be a part of.

The experience was fantastic, the food was spectacular, drink service was lacking; near impossible to get water refills let alone a drink refill.

Always great food and nice atmosphere. A little on the pricy side but they offer GroupOns periodically which are a great deal.

I booked reservation at 7:30pm. But they didn’t seat us till 8pm. What’s the point to book reservation?
After we got a table, we wait 15mins to order, another 15mins for chef finished other table.
And also, the chef only have a little show in the beginning, nothing special and surprise.
Overall, I won’t come again.

overcooked food worse service...why bother asking what the special occasion is when you’re going to stick us at the back corner with all the walk ins

Don’t go here if you know anything about teppanyaki...i may have been ok with the experience if it was $30 per head but at $100 per totally poor value for money

Back to the service, the waitresses and hostesses were extremely rude and stuck up they absolutely did not care whether or not we had a good experience or a poor experience they were there for the automatic tips only and that was evident... I guess they’re just ignorant not to understand that good service equals good tips

At the end of the day this is a location type restaurant you’re not paying for the food or service just the location and the fact that this is an established restaurant... I visited this establishment in the 90s and it was a good experience it’s obviously falling off a lot since then

One of the worst uses of $500 I’ve ever spent and I’ll have to make this up to my way for a long time :)

The groupon is the only way to go to Kobe (it’s. So expensive otherwise)
We found this time that the portion of chicken and steak was very small (I think I counted 6 small pieces of chicken (less than an inch in size) We paid extra for the egg fried rice and it’s now $13 plus tax

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.

Absolutely amazing experience without a doubt! The energy from the Chef, the environment, most of all the food is the best we’ve ever had. :) A go to spot for my girlfriend and I to celebrate our yearly anniversaries! Will be coming back again and again!!

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.
