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 price was outrageous. There was a lot of msg added during cooking and the sauces tasted watered down and like chemicals. I ended up with canker sores on my lip and tongue from the amount of msg. The seating was crowded, noisy and the service was inconsistent. We went for a family get together and couldn’t hear each other above the noise. We had been to teppanyaki restaurants many times before and this was by far the worst. We weren’t even asked about having dessert which was supposed to be included in our meal. Terrible!

Our table was not ready for our reservation and had to wait a half hour, we had no interest in sitting in the lounge for drinks as I had my teen with me. The food was absolutely perfect and the chef was totally amazing. We did not receive our green tea at the end of our meal which was on the menu as included.

We ordered "The Ultimate", which costs about $ 75 per person. But it was very bad and all the food was too ripe. We requested for the roast of beef in medium, but the beef was too overcooked. I could not chew the beef, chicken and lobster which were smelled too dry. Other customers who sat at the same table ordered chicken, I guess, the chef cooked the food at the same time for serving food at the same time to all customers. As a result, our meat was too overcook. In addition, we ordered alcohol as well, but the server seemed to make us rush the meal time, asking us to take the Togobox without giving us enough time to enjoy the meal. It was a terrible experience with Kobe and it was not worth.

It would have been a good experience if the 'reception lady' did not come and tell us that she needs our table for the next reservation as soon as our 'ice cream' desserts were served.

My kids had to finish eating their ice cream in 10 seconds. Ridiculous!!!! Outrageous!!!!

We had not been in years but we're pleased to bring our grandson (24) for the first time. That was fun. The place I sat, on a corner and the fellow next to me, really had no place for his plate. Extremely tight. My steak was very tough and yet the others were not. Exstreamly fast service for the price we paid. Our chef was not overly skilled and focused on a guy that happened to have been fairly recent. The skills of the chefs in years past were much more awesome. I would give you a 5 out of 10.

We had been to a similar style restaurant before so we wanted to spend what we thought would be a great date night at Kobe's. It was a little pricy for us but we decided to splurge and take in the experience. When we arrived we found the decor dark and old looking, the rock music loud and surprising that it was not connected to the theme of the restaurant. We were seated with 9 other people. Unfortunately, two of them had had too many adult beverages and were very loud. When the chef arrived, they knew him from a previous visit and kept trying to engage him and get him to drink with them. At one point the chef replied, "not tonight, I am breast feeding." Ugh :-( There was other banter back and forth which really wasn't acceptable and did not involve anyone but the three of them. The chef did not do any fancy knife work and seemed to only engage with the two previously mentioned guests. I began watching the chef on the grill next to us and wished I was at that table as he seemed to be more of what we thought we were getting. The chef on the other table also cooked many food items simultaneously so that diners enjoyed food items together on their plates. Our chef cooked one thing at a time. I had prawns and scallops and my husband had a steak and prawns. All of these items came at separate times. For the money spent, it is truly not worth it. Not a good experience at all and I would tell anyone that asks to spend their money somewhere else. So disappointing!!!

The food is not the best quality, but the atmosphere was fun, I like the cook. 3rd floor was a bit too warm, people had to sit too close to each other, bare in mind that the person next to you is not your friend. The steak was not of high quality, well I could only give it four stars.

Third time at Kobe. I like the food and service is top-notch. You just have to turn your head to look for a server and she/he would be right there. Tempura is great but that is also what leaves lingering deep fried food smell in your clothes. I had to dry-clean my suit. So one needs to dress casually. The amount of noodle in ramen soup could be more generous. Overall a fun place to be for a casual occasion.

It has certainly cornered a niche market; too bad the average family could never afford to visit more than once.

Great experience. I wasn’t impressed with sitting with 6 strangers while the chef was cooking the food. Also, I felt cramped. There wasn’t alot or room. I has a corner seat and the man beside me and infront of me kept hitting me with his knee. He also needed more space with eating and his own elbow room which extended into my eating space. The chairs were too tall, I needed a foot rest which wasn’t available. The chairs had no padding. I sunk fown in the middle of the chair and could feel the frame of the seat. The food was good and the over all experience was good. Just the few things mentioned above.
