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.

This was my first visit to Kobe and I was not at all disappointed. My husband and I have a night "staycation" downtown and decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner. We made the reservation and we're seated promptly at our 7pm seating, after enjoying a drink down in the lounge area.
I would recommend the experience to anyone looking for great food (I could not believe my prawn dinner portion) and a fun armosphere.

The host walked us over to our table and wanted us to sit right next to the party of four.
When we arrived there were four seats available, and I asked if it was ok for me and my fiancé to sit on the two seats that were not right next to them, so we could all enjoy the experience. She said let me check if there is anyone else joining and I said what difference does it make, there are four seats and if two more came they would sit right next to them and if no one comes then we all enjoy our intimate setting but with a bit of distance.
She just wasn’t very welcoming and it was just downhill from there!!!!

Overalls good experience except the chicken was over cooked. Noted it was a special occasion but they didn’t do anything special for my boyfriends birthday. They did celebrate the other groups bachelor party.

Great Wagyu steak and seafood! Other food are very average or below average. The chicken was especially tough. Prepare to spend lots of $$$$ if you want good food here. The chefs are great and put on a fiery show. Portions are generous, shouldn’t have a problem being full.

Unfortunately we had the pleasure of the Gang Squad showing up (all 10 of them) we were uncomfortable at didn’t realty feel safe.
They did not bother us, but there presence was visible and for good reason I am sure. Will we be rushing back there No.

On the reservation platform (opentable), I indicated that it was my birthday. However, they forgot to greet and give me the birthday fountain at the end of the meal. Later I found out that you need to tell them its your birthday when they are taking your orders. But aren’t they already informed through the online reservation? I felt left out as they sang to the other people who are celebrating their birthday on that night :(

The food is fantastic but for the price I would expect better service. It was very rushed. I hadn't sat down and I was asked for my drink order. I started looking at the drink menu and I was approached for my dinner order. I opened the dinner menu and the cocktail server was back asking for my drink order. My party hadn't finished eating and servers were asking to take dishes away. I think they had us in and out in an hour - not exactly the mood I want for a Saturday night dinner.

i had so much fun celebrating my boyfriends birthday, although when i made the online reservation i said it was a birthday nothing was really said to him. all the other birthday people got something around him when he didn't which i kind of felt bad. but either then that it was great and the food was good! our chef was really funny so made it even better.
