    The hostess had our OT reservation ready for us. We had a few laggers in our party of nine and they were very accommodating to a short wait until everyone arrived. The beverage server and order taker was prompt and attentive. Then the teppanyaki chef came out. He was very skilled as you would expect, however the entertainment value of this chef was through the roof! We laughed nearly non stop and the food was delicious.

    I don't think Kobe Steak House pays any attention to OpenTable reservations. At around 6:00, I looked at OpenTable to see availability that evening and saw that every time slot had availability. We had looked at another Japanese Steak House but they had limited availability so we chose a 7:30 at Kobe. We didn't get seated at our table until 8:15 and they didn't finish filling the remaining spots at our table until 8:25. There were no apologies and it just seemed like business as usual to the hostesses.

    We have been to Kobe steak house in other locations so we knew we would have a good experience meeting some old friends for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised that this Kobe did not charge extra for fried rice and noodles were also included with the meal. There was more than enough food for everyone. The chef did not do the flip the shrimp trick to each person, which I was happy for. I hate that. The filet was cooked perfectly and tasted great. The shrimp was also very good. My wife said that her chicken was plain and lacked flavor. All in all a very good experience and we would return here if planning another dinner with friends.

    Service was mediocre, had to wait 20 minutes even with a reservation. They use filler food to insure you do not get a lot of meat. For example we ordered Stirling sirloin and we got 8 pieces of meat and 10 pieces of potato. Don't waste your time.

    We have been here before and were very disappointed, plus it was my husband's birthday, and he hadn't received it yet. The manager told us it wasn't good on Sundays. It doesn't say that when you read the information for on their club. Kobe's would have honored the fact that it was his birthday, anyway, and given him the $30 off. SUPER RIP OFF. More expensive than other places, next time I will stick with the one in Epcot. I'm a Floridian, not smart marketing for this restaurant.

    We were surprised to find out there was an early bird special (pleasant surprise!). All went well up to this point. Chef was fantastic! Service was great. Then the bill came. I gave the server a $50.00 Visa gift card to use. She ran it through and it declined. I told her to try again. She did and it declined. I now had eye rolling and attitude from the server. I told her to ask a manager for assistance. Of course the manager was able to help. I did not receive an apology or anything from the server. Her tip went down and I regret not lowering it more but they split it with the chef. My kids love the place and we would go back, especially for the early bird pricing.

    I took my wife and three boys to Kobe's while on vacation near Orlando for a week. We ate out everyday and this was by FAR the best dinner we had. We found this place in Chandler, Arizona originally and this place took it up a notch. Great show, food was amazing ( steak and chicken with an extra side of fried rice like always) good sake shot for the birthday and they sang happy birthday and my kids loved the cupcake. Definitely stop by if you can! The coy fish they had in the waiting area made my kids happy and entertained.

    Kobe Japanese steakhouse is our absolute favorite restaurant! Atmosphere is fun and energetic - the staff are very accommodating to likes and dislikes to make the dining experience even more pleasurable. Food is excellent and no one leaves there hungry. We always have a to go box - and is great for lunch the next day. Great value for the price. Will visit again and again. They have a great rewards program as well.

    Dined on 4/26/2014
    If you like hibachi with your butter, then you won't be disappointed. I honestly couldn't believe the amount of butter slathered on absolutely everything. It's no wonder my stomach started gurgling in disapproval soon after we left. On the flip side, the vegetables were nice and fresh, the meat all good - but it would have been better if they weren't coated in butter. I honestly think the noodles are an afterthought & I didn't think the noodles were necessary. The "fried rice" was simply rice, fried with butter, soy sauce and no vegetables. I honestly can't remember the chef using any seasoning (aside from butter, and more butter). Not what I was expecting. At least the sushi was good.

    The restaurant, food and service were all good. The problem was getting seated. I had requested a table in the less popular dining room instead of at the Teppanyaki Grill. When I arrived there was not a single table in the dining room occupied. I was given a wait time of 5 to 10 minutes. As I waited for what turned out to be 30 minutes I saw several other parties come in without a reservation and since they requested a table in the dining room they were seated immediately. I finally asked a different host for a table in the dining room and didn't mention the reservation. We were seated immediately.

    I always enjoyed dining at Kobe's because I know I will always receive great service & food. My last current visit was probably my favorite so far because our chef was very engaging to the customers. He kept calling me his son while he was cooking. It was a joke a course, but this added fun while watching him cook our food. The other customers thought it was funny. The chef made some very humorous jokes from random things. For example, he said, "The vegetables are from Wal-Mart because Wal-Mart has everyday low prices." The servers are very efficient to clear out dishes & refill your drinks. If you are looking for an entertainment dinner at reasonable prices, then head on over to Kobe's today!!

    We chose Kobe because it was close to Epcot and offered teppanyaki. It was a fabulous experience for our group of 5. The food was abundant, fresh and superbly prepared by our very entertaining cook, Kenny, who put on a great show. The restaurant could use a bit of updating but they should keep their winning formula for food and fun. Penny was also a great server. Efficient and attentive.

    We used open table for a reservation and when we arrived, we were told there was an additional 90 minute wait. They do not use open table to properly set reservations so unless you are good with that, expect to wait 60 - 90 minutes when it is busy. We stayed for an hour and when we were told it was still another 30 minutes, we ended up leaving. We did have a few drinks and an appetizer to attempt to pass the time, however the wait was too long and we ended up leaving before having dinner.

    We were frustrated and disappointed with our visit. Our reservations were at 7:15 pm, we were told when we arrived that there would be a 15 to 20 minute wait, but we were not seated until a full hour after our reservation time. When we were seated, the service was adequate but nothing special. Our chef did the bare minimum in terms of food preparation entertainment. In addition, he didn't speak much English and so compensated by repeating over and over again "too much sake" which might have been a joke appropriate for adults but we also had 10-16 year olds at the table. The food was fresh and prepared well, but given our other disappointments it did not save the meal experience for us.
