Diner Reviews
  • "We had great food, excellent service, the place is beautiful and the chef was a lot of fun. We loved it =)"

  • "Went to Kobe with my family of 7 to meet a friend for dinner. Never have been here before and given its location, was worried it could be a tourist trap ... but to our surprise, the food was great and plentiful -most could not finish their dinners and had lunch the next day (this included 4 teenage boys). The services was great and our server Shirley was extremely fun even though she was not Norwegian (inside joke here). Will definitely go back when I am in the Orlando area."

  • "This restaurant was awful.. we made a reservation with you, and when we got there the two woman at the desk ignored us, laughing and giggling at something on the computer.the restaurant was basically empty and yet they made us wait an additional 20 minutes to be seated. we seemed like a bother to them. we also told you that we were celebrating a birthday and that went totally ignored as well. Will not go back and will definitely warn others about this location."

  • "We hold our annual company team dinner at Kobe Steaks while attending a conference in Orlando each year, and were not disappointed. Food was fantastic and our chef was quite entertaining. We had guests who had not experienced a hibachi grill before and they were very impressed. The only drawback I can think of was the amount of food - no one leaves hungry! Thanks again - we'll be back next year for sure."

  • "We were celebrating late Mother's day, Mom's bday and a recent high school graduate - they all were acknowledged by the Chef Hikaro?? (I apologize if it is not his name) - anyway, he made the dinner and show a memorable one for my three kids - he engaged them in the food process, encourage them to use chopsticks, invite them to try new food and that for me was outstanding. I thank the chef for being gracious, patience and inclusive - Love it all and my family was appreciative and kept on using the nicknames used by the chef. Many thanks, Bertha "

  • "Sitting at the hibachi grill was not only great food, but also great entertainment. The food is reasonably priced and you get plenty to eat. I chose the Kobe Special which was $30. It came with a crab cake appetizer, steak, chicken, and shrimp on the main course, and a cupcake for desert. "

  • "I am a new fan of Kobe! I tried all of them in my area. This one was probably the worst quality food of them all. The heat must have been on way to high. cuz my son had all black burnt things in his rice. Shrimp taste burn n distasteful! Not a very good experience for someone who is a faithful customer. "

  • "We had a great time in this restaurant. It was full when we got there, of course it was Friday night, but we did not have to wait long to get our table and go in. We chose hibachi which is the chef cooking for a group right there on the table. The show was cool and he was funny, also very knowledgeable. In overall we will come again soon, we had a great date and experience there."

  • "We were seated promptly on our reservation time. Then it began 1. Had to ask 3 different people for a high chair 2. 3 of us ordered one of their speciality drinks. They were all different even though we ordered the same drink and the waitress verified that we ordered and received the dragon berry. 3. Cook prepared 1 persons food at a time. By the time the last person got their food we were ready to leave. Everybody else was finished eating. Food quality was good and the food was prepared good. Every other Kobe style restaurant cooks seafood together, chicken together and beef together. The cook too forever!!!!!!! We will not return."

  • "We took our three teenage kids to Kobe over Christmas break, and were seated right away at one of their abundant cooking tables. Our chef, Eliot, described himself as Orlando's only Puerto Rican Japanese chef! His easy going sense of humor and corny jokes connected with our teens and they listed this dinner as a highlight of our vacation. The food is plentiful and delicious. Nothing too creative, but that's not what you expect at a Hibachi restaurant. It's the interactive show with your chef while he cooks your dinner that makes or breaks the meal. We will definitely go again next time we are in Orlando."

  • "I've been dining at Kobe restaurants for what seems my entire life. I'm 27. It's a shame to see the food portions go down so much over the past several years. I understand the economy has had its toll on businesses, but Kobe prices continue to rise, and the food portions and quality to continue to fall. I suggest a review. This is not such an extreme change that we will venture away from Kobe, however. Our family, friends, and ourselves love everything there is about this small restaurant chain!"

  • "The waiter took for ever to bring my guest and I water. The soup tasted like water and they didn't even want to bring us new ones. The food was WAYYY to salty. I woke up the next morning with the lips all cut. This is the 2nd time I come to this location and it happens. Next, time ( if I ever go again) and it happens I will go to corporet"

  • "We pulled up to the restaurant and were shocked to find it located next to a construction site. It was dark and raining and the self parking was out back by a run down looking hotel and a dilapitated building with construction barrier around it. It seemed very sketchy and very scary so we went to Dr. Phjillips to the Melting Pot instead and cancelled our reservation with Kobe."
