    The service was good, vegetables tasty, steak tough, salmon fair and the overall appearance in the waiting area, dark and dated. There are better Japanese restaurants in Nashville.

    our group bought the coupons on restaurant.com where you buy 35.00 coupon for 10.00. When we went to pay for our tickets, the coupon was only good for the entire group. Not a coupon for each couple. After all of us talking with the manager and showing him that on this website it does not tell you the coupon is only good for the entire group total, not individuals he allowed each of us to use the coupons we had already paid for. Look real carefully on these websites. This particular website does not tell you when you buy the coupon, but only after you buy the coupon it tells you good only for 1 group. Other than this the food was awesome and great atmosphere.

    We went with our family to celebrate a special occasion. The semi private dining room was perfect for this. The food was fresh and flavorful and our chef was very engaging. The hostess and server were a little lack luster. But, overall we had a great evening.

  • Disappointed in Kobe's
    MyOpinion
    Dined on 8/5/2014
    We were really disappointed. The food was just average and because of that, we felt it was over priced. The waitress was very low-keyed, and did not have much personality. Our chef was not engaging. I was also concerned about the cleanliness of the area where we dined. From past experiences at Kobe's and other Japanese restaurants in our area, I was expecting a lot more. I expected the chef to be entertaining and flamoyant. It was a back-to-school celebration for our fourteen year old grandson, but next time we will choose another place. Sorry, but that is our opinion.

    The experience was overall great. We have been here a few times. The server got a little slower towards the end when trying to pay but was great at getting us food, drinks, and refills! She was very friendly. The cook was nice and food was GREAT! A little on the expensive side but nice for a special occasion.

    Since my good girls were 7 and 8 I would treat them to a Kobe dinner. This tradition has no changed as my youngest (21 yes old) graduated from college with honors and and her choice of course to celebrate her success was Kobe Steakhouse. Thank you for making her day, AMAZING!!!

    Our kids went to Kobe Steaks in preschool as part of their learning experience about Japan. Well, my son just turned 14 and always asks to go to Kobe Steaks for his birthday dinner. It never gets old!! The food is superb and it's fun to watch other diners react to the cooking show!

    Try the Kobe beef - the best steak I've had in a long time. Location is in a residential area where not much else is happening. Went to the restaurant on a Tuesday night and it was practically empty, which is a pity for a hibachi style restaurant. Service attentive and friendly. Authentic Japanese.

  • Should have been a fun experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 7/17/2014
    Poor ventilation around the grill area so it was hot and you could smell to much cooking from the other table. Waitress was nice but never asked us if we wanted drinks. The chef was good. Overall, I kind of felt like I was in a run-down hotel. Like the whole experience had seen better days. What should have been a fun experience ended up being....ok, but nothing to come back for.

  • 8yr Anniversary
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 6/23/2014
    Booked a reservation for my 8yr Anniversary dinner. They have complimentary parking in the front for easy access. Checked in at the front desk and they had us relax in the lounge until our table was ready. We had a 6pm dinner reservation on a Monday night.... so the place was relatively quite overall. Once seated with another group, the server took our order and maintained decent coverage with drinks throughout meal. The Chef was pleasant with the typical dry humor you expect from teppanyaki. Food was cooked well and tasted good. They weren't aware of our Anniversary ahead of time, but after they found out.... they brought us a cute little orange with candles and sang to us at dessert. Overall a pleasant experience and I would return.

    My husband and I decided to visit Kobe Steaks in Nashville for our one year wedding anniversary! We live about two hours out of town, so we made reservations for Sunday and drove in Saturday evening. I'm glad we made reservations because this place was top-notch and I can only imagine how busy they must be on Saturday nights! The staff was incredibly courteous and went above and beyond to make sure that everything was great for our anniversary. We ordered the picture cake (highly recommended for special occasions!) and they were sweet enough to email us a copy of the photo to keep. The food was incredible. The service was incredible. The atmosphere was spot on. This was one of the best Hibachi places I've ever eaten!
