Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "From the wait time in the lounge to the chef who was entertaining everything was excellent! The food was fresh and cooked to our liking! The seasoning of the meats and vegetables was phenomenal! Great place for large groups."

  • "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."

  • "We had a wonderful time at Kobe's celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary. I love their scallops and my wife loves their steak. Our chef was very talented with his knife. I wish he hadn't hit me in the eye with a shrimp, though."

  • "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!"

  • "Kobe was just as we remembered it from twenty years ago--we live out of town. Everything was laid back, pleasant, unhurried on a Sinday evening. Food and service were predictable and good. Will definitely return for a somewhat special dinner in Nashville."

  • "The thing I was most upset about was that they didn't have the orange yum yum sauce. Plus our chef wasn't as lively as other places. He was very quiet. Other than that it was great. Went for prom"

  • "We hadn't been to Kobe's in over 30 years until now. It was just as great as I remember. The filet will melt in your mouth. My only suggestion would be more salad dressing choices. Wonderful food and very fast service."

  • "Just right for two in their early teens and two 70-year-old grandparents on a sprig break tour. Kids were welcomed. Bar selection and service were adequate. Food was way above average and the presentation/show was well done. I would go out of my way to go back."

  • "I love this restaurant I've been coming to it for 33 years. On this visit it took the chef an extreme amount of time to come to our table and cook. Also the chef was not as entertaining as others have been"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "The food was really good. I would probably go back, but I'm not sure I would recommend it based on the atmosphere. It is very dark and I felt the decor hadn't been update since the 80's. There was a large samurai suit on display covered in dust! If you are going to put a spot light on something maybe you should clean it every year or so! I would go back because I know the food is worth it in the end, but would not take people there I wanted to impress or recommend to a friend while visiting Nashville. "

  • "We and the children very much enjoyed our evening with KOBES. This was a Sunday meal at 5:30 and we found it WONDERFUL that our wait was nothing lol...was quick service and left filled. Staff was friendly, all of them. We don't normally get to enjoy such exquisite dining, so when we have the opportunity we will come back. Thank you."

  • "Kobe used to be one of my favorite spots. Now the prices have been raised to the, " only eat here as a visiting tourist level" and the quality of the food prior to being prepared was subpar. My filet wasn't a true filet mignon...it was stringy and full of gristle or something and salmon was fishy. The chef however, very entertaining and did a fantastic job creating at least tasty veggies and rice. Alas, my last visit to what used to be a fun and delicious place to go."

  • "We were greeted by two very friendly hosts and the vibe continued throughout the evening. Hibachi cook was very entertaining and seemed to enjoy what he was doing."

  • "The plates are $20 and up but very worth it. You get salad, soup, more rice, veggies and meat than one man can eat and ice cream. The atmosphere, the chefs and the staff are excellent. Very entertaining and accommodating. Will definitely be coming back anytime we are in town again. You must try it!"

  • "For the value, we are just as happy with Toyama or Shogun. Of course they don't have Kobe beef. So if you want to say you've had Kobe beef, go. The ladies restroom needed a lot of attention for a place that claims to be tops!"

  • "Had reservations and still had to wait :30 mins- early in the evening 6:30. Service started good, but declined rapidly. Food was prepared nicely, cook had no personality. Overpriced compared to other like restaurants, nothing special. Paying for the name on the door but did not meet expectations. For the price, you would think the resturant could afford to update furnishings. Several cushions had tears repaired with duct tape. Tables and grills looked like stuck in the 90's, very old looking and smelling."
