Party of 4, we were promptly seated and had drinks shortly after. Our server was attentive and the chef was a delight to watch and interact with. Background noise was high so it was difficult to understand our chef but that is expected in an open atmosphere such as this. The meal was fantastic.

Very generous portions of food! I couldn't eat it all! Our Chef was great except he had a little trouble understanding my husbands food allergies! He did an awesome job and was nice, but language kept us from communicating. Not his fault! Will be eating there again! We had a lot of fun.

Dinner was excellent as expected. Our chef was not as much of a performer as some of the others but it didn't take away from the experience.

We had a fabulous experience. My partner and I are plant-based, yet we were able to enjoy a great meal at Kobe’s. We ordered the tofu and veggie dinners and asked that they be cooked in oil instead of butter. Great food and entertainment.

I ordered a $45 center cut NY and my wife’s meal was a $45 shrimp and scallop plate. The NY was large and the amount of meat was nice but it lacked flavor and was over cooked (ordered medium rare). I had a $45 filet a couple days ago at Fleetwoods which was a much better value with more flavor and cooked to perfection. My wife’s shrimp and scallop plate there wasn’t much seafood maybe 6 scallops and 8 shrimp and also was pretty bland on flavors. They do offer two sauces to dip food in but both are just OK. The chef was entertaining and we also enjoyed the Hot Sake and Mai Tais. All in all it was just an OK dinner and didn’t feel like the value was there after an almost $200 bill for two. Decent experience but probably will never go back

Our chef was awesome. Hilarious antics and a great grill chef. We thoroughly enjoyed the cooking show. My wife’s opakapaka dinner was really good as was the shrimp and scallops I ordered. The restaurant is older but very clean. They actually required ID to match with our vaccine cards. Kudos to their policy. Very pleased with the experience and would do it again if we had time. Give it a try.

We had a good dinner at Kobe. Service was good, our chef was funny and entertaining. The food was a bit salty, but the scallops and teriyaki chicken were very good. They charge extra for fried rice or garlic fried rice, but the rice portions are large. We had one salmon maka roll which was also good. Our server was attentive and friendly.
One note: you need to show your ID and Covid vaccine card upon entering the restaurant.

Tepanyaki is a fun dining experience. With the regulations on how many people can sit together, we were only 4 at our table. Our chef had been there for years and made it a fun, delicious experience. Would eat there again!
