This was super fun!!! I wasn’t sure what to expect. I have a shrimp and lobster allergy. They were super accommodating. Our server and chef were excellent. Thank you Jet. I didn’t catch our servers name. Loved our meal. No picture of all the meats as I was busy eating. We had the Kobe beef, chicken and steak. All cooked perfect. Thank you! We will be back!
Our chef was awesome and the food was delicious!!
The shrimp tasted like it was going bad. The sauces had some thickener added and were also unpleasant. The cook did a great job. A large party had too much to drink and had an obnoxious local who would not stay at his table. Also the oil used caused the food flavor overall to be off. Lastly the vents were filthy. Overall unpleasant experience.
Loved our chef Scotty! KOBE did an awesome job at social distancing as well. Always our go to place when we are here on the island. THANK YOU!!!!!!
Chef made the experience awesome
Spent my birthday there with family
We got our favorite chef who always is very entertaining. I didn’t get his name though. Food was awesome as always! Service was great!
Fun time with great food.
Prices are really good.
Our reservations was set for 8:30pm. We didn't get to our table until 8:50pm. We ordered within 5 minutes but no chef until an hour after that. There was no compensation either for the long wait.
Good service and yummy food. My family loves Kobe Steakhouse.
Food was very good. Chef was great. Took 30 minutes to get our check once they asked if we were done. And then the check was wrong- didn’t give us the early bird discount. The entire time we waited for our check they never cleared all the dishes in front of us.
We like Kobe and tend to come here for special occasions. The food is good. However, pre and post COVID the service has been marginal at best. We made a reservation for 8 pm and were told to wait outside because the restaurant was too crowded. We were finally allowed to sit inside where we waited for another 10 minutes. They finally seated us and we were greeted by a server who took a drink order. He brought us water. We waited about 10 min for drinks. Soup followed. Then, nothing. About 9:20 our chef finally arrived and started to prepare the food. The manager said she would take care of a round of drinks for our wait. She didn’t.
As stated before the food was good, but the restaurants attention to detail is marginal at best.
We decided the next birthday celebration would not be at Kobe.
It was a good dinner. Staff was great, chef was good at cooking and entertaining.
Awesome service. Felt safe. The chef was awesome.
I appreciate that we were kept separate from the other party.
Same location for 33 years. Entertaining with great food. Excellent value and during COVID we had our own grill and cook for party of 6
Our reservation was at 8PM, we weren’t seated till 8:45PM. And of course, had to wait another 15-20 mins for our chef. At that point, i wasn’t even hungry anymore. stars for the chef’s humor, he really helped lighten up my mood.
We had a 7:30 reservation. We had to wait in the bar for 45 minutes before beings sat. Then we waited 30 more minutes until our chef was ready.
Everything after that was amazing—our Chef, our drinks, our food, but waiting an hour and a half with a reservation was terrible.
Dinner was great. Our Cook was entertaining, funny, and very friendly. Great food, everything cooked just right. Thanks for the fried rice hint😉! Over all was great.
During a world pandemic, just when the state of Hawaii reopened to tourist, Kobe seemed to make the overall experience safe and worth the time. Tables were spaced out depending on the amount of people in your party, staff was very helpful in making sure social distancing was in place and made sure everything was up to satisfaction.
There isn’t a Benihana on island, this is the next best choice!
Fantastic food, great for a date, amazing vibe, and the cooks are usually funny and energetic
The food is good. But, service is slow and the chef at the table doesn't always get the order out in a timely fashion.
We had an amazing dinner. I suggest making a reservation because it’s limited seating!!! Our chef’s name was Jet, he was so much fun and the food was delicious!
Everything was good except for our waiter was a little impatient to take our order. He kept on looking away, so we hesitated saying our order. No interaction, just"okay next". After last person we wanted to add more but he left. Otherwise it was good.
This was my first time to Kobe. I was with a group of 6 for a birthday celebration and it was the perfect setting, experience, value etc. We will continue to go back for date nights and future celebrations. Jette was AMAZING. He kept everyone's attention, was knowledgable, funny and overall a wonderful chef. He made our experience memorable and fun. We will ask specifically for him next time.
One of the best restraunts on Maui & well worth it !
So grateful they are open in the weekends, to serve delicious delights, wait help, chef, hostess, everything is awesome. Consistent yummy-ness! We are planning to invite families, friends to join us at our next visit. Dreaming of renting a bus 🚎, meet at a central point, reserve as many tables as possible in one seating!!! To give back, to let them know we appreciate Kobe, and to celebrate all the employees for their services! Feeling abundantly blessed. Mahalo Kobe!!!
Great overall experience. Also very entertaining.
The evening and food were both great! We are Maui residents and have eaten here a few times, but not since COVID started. It almost felt "normal" to have dinner here - almost like the old days.
Only weird thing is that Open Table sent me an e-mail AFTER we had completed our dining experience and informed me that our reservation was cancelled! Strange since we just finished eating and were on our way home.
Friendly staff, great food and atmosphere. Just a little slow on getting drinks at table. Otherwise FABULOUS
My family and I really enjoyed our dinner at Kobe Steak House. The staff is friendly, kind, funny and the service was Aaahmazing! We especially enjoyed Scotty our chef, our waiters Nelson and Akoni.
We can’t stop talking about how Scotty was so funny and made us laugh all night! Scotty is a great and wonderful chef and we can’t wait to come back and request Scotty at our next visit to Kobe Steak House! Mahalo & Blessings!
Service was great from all staff as soon as we entered the restaurant. Social distancing was in place and my family and I felt very comfortable. Our chef was excellent as well as our servers/waiters. Definitely will come back again!
Quick service and great food...lots of food! Appreciated Kamaaina although we certainly did not expect it during these times. We were just happy to eat out. Mahalo.
Chef made it a very memorable experience.
My husband and grandson‘s favorite place I love the steak and shrimp well worth the long drive from upcountry!
WE LOVE KOBE’s in general; but we specifically make it there for their bomb shrimp/scallop combo dynamite. I cannot say the waiters/waitresses are pleasant because some are there literally to just make money; however, they are lucky that the cooks are serve exceptional customer service; esp. during this time of covid and having to wear their masks the entire time cooking our food over that hot stove.
Personal and engaging, hope it will survive as an inspiration
As per usual, great food, great service, great cook and great Teppanyaki experience👌
Had a great time and had great food....it is hit or miss lately but it was a hit this time. Scotty is the bomb.
Making reservations on OpenTable is quick and easy. Thankful that we were able to reserve a table at Kobe for our family of 6. Due to Covid, we were in, ate and out with ease. Love OpenTable!
