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.

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!!!

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.

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!

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.

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!

The service was fairly attentive but felt rushed. We were safely spaced from other diners and felt safe during our visit. This was our second visit to this restaurant in the past couple of visits to Lahaina.

If you want the tepanyakki experience, The Lahaina restaurant provides that - and even during Covid 19- ambience and service was quite good. The chef and servers were friendly and professional. The steak (both filet and Kobe), however, was mediocre. Been to a lot of these style places over the years so I was surprised. Maybe it is part of early reopening during pandemic. But I can’trecommend the food as great based on our experience in late June.

The food was great and it’s a really fun place to meet other people. We sat next to two other locals who had driven from the other side of the island, so the restaurant is pretty popular among locals.

We love Kobe but last night was a rough night. Our waitress was chewing gum! It just rubbed me the wrong way. Our chef had to be very new. The food was cooked well but no conversation, no show and zero personality. Our drinks took forever to get to the table....it won’t stop us from going back but..we will be Leary!!!

We arrived 10 minutes prior to our reservation time, but we weren’t seated until 20 minutes after our reservation time. Once seated, we didn’t have a dedicated waitress. We had to ask numerous times for silverware and our drink order was incorrect. When we corrected the waitress when it was time for a refill, it was still incorrect. We had to wait and then ask for a to go box and a check despite the restaurant already being closed so they should have wanted us to leave quickly. The food was bland and not seasoned well at all. I would never go back again and I love Teppanyaki style food so it was a big disappointment.

We endured numerous off-key versions of the birthday song.
We enjoyed talking to other diners at our table.
