Fairly classic Japanese grill experience. Food was very good and well prepared; chef was also entertaining.

A good solid Kobe experience. Just what you expect when you go to a place like this. They did a good job with their Covid protocols.

From the moment you step into the restaurant from the hostesses, to the waiters, to the chef, to cleaning staff, everyone has so much aloha! They take care of your every need. The food is the bomb as always, and the ambience and chef experience is why we always return!

Table was sticky, iron griddle was black/dirty in the center area, with oil accumulated on the side. The food was overly oily and mediocre at best. The cook was nice and tried to make it entertaining, but there was no attention to detail (how everything is cut, cooked and presented).
Disclaimer: this was my first teppanyaki outside of Japan so maybe I had too high expectations.

Only half the tables were utilized due to social distancing. It felt like a safe dining experience & were attentive to dining needs for our family members with a gluten allergy. Their attentiveness to detail was appreciated. Great tasting meal!

Food was flavorless. We has steak, chicken, shrimp and fish. The chicken was the only good thing. Fried was bland-I wouldn’t return. We also Had to wait an hour after getting to our table while the chef cooked for the other side of our table and that was with a reservation!

It was the beat Hibachi we have ever had! Everything was cooked well. The only complaint is that we did not get service until 30 mons after our reservation. We were very hungry, but once we got the food everyone was very happy.

We had a misunderstanding about our reservation made through OpenTable. We admitted fault and were open to any help the restaurant manager could give us. Instead she was rude, completely inhospitable, and made us feel unwelcome. The hostess and waitress followed her lead and treated us like we were a nuisance. We’ve been to many Kobe locations and never had such an unpleasant experience. Luckily, our chef Jet was incredible. He saved the whole night. The busser and bartender, whose names I didn’t catch, were also really nice.

Delicious food, great drinks and chefs. Server asked us if we wanted what ended up being all kinds of upgrades without mentioning extra fees which felt a bit sneaky and hard to hear with noise and masks on.

We arrived at the Restaurant 15 minutes before our reservation at 7:00. We were sat promptly at 7:05 it wasn’t until 7:40 that our chef came to our table to cook our food. He was very quiet. The food was cook great just lacked flavor. The table next to us that’s attached was very loud. Wasn’t my favorite place.

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!

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.

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.

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.
