My husband and I had a great experience at this restaurant. The service was excellent! Drinks were also fantastic. The food was good, but seemed very much like any other hibachi style food. A little on the expensive side. Overall great experience 👍
Food was sooooooo good. I had the Kobe Jumbo, which had steak, lobster and scallops. Honestly the best tasting teppanyaki I’ve had. I would choose this place over Benihana’s anyday.
Our chef seemed like a rookie with the normal routine onion volcano/choo choo train. Not a lot of flair or jokes, but over all very good. We were able to hear the jokes of the red hat chef next to us and he was able to get us to laugh along.
Would definitely come back.
My wife and I visited Kobe for my 60th birthday. The steak and shrimp was great, be sure to upgrade to the filet. We were so lucky to have another couple share our table who just got engaged! They were great to talk to, and congratulations to the happy couple from California!
We had a reservation and were seated immediately and served drinks and soup. There was about 30 minutes after that where we just waited at our table, but the amazing chef and spectacular food were worth the wait. The value as far as the amount of food you get for the price is great! We all ate until we were beyond full and had a little bit left over.
June 4 2021 reservation at 6:00 pm. We were seated upstairs. It was so warm and hot; a/c was running very su
The service was friendly & courteous but the food was not up to the standard that we have come to expect from other Kobe’s that we have eaten at. To my knowledge we have never paid extra for the fried rice with a chosen meal. We chose shrimp & steak for $35.99 & assumed that included soup, appetizers & rice but each of us paid extra for the rice. The vegetables were cut way to large & the flavor just wasn’t there. No seasoning so very bland. I had to ask for silverware instead of chopsticks & some soy sauce for flavor!
Our experience this time wasn’t as good as it was before. The food was extremely salty, one order was incorrect and one order the chicken was undercooked. Our server was rushing all the time so we had to repeat our order multiple times but one was still wrong. Our chef wasn’t as entertaining as the others which could have turned our night around. Oh well just won’t go back.
Food was really good. We enjoyed our hibachi experience. Steak was tender. Shrimp was succulent.
Our chef was absolutely fabulous. My feedback is that we had a 7:00 reservation and they didn’t even start on our food prep for nearly 40 minutes. There seemed to be confusion at the door where to seat us. Our waiter was attentive and apologized fir our wait and did fix the situation. Once again our chef Brian was fabulous. We would visit this restaurant again.
Disappointed in food, it was somewhat tasty but very mushy vegetables, dry fried rice, shrimp tough and steak over cooked.
Chef was pleasant. We have eaten at this restaurant a couple of years ago and it was excellent. Thought we would try it again as we had not traveled anywhere because of Covid.
Probably will not return.
We enjoyed our dining experience at Kobe. The wait staff was great, the table cook/chef put on quite a show while at the same time cooking each entree to perfection. The portions were huge (doggie bags provided) and the prices were very reasonable. Even the drinks were a reasonable price. And to top off the meal, we were served strawberry ice cream as a birthday treat! Great time! Good people, good food and good fun!
Have dined here many times over the last 20 years. As always, Food was excellent. The only downside to this place is they seat you at your reservation time, but don’t get food preparation started for some time. Last night we waited at least 45 minutes and another time in the last three years it was an hour.
The last two times we visited, including the most recent, the bill has been wrong as they included drinks we had already paid for in the bar.
Food was amazing! Tappenyaki chef was amazing!!!! We loved everyone and everything! Definitely will be back.🌺🌴🌴🌺
Our order got messed up but what we received was very good and our chef try to correct as much as he could on the fly
Absolutely outstanding as always! Love this restaurant & wish I could frequent much more like I used to. My only annoyance, which takes a lot for me to note, was the server in the waiting/bar area never once approached me to even offer water while i was waiting for my friend. And he stood there watching the Dodger/Angels ball game on the tv. Other people had water & drinks. Other than that, the staff was excellent as always. Mahalo nui loa to everyone there!
We had a good time at Kobe Steak House. They were really good with spacing us out at each table for social distancing purposes.
The food was good! Our teppan chef was entertaining and polite. He cooked our shrimp and steak to perfection. The kids had a blast watching the chef prepare and cook our food. A must when on Maui.
Food was horrible, cook very inexperienced, atmosphere as very loud.
Always love dining at Kobe! Good food and service consistently!
JUST MARRIED- we were told it’s a locals place and in our opinion that’s a good thing! The food was very good we split the lobster combination and had a couple Maitais. The Teppyinyaki chef was friendly and engaging. The hostess and all staff were very kind and welcoming. We will make this a normal for any return trips!

Typical Japanese steak house. Frozen drinks were good. Hostess was very nice especially.
Food was amazing. We’ve been going there for several years, never disappointed!
Good food. Casual and friendly a little loud with happy birthdays
Another really fun evening at Kobe. Food is excellent, portions good sized and Chef Joseph was hilarious! Our kids always want to be sure we hit Kobe every time we’re on Maui!
Great chef and waiter. Food was delicious.
Very good food and experience. Chef was very entertaining
However Bathroom had a really strong sewer vapor smell needs attention.
We ordered the most expensive combo: Filet, lobster, and scallops. We asked to replace the scallops with shrimp. The served us double scallops, and the lobster, but didn’t serve us filet or shrimp. They eventually brought the shrimp but we never received our filet mignon, but we did receive a bill for it.
It was very good! We had dinner there in our last night in Maui before traveling home. I wish I remembered everyones names!
The place never disappoints. Food is fantastic and fresh.
The sauces should be sold at the front door. They are missing a big opportunity to add revenue.
Our service was great from when we entered, to the chef and the meal. Have been to numerours Teppan places and this is Authentic!!
Great chef! Loved the experience, the food was incredible.
Poor service and food quality
Crazy awesomeness. Food was off the charts. The chef was hilarious.
Always a great experience
This restaurant has great potential, the decor hasn’t been updated in many many years! The food was ok, not great; the opening soup was a mouthful of overly salted fishy brown yuck. The lighting is very odd, depending where you sit. The hood vents above each flat top station need a good cleaning.
Love the Teppanyaki style of cooking and the interaction with the chef. With COVID-19 restrictions in place (face coverings) it makes it difficult to converse with the chef; totally beyond the control of the restaurant. Glad they are able to be open at all.....
Scotty was our chef and he was a confident and capable showman who delighted us with his entertaining experience. We were socially distanced from the other couple at our table and it was sooo nice to mingle maskless with fellow tourists, something that's usually a major highlight of our travels. My filet steak melted in my mouth although it was prepared medium well at my request. I got enough food for two meals. We totally enjoyed this evening from start to finish and most highly recommend Kobe Maui. Tip: Parking in their lot is free if you park in a space marked Kobe.
Been here numerous times. Always punctually served. This visit we were seated and waited for 10 minutes for the soup and then 20 minutes before our chef appeared. It was as if we were waiting for a chef to complete an earlier table. Food was very good but the wait was excessive and no one explained any circumstances for it.
We have a great time. Food was a lot and very good. The chef was hilarious and took care of the person in our group allergic to shellfish. Our server was super friendly and was on it. Great Night.
Great place. Fun atmosphere. Good price. Located in downtown Lahaina.
Poor service, they forgot us. Over all wasn’t impressed or pleased with the food. The garlic fried rice had so much garlic it made me sick.
