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!
Everything was amazing from the food, to the service and all the employees were really nice. The Chef we had was funny and awesome. We had an amazing dinner. Thank you for the great experience!
Lisa your hostess terrible. Mix uo on our sushi.. never got it... the star of the night was scotty!
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.
My family's favorite place for dinner. Always the best food, great atmosphere, and excellent service. Also the best sushi on Maui!
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.
Absolutely enjoyed ourselves. Great servers, cooks, and bartender. You won't be disappointed
Chef was amazing, waiters and waitresses were very rude.
Great food and great experience, go every time we are in Maui and haven’t ever been disappointed.
Excellent meal, ask for Manny, he did a great job as or Chef.
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 have been coming for years and food is plentiful and good. Try the garlic fried rice.
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!!!
I love this place! Went in my wedding dress then went again our last night on the island ❤️They even remembered us!
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.
