Nothing special. We have gone here since the 80's every year. We will not be back. The steak arrived in a pile of cut up pieces all different sizes on the grill. All meat was medium well (even you asked for medium rare). The chef tossed a hot shrimp which hit my 7 year old granddaughter on her lovely dress. The hot shrimp bounced to the floor. Well too bad for that dinner plate short a shrimp.
There are many lovely restaurants in Lahaina. We will enjoy them and cross Kobe's off our list.

The decor needs a makeover, we have been coming for the the last 6 years while
on summer vacation, it’s needs a makeover, flooring, paint, lighting, fixtures, it’s just needs a make over.

Food was great and the chef was fun.

If you are interested in a Benihana kind of experience, you get a pale version at Kobe. The food was adequate but not up to the quality of other Japanese Steak Houses. The cook used no seasoning on the meat and didn’t cook our steak to proper temperature. The fried rice was ok but had egg shells in it. The performance you get at normal places like this was rushed. Overall, not very impressive, wouldn't go back.

This was probably our tenth time at Kobe's. It was probably our least favorite visit. I would have given lower stars for service (the chef) but our waitress was awesome. She was super friendly and helpful and on it. Our teppanyaki chef seemed like he would rather not have been there. There were mistakes with our orders and the food all tasted the same. We were disappointed this time but will still return because the other 9 times were amazing!

Food was average at best, they nickle and dime you on everything so beware. We've been to numerous hibachi restaurants and the quality and quantity of food was sub par. No real flavor on the food, we always add fried rice but they do it per person not 1 order to share and when you do order, they take away your white rice. You don't get a salad like you normally do. We had to try it while on our trip.

Not a great spot as it has no view and it’s in a below average location. Parking fee is $5.00 and is located directly behind the restaurant. Needs a little updating and the staff is definitely sub-par compared to other establishments in Lahaina.
