The cooked food was of poor quality.

The scallops were small and tasteless, the vegetables were poorly cooked, again no flavor. We ordered the fried rice, I have no idea how they screwed up fried rice.

We ordered some Sushi too, which was good.

I expected more for the price.
The seating was outside, which was fine.

I will wait till after Covid before going back.

The food was mediocre and nothing to brag about. The filet mignon was not tender (ordered medium) and the mustard sauce was so-so. I ordered a lemon drop martini and all I tasted was lemon juice and had to ask fur a side of sweet and sour juice. This was my first time dining here and I don’t think I will be back.

Very disappointed in the food and service. Our food was cold and the chicken was pretty much cook to death. I explain to the waitress Asia that the chicken was dry and not good she looked at me and giggled and walked off. Our reservation was at 6:30 and we end up leaving there around 9’that’s how long it took us to get our food we waited for crappy food. This place is worst food I’ve ever ate. I get it we have COVID-19 and there’s a lot of restrictions but come on cooking a fresh chicken is not that hard . Care about your customers. I won’t be back.

There was a terrible wind storm happening right when we arrived. It made it impossible to dine outside. They let us in, made sure we were safe and still served us an amazing meal. GREAT place!

I was looking forward in trying the place as it had great reviews. The experience was not what I expected. We felt rushed, the food was kind of cold and our waiter didn’t even bother to offer us final drinks knowing the bar was about to close. It was just such a rush experience.

I took my wife here for her birthday since she's been wanting to go for the Kobe Beef. The experience was amazing and the food was well proportioned, fresh and delicious. The drinks were great also. We had the Teppanyaki experience and it was so worth it. We will definitely be back and bringing our family with us. Our waitress so kind and attentive. I cant wait for our next visit!!

We were able to sit inside with our party, cocktails were delicious as was the lychee sake. We ordered gyozas and the garlic edamame for appetizers. Three of us in our party had the filet mignon and scallop teppanyaki with the fried rice while the fourth person had the chicken teppanyaki dinner with fried rice. All of it was delicious and the service was great!

The food is really good! One of the best steaks I has so far. I highly recommend the Kobe steak and lobster. I gave 4 stars because I waited over an hour to be seated. I had reservations at 7:30pm and didn’t even get to sit down until 8:40-8:45pm

Food was tasty and service was fine, there was live music outside but we were seated inside. The service was good but we had eaten at spaghettinis next door a month earlier and the service and food there were excellent. Given the choice, with same price point, same area I would choose Spaghettini’s for ambiance, service and food.

As always the food is wonderful. We come back at least every other month throughout the year. But honestly, the prices are becoming a little outrageous. Five of us and the bill was $250. We only had three alcoholic drinks. It’s beginning to price out of our range coming back there except for special Occasions a couple of times a year. I hope you can do some thing with the prices.

We have dined at Kobe for years and this was the first bad experience we have had. Food was not fully cooked, vegetables were still raw, chicken was still pink although couldn’t see it because it was so dark outside. Service was awful. Waited 15 minutes when we had reservations, waited to have drinks refilled and waited forever fir our check. Seemed like waitress was running a lot of tables both inside and outside. Time to get more help!

My wife and I celebrated her Birthday. The staff was very gracious and allowed us to dine outside since we arrived early. We loved the Kobe Beef Sliders, salad, soup and the Filet Mignon was excellent. The drinks were delicious and the entertainment by Rick Parma topped off the evening. Our expeience at Kobe's was Outstanding!!!

We've been guests of Kobe's for years. Always a wonderful experience. I am so glad they were able to bring then tappanyaki experience outside to comply with the COVID requirements. We happen to be there on the live music entertainment Thrusday night too so it was wonderful. Come and enjoy the fabulous food at this wonderful local restaurant
