                                                We went on Mother’s Day and yes it was busy. The wife and I ordered medium rare and medium well filet mignon mashed potatoes and veggies. That’s what the menu said came with the filet mignon. It took a long time for our food to come out. When our meals came out they had Fried rice on our plate, no mashed potatoes. My filet mignon was under cooked to rare and my wife was under cooked to medium. We asked the waitress what happened to the mashed potatoes and she went to check with the kitchen. When she came back she said sorry we’re out of mashed potatoes which I thought was weird because the restaurant only opens at four we were there at six and it seem kind of quick to run out of mashed potatoes. I don’t think they ever had mashed potatoes but I don’t understand why the waitress didn’t just say we don’t have mashed potatoes today but would you like something else? Anyways the wife did not want rice so she asked the waitress if she could have more veggies, The veggies never came until way after I was done eating. We waited so long for the veggies that the waitress then came and said, someone tried to bring you your veggies but you didn’t want them? What happened? We replied, no one ever came out and yes we want our veggies. Our waitress was fine but I will blame it on the kitchen that ruined our experience. My wife asked me if I wanted dessert but there was no way I was investing any more time in this place. Not a good experience for us we will not be returning. No alcohol was ordered. $107 total

                                                Nice environment. Food was good but not great. It needed some spices or something. A little bland. A little pricey but with that being said, if the food tasted great then I would have minded.

                                                It was our 1st time dinning there for teppanyaki. The Chef did not do anything special while cooking. We asked for at least one thing. He cooked our food in 15 min and left. We had burned fried rice and dry chicken. I don't think we will be returning. Also, our cups had lipstick on them. We just asked for new cups and took our food to go.

                                                Went there for my sons 13th birthday. From the time we walked in to the time we left, it was a class act. Ambiance, food and service was excellent. Can’t wait to go back.

                                                I have been coming to Kobe's for over 5 years. This time seemed like the cook was having a bad day, he was not rude, but the excitement was not there The room was loud due to a party next to our area. Overall food was excellent

                                                We had reservations but ended up waiting an hour. It was the same for others who had a reservation as well. They didn’t really communicate what was going on anything the hostess just kept saying they’ll call us when our table is ready. It was already late so we couldn’t even leave to eat somewhere else. They have events with live music so I’m thinking maybe that was a factor. Service from chef and waiter was great! Food was a tad on the salty side for me but was good overall. The steak was amazing. So tender and delicious. Would come again but on a weekday to avoid unforeseen wait times (even with a reservation) and the extra noise from event.

                                                This place has consistently been extremely good. This week it was not the case. We were sat at our table fairly quickly. When we sat down the table area was dirty with food and very sticky. The server got the table cleaned again and we started over. The cooking entertainment was ok but definitely not as good as their normal. The food was not very good. Chewy New York steak for three of us. The chicken was hard and not edible. A new piece of chicken was cooked and it was marginally better. The fried rice was over cooked. Conversely the filet mignon and shrimp were delicious as usual. The service was poor. Drinks (water) went without refills. When you are spending over $200 for two adults and two children you should be able to get clean tables, good service, and delicious well cooked food. Hopefully they get the right servers, bus person, and cooks that the restaurant has shown to have on our previous visits.

                                                The "noise" level starts out high per table (for the 'show') then everyone starts just eating and the table gets very quiet. I love teppan and Kobe is right up there as one of the best.

                                                Very expensive for what you're actually getting. Very slow service. Not much of a "show" by the chef. Everything overcooked, flavorless, and very pricey. Incredibly loud.

                                                Our experience was not as good as our previous visits. The entrees were OK, but the veggies were over cooked. Also, 2 tables over were a group of children with a few adults that kept screaming and laughing loudly. No one seemed to realize that there were other patrons in the restaurant.

                                                Despite reservation, we had to wait at least 30 minutes to get seated. After seated we waited another 30 mins for the staff to get our orders in. We had to ask someone to get our server to finally order. The food was too salty. We ordered the deluxe trio and the lobster, steak and scallops all tasted the same—- soy sauce !!!! I’ve had better teppanyaki elsewhere. Would not be returning.

                                                Good date night but the cook didn’t give us the best show I was kind of disappointed at that only because it was my boyfriend‘s first time ever doing a teppan dinner and the for the price I paid for dinner I was expecting more maybe I’ll try Benihana next time sorry to say that they try harder there

                                                Took my brother who turned 14 and 3 of his friends. We had the row to ourselves which was nice and the Chef was great. Very personable and just felt personal. Boys would not stop talking about it and how good the food was. They brought ice cream and sang a Japanese style song for him which was really nice of them.

                                                We had Daniel as our chef and he made our dinner super special. He was super attentive and made sure we got everything we needed. We were there to celebrate my friends birthday and he said it was one of the best birthdays thanks to Daniel. We hugely appreciate the service and will be coming back soon.

                                                We came to celebrate my twins 17th birthday. We had reservations at 6:00 but then there wasn’t a grill, so we had to wait a little bit. They put us at a little grill for 3 people, which was fine. However the server was very slow to get to the table and didn’t pay attention to us once our food was out. Three people knew it was their birthday and nothing special was done to acknowledge them. It was a little disappointing.

                                                Disappointed they ran out of salmon by mid-evening (8:30pm). I was looking forward to their Ceasars salad with salmon. Instead, I went with shrimp (6 pcs) on the salad. 6 shrimp didn't justify the price. Besides that, they need to do something about people standing around the bar area, because as it getting crowded, they spill into the dining area.
