We were seated over 30 min after out reservation and they forgot to make my food at the tepenaki table. The food was ok but I was very disappointed in the overall experience.

Our server and cook were great but manager, hosts and the experience was one of the worst experiences.

This place needs to stop taking reservations if they aren’t able to accommodate, we waited an hour for a reservation at 7 and every time I asked I was rudely told there was no update. Finally sat us at the bar, which we did not request. We requested to move to which we sat for 30 min before someone asked about our drinks.
For what you pay, we deserved better…

Do yourself a favor and head over to a more established place like Benihanas there’s a reason why they’re always booked.

We arrived early for dinner on Thursday, November 25, 2021. We were seated early as well. Staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. The food and drinks were wonderful. Our cook went out of his way to have a conversation with us. He didn’t rush to prepare our meals. Our server checked in on us a number of times throughout the evening. We would recommend this Kobe Japanese Steakhouse.

Very dissapointed with the price and food. I ordered a house salad (pricy and aweful) calimari (very pricy but hardly any calimari) and a sushi roll (pretty good). For a resturant that is pricy I expect a REALLY GOOD salad. Not and small bowl of iceberg lettice one cucumber and tomato.

Celebrated my 10 year anniversary here. Didn’t want to do teppanyaki so we settled for dining which was easier to reserve a table. Service is as great and took care of us the entire time. Food was delicious and moderately expensive. Little loud from the customers who ordered teppanyaki, but could still hear ourselves talk.

Filet and Lobster was good....so was the rice. Chef was entertaining and did a great job. Service was a bit slow...had to flag down people to order another round even though glasses were empty for quite some time. Place seemed a little dirty though to me. The prep area where the chefs stand should be cleaned. Also, when a couple left they barely wiped up the table tops for the next round of customers. Price was a bit on the high side...but ok...inflation. It is what it is.

I wanted to give this 5stars, but when we arrived for our reservation we waited for 10 minutes, and the host came to tell us they didn’t have a table for 2 to seat us. They wanted to sit us with another family party and the Teppan table. I had to explain that it wasn’t the ambiance we desired for our special evening. I had to ask if we could wait for a table, and the host said yes for 15-20 additional minutes. I asked if there was a bar and she pointed to it. There was no seating at the bar, so we ordered a drink and stood around. Thankfully the live band was entertaining. If not for them, my mood would’ve even more bummed.

The restaurant has 4 different experiences. The teppan is great for a good show. The tables are nice for a intimate dinner. The sushi bar is good area to congregate. The bar is nice and loud with multiple TV to watch sports...and occasionally has live music.

We made reservations for 10 - at 6pm - we didn’t get seated till almost 7 - yes you were busy, but why make reservations??
We had a young baby in our party - the wait was not helpful.

I have made reservations twice at this restaurant and have always been on time. I have a party of three. They always make us wait at least an hour while they seat larger parties that have later reservations than we do. I know this because we usually wait in the lobby and can hear them discuss it. I understand that it takes people as long as it takes to eat but the wait times are difficult with a child. Moral of the story is being a snack.
