Kobe Japanese Steak House, Teppan & Sushi
We had a reservation at 6 pm, an hour later we still had not been seated. When I approached the reservations desk, the lady was so rude and got upset because I asked her why we still hadn’t been seated specially because we had a reservation and an hour later there was still no sign of us getting any closer to being seated. The food was good but with the rude front of the house it just ruined everything. Will never go here again. I don’t need to be treated badly just because I’m asking why we haven’t been seated yet after still waiting an hour after our reservation time. Worst experience ever!
Seafood tempura platter was big and delicious
We love Kobe. The food is delicious and tasty. Always get the fried rice there. The cooktop food is a enough to split. The $6 split charge includes soup n salad.
I felt that our waitress wasn’t very attentive and some of the food items ran out and weren’t refilled timely.
Best Kobe ever. Kobe from Japan
the service was excellent, she was very attentive, the food was inconsistent and the chef forgot the calamari until everything was cooked.
Seared pepper tuna was good, main course not so much! Chilean sea bass nor the butter New York was good enough to finish!
We had reservations for 730 and we were seated right away. Everyone (party of 5) thought the food was amazing! Wish the chef was more animated and the noise was extremely loud
Kobe is one of our all time favorite restaurants. We always go there for date night and celebrations.
First visit. Good food, good service. We will be back!
Kobe’s is my go to for a special occasions or celebrations. Looking forward to more opportunity’s to go this year.
We had a 7:00pm reso for New Year’s eve. After waiting for 40 minutes (while sitting on a cold granite planter edge because the bar was packed) we asked when we might be seated (and we didn’t ask for the tappan grill, just a table for two). They had no idea when they would have a table.
Yes, we know it was NY’s eve...but they totally mismanaged the evening and were letting people in without reso’s in between folks who didn’t (that’s why they were so far behind). There were still people waiting from 6:30 when we left at 7:40!
We left without so much as an apology. It was our first attempt at eating there and won’t try again.
It was the evening of 12/31 and the restaurant was very busy and crowded. The service was good, considering the conditions, but the ambiance was overshadowed by the noise level.
Made a 6pm reservation, wasn’t seated until almost 7 pm. Worse they sat us in the bar area, which was very loud so we weren’t able to have any type of conversation.
I know it was NYE but they were WAY over booked and it looked like every reservation waited at least 45min to be sat.
Food was excellent as usual.
A lot of noise due to many parties.
Service was slow as usual.
Also, we had reservations and even then had to wait over 12 minutes to be seated.
We were pleased to find Kobe was open Christmas Day. The food was great and a good time was had by all.
Had reservations but still had to wait 30 additional minutes to get seated.
Everything else was good.
Food was superb! We had reservations at 7pm, were seated at approx 7:45, and at about 8:15 a server came for our drink orders. After she got to us the service was exceptionally good.
If it weren't for her and the other waitstaff my rating would be significantly lower.
They were able to add two more people to our reservation, which we appreciated. The teppan chef was just ok...not as animated and interactive as others I've seen. The food was very good. It was VERY noisey!!! Made it hard to converse.
It is normally better than this. The food was not quite a good as normal but still good. Hopefully this was a one time thing.
Kobe is a great place for any occasion. We went for my birthday and the food was excellent. The only complaint I have is the chefs need to understand no means no. Our chef wanted us to catch zucchini pieces with our mouths. My adult son with autism repeatedly said no and the chef tossed it to him anyway. My son sat there, letting the zucchini hit him and fall to the ground, only to have people at the table call him stubborn and stare at him. No means no for a reason.
Awesome awesome awesome
We really enjoyed our dinner and watching it get prepared met some great people it was my boyfriends birthday
The food had no flavor , the waitress rolled her eyes when we asked for teriyaki sauce , and the cook did not cook the rice all the way and did not use salt or pepper on the food .
The food selection was small and not good.. Food Items did not have labels in front so you had to lift open every thing to see what it was and some things I still couldn’t Recognize . A lot of the items that were promised on the menu were not there. It was not a variety of choices for different pallets the champagne was too dry. However the wait staff provided excellent service. I don’t see myself going back or recommending this brunch. .
The ambiance was fantastic, the music, as well as the chef. The food was pretty good.
Awesome experience! Rachael is a great manager ! Thank you 🥰
Nice restaurant good Teppan Grill.
Chef is the best I saw.
The staff was friendly- food was delicious n the price was great!! We will be back soon...
Great restaurant fun time by all in our party, with a really fun chef.
The cook burned my food. When I mentioned it to him he brushed if off
Kobe was an awesome restaurant! The food preparation and presentation was quite good! I had the Caterpillar dish it was amazing. The ambiance was very nice. I was able to enjoy the music venue throughout the dinner! Old school R&B is where it’s at!! I intend in returning upon my next visit to Long Beach!
We alway enjoy our meals here whether at the teppan or the regular dining room. Great food, service and value.
We went for the Sunday Beatles Brunch. The food and service were great. The band was awesome!!!
I highly recommend.
The Crunchy Roll is so good... you may need to order two!
Friendly service and good food! Would recommend to my friends ‘
It was not very busy. The staff were all very nice. the food and show were amazing!
We made a reservation at 7 pm and didn't get sat until 8:15 pm.
Also the server was backed up and kept making dumb jokes to us.. but all our table wanted to do was eat.
Our server was horrible.. but the Teppan chef was good.
For the price tag.. we should get better service and should have had some food comped due to the inconvenience.
Food is ok.
Services are very bad.
Ambiance is boring, make us wait for the chief to come out almost an hour long.
Waiter is not friendly, not helpful whenever ask for assistant.
Chief for Teppaniyaki is not professional as his position supports to be. His expression is like he does not want to work. Not excited, not fun, not friendly, not talk to customers much, mostly just nod or shake head whenever we talk to him. Just cooking not have much entertainment like other Teppaniyaki.
