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!

Great food, bad entertainment. Singer is loud which would be fine if they were good. I’ll go back but as a special request, far from the stage.

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

Since service was outside, the ambience rating was lower..it got dark, as there was not enough lighting and no outside space heaters..

Large outdoor seating area with very nice lighting. Three or four large teppanyaki grills around the dining areas to watch the meal preparation. Perfect for a date and for large parties. I will be coming back for dinner very soon.

Despite having to serve in the parking area, they did a great job making it nice with mobile grills and lighted tents. It was really enjoyable and good was good.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions my table was outside in a small part of a patio. The service good and the staff were very attentive. My meal was OK but my filet that I had ordered as medium rare was overcooked and a bit tough. A bit disappointing but a fairly good meal.

I did respond to your general email the day after we (there were 6 of us) were there. I stated that all of the food was significantly over cooked and it was a shame to treat such quality product that way. Maybe it was the portable flat tops and the cooks were not use to them. We were planning on returning with some other friends this week but have changed our minds. I am not willing to roll the dice on another over cooked meal.

We have eaten there before (pre covid) and it was good.

Kobe never disappoints.. Patio dining only available right now. While you miss the more immersive cooking presentation from the pre-Covid days, at least you get the taste of the real thing now! Would absolutely recommend!

Didn't enjoy it. Yes, food was good, but servers forgot about us after seating, didn't borher to talk about menu when we finally got their attention and what's more important- restaurant did not have any propane heaters for the patrons and nights are still on the chilly side. I understand Covid is hard on service industry but hey, if you neighboring establishment (Spagettini) has taken over parking lot, put heaters in and so forth we're going there next time.
