Average. Cocktails not very good, and wine selection limited. Fried rice was good.

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.

Only thing was they ran out of a few things like, calamari after I ordered and croutons for salad (per waitress)
Lobster took forever cause they over cooked the first one and told us they are cooking another.
Was satisfied that at the end of meal the person in charge gave us a discount off the lobster for taking so long.

The only reason I didn't give a 5-star overall rating was the wait time. I made a 9:00 reservation, arrived 10 minutes early, and waited until almost 9:20 before being seated. This might have been due to Covid-19 circumstances, but several parties came in, stated they had no reservation, and were seated before us.
