Overrated food experience was definitely good and then cook chef was amazing and so was the waitress but overall atmosphere and food taste I could’ve made better, Atmosphere wasn’t all that I kind a wish I took my mother to a different restaurant for Mother’s Day so overall it was OK but not amazing and I’m $130 out

We waited an hour and a half to eat because the grill was not working. The service was slow and the place was really loud.

Also had to wait 45 minutes eventhough we had reservations.

We love Kobe. Always a great time and our kids BEG to go. Servers and hostess’ are extremely kind and helpful. My only complaints are noise (can hardly hear people talk) and that even if we have a reservation we ALWAYS have to wait at least 30 min. But, we love Kobe so we will wait. Just be prepared.

My wife and I made reservations for 7:30pm. We arrived on time and were asked to wait a few minutes (no big deal). We were seated at 7:45 despite seeing that there were PLENTY of open tables available, so there was no reason to make us wait unless they were short-staffed.

We sat, and after another 10 minutes passed we flagged down the hostess to let her know no server had stopped by yet. She went into the kitchen to get someone, but again, nobody showed. We waited 10 more minutes, then got up and left. Not one server, busperson, etc. had stopped by our table in the 20 mins we were seated. Not even to bring water.

It’s a shame. The food is supposed to be good here, but because of the service we’ll never know.

Kobe Japanese Steak House is always a pleasure. The food is good and the service is excellent. We often go there with friends to have a good meal, good conversation, and entertainment all rolled up together. We heartily recommend this restaurant.

We had a reservation at 6 and weren't sat until 6:30. No server till 6:50. No cook until 7:25. Dinner around 7:40. Cook was just ok, not very entertaining. The food was WAY too salty, lobster was overcooked. They try to upsell you on your steak by making it seem like you have a choice but don't tell you it's extra. If the service was prompt and the food tasted better, I might return, but as of now, no way.

I was excited to try this place out, it was my girlfriends Bday. We had a party of four, reservations @8pm Saturday nite. We were being told that there will be at least 30 minutes before we could be seated. The place was pretty busy. There was thus one party that arrived late, and demanded to be seated. They eventually left, cursing and saying how they will never be back. It’s a shame some people have no class, or patience. Food was ok. Service was ok. The girl at the front did her best to get us seated, thank you. Chef was great! Very professional. Nice guy.

I would have given this a better rating because of the meal but after waiting 30 minutes to be seated with a reservation and another 20 or so minutes before being waited on it took away from the experience

This is where you go for food as entertainment. Choose the tappan seating. That's where the show is as the cooks flip, twirl and periodically light everything on fire. The onion volcano is a definite crowd pleaser. Between the soup, salad, shrimp and main courses, you will not go away hungry.
