The word "KOBE" suggests to the gourmet the ultimate in the finest beef, raised on delicacies, and gently massaged to perfection.

Watch as we lovingly prepare the most tender steak, the freshest seafood, free-range chicken, and garden fresh vegetables - all before your very eyes in true Japanese style.

    Unfortunately with so many grills in a relatively small area the extraction fans cannot remove the smell of oil or cooking steak and onions well enough so our clothes and jackets absolutely stink!! Too many people being squeezed into small areas around the grill makes it just uncomfortable and unpleasant. We ordered the Kobe beef 🥩 and lobster 🦞 12oz just under $300 plus drinks, however as we asked to share we were informed that we’d have to pay an additional $20!! Why? Most of the other people sitting around us spent half as much as us but didn’t have to pay the $20 fee “Total Rip Off”

    For a person that comes here often enough it's very frustrating to have gotten my steak that was very well over cooked. Then when provided a second, it was still well done

    The chef was awesome. The service was ok the drink server seemed grumpy. It was a 50th birthday celebration and it was a bit confusing in terms of bringing me a glass of champagne and then charging me for it . Food was good. $400 bill.

    Kobe has a very welcoming ambience and the food was super good! The portion was perfect as it was not too little that you still feel hungry or not too full that you feel like you're about to burst. The staff were polite and welcoming and the chefs were tons of fun! The chefs were really enthusiastic in making our food and they were really funny and impressive with their tricks! I would 100% recommend this to celebrate special occasions with family and friends like birthdays.

    It was our first time and it was a mind blowing experience. Starting from the soup till the end bean sprouts was so delicious. I had filet mignon and i would highly recommend this if you are looking for melt in mouth steak with a fire show in front of you.
