Japanese
Here at the "KOBE", we carry on the ancient art of teppanyaki - hibachi style cooking, in authentic Japanese country-inn ambiance.
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 tenderest steak, the freshest seafood, free-range chicken, and garden fresh vegatables....all before your very eyes in true Japanese style.

It was a little pricey but I guess any nice restaurant for a good dinner is on the higher side, the chefs are great and the service is excellent and very prompt .

All your senses will be on fire, from the moment you walk into and are greeted by the wonderful hostess staff, to the constant attention from waitresses for drinks, to the amazing food that dances across your taste buds, Kobe is the ultimate sensory experience. Laughter, exceptional food and good times!

I like the idea of a Teppan-Yaki grill, but we were charged for two rice bowls on the side and we only had one, we never got offered green tea at the end, I’m pretty sure my fillet mignon was given to someone else and I got their New York steak, my kids juices were six dollars each, and they never took my dirty dishes that I kept putting aside, even though they would come around asking if we wanted more drinks.
We do love the show though and the whole experience watching them cook your meal. The chef was great! A lot of my friends wouldn’t go for that cost of a meal with their family unless it’s a fancy or special occasion.

I've been going to Kobe for over 20 years. This was the first time that I was disappointed with the flavour of the steak and dipping sauces. Chef was clumsy.

By far the best experience we have ever had, Max was our chef and he defiantly made this an unforgettable experience for us.
My sister and brother in-law were visiting from Newfoundland and this was all our first time here and I will defiantly be going back. Thank you Max for making our experience excellent:)

I felt the the SocialShopper coupon was just an okay deal. The reg menu is overpriced compared to other teppanyaki restaurants.

The food was oily and salty. The show was too minimal and Wil, the chef, barely entertained the guests at all and did not make an effort to chat with the guests especially there were 2 birthday people on the table.

I had let the restaurant know that it was my daughter’s 19th birthday in advance but they did not take action until I told them at the table which spoiled the surprise.

Now, I can understand why Kobe has to run so many coupon promos.

We sat on the 3rd floor, was full of smoke from the teppanyaki grills (the 1st and 2nd is not the same smokey atmosphere), the teppanyaki chef was great the best part of the dinner for sure, the food quality, flavor and service wasn´t good. overall i don´t recommend this restaurant, the chef performance is nice for a different experience but would be the only recommendable thing for me.

The food was amazing. Wagyu was the best beef we’ve ever had. Although the seating was extremely uncomfortable and cramped, the food and atmosphere made up for it.

Reservation was for 7:30pm, they passed us at 8:10 and then waited until 8:50 to begin the dinner, also too much vapor and smoke from the cooking, extractors should work much better, very noisy and too dark also, and light color too ugly not a relaxing environment

Excellent as always with great food and entertainment. Sharing an entree is the way to go as there’s is plenty for 2. Very pricey though even when sharing entrees.

A night out at KOBE will never disappoint, thanks for the fabulous night out. The food was amazing and the service was awesome, the young boy at our table celebrating his birthday was made to feel extra special and it was great to be a part of.

Always great food and nice atmosphere. A little on the pricy side but they offer GroupOns periodically which are a great deal.
