This was a birthday dinner for my adult daughter, A dinner out with my wife and our 1 minor child. I have been to Kobe in Honolulu where Im from orignally and this was a first visit for our Ohana here in the desert where we all reside. My wife and I were not impressed our Daughter and son seemed to enjoy. An older. Fillipino looking woman came to say she was covering for our waitress and she was a bit abrrassive and had to check if calamari was avail for appetizer we ordered multiple ones but she was awkaward and came back to say yes and what she brought was overdone. She thankfully left us with good waitress. Our cook was not very good and seemed sloppy. He overcooked steak a bit and shrimp. Our bill was 340.00 and we tipped cook 40 dollars and staff 60. Again in Hawaii the chefs are trained trafitional and really have a more authentic Japanese feel. This was more like going to a Mongolian dinner the garlic spicy fried rice was terrible in my eyes greasy and mushy grains. The onion volcano was poorly excuted. Chefs used to be thourghly trianed in knife skills and all ours did was tap beat like music with knives and spatulas. He cracked eggs on back of spatulla no real trick in that. Messy presentation. I will not recommend this place and feel cheated for overall experience. The waitress we had was pleasant and they did remember to sing Happy Birthday but forgot to light candle and had to locate and redue. We overheard other groups get theirs done correctly but it was done and daughter enjoyed it. We only enjoyed poke appetizers my wife and I asked for a box to take home our entrees which was enjoyed by our older son who did not come. My wife and I felt weird to say anything and didnt want to upset our daughter who seldome eats out with us. She would have been upset if we had spoken up about this and we did not want to ruin. Teppan Chefs need to train properly no fry cooks with sloppy skills please.40$ tip was left in pitty. Pending review.

Since moving to general area 6.5 years ago we've driven by restaurant a zillion times and said to ourselves "one of these days let's eat there (we eat out all the time)". Excellent meal and friendly staff. Thank you very much. We will return.

we waited about 15 minutes before a waitress appeared and she didn't bring part of our order and the cook was barely doing his job.....we like the cook's banter and there was none of that...disappointing for our grandchildren!

Had a wonderful experience at Kobe. When we arrived for our reservation the hostesses let us know immediately that they were running behind schedule and offered us to sit in the lounge while we waited. Alejandro at the bar was very personable and friendly, he initiated conversation and poured some fierce cocktails to hold us. When we were seated the hostess and hostess manager were super friendly and upbeat. Florida our server was diligent in refilling our drinks and our chef Alex was humorous and professional. We enjoy Kobes for our special occassions!

The taste became not so good. Very oily and too salty. Used be much simpler and lighter taste but our Cheff put so much butter, salt, etc. Not taste like Japanese food any more (I am a Japanese). We used to love to go there a lot but may not return. Too bad because this was a fun restaurant w family.

We love Japanese steakhouses, so we were excited to try this one. The valet parking was a nice option and we always take advantage of that service when available. One thing, the cook was amateur in his 'fun' style with the customers. Just kept saying "whooo" constantly. No 'egg roll' or 'Choo Choo train' or 'volcano', just whoooooo. Weird, but we will return regardless of the odd chef's interaction.

The food was delicious. The only thing that disappointed me is that when we booked on Open Table, we were asked if we were celebrating anything. We said that it was our anniversary.

It was not acknowledged by the restaurant at all.

The food was excellent. Our entire family loves fried rice and $4.50 additional to have fried rice is excessive! For the three of us we paid an additional $13.50! This should be included with the dinner that was priced high as well. Chef was excellent but cocktail server was not. Everyone at our table had to go to the bar several times to get their own drinks because they were tired of waiting. I mentioned that it was my son's birthday when I made the reservation and they brought him a piece of cheesecake and left it in front of him--no "happy birthday song"! :-(

Visit Kobe if you are ready for teppanyaki and feel like dining with new "friends" around a large iron cooking surface. Entre options are numerous and Kobe makes a special effort to prepare sides such as fried rice-- mild, spicy or with garlic, as you prefer. The proteins are beautifully presented before they are prepared before you. The sashimi menu, while limited, was very fresh for our visit---we were at Kobe's on a Sunday evening and the sashimi was terrific. Bar service is timely throughout the meal, and the carnival-like atmosphere is entertaining for children and adults alike. A very nice venue for a birthday or anniversary celebration.

We have been to many Kobe steak houses over the years. It is always entertaining. However, this time we were almost smoked out. 2 of our party had smoke blowing in their faces the whole time the grill was on. They hadn't been before and I'm not sure they would try again.

I was disappointed in the quality of food, especially with the amount of money they charge. It was the worst Japanese Steakhouse that I have ever eaten. The food was almost burnt and flavorless, even with all the soy sauce added to it. I don’t know what kind of shrimp sauce that was because it was watery and taste like wasabi. I have been to Japanese Steakhouses from FL to CA and I have never had shrimp or ginger sauce like that. Overall, it was a huge disappointment and I will never return.

Healthy dining requires a better approach to how they can make the food taste as good with less salt especially here in the Desert where so many seniors already suffer high blood pressure etc!
Otherwise great value! Good drinks too!
