 (Palm Springs)·Dined 3 days ago

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.

After all these years, we finally decided to try KOBE. It was not at all what we expected. The overall meals were over priced for what you got. And NO KOBE beef!!!

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.

Made our 25th wedding anniversary very special. Amazing ambiance enhanced by waitresses in Japanese attire. Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection. Most tender beef I've ever eaten!

Service and food was really great. We were a party of 4, they sat us in an odd place next to a party of 1 when there was enough space to sit together. Other than that, great experience.

The reservation was not ready for us when we arrived and we were required to wait for 1/2 hour for our table. And they were completely unapologetic. Once we were finally seated, everything was great.

Too much salt!!

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!
Servers great!

I absolutely love this restaurant. I have been going to Kobe's Steak House since 1992. Food is outstanding ... And the service is great too! Even though I moved from the Coachella Valley , I still continue to make the drive from Riverside at least twice a year for my anniversary and birthday .!

Kone’s Is as good as it was 30 years ago. And that is saying something. Took our daughter there for her birthday. We were seated at exactly the time of our reservation. The chef was very entertaining. The food was exceptional! Especially the shrimp and prawns. Just had a wonderful evening. Won’t wait so long to go back!

If you like the Teppan dining experience, this one is an excellent choice. The only challenge is that it can be too loud for any decent conversation during dinner. JFood was delicious as always and very, very plentiful. This time we were seated early which was a lucky break since we tried unsuccessfully to get an earlier reservation.

Disappointing! Kobe beef - not even close. I assumed from their name that they served Kobe beef. I asked the person when we were seated if this was prime or choice beef. He said choice. The next thing that was disappointing was the bennehanna style restarant. The names indicates a quality style steak house - - - far from it. My wife said when we returned to our hotel room that it was like false advertising.

Would not recommend this eating establishment for any other than kids entertainment.

Our Chef Miguel was so much fun! He was very energetic and the food was very yummy. Desiree and Tomo at the bar was very pleasant and offered great service experience. We were spending a few days in Indian Wells and the drive to Kobe Restaurant was worthy. They have a super cute Japanese garden and water front with beautiful fishes. What a gem! Next time we go to Palm Springs area, we a definitely stopping by again! Highly recommend checking this place out!
