Birthday dinner. Food was great. Service is good. The room we were in was not well air conditioned so it was too warm. But overall, a good experience. The right room temp would have made it great.
Arrived later than planned but the evening was great! Not many people present but a couple soon joined us in the room. I hadn't been there since my daughter's high school graduation. She is now working on her PHD! The place hasn't messed a beat! My lady enjoyed things immensely! We had the Chef to ourselves! The food was tasty and plentiful! Wish I could there more often! Love the place!
Overall a good time. Except it was very warm inside. Many people were complaining.
The air conditioning was not working. It was so hot we didn't not finish our meal. Big fans set up that looked tacky and did not help cool anything off. I was disappointed. This used to be THE place to go in Nashville. The food was delicious, but the restaurant was too hot to enjoy
Good food. Very dated. Stale. Dirty. No air conditioning (not working well) cooks and servers sweating. Fans in isle way. Ceiling tiles black w old cooking smoke/grease.
Observed busing tub being placed on cooking surface.
26th Wedding Anniversary. Sat with a fun birthday group. Even got our meal paid for by guests honoring our day! Very cool.
I have been coming here for 20 years and it is almost always good to great. This time there were a few glaring problems that were hopefully only due to the Mother's Day rush and possibly a new cook. The wait was fine, the restaurant looks like it always does, and they are fairly friendly. The problem was all at the table. The chef looked WORN out, seriously bad for wear. And a bit lost. Not that he didn't know how or what to cook, but the order, the prep, the show. All of this seemed like he was brought in from another place. The worst part was that he was so out of it he handed jars of sauce and paste to each guest to scoop with their own utensils. That's a health code violation. He also let the rice sit forever in a vat of oil and while I think the fried rice there is the best thing ever, it was barely up to local Chinese food standards. So oily....Not even a hint of a show which frankly has become a throw away the last few years. All of this combined and considering I brought 5 guests, we were about to say something to the always friendly management when lo and behold, almost all of the meal (save the rice) came out fantastic. The scallops were the best I've tasted anywhere. The steak was perfect. All in all no where near the usual standards of such a good place, but the food was still great at a decent enough price. I will of course return because I like this place, but that was really unfortunate.
Delicious food, great service, entertaining teppan
Very good food, tired decor and VERY smoky atmosphere due to poor ventilation. Needs a renovation soon
The food was pretty average. Our chef didn't really put on a show. He flipped the shrimp a little but no knife skills and they all seemed pretty bored with the job. Not worth $30 a plate anymore. This place used to be bangin. It was kind of disappointing because I expected it to be an amazing first time experience for my son and he wasn't impressed. The staff was nice- just no energy and no typical teppenyaki performance.
The hibachi area that we were placed in was not as nice & updated as we thought it would be. The experience would have been better if we would be tried the traditional dining. The waitress wasn't as attentive, due to whatever. Overall, for the price you pay it could be better. The drinks were good and so was the food.
Waitress was absolutely horrible. We had never attended the establishment. After being seated we asked the waitress what she suggested for dinner, she then returned with a snide remark stating I would not recommend anything. The show was horrible during the preparation of the meal the overall experience was horrible seeing as how we brought a party of 10 consisting of five children they were extremely disappointed. The table was dirty and overall place felt run down and staff didn't seem to enjoy their job.
We were celebrating a birthday and we're all very excited. FrI'm start to finish this whole experience was extremely disappointing. The waitress was extremely rude and one of the worst I've ever experienced. We were trying to make the best of the situation but at the end our waitress disappeared for at least 30 minutes after she brought out boxes. We asked about midway up front what was going on and if they would come sing and they said she'd be at the table any minute. After wsiting a while longer there was no sign of her. We decided to get up and leave and get out check at the front. They were very sorry and even took care of our check. Though we appreciated this, there is no way we'll eat there again.
The menu was overpriced, the food was mediocre at best, and every surface had a layer of grease on it. Left there feeling gross and underwhelmed, especially for the price we paid. At least Our server was kept our drinks filled. Would not recommend this restaurant. There are many better options within walking distance.
Great night! Food was wonderful! The service was excellent! Such a nice staff!!! Love Kobe's!!!
