Welcome to Kobe An LoHi. In addition to a full sushi and izakaya menu, our signature dish of “shabu shabu” is a traditional Japanese-style hot-pot meal. The phrase “shabu, shabu” means “swish, swish” for the custom nature of cooking this dish. We're not your typical hot-pot or fondue restaurant. Our "Shabu Shabu" style transports you across time and cultures to immerse you in a deliciously fresh and evocative world. Enjoy the skills of our chefs and bar staff as they complement this gastronomy of the past with quality sushi, crafted cocktails and small plates with a modern twist. In our beautiful dining room , or under Japanese lanterns on our patio, come savor not only the food - come savor the swish and the sushi.

I am too particular about my sushi. This was a good restaurant and I felt like the sushi was average.

Food was great (highly recommend the Diablo roll, and the shabu shabu is very fun), but they really need to have more staff working the kitchens, bar, and tables. Took 45 minutes to get our first course and about another 35 after that to get the shabu shabu. Our waitress was nice, but it seemed like she had too many tables and was hardly around.

For the shabu shabu, the sukiyaki broth was very strong (very sweet and too salty at the same time). Our entire group wasn’t a huge fan of this broth. The miso is delicious though! Didn’t do the all you can eat, don’t need to (for a group of 4). One meat order per person is plenty and there are tons of veggies and noodles that come with it too (recommend the sirloin and shrimp). Will definitely be back for more shabu shabu and hope by then they will have fixed their staffing problems :)

Usually diners have the opportunity to add ingredients to their shabu broth at-will. We got one pot, with all the veggies already stuffed in the bowl. I had to ask for more broth because there wasn’t enough room to swish. I brought two people who’ve never been there thinking it was going to be a similar experience to my own before covid, food-wise. It was disappointing. I love to tell people this is my fave date spot in denver due to ambiance and food. I understand ambiance is lost in a greenhouse outside, but the food did not have to suffer. It was sloppy looking and sub-par.

Service was great.
Sushi was good.
The broth was very concentrated and made me question whether it was “on” or not.

Everything about Kobe An is fantastic! The outdoor seating was great: very warm, we didn't even need our jackets, and you're in those little huts that look like clear greenhouses so you are not close to other people. The sashimi was beautiful and fresh, the sushi rolls were perfect, and I would go back solely for the ramen slider appetizer, which I'm still thinking about 3 days later. If you go there, you need one of these. They season it perfectly and the ramen "bun" is the perfect complement to the kobe beef.

Kobe An is consistently great. The Shabu Shabu is fantastic, broth is spot on, veggies are fresh and plentiful and the meats are plentiful. The huts outside on the patio were very warm and welcoming. With these crazy times I'm always amazed how creative business have become and Kobe An is reacting wonderfully, we'll continue to come back again and again.

The little greens houses are such a good idea to keep the restaurant open and patrons happy. Make sure you go with folks you know are Covid free since you are in an enclosed space with them. Our server Liz was wonderful but all the staff was super friendly and welcoming. Only gripe would be the corner where chairs were thrown haphazardly on the tables. Little bit of an eye sore. Food is amazing and high quality (we got shabu shabu) and great value. You get a ton of food included!

Kobe An was a fantastic place to eat, even with these COVID times, they have set up the little huts to keep you and your party warm. We went while it was snowing and were perfectly comfortable. The service was fantastic, and the food was delicious. I highly suggest the Shabu Shabu - it was fantastic meal and also a fun activity. This was perfect for a date night or celebratory dinner, and for all the food that we ended up ordering, it was not as expensive as we thought it would be! Definitely will be going back this winter.

Our drinks came about 45 min after we sat down and after food had already arrived. Waitress apologized but it wasnt that busy so not sure what the deal was with that. Food was decent- although we didn’t get everything we ordered. The chef asked not to serve one of the sushi dishes we ordered because he wasn’t happy with the quality of the fish. I appreciated that but wouldve preferred to know that before ordering and waiting a long time.

Service was very slow- there was only 1 server, so I understand, but there was no type of apology or explanation as to what took so long. Food was good but a bit overpriced in my opinion

Everything was great, aside from the service. Drinks took a long time, and the appetizer came out with the food and my boyfriend ordered a beer that never came. I’ve been there several times before and had no problems. The server must have just been new. Overall, we had a great time!

The food was so good, it's unfortunate that the service makes me not want to return. One server in the entire restaurant and it took upwards of 20 minutes just to get drink orders, including a soda! Server forgot to bring us utensils and we couldn't get her attention for the majority of the meal so we just used our hands and whatever we could to eat! I think this tops the charts as the worst service I've had in many years at a resturant. We actually watched two couples come in, sit, and then walk out after waiting about 20 minutes and no one coming to even greet them.
