                We got the dynamite sushi and the bang bang shrimp and it had no flavor to it at all. Very bland. The waiter never came back to see how our food was and was very slow.

                We were rudely greeted. And then when we were seated we waited for a long period of time before we were even brought water. We had to walk out. It was a very poor experience

                The first time I came to this restaurant, the environment was very good, with a good band accompaniment, suitable for drinking and dancing with friends and family on the festival. I will come back again and will introduce friends over.

                My special guest wanted hibachi for dinner, so I suggested Kobe to him. It was him, my boyfriend and I who went out for dinner. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were directed over to the hibachi table. About two minutes later, we were informed by an Asian man that the hibachi chef decided not to show up that evening, so it was closed. My guest was visibly perturbed, and we were told by the hostess/waitress that we could still get hibachi items from the menu. Overall, the hostess/waitress was a little bit of a dingbat, and she seemed overwhelmed, despite the lack of other customers at the restaurant. There were only two other tables full in the huge dining area. Our appetizers and entrées came out at the same time, and we all had hot tea to drink, which we never received refills for, because whomever made the tea, didn’t make enough. Also, we asked for honey, and the hostess/waitress brought over a small jug of honey to the table, instead of bringing it in a dispenser or something else. The food was decent, despite the overwhelming pile of sautéed onions with each entrée. At the end of the meal, the hostess/waitress asked us if we needed boxes to take our “leftovers” home, which there were none; just three piles of uneaten cold sautéed onions. Lastly, we were rushed out, because the staff was pushing all the tables out of the way to make room for the make bit dance floor, since they host a late-night dance club. Needless to say, we won’t return.

                Awful. Poor excuse for Asian food. Bland, small portions, and wayyyy overpriced. Won't go back......so totally not worth it.

                This is a great place for the perfect date night. The ambiance is beautiful we sat at a table with a wonderful view of the river and the downtown Toledo skyline. The food was amazing from appetizer to dessert. I recommend the cast iron hibachi chicken, spicy salmon roll, and raspberry cheesecake. The salmon roll was absolutely delicious and the cheesecake was so light and creamy. To top it off our server was awesome. He made sure we had a perfect evening. I can’t wait to come back again and I am really looking forward to enjoying dinner and drinks on that beautiful patio on a nice summer night. This restaurant is definitely a local gem.

                I Only got one straw for both drinks. Only had one set of silverware till we had to ask for another one. Waitress said she was leaving then rushed us on the check. Then after she left nobody came to ask if we needed boxes or anything. But we asked and then received some. On the bright side of things my food was good and the view outside is beautiful.

                If you want an experience GO to Kobe Bay! We made a reservation for 7:45pm The wait was extremely long, wait staff unorganized. We ordered an appetizer, drinks and our meal. We got drinks, appetizer and 1 of 2 meals. The first order was cold on arrival AND we did not get silverware to eat. Went to ask for silverware and they said it’s over there. Then it wasn’t where they said it would be. The second order of food did not come out until 45 minutes later. We were cashing out at 9:20. We could have gone to the grocery store and made our own food in that time. We were offered 10% off of our bill. But everyone in our area made the experience pleasant with jokes. A table had silverware but no food and offered to trade silverware for food. This place is completely mismanaged. The egg rolls were good.

The restaurant is next to the river so the view is great! One thing to suggest for improvement is getting more servers so can cut the waiting time for table serving. Will come back for sure!

The food is so good that we ended up eating a lot. We also love the location where it's river front and has a quiet and relaxing river side walk. Highly recommend!

                Just finished the dinner at Kobe Bay. It was a wonderful experience! The Host and the waitress Emma are extremely nice and helpful. The dishes are delicious! Here are some of my orders that I would highly recommend to everyone! They are Bang Bang shrimp, Georgia Pulled Pork, St. Louis Style Ribs and Smoked BBQ pulled pork Nachos. I will certainly come again and again! Steve

                The food here is amazing. Got it to go and everything was still perfect by Maumee River. Great brisket, smoked chicken was some of the best I’ve ever had, definitely recommend the Mac and cheese as well. One of the best meals I’ve had in a while.

                Is not sushi anymore. Is bbq. Place lacks management, if there are any at all they shouldn't be higher then a dish washer. Was a unorganized free for all, basically no one knew what to do and were kids running around upstairs.but a couple employees tried to make it right. In the end the bbq was good.

                Kobe Bay has a cool vibe with a view of downtown Toledo and the Maumee River. The service was good, but the food was only “okay.”

                The first time I ever been there the food was amazing(back in 2019). They had hibachi and the portion sizes were great for the value. This time around was my second time going. Thinking it will be the same as last time. I saw no hibachi tables (I assumed maybe because of covid they weren’t doing it so it was understanding) when it came to ordering our food, I picked the steak hibachi from the menu but you couldn’t choose how you wanted your steak cooked (only medium but I promise you mine was well done.) The portion sizes were awful for $22. The steak was well done and not medium, the miso soup was so watered down, the fried rice was dry and tasted like frozen fried rice and everyone’s meal was not even warm. At the end, the waiter messed up a few checks (I normally don’t get mad if they do, we all make mistakes, some people were just missing a few items.) If you have 8 or more people, they added gratuity which is understandable and it was 18%. But the checks that were messed up he added a 30%. So we asked if they could redo them because he did that. I wouldn’t recommend going here again. I normally don’t write long reviews. Our reservation was for 7 and we didn’t leave there till 9:15. The service was slow, the food wasn’t good and the atmosphere was bland. I heard they are under new management as well. If you are going to be a restaurant that says they have hibachi, at least let customers know that it’s from the kitchen, not the whole hibachi table atmosphere.

                We enjoyed our meals. The food is good. We had the seafood boil. The only negative side is that our crab legs were so small they were virtually not edible. That was disappointing. The sushi was good. We had the shrimp tempura and veggies appetizer. While it was tasty, the grease factor was higher than what we could handle. The service and atmosphere was awesome. However, the music was a bit loud so we were pleased with our table location far from the music so we were able to enjoy each other's company. We plan to return.

                Quite pleasantly surprised. What stood out were the riverfront view across downtown Toledo and the vibrant expansive dining area. Ample room in between tables and the lofty two story ceiling did help ease the conversation. The service was prompt and the food was delicious. Will definitely visit again.
