It was fun if you never had hibachi before. Service was so so, nothing special to mention. Food seemed a lot, noodles and rice, but not the main dish. Chicken and filet mignon were both overcooked (never had children that tough before); also no taste, only salty soy sauce. The add-on gratuity was tacky and they still expected you to give more. If service was not good, how could they expect good "tips"?? Will definitely not return to this place. Like some reviewers said, the place "stinks".

WE did not sit at a cooking table. WE sat out front at a single table. The steak was over cooked. I asked for med and was served well done. I did not send it back because we did not want to wait for them to recook the meal.

Awful service and we won’t be returning. Upon arrival we had to wait another 25 minutes before being seated, even though we made a reservation. We were seated at an 8 person table but with 10 people (we had 4 in our party). We were crammed together with no room to eat or move. Drinks were never refilled and as soon as the chef finished cooking boxes were brought out with our checks, no time to actually eat the food or relax. It felt rushed, crowded and not a pleasant experience for the price you pay for hibachi. Just seemed like they wanted you in and out as fast as possible. The quality of the food wasn’t bad but every person working there looks miserable and the whole experience felt very disjointed. The restaurant overall wasn’t the cleanest and the bathrooms were gross.

Unfortunately this is one of few times I’ve went to KOBE and did not enjoy the service nor the food. According to the waiter they were short staff due to the holiday. However the hibachi chef wasn’t great either. The fried rice taste burnt and the shrimp were salty. Guess they weren’t prepared for the holiday rush

Only issue I had was the server(young Caucasian girl) assuming that the 2 ladies next to me and my good girlfriend (African American) were together since we are the same race.... we did not interact with them one bit for her to assume we was a party of 4

Food was ok, a little overcooked for our liking, but overall it was ok. One thing to note, even though we had a reservation, they do forst come first serve. The wait wasnt terrible, but not what was expected when having a reservation.

Just okay - food was not great and they included gratuity even for a party of 2 so service was not outstanding.

Kobe has great food. It is not the ideal place to go if you want to talk. It is very loud and energetic. Make sure to go in a larger group in order to fill the table and sit where you want.

We made the reservation only because it was on trip advisor. When we got there they said they do not participate in Open Table so we received no points for our dinner. Seems like a scam

We were 11 people. It was great. It was the first time for 3 of them. They enjoyed the hibachi grill experience. Everyone enjoyed themselves. The waitress was on top of getting the orders right and supplying drinks.

Great, gathering place to share with friends family and complete strangers. I've been here for years and hadn't had a chance to visit. The food was flavorful and our entrees came with noodles which is not the norm...drawback that yoy have to pay $2 for fried rice but it was very tasty! We will be back.

Didn't like the setting. Wanted a private table but we had to sit round a table of 10 with the smoke coming on our dress and hair. The server was not really clear in expressing herself causing us to get confused a couple of time

Our chief was great! We enjoyed the food, too! The part I think they can do better is the seating arrangement. I made reservation at 7 pm but I was told that they do first come first serve after we arrived at the restaurant. So, 9 of us must wait 20 minutes to be seated. I think if they go with first come first serve, they should not accept reservation at all. That way we can plan accordingly. Also, after our cook left, we feel like we were rushed to finish our dinner. I wish our server would allow us take time to finish. But it seems that they did the same thing for other table, not just for us. I hope our next dinner experience will improve.

Made reservation for 3 of us for a father's day dinner. Arrive with few minutes to spare but was told there are 5 tables ahead of us. Asked them how long wait and was told 40 minutes. When I told them the point of reservation is so we have a table available close to our time I was told that it doesn't work that way. Just shook my head and turned around. No point of arguing with this type of a logic.
