I go here every year for my birthday. I didn’t have any issues. The good is always good. “Kent” took good care of us and clearly communicated. “Ha Ha Ha” was hilarious.

We made reservations for 9pm, we had a party of 6. They crammed another party of 6 with us at one table and divided the usual amount of food between more people. We told the hostess we felt crammed and she said we’d have to wait anywhere from 30-45 mins for another chef to become available. This was so disappointing considering we have to wear a mask & distance, but instead they’re cramming as many as they can at one table. We usually eat at Kobe’s 3-4 times a month but I don’t think that’s happening anymore

The food (chicken & steak, rice, noodles, soup, salad) was all made to perfection! Most is cooked right before our eyes by a talented chef who also has his brand of schtick...For COVID concerns, clear barriers were placed between each party...we could still speak to one another, but without worries. For our anniversary, we were serenaded, given hats & cupcakes...nice touch!

We came to celebrate my son's 18th birthday. First they forgot to give us forks and we had to wait till they came to start cooking for them to bring them to us. Then the plate they gave my son was dirty but the cook noticed right away and gave him a clean one. The rice was hard. The food was salty. The cook barely spoke to anyone at the table. We have enjoyed ourselves every other time we have dined there. This time it was not very entertaining at all. We were very disappointed in our experience this time especially since we were trying to celebrate a special occasion.

I noticed employees wearing gloves that were torn. That defeats the purpose for safety. Also, the number of guests seated at one table should not exceed 6 to ensure acceptable social distancing. I will not be returning for indoor dining as long as the virus threat is evident.
