Wow this place used to be great; what the hell happened?? Mediocre at best, horrible burnt food. Rushed service to open to the table for another 8 suckers. Sub par service.
Honestly. Save the money and go to Kyoto for better food at a fraction of the price. VERY disappointing!!

My recent visits to Kobe have ranged from mediocre to horrible. I decided to give them one more change for my kids' sake. I'm glad I did. I have to say - they knocked it out of the park. Our chef was amazing, the food was honestly fantastic and the entire experience was everything you would hope it would be. BRAVO!

some might find it pricey but for what you get I think it’s a bargain. I have never been a fan of sitting with strangers but now with the glass partitions( thanks to covid) it feels a little more intimate. And for celebrations there’s no place better .

It was very rushed, I was still eating my soup and salad before my plate was bombarded with food, so much that the noodles he served them off my plate and onto the table, I had to scoop them up myself and put them in my plate! Totally disgusting, I couldn’t eat my food after that! No apology for that from him either! No tricks, everything was dumped on the grill and cooked all together and done! I never even got a refill on my water! I ordered a sangria which was good and wanted another and that never happened! The tables before and after us got the full show, we did not! I didn’t even have a chance to eat my food since it was all mixed up on top of each other so I had to eat it at home and threw the rest in the trash! I paid over 100 dollars and that’s with a Birthday coupon you would think the service would have been better! I celebrate my Birthday and my sons every year there! This looks like it will be the last! It’s all about making their money and that’s it! It was an in and out experience! Totally terrible! I will not be back, I have never had an experience like that there! But I guess there will always be a first time for everything! They will not get my money ever again! I hear the one in Longwood is way better anyway so maybe that’s where I will celebrate from now on! We stayed to talk for a while since it was so rushed and even that was uncomfortable! Kobe you need to do better, expensive dinners are not experienced this way!

I absolutely love Kobe. If you've been before, this location is similar to what you're used to. Make a reservation, arrive early and grab a drink at the bar, and have a fun, energetic, and delicious dinner. As usual, there was a ton of leftover food to bring home and eat the next day.

Very good food but the cocktails were lacking in the alcohol department, especially for the price. The Teppanyaki comes with both fried rice and noodles which most places don’t do, very much worth the price compared to other “hibachi” restaurants. Sushi was also good.
