    We've always loved Kobe's. It was my birthday. I brought my family. My grandchildren have never been there and they loved it. My 4 year old grandson loved the fire the most.

    Only thing I can offer is that if you make a reservation on a busy night, you still may wait a little bit to get a table... still worth it.

    Chef Hoshi Was the best hibachi chef I’ve ever had in my life everyone of my party agreed. If you ever go make sure you get him. He was hysterical and entertaining. We had a great time the food was amazing.

    Kobe service has gone downhill over the years. Last time I ordered the chicken/shrimp combo, he gave my chicken away and only gave me a very few tiny pieces! this time i ordered extra rice and it went all the way around the table except to my plate! when i mentioned it, OH sorry, is all I got. The experience was SO much better during Covid when they had limited seating at each table so we were smooshed up like sardines!

    Only concern with the restaurant is the noise level and table setup. It is extremely difficult to hear the servers, and strangers at the same table is not sociable. Other than that, the food and table entertainment are good, and price is on the higher side, but not excessive.

    While Kobe’s does have good food, I feel as if they rush you out the door as soon as the chef leaves. If you are enjoying a drink and taking your time eating with your friends, you aren’t able to do this once the cooking has ended. You’ll need to down everything before that point!

    Really enjoyed our meal at Kobe Japanese Steakhouse. Each one of the cooks are excellent. He is constantly keeping all the people involved and entertained. He did lots of tricks with the knives and the food. He kept everyone’s food separate. After the mushroom broth soup and the orange dressing salad, everyone started with the fried rice and the yum yum sauce. He constantly refilled the yum yum sauce container throughout the dinner. After the rice was the noodles. The soy sauce, garlic and butter made the noodles delicious. Then came the veggies. They were so fresh and big. He even had to cut the carrots. The meat, potatoes, scallops, shrimp, chicken or whatever you ordered was the best and was cooked perfectly. If you have a birthday, they play the drum and sing Happy Birthday I. English then Japanese. They give you a cupcake that is moist and topped with delicious icing a candle to blow out, a hat and lots of memories.

    Always a great dining experience at this KOBE. The place was absolutely mobbed for New Years Eve, but the service was phenomenal. We had reservations for 6:00 and we were called to our table at exactly 6:00. Amazing considering how busy they were. Our Chef was top rate and made my daughters birthday extra memorable. Seriously, absolutely top notch.

I know each their own special something but perhaps a standard might not be a bad idea. Other than that we love the place and will keep coming back. Great food and nice service staff.
