Was disappointed that they did not offer the same happy hour as the International Drive location. everything else was fabulous! Seated quickly after arriving. Prompt, friendly, attentive server. The chef was friendly & entertaining. Very pleased while we were celebrating 4 birthdays. They made it enjoyable & entertaining!

Came for a friends pre-wedding celebration. Managed to make a reservation for 7, but they were able to accommodate one more. Our teppanyaki chef was phenomenal. He was skilled and very funny. He made the whole experience a blast. The food was also very well prepared.

All in all, a great time and experience.

Food was good. We have been coming to Kobe for years. It’s our children’s choice for their birthday and special occasions (graduation) every year. They used to serve the fried rice last which is my preference because I eat it, and I am too full for the main entree. Love their white sauce.

just want to warn everyone that Kobe's is so much different now than it was before covid.
When they ask you to order they will now say so you want small or large. I thought they were asking if I wanted a kids meal or regular. Actually it's 5 pieces of meat or 10 pieces of meat. I found out later. It was 38.00 for a combo of steak and shrimp. Then now they ask you if you want mushrooms and onions. I thought they meant with my meal like they always do mushrooms and onions with your meal But now they charge extra for all. So the 38.00 shrimp and steak dinner is now 7.00 on top of that if you say yes to onions and mushrooms. So now your steak and shrimp dinner is 45.00. There were 5 of us. A senior citizen, a minor and 3 adults. No alcoholic beverages were ordered - just soda and water. If you order teriyaki sauce you will be charged a dollar extra. Our bill came out to 250.00. Two of us ordered only one meat. Three people ordered two meats. I hope this helps. I just feel like it was not fair the way nothing is explained until I got the bill and I almost fainted. I feel better now that I've warned my fellow Kobe visitors. I usually go to Kobe's 3-4 time's a year. I will probably go half that now but at least I'll be smarter. Also one final thought. Kobe's is a special occasion place for most of us. After the show is over they quickly pressure you out. A lady came over and looked at us and gave us the thumb up. We said yes the food is great. Then a minute later she came with to go plates. We weren’t even finished. We stared at our plates and were asked if we want a to go when we had just gotten our food. Another family at our table had a birthday cake that they didn't get to serve. They just left. At least give us 20 minutes to eat our 250.00 meal! Thanks!

P.S. the good. The food was amazing and the chef was entertaining. The ladies who greet you were warm and accommodating. There are just too many changes that are not explained.

Everything was excellent! The service, the cook in front of us was funny and entertaining, and handled the tools of his trade with precision. He made the food very tasty. I had plenty and took home a good portion of food. With going especially when you get a $25 off an entree when you buy an entree at the regular price. Remember tip of 18% is already added to the bill.

We had a reservation for 7pm. I called to ask about happy hour specifically "dinner for 2". I was told that it started at 9pm. So I changed our reservation to 9pm. We arrived and started to order. It was then that we were told "dinner for 2" stopped about a month ago. 🙄 Terrible customer service. Why on earth would they stop this? It seems that each year Kobe's is getting more and more stingy. They even stopped giving a free birthday meal in your birthday month. Now, they're only giving $15 off a meal AND you have to purchase another meal. 🙄 You shouldn't have to be forced to have one ticket when going out with friends and family. We had a party of 10 and spent well over $300. Because we all had separate checks and I was on my own check, I wasn't able to use my birthday coupon of $15 off. As a loyal Kobe's customer of over 15 years, I'm absolutely disgusted!

We had a great time. We made sure our party was all at the restaurant before we checked in on a Wednesday night. We actually were seated a few minutes before our reservation time. They had moveable plexiglass dividers between our party and the couple that joined our table. Everything was done safely and still fun. Thanks so much.

The hostess tried to cram us into a space not fit for us. She is in a wheelchair. The place was so loud and out of control. The food portions of fried rice and noodles was excessive because Kobe thinks we don't know that the rice and noodles are cheapest part. The amount of sirloin and shrimp was paltry. Really Kobe needs alot of work to improve the client experience
