Excellent meal!!
I always upgrade my steak...it is worth the extra 5 bucks. I have never had a bad meal at Kobe.
Make sure you always have a reservation or you can be in for a wait.

Service was great and food tasted good. However I feel like it was very costly for the portions.

Overpriced for what you get. No need for rice AND noodles AND potatoes. No where near as good as other hibachi restaurants we have been to.

Have been to all the Kobe's in Central Florida and this is by far the BEST one. Our Chef (Chris) and our server (Shiquig) were GREAT. Food was really good, Chris put on a good show while preparing our food. Shiquig was very attentive throughout our meal and both made the evening a lot of fun.

It was very cold! My kids were freezing.
We had a party of 8 and we had to empty chairs so we had to wait for a couple to be seated next to us. They were very loud.
Wasn’t happy about us waiting.

Everytime we are in Orlando we try to eat at Kobe. We have similar type restaurants in Palm Beach county, but I love the addition of the noodles you get at Kobe. It is pricier than the other hibachi restaurants to keep that in mind, only downfall.

Food and overall experience was very good. Our table (party of 12) was cramped in the space provided, though. Had it not been for this, I would have rated the entire experience as excellent.

The guy seemed new to Kobe’s, he wasn’t talkative, interactive or fun with the group of people at the table. The food seemed rushed to be cooked and very under seasoned. The vegetables were all hard, the rice, noodles, steak was bland. Even the kids noticed a difference and did not eat which usually they all clean their plates. Every other Kobe’s experience has been great except this one.

We were on time for our reservation, but we had to wait 15-20 minutes to be seated at our table. Our chef was very entertaining and funny! Our food was very good, but it was reported the chicken was dry. All in all, is was a wonderful experience!

Was celebrating a birthday. Arrived for a 9:00 reservation and it was almost 9:45 before we were seated. Other than the wait everything was good. It is one thing if you are a walk in, you expect to wait but with reservations you expect to be seated within 10-15 minutes not 45 minutes

The cook seemed bored and the food didn't taste the same as the other kobi's. Are you using a different soy sauce. The rice and veggies were also different in taste.

The greeters/hostess were not pleasant and the wait was almost an hour even after making a reservation. Employees lacked customer service skills while the chef totally missed the concept of providing a food experience with no enthusiasm or engagement. Overpriced and felt rushed by the staff. Won’t be doing this again and will let others know to save their money and time.
