Kobe Japanese Steakhouse - Kirkman
The food was oily. The chef was very entertaining. I bought 3 drinks and all were weak, the drinks tasted like the kid’s smoothie my kids ordered.
We celebrated my daughter's birthday. The servers and chef were great. Unfortunately, the exhaust vent at our table was inoperable, so many people at our table coughed continuously. Even the chef got choked up. Otherwise, we really enjoyed it.
Made reservations for 12. When we arrived they had jammed 12 chairs at a table for 8 or 9. We then had to ask them to move toward back placing 4 in our party at one table and the remaining party of 8 at another. No apology, no discount, no nothing! Won’t be back to that location! 😡
The atmosphere was exceptional, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The whole restaurant was very clean. I needed my food to be gluten-free and they went out of their way to make sure I did not eat any gluten. They had a really good quality gluten-free soy sauce And the cook made all my food - each course separate before he did the others he put the gluten free soy sauce on it, Served me and then continued to make the rest of the course for the others. He did not get annoyed as many restaurants do. The only thing you can’t have is the dressing on the salad and the miso soup if you are gluten-free everything else you can have. I would definitely recommend Kobe to other people.
Excellent customer service and food
We were staying at a hotel nearby, and decided to try this Kobe. So glad we did! I had the sirloin and shrimp and both were delicious. The sirloin was very tender. The service was great. Both the chef and server were very friendly. Highly recommend!
I was going for the dinner for 2 and wanted to upg my steak. The waitress told me i was better off doing kobes trio bc that would allow me to upg to filet mignon. So we did. But since the rice wasnt enough for us, we ordered rice on the side. $5 extra. At the end she charged us 2 kobe trios. Which didnt benefit at all for us. Bc we were going for the dinner for 2. If she would've told me kobe trio each. I would've chose not to upgrade my steak. I went back and basically the manager told me he couldn't do anything about it. So being that I'm a regular and they didn't help me or were familiar with the menu i ended up paying $45 dollars instead of $5. I was anticipating to pay about $90. And our bill was about $150.
This is our second time coming here for dinner- March 7 2019. Our chef this time was not as good as last time, he was younger and a bit sloppy but the quality of the food and overall service was still EXCELLENT. Will be back for sure! The steak and shrimp quality of meat is excellent
The food is really good and the servers are nice. It's the best Japanese place i ever went to
it was ok. not good but also not bad. steak overcooked. the chef did his best entertaining us. waiter had an attitude.
Amazing as usual. Houston was exceptional and the food delicious.
Hi, our server was FANTASTIC! I don’t remember his name but he was a young African American guy. Super friendly. Our chef on the other hand forgot to cook a chicken and steak for 2 people in our party. We had 10 people all together in our party. this has been continuous, happening the past 2-3 times we’ve came to this location. I think we’re going to try another location now instead.
Took us over 30 min to get seated, another 20+ minutes to have a server make initial contact with our table, and much too long for our meal to commence. The actual server and hibachi chef were great, but the restaurant operations were poor. I requested a high chair in advance, and that wasn't made available and I was made to feel like an a high-needs customer when I asked for it. In addition, we were dining with a potty training toddler who needed to get to the bathroom multiple times, and again I was made to feel like a complete nuisance when I was firm about sitting at a position at the table that would make getting the bathroom less troublesome for the other table customers (not with our party). This was a very, very, very poor and unpolished experience for what should be a family-friendly restaurant at a rather premium price.
Always a good time
good food but our chef was quiet and not entertaining as the other ones in the room
We had a great time! Thanks for making my day special.
Ambience was ok food mediocre came to this restaurant with family will not be returning
We had dinner at Kobe last Friday night. Kobe was packed with a line out the door when we left the restaurant at 7:30. Luckily we had an early reservation and we sat down before it was completely full. We enjoyed the Japanese Steak house and the food was good. They only serve 1 dipping sauce ( White Sauce ) and would of enjoyed my meal with 2 or more sauces otherwise everything went well. It is not a cheap meal but for $25-$35 you will be full with probably leftovers.
Amazing as always. We eat here every time we are in Orlando. They never disappoint!
This is the first time I eat at Kobe’s that the chef did a really bad job! He didn’t do anything on the show, he had to ask for 4 steaks because he forgot it, the rice was overdue you could feel that it was burn. The noodles were overdue too. The steak for the people that requested medium well was not cooked well. At the end he dropped something and he said now 30 more minutes because I get paid by the hour.
The name of the chef is Gogo.
I love Kobe’s and have been going there for 13 years.
Great food , awesome cook,Great food , awesome cook,Great food , awesome cook,
Eddie was so awesome and funny! We had a great time and great food!
By Far One of My Favorite Places to Eat..We Always have a Great Time..Me and My Family Enjoyed My Bday Dinner(2-19-19@5pm)It was Good Conversation,Great Food,And Always A Great Time🎂🎉🎊
Eddie is the best Chef! He takes his time and entertains! It’s not about speed. He interacts graciously with his guests and makes each one feel important. I will be requesting him in the future instead of taking the risk of the quick and efficient chef.
It was for a few family members birthday. There was 18 of us. We were put in a nice room and the chefs are always great!
I would recommend for a special occasion or if you’re going out wIth a group. It’s a lot of fun.
We found our waitress difficult to understand when she spoke. While her name tag denoted her name as “Happy”, She was extremely pushy, bossy, borderline rude. Her service was not the best.
Meanwhile, The grill table chef, was nice and entertaining.
I go to this Kobe's all the time and this time in particular was very horrible. The server acted like she didn't want to be there, we sat down at 9:05 p.m. and the shift didn't come out until after 10 which is ridiculous. The chef was not as entertaining as the rest of the chefs that was there that night.
I loved my entire experience, I have no complaints. However as someone who isn’t a huge fan of onions I wish the food was less onion heavy.
I love dining at Kobe’s but my experience on February 15th for my mom’s birthday dinner was horrible!!! The chef wasn’t entertaining at all, he was very sloppy with our food and sauces. Literally there was sauce everywhere and food. The noodles fell in our glasses of water, we got no apology and no offer to get new drinks. He left our food on the grill for way too long and had to recook our rice 3 times!!! Followed by very small portions of food. One of our guests were very disappointed and left the table. I went to complain to the general manager and he had an excuse for every compliant and then told me that he didn’t believe his chef made the mess that was all over the table. After arguing with the manager he spoke to the chef and the chef admitted that it was all his fault. Why would I lie in the first place? The manager gave us 20% off which was nice but their service is horrible I will never visit at that location ever again.
It was our valentines dinner. Our service was great. Host was amazing and everything was delicious.
This is definitely the best Kobes in Florida. Super professional and servers are very attentive. Chefs are happy to work and never seem bored with the same jokes
The Restaurant was dirty, noisy, with mediocre food. You could find better in Orlando.
Family get together
It was a very good meal. We had a reservation and did not have to wait.
The food was like always. But service was terrible!!
I been there 3 time and I still be amazed. They food is fantastic and delicious. I love it so much
