Exceptional experience. Highly recommend for special occasions ! It was a bit pricey but a very nice experience. Most people don’t spend $300 for a family of four (4) so this would be for the average family a once or twice a year venue

Always excellent , fresh food cooked to order. Our chef could've had a little more experience. He dropped quite a few utensils and the tricks did not always end up as expected. But overall, it was a fun night!

I understand that their business model is to shove 10 people uncomfortably at a table and I am chosing to no longer patronize Kobe. It was a Monday night, we were sat at a table with another couple and my family of 4. Server came, took our drinks and our orders. The soup course was served and finished and they decided to sit another 4 at our table. It was a very slow Monday night! Now this group wants to order appetizers and drinks and our dinner is on hold. The best part, one of them had a seafood allergy and now we all have to wait until her food is cooked! We were celebrating a special occasion and it was not pleasant. When we left, the place was still empty. No more!

The food was delicious, the atmosphere was pleasant. The only thing for me was the noise level. It was loud so talking to your guests was more of a low key shout. Otherwise, the experience was extremely pleasant.

I visited several Kobe steakhouses in Orlando area over the last 10 years. I always go back to Tony and his team in Kissimmee. They are so professional and we always have so much fun. His staff is so well trained. I always seem to get Connie as a server, she is excellent. Tony is always on the floor and make sure we get the best treatment. I love having my birthday celebration there.

Our family came to Kobe Japanese Steakhouse to celebrate a birthday. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating from the moment we arrived all the way through our visit with them. They even brought out the cake with the lit candles at the right time to surprise our birthday boy, as well as cut and served it. The service was spot on, and the food was so very good as always. Kobe is our Japanese Steakhouse of choice!!

Se le informó que estábamos de cumpleaños y nunca vinieron a cantarle

I was there to celebrate my son"s birthday and brought a cake. I made a reservation in advance for 8 then had to change it to 6, we were seated at our table and a few mins later there were 4 guests at our table making my son's birthday akward so we asked to be moved to another table we were told it would be extra for a private table which we didn't mind paying the extra money for him to have a good experience. I read birthdays were discounted at the end of the bill with proof of birthday, but that didn't happen. Lastly, I have a seafood allergy and didn't know they cook all the food in the same grill so I was not able to eat my meal. The only positive was both the Chef and server were very nice. Unfortunately, the mood throughout dinner was uncomfortable, everyone left confused and disappointed. The positive was the restaurant had a beautiful pond with huge fish, they were very polite, and the food was good. But I don't think I will be returning
