The staff was very kind and gave great service but the food was beyond disgusting!! We love hibachi and have visited many different chains, but this was by far the worst quality food! The filet was not like any filet I have ever had, tasted like hamburger meat and was extremely chewy. The shrimp tasted like they caught them in a river behind the restaurant, they were not deveined and turned white when cooked, very chewy and horrible taste. My husband said the lobster was the worst he had ever had as well. We literally left our plates full of food, paid, and left! The rice, soup, and salad were the only half way decent tasting things we had. Extremely disappointed in the food especially when spending $120 on dinner! We will NEVER return to a Kobe again!

Our chef was very quiet, didn’t make many jokes, didn’t make my teriyaki chicken like I had ordered so I got regular chicken which still tasted good but I was looking forward to teriyaki. I come here often and never have issues with my order, and always laugh a lot at the silly jokes from the chefs but this time was very different and I was bored!

The cook tried to cook the food too quickly. The rice was burnt and some of the noodles were over cooked.

The service was great! The food not so much. We love hibachi and up north it is done different so maybe that’s why we didn’t enjoy it as much. It was just ok not a lot of flavor.

If anyone has a food allergy prepare to feel embarrassed. The servers looked very annoyed with my food allergies and the people around you. Be mindful that you are seated with random people so if they don’t have proper manners your in for a treat. The service wasn’t welcoming or comfortable. I will not go back.

I totally love Kobe’s. But more this location. The staff is kind and friendly. My only knock would be the pricing. I took my 7 year old daughter for Valentine’s Day. I went financially prepared but mentally it’s hard to explain how she could be charged as an adult. But that’s just business side. The food is amazing and the environment energetic. My overall experience, I’ve never had any issues. The food amazing in itself but it’s just a product they sell. The service is what really has you coming back.

Yes it was Valentines Day - however we felt very rushed - in and out in one hour ???dinner was hot but just okay for the money. Once every couple of years is probably enough for us.

I would highly recommend the Kobe Japanese Steakhouse to those visiting the Kissimmee area. The service was excellent and the chef, Josh, not only prepared a delicious meal, but entertained us with his humor and knives and other utensils. The other 8 people around the table quickly became friends and we had a good time.

Server Connie did an excellent job keeping everything moving and picked up as the meal progressed. Never ran out of beverages and her timing on boxing up remaining food was great. Never had Tri for a cook before. Food was cooked just right with an excellent flavor. His showmanship wasn't as strong as some other cooks but his food made up for it.

Had a party of 5 for 2 Birthday's. Got our bill and was ok with the price, left a 30.00 cash tip but bank statements show where 20% of a tip was also added on my bill and taken from my account!!!! Not good service when you tip gouge your customers! I will not be back for that reason alone if you can't be trusted to only take the amount permitting and think you need over a 50 dollar tip!!

I've been to Kobe's three times now, all at this location, and have loved it every time. The waitresses are nice and very attentive. The amount, and value of food, that you get for the price is great. I would recommend downloading the app and signing up for the Rewards account!
