Chef was fabulous. Waitress was ok. She wondered off a lot and forgot to refill drinks and bring our appetizer until the chef was done cooking.

Great place for a group of 12. Went for birthday, was a little surprised by the “birthday desert” which was just a basic cupcake and a little chocolate drizzle - kind of a let down given the rest of the meals high quality.

Kobe was a great experience, although I'd have to say there are a couple caveats. Expect a loud, energetic environment (some people may not like that), expect all the food to taste good (but all somewhat similar, as they use one sauce for most things), and expect to sit with other people if you're going for seat-side cooking

Love Kobe, we have been celebrating birthdays since I was a kid and now I celebrate my kiddos birthdays here, but after over 20 years it seems things have changed, the white sauce that EVERYONE knows and loves for some reason has changed, the chef said now it has ginger in it instead of offering the 2 separately, why on earth would you change one of the best things that separates Kobe from other restaurants???? All other restaurants attempted to copy their sauce and fail but, makes no sense. Also the chef's have always had certain things they did during their performance to connect with the audience, the onion ring fire, the shrimp wave, then flip them into their hats, the play on the egg before they smash it. Well guess what either we got a chef that just didn't want to do that or they do not do it anymore which is a shame because that is how you connect with your audience and those little things and the sauce is what separates you from other restaurants and it's gone and so is most of the uniqueness and fun, I'm sorry to say but after this is appears we will be looking for a different restaurant to celebrate at moving forward and our family's long tradition will now come to an end, it was a sad day for myself and the whole family that attended my daughter's birthday dinner last night. RIP Kobe, it was fun.

The salad and salad dressing was made a little different and it wasn’t as good as it used to be. The fried rice had less ingredients than usual so it was kind of bland. Also, the area around the cooking surface needed cleaning.

The check-in process was slow. Had 7 pm reservation and checked in at 6:55 pm. Did not get sited until 7:35 pm. Explanation given was waiting on chef to show up. Set the tone for a party of 8.

Thank you for your feedback. Due to our unique communal seating arrangement at the Teppanyaki table, our reservations are based on Priority Seating, which will offer you the shortest available wait time when you check in and your party is complete. Our goal is to seat priority seating within a 15 minutes window but sometimes many celebrations stay longer than expected and cause a delay for your party. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience you may have experienced.

why have a reservation when we had to wait over 40 min to be seated. The host Ana was so rude and getting seated was so unorganized. The food was good but even once we were seated it took 30 minutes to get our food. The lady who took our order was sweet and made it super important to try to get us served. They even try to be cheap in the end and gives us no to go bags or whitesauce. Stingy

First time at the Longwood location; my family and usually visit the Altamonte Springs location. The food was great; the service was not the best. The waitress had an issue with charging my friend card; which thru but she charged my card for her purchase and mine. My first is currently disputing charge with her bank. The cook wasn’t that entertaining; which we are use too.

Went for my birthday with family. Started off nice then service slacked a bit. Chef was okay...chef we had prior was AWESOME. It seemed much longer to wait for service staff & chef to get started. Usually, for birthdays they come over & sing with cake. But we waited over 45 minutes after our meal & no one came so we got up & left. They knew we were celebrating and restaurant wasn't busy at all. Good food but experience wasn't that great this time
