    All good except they were running behind 30 min late on reservation

    Kobe Japanese Steakhouse - St. PetersburgResponded 5 days agoThank 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.

    Chef Fluffy did a great job however we did not leave a tip because the restaurant has implemented a mandatory 18% service fee in the bill and didn’t inform us until after we finished dining. I do not believe this fee is legal in the state of FL however I will be asking an attorney before returning.

    Worst experience I’ve had at Kobe. The waiter was inattentive and didn’t bother coming back to refill our tables drink. The chef dropped his utensils and almost knocked my cup over. The food was over cooked/dry for Kobe standards. The family next to us didn’t get the white rice they ordered, and had to ask three times before receiving it. We came here for my birthday and they didn’t do their typical birthday celebration. When we were in the process of paying, the waiter finally asked “do you want a cupcake?” to which we declined because we were already on our way out. Our entire table was shocked and disappointed with the service.

    Advised I was celebrating my son's 15th birthday, and no one came out with birthday song or cupcake. We sat down for meal service at 7:50pm, our salad wasn't served until 9:00pm. Our chef was slow, seems he was new, so we understand. But we didn't get our dinner serviced until about 9:30pm in which everything was cold because it took the chef a long time to cook the proteins. To add, I paid for extra noodles and he gave them to the wrong side of guests. Our meal portion was small compared to others because he services our side last while everyone had large portion. This was a huge dissapointment.

    Each entree or teppanyaki dish is for “one person” but the amount of food is more than enough to split with another person! Delicious and will definitely be back.

    We made a reservation for 8 people for 7:30. Checked in at 7:20. We were not seated until 7:50 even though there were several empty tables. It was clear the host was waiting for two more people to complete a table of 10. We had two little ones in our party so waiting was not ideal. After complaining several times we were finally seated but essentially sat there for a long time waiting on drinks as they stalled for more time to find two more people. Finally they gave up on filling the two seats and started serving us around 8:15. Food and chef were good. Just annoyed that people walking in without a reservation were seated before us.

    First, we had to wait even though we had a reservation. While we were waiting someone’s kids back-and-forth in the lobby, but no parental supervision or nobody from the restaurant said anything to the people’s children or the adults. It was loud and a tad bit aggravating that nobody from your restaurant told the parents to keep the children in line. It was me and my twin sister‘s birthday and all sweet of us wanna go out and have a nice time then we finally got sad it took forever for the shift to get to the table and then we had told the waiter. Our orders we had two special orders at the table, the waiter repeated it back. The chef repeated it back, and the chef made it wrong twice then tells us after we are all done eating that my friends food is still in the back kitchen being prepared for almost an hour later, it was ridiculous to have to wait in manager, no sense of urgency at all from him very laid-back and very did not care. I had a birthday rewards which the server did not take off after I had explain to him and I can plug in my reward number not to mention it he came back and said he was coming our two friends dinners, and he only comped one terrible. Their food came out, cold and bland.

    Went to Kobe’s last night for New Year’s Eve which also happens to be my birthday. We made a reservation and also requested Fulffy the chef. He was absolutely amazing! Very engaging and made everyone laugh. The food was wonderful as well as the service. They stayed on top of refills and making sure everything was cleared that we were finished with. Overall is was a great experience and will definitely be back!

    Food not divided equally and I didn’t get enough. I ordered filet and shrimp and got very little filet. Grill was too hot and burnt on the outside. Overall I was very disappointed.
