Kobe's is always delicious. It's a lot of fun to sit at teppanyaki style cooking. This location has beautiful Japanese decor at entry. The one major downfall to me is they squish you around a table, which is very uncomfortable. There is no reason unless you're in a large group together to place so many at a Grill. They put... More

It's been a while since my husband and I have been here but we went last week and it's better than ever. Rom was our chef and while he is funny and entertaining, he's not intrusive so you can still have a conversation with someone. We went for the early bird dinner that save some $$ and is an excellent... More

Here for the first time and had a very nice evening. Seated with 6 other people and made new friends. The meal and entertainment by the chef was very typical of this type restaurant but was still fun. Food was good. Prices fairly reasonable. Will definitely go back.

My husband & I haven't been here in a few years. Everything was delicious! I had the Teriyaki Chicken with steamed rice and vegetables & my husband had the Yellowtail Sashimi appetizer and the Steak & Shrimp combo for dinner, which also had the steamed rice and vegetables. For dessert, the green tea ice cream is awesome! It is very... More

We returned to Palm Springs/Rancho Mirage/Palm Desert after 16 years and much to our amazement Kobe Japanese Steak House was alive and well. Still great food and service, and wonderful fun atmosphere. A not miss when in the area!

Kobe's has been around for about thirty years or more on restaurant row in Rancho Mirage. There is a reason for that. Back in the day restaurant row included The Hunger Tiger which was put up because of Bob Prescott and Don Rossi who were Flying Tiger's in WW II. In that row was also Dominick's where Frank dined (since... More

Visited as a family of six, and joined one other guy to make up our party at the sizzling table. The food was of its usual high quality, service was excellent and the manager took a pragmatic approach to my question/problem. A helpful tip - particularly if you're not from the US – take your ID with you!

Want good fun food and a really good time. This is it. From the minuete you sit down with your own chef, I think they are comedians too, to the time you eat desert, if you don't enjoy yourself here, I don't know what to tell you. You can't be alive!!

The meal was well prepared and very good. I enjoy watching a chef cook at the table. The chef was humorous and had a great sense of humor. I enjoy the Teppan style of meal preparation. Additional food was ordered in error. The chef prepared the food and served it to us at no additional charge. Big Negative: The restaurant... More
