This is not a place to go if you're on a budget. This is a place to go if you'd like an entertaining experience. The outside is as pictured, picturesque once one leaves the parking lot and approaches the restaurant, with a feel of Japan....More

My wife and I ate there tonight. Glad we made a booking as it was really busy - couldn’t see a spare seat anywhere. It’s a different kind of meal. The chef is a performer who entertains all around him. The food is high quality...More

I was a frequent diner of Kobe’s years ago; decided to bring the family back for a dinner and chef experience. The chef was not a chef- it was so disappointing to watch as he pounded the life out of the lobster and shrimp. Chopped...More

We visited this restaurant for my husband's birthday. We were able to make same day reservations as we went during the week. It is a Teppan style Japanese restaurant so they cook in front of you and you sit with other people. The service was...More

I last visited Kobe's in 1991 and it doesn't feel as though it's changed a bit. And why should it? The formula is fun, and as long as you like this style of food it's a good option. By the time you've had the rice,...More

It's loud, it's fun, the food is cooked comically in front of you. There's cheap wine and well drinks, and the kids seem to like it too.

Maybe the problem was that we didn't want the Kobe chef "show", just the food. So we were seated in the bar area. Had to absorb the screams of the blender. Food was mediocre, service was horrible (rice delivered well after the meal). Not too...More

We love Japanese steakhouses, so we were excited to try this one. The valet parking was a nice option and we always take advantage of that service when available. One thing, the cook was amateur in his 'fun' style with the customers. Just kept saying...More
