“The chefs will vary, but always tasty.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2013

We live fairly close and for a birthday or celebration, Kobe usually ends up being our pick. There is just something fun about sitting around the grill watching your food be prepared with flair. We've been several times over the years, but are some things I've noticed at Kobe in Jeffersonville, the sushi is always great, the service is always good, the food always tasty. What varies is the grill chef, some are great performers with charm, flair, and skill, some, are not. We had one the other night that mentioned that he was "always working while everyone else was having fun" he wasn't much fun for us, maybe he was tired or maybe bored with himself, not sure what it was but he cooked the food and it tasted good. The sauces were new this time a different flavor than before, I wondered if he used the "wrong" ones or "new" ones?
We'll go back, but perhaps a weekend night might be more flair, we'll be looking for a good chef and maybe excuse ourselves if it is him again.

“Fun night out with good food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2012 via mobile

Six of us went out to celebrate a birthday. We choose to go to Kobes. Three in our group had never been there before. The staff was friendly and we had res so we were seated right away. We all ordered drinks, very good but a little pricey. Our waitress was the bomb she took care of us with a smile and a sweet personally. The chef cooked us a tasty meal and he was very funny doing all the usual tricks. But this one will add a lot to your experience. We have been to several Japanese steak houses, but anymore we always go to Kobes. The 3 people who had never been there before raved about Kobes the rest of the night. I think too many drinks had something to do with it though.

“dynamite roll :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

Kobe has the best salad dressing of any japanese place ive ever been. They have great sushi as well. We always get the dynamite roll and the try a few others as qell. Staff is always checking on you to see if drink are filled. My only downside is that lunch time they do not seem as attentive, but regardless, food is always perfect.
