My family went out for a dinner at Kobe a few weeks ago. We made a reservation for the hibachi room and sat along with another family whom we didn't know. Although we didn't speak with them, I image you could if you felt like being sociable. The presentation was very entertaining and high spirited. Our chef did many of the customary moves ( knife twirling and banging, flame poofs, volcanos made of smoking onion, flipping pieces of food into people's mouths, etc...) I thought the value, for the size of the meal (and the cooking entertainment) was very reasonable. I think our family of 5 ate for around $110 (w/o dessert). There was enough left over food for several people to take home doggy bags. Everywhere around were other families laughing, having a good time. In addition to our group I counted at least 3 other celebrating birthdays. I also wanted to point out that the chef's presentation was a decent length - probably 30 minutes or more. There is another large dining area w/o the table grills and I think that would be better suited to a quiet meal or a couple wanting to relax. Although my wife wasn't a huge fan of Kobe, I would go back. She felt that the chef's spatula touched people's plates when he passed off food - so she felt this was less than clean. I guess I felt more comfortable seeing how my food reached the plate than what happens out back in a kitchen.
