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

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

Attended a family Bday dinner here. It was a nice evening. Friendly service, good food. The gardens outside Kobe are beautiful, same with the bar/lounge area.

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
