I came here as a part of a birthday party. This was a great place to come. The food preparation show was fabulous as the waiters are funny. The food was also really good with a nice early bird selection. I would come back here next time I have a large party. We really enjoyed everything!!

Food was good. Our first person who started our group we could barely understand a word, accent and noisy. This place is way, way to loud for my taste. My filet mignon was maybe the best I ever had. Huge portions and food was good. I just didn't like that we were almost kicked out after we ate. I know... More

Saturday afternoon, 5 pm, 24 members/family members of a soccer club invade the Kobe Japanese Steakhouse. Huge party, no reservations. We arrived in several small groups, but the staff were able to manage us with grace. Due to our size, it took them a few (20 minutes) to get us seated all together. Once we were seated, the usual show... More

Our party of four visited on a Saturday at 5:30. Good thing that we had reservations as the lobby and waiting area was already crowded with people without reservations. Once the chef arrived, he proceeded to put on a fun show doing egg juggling, grill art and some pyrotechnics - chatting with the diners the whole time. How do they... More

Quite an experience eating here. Food is prepared in front of you and in an entertaining way,like going for dinner and a show. The food is great and you get a lot for the money.

Tonight I ordered steak hibachi and have nothing but good things to say about my meal. The restaurant itself though seemed a little run-down. I would go back.

The filet melts in your mouth. The entertainment is great. Sushi is fresh. Beer selection could be better.

We have been to Kobe Steakhouse several times when we visit family in Florida. You should make a reservation as there is usually a wait. Its great teppanyaki, fresh and always tasty. Its a fun atmosphere and the chefs cooking your food have a good sense of humour and do a good job. They sit you at tables of 8... More

We came as a family of 5 to enjoy the meal and it was ok, but I wouldn't go back. The soup was great, really delicious broth with mushrooms and onions. The salad was just lettuce and sauce which is ok, but the main was quite disappointing. Mainly because NOODLES actually were LINGUINE! Sadly staff didn't even make us aware... More

This is the type place where reservations are recommended. They sit you at tables of 8 people and our party only had 4, thus we waited for about 45 minutes. The staff is friendly, and your food is prepared to your taste at your table by entertaining chefs. Although, it is bit noisy for conversations. The price is on the... More
