Picked Kobe for location and a nice business dinner. Service and meal was lackluster. We all know what to expect at this kind of venue. Definitely not worth the $$$ this time.

I have given this novelty place many chances. They put on a show with VERY so-so cuisine at a 5 star price. They will take a reservation then bait and switch you. Their "service" is abysmal. I wouldn't go back if it were free in my front yard.

I took my girlfriend to this place for her first experience. She was impressed with the entertaining chef and the quantity of food. It was great tasting and well prepared right in front of you.

We go here for special occasions and it never fails to delight. Kind of pricy but worth it. Good service but slow. Don't go starving. I really like the sushi best but the cooked meals are good and entertaining.

The restaurant is a little difficult to locate, but plenty of free parking. The food is always great and entertaining to watch the skilled preparation. The chef kept you entertained by involving the customers. The drink server was a bit lax in keeping the drinks filled.

First, they blew the reservation. We originally asked for 10, then called back in the afternoon to say it was 15. They didn't write it down, and when we arrived, there was no place for the group. We eventually had to just split up into two groups that sat out of sight from each other. When I ordered my meal,... More

We always enjoy our meals and outings at the Kobe Japanese Steak and Seafood House. Good food while you are entertained as they cook your meal to your liking right in front of you. Always have a good time with the family and nice people/owners.

We eat at Kobe about once or twice a year. It's very enjoyable - and the cooks always do an outstanding job of putting on a show while they cook the food in front of you. Even though we've seen it many times, it's still a lot of fun. The fried rice, chicken, and steak are all excellent. I guess... More

Our server was wonderful & so was our food,but I couldn't help but over hear things. A few of the servers were behind the sushi bar and I overheard them discussing how they will never drink the meso soup anymore because they witnessed the sushi chef drink straight out of the ladle and then place the ladle back into the...
