We were looking for a place to please a family group age 3 to 88. Kobe was a good choice. The food was cooked in front of us which kept the kids occupied and everything was convenient for the 80 year olds. The service was quick and attentive. We decided to share all of our orders which took a bit... More

What an experience we had for dinner. The staff were very heart warming and the Chef was great. The food was very good and the evening was a real success.

We went to Kobe's Japanese Steak House on a Saturday evening and it was wonderful. The meal was fantastic and the whole experience was memory making. I had the shrimp and scallops and they were prepared perfectly. Fun to watch Temoor prepare our meals right in front of us. Sergio our waiter never let us want for anything. Well worth... More

This place has the most delicious quality food. It's been around since like 1978 and still going strong . A lot of the employees have been there since they opened and all have excellent customer service skills. One never longs for anything while dining here. They have a fairly new manager named Tim. He has hit the ground running and... More

Overpriced for a hibachi type dinner. Dinner for 2 was $100+. Typical food, rice, veggies and choice of meat. Cool coy pond out front where you can buy good to feed fish.

My husband and i have been coming to Kobes for many years. The last two times we ate here, we were very disappointed. I ordered chicken and it was rubbery. My husbands steak was tough. The portions they gave us were much smaller than in the past and the prices had gone up. We will not be coming back...

We visit Kobe's once or twice a year to celebrate a special occasion. The restaurant opens at 5 PM and on a very hot, humid desert afternoon a group of people were kept waiting outside until the door was opened at 5:00 on the dot. It would have been nice to have been allowed to wait in the entry way... More

Forget about that other chain that can't keep their restaurants clean or well staffed. This is the original owner's son now running the show and he is keeping it up to par as his parents did as well as a great renovation. I loved feeding the Koi before dinner as a kid and now my kids get to enjoy the... More

If you like Japanese food, you have to visit this place! The food (steaks as well as sushi and sashimi) is very tasty, greatly cooked and it is just a great place to be. They are playing big shows as they cook right in front of you, so this itself is an experience worth visiting. They even have complimentary valet... More
