Comment: What an experience. From The ambience of the restaurant decor to the entourage of personal staff assigned to our party of nine, I can only say Kudos to Kobe. The interaction of our chef Kelly preparing our meals and providing an amusement of entertainment was amazing. The only minus was the Polaroid picture of the Birthday Lady taken with the chef was too dark & small

Comment: I came here for a birthday dinner party for a new friend of mine. For some reason, the place was super busy, and the wait was extremely long, even with a reservation. We waited for an hour to get seated, and while we waited, we sat by the bar and ordered appetizers and drinks. The place is overhyped; for me, it is just like any other hibachi place I have been to before.I ordered calamari, lobster Rangoon, and then a medium-rare steak hibachi. For drinks, I had sake, soju, and mai tai.If you want to enjoy a big meal with a big party, this is the place for you. Make sure you show up early for your reservations or make reservations to avoid waiting longer.

Comment: Warning: ⚠️ DO NOT GO IF YOURE STARVING! It may be a few hours before you actually eat. Even after making a reservation. We made a reservation, waited past that time— which is normal here; you can’t rush what they do, I get that. But, after we finally sat we had to sit and watch others eat around us who came after us and said they didn’t have a reservation…. I mean we watched their whole meal being made and watched them eat it before our person finally came. We were just hungry and angry. Lbvs It’s hard for me to enjoy myself once I’m angry. But it’s hard not to here, so we still had a good time.

Comment: The service was good, the waitress was pretty dry but the chef was lively enough. The portions of food are worth the price but the flavor definitely isn’t, was not impressed with the food at all. The ginger dressing was thick ginger mush, the steak was juicy but not flavorful, nor was any of the other food from the grill. The only thing that was actually really good were the rangoons.

Comment: Food is great at dinner time that’s the only reason for theee stars instead of one. Do not recommend coming for lunch absolutely disgusting and doesn’t taste the same at all! It is not hibachi they cook it in back. Apparently it’s when the cooks train and you can tell. Figured I’d let future visitors know as I wish I would’ve known. Server was nice.Left two full plates but still paid full bill. No accommodation to our dissatisfaction.

Comment: Went to Kobe for NYE. Almost everything was great, including service, food, food preparation entertainment, etc. Spend the extra $3 to get the fried rice upgrade. A group as small as 6 will have an 18percent tip added to your bill. We were seated about 40 minutes after our reservation. Dont come starving. The amount of food in your doggie bag will likely be substantial.

Comment: First of all our bday onion tower was only 3 rings! Our Chef did not do the “egg roll” joke. (This really happened but it’s kinda funny)But seriously we were seated for 50 minutes before our chef ever arrived to our table. A manager was requested but never came to our table until the very end. Our initial waitress, Katlynn , was awesome, the remainder of the service was lack luster at the westport Kobe location.

Comment: Love the food, love love. Service tonight was lacking. 18% tip was included on the bill already for 4 of us. Never got refills on our water. Had to ask for the salads. Our cook was just ok. Not much of a show, saw other tables with much more going on. He also offended my bil with talks of him liking mushrooms not meaning the kind we eat. We have had much better in the past.

Comment: Its definitely a cool place but Ive noticed that theyve slacked the service after covid, and they dont provide as much for you and you just kind of like a number. It used to feel more personalized and Interactive. Now they give you basic service and not as much food but they make sure they throw the gratuity on.

Comment: Buyer beware! Restaurant has arbitrary policy regarding large groups. While one month ago my group of five did not get the 18% surcharge, tonight my group of four did. When asked the manager kept saying usually we charge it, usually but admitted that they dont always. He directed us to the clearly posted sign regarding the policy. We asked the hostess to point out the sign. After she got on the floor and dug under her desk and could not find it, we asked for the manager again. He shrugged and said that if the server trusts the customer they may not charge it.We are really disappointed as this was a favorite of our family.

Comment: I give bar service 1 star because of the bartender that was serving around 9:30pm November the 18th with blonde hair kind of young looking. She looked me in my face and asked the brown hair lady if she needed something done since there’s no drinks to serve. The brown hair lady had to tell her to serve me. Then my friend walked up and she walked passed her also and it took the brown hair lady to ask if she wanted a drink. The place is great and that was my first time this has happened to me and normally they are great when it comes to customer service.

Comment: We had a wonderful time. The chef made dinner entertaining with flames and utensil tricks at the hibachi grill. We ordered the Shogun, which was a combination of filet mignon, scallops (or shrimp) and lobster. I highly recommend it. The ginger dressing on the salad was a unique flavor combination....very good. Bring your appetite because it is a lot of food. I had a Baha Mama to drink.

Comment: I had a girls night and we booked for dinner, the service was great food was also so thats not my issue. My issue is you could be having such a good time and not look at your receipt and just consciously pay whatever it is that is says but next time you book look at the receipt because the initial one they bring out have totally different numbers from the one you sign it happened last night and it seemed a little off to me so I just want to warn everyone else. Especially if you book with 8-9 people, paying gratuity is fine but they tax it so it’s an additional 10.52 on everyone’s bill which on the receipt it states 18% is only 9.90. Then the copy you sign it changes but at that time you already swiped your card so you don’t know how much they took until you open your account.

Comment: We can for lunch, something new for them from what I hear. There was no one else there. Quite a few folks coming in for pick up orders though.I thought it was very reasonable and the food very good. Came out hot and fresh.The lobster Rangoon was very good, I recommend.I had the lunch combo with chicken and scallops. Seasoned well and I needed a box to take back to my hotel.I’d come back for sure.

Comment: On 9/2/2023, had reservations for 7:15 & & 7:30 seating. There were a total of 17 in the party. After waiting for an opening that would accommodate the total party. Which was a nice jester on behalf of Kobe. With this size of a party we had two different chefs.One was extremely outgoing and the other one came out as if he really did not want to be there or he was in training. His inter- action with our side, was limited. His cooking abilities remain to be seen, it was awful. Rice not cooked thoroughly nor the noodles. Most of the meet and vegetables were over cooked. He was not using the right amount of oil of any kind or seasoning. Nor did he fill the sauce dishes or ask anyone if they would like to have some.He was sloppy in the way he served the food. It was all around the steam table, and he never attempt to remove any of it. His behavior was as if you were giving food to an animal, literally.Im writing this review simply because I know how the chefs are required to make your experience delightful. They are embracing and seem to enjoy what they do. Besides it was not my first time there and no one on my side was pleased with their meal nor the service. It was a spoiler and we were celebrating a birthday.:( :( :(

Comment: First off if you like Shoguns I would go there.... Secondly the service we received from the server was HORRIBLE! We had a $250 bill and sat most of the meal with empty glasses. Our server never asked if our meal was fine and if we needed anything. Hell I dont remember her even telling us her name. Our reservation was messed up because of them. We will NEVER go back!

Comment: We went to Kobe restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I highly recommend doing reservations beforehand. We enjoyed cocktails while we waited. The server was attentive and explained the menu. The main course came with complimentary soup and salad. The soup is made out of meat stock, so being vegetarian, i could not enjoy it. The ginger salad dressing was wonderful. The chef made the experience enjoyable. The portions are large and we enjoyed our visit to Kobe. Be prepared to come on an empty stomach!!

Comment: This was my first experience with a hibachi style restaurant, and I really enjoyed it. Having said that, Im not sure how this compares to other similar establishments. I can say that the waitress was pleasant and attentive and the show and interaction with the chef was really fun. My wife and I both had the Komasan (filet mignon and shrimp). The other member of our party got the teriyaki steak. We all agreed that the food was great. Be sure to try the yum-yum sauce.

Comment: Dinner was delicious. Our chef was fun and entertaining; however, the atmosphere was below expectations. It was difficult to enjoy our meal with the guests wearing crop tops, tight shorts and just dressing down. If Kobe Steakhouse had a dress code, I would return. There are many restaurants available in STL where the guests look presentable and not showing off their mid rifts. Show some respect for yourself and dress appropriate.

Comment: The view was a lot better when it was on the top floor, but the current location is a lot less claustrophobic.The food is great like always, but the prices have gone up.The beware aspect is the bill. They add 18% gratuity to every bill regardless of party size. If you pay by card, they bring you back the one with no line items, only a total (that already includes that 18%), a line for you to write the tip (not additional tip), and a line for you to write the grand total. So if you dont pay attention and tip like average, then you are actually tipping more than 40%

The host was friendly, kind, and made you feel welcomed. This restaurant is kind of pricey. Just keep that in mind when you decide to come out to fine dining. There is a garage that you can park in to protect your car from the elements.

Comment: Enjoyed our time here because the staff is amazing. Our chef was hilarious and very entertaining. He did everything right. Our waitress was friendly and went above and beyond to help when one of the littles got nervous of the fire (part of the show).The food, meh. Too much ginger dressing on the salad (see pic). Rice was okay but would be better as traditional fried rice. Noodles were extremely bland. I got surf n turf, which was weird because everyone at the table has the same amount of shrimp, even those who didnt order it.The steak was okay. Small amount, not much seasoning. Not the chefs fault because the company tells them how to do it.Overall it was okay. I wouldnt eat takeout. The experience was better than the food.

Comment: Since we discovered this place several months ago we have made it a once a month spot for dinner.Weve tried a couple of other Japanese, cook at your table restaurants in St. Louis and this one is, by far, the best.We always get the Shogun for two. You each get a soup, salad, vegetables, rice, noodles, filet, lobster tail, scallops, shrimp and mushrooms. For us, $90 for all of this is a great deal! We always have leftovers. Oh.. for $3 more you can get fried rice. We love the fried rice. I think it might be all the butter.

Comment: It was good, but nothing was special. Ive had better elsewhere, for less money. I never have seen a chef ask for help for so long and not get it. The staff were having a great time, at the expense of attending to customers. I had a hard time getting my Wife another cocktail and my ice tea was empty and ignored for over half the meal. Our table had a difficult customer, so chef was kinda off game, and we were there for 90 minutes. My Wife was asked once if she wanted another drink... Thats crazy. I wasnt asked about my iced tea until I had the waitress called over for my Wife. The chef didnt get all the ingredients and called for help a half a dozen times, no one came. He called for security multiple times (jokingly, but still) no one came. The food was on the grill and he was straight up alone. Was crazy, like were spending $30+/person for awesome chef and sub-Chiles support staff. They later forgot my whole entrée, was quickly fixed but it was a feel bad as my tenderloin didnt look any different than the people who ordered the combo plates. My Daughter liked the cake. The people next to us ordered the calamari and it came as a single burger like patty, which is not how I wished my calamari would look like.

Comment: The family celebrated my grandsons 10th birthday and he really enjoyed himself. Please note, this was NOT his first time there, so kudos to you. However, we had a couple of concerns. We noticed the difference between the amount of food being served at our table vs the table across from ours, which was a lot less. That means, as a family, we received less food... NOT GOOD! My second concern was once the bill came I noticed the gratuity was more than it shouldve been! It was for 20%, not 18% as noted on our tickets! The server FAILED to mention the gratuity, therefore, additional money was given, which was so unfair to my family members. Plus the amount of gratuity was calculated after tax NOT before, which Im sure is illegal.

Comment: I’ve been there twice in a month. The food the first time was ok at best. I ordered a filet mignon (medium) and shrimp. The steak was well done and the shrimp were rubbery. I immediately told the chef my steak was inedible and he ignored me and left the grill. I told everyone who served us, nobody cared. The second time, a couple of days ago, the food was pretty good but the steak was well done again. I will not be going back. The prices are outrageous for the quality of the food. I really miss Robata of Japan. They were amazing.

Comment: Kobe has officially upset me. Usually I have a pleasant time here, but the last time I went was horrible. Besides the fact that they charged my 10 year old child for an adult meal. One of the cooks slammed on something and knocked a grease jar over and it splattered all over me and my husband. You cant get grease out unfortunately, so they thought they could make up with taking 50%off my meal....it seemed like it was only tax free...I am not happy

Comment: Today I went with my mother to celebrate my 21st birthday and everything was amazing. The food was delicious and the chef was incredibly funny. I do wish that there was a knife with the fork when we sat down because my mother needed to cut her food up a bit more, but everything else was amazing. I cant wait till we come back.

Comment: This is a hard one. The front of the house was horrible. No one knew what was happening, it was awkward, and we almost left.But once you are back it is perfectly fine. Good food. Never done hibachi before. Had allot of fun. Would definitely do again.

Comment: It was my first time there and I have a food allergy to shrimp. So I was the only one order chicken at the table everyone else had shrimp lobster and steak. The cook cooked up the chicken and gave the majority of it to the other individuals at the table and gave me a teaspoon full considering I paid for chicken I received a teaspoon of it. I then called to complain. The manager say he will have someone call me back that was over a week ago. And I haven’t heard nothing. I was pretty upset because that was my first time there, and we paid a nice price for our food and drinks. I will not be going back. I was charged and didn’t get the proteins of my choice.

Comment: Went for Moms 60th birthday and were told large parties could only be reserved for 3pm. We went ahead and split group on reservation days ahead and asked to be seated by one another. We ended up being sat in separate rooms where we could not even see each other.The hostess kept repeating when we got there they know theyre not sitting together. It was as though instead of trying to assure a good experience for our family they were dismissive and inconsiderate. Also, we paid to have picture and dessert for our mom and did not receive service. I was in the other room and did not find out until after we left. Plus they charged one member of our party and extra $100 on their card that was not reflected on their bill but on the credit statement and is to be returned. We were robbed financially and in experience. Finally the Hibachi experience was okay my husbands mouth was burned from hot shrimp being thrown in his mouth, our cook informed us the waiter was not giving good service and timing was off people had eaten the rice before protein was ready and protien before noodle was ready and only one sauce provided upon request versus being made readily available and the food tastes better after I brought it home and added more seasoning to it. All considered I would not recommend. My kids would call me a Karen for leaving this feedback but I dont care 🤦🏽‍♀️.

Comment: It was very good. Always has been a pleasant, and enjoyable experience!! It seems fairly clean . I like it better than Sho- Gun Japanese steak house. It seems to be a scale up from Sho-Gun . I think the Hibatchi chefs are more experienced , and better quality food. Love this place!!

Comment: Update.. Great experience. We loved our chef. He was entertaining and funny. The food was amazing. Our only issue was my husband asked to exchange scallops for the shrimp. They charged us almost $20 just to exchange.. ( which we didnt find out about until it was over) She didnt bring our soup and salad until the chef was already cooking for a bit, and didnt come back until much later. Our whole table was out of water. She asked if we wanted sauces, never brought those.. but the chef and the food was amazing. Even the girl bussing the table was helpful. ( she brought our sauce)

Comment: I have been in the customer service industry for 17 years and currently hold a district manager position. I say this so you know Im not your typical patron or Karen. I understand the challenges that come with the current employment environment in customer service as well. This was, unfortunately, one of the worst customer service experiences Ive had, and there was no reason. The hosts were not busy or short staffed. When we came to Kobe, there were four hostesses that were carrying on personal conversations as we stood there for several minutes waiting to be acknowledged. We asked if we could put our names in for dinner but wanted to sit in the bar area, not the grill area. This would have been a great opportunity to communicate that there is a limited menu in the bar area, but they didnt. They took our names and said it would be 45 minutes. We waited 40 minutes when we got our text that our table was ready. One of the hosts walked us back to a grill table. At that point, we asked her if we could sit in the bar at a regular table for dinner. She said yes and to seat ourselves (another opportunity to tell us the bar menu is limited). When we got back up to the bar area, she was nowhere to be found, and we were never given menus. After waiting 20 minutes, I went back up to the host stand to ask for menus and to place an order. Again, three hosts carried on personal conversations and couldnt be bothered with a customer standing right in front of them. I finally got tired of standing there and asked for a menu, and if we could order food and pointed to our table. We are now over an hour into this experience when the host finally told me we could only order drinks and appetizers in the bar area. We left and went to an amazing restaurant in Chesterfield. I highly recommend having a serious coaching conversation with the four hosts that worked Saturday night. This was our first and only time here. We will not be back, but Id hate for someone else to have the same experience.

Comment: The service was excellent and overall the food was very good. But a couple of issues I had was the area around the Hibachi table was a bit cramped, and our chef did an excellent job with entertaining everyone and provided a very good meal overall; the vegetables were a bit over cooked and therefore lacked flavor.But definately an enjoyable evening and with good atmosphere.

I got the fried rice, cost extra but well worth it. I got the teriyaki chicken, very good. The yum yum sauce was my favorite. Will definitely go back

Comment: Went here for a birthday. Its a typical hibachi. Main complaint is that it is incredibly loud, so loud that its hard to even hear the chefs and servers. The food is good, typical hibachi fare. Drinks are good too and reasonably priced. Staff was professional, even when they had to shout above the din.

Comment: Our experience at Kobe Steakhouse was absolutely horrendous. Our party made a reservation for 7:30pm and we did not get to sit until 9:30pm. We were then rushed out of the restaurant before we were fully able to finish our meal. The manager never explained the no reservation policy they had. We made our reservation three weeks in advance and arrived an hour early for our reservation. The manager let other diners who were walk ins sit and eat before all of us as we waited patiently in the lobby for over two and half hours. The waiters only checked on us once during the meal and made jokes and crude remarks to rush us out after bringing boxes and checks immediately after the chef finished cooking- leaving us no time to finish our food. This reservation was for a very special occasion and the service we experienced was extremely heartbreaking. The manager was nonchalant, apathetic, and unapologetic about his mistake the entire time and did not offer any solace while our party was there. He continued to make excuses as to why our party could not sit as walk in diners poured in and were directed to their tables swiftly. The manager/management at Kobe Steakhouse and other staff were very inhospitable and treated us very poorly. The restaurant closes at 8:30pm and we did not leave until 11pm after being rushed out. We tried not to let this ruin our celebration- as it was a very special night, however it certainly put a damper on the mood. I would not recommend going to this restaurant if you are expecting swift and kind service. It was a terrible experience. For the respect and patience our party showed, the crudeness, disrespect, and apathy shown toward our party was not deserved. I wish I could have spent my hard earned money somewhere else.

Comment: The food and service is always amazing. However when I make reservations it always takes 30 minutes to an HOUR to be seated. Whats the point of making a reservation if it takes that long to be seated? I come here frequently and this is ALWAYS the case. The greeters all have attitudes because people are constantly irritated asking how much longer will they wait. Please fix this I love the food.

Comment: Our party had a reservation for 8PM, we did not get seated until 9PM, and our chef did not arrive until 10PM. We were the last table to leave the restaurant. Kind of crazy since we were not a walk in.Our chef was nice and it was a fun experience - but to me a reservation is reserving a spot at a specific time and this is a failure of policy / overbooking.If you read other reviews this seems to be a regular pattern, so ownership should consider doing away with reservations entirely or figuring out why they seem to be constantly overbooked.I don’t blame the staff at all for this, but diners should be aware that wait times might exceed two hours even with a reservation, which seems to have little impact on when you will be seated. I understand that they emphasize reservations do not guarantee a spot, but let us look at the dictionary.What Are Reservations? Restaurant reservations are an arrangement guests make in advance to confirm a table for their party at a specified time.Saying a reservation does not mean you will get a table at the specified time is an oxymoron. To me it sounds like they accept walk ins and do not leave room for those who have actually reserved a table. Ownership or management should take accountability for this.

Comment: Made reservations for 6:45p but wasn’t seated til 2 hrs later. In between time there were walk-ins that came around the same time and got seated with my party. The staff did not do a good job of keep everyone informed of when they would be seated. I believe there were too many immature young adults that worked there that haven’t had the proper training. Hence if you’re short staff inform the customers about what’s going so everyone will have an idea of what’s going on. Not that we got seats two hrs later we sat another 45 min before our chef made it to the table. The server I had did not bring the steamed rice to the table like the chef had asked. He had to ask another associate to grab the rice for my daughter. I believe Kobe Japanese restaurant is overbooking and more concerned about the revenue and not giving customers a good quality experience. It’ll be a longtime before I return back to Kobe’s.

Comment: We went on Thursday night. There were 8 of us so we had the table to ourselves which was nice. We had a reservation but still had to wait a few minutes for our table. Service was good. Food was good. It is really entertaining for sure. Portions are huge so you can easily split an entree. As long as you know what to expect this is a great night out in my opinion.

Comment: If I could give a zero I would. Had a reservation at 830 was told not to be late or they would give our table away. Party of 7 everyone was on time early in fact. When we checked in was told it would be a 30 min wait. What? You threatened to give the table away if we werent on time and now you say we have to wait 30 min? We were not seated for an hour. They said sit over there at that table, did not even take us to the table once we were seated they said others would be seated at the table and we would have to move. Hold on you didnt seat us nor did you tell us there was a seating arrangement. My boyfriend and I were seated at opposite sides of the table, why. My boyfriend had to go to the bar to get our partys drinks because no one ever came to ask. Once seated it was another 45 min before the cook even came to the table. The restaurant closed at 10. We are way passed that now. We finally got the food to eat at 11 and they immediately brought boxes and bags for the food along with checks because the restaurant was now closed. Are you kidding me? Each check had an 18% gratuity added. The hostess was rude as hell. I would not recommend nor will I ever patronize this restaurant again. Customer service is what gets ppl in your doors.

Comment: I usually have a good experience when we go, however, the Hibachi Chef we has lacked enthusiasm, was hesitant to accommodate requests, did not season or cook the food properly, and seemed to not be able to keep up with what the guest ordered. All the guests around the table were finding entertainment on their phones. Management seemed far removed from handling complaints and only seemed to be concerned with getting paid. I know there was quite a few complaints but their response seemed to be generic in nature and thoughtless.

Comment: It was my birthday, I had never been to Kobes but I heard so much about it, therefore, I wanted to dine here for dinner. My friends and I had a great time. This is a restaurant were they seat you and another group around a big table to cook and eat together. Therefore, make sure that you are feeling the vibes of whoever you are sitting with. We had a group of 4, they seated us along side of another group of 4 people. Not only was someone in their group celebrating a birthday, we clicked immediately! Our cook had an awesome personality, we ate good , and celebrated all evening like one big family 👪! It was fantastic! Kobes Steakhouse thanks for the hospitality! See you next time!

Comment: Had a good experience overall at Kobe Steakhouse. Came in early for our reservation and the staff were able to seat us in about 20 minutes after being given a buzzer. Although, it did take around 40 minutes for the chef to arrive to start cooking our main dishes. The chef definitely liked to throw food our way and put on a show. There is definitely room for Kobe’s to enhance their hygiene and cleaning procedures from my observations. The waiters/waitresses could also come to check up on guests, including refilling their beverages more often as well. Still a good experience overall though with Kobe Steakhouse.

Comment: My family will not be returning. it has gone downhill. We have gone here every year for family birthday dinner for the last decade and it gets worse each year. A few years ago i left a review of how much i enjoyed this place but it seems ever since it moved locations its been very unpleasant.The dining rooms are crowded you cannot hear your own table.There is always a super long wait, even with reservations. My reservation was at 745 and the chef did not start cooking at our table till around 9:20. We didnt leave till past 10. I was also very uncomfortable that they required a credit card to make a reservation.They never brought us or the surrounding parties booster seats for the toddlers, i ended up searching the resturant myself after asking twice, and putting my son in a dirty booster seat i found at an abandoned table.They overbook the restaurant constantly. They tried to make us squeeze 6 adults into into a spot with room for only 4 plates and tried to overseat another family near us who also complained. When us and some of the other parties complained about having to basically sit on top of one another they brushed it off and said it was just part of communal dining.We have gone here for so long and they always had 8 to a table, not 11 people to a table. They offered no apologies or discounts for the encounter either. The waitress and chef were both very good but it didnt feel even close to worth all the trouble.Its a shame the food is so good but not worth the trouble or the price.

Comment: Do not go if you don’t have a reservation!! You will literally wait 2+ hours. I had no reservation but just a small party of 6. There were no reservations left online so I figured I’d just go early to put us on the waiting list. Still waited 2 hours to be seated. The guy at the front was extremely rude to patrons coming in with no reservation.Once back the dining experience was great from the cooks to the servers. I’ve had better hibachi food. The hibachi experience was nice but the food wasn’t worth the 2 hour wait in my opinion.

Comment: The service and food quality was horrible. The hosts told me to wait against a wall when my table was ready, so they could finish their conversation. Cocktails came to the table wrong. Appetizers were frozen not fresh seafood, and weren’t hot when they came to the table. For a restaurant charging $35 + a plate wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

Comment: Food was great Unfortunately I didnt take any pictures (was with a different crowd of ppl I didnt know) but the performance the chef put on was nice. Had people laughing, but everybody was scared to catch the shrimp lol. I had the Chefs Delight which was chicken and shrimp. I was boring and ordered a water (dont boo me too bad please) I think the fried rice was the best part though. He also gave me noodles which were cut too short to be able to twirl around a for...or even pick up with a fork nonetheless. Oh I cant forget the sautéed mushrooms!...alongside the rice...the mushrooms were a very close...if not just a hare behind the rice (in tasting amazing!). Id Def go again and especially if its somebodys first time goin. Thanks for the great food and service!

Comment: This Kobe is located in a shared building, which is a little offputting to some, but the interior is actually very nice, perfect for a business setting or an important date. I indulged in the shogun dinner(around 65 with tip and tax) which involved some of the freshest and tenderest shrimp, lobster, wagyu, and other meats. The hibachi chefs are very talented and know how to put on an unforgettable show. The meals themselves taste pretty average, but coupled with the freshness of the ingredients and the experience, make Kobe a great place for dinner. Service is great but expect a wait if you didnt make a reservation beforehand.

Comment: Very very salty. Prepare for the most butter and soy sauce you have ever had. The show is fun but nothing special to other hibachi. I got the veggie platter and unfortunately I could have mixed in another gallon of rice to even it out. Better luck next time guys but for now 2 stars.

Comment: I am very disappointed in experience. I planned for my family and friends to meet me at Kobe’s to celebrate my 39th birthday for a 7:30pm for a party of 13. Prior to making the reservation, I read their policy online website to make sure I had all the information I need before booking my reservation. Their policy online states, “At Kobe we strongly encourage making reservations for your dining experience, however a reservation is not a guaranteed seating time. It is an order of seating guarantee at an estimated time based on our normal reservation flow giving your party preference over walk-in customers.” With that thought in mind, I book my reservation 3 weeks in advance for 7:30pm, but tell my guests out reservation is 6:30 since I know there are some who will run late. Day of event, I arrive at 6:35 greet the hostess, tell her about my reservation and asked me of my whole party has arrived I say no. She states we can’t seat you until you whole party arrives. I agree and waiting for the remainder of the guests to arrive. By 6:45 everyone was present except one person so I let the hostess know my full party was present and she hands be a buzzer. By 7pm, all of my guests were present. Again, this a 7:30pm reservation and my guests are all on time. Understanding that there is no guarantee we will not be seated at 7:30pm, we will be given priority over walk in guests. By 8:30, I have watch several large parties come and go, in addition to several people smaller parties walk in with a limited wait be seated. At 9:15 I ask the hostess do we know how much longer it will be she states you are next to be seated. At this point, I’m hungry but still hopeful. By 9:45, about half of my guests have left. I got to the hostess and ask again as I believe my wait is way too excessive and can we at least sit it the bar area to order which she states that is not possible for the full experience. She states since i have a larger party it takes more time to be seated. I agree but I tell her that have of my party is gone now. Manager hears the conversation and says “you’re the party of 13 and half of your guests have left” I say yes…I am a party of 8. He apologies for the long wait and say he would seat us shortly. At this point, I see the policy in the restaurant that states, “if a patron is late their reservation will adjust put on the bottom of the waiting list.” Fifteen minutes later, i ask the hostess again and she states the table seat 26 people and we have to make sure all seats are filled to accommodate the experience with the chef. Manager then comes to seat my party and apologizes again but now I’m getting upset because i realize that the reason why we being waiting so long is because they were trying to fill a whole other side with a different chef when my side originally already had 13 people. So I’m thinking things would be great from here. Nope! We wait another 25 minutes after being seated before we are even offered water or menus. As a disclaimer, I hate complaining at restaurants because more do what they can but I would rather reflect my unhappiness in my tip. The young lady who was our server was PHENOMENAL. Even with the good food my experience was worse because the general manager (non-black)send another “manager” (who is black) over to handle me. I ask the question, your policy states what happens if the patron is late but what happens if you don’t uphold your end as a business. After several minutes of foolishness. Someone attempted to adjust the bill but by taking the young lady’s tip. I’m leaving out a lot of unfair treatment on my end but at this point I want to make sure she get her money. I have her go take the receipt to correct the bill again and we still each tip her 30%. This is very disappointing because it made me miss my next location where I lost $600 on a VIP booth with bottle service downtown. So I lost out all around and on my birthday!!! HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED!!!

Comment: Omg i went yesterday on worse experience ever. Kobe going down hill. They make you make reservations which I did. Then won’t seat you until full party is there which we were. Then they give you a buzzer. We waited for hour after our 830 reservation. Then waited another 20 mins before we even got water. What is the darn point of making reservations if you are then given a buzzer. I’m so disappointed. The food was good service horrible.

Comment: The cook was just horrible, Server was great but all in all not worth the time oe disappoinment. You tell someone you dont eat something and they give it to you anyways its a bit disturbing. In addition to giving us the scraps from the show and giving the other party all the food which they left and didnt eat. Just an overall bad experience but as an African American I feel me complaining would do no good because they look at us as always complaining about the service we receive. But Id never reference this pace to anyone. And I work in a corporate setting.

Comment: Disappointing experience. Made a reservation for 6:15 and was still not seated by 7 when we had to give up on a table as had a hungry child. Was told reservations arent for that certain time but just that you would get a seat that night which is a new one. Love their food but be aware that if they are busy you will be waiting even with a reservation.

Comment: Great Teppanyaki in Westport. The chefs have fun with their show & the food is super fresh. Our chef Michael did a great job preparing our dinner. Everything was absolutely delicious!! We only wish the second half of our 15 person group (the last fam of 5) would have been able to join us at our table. They werent there when our buzzer went off 45 min after our reservation time, so instead another random group was sat at our table and they had to decide to wait to eat with strangers instead of with our (bday) party or to go. So they left. And we had 5 strangers at what was supposed to be a private table, who were sat before we could even order our first drink.

Comment: We had reservations and still waited 45 minutes to be seated. Horrible bar service and the bartender was actually arguing with other customers. Once we were seated, the waitress never came back to table after serving one drink, except to drop off the check. They serve fried rice with every entree but then add a charge of $3/bowl. We will never come back here again.

Comment: Our family went there to celebrate my stepdaughters birthday. It was quite an experience. The food was cooked in the Japanese style of course, and there was plenty of it. MJ and I had egg rolls for appetizers. Everyone got a salad and broth as part of the dinner. The entrees were plentiful and delicious. My lady and I had steak and chicken. Quite good.The unique experience was having our food prepared on front of all of us. The cook didnt just cook, he put on a humorous performance. His was witty and entertaining. He played music with the cooking utensils and the steel cutting service. He was worth the show. He was a good cook too.We all had a great time and plan to go there again.

Comment: It is good but not what I expected.The food is not great, just good. Nothing special.The salad was like a bunch of lettuce straight fromthe bag and dressing on too.The fried riced lacked flavor.The shrimp and salmon were ok. Not much you can do with those though.The vegetables were just ok, nothing special at all.There was no show, the cook just cooked.The bar area ia messy, unorganized, and loud.There are no decorations, so the ambient is too boring.I really expected and experience. Nope, just food.Surely I won’t go back because there is nothing special to go back to.Service was good though, nice people.

Comment: Went to a birthday party with a couple of friends and we had a blast. Our waiter was very quick to take our orders, got our drinks, salad and soups very quickly (and there was 10 of us altogether!). We had a very entertaining chef who was very fun to talk with and fun to watch when cooking the food. We were all impressed and incredibly satisfied. Great birthday all around and will definitely come back for more!

Comment: I really enjoyed my first experience here last week ! I’m originally from a small town, was in St. Louis visiting some friends and family. We decided to try this place out , although we did have to wait awhile but it was not that much of a big deal. The decor was pretty nice and good lighting to take pictures. Leslie was so friendly to all of us. She took all our photo on my phone. She also sat us with with Karen. The whole table loved her, she was informative of all that came with the meal and what her favorite drinks and appetizers were. She asked what we were celebrating but we weren’t just trying something new. The main show though was TYSON he was so funny and entertaining BUT the food was so good! I got the Teriyaki Shrimp with extra side of salmon! It was so delicious, l really enjoyed him performance show! The drink I got was also good it was on fire . I can’t remember the name but order it you won’t be disappointed! We felt like royalty lol the service was amazing! I’ll be back personally. Thanks everyone!

Comment: We had a reservation for 6:30 and we were not able to be seated until 7:00. We waited at the bar until another party showed up to fill up the table since we only had 4 in our party. We enjoyed cocktails while we waited. We were offered a milkshake and an appetizer on the house since we waited a little longer. This was greatly appreciated. They were very busy but the staff did their best to accommodate and make us happy! Our chef was so funny and cooked everything perfectly. We enjoyed the food and the experience. Thank you for the special night.

Comment: This experience was HORRIBLE. We made a reservation for my son to celebrate his 15th birthday. Our reservation was for 8:15pm, long story short we didnt get seated until 9:37pm. We were given a plethora of excuses to why we couldnt be seated. 1- no room 2- cleaning the table 3- we are next 4- trying to sit us together 5- cleaning the table again. I honestly can understand being behind however the managers attitude was terrible (may 7 2022). The customer service was the absolute worst. We had a party of children who were forced to eat after 10 pm. The best thing about our experience was a man named Marvin who was kind, courteous, attentive, and patient. Marvins attitude was the only reason we even stayed to eat. Truth is, I will NOT visit this place again. Some empathy, compensation, and or honesty would have made a world of difference. Lobes Westport you dropped the ball in a major way on this one.

Comment: I took me and my wife here tonight, hoping to have a wonderful dinner and great time here. But it turned out to be the total opposite. We didnt feel welcomed at all. It felt like they did what they had to do just to get our money. We had no waitress, like all the white people did. They sat us in the back and didnt want to sit anyone else around us. I wont be back, very disappointed

Comment: Another awesome meal at Kobe Steakhouse of Japan at Westport Plaza in St. Louis. I’ve been in the habit of ordering the filet for my entree and remaining satisfied with my shrimp appetizer for a number of years, but I finally decided that the shrimp is simply too good to settle for just a few. This time I ordered the Komasan under “Specialties” (filet and shrimp combo), and I’ll probably be ordering this from now on. Soooooo good. Of course the miso soup and salad with ginger dressing continue to deliver. I’d come here weekly if I could. I always leave pleased. Can’t wait to come back.

Comment: Took my family to dinner for my daughters birthday. The chef was great and the food was amazing as always. However our waitress was terrible. She completely ruined my daughters 16th birthday. She butchered the surprise when I was trying to discretely remind her we ordered the birthday cake. Then never even brought the cake we ordered. My daughter didnt get birthday cake on her birthday because of that horrible women. Not to mention she was slow and we barely got a refill on our drinks. I would have forced her to do her job, but we waited so long for our reservation it was 11pm and the kids were falling asleep by the time we left. My daughter was disappointed.

Comment: Our chef was fantastic, as was our server.The manager who said his name was Joshua was wholly unprofessional and is the sole reason I as well as others in my party will not be returning.We made reservations well in advance to celebrate mine and my sons birthday for 14 people. We arrive before our reservation slot of 6:30p and check in. We arent seated until after 7:20p. When we are being seated, we were broken up into two groups in separate rooms.In my room, the group at the opposite grill was leaving. We asked Joshua to put the other 7 on that side so we can all dine together. He says he wont with no explanation. We asked for someone above him, who came in and said it would be no issue to accommodate that.Joshua then returns and snidely asks my husband, are you happy now? The grill wasnt turned on, dinner was severely delayed and the unprofessional attitude of Joshua basically ensured we wont return.

Comment: I had a 6:30pm reservation today 04.01.22 and was told upon early arrival that I would be seated within 30 minutes which would be 7:00pm. It was completely packed and I was told that we can either sit at an open table with the buzzer or the bar. My guest and I chose the bar! We sat at the bar but 8:25pm we still hadn’t been seated (our buzzer was still red and never turned green). I go back to the desk to ask how long our wait would be since we were coming up on 2 hours of waiting. The lady said that she called our names and we never responded which is a complete LIE because we were right by the door. They also weren’t accommodating at all. This was my birthday dinner and i’m completely upset. It seems that when you’re a pair or small group they don’t care because they only want to seat larger groups/families. I will be contacting corporate as well because that’s ridiculous and for them to be so nonchalant is beyond me. I would give them ZERO stars if I could for their customer service and my day was ruined. Like why should I make reservations and they can’t even keep up with it?

Comment: My friend and I would come here almost weekly, for years, and it was great! Awesome staff, even better food and their wait time from waiting area to food in your mouth was always efficient. Lately, the last few visits have not been as pleasant. The staff has a more nonchalant attitude and we’ve encountered a few who are just flat out rude. The wait times have increased and I’ve never sat at a table for so long without being offered a drink. I’m not sure if the management has changed or what, but it is not the same. However, the food is always delicious and spot on for what I request!!

Comment: My wife and I attempted to have a nice meal here since we have always heard great things about it. We made a reservation for 8:30 on a Saturday night and arrived five minutes beforehand. As soon as we walked in, it was chaos. They didn’t have enough pagers and told us we can wait in the lounge or at the bar. We decided to grab a bottle of wine from the bar and take it to the table with us. We finally ordered our drink after the two separate bartenders noticed we were starting to look frustrated. They seemed to be serving friends first along with joking around which made the wait even longer. They didn’t cut the foil when they uncorked it and didn’t pour our glasses either. (The foil seems petty but we were expecting at least some class from this establishment). We waited until 8:50 and decided to ask when we would be seated and couldn’t give us a time but they gave us a pager this time. We ended up setting everything down and walking out. Hopefully it was just a weird night for them but the entire experience was very disappointing to say the least.

While your meal is prapared chef performs tricks and jokes. Spatula launched shrimp into your waiting mouth.. dont move they are usually dead on accurate. Had a blast. Highly recommend for first date.

Comment: Walked in with a 630 reservation. Sat at the bar until 728 waiting for a table. Finally made it back to the table and sat another 30 minutes before the chef arrived. No refills on drinks, and we didnt get our soup and salad before like the rest of the tables around us. Our waiter forgot us. The chef was fun, and the food was delicious, but I would not go back.

Comment: A fantastic experience with an amazing staff from the host to the server to the hibachi chef.We started with the calamari ($9) which having ordered this over the last 16+ years at various establishments in various cities, I hate to say this was slightly overcooked and underwhelming for the start of the meal and therefore I dont recommend ordering it.My wife and I ordered the Shogun Dinner (for 2 which comes with 2 filet mignon, 2 lobster tails, and your choice of either shrimp or scallops) which for $78 + the salad (w/ either ranch or house ginger dressing), veggies, fried rice (+$3), mushrooms, and shrimp (toss and catch), plus the entertainment of your hibachi chef was worth every cent.I also had the Strawberry Smoothie (+$5) which while quaint in its size was delicious.I would definitely recommend going with a group as it will be quite the experience for everyone with a ton of laughs and a full stomach.

Comment: UPDATE: After we had to wait well over an hour to be seated for our reservation that was at 8pm, add another hour to that that we sat at the grill before a chef came out. We sat at that grill for almost 45min before anyone even came to take our drink orders or at least apologize for the wait. I mean we were ignored & it was terribly rude. I spoke to the Manager & explained that she should have at least took the lead to apologize & our drink orders so well know we werent just being ignored. Our chef was awesome, once he started but the wait was terrible. We were told they had an issue in the kitchen & itll be just a moment. Nedless to say we began eating around 10:30pm... 2.5hrs after our reservation! Who eats a full course meal at 11pm. This was totally unacceptable & they offered a % off but it didnt make up for our ruined evening as we had other plans to celebrate my daughters bday. SO DISAPPOINTED.12/17/21 - They only get a 2 because I love the soup! My daughter had reservations at 8pm, then when arrived they told her it was pushed back to 8:15pm. We checked several times & theyre favorite words are 15minutes, 5 minutes. Its been a dang hour & were still not seated. I understand the RSVP doesnt guarantee time to seat, but I also understand it shouldnt take a darn hour! Im no longer hungry at this point. Its ridiculous! Not to mention the rude stares from the young ladies at the front. Im so disappointed as I frequent this place & have never had this level of service.

Our food was prepared perfectly, starting with the fried rice and continuing on with the vegetables and noodles, and then the shrimp, salmon, and steak were all cooked flawlessly. Absolutely delicious. On top of this, Tyson was extremely skilled, and he was hugely entertaining. Our entire experience was lively and fun. Totally worthwhile. A five-star experience from beginning to end. I can hardly wait to go back.

Second round of drinks took way too long….We didn’t get our second round of drinks until after meal/chief was done.And very sad to hear you do not take multiple coupons any longer.If I “earn” a coupon through a loyalty program I should be able to use that with a regular coupon/special as well being a “loyal” customer.

Comment: If I could give -1 star rating I would. One star is definitely one star too many. The food and service has drastically declined over the years. We had reservations for 4:30pm and didn’t get seated until 5:15ish. Once seated it took another 15 minutes before our server came to take our orders but he ended up being a nice young man. He took our orders and started bringing out the complementary soup and salad that comes with your entree. Neither of these dishes were anything close to the quality they used to be. The soup had a very intensely bitter taste and the salad that used to be so simple yet elegant was cheap and floating in watery dressing. We had a party of 5 and no one could stomach the soup or salad. It took another 30 minutes for the “chef” to finish another table before he got to our table. The chef barely cooked or seasoned any of the vegetables, the quality of the “dipping” sauces was poor as well ( especially the spicy mustard sauce ). I really hate to have to complain about what used to be one of my favorite restaurants. I know I won’t be going back.

Comment: Firstly, why have reservations if you are not going to seat people at that time. I waited an hour to be seated, and almost another to eat, Id already had not eaten that day in anticipation of my daughters birthday meal, so this was very annoying. Then they combined our party with another set of people, absolutely unacceptable. My plate looked like a tire had been parked on it, next time LOOK at your dishes because my plate did not look clean or it should have been taken out of circulation. My drink was sub par, not worth the price. The salad was drowning in dressing.. terrible. The soup tasted like hot dishwater. The food was good, but I will think long and hard before I will come back here for a meal. They did not deserve the tip either, customer service was missing some elements.

Comment: Wow, what an experience! We (2 of us] arrived w/o reservations and were told it would be 45 mins to an hour. We were seated 15 mins later with a group of 6. There was a plastic partition between us and the other party. We waited a fairly long time to get our waiter and put a beverage order in , and also a pretty good wait to get our chef. But it wasnt bad at all, it was a fun time. Our chef was PHENOMENAL! Food was delicious! Adult beverages were a bit pricey, but they at least had alchohol in them! We had a great time, and I would LOVE to go back. :)

Comment: Second time here and it confirms that I won’t return. Even with a reservation we waited an hour to be seated. Once seated it took another 15min for the waiter to bring soup & salad... then an additional 20min for the chef to finally come... the food was bland, you pretty much have to drown it in sauce to bring out any flavor, and the steak is low quality... chewy and fatty. And to top it off, the drinks were very watered down. I wanted to like this place, but it’s a hard no for me. This location has got to do better.

Comment: Love hibachi grills, first time there last Saturday and my food was delicious but their hot sauce was lacking. It was a great experience for me. But my wife and 2 others at our grill were not happy. When it came for the shrimp toss, my wife said she didn’t want it and the guy was told, several times that 2 people at our table are allergic to shellfish, he still threw it at them. Great food but the hibachi guy never seemed to listen when we told him something like he was off in his own world of “performance” and not really caring about his customers. Love the food, need better service.

Comment: I enjoyed the chef as he was friendly, engaging and funny. The prices are appropriate and reasonable for the quantity of food received. However, my dish left me flat and wanting. My biggest gripe is that the food wasnt that flavorful and quite salty. I make better salmon and shrimp at home. However, the vegetables were awesome 👍, if I ever go back I will get the fresh grilled vegetables/mushrooms and add tofu if possible.

Comment: Perfect place for a first, second, third or whatever number date youre on. Took my girlfriend here for her birthday and she LOVED it...and I did too...first time for both of us. Very entertaining....and the food was awesome....and I am a HUGE foodie...and we ended up taking half to go because we couldnt finish it all lol The staff was very friendly and professional...the cook was very cool to watch....the drinks were perfect (I recommend the Zombie).FYI....I also recommend calling ahead and make a reservation due to precautions against covid-19.

Comment: Wonderful dining experience all around. Though it may take a bit to get seated and served the wait is absolutely gone from your mind by the time your chef arrives and begins preparing the food. The professionalism and talent of each chef I saw was top notch and the food was splendid. A bit on the high side of price but for the everything you get out of it, its worth every penny.Will definitely be back in the future c:

Comment: Was EXTREMELY crowded when we went making it hard to focus and hear the people at my table and focus on our hibachi person. The food was good per usual.The birthday celebration was not good at all with just a random little drum and lack luster singing od happy birthday.I will go back to Kobes eventually, just not to the Westport location.

Comment: I love the food as always!!Our server seemed a bit disorganized. She brought out the soup at the same time that our cook arrived, and it was cold. It took a very long time for drinks to be served as well. Our cook was entertaining and interacted with us and made sure everything was to our liking so the overall experience was still amazing despite the early hiccups.

Comment: Was surprised by the number of diners but everything was great. Appreciated the plastic dividers between my party and the other diners at our table. A wonderful experience after being inside for months due to Covid.

Comment: Praiwan made the most exciting meal. He had a great sense of humor and outstanding cooking skills. The bartender was also on point. Cant wait to come back!Update!! This review WAS 5 stars. 3 years of excellent food and service was ruined in one night. Apparently this was my cooks first night. The food was under cooked and no show or flare during the meal. My food was tasteless and half raw. The management Emily came to apologize. Emily said she would discount my food 15% for my experience! Like seriously? 😳 My husband and I cant even eat the visibly uncooked food but your going to let me pay for it with a discount. Umm I think not! I asked for my food to be remade. It was 9:45pm on a Saturday night. Emily said it would take at least 2 hours before she would have time to make it! I paid for my drinks then left. This was a horrible experience!

Comment: Me and my family had our first visit yesterday you can definitely expect us back soon. The food was amazing! My daughter who is 7 enjoyed the entertainment and the jokes from our chef she thought he had magic the way he tossed the bowl behind his back. “lol“ I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this place. Also big thank you to the manger she even came up to see how everything tasted. I never really leave reviews but this place definitely deserved it.See you guys soon

Comment: Bartender Mandy was very knowledgeable and took care of us during our short wait before the table was ready. The show they put on while making the food is always entertaining and fun. The filet was tender, shrimp was delicious and the chicken was also very good! Definitely go for the fried rice!

Comment: Really enjoyed this location, my only complaint is the wait time, even with reservations, which you need on a busy Saturday, there was a wait. But once seated, the food and service was great! Great presentation, moderately priced, you get a lot of food. I will most definitely go back, just not on a Saturday night.

Comment: Love the presentation and corny jokes. Food has always been great no matter what we choose. Its been awhile since we visited last and we wanted to try the new location.Compared to the old location, I do miss as the mini fountain, the yin/yang vibe and the little bridge. New decor is more modern feeling as are the prices. Still a lot of food for the price but my wallet did sting a little afterwards.

Comment: Amazing experience! Depending on what you order, you don’t even need an appetizer. We went for a date night and got sooo much food! I got shrimp and scallops which came with a light soup, and a salad. Plus you get vegetables too. I couldn’t finish it all so I go a to go plate. Great food and our cook was funny and entertaining! Definitely recommended and I can’t wait to go back!

Comment: This visit was excellent! Went here for my birthday with my family and everyone ate good, laughed hard, and enjoyed the show of our food being cooked Japanese style. My kids got a kick out of the huge flames rising from the grill. Always a great time when I come here.

Comment: Highly recommend Kobes. All of the food was fresh and clean. The quality was beyond measurable. The staff was really entertaining. The price we paid for 3 people was a steal. Quality establishment all around! All restaurants need to study Kobes for a profitable but affordable restaurant. Kudos to Kobes!

Comment: Very good food and the person who prepares your meal is very entertaining. Not where you want to go for an intimate dinner due to the noise level but great for a work dinner or when you would prefer not to chat too much.

Comment: Me and my family drove almost two hours to eat here for a birthday celebration. We made a reservation for 5:30pm and showed up at 5:10pm. We were given a buzzer and told to enjoy a seat at the bar or on the couch lining the walls while we wait. We went back right at 5:30pm. The waitress took our drink and food orders along with the 4 others we were happily placed with. A few moments later the Chef arrived and it was show time! He greeted us all and started go crazy with his tools!!! Granted one spatula slipped out his hand and went flying in between 2 people. No one got hurt and he showed sincere worry and made sure everyone was okay before continuing. He was amazing to watch and he was very good at what he does! The food was amazing. It is a little expensive but the quality of food mixed with the entertainment made it very much worth it!! About $30 a person is what we spent. We loved this place so much that we will be defiantly making the 2 hour drive again just to re live the experience! The chef was amazing, the portions where out standing, the food was delicious, and next time ill have to try the saké and stay in the hotel right next to it! I hope this review helps you make the decision to go and try this place out, i promise you will not regret it!! P.s. sorry for not the best photos and not more, the food was to amazing to focus on my phone!

Comment: I took my wife and kids there and we all had a great experience. The view from the 12th story is a nice feature and the decor is calming and well done. The staff were all accommodating and always friendly. The hibachi cook was very personable and his skills were on point. The food was delicious. They start by bring soup and salad to all. Im not a fan of most asian soups, but the salad is good. I ordered the hibachi shrimp, kids ordered the chicken, and the wife ordered the steak. We all had fried rice, vegetables, mushrooms, and noodles with our entrees. We all shared tastes and I was most impressed with the shrimp followed by the fillet steak. They make you several meals worth of food and we all had to take leftovers home. They have a decent drink menu and I recommend the blue raspberry saki. Purists may not approve of my fruity chilled saki, but I could not get enough. Have no fear, though, they do offer warm saki as well. We havent tried desserts there yet, but if the other parts of the menu provide any clues, Im sure they are delightful. Pull the trigger and go, the showy cooking makes the meal that much more fun.

Comment: I like the food here its just its confusing. First of all they let you know a long wait time and that seems like its discouraging. Then my server seem like she couldnt hear us. Their Rewards program is different from the other Kobe Rewards so I couldnt use my $10 off coupon but to end this all on a good note the food here taste great and our chef Nero was the best weve ever had since coming to Kobes here and in Orlando if he ever decides to come to Orlando I I would come to Kobes every week
