I try to go here at least once a month and always enjoy the food and service. Very seldom have I ever had a problem, other than running out of my drink. The chefs are funny and seem to be the same every night I go. A+++++++++++++++++.
My wife and I eat here several times a month and it is always very good, with excellent service. They are currently running some specials on sushi that makes it even more enticing!
Recently, their sushi chef, Teddy, returned home, and we were concerned that his replacement may not be as good (Teddy is AMAZING), but we have been back several times and he gets better every time.
Yes, it's pricey, but it's worth every penny... I'm going to get some for lunch!
RE post below: Who cares what race the chef is? haha how trivial... That's like complaining that it rained the day you went, it has nothing to do with the food.
Anyway, the wife and I go here 3-4 times a month. All of the wait staff is great and the food keeps us coming back. We drive an extra 20 minutes past 2 other hibachi restaraunts which are much closer to come to Kobe. 5 stars, avoid the ones in Garner.
We went here friday night and were seated right away. the waitress was good but in a hurry. our table chef was not japanese as we expected from a restaurant like this. he told us he does not eat this food but likes mcdonalds. we ordered a seafood dinner that was mostly rice...2 small scallops, 2 small shrimp...for 2 people! For the price we paid it would have been smarter to go to a take out someplace else. i would not go back here and rate this 2 stars only because of the waitress.
Kobe is a great resturant. Wonderful atmosphere, i go frequently with my boyfriend and we have never sat at a grill table, but the bar food is amazing. The bartender (shane i think) is very nice and attentive he knows alot about sushi and has such a charm you will want to try it. Trust me you do their sushi chef is amazing. I orderd a martini the other day that was awsome actualy every bar drink ive ever had there has been amazing. i would recomend this place to anyone
