    The price has gone way up and the quality does not match the price. Using a lot more fillers to make you think you are getting a lot of food. Beverage prices (non alcoholic) are crazy.

    Have been to Kobe's several times. First time at this location. Did not have to wait long to be seated. Waiter was prompt taking order. Took a while for Chef to come and prepare order's. Food was flavored well, compared to other locations that were somewhat bland. Portion size on sides were good. Protein portions should be improved, especially with the $$ cost. Drink prices are high, especially soft drinks. I opted for 🍷. Gratuity is added (be aware). Overall not bad

    We went on a Saturday night to celebrate our kids birthdays. When we were seated the advised us to leave 2 seats open. The had put another couple at the same table as us knowing we were celebrating an event. The food this time was ok due to the restrictions of the couple. I feel that if you have a party of 6 then you should be able to enjoy a dinner with your own family. If you know the people have food restrictions put the with people that aren't have those particular items. The food and "show" was definitely not as exciting as it was the previous times.

    Love Kobe’s our fourth trip in 60 days with family The only gripe I have every time we’ve gone we have a reservation at a set time, but still have to wait for a table. They need to find a way to ensure if you have a 530 reservation, you are seated at that time!!

    Kobe Japanese Steakhouse - AlafayaResponded 6 days agoThank you for your feedback. Due to our unique communal seating arrangement at the Teppanyaki table, our reservations are based on Priority Seating, which will offer you the shortest available wait time when you check in and your party is complete. Our goal is to seat priority seating within a 15 minutes window but sometimes many celebrations stay longer than expected and cause a delay for your party. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience you may have experienced.

    Service is great, ambience is very nice and the food here is delicious, but you better eat it in under an hour because after 58 minutes there, you get your check and to-go boxes even if you didn't ask for them or haven't finished... You really feel yourself 'rushed' out. If you're a fast eater you're good.
